In China, it is quite common that the washing machine won’t be connected to the hot water pipe and will only wash the clothes with cold water. More expensive machines will use electricity to heat the water within the machine during the cycle. Clothes dryers are also not popular as Chinese people will usually hang their wet clothes out to dry. If such conveniences are absolutely necessary for you, please make this very clear to your LC Relocation consultant before you start viewing any properties and ensure that it is stated clearly in the offer letter to the landlord and in the contract before you sign it.
