Nope, I won't be the one to replace it. it will probably sit idle for the next few months until someone else buys a battery for it. The only way I'd be willing to buy a battery is if I really need it to buy a load of hollow blocks. Nope, let it sit.

We own two, a Samsung automatic that I bought when I was single and a single tub off brand that my wife bought because she didnt like the way the Samsung cleaned. We are doing the wash for eight people. My wife now uses the automatic I brought for just large items like sheets, Uses the single tub for most everything else, and still does the pail and scrub board for some things. I dont complain as she can get stains out that would have been impossible in the states. She can regularly get out tuba and oil stains. Washing is not my department so as far as I'm concerned if its clean Im happy...

As luck would have it, they were out of stock on the LG I wanted to get, so I picked up a Midea brand washer (FP90LTL070GETLN) for about the same price as the LG (13,000 Php). Of course the the hoses that came with the machine were to short, so I had to go back to the mall to pick up new ones (1,450 Php). Next, I noticed that waster was leaking from around the handle on the hose bib, so at first I tried to fix it, but then I just ended up replacing it. And to think, I came here to take it easy.

Looks like a nice washer, I had similar issues replacing the drain hose, nothing seems to fit. The most wanted items seem to be out of stock also.

I'm surprised how expensive electronic appliances here...

Bought Fujidenzo air dry dryer (less than php 3,000,small one), I don't want to use washing machine anymore because i think it's a waste of electricity&water-also it'll ruin clothes much faster (moreover if you use the lower quality machine)
What I do is soak the clothes for few minutes, swirl it around with hand, rinse, then put em inside laundry machine bag, throw inside machine, hang dry inside bathroom♥

[EDIT] This will only really work well for OCD, single woman like me I think lol. I personally prefer Electrolux for washing machine. Back in hometown we got this Electrolux washing machine, already 10 years and still spinning well (within 10 years only regular maintenance and minor repairing needed) My Mom is such a great preserver that machine still looks new!
