      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Very good value

      background

      With 7 people living in the household we needed a reliable washing machine (having fallen foul of cheaper machines before) with a large load capacity and a reasonably high spin speed.

      After a fair amount of research this machine appeared to fit the bill. At the risk of being repetitive (we have been lucky with many recent purchases) it was a very good move.

      Description

      Our model is white (silver also available). It is of standard (under the counter) size. Connections required are a power supply and plumbing - however hoses are easily fixed and secured.

      Top left of the machine is the detergent and conditioner trays, in the middle is the wash selection dial (more on that later) and on the right a digital display showing wash time and allowing temperature change and spin cycle change.

      The door is opened by a catch towards the top of the door and is robust i notable compared to some models in the hinge department.

      Use

      In reality the machine is simple.

      Detergent and conditioner is added in the tray

      The wash cycle is selected and the start button pushed. The temperature and spin speed can be selected individually for each via the display panel. The following cycles are offered:

      Rapid ( 15, 30 or 45 minute selected via the digital display)
      Sports
      59 minute wash
      Woollens
      Cottons
      colours
      synthetics
      delicates

      What I have noticed is that all of the specialist cycles take a very long time - up to 3 hours on the sports wash - this is the only downside I have found, meaning that an A+ energy rating is fine, but you are using more power to run the machine for longer! As a result, unless we are specifically washing something that needs a specialist wash we usually use the 59 minute wash set to 30 or 40 degrees - everything comes out clean!

      The machine is quiet in operation, far more so than previous models we have owned.

      Recommendation

      Overall I have nothing but praise for this machine. It is reliable, has a large load capacity and good spin speeds. Most of all, clothes come out clean. I don't think you can find much better value - we paid £350 for it a year ago, I believe offers can now be as low as £299.

      The only reason this is not a 5 star review is due to the energy impact of some very long washes - though this can be avoided by selecting your wash cycle carefully.

      Thanks for reading
