i lived on my own in AZ where a washer/dryer was a given in any apartment, in TX where I live now you have to specifically ask for one at just about any apt complex...which of course I did! But how ridiculous is that?!

I am so jealous of all you washer/dryer people. i have to go to the basement and pay like 3 dollars a load for wash and dry. :( :(

I have just a washer, no dryer. It didn't come with the apartment, I bought it, and it only cost about $40 because I bought a refrigerator at the same store. It's great having my own washing machine and I don't mind the lack of a dryer. Line-drying saves energy and is better for the clothes.

I don't have one yet but I'll probably buy one next month. I can't live without a washing machine.

I put "communal laundry room" because I live in a dorm at college and will soon be living in a sorority house. I don't think I could ever live without a washer/dryer though!

We just moved into our own condo (our first) last September, and I think having our own washer and dryer was the best thing about it. We got the LG Steam Washer and Dryer (in RED!) and I LOVE THEM!!! We used to live in campus Family Housing (my husband is a grad student), and it was such a pain doing laundry. There were always tons of people doing laundry because every one (except us) had kids. Plus, I was always afraid that somebody was going to accidentally leave bleach in one of the washers and my clothes would be ruined. Laundry used to be such a big headache, and now I don't mind it at all. Plus, I don't have to iron as many things now. I can just throw them in the dryer for a bit. :)

no, i haven't got a washer/dryer of my own. and i hate going to the laundromat. so i use laundry service. i send the clothes away dirty, they come back to me clean and smelling good and neatly folded. though i would much prefer my own washer/dryer.

I'm so glad that my apartment came with w/d. I've always had to deal with a communal laudry room or going to a laundromat everywhere else I've lived since I've been on my own, and it makes life so much easier to just have it in my apartment.

I wish! I live in the city, so it's pretty rare. I use the laundry room on the entry level of my building, but my apartment is 5 flights up!! It is definitely a workout, though better than having to go to the laundrymat...I had to do that at my last place - not fun!!

I live in an old house converted into two apartments and we used to have free laundry in the basement but then our downstairs neighbor, the 'manager', moved out and took them with him! We're still trying to replace them a month later! For now it's off to the laudromat.

As of this past Saturday, YES! Spent the last 2 years living in complexes with coin laundry. Amazing how nice it is to stop saving quarters!

My flatmates and I did the maths when we moved in to our house, and realised over the 3 years we're living here it was cheaper for all of us to chip in and buy a washer/dryer than go to the laundrette every two weeks!

Sometimes, you have to make the decision between off-street parking and your own washer/dryer... :sigh:

I just moved into my new condo which has my first ever washer/dryer hidden away in a closet! It's the most exciting thing! Before that it was dragging everything to the tiny little laundromat five blocks away.

Bah. I hate the laundromat. But of course, i gotta go. There is nothing like finding someone else's thongs stuck to the inside of the washer.

I do now but next year I'll have to use a commercial laundromat and I'm not looking forward to dragging my clothes uphill

I have a washing machine but I don't like dryers, they're wasteful and expensive to run. We have radiators and a washing line in the garden and that's where things dry.I can't believe so many people DON'T have a washer, here I think it would be very rare not to have one, but there are a lot of laundrettes opening up so maybe that's no longer the case. They're really expensive here though, €6 ($9) per load, and I'm very careful about separating things and washing them properly so i really wouldn't be into washing them all together in a big, industrial machine and paying through the nose for it!

I don't have w/d in my apartment now and I drag my laundry to my parents house about 40 minutes away every Sunday to avoid paying the $1.50 in each machine for each load... Which is a huge pain! I am moving at the end of the summer though and the new place has washer dryer hook-ups so my fiancé and I are buying a set with our tax rebates! It was actually really difficult to find apartments with washer/dryer in unit or even hook-ups though.
