When I bought this washing machine, I thought for the money I was paying that it would be a standard basic washing machine. It was not at all. I have now come to love it! Thanks to the quick wash option a can save a lot of money on the electricity bill and still wash the same amount of clothes and more, than with my old washing machine. The quick wash is also just as good as the more powerful options and I can't tell a difference in the standard the clothes come out at. I find it works best with Ariel washing pouches but it does work well with anything really.
The outside of the washing machine is what appealed to me first when I was looking to buy it. The digital screen made it look modern and easy to use. Also I preferred it as I was looking for a white washing machine to match my kitchen. When I was looking, I also noticed the large amount of option the washing machine has. There are 12 altogether: cottons, intensive, baby and toddler clothing, a class 40 degrees, daily quick, dark care, spin and drain, rinse, hand wash, woollens, mixed fabrics and synthetic. I find all of these very useful and especially the hand wash option for clothes that are not meant to be washed in the washing machine. There are also another 4 main options which I have never really used as I don't see the point of them apart from the anti-crease option. These are pre-wash, quick wash, extra rinse and anti-crease. They can be useful for certain things but I can manage fine without them.
I think compared to other washing machines, this one washes quite quick at just 39 minutes on the daily quick at 30 degrees. It can take longer going up by ten minutes by every ten degrees but it is still a quick washing, washing machine. It's very easy to use and easy to select the amount of time you would like the wash to be on for as it is all made very clear on the digital screen and the buttons are all obvious. I did not need to use a manual at all when I was setting it up although it did come with one in case. I rate it 10/10 for easy use.
==would I recommend buying this==
I wold definitely recommend you buy this as it is a very well made product that is good quality and is extremely easy to use. It comes at a great price of £239 from Comet without any offers on it. I was very pleased with this purchase and I imagine I will not be getting a new washing machine for a few years yet. If you are looking for a good washing machine for a great price then this is the one for you!
As most people with busy, chaotic lifestyles know washing can be the Bain of your life. Just to give you an idea of how much washing I get through we have three dogs a baby and a husband. There is everything from the dogs bedding, to the daily toddler wash, to hubbies white shirts and t - shirts every day! It's a lot! We had our last Beko for several years and it was a real workhorse, it was on for most of the day, every day. Unfortunately the door seal kept splitting and we eventually decided its life was at an end.
I have to say the thought of getting a new washing machine is actually quite daunting as they are a big cost and sometimes these new modern versions don't work as well. This washing machine cost us £289.00 which was a £150.00 off the original price. We shop at Littlewoods as we have an account with them. I think if you shopped around you would find this a little cheaper as Littlewoods in my opinion does seem rather expensive.
It's easy to install, just remember to take off the locking devices that keep the drum in place and read the easy start manual. The best feature buy a mile is the 15 minute quick wash, this is great for a quick freshen up of items of clothing that are not soiled. I tend to use this for the babies outer jumpers and jackets as they never get really dirty. Anything like bedding, vests, underwear (except bras with wires) can go on the toddler and baby wash at 90 it's an excellent wash albeit does take around two and a half hours to complete. The other items of clothing go on a 39 minute economy wash, it's great and has a good spin speed also.
The programmes are so varied and the computerised screen allows you to view all the settings and counts down the time so you know when the wash will be finished. It also allows you to change manually the spin speed and the temperature of the wash, which is an excellent added feature.
The only downside which we have still not figured out is the actual lid of the washing machine is not fixed on properly; it moves about and can actually be lifted up. It is not at all suitable to free stand and must be under or behind the work surface or a cupboard door. You can actually see inside the workings of the machine. I still have not heard back from the manufacturers about this and can't seem to see anything in the troubleshooting or manual guide provided.
Great machine, loads of features, but must be secured in properly.
After buying a new dryer recently, I was after a new washing machine to go with it. My old washing machine was over five years old (probably closer to ten, we inherited it when we bought our house), and had only three temperature options and a couple of programme settings, so it was definitely time to upgrade.
I did a lot of research before deciding on a washing machine, as I wanted one with plenty of features and had a good energy rating, but wasn't too expensive. The Beko WME7267 was one of about three washing machines that met my requirements, and ended up being the cheapest and having the highest capacity. The price for this machine varies wildly, and can be as much as £350 for the silver model. I paid £250 for my silver version from Argos, which also offers a collect/recycling service for your old machine for just £7. Don't forget to look for cashback deals and free delivery codes to make it cheaper as well!
The Beko WME7267 is a front-loading washing machine which holds up to 7kg of clothes, features a range of different programmes, and is fitted with a child lock. The machine's door automatically locks once a cycle is started, and unlocks itself a few seconds after they cycle fully finishes. It uses 1.19kWh and 52 litres of water per cycle.
* Estimated annual energy consumption: 238kW/year
* Estimated annual water consumption: 10400litres/year
* Cold water fill
* Energy efficiency rating A+
* Washing performance A
* Spinning performance A
The energy rating was a big factor for me in determining which washing machine to go for as I prefer to buy products which are going to be inexpensive to run, and obviously they have environmental benefits as well.
7kg is a pretty high capacity, and also means we run the washing machine less frequently. If you're looking for a dryer to go alongside this machine, then I recommend the 7kg Whirlpool AWZ8577, which is also a great buy. You can check out my review on that here: http://dooyoo.co.uk/tumble-dryer/whirlpool-awz8577/1521391/
This was pretty easy to do, and just involved connecting the pipes. (Sorry this section is so short, but it's as simple as it sounds!)
Size and Appearance
I think the overall finish could be better as it is quite plastic-y looking. Having said that, general consensus in our house is that it looks pretty good. We got the silver version; this machine is also available in white, which can often be found slightly cheaper. The washing machine is a standard size of 85cm (H) x 59.5cm (W) x 54cm (D), and it fits easily under our kitchen counter, taking up a bit less space than a typical kitchen cabinet would.
Choosing a Programme
The washing machine has a little display screen on the front which tells you things such as: whether a wash has been set to run in the future, whether it's paused, whether it's currently running, what temperature it's at, whether it's on an economy setting, what speed it's been set at and so on. It's extremely comprehensive and tells you everything you need to know; plus it's easy to work out without needing to remember specific symbols or referring to the manual every five minutes.
When you choose a setting the details automatically come up on the screen. You can adjust the temperature, spin and a few other options as you wish, but bear in mind that not all options are available within a particular programme. Therefore you may be better off entering details manually if you want a specific temperature or a 1600RPM spin. There are also options for a pre-wash cycle and reduced creasing, which are handy particularly if (like me) you don't like ironing!
The standard programmes are: Cotton, Synthetic, Woollens.
The other programmes are: Baby & Toddler Clothing, Hand Wash, Daily Quick, A Class 40 (which is longer than a typical 40 degree wash), Dark Care, Mixed Fabrics and Intensive.
To select a programme, you simply turn the dial to the marked text, make any adjustments you want, and then hit Start. Most programmes take between 1 hour 40 mins and 2 hours, apart from Daily Quick which takes between 34 and 39 minutes depending on your other settings. Pre-washes will add to that time.
You can also set a programme to run up to 24 hours in the future, which is useful if you want your machine to run whilst you're out or you're on an energy tariff that's cheaper for night use. The first time you press the button it gives you the option of starting the machine in half an hour's time; after that it increases by hourly increments. You then press Start as normal; nothing will happen until the time set, but the information remains on the screen.
As the machine is running, the display will show you how much time it has left to run in hours and minutes. I know this is a pretty typical feature for a washing machine, but I've found it extremely useful as my old washing machine didn't have this and guesswork was required. Not ideal when you're living in a shared house!
The washing machine has a pull-out drawer divided into three sections. The left hand side section is where regular detergent goes for the main wash. The middle section is for softener, and the right hand side is for detergent for pre-wash. I have to say that I don't really use the pre-wash aspect of cycles because I don't think it's necessary. Even on the 39 minute Quick Wash cycle, my clothes come out thoroughly clean, which I'm pretty impressed by. I have to say that adding detergent is the least intuitive part of using the machine and I had to look up which part of the drawer to put it in. So if someone else is using your machine, you'll need to tell them which section the detergent goes in, or else leave the manual on the right page somewhere nearby!
Half Loads and Automatic Adjustment
One thing I love about this machine is that it automatically adjusts to the load of clothes you have in there. So if there are times when you don't have a full load of clothes to put in but desperately need something clean, you don't have to worry about wasting water and energy as the machine will weigh your clothes and adjust automatically.
This washing machine isn't particularly quiet, although if you can put it in a room where you can just shut the door on it then it won't bother you. You can just about listen to the TV in the same room if you turn it up quite a lot!
You can find the manual for this washing machine here: http://www.beko.co.uk/manuals/wme7267.pdf
A paper copy also comes with the machine, and it's very comprehensive, explaining everything from how the plug should be replaced to how heavy you can expect certain items of clothing to be, to how much energy is used for each specific cycle. However, the one thing I needed to look up was left out - whether or not you can put solid washing tablets in the drawer (my housemate has had problems with them not dissolving fully in the drawer and leaving white powder all over her clothes). As the washing machine manual doesn't have any information about using solid tablets I can't say whether this is a fault or tablets aren't supposed to be put in the drawer. I use liquid and have never had a problem.
After getting this washing machine a month or two ago, we've had a couple of minor issues with it. Firstly, as I mentioned above, it's not a great idea to put washing tablets in the drawers. Secondly, I ran a standard wash a couple of days ago that resulted in the machine making some extremely strange and very worrying noises! However, this has been a one-off so far, so I'll update this review with further information if there are any developments.
In terms of washing clothes, this machine definitely does the job. My clothes come out smelling of detergent, which they didn't with my old machine! I've also found that clothes feel a lot nicer and come out a lot drier than my old machine. The anti-crease setting is great for clothes that seem to crease the second you look at them, and has also given me a great excuse not to iron. I own a lot of black clothes, so the Dark Care option is great, and Daily Quick is good for when we all want to use the machine on the same day, or for washing work clothes that have been left to the last minute. The only programme I can't see myself having a use for is the Baby & Toddler one, although it may be worth trying for our pet-related fabrics that could do with an extra hygienic blast.
It holds a good amount of clothes, and whilst the door could be a bit bigger, this hasn't really been a problem and you shouldn't have too much difficulty fitting even a duvet inside. I would like a bit more flexibility when selecting a programme (for example I didn't realise that the 1600 spin rating only applies to a couple of programmes), but overall this is a great machine and I'm really happy I bought it.
After having owned Indesit and Hotpoint washing machines, which are incidentally both from the same company, I felt badly let down, both by the products and the customer services of the company. I would expect a washing machine to last longer than 4 years, but that doesn't seem to be the case anyymore! I had already bought a Beko Fridge/freezer about 18 months ago, (after having been let down once again by Indesit) and found it to be excellent, so I decided to buy a Beko washing machine. I have only owned it for about five weeks now, but I am very impressed by its efficiency. I hope it will last longer than my last two afore-mentioned ones!!
The Beko WME7267 is a large capacity machine which is ideal if you have a large family or have frequent washing needs as I do, with three swimmers in the house. I believe you can fit a duvet in the machine but I have yet to try this. There are several different programmes, a few of which I have yet to use. I am not a great fan of lots of programmes and have usually only had the necessity for a quick wash and a hotter wash. However the extra programmes on this machine are not just the usual token programmes for selling purposes, and not much use to anyone. There are several genuinely useful cycles such as 'Rinse and Spin', 'Dark Care', 'Hand Wash', 'Baby and Toddler', 'Intensive', Woollens, and best of all 'Daily Wash' which is the shortest programme at 39 mins for 30c wash or 34 mins for cold wash, and covers most ordinary items.
The 1600 spin speed is great as your washing comes out well spun and takes much less time to dry. You can vary the spin speed for different items. The digital timer is a boon, as it counts down the time left on your wash and shows you which stage your washing is at. There is also a timer delay, so that you can set your washing to start whenever you want. There is not much that has been left out on this machine, except maybe one thing, half load. But considering all the other features, this is hardly worth mentioning. A big plus, is that it is very quiet too! As you can see, I am more than pleased with this machine, and would recommend it to anyone, whatever your family needs. You can't go wrong with this. Well done for such a great product Beko, well worth the £240 from Iguana Direct.
Over the Christmas holiday our old washing machine was starting to break down. The dials would keep flashing when you tried to turn it on and if you wanted to close the door you had to give it a heavy shove. I'm not sure what the name of this washing machine was, all I know is it was silver. I'm no expert on washing machines but I will try my best to use some technical terms in this review.
On Christmas Eve- Eve, our old washing machine finally packed up. Since the next day was Christmas Eve we wanted to be visiting family and not going around the shops looking for a new washing machine. So we tried to save on washing until Boxing Day when my mum and dad went out that morning to buy us a new one. If you ask me it was probably the best time of year for a washing machine to break down - right when the sales are starting - so we could find a great deal. It looked like they had found a great deal because when they came back they had bought a new washing machine and a dryer as well. This is the washing machine they came back with.
The washing machine we have is white in colour. It is a front loading washing machine so the door is on the front. It is freestanding which means it isn't built in to your home and you are able to move it to where you want it. The dials and controls are at the top above the door and there is an orange lit up screen which tells you how long until the load finishes which is really handy. The shape is just the average rectangular shape of a washing machine (I've never seen a washing machine which isn't) and it is just the average washing machine size really. The wash load is 7Kg so it is perfect for family use as you can fit a lot of clothes in it, a lot more than our last washing machine.
Although the design is quite simple I really like it and would rate it 5/5 because it is just how I would want a washing machine to look. I like how it looks in the kitchen and I think it looks quite stylish.
Ease of Use
I find the washing machine simple to use. The controls are clear and easy to choose from. For a daily wash this is all I had to do this morning: Load the clothes in, fill the little tub with Persil, push it to the back of the clothes, then make sure the dial is on Daily wash and then press start. Then the screen tells you how long it will be until the load finishes which is really handy as you can decide what to do in the time and not have to wait around wondering when it will finish as we did with our last one. For ease of use I rate this washing machine as 5/5.
The noise isn't too loud but it's not exactly silent, either. When we first got it we were all sitting in the kitchen eating and we were saying to each other, "wow, that washing machine's really quiet" but then just as we said that it kicked in and really got going and started to make shaky loud noise. That was the first time we used it and my dad adjusted its position on the ground so it is a bit quieter now. When it's at its loudest you can't hear the TV so well over it but it isn't as bad for noise as our last one was. For noise I rate this washing machine 3/5.
Price and Availability
This is available from all good electrical appliances stores. We got it from an electrics store called Comet where it was about £180 although my mum and dad wouldn't tell me exactly how much they did mention it was a great price for such a good washing machine. If you are in need of a new washing machine this is a great one and what better time to get it than in the January sales.
On Comet.co.uk and in Sainsburys this washing machine is £189.99, while from Next domestic appliances it costs £294.99. I know where I'd choose to get it from!
So far this washing machine has been great for us; it's the perfect family washing machine. The 7Kg wash load means you can fit loads more clothes in it, the on screen timer is really handy as you know how long it will be until the load finishes and the noise isn't too loud - although it's not silent it's not awful. The appearance is quite stylish and overall I would recommend this washing machine to anyone looking for a new one. Some may think the price is expensive but although I'm not an expert on washing machines I can see that this is a really good one.
