Where is a place with good service and reasonable prices?  Recommendations for a machine max 15-20 000 baht.

Brand and model? 

Thanks in advance!

I don't know specific to Chang Rai...but bought ours from PowerBuy last year (prices around Thailand are amazingly similar). Same deals at PowerBuy, PowerMall, HomePro, etc etc. Brand Electrolux...so far very happy with it. You really need to assess what features and even more importantly what capacity you need. How many loads per week, how many people in your household, how many 'oversize' items you might have to wash.

Front loaders are useful if you place them in the kitchen (very common here) and then can be fitted under a countertop space for efficiency. But given different circumstances...top loaders are my preference.

Agree - they free up the space above so very good for tight quarters.  They also use less water but that is not normally that much of a concern here.

I would hope so too. Bought a Samsung top loader, 12kg capacity in 2012 for Bht 12,000. Still going strong being used 3 x a week. It is outside on the kitchen patio.

I bought a fridge a couple of years back at the electrical goods store opposite Ribs and Co.

Marked down to 30,000 from 70,000 list price they delivered (25kms) and set it up for me.

Thank you everyone for information and ideas! 

I have to get out and look for the different brands and models. One problem will be that brochures are in Thai so not easy to know what you are looking at.

Scea that shop is called Thawee Yon .Yes they have many good deals and do delivery and set up and repairs when necessary. "Thawee Yon "  is phonetic for the Thai name of the company you mentioned  Scea my B.I.L works for them as a pump specialist. They have many shops around the north.  I have a 12kg LG that is working like new  but the machine was very busy for 8 years and still going strong.

My wife purchased a top of the type LG 2-tub 3 months ago.  It has a problem last month and we were told the 1 year warranty applied only to the motor and transmission, and since or problem had to do with the pumps, we were SOL.   We had a different company come in and check it out.  A 3,000 Baht repair charge later, a lesson learned.

 

There seems to be a massive difference in warranties from company to company in Thailand.  On the face of it, they do appear similar - just be sure you have a good Thai reader check the warranty before you buy.

Thank you Scea and Randell. I went to this shop Thawee Yon and there I found a Electrolux top-loaded 14 kg for 12 990 baht.  (ewt1454dcwa) Price was reduced from 15 990 baht. 

The salesmen did not speak English and just wanted to speak Thai but I walked around in this quite big shop and asked for someone that speaks English. And I found this guy Udomsak that was very helpful. He helped me with the contract, we printed out a Google Maps pic to show where my house is. The machine was delivered and installed next day. 

I have done two loads of laundry so far and I  am very happy.  The speed of spinning is 850 RPM and that is enough because the drum is quite big. Probably equal with a smaller drum and 1200 RPM. 

And  I checked prices in Lazada for same machine and they wanted 18 690 baht. 

So far so good!

Good and that appears to be a newer model of inverter type and that you got it for a fair price - but it appears Lazada prices are from those trying to make a quick baht rather than make actual sales.  On Shopee it is 11,991 from a reliable seller (shipping would likely have made it about the same or more than you paid).
