Dyson washing machines
« on: November 11, 2018, 06:38:03 AM »
Looking at getting a refurbished Dyson washing machine. Heard mixed opinions on them from different people. Whatís wrong with them?! I know they go faulty but is that cos theyíre mistreated or something? Also, if I do get one, how to I optimise itís lifespan? Finally, whatís the common issues to go wrong with them? Donít go too geeky please, I know nothing about washing machines!
DC14s are tanks, just need a slightly longer motor life. Do plastic parts often break on DC14s? Nope. DC41- Sexy looking futuristic and powerful machine. Just needs a better designed cleaner head wheel and cyclone clip along with a dense metal rod in the chassis.

The contrarotator on the drums buggers up so many are locked.

The PCBs blow for fun.

We had one for a while in the shop to wash filters in. I ended up breaking it for parts as we were fixing it more than using it.

They were a great idea but unfortunately not a good product as they were never developed.

If you *really* want one, get one off Steve who is somewhere Birminghamish like you. He has an FB page and will give a warranty.
