What washing mashine?
molgrips – I agree and find the infexibility of those machines intolerable.
I have a Bosch thingy and fortunately it does allow you to adjust spin and temp independently but my mothers Hotpoint doesn’t.
Am I really having this conversation?
I do clean my bike clothes in it several times a week and it’s going strong after 6 years.
ooo whats that thumping noise down stairs? best go and look.
Any one got any jokes to spin this thread out a bit further?Posted 9 years agothegreatapeMember
Too late for the OP I know, but after I dismantled our old washer drier and tried to improve it, I looked here
and also here (related to the first one IIRC)
and got the Zanussi one from John Lewis. Has been fine so far. Wanted to try the ISE one but MrsApe over ruled.Posted 9 years ago
BEAMERS, the lg are great but if something goes wrong parts cost a lot, i have never changed a motor on lg ever, and i covered south wales for the last 8 years for them, good machines, but anything can go wrong, i sometimes work for the whateverhappens policy and it is the best in the business, last week on a lg a coin from pocket had smashed the drum and tub and water leaked out and blew board a very very expensive repair but it dont matter as whateverhappens covers everything from machine not plugged in when i call, to overloaded it and tripped a sensor, to put hand wash powder in it, and blew everything up with suds to left a spannner in your pocket and wrecked everything it covers everything, even leaving a condom in your pocket which i pull out of pump in front of customers wife who goes nuts as they dont use condoms, there is no charge
i would def take it on your expensive lg, especially the washer,
and for everyone else lots of manufacturers free parts warrantys mean paying for the labour to get free parts hotpoint currently £106 so if you need a £1 part it costs you £106
buy a cheep washer beko’s are great and take out the whatever happens policyPosted 9 years agodeepreddaveMember
Coincidentally my washer died today (been hitting it to get it started for over a year so that could be a factor:)) Bought a Miele cos of the 5 yr warranty couldn’t ‘afford’ the 10 yr models – and hoping it does what it’s tested to do which is 20yrs….. that’ll make me old enough to need a good washer to get the smell of wee out of my pants!Posted 9 years ago
beamers, machines get replaced if parts are not available which happens with some niche makes, or machines from companys that have gone out of business so parts not available or you need something weird like a cabinet rusted through or gone out of line from being placed on un even floor or caught fire, lg are great but for example servis bearings £10 quid a pair lg £50 to £ 60 normal pump £10 lg £50 still my favs thoughPosted 9 years agostevomcdSubscriber
Just to piggyback on this since there seem to be experts around. The machine in the chalet (a Fagor) is very sick. The whole drum assembly is way out of kilter with the result that the moving parts rub on the casing (making a horrendous noise). Guessing the suspension is humped (whole thing is sitting too low). Are the suspension units repairable or is it new machine time? (since I’m guessing getting hold of replacements is going to be impossible/expensive).
Hey, it’s a washing machine conversation, but I’ve just brought it round to upgrading suspension, too much sag, etc., etc….Posted 9 years agostevomcdSubscriber
Thanks a lot for that! That was indeed the problem so we’re now back to clean clothes (not to mention sheets and towels for the guests!).

Miele machine bought by my grandfather in the 60’s we threw out in 2003 when granny died. It was still going strong.Posted 9 years ago
Bosch washer drier of ours lasted 10 years and had 2 elements in that time due to the hard water.
The current AEG washer drier is going strong after 5 years and no repairs.
