yeah, anyone got any idea where can get a dryer. i'm sourcing out on one too...i know SG got a lot.
Ariel... wah.... you very rich right? put aside the new samsung and bought another one???? I can't do that. ANyway, those more expensive clothes never put in the washing machine though, hand washed. But I do need a dryer, anyone bought a dryer and has any recommendation for the brand? Oh, not too pricy one lar ok?
i remember i went once to condo sample house in Damansara ...by the name of something... Platinum. it has one dark grey colour very nice one but can't remember the brand name already. :(

My mom has been using the same w/m and it's still in good condition after > 10 years.

Never use LG before... so Dunno bot the quality.
I like electrolux. The dryer at bout RM1.5K. The dryer is good... after drying, no need to iron our cloth.., the clothing is soft too... so save lots of ironing time!!
No... not rich...!!! but cannot tahan already. Coz, am too lazy to hand wash.

I am drooling over the panasonic w/m cum dryer but not below 4k leh... about RM5k lar! Cannot afford. :( too much to ask for a washing machine. So decided to get a separate unit of dryer but my small back yard of my tiny condo will be very cramp with machines!
Ariel, can this electrolux dryer be fixed on the wall and does it need ducting?

* Front Loading
* Fully Automatic
* 8.0kg Capacity
* Built-in Dryer (4.5kg capacity)
* DD Inverted Motor
* Spiral Concept
* Soft Tumble Wash
* Tub Dry (Drying Function)
* 30° Tilted-Drum
* Universal Design
RM3999.00 from the web page. but RM4988 at electrical shop. so must double check ler!!
The electrolux hor, just put on the floor will do. no ducting required. Mine is a damn old electrolux, so dunno about the new dryer.

I am using Toshiba AirJet dry washing machine, a totally new machine to me so still cant comment more. But i am pretty satisfy with the AirJet mode of drying as I found out the clothes are quite "dry" after AirJet mode. Then after hanging (sunny day) for an hr already very dry liao,
But as for my previous and current experience also, both my landlords also using LG fussy logic and it's quite tahan lasak i think. A very famous brand of washing machine at SG.
A quite important pt to figure out when u plan to buy a WM is the spare parts, this is what i heard

i got hitachi 8kg w/m liao, wif airdry something... actually not my choice but FH got so convinced by the SA (she not even pretty so i believe he genuine believe her words! :P)
anw, no point argue wif FH coz finally he said if i not convinced, he will buy instead of we share share from our joint acct... so settle lah. :)
next week they will deliver the w/m n i will try out the airdry thingy n c if really can dry up faster! oh ya, total including the warranty & delivery costs my FH over S$660! expensive hor...

5kg is enough for 2 person family....
i wash 2 times a week... on the same day...
is that a need 7kg or 10kg washing machine?
a electric shopkeeper kidding to me said 10kg washing machine can open laundry shop liao...
seperate dryer n washing machine is better...
