Re: Combo Washer and Dryer... Vented or not ?

Have you ever seen the rotted siding next to the dryer vent on a house. I would be concerned about hot humid steam causing other trouble.

We also have the non-vented. We try to use as much micro-fiber as possible, which dries very easily. For other items, we run the dry cycle for the shortest period (I can't recall if its 20 or 30 mins). If you take it out warm, it seems to dry faster when hung up.

The bigger problem is the units are very small and its easy to overload them. Overloading really takes forever to dry. In fact, if you do dry cottons in an overloaded drier, they come out wrinkled and creased. Nothing ever tumbles around.
