Wish I had known better

I bought this machine 3 weeks ago for normal domestic use and I won’t be keeping it. The main problem is the very poor spin cycle. The clothes, towels sheets come out quite wet so they take a lot longer to dry especially cotton fabrics, jeans, windcheaters etc. The towels become quite stiff and rough because of the extra water left in them and most things need time in the dryer after line drying. The cycles are long with limited ability to adjust them. The buttons take a long time to register and it’s diffficult to add something to the machine once started. The machine has been checked by the service provider and given the all clear.

Purchased in July 2020.

Absolutely love this machine.

Use for baby clothes up to dirty and dusty hi cos work clothes worn by a welder. Gives clothes a deep clean. Cycle times are great. Love that I can set a favourite cycle and also link to phone. Must remember to change spin & rinse according to clothing items as it gives it a good rinse and spin.

Purchased in February 2020 at Harvey Norman for A$900.00.

I just bought a Simpson 12kg Top Loader SWT1254LCWA and it has the low profile agitator. I'm just wondering if it has a lint filter anywhere, and if so, how do you clean it?

Hi Angela, I couldn’t find a lint filter. This machine leaves a lot of lint on the clothes and I presume it’s because of the very poor spin. The clothes, towels etc are left with a lot of water in them so I don’t think all the water is emptied out from under the tub. This water sits there drying out and that leaves a lint residue on everything. Overall a very poor machine!
