Product information

The WMB91243LW washing machine from Beko has been designed to save you time, especially with the Xpress Super Short wash function. It’s been rated an impressive A+++ for energy efficiency, which will assist in keeping your energy bills low.
Xpress Super Short
This is a 14 minute programme for a small 2kg load, which is perfect if you’re in a rush.
Delay Timer
You can delay the start of your wash up to 24 hours, this means that you can take advantage of cheaper energy prices in the evening or set the washing to be finished by the time you come home from work so it won’t sit in the washing machine.
Half Load
The cycle detects when you wash a smaller load, it then alters it to save you money and energy whilst still giving your clothes a thorough clean.
Time Saver
Depending on which programme you've selected, the Time Saver function will speed up and save time on your load.

on paper this looks great but ours that we bought a couple of years ago is infuriating. it is supposed to sense the load and adjust the programme accordingly. however, it seems to constantly sense an imbalanced load, despite it being full.... so instead of saving time and energy, it just goes on and on...... for hours! sorry, but can't recommend it, unless you can disable this feature
Good spot OP. I purchased the same washer a year ago. Great low price with Free Delivery as well + 2 year warranty. So far I can't fault this machine. To keep it in tip top working condition it is best to do run the monthly service self clean wash, and add some Power Force washing machine cleaner (from Aldi stores) in the wash programme, also clean out the filter at the bottom of the machine. Has loads of useable programmes as well.
Good find heat added GAZG.

I Ordered this HOOVER DXA68W3 @ £250.00 from currys 20 mins ago as two family members have the 1400 spin 14 min wash etc and works great.
But the wife wanted 1600 spin if any one need a faster spin machine. Use code LKA10R.
Just noticed JL own brand machines/dishwashers only come with a 2 year warrantee now,used to be 3 years.
I bought a beko last year from curry's. It's been no bother. It's 1400 rpm and I think it was 179

I find this is a problem with most washing machines. The best way to get around it is to set it to a Mini 30 mins wash followed by a Rinse program, your clothes are fully cleaned in 45 mins.

Found the same problem with my indesit supposed to be 45 min wash on 40degrees but more than 2hrs !!!!! same explanation given by indesit unbalanced load !!!! apparently these are 'smart machines' well if they are so smart why cant they flash a warning of this prior to my having to spend hours waiting for the thing to finish and costing more to run ......supposedly eco friendly

​yeah, we use the 'Daily Quick' programme​. Seems to work fine with that, but then can't rely on all the other programmes. Shame cos our Beko freezer and dishwasher are great.

If its over-filled or if it hasn't been set level on the floor surface when installed it can sense a non balanced load. Also if you mix lets say heavy towels and everything else is light cottons or less absorbent materials it can have the same effect. I guess the issue is that is going slow caused by operator error or some sort of fault with the washing machine. When my Panasonic/Vestel washing machine was spinning slowly and leaving clothes still too wet I soon realised it was my error in loading it and I haven't had the issue since.
Great spot OP - heat added!
I think I'd give the extra 3 year warranty for £95 a miss, given you can buy a new washing machine for £200 in two years time (maybe longer!) with hopefully another 2 year warranty.
Save the £95 to go towards the next £200 machine?
Interested to hear peoples thoughts on extended warranties.......

thanks, im about to order

did you consider the HOTPOINT Smart WMFUG842G? im undecided
Beko white goods are so underated, this is a fantastic price for 9kg. We must all be washing bigger loads these days, 5-6kg used to be the norm. HOT
On the look out for a black one
Original Poster
I looked at the hotpoint for hours, but the 9kg version and bounced between AO, Argos and various others. Not sure about hotpoint '10 year parts' then read a few threads on how the labour charges were just stupid.

As luck would have it, happened in this one as I was in John Lewis and I couldn't believe it! I've gone for around 300 with the John Lewis 5 year etc.

I'm not sure if I have probably wasted £95... our current Seimens is 7/8 years old and nothing has gone wrong that I couldn't clear out, but I've never had a Beko and John Lewis aftercare and service is amazing so I took the plunge for 3 additional years piece of mind.

No I did not as 3 family members so far have Hoover models with1400 spin and 1600 spin 8kg and 10 kg versions and love them.
Your model only has 1400 spin and the wife wants 1600.
I went for 8kg 1600 only for price as don't need 10kg and its £40.00 more.
Don't forget to use the code if at currys.

Don't know about this model, but recommend Beko washing machines. Very happy with mine, 4 years and never had an issue.
Ordered. Thx OP

That's why I avoided a tumble dryer, I'm a worrier. I haven't seen any stories about washing machines catching fire though so was happy going for this.

That's tumble dryers and they seem to be one of the most dangerous devices because they collect fluff and that fluff is so easy to ignite. Still something like 1/2 million Bosch tumble dryers that are also dangerous and a few other recalls although most now are probably out of use due to age.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/newsbysector/retailandconsumer/9933927/Bosch-half-a-million-dishwashers-that-catch-fire-still-being-used.html

My mother recently changed her dishwasher, it was a Hotpoint and still working. It was only when I looked to sell it on ebay for her we discovered that had a recall despite her buying it new and being at the same address they made no effort to contact her. The repairman came today to upgrade it so its safe to sell. It will probably only fetch £10 on ebay anyway, bit of a farce really. It would have been cheaper for them if they bunged her £20 and just took it away. From what I understand he spent almost an hour changing a component. He did say it was one of the best dishwashers ever, we may quote him on the ebay advert

Noise Level- Spin Cycle:
75dB
Noise Level- Wash Cycle:
62dB

Anyone know if this is quiet or loud? Really want to replace mine that sounds like the entire RAF is flying over!
Also, is there much difference between a 1200 and 1400 spin?

​I must be getting old. That information is useful or beneficial to this deal because .........?
Just to let you know, I phoned JL to know the delivery date. They said that it is out of stock now and would be delivered in August... I just cancelled.
Original Poster
Sorry everyone, seems it's expired as OOS
JL called, OOS until august
Also been told not available till August. My current machine is on its last legs and we are desperate for a new one. Are we as customers entitled to a like for like replacement,due to the JL email telling me I would receive my paid for goods in a week?

I tried that and was offered £30 off any other item that was more expensive. Next 9kg machine is £300 I think.

Our one is alive and well enough at the moment, I was looking for one as I thought it would be time soon and if I spotted a good deal I thought it was worth it. As a result, I pushed and said I wanted £30 off what I originally paid and they went for that. so there is a big delay, but we got it for £169 in the end.
