    Having had both combo & separate units my 2p:
    Combos sound a great idea but experience says if you are limited to space just go for a good washer as the clothes will come out well spun & only need minimal hanging to dry.

    But combos are Expensive to run, Liable to damage clothes & If you have a backlog of washing it will take an age

    Previously I had hotpoint combo & then hotpoint separates (I managed to get one of the dryers that was prone to catching fire!) then changed to miele & was so impressed that when the dishwasher died I only looked at miele

    Current set up (which has proven the best) is miele separates, the washer spins so well that the very efficient (vented) dryer will dry a clothes load in 27min & bedding load in 43min

    With any dryer there is a risk of fire – are you sure the tenants will regularly clean out the filters? As if they do not & the worse happens your insurance may not pay out

    We get them from Turkey and China now and just stick German sounding name badges on them. (True).

    We have a Beko and the cats love hearing it sing to them when it finishes. Must be 2 years old now, the hotpoint before kept shorting out.
    Ours sings a cheerful tune when it's done too. I think it's a Samsung.

    If there is no space for a separate dryer, then I prefer a washing machine with a high spin speed then I use a clothes horse with a dehumidifier in winter.

    *Drying towels and bedding. Undies dry quickly so why use a dryer?
    This.

    If the room you hang up your washing in is aired properly i.e. windows wide open just for a few minutes, they'll be dry in a jiffy, no need for a dryer, or dehumidifier.
    I'm alright Jack

    Doesn't work in winter especially if there is drizzle outside.

    Also the dehumidifier ensures all the water vapour in my house is decreased as my property was built without double glazing and central heating.

    I saw those, I thought they were extremely tasteful
