Buying a washer / dryer can help cut time spent hanging clothes out to dry or fitting them over radiators – when full-capacity loads are washed, finding space for every item to dry can be frustrating. With a washer / dryer, this is no longer a problem. Indesit’s competitively-priced IWDD7143S washer / dryer has received positive feedback from buyers, with most recommending it to fellow households searching for a high-quality solution.
This appliance provides 12 wash programmes, including Cotton, Easy Iron, Intensive, Mixed Load, Spin and Drain, and Sports. There are also 3 dryer programmes, making a total of 15 – plenty for the average household, with a cycle for most fabrics and stains (no matter how stubborn).
While this isn’t as energy-efficient as some other machines on the market, with an energy rating of ‘B’, it still stands at the higher end of the scale (with G at the bottom). However, one strong feature many buyers enjoyed was the noise levels – this is a very quiet machine, which is a big help for people looking to wash items at night or early in the morning.
The Indesit IWDD7143S features Reverse Action, which loosens clothes towards the end of a cycle, leading to less creasing and, of course, less ironing (a key benefit for many buyers). Sensor Drying uses a sensor to trigger the cycle into a cool tumble once clothes are dry – saving on energy and stopping clothes & fabrics from becoming over-dried.
Fuzzy Logic is another feature built into this Indesit washer / dryer, using sensor technology to monitor the load inside – this adjusts itself to provide top results while drawing on as little energy and water as possible (controlling water temperature, water intake, rinse performance, and spin speed). The Delay Timer also means users can schedule a wash to begin at a specific time – ideal for households with unusual work-patterns or special requirements.
This is a well-designed, sleek, attractive appliance, with a clear LED display, simple instructions, and a guide to programmes / settings on the face. The maximum wash load it can take is 7 kg, which is equal to 35 adult T-shirts, with 5 kg for a drying load; this means users must take the laundry out before drying and remove certain items to create space.
For most buyers, the Indesit IWDD7143S is an excellent purchase, providing a wide range of programmes, easy-use, and an effective time-saving drying feature.
