Hiya,
Just sorting the kitchen for our first holiday let - any suggestions on make/model of washing machine to install?
Thanks
Stu

Ours are both quite old so you wouldn't be able to get the same models now (Tricity Bendix and Hoover for what it's worth). I recommend the simpler the better - guests will inevitably try to use it without reading any instructions.

It won't need a large drum either, unless you're planning on washing the bed linen & towels in it.

For a rental, get the cheapest/simplest with as little "go wrong" electronics as possible !

My washing machine, a rather basic Bosch, has just celebrated its 21st birthday.

Simple, manual one. Guests will not bother to read instructions for digital ones. Small drum as they will only be washing a few clothes.

Avoid Hotpoint -as unreliable! One at home broke down in under 2 years (was too expensive to repair) and the Hotpoint in my cottage also packed up ....

I looked at Which reports when replacing the Hotpoint I got as part of fixtures and fittings in my cottage and choose a Bosch ...

It has a large drum as housekeeper uses it for laundry...
