This is just off the M1 by Leicester.....looks interesting for 50.

I would love it but don't have a large enough vehicle to collect.

That looks like a nice machine!  I recently used an American Whirlpool laundry center outside the USA running on a 50-Hz supply.  It still worked well but the induction motors were running at 5/6th the originally intended speed.  So agitation, spin, dryer tumbling and blower were all running slowly.  Even the timer motor was running at 5/6th its intended speed.  So a 10-min wash actually ran for 12 minutes!  Shouldn't be a major problem though, although drying will take longer both because of the slower spin and reduced dryer airflow and tumble speed.  Nice machine!  I'd have it if I were closer to Leicester and had the space!  I hope whoever buys it enjoys it :-)

Good Price But...

Of all the interesting washers and dryers we have in the US this is not one I would brother with, I work on several of these every week and performance is rather average at best.
