Searching for used washer in Phnom Penh for local family.....any tips on brands , average price , things to consider ? Thanks in advance !
Do they even want a washing machine? They’ll probably have no idea how to use it, but once they do they’ll start using it daily for their entire extended family, and once they get their first electricity bill they’ll most likely go back to hand washing.
I'd tend to disagree on that. A washing machine is a huge energy saver for the average household here. I've seen how much energy has to be put into hand-washing, it can take hours of stamping around in basins and endless rinsing and wringing for the average old dear with a big family here. I think the machines do use a fair amount of electricity but are a huge time-saver. With the climate here there is no need for heated tumble dryers, it only takes a few hours on a hanger to dry most things. If other people want to use it they should charge an amount that at least covers the electricity cost. I'm pretty surprised to see how many cleaning/ironing shops have opened around town over the last few years. I've had an LG toploader machine for about the last 5 years and it's fantastic. I haven't ironed anything in all that time! 8-)
My post was Only partially serious, sense of humour? :D

My missus wouldn’t use our washing machine for the first few mths we were living together, reckoned it didn’t clean the clothes as well as she could...until she got used to using it correctly now she cringes at having to hand wash whenever we stay in the province. Some of the washing machines available now are very energy efficient and use fk all electricity. Got ours from K-four in 2012 and it’s still going strong, used pretty much daily.
