We have a Hoover. It is an imp of Satan, and once we've moved out of this house (reasonably soon), you'd have to pay me to attempt to coax one into working reliably. Lurking to see recommendations.

I know you said you haven't got space for two machines but I don't know anyone with a washer/dryer who doesn't hate it.

1 year? You would expect a machine to last longer than that. Have you considered your rights under the Sale of Goods Act?

I have this hoover one. I've had it about 4 weeks and I like it so far! The only problems I had was with Currys and their awful customer service!

We have a Samsung and we have an amiable relationship with it. Does what we need it to do and hasn't let us down yet. Only downside was the size. It is deeper than our old machine so it sticks out a bit further.

I had a hoover (just) washer. It had to go back within 3 months as there were so many issues with it. I now have an AEG .

I suggest that you look at all the worst reviews first to see what the real issues with any model that you look at. I didn't go with a popular bosh washer because although it was meant to do a 1600 spin, it didn't actually get that fast.

For great customer service try Quick, free delivery too.

We had a zanussi which was fabulous and lasted years. We replaced it with a hot point which was utterly pants and replaced 3 times and every one leaked badly.

I would look for a basic model, around £200.

Less to go wrong, likely to last a good while.

Washer dryers are awful. I've happily just got rid of ours. I would go for a decent washing machine and a Dry Soon heated clothes airer instead...

I have a 15 year old AEG w/dryer which is still going strong (caveat: I don't use the dryer much, apart from finishing off towels to keep them fluffy). I will be having a new kitchen fitted later this year, and will buy another AEG to replace it. They are usually around £500-ish.

We have had a zanussi for a couple of years. It was recommended by the lovely people in our local independent store and we have had no problems. Don't ever use wash then dry cycle-fairly inefficient but works well separately (and is faster that way).

We have an LG Turbodrive washer dryer and I have no issues with it. We only dry the occasional load though, ie in the odd occasion that we do more than one wash a day and there's no drying space. Wash-dry cycles take so long you'd never get 3 loads a day done with it.

Get yourself a £400 machine and a heated drying rack from Lakeland (about £100). Dries a load of washing (and some) nicely overnight.

We had a hot point until recently and it was shite. Absolute total and utter shite. It leaked, squeaked and the circuit board blew up twice.

When it packed up the last time we went for a Samsung and, I have to confess, I'm a convert. It's chuffing good, and that's despite doing masses of new baby washing.

The one we got is a bit more expensive but I'd highly recommend
