We have a Panasonic washing machine approx 5 years old. 8kg capacity with manual.
It has been a very good machine being used everyday only just recently getting noiser, have been told it's the bearings that are going. We decided to buy a new machine rather than have it repaired. Feel guilty taking it to the tip as it was working well until it was unplumbed. If anyone knows or can do this bearing repair they are more than welcome to have this machine so it can carry on washing away! Just need to come and collect it.
