Buy­ing sec­ond hand

Element - - LIFESTYLE -

Re­cy­cling sec­ond-hand stuff saves re­sources, but th­ese machines tend to have a hard life. So only buy a wash­ing ma­chine that is less than five years old where all the seals and fit­tings are in good con­di­tion, oth­er­wise you could be look­ing at costly re­pairs in the not too dis­tant fu­ture. Prefer­ably buy from deal­ers: as they are sub­ject to the Con­sumer Guar­an­tees Act, while a pri­vate sale is not.
