Just starting out being F/T RVers as we both just retired. Never needed a washer before due to short trips, but now that we will be spending months at a time looking for help with types of washers that hold up my rig is set-up for a washer/dryer already.
Thanks for any help.

We've had a MayTag stacked washer dryer in our 5th wheel since 1996. It's still going strong. Also have a MayTag stacked set in our house. Both have provided years of trouble free service.

They do a great job of cleaning and drying the clothes.

We replaced our combo Splendide washer/dryer with an Ariston stacked washer and dryer . . . about $1700 for both,

Does that mean you'll be spending a lot of time in RV parks?

Have a Splendide since camper was new (about 4 years) worked fine till couple weeks ago it wouldn't finish the wash cycle and is throwing a h5 code I think. It worked good but I don't think I will replace it with another Splendide. I'm going to take it out and see if I can find a repair shop. If it's too expensive to fix I'm looking at another brand.

Been full time for a bit over 6 years now and have a Splindide 2100XC washer/drier combo and it does great for two people. You will get lots of folks bad mouthing the unit, but it does great provided you read the manual and follow the instructions. You have to realize it is not a home unit.

Call them for tech support before you do to much. I can get you the contact info when I get home. OK, I got home. Call Westland Sales. Ask for Jake if he is still there. 800-356-0766. Have the serial number available.


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

We been about 2 years with the Splindide 2100XC. Like Ken said excellent machine and works well. We don't let laundry build like in the S&B house, do a load every few days while watching TV.

We have a tension rod sets just over the shower enclosure, we hang sheets over night & perma press shirts to take wrinkles out. There customer service is beyond good. I called with and issue, they asked about flashing lights & told me exactly what the issue was. (Self installed & too long an exhaust hose) Never asked when I bought or serial number.

We have the Combo vented unit also from Splendid...Love it. Funny, I had to pull it out yesterday because on the drying cycle it would shut down. Had to de-lint the exhaust. On another note, if you don't mind a scratch and dent unit, you can get on their waiting list to pick up a fully warranted unit for roughly half price.
