Stack washer and dryer

I am needing to know which is the better stackable set, the splendide or whirlpool. Never heard of splendide and haven't seen to much as far as reviews go about them. Your opinion is needed. Thanks in advance.

We had the splendide in our last RV and the Whirlpool in our new one and my wife says the whirlpool is better as it run quieter especially the dryer.

we have the Splendide stackable and like them. We had the Splendide single unit in our previous 5vr and not as efficient. Have not owned the Whirlpool.

Splendide is made in Italy. Parts when needed are not as readily available. Whirlpool is more widely distributed in North America and most appliance repair shops can get parts easily.
That said, Splendide is a well made product with good history for lasting quality.

We have the Splendide stackables in our new coach and the wife is very happy with them. We had the Combo in our last coach and had it removed and made a closet out of the space. Can't compare the Whirlpool.

Had them both. Go with the Whirpool, parts are readily available and if a problem most areas have appliance repair techs that don't charge $120.00 per hour to diagnose and repair. JMO.

My Splendide was in the coach when I bought it in '06. We have used it regularly since as full timers. I have had occasion to do two repairs in that time. The US distributor has a customer support line and helped me with trouble shooting and parts were in stock.

We have Splendie in ours. They work well as clothes hampers until the DW is able to take the clothes to the laundry mat. (Her preference) Does not like to do tiny loads at a time. Wants to get it done all at once!

We are happy with our Whirlpool stackables. DW would not do without them!

We are on our second Spendide. No problems with either one and excellent service from their 800#. Whirlpool makes great products, just bought one for the stick house. However, Splendide is built for the abuse of being in a MH, don't know how the Whirlpool will hold up on our roads.

We have had both, Splendid dryer was a little noisy and had a switch burn out under warranty and was taken care of immediately. Have Whirlpool in new coach and like them also.

We have Whirlpool. Use them quite a bit. Pretty quiet. Easy to winterize. No experience with Slendide.

We had Splendide in our Komfort, Whirlpool in this one. Wife says Whirlpool all the way. She says the Whirlpool washer holds more and the dryer is faster. I just nod my head....
