Q: Does your washing machine tie your clothes into a big knot?

Mine does.  If there was ever a need to tie all your clothes into a big knot, this machine would be perfect.

You have to learn to be more like the Chinese, tie your clothes in a knot before washing them, the washer will untie them, makes sense? TIC.

You probably cant read it because its a cheap chinese washing machine, but you probably have unwittingly hot the " secret, fire escape" button.  It happened to me, no big deal. Rookie mistake.  Just remember where it is, for when the blaze comes, having all your clothes tied together makes an enviable rope. Just tie it to the railing and escape to freedom.

Thank you Sanyo washing machine! Another life saved.

yes, and its a b!tch to untie sometimes.  i bought these oversized weird plastic balls with jagged edges to throw in the wash with the clothes.  it helps separate them.  it works a bit, but not a complete fix.

Yes it does. But for once I would say that China abides the laws of physics. It seems there is an even greater tendency for things to get properly tied together if it is some of the wifes clothing that is easy to rip apart. 

Perhaps this is a problem of top loading machines. It never happened for me with front loading machines. 

 

It's convenient though, just yank on a sleeve and you have all your laundry out of the machine.

Mine does this too, plus tears random holes and removes underwiring from bras!

Get a front-loader for around 3K RMB...it also heats the water for whites. Or, get an Ayi for 80RMB/wk who wlll use the rock and river technique

I had 3 or 4 different washing machines and never encountered this. From the sound of it, I'm pretty glad I didn't.

  No, she dries them, folds them and packs them neatly in my wardrobe. Just don't tell her I call her my washing machine.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
