It's not been deliberately trying to be tight fisted,just the way it happened.
We bought a new machine,first Hoover,when we moved into a new house shortly after getting married,had it 15+year with a repair or two,then the repair man declared it not worth mending,so we bought Hoover no2(same model faster spin),another 14+ years passed by,with a couple of repair jobs IIRC when it died of the same problem(programmer?) as Hoover No1, and we bought the Hotpoint on special from Currys as was.
We also have a dryer,Creda 13+years old,that's only used in winter when clothes can't be dried outdoors on the rotary dryer.
