The Spanish sentence La lavadora ha dicho "basta" can be translated literally as The washing machine has said "enough". The meaning of this sentence, however is [The washing machine has stopped working]. I don't know if there are similar expressions in English or in other languages, where a household appliance or a machine "says something" in the sense that it stops working or in other senses. Another example in Spanish would be Unos caramelos que dicen "cómeme", translated into English as Some sweets that are telling me "Eat me". What is meant is [Some sweets that are/look delicious].
