any comments on how good this is? thinking of getting one myself

Got mine yesterday, delivery was great, and other one was taken as well. Noticed that when using my previous pipe there was a slight leak, changed to the one supplied and all gone. The machine itself looks great, has lots of programs for all sorts of things, I think reading reviews the only program it's really missing is a silk one. It's practically silent too which is great.

One thing though, when calling to register I was offered to extend the warranty to include accidental/piece of mind for three years. They say that a call out where something considered an accident is to blame (buttons/tissue etc) then you would have to pay the call out charge of £135. The accident cover wavered this, £3.35 a month for 36 months, whilst that's not a lot of money I wanted to speak with my partner about it, told him I would let them know and he became a little pushy saying I had to decide on the call as they couldn't process it after and that I had a month to cancel if I accepted it. Told him not to bother and then suddenly he could give me 16 months free, so I took that instead.

Looks like they now have the 10KG drum model as well, code still working.

Love mine. Got it delivered last week, constant updates about when/what time it would be delivered and they took the old one away no problem. It looks really good, plenty of programs, 1400 spin, decent drum size and has done a fine job so far. Hopefully it's a keeper.

Great! Just ordered thanks
Cheers ... mine us on last legs and repair chap said it was not worth fixing ... sounded like bricks bouncing in it on a spin cycle. Paid just over 250 for a whirlpool one delivered .. old one taken away and new one installed. Only £12 to get hooked up with discount. .. easy life. got to wait a week for delivery though .. hope old one hangs on until then

In summary, for domestic appliances induction motors are more unreliable, cannot be serviced whatsoever, and are far, far more expensive to replace.


I don't think that's true of most domestic appliances, induction motors are commonly used to drive the main circulation pumps of dishwashers, fridge and freezer compressors, and as tumble dryer motors, where variable speed control is not required. Simple cap start/run induction motors used in single phase machinery are virtually bomb-proof too. We've got a 1950/60s pillar drill with its original 1/8 hp induction motor still going strong with just a new pair of silicone insulated fly leads to the field coils and a new start capacitor, but only because the 50s rubber insulation on both had become highly conductive.

I gather that washing machine motors are increasingly likely to use permanent magnets instead of induction for even greater efficiency.

I think the build and design quality of the appliance is a much bigger factor, than its type of motor. I'd probably avoid a direct drive washing machine, but only because the position of the motor means their tubs have to be shorter for the same depth of machine.

Yes, I understand how these motors work too, and I place a different emphasis on it. If you design for minimum cost then of course you will have more failures - but if you don't, you have a superior product. It's like warning people off LED bulbs because they have a driver circuit in them - buy decent ones and the benefits shine through.

You also seem to be assuming (on an example of one?) that the drive electronics are built into the motor, making it impossible to replace one without the other. Not for my washing machine: see eBay item 181918065486 (first search hit) for a salvaged drive for £40. Seems a stupid thing to make them one unit from a reliability point of view, considering the vibration the electronics will experience.

Three phase supplies won't help you with a washing machine, nor an efficient air conditioner, because they need variable speed drives.
Its definitely the induction motor. My relative has the same motor in his machine and I swapped them out to test - I agree Induction motors are normally very reliable in industry where 3 phase electricity is standard. But consumers don't have 3 phase AC. The induction motor therefore has on board power components to produce the right phase pattern of AC to turn the rotor by rotating magnetic induction. These must have failed. I am a electronic engineer but the onboard electronics are inaccessible without a complex rig to dismantle the induction motor (unlike a DC motor).

The replacement cost of the induction motor is £145. A replacement normal washing machine motor is about £60.

In summary, for domestic appliances induction motors are more unreliable, cannot be serviced whatsoever, and are far, far more expensive to replace.

These manufacturers seem to build the machines to fail shortly after the warranty expires. Brush-less induction motors are very costly to replace, because of the added on board complexity, with many large power electrical components which can go wrong. But more inefficient Old fashioned washing machine motors are very simple components and there is much much less that can go wrong with them.
I think given the very high failure rate of these machines, I would recommend people to look to buy a machine which may not be AAA+ but simple A rated with a non-induction motor.
My 20 month old Beko Eco 8Kg washing machine bought for a bargain £232 failed last week. After investigating I found it was the motor. It, like many ECO AAA+ machines use a induction motor, which have a pile of on board complexity to simulate the needed energy pattern they need to magnetically induce the motor to turn. The motor costs as much as a new machine to replace.
It's a common story that these machines are built to fail and be replaced shortly after the 1 yr warrenty is over.
I will be claiming a repair back from the retailer - legally we have the expectation of a reasonable period of using the goods.
The machines which last 15 years + (like my old one) don't have complex induction motors, they have motors which are simple, rarely fail, and have replaceable carbon brushes to turn the motor which only cost £12 to replace. All repairs apart from the control board and motor on washing machines cost buttons and are easy to do.
Except that an induction motor, if it and its driver circuit are built properly, is so much better than a brushed motor. It is quieter (the brushes are what make the noise), it is more efficient and it doesn't require maintenance (brush replacement). All washing machines have electronic control anyway - it's what enables the motor to run at different speeds.
I disagree. As I said above, induction motors are not only more efficient, but they are quieter, simpler and require no maintenance. While the driver is more complicated, there are also power electronic components in the driver of a conventional motor to control its speed. Are you quite sure that the chief cause of failure is motor/controller failure, or other things like drum bearings?

It's not induction, it it says it's a ceramic hob.
well spotted, it also says induction so I called them to check as mine comes tomorrow and it is definitely induction.
Well first well done for accessing the site, second when it comes can you post some images. We are currently looking for a induction hob but would go for a cooker if it stops the mrs spending £2k on a range :-) reading up on them you do need to be carefull what you buy thats why I picked up on the details.

The site is truly dreadful! I'll get some pictures up over the weekend, I'd rather have gas but until the kitchen is redone and LPG installed we must have electric (at least it's going to be induction!).
