We need to buy a new washing machine and I'm not sure where to start. Ours is a very old and small LG, which was second hand when we got it.
Can anyone suggest the best brands and/or functions that you like about your machine? I think we will be getting a front loader, probably 8kg.
Thanks for any help

Anything Fisher & Pykell is usually pretty good quality.

Cant recomment LG enough! Though I must say I prefer top loaders (personal preference).
If you are interested in top loaders check out the LG Inverter Direct Driver. Can set it to autmoatically detect the size and weight of the clothes and it will auto select the right level of water based on that. Or you can manually choose whatever wash cycle.
Has a child lock, 10 year motor warranty and what I love is that I can fit all the sheets, quilt covers etc into one load, or all of the better halfs work clothes in one load (8kg machine).

We got a brand new pye top loader from joyce mayne (similar to harvey norman) for under $400, it's 8 kg.
It's really easy to use and so far we haven't had any problems with it.

I've never had an issue while preg- my front loader is on the ground, and it's easy enough to throw everything in.
