      Unused Brand New UK Washer and Dryer for Sale

      Just the day before we had our furniture taken to be shipped over to Adelaide, we purchased a brand new washing machine and tumble dryer, as we were told that these two items are quite expensive to purchase here.

      Our container arrived yesterday and could not wait to use our new washing machine. I used an adapter to connect our washing machine, but it tripped the electric switch outside the house. I changed the English plug for an Australian plug and it still tripped the electric switch, so I changed it from a 10 amp Australian plug to a 15 amp Australian plug. But then found out that the actual pins were to big for my sockets. What have found out is that the rented house we are living in has only got 10 amp sockets and we cannot use any more than 10 amp plugs/applicances from the UK, we had to buy a toaster and a kettle because ours would not work, thus tripping the electric switch all the time.

      Hence we are selling both our un-used brand new Washing Machine and Tumble Dyer:

      Are you sure it's not just faulty?
      I know UK run's 13 amp fuses, but most british washer work fine.
      Does it have WWW (World Wide Warranty)?

      The problem you will have is that many houses will run a 10 amp trip
