The Laundry King- laundromat Ballarat & black hill

DWP_20170422_17_49_04_Prouring a period when I had no working clothes washing appliance, and was pondering and researching which one to buy next, I discovered a surprisingly clean and convenient place to wash and dry your clothes just up the road, at 100 Simpson street, ballarat, victoria, 3350 just on the corner of walker street “The Laundry King”


This little cottage business has sprung up quite recently, and the facilities are sparkling new, clean and reliable.

They also offer FREE wifi internet access that is UNLIMITED so you can watch a movie on your phone or laptop while your clothes wash or dry.

The machines are all coin operated, so you just need to bring a handful of $1 coins with you as some dirty rotten bogan stole the change machine recently… (the golf house hotel pokie machine room down the road is a good source of gold though if you need notes changed.)

If anything goes wrong, you can contact the owners on 0428 233 330



The location is a bit odd- a strange little orphaned line of disparate, unrelated shops exists on a lonely corner, seemingly in the middle of suburban nowhere.

Laundry king shares its complex with a “business broker” that never seems to be open, and a little hairdresser.

WP_20170422_17_48_13_ProThe washing machines are brand spanking new, and seem to be cleaned down and disinfected by one of the rather lovely co-owners a couple times a day with very powerful, but environmentally friendly products. (I know this from the smell, and the distinct lack of a sky high feeling and brain damage when I have been in the building when the cleaning is done.

A wash costs between $4 and $8, Depending on the size of the machine selected.

The HUGE one to the right is the blanket/doona capable jumbo washer, and the cycles on all machines seem to take a very speedy half hour to complete.

A big line of very fast gas dryers occupies the other side, and a surprisingly large number of people come in during winter to use them- they are quite cost effective, as a few dollars will dry quite a swag of clothes, which would cost a kings ransom in electricity at home to do, not to mention the fire risk.


Recorded CCTV from every corner of the building, plus outside, also discourages clothes thefts, and creeps from stealing underwear for very unsavoury purposes that might make you shudder.



Family friendly, they have even set up a play pen with a few toys for bored kids, plus FREE wifi for the BIG kids to play on.

The name “Laundry King” seemed at first to have no relation to the owners at all.. but looking more closely, and seeing relationships with Blueprint consulting group, and Yardparty, both of which are run by Kieren King- I wonder if he is one of the owners, and the gorgeous red-headed lady who cleans the machines is his wife… The website is registered in his name after all, along with his sole trader ABN 86476836930


Electrolux Free Samsonite luggage offer with Washers & dryers Apr 28, 2017 to Jun 11, 2017

On the weekend, we got sick and tired of going to the Laundry king Laundromat every weekend, and went out to buy ourselves a brand spanking new washing machine.

We ended up settling on the Electrolux 8.5KG front loader EWF12853 from Harvey Norman. (it’s a good looking thing, isn’t it!)

It seemed a pretty decent price, at under $800, which was what I paid for the last washer over 7 years ago, and it had some nifty features such as quick steam cleaning modes, called “Vapor Cycle” which seemed pretty innovative and useful. Typically, I’ve shied away from front loaders because they tend to take forever to deliver a single washload… but this one has pretty quick specifications, which I’ll write about in the near future.

This month, at Harvey Norman, (and other major retailers, I presume) the Electrolux Laundry products came Electrolux_samsonite_b'lite_3_55cm_spinner_offerwith a free bonus of a piece of luggage from Samsonite- a B’lite 3 55cm Spinner.

Apparently, you can live the Electrolux life with one of these. Either way, its FREE. Might as well claim it!

Doesn’t seem too hard, does it? Till the website asked you about the serial number… which is probably stamped on the BACK of the 75KG Electrolux front loading washing machine you probably just had installed in a hutch or nook in what is usually the most cramped room in the house!!

There is an easy way to find the serial number of your Electrolux laundry product though, without moving it or any backbreaking work!

Instructions on where to locate or find the Serial number on an Electrolux EWF12853 front loading washer:

  1. Look at the packaging and plastic wrapping the Electrolux washer came in- you should find a sticker on the wrapping somewhere!

  3. On mine, the serial number is located directly under the BIG product number in the middle
  4. In the photo I have taken to the right, the serial number to our EWF12853 is underneath the blue pen that is obscuring the number on the picking/packing stickerWP_20170521_01_41_26_Pro
