Hey, i am in the process off buying a new washing machine and i was thinking if there is any British manufactures that still make washing machines, as i might as well gave my money to the British economy than to some far eastern one. The only one i can find is Harris Classic which only make twin tub's.

If anyone know off any please let me know

Hello there,

Sadly, there are no washing machines made in Britain anymore. I believe the last machines to be made here were Hotpoint WMA machines, but after Hotpoint was taken over by Indesit in 2007, the production of Hotpoint washers has now moved to the companies main plant in Italy. I believe the only appliances made in the UK anymore are Hotpoint and Indesit vented dryers (which are made at the former Hotpoint factory) and White Knight dryers (which are made at the Crosslee factory in Halifax)
