when I bought my ariston, they told me washer is like car must service every 6 months, now after 4 years started to have sounds, finally ask them to come and take a look later [sweatdrop][sweatdrop]

Now so cheap and so many fairs. No point repairing. The parts and labour cost can buy new one.

Post warranty just get a new one lar unless got some sentimental value tied to it.

 

new ones usually better power savings, more fanciful wash cycles, etc.

Your washing machine already 5 years? No point repair since washing machine nowadays price so cheap. Unless your washing machine comes with those extended warranty.

me like front load and did call MS Goh on a new one. Less than 700 for 8kg.

 

front load bosch or LG lor.

both 2 yr warranty

LG thailand, bosch also thailand.

 

LG cheaper obviously.

 

I bought a bosch and paid for extended warranty. only household item which i buy such warranties.

some brands now offer extended warranty inhouse (at least hitachi do for their fridges). Do check if you desired brand does, then can have best of both worlds. Price from neighbourhood shops, and extended warranty from manufacturer.

It make more sense to buy a new one.

Mine was replaced last yeat after comparing the quote to repair the old one. Normally Visit + parts will caused at least $200.

So buying new one is better.

My new samsung Front Load, come with 7kg washing capacity, 5kg dryer capacity. And can also used as a dry cleaner. Motor come with 10yrs warranty, cost me $700++

Yea, its better to just buy a new one. Even the repairman told me that. + parts for old machines will be on indent basis, so will take some time.

got a new LG, bugger is quiet like s--t... no sound one, only got sound of water sloshing around.


my old one was abut 5 yrs+ too.
