Why can't u ask 2 questions in 1 thread??

The better washing machine is LG with the direct drive mechanism.

For durability, Whirlpool & Zanussi.

This is to allow forumer to zoom in to specific appliances...
imagine a thread contains 10+ appliances, it would take a hell of his/her time to read everything, when he/she only wants to know one appliances only.... save forumer time to read thread

Front loaders save water, you don't need to fill the tub to wash. I think it saves electricity too.

Well if it lowers your water bill, it's cheaper smile.gif it might save electricity as well, I think they should require less power to operate since gravity might do half the work already. I'm no engineer, but I suppose if you build some sort of motor to just pull it half way up, inertia and gravity would do the rest of the work.

@wodenus,
Just cause it's cost-saving and efficient, it doesn't mean it's performance is better than that of the front loaders; that's what I mean tongue.gif

Erm not sure, I have had both front and top loaders and honestly prefer front loaders. Seems to last longer and as mentioned above saves water and electricity, although I cannot ascertain by how much... Depends on usage. *shrugs*

Make sure crap doesn't clog up the machine and have someone look at it for maintanence every couple of years and I reckon a washing machine can last for a decade or two biggrin.gif If so susah, wash by hand tongue.gif Then no electricity costs at all. If electricity tariffs rise sum more may have to consider that... sleep.gif;

Front loaders are supposedly to be gentler on clothes (hence clothes last longer)... which is a good thing unless one needs an excuse to buy more clothes. tongue.gif

Depending on whether u want a top-loading or front-loading.
Elba's front loading is quite ok. <- most sales person wouldn't recommend it coz it gives bad commission.
National's top loading is the best <- most sales person would recomment it but later push u to other brand. coz it also gives bad commission.

my ex-housemate used to work in the electronic shop.

How about dryer and washer combine? Appreciate if anyone using this type of washing machine can comment and share your experience. smile.gif

I'm considering whether to get a Dryer/washer combo or a dedicated dryer since I already have a samsung washing machine...

My concern:
1. What kind of clothes can be mixed?
2. How long does it take to do both washing and drying?
3. Does it use a lot electricity?
