How Reliable Is A Washing Machine. by ndidibabe(f): 4:56pm On Mar 22, 2013
I am considering purchasing a washing machine but will like to know if a washing machine really worth its hype?

Does it wash well and is it user friendly?

Over the years, i have been doing my laundering myself but i am struggling to manage my time these days.

Please, users of washing machine, share your experience with me.

Which is better, Manual or Automatic? Do i require any plumbing work?
Re: How Reliable Is A Washing Machine. by biolabee(m): 6:30pm On Mar 22, 2013
Automatic is good
You can connect it to the plumbing in the kitchen area

You need to consider if you have space.....

Its really worth it, it saves time, money and energy, washes well of course, with right timing.

May God help us all.

Makes washing sooooooo easy jare. I don't know what I'll do without my washing machine. *covers face*
Also have Qlink manual n digital LG but the Qlink can work even with small gen unlike the LG digital which uses a lot of power but does more work sha.
And Qlink is kinda very affordable.
The LG digital is in a class of its own, just throw in ur cloths and set the time, washes and spins.

Common to you. Not everybody has used a washing machine before and it doesn't mean they can't afford it.

I believe the auto is better. Am using manual though- it washes clean, rinses and spins. In the absence of running water you can simply pour water and do your laundry. Buy a washing machine, today. grin

Pls is it advisable to use d washing machine on ankara and lace material? Also is detergents like ariel good without fading out d colours.
Re: How Reliable Is A Washing Machine. by Nikkygold4life(f): 9:31am On Mar 28, 2013
It's very cool to have a washing machine, it saves a lot of time and energy, u can b washing and cooking at d same time. Although mine is manual, it serves well, washes clean when u follow d regulations properly, u might not need to wash a second time. Any working wife should have it instead of paying pple to wash for u at wkends.

Yes, u can wash ankara with washing machine, most of my lace don't have hole so I also wash with it, I've not tried d ones with holes in it. Its not advisable to use ariel on quality cloths except for whites,towels, curtains, bedsheets, play cloths and children play cloths, use liquid detergents

What model are you talking about?

Between frontloader and toploader, which do you recommend for the average private user?
Re: How Reliable Is A Washing Machine. by Onegai(f): 10:15pm On Aug 26, 2015
My family used them growing up and it made sense.

We're buying one this weekend. I'm used to washing machines but this is our first personal one and we are short on space. I'm looking for a High efficiency washer (hubby wants a dryer inbuilt as well) automatic. Please any recommendations?

Also, does anyone know where they sell Tide liquid detergent in Lagos? Thanks.

That is good...

But I am thinking and would love to know a few more things.

How much water is needed in a washing?

Does a washing machine damage clothes?

It will only damage cloth if u mix different shades/colour of clothes together. And there are choices for soft and hard washing. Just select according to the cloth material.
Bought mine last December and I've had no regrets. Though manual could be stressful but the advantage is that I can continue if light goes off wink

As I live in a place where water is not so abundant, how about water requirements? Does a washing machine consume more water than hand washing? How much water is required for a given level of washing?
