I had one once at an apartment I was in and it was horrible. So small and took forver to dry anything and it still came out damp… I would reccomend like other pp suggested and either just stick with the washer or maybe re-adjust your laundry room for a stackable. I have a stackable in my new house and love it.

I have one. It came with my condo when I bought it. I HATE IT. It washes fine, but does not dry, everything still comes out damp. Also because of how it dries everything comes out really wrinkly. I hang 90% of my stuff to dry and usually pay the money to throw my sheets in the building dryer every week.

It’s front loading and the rubber around the rim gets filled with gunk and smells funny and you have to clean it pretty regularly (googled and this is a normal problem).

I would get the wall mount if you have the space.

I have an all in one washer dryer by LG that I bought in 2011 that still works. I don’t use it frequently because of the main 2 reasons mentioned by PP’s that it doesn’t dry as well and you can’t start another wash until the first one is dry. I have access to separate washer dryers in my basement and use those most of the time. I am in the US and here they sell stackable washer/dryers. That is what I would recommend you get if they are available. You would have to move that top cabinet. The ones I have seen are usually narrower than typical washer dryers so that may help with it feeling too crowded. I hope that’s helpful! Good luck!

I’ve had occasion to use one and would not recommend at all except as a last resort. 

With children, I would sacrifice cabinet space and a bench  for a full dryer any day of the week. There are always other storage options. Is there no other linen closet in the house? Can you put linens in the bedroom closets where they will be used or in a piece of furniture? In storage containers or shelves?

I had one when I lived in Europe. It took 4+ hours for a wash and dry and at the end clothes were still damp. It also had a lock, so once you started the machine, too bad, you couldn’t open it for 4 hours.
