Bought this machine last month after mine finally packed in. I was on a budget but needed a good machine that could keep up with the amount of washing I do with a busy and messy family. I've found it absolutely brilliant and the screen says the amount of time left which, although seemed a bit pointless when I bought it, has proved a lot more useful than I originally thought. The preset washes are useful but I tend to use the 'empty preset' to design & save my own. You can also change the temperature of a preset which is really useful as the presets are really quite high. It also has a trainer wash which has really impressed my partner. It is slightly annoying that you can't just do a spin but have to rinse and spin, but it's not the biggest problem of my life ! !
I used to rent a flat with this washing machine already there when I moved in and in the 2 years we lived there I never had a problem, so when we moved into our own house I decided to stick with the reliable and buy the same machine. It cost about £230 and is good value. It is very straight forward to use, has all the functions you need but without being over complicated. You can change the temperature to what you want, I wash everything at 30 degrees and it washes really well. It also has a delay timer so I set ours for the middle of the night so that we can use it when the electricity is cheap rate. The drum size is good, takes a full family load. We have now had this machine for 2 years and again not a problem so far (touch wood). Definitely recommend.
