What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Could have been so much better This machine was a disappointment. I specifically looked around for a machine that was able to make the best use of my solar hot water heater. This one had H+C water inlets and used the prefix "Eco" liberally, and so it was reasonable to expect that it would use the free hot water available. But, sadly, no. I can only find one wash setting where the hot water inlet is activated, and that is the 60 degree Cotton wash (which is too hot for much of my laundry). If you try to reduce the wash temperature with the "Temp" button, OR select ANY other wash cycle (including "Eco"!!!), the hot inlet no longer is used at all, and the cold wash water is heated only by the internal electric heater. This is frustratingly wasteful for someone like me who wants to reduce my carbon footprint and electricity bill. If you want to make a difference to the environment, look elsewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall great washing machine So quiet I honestly forgot it was on until it sings you a little tune to tell you its done. The wash cycles can be a little long however quick washes are great for when I get home and need a clean dry uniform by the next morning. Overall a great machine!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very quiet but cycles are long Why do none of the reviews say how long the cycles take? The one equivalent to what I used on my previous washing machine, which took less than an hour, takes nearly 3 hours on this one! And the short cycles are supposedly only to be used for much lighter loads eg 2kgs for the Quick 30 or 4 kgs for the Intensive 60! For special programs the time is displayed, but for common ones eg cotton, mix, the time is not displayed until the wash starts.
