Advantages: Good results, and choice of programmes and settings
Disadvantages: Have to manually change dispenser draw from powder to liquid dispensing
I bought this machine just over a month ago from Comet. It has 4 Wash option selections - Economy Wash, Super Rinse, Time Saver, and Rinse Hold, and 10 Wash programmes. In addition there are useful features such as a door lock indicator,and Variable spin speed control - from 400 to 1200 or no spin. Apart from an initial accident where colours ran (due to me setting the wash temperature dial incorrectly to the White Cotton 95 degree wash) it has performed well. The dispenser draw has a changeable indicator that you have to change depending on if you use Powder or Liquid. There is one conflicting thing in that it says in the instruction manual not to dispense tablets from the dispenser drawer and to refer to detergent manufacturer's instructions - yet the instructions that come with my Ariel tablets - actually tell you to put them in the dispenser (not in a dosing ball)!!! The machine can be noisy during it's spin cycle (particularly on the 1200 setting), and the on/off button takes a bit of getting use to. But compared to my previous machine, an Electrolux, it is quicker, more efficient, and the results seem better.
