Indesit question...

... as on Watchdog the Indesit Moon does not do a 90 degree wash and the detergent dispenser lives inside the drum, so it stays all warm and a lovely breeding ground for bacteria! The drum also stays wet because the Moon does not do a seperate spin cycle!

The first 2 questions have been answered and argues EXTENSIVELY to the point of my own boredom on the subject and I daresay others feel the same way. There is no answer to either that seems to not cause wars here,

Im sure a search in the SEARCHALATOR will answer them for you without us repeating for you.

and as for the last question. god knows. Perhaps you could ask Creda/Indesit and report back.

Oh yeah...

... and modern machines do not last long because they are now built to be cheaper and built not to last for more than 3 years. Unless you own a Miele that is :)

Planned obsolence. 


 The companies found they weren't making enough money building something that lasts, they needed consumers to return and purchase more every five to seven years. 


A good example was given the other day on this site regarding GE.   When new homes aren't being built, they need a market for replacements.
