We have had this washing machine for just over a year and a half and it's definitely one that I would recommend buying. It is a freestanding washing machine with a pretty generous 9 kg wash load - it is therefore quite ideal for larger families, but also for everyone else. There are lots of good things about it, which include:
- It has an A+ rating for energy efficiency and costs around £80 if you use it once a day (like my family), and only £33 if you use it three times a week - for a year. This makes it excellent value for money
- There is the option of an express 14 minute wash (refresh cycle) which is perfect if you're in a hurry or are impatient (what, no, I'm not impatient, pshtt..)
- It has a Baby and Toddler clothing programme which is kinder towards clothes for your little ones
- In accordance with its energy efficiency rating it also has an eco-clean option which saves water and energy with more gentle and slower wash
- The washing machine makes it easier to wash duvets as well because of its duvet wash option
- It tells you how long there is left until the end of the current cycle
- You can delay the time the washing machine starts, i.e., you can time it so that it starts in the night (the rate of electricity can be cheaper around this time and you'll thus save more money)
- It has a spin efficiency of A which again saves money and time as more water is extracted from your clothing, therefore it'll need less time to air dry or less time in a tumble dryer
- We think it's a quiet machine (machines which have a noise level of under 60 decibels) - of course, if you have a loud family, this is a god send
- The 39 minute every day wash is an excellent option and for a wash which consists of 9kg clothes, it's a quick option (but this is at a 30 degree wash, at 40 degrees it is 50 minutes)
- The buttons are easy to use and everything is set out clearly, the dial for the temperature is also smooth to turn
- It looks good in a monochrome kitchen and is easy to clean
- Even my father uses it.
A few of the things you may wish to consider:
- It's a pretty heavy machine,and is thus difficult to move around
- The quick cycle is a bit louder than the other options
- More spin equals more vibration so if you have this under a worktop it will inevitably shake things
- Sometimes the dial changes because of the vibrations.
Overall, the Beko washing machine is excellent value for money. We've not incurred a problem with this as of yet and my mother loves the amount of clothing it'll wash in one go.
I got this washing machine last year after mine broke and im really impressed with it.
i particularly like how it has a setting for baby and toddler clothes that washes at 90 degree's which is great for mothers that use cloth nappies. I also like and use alot the time saver mode which washes at 30 and with this mode you dont have to use as much washing powder so save you a bit of money there to. the best thing about the machine is the fact no matter what setting you have it on you can change the heat at what it washes at with the click of a botton and the high speed spin ensures you dont have to waste loads of money using the tumble dryer. it has a large 7kg drum and i can fit my full bed set in there or even my 90 drop curtains 1 at time and with the high speed spin i just hang them back up and let them dry with the window open makes a normally annoying job really easy and simple
