I was after a new washer and went for one using a Debenhams code. Sadly there customer service was so appalling, and I was passed from one person to another, with promises of returned calls within an hour and then nothing for days. They took the money and the appliance was out of stock.
Anyway, having scoured the Which? website, as I have only limited funds and need a reliable washing machine, I was after a Zanussi. 2 models inparticular rate very highly on the which? guide, and there manufacturers provide above average service too. From Duck, the featured Best Buy was a little pricey. However this model did extremely well in all the tests and was overall rated higher than many £700-£800 Mieles and Siemens. It's reliabilty and ovwerall performance was better than many tested.
In the Duck sale it is currently £170.49!!!! with £10 delivery.
This is much cheaper than I can source it elsewhere, and if the quidco comes through, even better. This is the Silver version (I am not bothered about the colour!)
It does say delivery 17 days, but when I ordered last week it said 19 days, and mine came within 3 days!
The staff are very helpful and friendly, and I would reccomend them.
The Appliance of Science - Zanussi experience and know-how shows with these washers. Many features will provide time and cost savings for you meaning you can spend more time doing what you want not what you have to. Special programmes such as silk and woollen washes make handwashing a thing of the past, whilst Quickwash and Start Delay allow you to manage your time effectively - why wait till you get home to do your wash when you can set and forget? Other benefits include a time remaining indicator (so you know how long to go before the wash finishes - brilliant when you have something else to do), reduced creasing option (means easier ironing as clothes are less creased when removed) and no time delay when wanting to unload when the wash has finished thanks to the zero delay safety door lock.
