    Default Re: What washing machine do you have?

    I have a 10kg Samsung front loader with direct drive. The cotton cycle is the longest at 2 hours but I just use daily wash at 52 mins... Spins at 1400rpm and I absolutely love it! I always owned top loaders and was hesitant to make the swap... Because I got such a large machine everything gets washed really well and the fact it spins at 1400 seriously.... The washing is practically dry after all that spinning!

    I have an LG front loader washer/dryer. It does 9kg for wash and 4.5-5kg for dry cycle.

    My dad bought it for me as a gift (and since my old one was cr@p!) about 2 years ago.

    My only complaint is over the last 12 months it gets 'stuck' on the rinse/spin cycle. You have to turn it off and tilt it forward to drain the water out from the bottom front.

    Apart from that issue it's pretty good. My friend got a Samsung 9 or 10kg top loader about a year ago and still can't stop raving about it so that might be another option.

    We have a Hoover I think. It's only 5.5kg. Either way I love it. Bought it second hand (it was 2 when we bought it). Paid $50. Best money spent.

    You can check and see if there is something stuck in the drain pipe. If that isn't the problem you probably need a new pump. We had ours replaced on our LG last year and it cost about $200. Money well spent!

    We have the 8/4kg LG washer dryer combo and it has been an absolute workhorse. I can't fault it.

    It also has a cool steam function.

    After much googling, I found this to solve the problem (well sort of). I don't mind so much in summer, but one of the deciding factors when we purchased it, was its 1400rpm cycle. It just irritates me

    Also after doing my washing this morning, I remembered to add:I have to wash towels in between the lights/whites and darks otherwise my lights/whites end up with marks/stains from the darker clothes.
