Hi Darren that looks fantastic. And with an induction motor would be a nice contrast with your other machines, even if you didn't keep it forever.

I would REALLY like this machine! 2hrs 44 mins according to AA Autoroute. I remember it being just over that last time i went. It'd certainly be worth it though!

Darren... that machine looks fantastic! I think that'll have to be a roadtrip for us sometime soon :-).

I love the display - looks similar to the display that were on the Bosch WFX series of machines!

I'm glad u nominated urself b4 i did. lol. That could be a fun roadtrip somewhere down the pun intended. lol. From what i can c on the pic the first button next to the drawer is the main power button, then there is a button on its own which i think is half load, then the buttons under the display are: prewash. the 2nd is the main prog selecter....and the 3rd is spin i think.. then you have the start button which is red.

looks fun:D

Hi Darren, I think this may be the instructions

Go get it!!!

That machine is amazing! Well, i like old Zanussi ones anyways but i'd be interested to see if the washing and spin profiles are different on this because its electronic.

Good luck!

And after having a quick read of that manual, that machine is pretty impressive! Shame my mum wouldn't have it.

Plenty of cycles, and it clearly states the water levels it uses in each part of the programme!

Someone here needs to snap it up and give it the TLC it deserves!

Dan- im seriously considering it. it looks a really interesting machine! I have fond memorys of my mums close friends FL881. But like Dubstar85 said it would be interesting to see if its any different with it being electronic!

Wow, dont see many of these around, and 1100spin as well, nice looking stylish machine and pretty quiet as well...

I think theres a dryer to match on ebay as well,will look nice in your garage Darren, BUT, not at the expense of the Quartz...LOL

Happy bidding, Mike

Okay...deep breaths...Some Lucky F,.........fine person got themselves this rareity for 50p!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm not sure what that is in dollars or any other currenncy but THATS STUPIDLY CHEAP!, okay so if i "did" win would've cost me about 40 in fuel......for a 0.50p machine lol shouldn't this be the other way around lol!

unfortunately for me this wasnt an option, as im spendin along time thinkin about my own collection and what to do with my machines that are out of commision...and i lost my job so money is a huge problem unfortunately....

Oh the sayin goes.."You win some, You lose some"
