Beko dryer works well until the rubber band snaps. To change the rubber band is not an easy task. The opening to the rubber band is too small for an adult hand to reach it. Furthermore, the four sides of that opening area to that rubber band site is sharp due to poor workmanship. They did not polish or smoothen the sharp edges. If you are not careful, you will cut yourself when changing the rubber band. And also the rubber band is not available here... or at least it is not easily available. So one has to order online from UK, which again costs a lot. Each time changing of the rubber band with workmanship cost me RM250. And so far, after getting the unit for less than 4 months, it has snapped twice. There goes my RM500. And because this is not a forum to bombard the poor after sales service of that B*st D**ki outlet which promised everything under the sun when I bought the unit, I would spare them this round, and just stick to the discussion.

It's the hassle of getting the warranty from that outlet. First, calling them thru the number already took long time. Then, rude attitude from the person in charged (reason given: he worked alone and very busy, more like venting his frustration on me). He told me he needed to send my case up to the team, will take 2 working days. Then the team will come only office hours to inspect my unit. Another appointment needed. If off hours, need to pay them extra, despite saying "under warranty period". Next if the unit is taken back, will need 5 working days. That means i wont have my machine for at least 7-8 days (plus the weekends).

At the end, I called my regular electrical shop owner who repairs electrical appliances. And he bought the rubber band from UK, FedEx it here took only 3 days, and came right to my doorstep and got it fixed in 1 hour. Paid RM250. And the whole unit back in perfect working condition.

But few weeks later, the whole thing snap again, and i repeated the repair proceudre... and spent another RM250 to get anohter rubber band changed.

That's why when the unit is working, it's perfect, just like any other brand. The only problem starts iswhen theunit breaks down.

This is already a crap machine with a crap service. It is not working perfect at all with anytime breakdown the rubber band.

With such a short live part, it will happen again and again till you kick the machine out. Without border to repair anymore.

Been using Fisher&Packal for almost 8 years and it has not given us any problem. Very heavy usage (family of 8 now). Too lazy and have not done any service yet too. But lately, the machine can no longer take bigger load, one technician (who came over to fix my washer) said it's due to the rubber band, and it would cost rm400. I have not done anything with it, as it's still working well....just need to load more frequently.

Tried to search online but all the user reviews seem outdated from 2011 and 2012. And the reviews are not good. I'm moving into a new condo soon and is looking for a washer dryer combo.

Is it really bad? Do you get breakdowns every other year?

I'm looking for a small load version ~8/5kg, either Electrolux, Samsung, or LG. Budget is around 2.7k.

If space permitted, better buy a separate washer and Dryer. Combi machine always have problem.

Bought ELBA ED602W 6kg dryer from forumer billykl for rm1150. quite a good deal i suppose because this is the cheapest price i could get after asking few other electrical shop. I choose this model because it doesn't need ducting. Been using it for a few times already and i can say i'm satisfied. The cloth is dry thoroughly and it is quiet as well. Now i don't have to worry about rainy days.

There are so many models in Harvey Norman with Washer Dryer combo.

Usually Washer Dryer Combo is front loading type. So you need front loading detergent only (low sud). The shop will not teach you all these. Thats why people claim combo got problem coz u put normal detergent, the machine sure kaput.

Anyways any washing machine regardless combo or not will kaput and not forever.

My Ariston combo, the dryer kaput first, now still using but the washer only (after 12 years - coz i only do laundry on weekend)
