Re-badged Hoover...shouldshould be OK for this price for a large load machine.

Looks more like a re-badged LG, and this opinion supported by others on the net. If so, this could be a real bargain as similar sized big LGs are around £500.

Hoover bought all the rights in 2013.

Haier build machines for Baumatic and Wrens own viceroy brand.
Hoover may own the name but they don't build them.

Correct. My mistake. It is actually rebadged.


"Much of the Baumatic laundry is supplied by Vestel, Daewoo and some others with refrigeration coming from the usual Chinese sources such as Hisense or others of that ilk, dishwashers from Midea and Haier and American fridge freezers appear to also be Daewoo."

It appears that section was wrote in 2006 and may not be the case since Hoover took over. More likely Hoover now.

Got a Baumatic dishwasher (now 3.5 years old) and it's falling apart, started after 18 months. Completely put me off the brand. Maybe they're better these days, maybe not.

Dunno what they're like with washing machines but my Baumatic dishwasher died within a year and range cooker is falling apart as well

You get what you pay for

Avoid, there is better to be had.

pure crap. I'll never buy buamatic anything again

Baumatic and Hoover are brands of Candy the italian white goods manufacturer. So expect quality/reliability to match Candy products. From memory Candy products are slightly ahead of whirlpool (owns indesit now so also indesit/hotpoint) and Samsung but generally at the bottom of reliability below the mid level brands. Class leader for reliability by far for budget price white goods is Beko but always worth considering any brand that is at a great price with a long parts and labour guarantee like 5 years I think. The baumatic has a 2 year guarantee so basically £125 per year for guaranteed use. My Panasonic (7kg load) was only about £47 per year for guaranteed use.

You can get a 9kg Panasonic here for £420

There is currently a £120 cashback offer making it £300 and a 5 year guarantee offer. That is effectively only £60 per guaranteed year (less than half the Baumatic cost). There may also be topcashback/quidco (not checked). I have a Panasonic washing machines. It's brilliant to use and has very solid build quality. It's reliability rating probably doesn't match Miele, Beko, Bosch or Siemens but its at the mid-level better than Candy I think.

Great info, Panasonic don't have a great reputation for making washing machines though, the usual built by another company with a credible name stuck on the front.

In Europe, Candy of Italy have the rights to the Baumatic and Hoover washing machine brands.

Techtronic Industries of Hong Kong appear to own the rights to the Hoover vacuum cleaner name for some global markets. Techtronic also have Vax, AEG (power tools), Ryobi, Milwaukee & Dirt Devil.

I think you meant to reply to me. My Panasonic is based on a vestel model from Turkey and they actually have a good reputation in Turkey for reliability where Vestel washing machines are sold under their own brand rather than someone else's. Some earlier and possibly other Panasonic models in the current range were/are made in China and their reputation is not as good.

Even 1 in 10 Miele's fail approx as washing machines are mechanical devices and Miele cost dis-preportionately more to repair than many more common brands. Their entry level washing machine only has a 2 year guarantee. The best safe approach to buying any washing machine is to ensure you get a long warranty even if you pay extra for it unless you like to gamble with your money.

No, the best approach is to do the research and find a reliable product.

A long warranty means you just avoid paying (directly) for failures. You still have the hassle of it failing, waiting in for the repair technician to arrive etc.

It's much better to have one that doesn't fail. When I bought my Bosch 11 years ago, the Which magazine in the local library stated 95% of that model require no repairs in the first 6 years. Mine has required zero repairs in 11 years, which is exactly how it should be with a quality appliance.

Except the Bosch of yesteryear and the Bosch of today are not the same. You simply don't have the required info to know how long a Bosch will last when you purchase it today. So no you are incorrect the only safe option is to make sure you get a long parts and labour guarantee. There are plenty of people complaining about buying unreliable Bosch washing machines on this forum who were advised to buy it as a quality washing machine. The reality is every brand fails even 1 in 10 of Miele and likely even more Bosch nowadays. From the best and the worst brands of washing machines is probably a range of something like 1 in 10 to 3 in 10 failures, it's not like every decent brand never fails and cheap brands always do. There are horrible nasty chinese washing machines that will last for many years and Miele's that will fail shortly after delivery. It's all about probabilities. That is the real world.

From the blurb:

will add a great amount of functionality to your kitchen.


Add? How? - & why on earth would anyone wash their dirty laundry in a kitchen anyway? Urgh!

Noticed that. Its as if the pitch was written by an 11 year old, desperate for reasons why you should buy it.

we have had a Baumatic oven for over 7 years, never had a single problem.
