Fantastic washer. LOVE the tune.
Brilliant washer. Best I have ever bought. Like most people, I only use the same programmes generally, but this has everything I need: 30 mins, 30 deg temp, fast cotton wash ,longer hot cotton wash, choice of temp and spin speed that I want, so not restricted to what has been programmed in by the manufacturer. Good large size wash, spin speed very efficient. WHY HAS THIS NOW BEEN DISCONTINUED???? Was going to advise my daughter to get one, but seems is no longer available. Such a shame! Just LOVE the little tune at the end of programme, then switches itself off. Makes me smile; makes my husband raise his eyebrows! Would def recommend, IF you can get hold of one now.

I had my previous washer for 21 years so wanted a robust replacement. This machine had excellent reviews and it has so far proved as good as suggested.
I liked the idea of the direct drive motor and it is indeed as quiet and smooth operating as I hoped, and also has a 10 year guarantee.
Several reviewers complained of the noise when filling or pumping out, but I have not found this to be a problem. Compared with my previous 1300rpm spin machine which sounded as if taking off into space orbit, this machine is delightfully quiet and you hardy notice that is on.
Additionally and most importantly, the washing comes out noticeably cleaner than with my previous machine and well rinsed so that there is no soap residue.
The machine takes a larger load than previously and has a large door which is good for bigger items, so that I hope now to be able to accommodate a double duvet inside. Having the larger capacity has enabled me to cut down on my number of wash loads, yet the machine fits easily within the same space as my previous 5kg machine. It looks very smart.
My previous machine filled from hot and cold, so water heating now lengthens the wash cycle, but there now seem to be few machines taking a hot fill because of environmental considerations. Much of our washing is not heavily soiled and I find the shorter 'cotton quick' cycle' seems to wash very adequately without taking an undue length of time.
The controls are very clear and simple to operate.
All round I am delighted with this purchase which seems to be living up to expectations.

Efficient, well built, quiet machine
After 1 month:
it runs quietly,
washes efficiently (the sensing of load size for the cotton wash is a plus)
The high speed spin gets the clothes drier
the features are fine for us.
