Having recently made my kitchen bigger by removing the wall separating it from the utility room I realised just how noisy our old washing machine was.
For open plan living I would highly recommend this washing machine. I was initially drawn to it for it's energy efficient features - the eco-bubble settings allow you to get more efficiency out of your washing detergent - thus allowing you to wash on lower temperatures - which is cheaper on your home energy bills and better for the environment.
I have never come across such a quiet washing machine - even on the fastest part of the spin cycle you would hardly know it was on - it is certainly possible to continue a normal volume conversation around the kitchen table while the washing machine is busy doing it's stuff in the same room.
The spin speed is good, and you can choose your speed according to the type of fabrics you are washing.
I also find the quick everyday wash cycle to be very useful for giving school uniforms and sports gear a quick freshen up in the evening.
The controls are clear and easy to use - with lots of choices available to customise your wash for your own particular preferences - for example I like to wash towels on a high temperature wash and I can choose to add an extra rinse and more intensity to the wash if I want to (although it does extend the time of the wash quite a bit). There is a time countdown so you can easily see how much longer the cycle has to go - very useful if you are hanging around wondering if there's time to do another job while you are waiting for it to finish.
The child lock is a very useful feature in our house too - the big central dial is quite tempting for little fingers to fiddle with - so the child lock gives peace of mind that they aren't changing your delicates wash to a hot boil!!
This is the best washing machine EVER!!
This washing machine is so quite. You can choose if you want it to beep when the wash has finished, which i do, but even better!! It switches itself off to save electric.
I customize my own wash depending on the size of my load. You choose the temperature, how much water you want to go in and how fast the spin. (You can add your customized washes to your favorites) I always wash on Eco bubble (It uses 30% less energy than an A rated washer and has specially designed programmes which have the same results as washing in hot water but by using a 15°C temperature so this saves on heating and offers more care for fabrics. The bubble technology dissolves detergent into the water and then injects air, producing a soapy foam cushion that begins to appear in the drum seconds after the normal cycle starts. The detergent is so thoroughly dissolved into the water, it does not need as much hot water to aid the cleaning and penetrates deeper into clothes up to four times faster than conventional washers.) It is very easy to use and fits lots of clothes in (We are a family of four).
I like the digital numbers and it tells you how long the wash is going to be. The chrome knob is lovely and stylish and is easy to turn to pick a wash, you know which was you have selected as it lights up, which is fab! Also you can pause the wash if you choose to do so. You can set a wash at a specific time in case you are out and you want it to be ready when you get back home.
The spin dries the garments much more, so it is even quicker to dry, you can also opt for just a spin wash after your normal wash to dry the garments even more!
There are many types of washes to choose from, there is a wash for everything!! Even outdoor. The hand wash option is great for hand wash only garments! Saves you hand washing them you just pop them in and it does the job!
This washing machine looks good and is well worth the money.
The only downside is that it sticks out a little bit (underneath the work surface) compared to other washing machines.
This washing machine is great for families, it has a child lock on, which you activate by the push of two buttons, so if the child presses any buttons, it will not affect the wash :-)
