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?

"This experience was, "Wow!""

From start to finish this experience was, "Wow!". My washing machine died and I thought, "Oh NOOOO! This is going to be a nightmare!" Earlier in the year I bought a fridge from 2nds World online and it was absolutely painful. I live on the 3rd floor and delivery in Woonona is always "Out of Region", I don't have a trailer to remove the old machine,I am a woman on my own - so no men to help carry it up the stairs....I thought this is going to be another bad experience. With Appliances Online nothing was a drama...delivered the day after I ordered it and up my stairs, connected it up, took the old away, came on time, delivery guys were kind and accomodating...the ordering was simple - found product and service reviews very helpful. Price seems fair and reasonable and I didn't have to leave home to find a machine. I am absolutely WOW'ed by this company and will CERTAINLY order from them again and HIGHLY recommend them to anyone. Have already done so!! And the doing

"Thanks Appliances Online!"

Appliances Online is a great way to purchase high quality products at very low prices. I recently bought a top of the range washing machine for the best price I could find, delivery was included, and to make things even easier, my old washing machine was taken away, saving me time and effort. Thanks Appliances Online!

"A good choice for people with a physical disability"

We recently purchased a bundle deal for the 7kg Front Load Electrolux Washing Machine EWF1074 together with the 5kg Electrolux Dryer EDV505. The delivery was quick, efficient and all the staff associated with the service were impeccable in providing information. The products listed I would recommend as they are well made and easy to use. A good choice for people with a physical disability, as access to these products is very accessible.
