I had one of these, it wasn't half bad. Have since got a 1600 spin machine and can notice a huge difference in drying time! I can hang clothes over radiators with heating off and they're dry in 24hrs. If you can afford a better spin machine it's well worth it. :)

Its a good machine for the price!!!

There was so many in our little house when I was a child that when my Mum hung our clothes up to dry there was a rainbow in the hall .............................. BEKO's past isn't good.

I would agree with you about the past but Which magazine has them much more reliable these days across their range

Small Heath Argos, in a retail park next to a B&M bargains and a Next.

Also argos do not repair these. So if it has a major fault it gets replaced. Good deal.

Beko are actually very reliable generally. Actually scored higher than Miele for dishwasher reliability. But as you can see from the Which report below performance wasn't as good but a 5 star rating for reliability.

http://oi60.tinypic.com/118n4mo.jpg

Beko probably represents the very best in value at the moment. That reliability rating will be for budget washing machines too because thats all they really make where as companies like Bosch make some fairly poor entry level washing machines but the much higher quality of their expensive models gives them a good average figure.

I buy Beko's and Indesit's for the tenants and can't complain the fact that on average these machines last 7-8 years which isn't bad for a sub £200 machine but then again the tenants we have are civilised humans not uni students.
#24
Can't find any info on the warranty... it should be mandatory by law for sellers (be they online or stores) to clearly display the warranty length and conditions.

Inferior to many other brands. This machine at this price is a false economy. Why buy this when I can have a Miele that will outlast it by a factor of twenty at a cost of only six or seven times the value of this Beko...

good input ...it's nice to see valuable insightful comments ..its a minefield looking for a reliable machine when ur on a budget too :-((

recently had beko, hor ribble customer service experience couldn't get the replacement part for a 11 month old model. replaced the whole thing.

Good deal, naff company. everyone's experience's and tastes vary I suppose
#28
You people who talk nonsense about Beko ain't got one. I had one of their fridge freezers which lasted 12 years and only replaced because needed a bigger one. The old one never stopped once.

Those sort of statements are never true. As you can see from the Which figures they are both at similar reliability levels and the Beko will likely last 7-8 years and a factor of 20 would be 160 years. Miele is the false economy, hugely more expensive with only marginal reliability difference. More importantly Miele repairs are ridiculously expensive. Beko consistantly outperform most other brands for reliabilitiy with Miele and Bosch/Siemens averaging a slightly higher figure. Certainly Beko are better than the Whirlpool/Indesit/Hotpoint group and the Candy/Hoover or Electrolux/AEG/Zanussi/John Lewis models.

Personally I would always get a washing machine with a 5 year parts and labour guarantee included or as a low cost addition. Washing machines are mechanical devices and even the best models have a close to 10% failure rate and sods law yours may be the one that fails. Even the basic Miele washing machines only have a 2 year guarantee unless there is an extended guarantee promotion on. After 2 years such a washing machine could fail and repair may not make economic sense.

I have previously had a beko machine and had no issues. Better than my current indesit. I also have had a beko fridge freezer for the past 7 years which is working fine still and recently bought a beko oven. Great value brand and reliable.

Are you suggesting this specific model lasts eight years? If so, kindly prove it.

Miele's are not false economies. They have a ten year warranty as standard and mine is coming up to 22 years in service, not out.

Unfortunately Miele no longer offer standard 10 year warranty on their products it's standard 2 years with optional 8 years for additional payment which works out more than a budget washing machine. We live in a "throwaway society" and our expectations of products lasting a good length of time is no longer what it used to be as people usually replace some household products every 5 years or so. We put more emphasis on other factors like features, looks and keeping up with the Jones than on products lasting a good length of time.

First MIele I looked at;

http://www.coopelectricalshop.co.uk/Miele-WDA100-7Kg-1400-Spin-Washing-Machine-in-White/id-MIE-WSH-WDA100-W?gclid=CM26zf7fyMUCFernwgod614ANw&gclsrc=aw.ds

2 year parts and labour guarantee.

Don't confuse Miele of yesteryear with Miele of today. It's another brand trading on reputation. Still good but there was a time when Miele quality was legendary and nothing came close those times are no more. You can still buy Miele quality of yesteryear but those models are so ridiculously expensive you wouldn't consider it.

Well you would given that it outlasts anything. Why spend £160 on crap when you can spend £1.2k on something that does last for twenty years as mine has?

Fact is this .... 20 years ago a cheap machine would cost £300 .... a Miele would be £900 .... the cheap version could be coaxed to a 8 year life. The Mieles are still going to this day - but need to go another 4 years to make the maths stack up.

Today's Miele is an altogether different animal, built with chinese parts - the same as the Beko is ............... they still cost £900, due to the name only.

However, the Meile today would need to keep going strong for 30+ years to match this Beko which will last 5+ years.

In 30 years the technology will have changed so much and the fashions too that you will wish you had left the Miele on the shelf as the 5 year machines are now £99 each!

Not just for myself buddy but for the majority. Very few are still driving around in a 30 year old VW Golf, running a 20 year old Miele washing machine, logging on the net using a Pentium 75 and making calls using a Nokia 5146 from the 90's etc. Yes they all will still be working today but the fact that people want the latest piece of kit means no one wants something that will last forever.

There are very few brands which stay as leaders in their market for longer than 20 years.

You disregard the quality of the wash let alone the quality of the machine. Cheap machines wash appallingly, destroying clothes at the same time....
