Ideas for recycling old washing machine?

Recommended Posts

My new washer (dryer :oops: ) comes on Tuesday, so before I call the council & get them to take away my old washer are there any bits of it I can scavenge to use in a different way?

I have thought about using the drum to perhaps grow someting in?


I have also offered it on freecycle for spares. No takers yet.

You can also make an excellent BBQ out of the drum.


The concrete blocks can be used to weight down A frame signs


The door could be a porthole if mounted on the wall in a kiddies bedroom


The waste pipe could be used link water butts together


The hoses can be used on your new machine


Oh my freind owns a washing machine shop so I've seen a few of these things done there.


I bought a washing machine this morning off Ebay. I paid £26 quid for a machine that is less than a year old and in perfect working condition. Reason for sale - stupid youngsters who spend too much money. They have moved into a new (rented) flat and the kitchen is black and silver (it was hideous!) so they have bought a silver machine to match!!!! Lets hope the next place they rent doesn't have a white kitchen otherwise they will be buying another white machine!!!
