Excellent Family Washing Machine
Member Name: webownage
Advantages: Quick, Easy To Use, Loads of choices for cycles
Disadvantages: Display plays up
I bought this machine for my new house back in 2008 like a lot of the other things that I have reviewed. The machine is great, no faults as of yet, the only problem that we have had so far is that the display with washing time remaining plays up which can get annoying but just give it a little hit with your fist and its back to normal which is great.
This washing machine is like any other kitchen appliance, it is white, with a tray for soap powder and fabric softener, and there is a knob which you turn to the setting you would like for your washing. Listed below is the time for each function the machine does.
* 1 White prewash - 2 hours 35 mins
* 2 White cotton - 2 hours 30 mins
* 3 Colour Cotton - 1 hour 25 mins
* 4 Easy care - 1 hour 12 mins
* 5 Wool - 50 mins
* 6 Silk/Curtains - 45 mins
* 7 Flash Clean - 1 hour
* 8 Flash colours - 50 minutes
* 9 flash nylon - 40 mins
* 10 Daily - 30 minutes
* 11 Special shoes 50 mins
* 12 special sport - 1 hour
* Rinse - 30 minutes
* Spin - 10 minutes
* Drain - 2 minutes
The machine also has Easy Iron, Extra Rinse, and Stain Removal functions.
This machine takes a 7 KG load which is great if you do a lot of washing ie family home. The machine washes the clothes to the same cleanliness whether or not you use the full 7 KG or whether you only put a little amount of clothes in.
The screen on the washing machine is not the best; in fact it is very basic. I personally have problems with the screen which on my machine, it goes all distorted and flashes which is unreadable, you have physically got to hit it with your fist for the screen to return to normal.
This machine as a very powerful spin cycle, it is fairly noisy, you can hear it while you are up the stairs, if there is anything on or in the sink you will hear it rattle about the same with stuff on the work to round about the machines location.
The machine is still in very good condition, I have been using it since mid 2008 which is about 3 years ago to when I am writing this review. I am happy with the build, and I am happy with how well this machine operates, you obviously have the soap powder tray having clumps of solid powder which as missed the tray and hardened over time, this is removed easily with a knife.
The price for this machine is fairly cheap, although when I purchased it was a bit more expensive. I truly think you will get value for money if you are to purchase this machine, it operates well and I have had no problems after 3 years of family usage.
I have no hesitation in recommending this machine to families, single occupant's elderly, in fact I recommend this machine to anyone, I have happy with it, and I think it does a great job!
Thanks for reading! I hope this has been of interest to you and has helped assist you in your decision.
Summary: Great machine, value for money, would purchase again!
