I need a new washing machine.   I wanted the Fisher & Paykel  one, but it is too tall and the lid wont open fully as it is uner the dryer.  We have a small laundry and don't have room for a front loader to open either.

Has anyone got the LG one with the bifold lid as that looks like the only one that will fit

What are other peoples experiences?

I had an F & P with a bifold lid. I now have a LG without a bifold lid. So not really helpful to question I guess, but anyway I preferred the F & P because I could spin without rinsing. The LG I have to rinse as well as spin., can't spin by itself. Also the LG seems more restrictive in terms of what wash temperatures I can select. The F & P just seemed to have more settings generally.

The F & P broke down several times. I did have extended warranty though and it was fixed promptly each time. However I sold it shortly after the extended warranty ran out, as I wanted to sell it while it was still working.

I've had the LG for a couple of years now and it is working just fine.

Just watch with the lint filters as we had to keep replacing them because of tears. But i think the newer ones may have different filters now.

I also had an LG bi-fold and never had any issues and was sad to leave it behind with the ex.  Ours was only a small 5.5 kg I think... not sure what they are like for the heavier machines.

We have the LG with the bi-fold lid - 7.5kg, so takes a large wash. It was my DH's machine before I met him, so would be at least 7yrs old by now, quite possibly more. Never had a problem with it. And I'm short, so the bi-fold lid is great - means the dryer can be positioned lower on the wall!  biggrin.gif

I've had 2, an old one and a new one, both were awesome and both easily fit under a dryer
