Washing machine HELP please

Can anyone please help me, we have just bought our first house and move on Friday.
I really need to buy a washing machine and as we have always lived in rented houses I have never had to before as a result I have no idea what makes a good washing machine and what doesnt or how much I should pay for one or anything.

Can anyone suggest any goods deals please money is really tight as we have so much to buy.

Thanks in advance.

Just dont buy hoover-i have had 7 tumble driers replaced in around 6 months(leaks or noises)and the washing machine is rubbish too...I replaced an old hotpoint and cheap tumble drier which were better than the new ones!!!!

check out comet clearance auction on the comet site,bottom left hand side. All the big stores have them now, if money is short do you have an Argos card six or nine months to pay depending on what you buy and their prices are good.

just a thought-son bought his from Brighthouse but not on credit-they sold him what was £400 retails for £100 as it was a repossesion I think...6 months warranty-free delivery and £5 to set it up. Worth a phonecall maybe? just make sure it has a spinspeed of at least 1200 so clothes will dry faster if you use a drier and save electricity?

Top Makes Are Seimens And Bosch - Bosch Also Give A 5 Yr Warranty Which Is Great Peace Of Mind

The last two washing machines that I've had have been made by SERVIS and have been the cheapest. They have lasted for years and the one I've got now is a really nice silver colour, does the job really well:thumbsup:

Zanussi and Tricity are cheap but decent brands.

We used to sell & repair washing machine and just from personal experience: DON'T buy Servis, Indesit, Hoover, Hotpoint (ranked from crappiest to slightly less ******!). They're cheap and nasty.
Zanussi & Bosch are good value for money.

Its all personal opinion. I have had a hotpoint washing mahcine for 5 years now, used twoce daily, not a problem with it.

Zanussi & Bosch are good value for money.


Yet neither, in the grand scheme of things, guarantee to work longer than any of those you mentioned above.

To the OP, get the best machine you can afford and either put money aside to pay for repairs if they come or buy a warranty that will cover your for parts labour and callout charges.

Its that simple really.

Agree Bosch and Zanussi, never had a problem with either!

Had a Candy washer/dryer that lasted me over 8 years!
#11
Ive seen a couple in Apollo 2000 not on line but in store and samsung for £200 and and whirlpool for £189 both over 1400 spin speed anyone had either of these makes?
Thanks guys. xx
#12
I had a Zanussi that was still going strong after 20 years - true .
Last year I just got fed up with it and bought the best make which is Miele . But not cheap.
#13
I have a whirlpool about six or seven years now and never had a problem at all.

Have you got plumbing in the new house for a washing machine? the new ones now only take a cold water supply (rather than a hot and cold supply).

Got a new washing machine about a year ago and after trawling through lots of websites found that Zanussi got good reviews for lower priced brands.....
#15
My first hopoint lasted 14 years but i did have lots of trouble with it. My second only lasted about 5 years and then i have another hotpoint now but i always keep the insurance going on my washer and cooker and its new for old. If it breaks you are in trouble. Its well worth it.:thumbsup:
#16
Got a Zanussi which is fine, prefer Whirlpool though mucho better.
#17
I have Whirlpool machine, still working after 8 years. However, if I would buy a washing machine today, I'd go for Bosch/Siemens (same company really - BSH).

Lot's of advice is here: http://www.ukwhitegoods.co.uk/

I don't know what model it was but they had an "A" energy rated Whirlpool washing machine in Asda for £180 which seems a good price to me. It must be fairly good machine to be "A" rated.....

Check out bargain crazy they had some washing machines there plus you got the 17.5 % discount with the code try it.

The "A" rate apparently means nothing in terms of washing machine quality:

It's A rated for Energy thus saving you money obviously

If you read that article you'll see that how that A is achieved and what is its correlation to real world. So it might not save you money after all.
