I do not know what price range you are looking at but I would wait until the January sales and you might get a bargain. I bought a Bosch about 9 years ago in the sales (reduced by £100) and it still works perfectly well. I mentioned this on another thread but if you have your heart set on a certain brand then go for it.

I cannot wait.....Have been without washing machine,freezer and tumble dryer for a month now since we were flooded.The money from the Insurance should be here this week and the first thing I must have is the washing machine !!!!.I don't have my heart set.My mind is just boggled with all the technology info that I was given when looking :-S :-S
I hadn't even heard of LG lol.They certainly aren't cheap.The model I was looking at is £500.
I might hang on for the tumble dryer and freezer though for the sales.I have borrowed a small freezer from my neighbour and have been using a collection and delivery service for my washing which is blooming great ( I could get used to that) lol

Yes I have an LG,they are good because they don't have a drive belt. We have been really pleased with ours. My daughter bought a different LG model when she needed to replace hers ad she is pleased with it as well.

I think the man said the drum works on a magnet !! not a belt......I 'm afraid all the techno stuff just goes over my head.(shame on me really) :-S

i would go for an "A" rated one. but not one that has 12 different cycles. you will find that you only probably use 2 or 3 of them. i would not pay £500 for a washing machine, £300 would be the most i would pay.would also wait for the sales, you may get a bargain.
