      Disadvantages

      A poor machine, thankfully no longer available

      I have had the Beko WMA641 washing machine for about two years and to this point have had no major problems. Admittedly it does require careful management which I will expliain in full later on.

      It is a free standing, front loading fully automatic unit measuring 85cm x 54cm x 59cm (hxdxw). It has a load capacity of 6kg and operates at 1400 rpm. The drum is made os stainless steel while the main unit is a mixture of durable plastic and metal finished in glossy white. Unfortunately it does not have an LCD display as featured on many of the more recent models, instead relying upon the tradtional knob and button interface mounted on the console above the door and to the right of the detergent dispenser tray. This interface allows for 41 wash presets. It has an A rating for energy, wash and spin drying efficiency and also includes child proof features on the front door. In terms of consumpion it will use almost 13 gallons of water per wash, using 1.14 kwHrs in doing so.

      Now to the best of my knowledge this item is no longer for sale, and to be honest i'm not surprised. It really takes getting used too. Firstly there are streaks on your clothes if you put too much detergent in. And I don't mean amssive amounts either.

      Then if you even think of doing a full load, you won't get fresh, clean smelling clothes. In my experience, you cannot fill the drum more than two thirds capacity. You must also put all items on for an extra spin to gaurnatee the washing is not still soaking once it has completed it's cycle.

      None of the above is mentioned in the sales literature or the manual, but then again if it did you wouldn't buy. And as I mentioned it isn't available any longer despite being only a couple of years old. It is doing the job requird of it at the moment but I have not renewed the warranty so when it goes belly up, I won't think of getting it repaired. Hopefully someone will run some sort of trade in scheme and I can purchase a new machine which does what you expect to do without having to make consessions.
