Well, today out five year old front loading 7kg Electrolux Time Manager washing machine has bitten the dust... Yup, just outside f the extended warranty period pretty disappointed, I'm sure appliances used to last longer than this!
Apparently the drum has come off it's bearings and is wobbling (has been making funny noises for a while) and the band that keeps the drum connected to the motor and spinning has finally come off and will keep coming off if put back on now pretty gutted. Spending money on a new washing machine - just what we want 7 weeks before bub is due!
Anyways, anybody have a good recommendation for a washing machine? We have a teeny tiny laundry and have to stack the washing machine and dryer, so I'd prefer another front loader, but DH is pushing for a top loader because someone told him they last longer. No idea where he is thinking the dryer will live :/ any ideas on that one appreciated too I guess haha!
