I have a Meile front loader and dryer and love it. I've had the set for 10 years and have never had a problem. I feel it is easier on my clothes than a top loader. When we moved (twice), we took the set with us. The washer spins the clothes almost dry; so that it does not take much time for a load to dry in the dryer or to hang dry. I do keep the washer door slightly open after use. I read this was needed for all front loaders to keep mold from growing on the gasket and possibly in the machine itself. So I have always done it. It has never been a problem for me.
