Well Bertha is no more
I found a nice Bosh WFF 2000 only 15 miles away with 1day to go and a starting bid of £9.99
Description was "Bosch wff2000 washing machine owned by us from new. This when purchased was the best. It has a proper stainless steel drum that can be repaired not like the cheap plastic outer drum machines that if something goes wrong then that's it.
Relisted as buyer thought they were buying a tumble dryer. :)
It works and has no known issues.
It had new drum bearings and drum seals 18 months ago along with new brushes for the motor, new drain pump and new door seal. This was all done as a complete refurbishment.
It's clean and looks good we are having a new kitchen fitted and the boss (my wife) wants a built in one.
Sad to see it go, but someone will hopefully have years of trouble free service out of her. "
I offered £25 and waited... we settled on £30
It weighs a lot more that the Creda so I was not going to even try to put in on the top
so it swooped places with the dishwasher I need to alter the divider now though as you cant open the dishwasher unless you pull the plugs out on the left
The floor is also a bit wet thanks to water that managed to defy gravity and escape out of the hose
