lid needs replacing again, was replaced in November 2020 and has same issue with cracks in the plastic again. I 9nly wash 3 to 4 times a week. Yes my clothes come out tangled with lint on them

This machine has caused nothing by headaches. Our clothes are always covered in lint no matter what I wash, how I wash, do a drum clean etc. especially our black clothes. Everything comes out so tightly bound I struggle to separate it and our clothes are extremely wrinkled. It is noisy, it needs constant balancing. With 2 sheets in it, it sounds like the drum is going to come flying out! It’s a really terrible machine. The lint on our clothes is ridiculous and we spend copious amounts of time rectifying the issue by hand. Steer clear!!

Do not buy this machine.
This machine has no lint basket/catcher and it leaves lint all over the clothes, it looks like the clothes are dirtier than when they go in, don’t waste your money on this machine, buy one with a lint filter.

Machine giving absolute headaches
Machine washes clothes clean--but,
cuts out after shaking violently during change of cycle around rinse.
It does not matter whether few clothes or medium load..Lint everywhere, clothes come out all knotty.
Machine make a lot of loud noise during washing. I checked thoroughly to see if the feets were levelled, during use.
The machine is hardly used, because I am very frustrated and cranky, violently shaking and cutting out, especially.

Mass produced Garbage !!
I just got one for free and now I see why, this machine has so many issues it clearly has not been tested before production as the cycle times are all over the place, it spins forever but the load is still soaking wet, guess it is going to the dump now, almost brand new too ! Every buyer should get a full refund, class action I rekon, Absolute rubbish ! And store price nearly $800 !! PLEASE !

Do not buy this washing machine!!!
If I could give this machine 0 stars I would - It is the most useless washing machine I have ever used, it doesn't have a lint filter and the clothes come out dirtier than when they went in. Everything gets tangled and often you need to re-settle the machine. We purchased this machine for our first home, and from day 1 it was awful. I contacted Appliances Online who told me to contact Electrolux (parent company of Simpson) which I did - I told them the machine did not do what it is supposed to and that it was not as described, they told me to c...all Appliances Online cause it wasn't their problem. Then when I told them I'd already done that they told me to email Electrolux describing the situation to which they replied "you must clean the machine thoroughly between loads"..... which for one is not normal/realistic and for two it had the issues from first wash when the machine was brand new so that doesn't track. When I told them this all they would say is they could send out a technician to look but if there is no fault then we would be charged. So basically, apparently it is okay to sell people a product that doesn't even do it's job and then when you want to send it back it's just bad luck. We even purchased lint filter things to put in the machine which didn't help overly much and we follow the instructions on what to separate to a tee. We will be forking out more money to replace the machine with one that actually works and then I'm chucking this one in the trash where it belongs. I have attached a picture of the amount of lint that came off of one load of towels (all of which are the exact same fabric) for reference. Also cycle times are crazy long and yet clothes still don't clean properly...

Last Simpson washer lasted 22 years, no problems, thought I would buy same brand. Sheets knotted, lint on dark clothes. Very disappointed. Wish I could just swap it for different machine. Would never recommend it. $749 delivered

Ok for price
I paid about $669 delivered from appliances online.
It worls well as a washer. Although the cycles are long.
One main peive is that it pumps out first before it fills up.
So if you change the setting of the cycle once its started it will drain all the water out before it starts new cycle. Also. I like to recycle 2 buckets from each wash to conserve water. If i put it before i start the machine, it will just pump out tge water. I have to wait till it stops its initial pump out and starts filling before i can put my recycled water in.
As said before. If Ive charged my mind on what cycle i wanted after it was filling and if you do that. It will pump all the water out and start again.
Its a really stupid design of programming.

Very bad washing machine
Ties everything in knots even if it is not crowded in the machine.
There is no lint filter and everything comes out covered in lint.
This washing machine is not even a year old and it is also getting noisy.
I have had Simpson for 30 yrs and I would never buy one again.

Almost unfit for purpose.
Purchased this machine as it looked similar to our old LG. Discovered it has no LINT filter. Unless you separate your wash into groups, ie. towels, shirts, undies, bedding, etc, everything comes out covered in lint. When water is short doing 3 or 4 small washes instead of 1 larger one this is not practical. It can also manage to tie an almost perfect granny knot in the legs of a pair of pants. However the main problem is the lint. Contacted Simpson over one month ago was asked for our address to send a REP out, heard nothing since despite another e-mail. So now lack of service and interest is another problem and a turn off from buying any other product from this brand. 2 aged Pensioners.

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

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
I'm an "old girl" didn't know columns like this existed or I would never have bought my Simpson washing machine. How can people just sit back and do nothing when they have been ripped off by a company selling a machine which does not operate correctly (Simpson SWT7055LMWA). I'd like to see the company make a video showing this machine washing two sheets!!!I don't intend to sit back and do nothing. I saved for a long time to buy what I thought was a good machine, and not a cheapie.
yes, we are also very disappointed in our Simpson SWT7055LMWA washing machine, trusted the brand, but never again. Have found it rough on clothes,tangles items even when sorted- lint remains on anything dark, does not balance well with sheets etc, Husband is incredulous that it is able to remove foam padding from bra cups through the smallest of slits that he cannot see without his glasses!!!! Will never buy another Simpson/Electrolux
And being oldies, cannot just go out and buy new one, have to wait until have funds.
I am exactly the same. Super frsutrated. Loved our old simpson but this is the most useless machine I have ever owned. Absolute waste of money. I have emailed the customer contact that was referenced on some other reviews so hopefully someone can get back to me. Will update you.
Does anyone have a photo of the transit straps/bolts? I suspect my washer has the same problem.
the noise is so loud like a train coming. I wonder if its the transit straps that haven't been removed. only bought it 2 weeks ago, used it twice. has anyone got a photo of these transit straps. I live alone, no one to help me am elderly also.
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.
