Simpson washing Machine top loader 7kg SWT7055LMWA WHAT A DUD
My previous Simpson washing machine served me well for 14 years still going strong but lid rusted out so thought about time for a new machine. Bought this 7kg one and hate it. Although I follow instructions carefully clothes are always tangled. As there is no lint filter I am constantly have to hand pick lint of clothes. Terrible in particular for the darker ones. It has no agitator something the salesman from Bing Lee assured me it had as he did not have a machine on the showroom floor to show me. He also said it would be kinder to clothes w...ell it's not, worse if anything. The spin cycle does not do a decent spin so I always have to re spin the clothes. The beep at the end of the wash is so faint unless I am standing in the laundry I can't hearit in other rooms and I don't have a large home. If I could afford to buy another washing machine I would but will never buy another Simpson. What a dud
Purchased in April 2019 for $600.00.
Great Machine. Be aware of drainage pipe
On the first wash of this machine after set up, the laundry was flooded. There is a manufacturers fault with the drain pipe. There was a small hole in the pipe near the bend that goes into the machine. We bought a new drain pipe from the hardware store which fixed the problem. Other than that, the machine has worked perfectly. I can fit a pair of queen sheets and a queen doona cover. Instead of washing all day (about 4-5 loads), washing is now completed in a couple of loads. Still getting used to the cycles. Found the Daily 45 cycle to be the best fit for our household of 2.
Questions & Answers
Does anyone have a photo of the transit straps/bolts? I suspect my washer has the same problem.
Very recently purchased Simpson washing machine SWT7055LMWA. Have balanced machine and run through complete cycle without clothes and worked perfectly however when clothes are added in accordance with the instruction manual the machine jumps all over the place during the pulsating spin cycles. What to do? Is the low profile agitator a contributing factor? Very disappointed with product.
We had the same problem. Rang Appliances Online who referred us to Mayner & Cochran to check if problem was a warranty issue. $139 later found out that installers had not removed transit straps from washing machine motor. Once removed our new washing machine works like a charm.
We are indebted to you Dooshnicks .... just checked under the machine and to our surprise discovered the transit straps still in place.Test it in the morning but I'm sure all will be well. Thank you so much for taking the time to respond.
