it actually depends on the model tt u looking at....i think for national,there is one selling at 600 plus..u can try to call Sweetson at 65632308/65668150. the things there r cheaper than courts n harvey norman...
anyone has use thomson top load washer be4?heard tt is quite gd..
was actually looking for a 6.5Kg....saw the samsung one n it's abt 380+ but some said that the samasung one wasn't very good...not really sure which brand to get cos Thomson, sanyo etc r all quite expensive leh abt 600+.....also i dunno whether to get topload or frontload...prefer topload though.....but heard it's uses more water n electricity.....sigh...headache !!!!!!!!!
topload uses more electricity meh??? i never heard of that leh. i intend to get topload as i find it more practical. U can open it as and when u like. Imagine if u suddenly forgot to throw a piece of clothes in, at least u can still open up the cover and put it in, unlike a frontload, rite?
I heard samsung products not that good. So i never thought of getting samsung.
Any idea 6.5 kg machine can wash full length day/night curtain?
heard from the pple tt thomson washer is veri gd n durable.
the sales person at one those neighbour shops told mi tt her auntie have used her thomson washer for 15 ys liao,n still working fine.....dunno ist really true or not.
anyway,i hve decided to get a thomson washer,now oni deciding bet the frontload kind or those topload slim kind..
actually think for thomson topload and other frontload washer,the washers r mostly 5 or 6kg one...cos my hubby dun like the idea of pressing a button then the stainless steel will open up be4 u can retrieve the clothes,he find tt it will cut the hands...
dun think will take the thomson topload one.mostly will take either thomson frontload or ariston frontload one.
heard fr fren tt for f&P washer,it dries the clothes quite well,but heard fr the sales person in one of those neighbour shop,it tends to tear clothes easily.but dunno true or not.
now my main concern is which washer will make the clothes drier.
i am worried abt the stainless steel cuttin my fingers 2...
nt veri user frenli hor...
as 4 f&p heard of gd comments from gers in sb forum & also the sales from f&p sayin its durable & wont tear clothing easily which is diff from wat u heard of...
confused nw who is tellin the truth???
my main concern is the washer shdnt tear my clothin durin washin...
the deg of dryness of ur laundry can b set by the rmp speed...
front load is well known to take better care of your clothes than top load leh. Thats what I have been hearing from promoters n other users.
I am using the ariston drummer one with the top opening one. One draw back is the stainless steel thing lor. Cannot use one hand to close it. *sign*
But if you are soaking clothing prior to wash, you can pour them in wihout wetting the floor.

The ariston which I have is using the front load technology but the opening is at the top rather than the conventional front opening.
It is diff from those Jap models one. Just want to b clear about it
Ya, my is the 5kg one. I never try washing quilt before. so far can only dump queen bedsheet, 4 pillow case. Did not squeeze the quilt cover also. Felt than by including the quilt cover, it is too too full.
I have just started using my ariston washer. The one with the cashmere quality. I was just wondering what's the most common cycle you put the wash to. I tried the super fast 30 mins cycle and the clothes don't feel that clean. I will be happy with some advice. Thanks!
I put the 30 minutes cycle (#7 at about 60 degrees) if the clothes are my normal office clothes but if I've got towels etc.. I will put to hot wash (#4 at max). But for normal soiling, I think #6 or #7 is sufficient. Perhaps you could adjust the temperature?
I have only used it 3 times so far. I followed the guidelines given. So I don't think I used 60 degrees for # 7. I think I only used either 40 or 30. Tried # 4 too. What is max temparature? I have also tried #3 at the recommended temperature of 40 degrees. Compared to my old machine, the clothes are not as fragrant for some strange reason.
I find that 40 degrees is insufficient 'cos you need at least 60 degrees to kill germs. I usually set at 60 'cos I don't want my delicates to shrink!
If you turn the knob, I think it goes 30 degrees all the way to 80 degrees than MAX.
What detergent are you using? The best is Persil liquid. I couldn't find Persil the last time so I had to buy Dynamo Low Suds liquid which is definitely inferior to Persil. Makes my skin itch!!!! Also, doesn't smell as nice.
apple, i dun think its the washing machine that's causing your clothes to turn yellow. It's the Dynamo.
Dynamo is very very concentrated, and too much of it will cause your clothes to be "bleached".
Try using low suds soap powder. Very easy, just 1 cupful of powder for a full load. You look for the common brands like Persil, Fab etc. Look out for the sign that says "Front Loading Machines" recommended.
If you're wondering how i know about Dynamo?
Its cause i once handwashed my pristine white top with dynamo, but it ended up being beige after the wash !
I've shortlisted 3 brands of washer and dryer: Thomson, Brandt and Bosch. Any comments on these 3 brands? Any problems anyone of you facing with either of these 3 brands, eg. noisy? It seems like Thomson is quite good, very durable from the above comments. Made me quite tempted to get it, though it will cause a huge hole in my pocket!
normal wash has a few kinds... got easy care, cotton & linens etc. the user manual will say what kind of wash for what type of clothing. usually i use the easy care wash n it takes 78min to wash. cotton & linen wash will take 118min.
i'm using the same model as u (used a few times so far). no wonder i find the cycle so long. i hv been setting it as cotton and linen wash. that was what the demo person showed me so juz followed. will try out the easy care next round.
Wow 2 hours to wash cotten and linen, isn't it a big long? Does bosch washer has any feature that saves electricity or water?
Are other brands of washers the same? I know that front load washers typically takes longer to complete a wash cycle but 2 hour is a bit too long.
I realise that many people are buying f&p products. But not too sure about the washer. This is a US brand right? I thought that for front loader washer, it is better to buy european brands. Any comments on this?
tot 2hrs is the normal time needed for most front load washing machine. infact for those daily wear clothes, using the easy care function is enuff. this reduces washing time to only 78min. yes, bosch washer saves both electricity n water. its one of the least water consumption washer.
f&p is new zealand brand. heard tat it is gd. however the washer are big, at least 7.5kg. they are big in size too.
yup, there is a 30min short wash function. so far have not use tat function yet. heh.. think hubby find 30min too short n dunno is it clean or not. bosch washer uses v little water n we r quite amazed the clothes can be cleaned with such little water!
