I,ve recently bought a new washer-dryer - a free standing 1600 rpm washer dryer in white. The AEG L16850.
It came out as the Best Buy in Which guide's survey with a score of 75% saying, "The Best Buy AEG Electrolux L16850 is one of the best washer-dryers we’ve seen, combining excellent washing results with impressive drying speed."
The cheapest seller (that I had actually heard of) was Sainsbury's. They delivered it on time (two days from ordering it), unpacked it, installed it and took my old one away. So I'm very happy with it. And them.
Now to wrestle with the controls...
