This is a brilliant washing machine. I managed to get hold of this for about £365, which I generally would say is a lot for a washer; however, I believe that this washer is worth it. With two young children and a sport-loving husband, I need a reliable, efficient washer and this is it. I bought this about a month ago, and it far outshines any other washer I have had before.
When it is in full spin, you can hardly hear it. If you're in another room you don't know it's on. With wash, energy and spin ratings all an A, it is efficient as well as being economical.
I love the digital feature, which tells you how long you have until the cycle ends. You can swap and change your spin and the heat, so you could have it on a 1600 spin but only do it at a 30-degree wash. It's a massive drum as well, at 8kg so I find myself washing a lot less than I was before. In addition, the clothes come out a lot dryer than any washer I have previously owned, meaning less drying time.
The washer also has a child lock feature, which is invaluable to me, as I have a 14 month old daughter who loves pressing buttons and is constantly turning my dryer on and off! However, with this machine, she can't change the wash or turn it off, etc, as you have to hold the child lock button down for a few seconds before you can turn the feature off. Definitely handy for any family with young children.
The washer also has settings such as Bed and Bath, which has a higher temperature and a faster spin, it has a silk wash and it has quick wash which is done in 30 minutes.
Although you are spending a little more on the washer, this is a very economical product, and if and when I need to replace this washer, I would definitely consider this model again.
