Good Value Washing Machine
Member Name: Gtiracer
Advantages: Not too expensive, 7KG load, half hour fast wash, lots of settings
Disadvantages: Can be noisy on full spin, potential mould pocket
Got this washing machine through Currys and had it around about 3 months now, Got to say I'm pleased overall with its performance. Its got a fantastic Half hour setting for a quick wash and 10 other presets for different wash types for different materials and lengths.
However I wouldn't personally recommend the quick wash for anything other than day to day clothes because If you have something that's been sitting around for a while and smelling musty, you'll want to put it on a 'proper' wash to clean it through properly which will take just over 2 hours.
Our machine says it will take a 7Kg load for some reason the spec says 6kg so maybe they changed that slightly, Im not sure but it looks identical to the Picture they have put up. ours has also a 1400 speed spin and on full whack it does get pretty noisy enough for us to turn up the TV anyway.
The 7KG wash drum does us fine, would be nice for a bigger one but that's just luxury, we are a family of 4 and does us well. Seems quite economic to run, I'm sure in Currys it was A or A+ efficiency rating so no problems there.
No other problems to report about it, just the noise factor could get irritating if you have more than one wash to do in one night, probably best to go out while its on during the day but I wouldn't risk putting ours on overnight at the risk of waking the kids or next doors kids up.
Has a little pocket which could be a potential mould/gunk pit as it gets older, I will be making sure it goes on a 90 degree wash every now and then and leaving the door open to prevent this happening. Ours cost £250 I think back in November 09
Summary: If you can't afford better definately get this one
