I love Indesit washing machines. Don't ask my why, I just do. AFAIK they are the only make of washing machine that really really spin.
We have a clothes dryer hanging from the ceiling in the kitchen for drying washing in the winter months so it is a necessity that the clothes come out of the machine not dripping water all over the place. We do have a dryer, but that is used for emergencies only - the electricity bills are high enough as it is without using that!
So imagine my dismay when the old and trusted Indesit that has moved from England to France and has washed and spun our clothes, quilts, Alex's soft toys, trainers and sand shoes for the last goodness only knows how many years decided to spring a leak and chuck the water all over the floor! DH tried to repair it, but I think the poor old thing (the washing machine!) decided it has had enough.
The washing has been piling up and Alex has been complaining about the lack of clean clothes (she has to have clean clothes every day, even jeans!).
So, yesterday DH gave in to the fact that he won't be able to repair it and we came home with this!
Look - no silly draw to collect gunge from the powder and fabric conditioner and get clogged up. The dispensers are inside the door and are self-cleaning.
More in a bit - got some photographs for you.
