Speed Queen, matching washer and gas dryer, around 50 k each, I think

Maytag - Matching washer and gas dryer, I think, in the 40's?

Whirlpool - Matching washer and electric dryer. The dryer is only 32 k.

There was also a Whirlpool industrial looking washer like you would have at a laundry. 48 k I think.
If SnR is you only option then ok but you have to watch their prices. When we bought our Samsung it was on a special, checking online it was a few pesos cheaper in Manila. When we went back the special had finished, that's when we realised it had been on a special. Got the Samsung a couple of thousand cheaper from SM.

Yes, agree on S&R, but if you can't find it elsewhere, then....

However, the Whirlpool Electric Dryer for 32-33 k at S&R is a good deal. I shopped extensively for those and if you can find it, they are usually 34-36 k elsewhere.

SM, IMHO, has high regular prices most of the time. You have to find a good sale.

If you are in or near Manils Ansons take some beating, only deliver in Manila or you collect.

We bought a top load LG automatic washer last year. It has inverter technology, and we have been happy with it. 8kg capacity, load, add soap, push a few buttons, and walk away.

The typical washers are way too much trouble.

I bought a bucket for 149 p. So far no electrical issues with it except that I cannot use it during a power failure due to the building water pump not working.

It does triple duty, I can use it when I wash the floors or I can keep it full in case of need to flush during a power failure.

We had a bucket in the old house, not allowed in the new house, I'm trying to civilize the mother-in-law. We have a 350 lts tank in the roof which will last a couple of day and gravity feeds through the pressure pump.

Welcome to the forum Moonunit, I agree with you we had a Kelvinator automatic washer for several years but it kept breaking down, it was the circuit board and after two times at 5,000 pesos cost for each visit we went back to the manual washer and dry spin unit it cost us 6,000 pesos... what a mistake is all I have to say and its sort as bad, actually worse than having a TV with no remote control, so much work and damages to clothing, you have to lift the clothes or comforter out wet in order to stick it in the touchy dryer side, so wev'e destroyed several comforters with the manual washer and spin dry unit.

Our LG top loader washing machine it's quiet and I hear the neighbors and In-laws noisy machines, I won't go back to those units again, plus our manual machine was interfering with the sound system.

The tough part was coughing up the 21,000 pesos plus two year warranty for an additonal 2,700 pesos but well worth it, if they can't find the replacement parts then they have to give us another brand new washing machine.

Welcome to the forum moonunit, enjoy.
Agree with modern technology,,,,,,,,, until it goes wrong, we had an American home front load machine that was pretty basic and worked for 6 years,,,,, the outlaws wore it out washing 3 to 4 times a day, neighbours clothes as well as theirs.
The new machine is great Samsung 12Kg and I'm sure it will go 10 years or more because it's in our house and not the outlaws, only bi*ch is no drain pump, a trap for young players here as I have seen and experienced.

Cheers, Steve.
