Is your washing machine with magic hand function? Wherever I go (Best, Safe, Court), all saleperson like to recomend Samsung or LG, seems like very popular........
May I know where did you bought it?
just want to highlight. I used to think front load is gd cos of the way it washes the clothes. no doubt it is but after using it, i find it cumbersome cos you have to bend down and get the clothes out, quite inconvenient.
This is the only - pt is has.
yup u r rite, dat's wat i know too. dat's y my family got front load. actually i'm just highlighting that it is cumbersome cos must take out from the front so need to bend down.
oh i was considering that too. those r quite pricey rite. it's top load but works like the front load kind correct ? however, i drawback is it only comes in 5kg the biggest is 6kg and it's ex. I wanted to get that till i came across F&P washing m/c (it's e normal top load kind) but seems like the function is pretty good and the sales person say it wouldn't spin ur clothes out of shape. However, it's not so cheap too but at least it's is 7 kg so slightly more worth it.
I have not bought my washing m/c but i'm quite set on the F&P one cos it's sounds gd. U can check it out.
I agree with Howesy. I've made a lot of queries with the ladies at work. All of them recommended top load and most of them have bad experiences using front-load. Main reasons given was most of their clothes get torn when they use front load and the time taken to wash a small load of clothes (abt 60-90 mins). Also, one of them told me that once she added too much detergent by mistake and had to spend another 90mins rewashing everything again. That's like 3 hrs for 5 kg worth? One lady was quite adamant that a front load was better. Her rational was that it looks nicer. Guess it's a valid reason...in some ways.
Hi, but my friend told me that Samsung is not so durable in terms of washing machine and refrigerator. No offence, just want to confirm with all the experts here. They say that is why Samsung is always one of the brands that goes on sale. Is that true?
Hi Hi, sorry, I didn't know there were questions for me. Jaz, I bought mine at Lee Meng Tel:2931086. They are cheaper than Courts for several tens of dollars for most appliances. Give them the model no.
So far, I have used the machine, it is alright. This 6.5kg Samsung Fuzzy Logic (whatever it means) sings songs when the washing is done. kekekkeke...I didnt know at first, gave me a fright at first. Quite quiet. Even gives you the time it takes to finish washing the load.
I dun know Samsung if they are always on sales, but Korea brands always 'spoil' the market by giving you the most features at the lowest prices. so far, my friend's Samsung fridge is good too. So ok lor.....
I'm surprised so many pp dun like front-loading washing machines! I've been using mine (Brandt) for the past year and haven't had it tear any of my clothes, even when I dump in the delicate/thin fabrics (too lazy to handwash
Personally I like my front-loading washing machine coz I can put things on it, unlike a top-loader. (I have a very small kitchen so every little bit of space counts!!)
I have advice that stainless steel is better so my hubby bought a Sharp top-load one. But like what howesy said steel drum torn my clothes too. Eek Now i wash most of my clothes by hand and worst i have to wash our clothes (only 2 of us) twice a week becoz the machine is too small. So think of the load if you are getting a small washer esp. when you have beddings and quilt covers etc.
I have a Fisher/Paykel top-loading Smartdrive 9kg (I think!) washing machine. It's quiet, fast, reliable and does not tear clothes nor wring them out of shape. Apparently F/P's technology and placement of the detergent holder (in the centre of the drum) as well as the way the drum spins during washing reduces wear and tear on the clothes and the machine as a whole. It also saves electricity and has options for water-saving.
My machine cost about $1,000 and is worth every penny!
Mine is a F/P 7 Kg one. It is just nice for us who do the laundry once a week, so we do once at full load. I find that this saves time and work, as compared to buying 5kg one, that need to do twice a week. F/P is a steel drum kind, but as winik said, it does not tear your clothes. It is ok to wash delicates in them. I recommend the f/p washer.
Coupled with a dryer. My clothes are ready to wear the next morning. I find that very convenient. Very good for lazy people like my hubby and me.
When talking about top loading washer, I hope you people understand that there are some kinds with a 'stick' in the middle, and some are just round tub. I believe those round tub without 'stick' won't damage clothes.
Can I also check how do you wash King Size bedsheets? Throw both comforter sheet and bedsheet, with pillow cases into washer together? I have one dark coloured one, will the colour fade in time to come? How should I take care of bedsheet? I ask this because i have heard people who send bedsheets to laundry! Do you send to laundry too?
9kg is just nice for us. We seem to go through a lot of clothes! I usually do about 2-3 loads a week.
My washing machine has the "stick" you were mentioning, and so far our clothes have never been damaged. In fact, the previous washing machine I used was a National top loader without a "stick" and my clothes always went out of shape. It's more to do with the way the drum spins than the presence of the "stick."
As for washing bedsheets, I usually dump them all into my machine, and toss them into the dryer after that. However, it's always best to follow the washing instructions as the cleaning needs of each set may differ.

yeap me taking the MTM but have not really decided on the design yet... my new hse in segar rd
i bought whirlpool 287. not sure if that's necessarily the best. one man's meat is another's poison, so find one that suits ur needs.
my selection criteria was rotating drum mechanism (i believe it's washes better with less water), variable speeds (to wash dirtier clothes) n one with a gentle/delicate cycle. when i was studying, the laundry shops near my apt used whirlpool, n i thot it wasn't too bad.
oh yes, if u intend to buy a dryer, remember to budget a space to put the dryer.
