Splendide 2100XC – Review
A review of the Splendide 2100XC Washer/Dryer.
Life on the road is fun, there’s no doubt about that, but when all that fun can be counted by the number of BBQ sauce splashes on your favorite t-shirt it means only one thing; laundry time. Laundry is not so fun on the road, especially when you have to drag all the dirty clothing out of the RV and go hunt for a public Laundromat. If the chore of laundry time feels that it’s taking away from your trip, maybe you should look into a RV washer and dryer.
Space is a major concern in an RV, and no one wants to use the dryer as a kitchen table simply because living space is so cramped. With the Splendide 2100XC Washer/Dryer combo, that doesn’t have to be an issue. Splendide is a company that focuses on space-saving laundry appliances and they’ve been at it for over two decades. By merging the washing machine and the dryer in to one unit, the appliance is compact enough to fit into many places.
The Splendide 2100XC comes in two color options; white and platinum. The platinum version is a silver-grey type color that looks great, especially if you have similar looking appliances. Your RV may have a space dedicated to RV washing machines. If not, you can dedicate a closet space or cabinet for the unit. Full dimensions of the Splendide 2100XC are 33 1/8″ high x 23 1/2″ wide x 23 3/8″ deep. At 148 lbs. the appliance is lighter than previous machines. If you are replacing an older unit, you shouldn’t have any problems putting this one in its place.
Despite its compact size, the Splendide 2100XC is built to be tough and powerful. The machine was made for RV and marine use. With durable internal components, the washer/dryer is strong enough for life on the road. The maximum spin speed of the unit is a whopping 1200 RPM. Unlike other RV washer/drier combos, the Splendide 2100XC is installed as a vented system. This greatly improves the time it takes to dry clothing, as moist air is sent outdoors.
The internal drum is generously large for an RV unit, and can hold up to 15 lbs. of clothes for washing. However, packing the machine tight will put pressure on the drying system. The drying cycle can only handle 11 lbs. We recommend leaving a little room when you load the drum so that the dryer can work properly. The door is quite large at 11 ½” in diameter, which makes for easy loading and unloading.
The Splendide 2100XC comes with all of the modern features of a washer and drier, such as a dispenser for detergent, bleach and fabric softener, different temperature and speed settings for washing, different heat settings for drying, and a “Add an Item” feature if you forgot to throw your dirty socks in the first time. We really liked how the machine has all the settings that you would find on your home washer and drier. With prewash, heavy duty, permanent press and delicate cycles, there aren’t going to be many articles of clothing that you can’t launder. The clothes do seem to wrinkle a lot if packed tight and dried on high heat. If you’re not in a huge rush to get a lot of clothes cleaned though, a looser load and a lower heat setting will reduce the wrinkling.
The Splendide 2100XC is a great addition to the RV. With its compact design, durable build, modern features and convenience, it will help to keep you out of the public Laundromat so you can enjoy more time with your family. Just try to be a little more careful with the BBQ sauce.
