currys/dixon have a matsui 1400 spin one for same price. you can get 1000 spin ones for £130 in places. think argos was one when i was looking
#4
what about the indesit for £159??? Both look pretty identical when compared specs wise. Which is the better build quality????
#5
Comet have a Hoover 1600 spin 6Kg washing machine for £189 - which is a fantastic price for 1600 spin WM.
#6
Just purchased one of these last month for £199.
Very good so far...

This is a very convinient post as I have been looking at buying myself one at the moment. I want to have my very own one so I don't have to use my parent's. The best thing about this is it says its a cold water one (or can be set up as one) which means I could put it anywhere in the house really provided there is a cold water pipe near by. Of course the only other consideration is the waste pipe. :-D

Evening all, :-D

I have one of these which I bought from John Lewis about 2 years ago after a lot of research! Still going strong and no breakdowns yet!

The reason I bought this is because Electrolux/Zanussi/Tricity are all the same company and still make appliances to a decent build quality. The problem with your Hotpoint/Hoover/Indesit models is that they are all owned by the same company now and the cheaper machines are made with a very low build quality - don't even think about getting these repaired as it's likely to be just as much as the machine is worth by the time it goes wrong!

The upside to this model is the build quality, the simplicity and the price.

The downsides that I can tell you from experience are that the machine takes just over 2 hours to do a normal wash, and obviously the max spin speed is only 1000. There is a 'Quick and Cold' wash option though that takes far less time.

If you want a reliable machine at a good price and you are more worried about longetivity than Spin speed I'd go for it at this price (I paid £210 for mine!)

EDIT: Also - just to confirm, yes it is just the one inlet pipe (cold) that you need on this model

this is a very good washing machine as tricity washing machines are made by the same company that makes AEG and ZANUSSI washing machines. its basically a budget version

Yep, pretty good for the price:

According to Which:

"Tricity Bendix specialises in making simple machines which do a reasonable job in most areas. The AW1201 is better than most at rinsing, leaving clothes reasonably free of detergent. Washing is pretty good too. "

Reliable but slow

The AW1401, OTOH, is criticised for its rinsing

"A relatively cheap and easy-to-use model that's most impressive characteristic is the excellent easy care wash. However rinsing is poor and there aren't many fancy features. "

not sure about the AW1001, but seems a better machine than the usual nasty Candy garbage

That's funny dude, they praise the AW1201 model and criticise the AW1401 model, Tricity seem a bit inconsistent. If this is the case, the AW1001 could be good or rubbish. Anyone know anything about the Indesit machine?

Check out this guy's page for a review of the Indesit -

http://www.washerhelp.co.uk/reviews/washing-machine-reviews.html

This is where I got most of my info from - if you look at the bottom right hand side of the page above, he says if you HAVE to buy a cheap washing me, go for either of the Tricity Bendix AW1001 (this one) or the AW140....FWIW ;-)

Edit: For those who can't be bothered to click on the link - he also says in the Indesit review that the Indesit is a budget machine and you're taking your chances a bit with it, and a much better buy would be the (you've guessed it) AW1001

heat added, I'm really grateful for this owlass cheers.

It has saved me the trouble of researching and looking around for a decent washing machine. washerhelp site was really useful is well thanks.
#14
ordered using discount code so got it for £159, quidco hasn't tracked :-( Thanks for posting this dude! Rep+heated
#15
Thanks from me too. My Mum was after a new washer so i rang and told her the deal with the 2 yr guarantee and she asked me to order one. Quidco too hopefully. Thanks again, rep added.

I ordered zanussi 14070 from JL yesterday for £239, UKwhitegoods website reviewed that as one of the best under £300 WMs

Just for the record I believe Indesit now owns Hotpoint and Candy owns Hoover. It used to be that Candy were the most reliable non german washing machine but that was going back a few years. I know these things change regularly and some of the bosch models haven't been that good in recent years. Which are always a good source of info but of course long term reliability reports are about older models generally but at least it highlights big problems with newer models where they fail quickly.

Indesit owns Hotpoint and Candy owns Hoover and Merloni own all of them. :-D Seriously, that's how I thought it was but perhaps they are separate companies :?

I heard that Bosch now make their machines in two different countries and the ones from Germany are still good but the ones from the other country (Indonesia I think) are poor. I'm sure I heard this somewhere but I might just be making it up :p

Maybe your right and Merloni have some sort of interest in Candy/Hoover but as far as I'm aware they are two seperate entities and don't share manufacturing or designs.

I saw a Indesit machine in Empiredirect the other day and it definately said Merloni (Italy) at the back of the instruction manual

Quidco tracked last night, got it for £149.79 with 2 yrs guarantee. Unbeatable.
