Seriously, I’m not sure how they got this to work, but I have those excellent Maytag Neptune washer-dryer combos that cost as much as a small car. One of the things they promote in the advertising/sales literature is the fact that they are “synchronized.” I have no idea how this is supposed to work, we never bothered to ask. We just figured ALL wash cycles and ALL dry cycles lasted exactly the same amount of time, or something like that.
But that can’t be true because you can LOAD these suckers up, and they do take longer if you’ve packed in a load of towels, versus doing a few delicates. But every once in a while, I’ll be doing laundry and both the washer and dryer finish at the same time. It’s very wierd, and the reason I mention it is that it just happened now. The washer finished, and then the dryer finished about 30 seconds later. Great stuff.
