WHAT IS IT?
A washing machine that is made by Beko. It is energy rated as A+ and that means it does not use very much electricity to run it.
My washing machine has got 11 different programs but I do not use all of them. I can also prewash, extra rinse and quick wash if I need to. I think the prewash feature is very useful when my children dirty their clothes because sometimes stains do not come out first time. I like that I can set a timer for 3 or 6 hours and that is very useful to me because I work hours that are not regular so with this I can set my washing machine to wash our laundry before I come home and it is ready to be dried when I get home then.
WHAT I THINK
I have had my washing machine for a year and I am happy with it. I do not think the washing machine is large enough for my family because I have got 3 children and a 6kg washing machine is not enough sometimes I have to make 2 loads of washing instead of doing it all in one go. I think I will replace this washing machine with a larger one next year because even though it is a very good washing machine it is not big enough for me.
There is a button where you can press it to stop the washing machine from spinning, that is good for jumpers and items like that that could go out of shape if they have to go on a harsh spin. I use that quite a lot because I wear a lot of delicate jumpers at this time of year and so do my children so I would like to keep them safe for as long as possible.
There is no display on this washing machine but some lights come on to tell you how far along the program is and if your clothes are being washed, spun or rinsed at any time. It is very easy to set your program using the dial and all of the programs and settings are marked clear around the dial. A standard wash takes about 80 minutes but that time can be longer if you select a different or more intense program, or the quick wash can wash a small amount of laundry in only 30 minutes.
My clothing is always very clean when I have washed it in my Beko washing machine, sometimes our laundry gets stained but that is not the fault of the machine and when that happens I would blame my detergent or think that the stain was just too tough I think. I have not ever had anything have damage when I have washed it in this washing machine and when I take my clothes out after the spin has finished they are not very wet so dry quickly on the washing line. The spin speed is 1200 and I think that is quite low but I think it is effective for my laundry and would not need a higher spin speed.
I think this washing machine is noisy and it rattles sometimes also. The feet are adjustable so I asked my husband to move them so that they were level but that has not made very much difference and it still makes a lot of noise when it is spinning but does not rattle so much now and does not make me think it is going to move across my kitchen floor.
This washing machine from Beko costs about £200 and I think that is very cheap for a good quality washing machine like this. The only reason I am not happy with it is because I do not think it is big enough for what I need but that is not the fault of the washing machine and I should have checked this before I bought it.
