In a condo development that we are doing, we had to go with ventless dryers, so the developer chose the Ariston stack set with the condensor dryer. Washers all did fine, but four of the five dryers started having problems within the first three months ... loud as hell! We ended up pulling the sets and replacing everything with the LG ventless combo machine, which has been great. Now, we are sitting on these dryers and having trouble getting service; any idea what would be the problem with these dryers? He is planning on just selling the washers at a greatly reduced price and throwing the dryers in for the purchasers to get repaired (they still have warranty coverage). Anyone else had this issue or anything to contribute? Thanks so much! Todd

Re: Hi! Todd & Gary:

Hi! Todd and Gary, did you replace the Ariston {USA} Washers and Dryers, with the larger-capacity LG Combo's, I'm assuming? I certainly hope that you don't have any problems with them, like Peterski had with his. How many Machine Units did you have of the Ariston's and how many LG Combo's are replacing them?

Good Luck with the LG's, "BTW" how are you LG Washer and Dryer at home doing, I hope they are still going real good for you.

I'm still happy with my Compact Combo, other than the Capacity and the length of time it can take for a full Cycle of Wash, Dry and the Cool-Down. That is why I put a Compact Kenmore 110-Volt Dryer on top of my LG Compact Combo, so I can Dry a Load, while Washing another Load. As I've mentioned in another Posting Thread, I do once in a while a full Cycle, just to make sure that everything stays running smoothly. I just did a Load of Whites, including Underware, Socks and Towels and I split the Load between the Combo and the Kenmore Compact Dryer. The Underware and Socks are being Dried in the Kenmore and the Towels are being Dried in the Combo. After the Towels are Dried {see below} next Paragraph.

The only other thing that I don't really like about my LG Compact Combo and it might be all Combo's that are Condensor Drying, is that when I take the Laundry out, after a complete Cycle of Washing & Drying, I don't like the smell of everything. It gives a smell of Steam, so I put everything that was Washed & Dried in the Combo, into my Compact Kenmore Dryer, for about a 15-minute Time-Dry Cycle, to freshen-up the smell of the Laundry.

Peace, Great Laundry Days, with your LG Combo's, Steve

Steve, we have 22 units and have sold 12 thus far. The first five had the Ariston stacks and those were the problematic dryers ... we pulled those and replaced with the smaller LG combo machines and have been using those in the rest of the units. Due to poor space planning, we couldn't go to the larger combo machines. My LG at home is still doing great; it lived through the 2+ feet of floodwater from Katrina. The dryer had to be replaced after the flood.
Back to the Ariston dryers ... started out well, but the noise grew with each load until they sounded like you were drying a load of rocks mixed with alittle airplane noise. So, its time to cut our losses and move on. Good to hear from you, Steve. Todd
