Washing Machines

Srsly.

I have for many years now found washing machines problematic. This is a partial list of problems…

1. washing machine floods the kitchen sink, and so the kitchen
2. washing machine blocks, and so after filling, never drains (my dressing gown and towel were locked in there for a week)
3. washing machine has no “start” button, so you put stuff in, select the programme and temperature… …and nothing happens, so you take your stuff out (eventually – when the damn thing decides after some random but always long interval that you can now unlock the door, even though there is no water in there and never was any water in there)
4. washing machine runs, but does not use water

All I want in a washing machine is that it starts, uses water, and drains.

IS IT SO DIFFICULT?!?!?!?!?!?!
