i dun like samsung washing machine ler!! the cycle hor..i think too strong (not gentle enough)... your baju will be easily worn off. I put aside my new samsung and bot a panasonic due to this reason.

but if it is use to wash, blanket/curtain.. then it is very very good..

I went to Eng Hin (the electrical shop by federal highway near Motorola) wanting to get a Electrolux washing machine, but the sales lady there recommended a LG front loader going for RM1299 She claims its fully imported from Korea compared to Electrolux which is made in Thailand.... Also, electrolux is more expensive going for RM 2K +

any comments whether LG is a good brand? my mum swears by electrolux.

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?

if u have curtain, blanket, comforter to wash, get one with 7.5kg load and above. it helps u to save on laundrette..... :)

yes, the LG frontload w/m... i saw in Sg's Best Denki and was like on offer for SGD599 if i recall correctly! my colig use frontload electrolux or another european brand and says beta get dis type, saves water n clothes wun anyhow get twisted during spin cycle, then less trouble when ironing...

but last nite discuss wif FH he said need to stick to budget, get a so maybe we will get the LG Fuzzy one... since stpeiyee wash for 3 years still tahan lasak, then shd b good enuf for me! :) ya, i oso wan to save on laundrette when washing quilt, bedsheet covers, curtains... but hor, will it oso save water??! :rolleyes:

anw, 2nite is the nite.... got to decide! ;)

I am using Electrolux frontloading 5kg w/m. :) Bought it for RM1500 last year. Agree with kittybride, the clothes do not get twisted or rubbed badly. It has temperature control too. The con is frontloading w/m usually supports limited kgs... and thus need to do laundry twice a week.

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

There is this new model from panasonic, with dryer below RM4K below. And LG too, it is below RM3k.

Never use LG before... so Dunno bot the quality.

ViV,

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.

heheheheh :P Thanks Ariel. Electrolux... ok...

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?

ViV,

* 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.

Hi,

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, :rolleyes:

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 :rolleyes:

hi ladies,

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... :lol:

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...
