Hi Guys,

As some of you fellow Persilheads know, my parents won't let me start a collection. The thought of where to put the collection jumped (not literally) on me. Get a mini washer. Now on first thought, it would have to be a front loader, not a camping mini one you can buy at Argos or a camping store, so they were crossed off my list. There is enough room for a 3kg machine, but I have a choice. I can either choose from, a Candy Aquamatic, or a Zanussi Studio machine. I am going to buy second hand, and I have a budget of 60. Also if there are any other compact front loaders let me know. Also could you recommend what would suit me best. The machine in question needs to have a quick wash.

Thank You

Jacob, when i was buying my aquamatic i looked at zanussi too, i read a very dissapointing review that said and i quote "if water pressure is high-normal it will shoot water out of its soap dispenser"
you are better off looking at a candy aquamatic.
Tom :)
BTW do your mam and dad know about the compact washer idea?

Thats only 3kg like my aqua 3 but the thing was the aqua3 when it came out, 3kg was normal so that was impressive!

RE the optima...

Still no replies and I am NOT going to chase him up. How much was it new? Please dont ask about it as I will do my best to inform you.

I will make a thread now but if anyone asks outside the thread then I will reply in that thread as odd posts in a thread do not work.

Make a new thread?????

I daresay seeing as its just the 4 of you interested in your latest "will i wont i" dilemma id just stick to FB eachother or MSN'ing eachother rather than waste threads here.

Getting tired of this lads, I have the guts to speak up and say, meanwhile everyone else is getting fed up of these antics.

Adult and mature conversations welcomed,

Rubbish about over flowing and sudslocks, imaginationery adds to collections, childish conversations about your school day and using swear words to make you think your looking cool are really not what I imagine this site is about.

Have a think eh lads because right now a few of dont really want to post here due to this.

Jacob, nobody would want that. Rob very rightly pointed out that a lot of threads are being posted by a select few individuals which are rather pointless and don't really add anything new or interesting to the site. Posts asking for advice are fine, as are posts sharing experiences, but a lot of these really have no point of interest and are just general chit-chat. This is why the great technology gods gave us MSN, Facebook and mobile phones :).

It always a pleasure to see more people joining the forums, but please lets keep it relevant and not overloading the boards with general banter

it's impossible not to visit them, they're are so many! If people didn't visit these threads with the occasional post inbetween, this whole board would consist of about 3 - 5 people posting the same things over and over. And then it wouldn't be a forum, would it?

Get over it. Life aint easy...

All were asking you to do is stop treating the website as some sort of social network or instant messaging site and your taking offence from that!

What do you want us to do when your clogging up the forums?!!?

It IS fun here.
I have met a lot of fantastic people and gained a lot of knowledge from others. You can have a blast on here but there is no need for so much posting, creating more than 1 thread about the same topic or irrelevant posts. Also, there is no need to post messages saying "hello?" or "is anybody there?" if nobody replies. Generally, if nobody replies, it means that nobody has the answer to your question or anything interesting to contribute to your thread
