The Hotpoint First Editions were CCC rated. I still have the energy sticker from mine and it's definitely CCC. Uses 85l of water too, unthinkable these days lol. They do a decent job of washing but they're still C rated for wash

I have a Hoover Ecologic A8596 washer/dryer.

Manufactured December 1992
Currys special edition model
1000rpm Spin
Rated for a 5kg load (really only 4-4.5kg)
Was a good few years before energy ratings lol. But at a guess I'd say it would be about CDC.

The Hoovers could of been even worse than a D rating for wash, I remember us having a catalogue which IIRC was a 1993 one.

It had one of the last "grey pannelled' Zanussi Jetsystem 1000's and that scored B energy C wash and C spin - Mums Electrolux I imagine would of done pretty much the same as the Zanni from what I remember of a relatives Zanussi Jetsystem.

Our Lux had good long tumbles with Jetsystem constantly pumping throughout the whole wash and rinse.

I would imagine with Hoovers slow and not so regular tumbles it could of fared even worse.

Miele W3922WPS

Bought this machine a few months ago and its the best machine I have ever used!

19 Programmes (I think)

Not got much else to say about it, anyone has any questions ask away hehe.

Cool machines!I love our Hotties high woolens water level.One question though,Does it do a cooldown on a 95c wash.I never use this programme so i was wondering.I doesnt on 60c.

Keep it up!


Post# 324032 , Reply# 10   1/13/2009 at 15:12 (5,074 days old) by electron800 ()        
hmm I thought C for wash, D energy rating

The wash part of the programme on mine is the same time and water level as our WM52 was. As for slow and irregular tumbling, mine dosent particularly do that. The tumble speed is about the same as most washers and the tumbles are very regular. If anything it washes better than the Hotpoint did, but I'd say it's probably about the same.

If it would be rated C or below, that just confirms for me that these wash ratings are stupid, everything always comes out spotless without fail.

I have just tried to take multiple pics and all with 'not a lot of success'...

So I found the model in the 'discontinued items' section....UK readers will realise that it is a rebadged Zanussi and is the same (I believe) as the first 'John Lewis' badged machines that they bought-in from Zanussi a few years ago...

We also have a Westinghouse 6kg electronic can see it in the brochure that you can down load if you wish....and yes, we have it wall mounted upside down as is the Australian norm.....

Oh, by the way.... sorry for the lack of info I am just about to leave for work. In the first 2 photos... the Kenmore is a 1984 and the Whirlpool is 1989.

The WW FL above is 1994 and the Kenmore FL is 1990.

Miele + AEG

My best machine, the Miele W 8115, next to my worst machine, the old AEG Lavamat Carat 1008!

The old AEG will be taken apart soon, as the motor, timer, heating element and pump aren't working properly. Too bad, because this thing washes splendidly!

Miele W 720

My old Miele...

She still needs a new drum, and for some reason, she doesn't tumble, not even a single bit! I reckon the circuit board or the motor is broken, but my dear friend Mielelover gave me a proper motor and circuit board for it!

I hope to have the Miele running next week!

I don't have one of MY own yet. My apartment/condo has recently gotten renovated and has gotten to the point that now, I plan to make it MY own personal luxury abode. That being said, I don't have a washer or a laundry center of my own yet. But in the meantime, I have access to a:

(01). 2007 Kenmore Elite Oasis Top Loader w/Stainless Steel Tub and a Dual-Action Agitator


(02). 1987 Kenmore Electric Dryer.

I do however, plan to get a washer of my own sometime in the next year or two. And the ones I have my eye on so far are the following:


(01). Maytag MAH2400AWW* -- $750.00
(02). Whirlpool WFC7500VW* -- $750.00
(03). LG WM3431HW* ** -- $1,600.00
(04). Frigidaire GLTF2940F*** -- $800.00****
(05). Sears Kenmore HE2 -- $900.00****
(06). Sears Kenmore HE2t -- $950.00****


(01). GE Spacemaker 1100HWW* -- $800.00
(02). Avanti W797* -- $400.00*****

* = 24" Model
** = Washer/Dryer Combination
*** = 2009 Consumer Reports Best Buy Rated Model
**** = If I am able to accommodate a Full-Sized Washer into my kitchen
***** = Estimated Retail Price

Comments or Questions, Anyone??? :-)

Hi Targus - nice utility room. Is that the A rated tumble dryer?

BTW - on my AEG if you pressed sensitive it would raise rinse levels to either 1/3 or halfway up the door, depending which rinse it was on :-). Does yours not do that?

the sensitive or extra rinse option doesn't raise the water level a lot, you still can't see it on the door glas

AEG Water LEvels

I have an AEG Lavamat Bella. Purchased in 1991, and used very little. Actually only used steadily for one year. Machine was kind of small, so I went back to a Maytag top loader, then an LG front loader. So......the AEG was really only used for sweaters and a occasional regular load or boil wash.

ALl of the rinses fill up to half way up the window.

Back in 1991, paid $1000.00 for this machine, and this was on sale.

I guess I should keep this machine??

I'd be keeping that machine for sure....

You comment that it is 'kinda small', but it should be able to handle a 5kg load which is at LEAST 2x queen sheets, 1x Queen quilt cover and 4x pillow slips.

Hoover Australia marketed the Electra 4kg machine as capable of washing 8x single bed sheets....

One of my newest!

revvinkevin's profile picture
Both the newest because I brought it home 2 days ago and the newest because it's ONLY 2 1/2 years old! The ad read that she paid $650 for it when she bought it BUT I only paid $75!!!!!!!!!!!!! For some reason it was WAY too big of a problem to push "pause" and open the door to add something after the cycle was started. The other "problem" was having to leave the door open when not in use to prevent musty odors. Go figure!!

But, her loss in my gain as I have already ran two loads and it works GREAT!

Eddy, I think the older Miele is from the late 60's or early 70's. The last year these were sold was 1973. You can contact Miele Germany with the serial number, they might be able to give a year.

The Lavamat Bella is a beauty. Does she work with the outer door open?

I own a Zanussi FJS1225W washing machine bought in October 2001

It will be 8 years old in October 2009, pretty chuffed as its still going strong, I know of others who had modern Zanussis and theirs lasted a few months.

Previously to this we owned a Philips Whirlpool washing machine which was a work horse, we had this machine from 1993-2001, it was purchased in March 1993 at radio rentals.

Here is a pic of our Zanussi

I very nearly bought a Zanussi in 2001 from Allders....and then saw the Blomberg Comet/Currys (not sure which)....

My only regret is that we left the Blomberg in the flat when we sold it to move back here....

...but now I am a bit of a Zanussi fan....we have a 6.5kg jetsystem in a rental property and another rebadged Zanussi we use at home (think John Lewis)....

Hi RobM,
what about your Jetsystem rinses ?
Can it have such hi level rinses like the Premier Novo ones when "short" & "water +" are selected ?

thanks in advance

I had a Maytag Neptune set that I bought 2 months ago on Craigslist for $200. The washer was very loud in the spin cycle and the plastic around the edge of the tub was being torn off. It finally went out on me a week ago, and it was replaced with a 1996 top load Whirlpool washer.

As for the Neptune dryer, I couldn't be happier! I just love the sensor dry feature. It's also quiet and dries the clothes pretty quickly. Here's a photo of my Whirlpool washer and Maytag Neptune dryer:

An AEG Lavamat Bella from 1985

Eddy...I hace the same exact machine, but I bought it in 1991. I still have it. I only used it steadily for a year, then my son came along and had to get a bigger machine. Right now it is disconnected and in the garage. I hope to make some room and use again. I did use the machine for about 1 load weekly, like sweaters or a small load. It is a nice machine. Do you like yours?

Hi Ray, yes I love that machine! Mine doesn't have the distribution/ balancing before it goes into spin so it's quite dramatic. It has a cool down plus 4 rinses, all high water up the door glass. Clothes are very well rinsed.
Hope you get to enjoy yours again soon.

Here is mine, a Miele Softronic W 435, 1500 rpm.
It was a bit of a trouble maker when it was new until I realized it was not perfectly level. It was slightly tilted forward which caused the sensors go crazy somtimes.
Now I couldn`t be happier with any other machine.
The only thing I miss sometimes is a greater range of temperatures.

Guys: I am new here, wanted to send you a picture.

Here is our Frigidaire Affinity Set in the new kitchen, and have since tiled the backspash and gotten rid of alot of clutter. It replaced a Frigidaire Gallery Set that died after about 8 years. I liked the old dryer better as it had reverse action tumbling, never thought they would discontinue that feature. Oh well.

I have mentioned before that it is very similar to the first series of machines that John Lewis sold under their own label.

Some of the programmes are slightly different though...I don't have a Soak or Stain cycle, but then they don't have Delicate spin or Easy Iron....

It is 3yrs old this month and has been as reliable as anyone could ask for.

You solved a problem that I had with mine! I wondered why it would go a bit crazy sometimes so i checked how the machine was sitting and it was tilted forward. Now the machine is everything i thought it would be! Never realised how sensitive the machine was!

David, I`m glad I could help. I even had the PC board replaced under warranty but of course it didn`t help. The trouble was that the machine often would not go into full spin speed, or when going into a suds lock not reducing the speed as it should until the suds are cleared.
Of course as it is always the case with sporadic faults it always worked properly whenever a Miele technician had checked it. Think they just declared me nuts because they never could find the problem.

I have mine now slighty tilted backwards and it seems to like it a lot.

I wanna show you one of my collection, I got nearly 30 Washers, I will post a list and some pics of them in the next time for you!

But this washer here is, so I think, the most gay washer in the world ;)

It's originally an Siemens Siwamat 6123, but now called "Princess GTI"! A friend of mine gave it designed in this way to me as a gift!

He painted it, did a mirror on the top and put a lot of flowers on it ;)

I hope you like it! ;)

Frigidaire 2140 and matching gas dryer

In this photo, you can see the water heater (left of washer stack) and a sliver of the gas furnace (right of empty space with table and basket). The laundry area is a recessed alcove along the back wall of the garage (it gets cold here in winter but it doesn't freeze) with, left to right: water heater, dryer, washer, furnace.

House was built in 1988, and per the local building ordinances, a concrete filled pipe (bollard) was placed in the slab, 30" or 75 cm high, to prevent a runaway car from possibly severing three gas lines (water heater, dryer, furnace). In 1988, there were no mass-produced FLs sold in USA (you could go to an import store and buy a 240 V Miele) except maybe if Westinghouse was still in production.

Anyway, the pipe would block the door of any FL, even on a pedestal. You "can" cut the pipe down to the floor, but there is a risk of not passing inspection if/when the house is sold. Concrete slabs here have buried pre-tensioner cables, so drilling into a slab (to replace a bollard) is very risky. My parents have a hollow bollard, so they had it cut down and placed a smaller diameter, removable "sleeve" pipe (can be inserted for an inspection) but my home was built later, when the pipe had to be filled with concrete.

During my TL years, the pipe didn't matter. But when my 1997 GE TL broke twice and could not be repaired, the only way to transition to a FL, be able to open the door, and stay within the building ordinances was to stack the machines. For this reason, taller/deeper machines like Duets were out of the question, as the controls would be 6'8" (2.03 m) off the floor. I am of average height and only a very tall person would enjoy having the dryer that high.

I chose Frigidaire because they offered the highest capacity (3.5 cubic feet which I think equates to 11 kg) in a "standard" size, i.e. 27 x 27 x 36 (70 x 70 x 90 cm, standard size in US). Frigidaire offers a stacking bracket for about $24, and I believe the higher end Affinity models offer the bracket free of charge with the washer.

At the time of the purchase (March 2006) I had not yet discovered this board and was woefully ignorant of features to look for when making a selection. The 2140 gives excellent performance. I really like the Soak cycle. While I have to manually advance to a wash cycle (and add more detergent), it's a feature that some more expensive machines don't even have.

It only has two shortcomings. First, no Auto Temp Control. This limits my ability to do cold water wash in winter, when the cold water pipe delivers icy cold (definitely below 20 C) water. ATC would bleed in some hot water to keep the temp at about 20 C. Consequently during the coldest four or five months of the year, I select warm water instead of the cold cycle I might use in summer when the cold water temp approximates 20 C.

Second shortcoming, more minor, is that there is only one delay wash option, for eight hours. The 2940 has 4-12 hour variable delay. At the time, I thought delay was a gimmick or mainly for those with inside laundry rooms, where noise was a factor (so you could wash at 3 am when everyone was asleep). I don't have a "smart" electric meter that gives discounts when you use off-peak electricity, but there are times when I want to set up a load to wash an hour before I arise, or to coincide when I return from work or errands. With the eight hour option, I can set up a load at say 21:00 to wash at 5:00 but that's it. If I arrive home later, the wash won't be done in time to dry when I wake up.

The 2940 has these options, and will stack with either its own matching dryer or the 1442 dryer I have. The price gap was I think another $100 and in retrospect it was a small price to pay for the extra features. That said, the 2140 does a great job of getting stuff clean and I am happy with the purchase.

I added the white cabinet from Lowes about a year after I bought the washer and dryer. I couldn't make its top flush with the dryer top because of the placement of the water supply faucets. I wanted a folding/basket table to place in what had been the washer space. I had thought about a base cabinet, but I have ducting running along the back wall, and the pipe would require sliding rather than hinged doors. It became too big a deal, so I opted just for a table, since the wall mounted cabinet offered lots of storage space. I could not find a ready-made 27 x 27 inch table of proper height, so I took two folding beechwood tv trays and they filled the space perfectly---and I already owned them, wasn't using them for any other purpose, so it was free.

For those of in Europe, just to the left of the water faucets, and 80% hidden by the dryer, is the only 240V outlet in the house! Normally they are found only in the laundry area and/or in the kitchen. My kitchen was designed for a gas range, so behind the range is a gas pipe and a 120V outlet. The 240V outlet has NEVER been used, because I have owned only gas dryers. Gas dryers of course use electricity, but only 120V here. Because of the shortage of electrical generating capacity in California (hydropower maxed out, nuclear power maxed out, population rising), some cities and towns now require a gas pipe and NO 240V outlet in the laundry area, to force consumers to buy gas dryers.

PS to Laundress: did you notice the green box of 20 Mule Team Borax on the water heater pedestal? ;)

Love the Chrome door AEG88830lover !!

I previously owned a Hotpoint WM31, however it developed several faults which were too expensive to repair, I had no time to repair it, and were not going to pay for a repair - we purchased a Hotpoint HE7L492 from the very latest Hotpoint range (Just with the square door design, as opposed to a round door). Its got all the latest Hotpoint technology, all the updated programmes, and programming, and it dead quiet compared to WM31, a lot more sturdier, doesn't jump around the kitchen, and gives a better result (But does take a while longer).
I notice that the tumbles on the new machine, start with a jump like the old 95 series machines - you can see that here:

Shown is the Whites wash, which as you can see holds temperature at 60C for about 1hr, and does 30 second tumbles.
Overall, very good for 250

before anyone asks, WM31 is now with a collector, who did it up.

I have a Hotpoint WMD960 AAA 1600rpm 8KG
Brought it new over 6 years ago.
Only had one repair & that was a circuit board at the back towards the bottom of the washing machine.
The time was counting down but no action or the washing would stop mid flow & just sit there.
But since the new board I've had no problems at all.
The only thing I really hate is the final spin as sometimes it can take up to 20 minutes to complete due to it trying to balance the load Grrrrrrrrrr.

Those Hotpoint's are NEVER 6 years old!! :O I'm shocked, I didn't realise that model had been around so long.

I don't really think that 1 repair in 6 years is anything to boast about. Those Hotpoint's weren't cheap and for that price range AND a TOL machine, I'd expect far greater reliability.

My brother has the same machine - his is 2 years old and it's now on repair 6. It's had a 2 new interlock's, a PCB replacement, a motor replacement and 2 new seals. Thankfully, these were all done under warranty.
