If you cant repair now, why dont learn? I've been hanging with some of the local repairguy's in my district since I was 10, and also I've learned very much by my self.

I also fix and sell some machines to get some extra money sometimes, and I started to do that when I was about 12. Got alot of help from my father in the beginning.

Remember very well the 2 first times I replaced drum and bearings on 2 old Zanussi machines. ZF511 and ZF821X.

Now, I've taken the license to work as a technician, and I drive around to peoples and fix their appliances.

But remember: have respect for electricity!:)

why 11kg LG front load

i want an 11 because they are awesome. here in SA its a bit hard to find a decent capacity front loader that can be used for a family of 4 (we have the LG 9kg, 11kg and the Defy 8.5kg. Defy is our loacl brand). and in winter when therer is lots of bedding it would also be nice. our 13kg top load is amazing though. i can get 1 king size extra length duvet cover and sheet, 1 double duvet cover and sheet, a queen sheet, single duvet cover and 10 pillow cases 3 of which are continental. that load takes just over an hour. can also do a load of 10 pairs of jeans

Here in the usa most all LG FL washers are about an 11 Kg in size in the common 27" width. BUT these are 120volt 60HZ machines with two water inputs; one cold; one hot water. The internal electric heater on most is really only for the hot setting on most, on warm the washer blends the two hot and cold water inputs. Machines here for houses are really not spec'd most of the time by weight anymore; ie Kg or Lbs.

usa front loaders

i like the american front loaders but not too fond of the 2 water inlets. but the sizes are amazing. here the LG 11kg is small enough to fit under the average counter (85cm/850mm)

I just love those tiny tumble dryers.
We had them in Brazil 15 to 10 years ago and I was dumb enough to ignore them.

Now they are available in Paraguay and I'm trying to keep me far from the store that sells it, but after seeing this thread it's going to be very difficult to resist.
Best of all, those are veeeeeeeeeeery cheap.

My Mum had a Zanussi Badged one from the 90's. Stupidly we chucked it away when the thermostat cut out and didn't realise it could be reset!
