Just got back from the Bonty 24-12, with a heap of washing and a very moist sumo suit, to find the washing machine has pretty much expired. The bearings have been on the way out for a while, but it now sounds like a cross between a chinook spinning up and a steam locomotive at full chat. This can't be good (and I just hope it makes it through this wash without distributing machine parts and shredded washing all around the kitchen.
So any recommendations?
Budget is a bit tight as I've just had the boiler replaced last week (these little problems are like buses ) but want something that is going to last a bit longer than this Hotpoint - about 3 years - and is relatively quiet. Oh and simple - I only need 2 wash settings - colours and white - I don't buy the missus fancy underwear or anything like that
And please don't say Miele, I'd rather spend my money on bike bits
