I have a silver bosch, not a washer/dryer though. It's really good have had no problems at all. Sorry not much help why don't you google it?

will that give me more info on them?? thanks for replying

um, it might come up with things about that particular model or something like 'this machine has s dogey door as eg. Which one do you prefer??

the LG one is £600 in currys and £379 in
Co-op - and i love a bargain - also got a bigger drum 7kg.

but have heard good things about bosch.

will try on google and see if it shows anything up.

also dont know whether to take out the extra cover thingy they offer - it says extra 5 years but if it already had 2 years manufacturer cover - is it only 3 years really you get?

i got mine from currys. and took a policy out so if they can't fix it in two day I get a new machine. If the lg one has a bigger drum that sounds good. good luck with which one you decide on.

I have a bosch it doesnt have a quick wash and takes ages to do a cycle

mysonsmummy Sun 25-Feb-07 13:17:40

ohh.. im always doing quick washes - something to look at.

we've got an LG on order, what sodlit for us was the drum directly driven not being belt driven so the machine is much quieter. oh yes and it was on a super deal in the Jan sales! so nearly £200 for the same spec machine as the bosch.

to be honest I hope I dont upset anyone who likes them but my bosch is crap all round it takes nearly 2 hours for a cycle the on/ off button has already broke off and its noisy and it wasnt cheap

mysonsmummy Sun 25-Feb-07 13:31:50

has anyone got an LG already - are they quite new? i remember my neighbour saying i couldnt have any LG fridge in my kitchen!!!!!

mysonsmummy Sun 25-Feb-07 13:33:07

katz - can i ask is it the LGW WDI 2331 Ad - stupid question really as this is a washer/dryer - did you read good reports on them

I've got an LG washing machine and also an LG tumbledryer.

Have had the washing machine for about 3 years and the tubmle dryer a bit less.

Like them both. Easy to use, no problems and large load capacity. Manuals available on-line.

its only a wasing macine and its the wm12336fd 1200. had gone to buy a bosch but the sales guy said that LG were as good but cheaper and also had this direct drive feature. Didn't doany research but the Lg model we went for only cost £295

mysonsmummy Sun 25-Feb-07 13:42:27

thanks the LG also has the cycle thing where the water comes in 3 different part of the drum - better for clothes apparently called 3d cycle. my minds made up at last - well until i go to order it!! thanks everyone.

A good website for advice on washing machines is here . It's written by an independent washing machine engineer. I looked at it recently when we bought an LG washer dryer. I think he rates both LG and Bosch fairly highly.
