JL only does price match if the other retailer has both an online presence and a physical outlet. Not entirely sure if co-op electrical is the same as co-op stores on the high street but it could be worthwhile to give it a try
Good price for 9 kg.

Should have gone for this one instead of the Sammy Ecobubble for £400+ quid. I dont see much difference except for the high speed of 1600 rpm which takes water off the clothes well.
Cracking price. Even if it only lasts two to three years. Just chuck it away at the price
Any working Voucher Codes?

Not a comment on the machine, but I wondered about the "benefits" of higher spin speeds, thinking 1200 was slow these days so I looked it up, stumbled across this :whitegoodshelp.co.uk/was…cy/, seems as usual there is a con /bs with higher speeds. Worth a quick read.
interesting, thanks

Always worth filling in John Lewis online price match form. Much easier than trying to persuade the shop assistant to match.

They also Connect your new washing machine for £19.99 and Removal of your old disconnected appliance for £14.99! I also read the 'delivery and service' what relevance does that have to my point?
shame its only got a 1200 spin function. was looking for something with 1400 or ideally 1600.

I read an article somewhere which highlighted how washing machine prices have come down at the significant expense of reliability. Apparently this is what consumers want- which is sad in a way, especially in an age when we should be trying to reduce waste and consumption.
Had so many issues with my last beko washing machine. it broke down 7 times in its first year, and finally Beko decided to write it off and i got a replacement, with a different make, from currys. Never again would i buy a Beko washing machine.
Cracking price.I have had Beko for 5 years no problem at all.
Would definetaly recommend to those who need

That article is 8yrs old, are there any newer reviews?
I have a very similar machine, 7kg 1500 rpm from AO.com. Great machine, the 28mim daily wash is a life saver
Bought a Beko Dishwasher a couple of years ago, major rust started a few months after the 2 year warranty ran out. Beko were totally uninterested to the point of being rude. They don't agree that a dishwasher should last longer than 2 years! Learnt our lesson, will never buy another Beko product, they are a bit cheaper for a reason!

That's a really crap article. It assumes the ONLY reason to buy a higher RPM machine is because it saves you money in the long run. Seriously, I've never known a single person who factors that into the equation.

People buy a higher RPM machine because it's faster to dry things. The faster spin means more water is removed, which means it drys faster. If you have kids running around and need things washing regularly, or you work long hours and only get the weekend to do washing, then over the day, it makes a huge difference.

It also uses the results from a 6kg washer (which is quite small), and is an 8 year old article. This is an issue because since 2014, washing machines must be rated A or above (A+++). Some older models might still be kicking about in shops though, as it wasn't made illegal to sell them.

The article also makes more silly claims to try and bolster their point:

"Slower spin speeds mean –More stable washing machines.Longer lasting w … "Slower spin speeds mean –More stable washing machines.Longer lasting washing machines because there’s less wear and tear on the bearings, motor, carbon brushes, suspension etc.*"



Stable washing machines? LOL. Yes, okay. I guess if you live on a boat or an airplane then how "stable" it is might be important. For the rest of us, adjusting the legs properly and placing it on a flat surface will do.

As for lasting longer because of being slower....Rightttt.....Because the parts wouldn't have been up-rated to handle the load, like every other mechanical device that is built by someone with a brain. It's like claiming a 1 liter Corsa engine will outlive an 1.8 Honda VTEC because 1 liter is less.

Quite simply, people normally buy a higher RPM washer for speed, not for saving money.

Sadly it seems you've only scanned the article before dismissing it. The article doesn't assume anything, it's very balanced and only trying to give useful information. There is no difference whatsoever in quality between a washing machine spinning at 1200 and one spinning at 1600 or 1800, that's one of the problems. The extra fast spinning ones just aren't up to it and don't last very long at all - some are even exploding on spin. The only point of the article is to say - hey, don't get obsessed with spin speeds and get sucked into paying a lot more for one that may not be as reliable, is nosier and may not last as long.
Is it better than the Samsung ecobubble machine which was posted a few days ago?

No, I haven't just skimmed it. It's incredibly poor and offers very little real world applicable advice. The article even says that the stats are directly lifted out of a manual:



There is nothing to verify this against. It doesn't even say which manual it's from.

That to one side, you're not even addressing a single one of my points. Not only that, the claims you're making are simply nonsense. For example:


This just isn't true. I've replaced several machine drums over the years. The part numbers between different RPM drums are different, along with the suspension and bearings. Go and read the service manuals for a Bosch washing machine: The bearings are rated for different RPM drums, along with many of the other parts. The quality of these items is normally related to the brand and which parts they have used.
To claim that there is "no difference whatsoever in quality" is nonsense.



ALL washing machines can fail, like any mechanical device. If higher RPM ones were "EXPLODING" regularly when spinning, do you really think they would be sold?
You provide no evidence at all about higher RPM machines lasting less time. Some of the best selling machines on the market are higher RPM ones and have a low failure rate as can be seen on online reviews.

Present some evidence to these claims.



"May not" is a great cop out to something that provides little more than ramblings without any evidence. It also works with the opposite to though:

A higher RPM washing machine may last longer. It may also be more reliable.

We're not living in the 80's. All the information and ratings for things like bearings are available online. Stop lying and telling people that there is "no difference whatsoever in quality" and other such unproven claims.

If the article simply stated the costs of a higher RPM, against the electricity saving - awesome. That's fine. But it's not. It's trying to claim people buy higher RPM because of saving money (most don't - it's a time thing), with all sorts of other nonsense thrown in there with no evidence.

I was the under the impression that Beko washing machines came with 2 years warranty as standard? Ours certainly did.

Edit: just checked and it's the built in ones that come with 2 years warranty. Thought I wasn't going mad lol.

Do you have a link please? looking for a machine for my parents and the higher spin interests me. lower load granted, but its a option that i'll put to them. bigger load but lower spin or higher spin and lower load.

looking at machines at the £300 mark if anyone has any recommends.
Had my Beko washing machine for nearly 2 years and haven't had any bother with it. Nor my Beko oven, tumble drier or dishwasher. Maybe just been lucky but so far they've been brilliant. My washing machine looks almost identical to this except it goes to 1400rpm. I usually leave it at the default 1200 anyway so not a deal breaker.
don't get hung up on brand names, cost, warranty and performance are what you should think about. If it performs great then it's always a gamble on how long machines last so warranty is your next consideration.

^^ I bought her a couple of weeks ago. In fairness, she is twice the price @ £399. But she is a 9kg, 1400rpm, A+++ with 5 year warranty. 10 year warranty on her direct drive motor. She is quiet, beautiful and supreme in every way. I love her.

What is the 14min quick wash like? Most of my stuff is just T-shirts / shorts with little wear, and the shortest cycle we have on ours is the best part of an hour, which seems excessive.
I use a Beko Washer, it's about 3 year old, I won't be buying another one, money was tight at the time so needs must and all that. I would say if there's not many using the washing machine, one of these cheap washers would be fine.

My next washer I'll be investing a good £400+ for an LG direct drive washer.

Is there something wrong with the Beko one you have at the moment?
