PANASONIC NA-14VA1WGB is normally around the £449 mark at Comet, John Lewis. However now £369 with trade in and fill out the below pdf to get a 5 year warranty direct with Panasonic.
I came across this deal this afternoon after my Hoover machine (purchased in 1994! decided to start leaking ps they don't make them like that no more), Comet will minus £80 if you trade in you old wash machine and also not charge for collecting your old machine (normally £8.95).
To claim your £80 discount, enter code PANATRADE80 in the promotional codes box in the basket and select the recycling option when you get to the checkout.
The Panasonic NA14VA1WGB has a top energy rating of A++, 7kg capacity 1400 spin washing machine with 3D sensor wash technology and a rapid 15 minute quick wash. Inverter technology not only provides the optimal cleaning performance, but ensures the most efficient energy consumption.
Spin speed: 1400 rpm
Wash grade: A
Energy efficiency grade: A++
Spin efficiency grade: B
Good deal for a really energy efficient washing machine. You can also get 1600 rpm model for a £10 more, but I didn't want to go for that model due to noise and apparently higher than 1400 rpm doesn't make that much of a difference in drying and also a risk of more wear due to the higher rpm.
PS another tip if you don't have an old washing machine lying around, go get one from a skip or your local recycle place.
