I know there's one type (Electrolux) whereby you can stack the dryer on top of the washing machine - saves space. My FH's sis is using them. Heard they are fine so far, used for abt 1 year plus already. My FH is intending to buy the same type for our new flat too....
Yes, Electrolux or maybe most of their models can be stack. What they do is that they mount the dryer on top of the washing machine but they have to remove the top cover of the washing machine. I think you might need to pay for the bracket or stacking tray.
The dryer is always on the top as it is much lighter. . . and remember if you are looking for a dryer look out for a feature that has sensor drying as it is better as we are not in any position to determine the number of hours or min needed to dry the clother and overheating to the clother = no good. It will spoil your clother and remember not all clothing can use a dryer.
I am not too sure if they have . . . think they should thou in the past most of the dryer are using timer but consumer are getting smarter so I believed most higher end dryer or better know ones should have.
Hi, Just bought an electrolux front load washing machine and a dryer.. and now the thing is my wife telling me she has prefered Bosch washing machine and dryer. Hmm, anyone had experience with Electrolux washing machine? We bought at Harvey norman, the sale assitant kept emphasis that Elctrolux is No.1 Front Load in Europe and Bosch is only the No.1 brand in Europe (including the drills, machines etc). So he told me Electrolux Front Load Washing machine is better. Now quite confused, should I stick to having Electrolux or should I change to Bosch better?
yup thats what most of the sales man promotes to me as well..kept saying that the electrolux is the best one! btw maybe you would like to purchase your washing machines from euromart or goh ah bee or mega discount stores? can save $$$ just get the model and give them a call..
My family has been using our Electrolux front loading washing machine for the last 15 years. Although the surface is worn and old, it is still functioning perfectly. Never had any probs with this machine so far. I intend to get back this brand when I move to my new home
15 years.. wow that's very long.. However, have you guys noticed the metal catch at the door for Electrolux? the Bosch is plastic catch.. the sales people says its to cut cost.. hmm.. but then again the Bosch internal drum is all stainless steel and Electrolux is combination of stainless steel and plastic. And my wife was saying the Bosch drum has more holes and can drain water better than Electrolux hence dryer?
The sales people told me Electrolux for 7 years is ok, but 15 years... wow..
Yeah I was surprised that it managed to last so long too. Mine is totally stainless steel for the inside drum. I have dumped all kinds of stuff inside - clothes, soft toys, bedsheets, and they came out dry, even for the toys. Only need half a day of sunning b4 they are 100% dry. So I see no worries about the dry part.
Did some research on washing machines. My 2 cents. Both Electrolux and Bosch washing machines are reputable - won't go wrong if you buy them. So depends on how you like the design, some commented that Bosch is easier to use.
Brandt is pretty new to the market, not as established as the other 2. Thomson used to make very good machines, but nowadays the quality not as good.
The only major reason why people buy a separate dryer is that if you have a washer/dryer machine, the drying capacity is normally half the washing load of the machine. So say your wash load of your machine is 7kg, the drying capacity is only 3.5 kg....so meaning you will have to take out some clothes while using the dryer. Ma fan la to some people.
hi. from what i know, you should ask the salesperson about how much water they require. some say 49l and some are 59l. some also go by 49l for each wash but some mean 49l for every rinse...have to ask properly. Spin speed is also important too coz if your washer can make clothes drier thru spinning, your dryer does not need to work as hard
have decided to get an electrolux washer and dryer after comparing with borch ones.the salesperson recommended to me saying that the catch is made of metal so can withstand opening and closing for longer time.
I bought Electrolux Top loader washer. It will be delivered this coming sat...hehe...not sure good or not. Always tot i will buy Thomson but ended up buying electrolux cos the sales person told me the pros and cons of the 2 brands.
Nowaday, washer only warranty for 1 years on parts but the engine think still hv 5 yrs warranty.
He said tat Thomson used to be a very good brand but ever since its bought over by Brandt, there's change in their washer design. Washer shd hv 3 arms...stronger movement and clothes would be cleaner, the filter is at the bottom of the washer so one needs to really put hands into the washer to take it out. Then electrolux do not need to wait a second to open the door once the washer stop. then the electrolux internal door latch is better as is all stainless steel, the water spray is better than Thomson as wont get dirty or stained easily, etc etc
well i must say that since my first thomson machnie around 20 + years ago to now my 3rd thomson machine, i would say that thier design have improved tremedously in terms of the features and what i like most about the thomson is its slim profile.
well about the arms i think its hard to reason. and for the door latch it just safety, waht is a minute or two for safety to be considered. water spray also doesnt matter much.
oh for the trap. yes you have to open the trap door all tge way to the bottom but its maintenance free u dun need to open it actually. i only so far opened it once in say 3 years. nothing at all so i think he is weird.
actually ive heard a lot about the thomson especially against thomson which i find weird, although i am not that against electrolux but in the top load scene i think with electrolux specialising in front load what does it say about thomson which specialises only in top load... weird huh salesman these days

any 1 had any comments on electrolux washing machine cum dryerEW1290W?
how is it?the hand wash function is good?how about the dryer function?
is effective?any 1 have any idea how much is the model electrolux washing machine cum dryer EW1290W?
thanks thanks :>
hi yoyo can let me know which shop u referring to with regard to the offer for EW880?
hi cool i also am considering EW1290W but after reading what ckclass said (refer to the earlier messages)i agreed that it's quite troublesome to take out half of the washed laundry aside to tumble dry the other half. Time spent is twice that compared to separate washer n dryer....
yes and there is ariston which yuo could consider to be cheap but you can have a look at the materials that they use like the body etc. its much lighter and their reliability is relatively so so.
hence they dun really make a popular choice.
not denying that they are not good but just that with other better options and better educated we all are we tend to go for better ones and evaluate the cost. even its at a premium cost, may not matter that much.+
again just my views
you could also condsider ariston they are made in italy but not indesit.
if really get electrolux then must place it near window?? Just now went down to HN, the sales personnel told us that if we want to get electrolux then need to place it near window as it need to blow out the dirt in our clothes.... So now thinking which one is better option!
The person introduce LG to us... Quite like it and it's a 7kg load for both WM and dryer... But the only downside... it's MIC.... But the only good point is it just like WM... using water pipes to drain out the dirt and other stuff from the dryer...
Plus... Better to check if the portion which lock the WN is made of aluminium... If plastic or acrylic will be easily wear and tear!
Hope this will help those who is interested in getting the WM and dryer.... But not sure which one to choose... Hee..
yeah you can consider condenser dryer. unfortunately very few brands offer them.
and they are relatively expensive
one of them is LG which i prefer not to take and the other is BOSCH. however i think the price for the 6kg condenser dryer is around 1k or so.
electrolux does not carry their condenser dryer in.
i would say its not really a matter of the dirt cos its fine lint and you wont really see it its more of the moist vented air that you should be worried.
as with physics if your ambient air is moist air your rate of evaporation would be slower than a place with a dry ambient.
hence if say your dryer vents warm moist air into the kitchen and you dun vent that aream what will happen is that the kitchen will become warm and moist.
and the dryer will continually take in air from surrounding to vent through the drum hence not only will your kitchen continye to become warm the clothes will take longer to dry which translates to higher operating costs.
so there is a hose provided which you can say place it out the kitchen window. to let the moist air to vent out of the kitchen entirely.
or if you have a service balcony that would be better.
and things to take note for condenser dryer is that their electricity consumption is higher. and bear in mind the operating cost yeah?
so its a balance of either buying for convenience sake with slightly higher running cost or a bit of a trouble to save as much as you can.
