Rust in peace

After 12 years of loyal service, my washing machine broke down on us today. How could I tell?
- It made whiney noises
- It didn't rotate when it was supposed to
- Despite setting the thermo-dial to 30 degrees celcius, the laundry was HOT to the touch (For Pete's sake, I hope nothing shrunk)

Since it's an ancient Candy Activa 106 plus, it might actually be cheaper to buy a new machine than try and get this one fixed. My thanks go out to Candy for building a kick ass machine that didn't need any service in those 12 years, and to Wheel of Fortune for letting me win the darned thing as an 18 year old student.

Time to go scout the review and price-check websites. *groan*

Wow, it's like an epidemic. My dad's washing machine broke down, then your colleague's, and now yours. I better go give ours a flu shot or something.

Even so, 12 years of work without any service is pretty damn awesome.

Never knew you actually won a prize!! :P

I guess with all that past TV attention you're not as upset about the Singing Bee fiasco as I am ;)

At least there's three people there who need to use the thing ;)

Ah, so the repair guy said it's a write-off?

My parents bought a new one about half a year ago,I think. So far I heard nothing bad about it from them. It's a toploader AEG Lavamat.
