I think I read some where that they are not recommended as you don't need as much laundry soap as a full size washer. I use 1/4 cup HE Gain liquid, seems to do good with that. Your manual will tell you how much to use.

We use the Tide Pods in our combo unit and haven't had any problems

I believe the pods are NOT recommended. We use the liquid detergent and softener, no problems. REMEMBER the drain hose positioning.

2100XC install experience on 37TB

bigben - You mentioned this in your post:
"Take a page from our book also, make sure that the drain hose is even with the back edge of the W/D. If it gets lower, the W/D keeps fill and emptying. It eventually does wash but takes about 4 hours."
Not sure I understand exactly what you mean here. I just installed a 2100XC in my 37TB and ended up moving the hot/cold valves and electrical outlet to the center closet for easier access to shutting off the water and electricity. I left the drain where it was and added about 7 inches of PVC to the drain so it could be reached once the W/D was installed. I secured the W/D drain to the PVC drain without cutting the W/D drain hose, left it the original length. Do you see a potential issue here?
The dryer vent I also routed over to the center closet so I can poke a hole in the fiberglass wall so it penetrates thru a solid black color on the outside of the slider. The outside vent cover will be painted black so it blends in nicely with the outside color scheme.
