Great price! Had my indesit for about 6 years now still 100%

Good deal but definitely worth noting that a 1100 spin isn't that great i.e. you would be better spending an extra £50/70 and getting a 1400.

Some may have been lucky with an Indesit. But with this type of item more than ever you get what you pay for. Just changed ours last year and after loads of research and questioning suppliers and repair men I was told the ony 3 really worth having are Siemens, Bosch and Miele. They are the best bar none. The rest are only average and much of a muchness. I went for a Bosch in the end and the difference is already noticable...

We've had our Indesit for 8 years and it's been incredibly reliable. Previously, we've been through several of the supposedly 'superior' makes like Hotpoint, Zanussi etc and every one was basically cr*p. A washing machine engineer recommended Indesit because 'they aren't fancy but they are ultra reliable'. He wasn't wrong. Great price, OP.

To be fair, that's like saying a Bentley is preferable to a Suzuki Alto. It's the price tags that should be compared here.

IMO: Everyone has their own experiences of white-goods... prices is an issue, but ANY amount of money is a waste of money if something you depend on daily like a washing machine breaks down repeatedly. I use this site for advice/tips as much as getting the "best price".

(nothing personal to anyne here btw)

I had an Indesit WA16 (1600rpm electronic lcd panel, the works) - I had the engineer out from Dom & General 12 times in 3 years. We had new bearings, drum, electonics - everything!.. it was like a new machine made of parts by the end.

He wanted to write it off, but they wouldn't do it. We lost SO MUCH washing time, and scrounged off friends/family.

It finally gave up this year (after about 4 years usage), and now I have a Bosch - all ok so far. I am a member of Which Online, who regularly review washing machines for performance and reliability.

From their own surveys Indesit (and quite afew others) have very poor reliability records. The best for reliability (from memory) were: Bosch, Siemens (which IS Bosch), Meile (horendously expensive), and Electrolux/Zanussi group.

My old nan used to say "Buy cheap, buy Twice!" - she was a wise old lady, and has proved this many times for me.

HTH someone.

The problem is that Indesit were bought out a few years back. They used to be part of the GDA group, which also included Hotpoint and Creda.

8 years ago your indesit was built to a standard, now they are just built to a price to compete with the budget low-end of the market (mainly Turkish made imports).
I can almost guarantee that you would not get 8 years life from a modern washer of this brand, we were a supplier to the GDA group for many years, but lost the contract a couple of years ago as our products were 'too expensive' to use in the new lower-cost machines. I have been on the production line at Indesit on several occasions and know the quality of materials used in their construction.

I personally purchased an Indesit dryer earlier this year for around £120. It includes a 2-year warranty and I purchased it on the assumption that it will be scrapped after 2 years and 1 day, any further use will be a bonus.
I made this decision after scrapping first a Crosslee White Knight and then a Creda dryer after 3 years, which both cost much more and consisted of absolutely appalling build quality and materials.

I can vouch for Meile. We have had a washing machine for 10 years. They even replaced the drum and bearings at 7 years old, which was 2 years outside warranty. I complained that one of the reasons that I made the purchase was due to the 25-year lifespan claim for the machine. Their customer service department agreed and replaced the worn parts at a cost of £300+ free of charge.
They have now got lifetime loyalty from me for this brand of washer.

Miele are not cheap, but they are reliable and if the 25 year lifespan proves to be anywhere near accurate, will have saved 4 or 5 purchases of lesser cost machines.

My mum's had hers 6 years and now needs replacing. Heard bad things about the Servis ones, which I though were rebranded indesit ones?!
