Had great reliability with Beko over the years I've had fridge freezer(13 years) and tumble dryer(4 years) with no breakdowns.
This model reached 374 degrees 7 months ago when it was £10 more expensive.

I purchased one of these on Boxing day. It's a brilliant machine. Much better than the Hotpoint I used to have. I love the quick wash option
I agree with the above, Beko is very good and reliable, we have the washing machine.
Heat added.

Unfortunately Hoover is another rubbish make these days. The Beko will be far superior.

Bought one. Good price



I had one and couldn't fault it. Good find
Don't know much about appliance brands these days.

Do the likes of Hoover, Hotpoint, Zanussi etc still make their own products or is there an equivalent Vestel/UMC TV set up in place?
I agree, my family have a small Beko fridge and freezer, both been running for at least 12 years with no issues and never defrosted (does need it, but my dad can't be bothered). In my opinion low end Bosch and Beko is generally very reliable. The market demands it, in the same way a basic Skoda or low end Toyota will run for years without issue, but the higher end models are more complex and go wrong more often because that part of the market will accept that to a larger degree.

The products that do go wrong are the mid range more complex products, that are still built on the same platform, in the same place, as the basic model but have more bells and whistles like higher spin speeds, more modes, LCD screens instead of a dial and so on. The companies know that the sort of people that buy mid range stuff can afford to get it fixed or have warranty packages and will upgrade every 5 years or so anyway. I am pretty sure Beko is built in Turkey, most low to mid range Bosch, AEG, Siemens, Zanussi etc is made in Spain or Italy, and I dare say former eastern Bloc country's.

Very High end Bosch, Siemens, Miele are built in Germany, or in the case or Gorenje, Slovenia. But it doesn't always mean it's better. And if those LG Direct Drive Inverter machines are so good, then why do so many people put them on ebay, often with faults and error codes?. Why don't all other manufactures, including the commercial machine makers, use the same technology in their machines rather than conventional belt drives?. I am probably being unfair, but I view Hoover, Indesit and Hotpoint as inferior machines, but I have no real evidence as to why, just gut feeling.

Anyway HOT deal, nowt wrong with Beko in my experience. Though do be sure to look on ebay for used, refurbished or graded machines, some amazing bargains to be had.

Loss of suction?
we bought this machine for about £20 more about 6 months ago. So far so good.
It annoys me that most of the time you can buy this machine near to the lower price. The higher price, which they advertise the massive saving on, only stands for a very short length of time. This practice should not be allowed - in my opinion.
Had hotpoints for years (ex-engineer) only changed them as i came across newer models. Didn't have any problems for 20 years. Interested to see what happens now whirlpool own them.
I found, as an engineer, that many faults were customer mis-use.

He was being sarcastic...re spelling.

Lol
Purchased a Beko to replace my Samsung, and although the machine is lovely and does its job you can see where they save money.
For example on mine there is no emergency drain hose, so in the event of a blockage you are going to have to use every towel you
own to drain the appliance and run the risk of ruining your floor if you have laminate, lino or carpet.
The manual said it should have one and tech support said it should have one initially but them came back to say the latest model did not.
What's the time on a mixed load at a 40 deg wash on these pls? Not going by the 180 min manufacturers specs as I don't believe it takes that long
