Find the Almanac here, too!

Tell me do you have rogue timers on your machines like we do?
I fill the washing machine up with washing. Turn the machine on. It says 1hour for the programme. I go back in 1 hour the machine says 3 mins. I go back in 5 mins and the machine says 1 min. Has this machine got a sadistic sense of humour or is it my imagination. On more than one occasion I have found myself swearing at it.
Are your machines better mannered than mine?

I've been wondering that myself!

Would yours happen to be a front-loader? Mine is and does the same thing with the time...yes it has a mind of it's own!(or the computer does)
