    Its the landlords which is worse - How much more in this house will break? It will cost £93 for the service guy just to come out? Well sod that I'm buying my own washing machine - Another £100 would get me that! :o

    what page you looking at brittish heart foundation :? :?

    they are fully reconditioned items! they are reputable makes of machines ie hotpoint whirrelpool service straight from the manufacture with original parts spares ect so basicly its a brand new machine in a newly painted and up graded body :p

    plus its eco friendly as it doesnt end up in a landfill sight

    so sorry if that didnt help i thought it would have been nice to share what we done to get ours and it saved us loads of money too :)

    cool link weestar, I had never heard of that, its a really good idea. Why is it that it is always so hard to find out about really good schemes like this, its almost as if councils dont want to promote them.

    Can't see that shop will have washing machines.

    PS: It did help Weestar I'm just really pissed off for a number of reasons really ....

    We're trying to move & we are having a BAD month its a nightmare so on our worst financial month this happens. Trying to get my CC sorted as it is - I have LOADS of damp stuff in my bath ready to start smelling. The money on my CC is for when we start private ....

    I'll calm down soon I'm sure :?

    I'm with you with Arghhhhhhhhhhh
    one of my cooker hobs decided to melt yesterday, is gas and melted the metal stand on bit( you know what i mean :lol: )

    I rent my washing machine and dryer as i have no luck with them at all, i know it is costing me more in the long run, but they upgrade them for me every year and even come to house to collect money which is a bonus (not a pound slot thingy)

    So might be worth looking at renting one just til you get sorted

    Well I have every wire left in my bras so its not that lol & I cleaned my filter.

    Nah mind I bought one! I've always had Hotpoint until today & I loved them so thats what I've bought. Most sites said up to 28 days delivery which I can't wait on so eBay bargain it was - Same washing machine only £10 cheaper than I would have paid & waited weeks for.

    Be worth it I guess :D OH said we will go 50/50 on it so thats a bit of pressure off.
