    Default Washing machine recommendations please!

    Our washing machine has just died after 8 years so I need to get another one ASAP, but I'm scared of picking a dud!
    We need one in the low-mid price range and i want another front loader.
    Please recommend yours if you have a great one! Particularly if you've had it a while and it's still going strong

    We have a LG front loader. We've had it 3 years now and never had a problem. I wash minimum once daily but most days more like 2-3 loads. It's the first front loader I've ever had and I love it.

    We got a big 10kg one with a steam function so it may be more than you want to spend. However my mum has a smaller LG - 7kg I think - and hers is going on 5+ years now. It was the reason we went with LG.

    I know what one not to get, the Harvey Norman brand (ariston) it seems to wash well but the door jams so I have to give it a kick just to unlock it and the mould discoloration around the rubber inside is disgusting. The best one I have had was a Samsung IQ front loader but unfortunately the removalists damaged it in our move. Was a good 7 years old and still going strong before it was broke.

    We have a bosch front loader- not the $2000 german made one but the $650 asian made one. From the good guys. It is fabulous! And it has a short cycle option which i really like. Cant fault it.

    Thanks for the recommendations!

    I have a Samsung now which lasted 8 or 9 years which I think is pretty good, but they don't seem to have one in my price range at the moment.

    I will check out the lg and Bosch models

    We've got an asko 8kg I think the weight is. Around $1800 and you can get extended warranties aswell to draw it out to 4/5yrs. My mum has had hers for 12yrs no issues at all. Both our front loaders

    Love my fisher and paykel top loader..I have the 10kg one (I think- it's the really big one). Fits so much and senses the load to use only required water.

    I'm going to buy a new machine soon. I currently have a 10+ year old Simpson 5kg front loader. I've pretty much decided on the 10kg lg front loader. I really want a bigger machine and this one ticks all my boxes, looked good in the shops and reviews seem pretty good too.
