    Default In the market for a new washing machine..

    Hey all,

    We're in the market for a new washing machine, and I'm after one that's good at removing pet hair.

    Our current washing machine does zilch to remove dog hair. My girls a heavy shedder and no matter what we put in the machine, it comes out covered in dog hair. We've tried literally everything you could imagine to clean it out. I think it's just at the point where it's getting too old.

    We were after a new one anyway. But yeah! Would love to find one that's good at removing dog hair, I'm getting sick of having to use lint rollers so much.

    So if you have any advice, let me know.

    Thanks in advance .

    as there are no hair filters in washing machines, im unsure IF there is one.
    However, i had something recommended to me, that sounds logical, just i can never be bothered.
    Whenever you wash the dog bedding, put it in a duvet cover, then wash it, the hair remains in the duvet cover, for you to shake out on your lawn.

    You're lucky you don't own a GSD.

    Hahahaha! So much truth :P.

    Omg RileyJ so many links haha. I've been googling for a while so I've seen a decent amount on getting rid of dog hair. But I'll definitely check out those links and see if I find anything new.

    As for colour coordinating my wardrobe - usually not so much of an issue for me but my nursing uniform is navy blue and my dog sheds light golden brown/white hair. Unfortunate! Don't particularly want patients seeing me covered in dog hair :P.

    And yes I heard about the Samsung washing machines the other night on the news :/. Unfortunate - will definitely be a massive loss in sales for Samsung.

    Bernie - yeah I know beko have a specific setting for pet hair which would be awesome, but they seem to only do front loaders in their new models which is weird? I'm after a top loader. As far as I can tell there's no other washing machines that make anything in relating to removing pet hair, but I figure there must be something about washing machines that's going to be better at removing it than not. Was hoping someone would know :P. But yeah it's not so much her bedding going in the washing machine that's the issue its that she's always shedding and that means on us too haha :P. There's no escape!

    It's actually surprising to me that there isn't more washing machines with pet hair settings these days, considering you get vacuum cleaners and stuff purely tailored to removing pet hair.

    As for the GSD, my last dog was a german shepherd, and her hair wasn't half as bad as my girl now haha. We literally have tumbleweed sized balls of hair rolling down our tiles if we don't sweep for two days :P. And it's worse because her coats all light coloured haha.

    My work uniforms are Blue,Light blue shirts and Navy blue pants and do get covered in white hair from excited JS x 4 when I get home. I have an LG 10KG front loader that does the job. We also wash the dog bedding with good results. I use the Allergy Care Cycle.

    Hey Mitte. Thanks for your reply. We are after a top loader but after your reply andddd..

    RileyJ - after having a look at your links and some other reviews. Simpson and LG definitely seem to be the top two in terms of pet hair/lint removal.

    Still haven't decided what machine to get yet, but I think I'm edging towards LG. Mostly because we have a lot of LG products in our home and they're all really reliable.

    Pitty there's not more information out there specifically related this :P it's all very broad.
