Our new flat has a combo washer/dryer unit for clothes. I'm wondering what experience people are having with these as far as time wise--how long to do a full load of laundry. My last flat had one and it was easily about 3-4 hours from start to finish, and with a couple of kids (and tons of laundry) I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to keep up doing the laundry in house. During our last stay we ended up finding a place that did it for us as we couldn't manage with just the one combo.
Would a dehumidifier in the washer/dryer room speed things up a bit? Or have some punted and bought a standalone dryer to run separately?
