Q Does this washing machine heat the water? I have only access to cold water in the laundry and I want something that heats water.
Asked by Polly (22/06/2010 12:32:52 PM)

Was this question helpful to you? Yes No

A This machine does heat the water with an internal element. It only has a cold water inlet hose, so you cannot use hot water even if you wanted to.

Q Can I use the spin cycle for spinning handwashing, without using the wash program? eg.....have just done handwashing and need to get the excess water off, so can I put it in the washing machine and turn the dial to spin to spin the handwashing?
Asked by Marcia (31/07/2010 2:36:52 PM)

Was this question helpful to you? Yes No

A The WAE20261AU does have a spin only option in which you can put hand washed clothes in the machine and spin them to extract some of the water.

"Delightful and funny"

I just wanted to say thank you for a really good experience buying my new washing machine. I had trouble ordering on line but once i spoke to someone it all happened so smoothly and quickly. The guys who delivered the machine were delightful and funny. I thought it was worth a note as in general customer service in Australia is so bad. Thank you for all your help.

Amazed... Here is my comparison: RETAIL STORE: My visit to a well known retail shop. Rude staff (apparently I interrupted their chat), didn't know the product (seriously reading the brochure to me) and then out of stock and had "no idea" when they would get it. APPLIANCES ONLINE: Easy to use website, Great phone advice regarding which model to choose, Ordered online and managed to pick the wrong delivery date, Emailed and fixed immediately, Delivery people called as promised and set a time... then arrived on time (never happens in Canberra), Really polite, sorted everything amazingly fast. Ok, so I must admit I was waiting (actually expecting) something to go wrong. How do you get this level of service and substantially cheaper..? Must admit I am almost hoping for something to breakdown so I can see the repair service... Do you helicopter people in..? ;-) PS If you can give the delivery guys a pat on the back, they really did a great job getting appliances in and out of a tiny laundry.

"Who ensured that the machine is delivered to me on time"

Dear Sir,
I received a replaced washing machine on 15/01/09 as my original purchase was faulty. This email is to say thank you, in particular to Andrew who ensured that the machine is delivered to me on time. I have had no problems with this machine, and I feel more grateful than ever for immigrating to Australia where I can enjoy this service.


I am replying to this email to express my extreme pleasure and delight with the service provided by Appliances On Line - from the time order to delivery was a period of only 21 hours - machine delivered, installed and rubbish and old machine all taken away - WOW I AM IMPRESSED. I am impressed with the efficiency and ease of this transaction and the pleasant nature of the Delivery Team. My whole experience with your company has been easy and stress and problem free. Thank you - I shall ring your praises loud and clear to friends and family - it is wonderful in a time where customer service seems to be unheard of - to find and deal with such efficiency. You promised and you delivered - Well done. Thank you APPLIANCES ON LINE.

"And never raised an eyebrow"

I just wanted to congratulate you on the outstanding service provided by your delivery staff Ciaran and Tomar. Not only did they haul my washing machine swiftly up a very challenging staircase, they showed a high level of skill, lateral thinking and professionalism in fitting the machine, which turned out to require removing a cupboard door and replacing it afterwards. They were swift, careful, clean and tidy and never raised an eyebrow to suggest the extra efforts might have been annoying at one of their first deliveries for the day. Truly outstanding. I would thoroughly recommend Appliances Online to absolutely anyone. Thanks!
