I know that this has appeared on HUKD already, but not at this price. I also know that you get what you pay for. However, my wife and I just bought one of these and with the £3/month currys homecare card, they'll replace the thing if it breaks down for nothing, so we get what we pay for, but it will keep being replaced, so we felt that it was a really good deal.

Good deal. Would just like to correct you on Currys care plan though. It will be repaired unless beyond economical repair or parts are not available for a repair to be completed in 14 days, then it would be replaced like for like. Still a great buy for a washing machine. :-)

Yeah, gili, I did know that - I just didn't express myself well. The way I look at it, it means that even though it's a cheap machine, I won't be hurt by its being cheap, as it will be replaced or repaired.

Beco seems to very reliable. So must be a good buy even without care card.
P. S. O2 priority moment gives £10 off £100 spend

That's cool, as long as you were aware, I did wonder if maybe you had been mis-sold the warranty. :-)

I have had my Beko washing machine for nearly 5 years now. It hasn't put a foot wrong and still looks brand new so I would definitely buy another one and £139.99 is a great price for a new washing machine but for me the 1000 spin lets it down so I would have to spend a little extra for a faster spin but heat from me.

My cousin bought one from Argos on Thursday, (a slightly different model with 1200 rpm spin speed), at £149 and is delighted with it .

Stay back from buying Beko - they're cheap for a reason! I've had my washing machine a few years and I am kicking myself for not spending a little more on a better quality brand.

I have had myself beko for just over 5 years now and it's never let me down, sticking with beko from now on!

Also consider this which has 1200 spin and free delivery for £148.99:

Not voting. 1000 spin might as well be a 100 spin

I've had a cheapo sub £200 Beko for a few years now - blinkin' good value!

Beko

if you pay 3/month for care plan, you are losing 36 pounds in yours first year (12 months standard manufacturer warranty) and after lets say 4 years you care plans is costing you more than washing machine itself. so after that period your total cost is nearly the same of john lewis better spec and made by aeg electrolux washing machine. cant vote on this one

My washing machine packed in a couple of weeks before Christmas about 2 years ago. Nowhere could deliver one before Christmas apart from Next and I bought the only one the could promise delivery before Christmas - a silver Beko machine. 2 years on, it is still going strong and in fact I prefer it to the previous one which had cost twice the price, It is on at least once a day too!

I have a 7kg 1300 spin beko.

Nowt wrong with it at all. Great buy.

I only use my Hotpoint at 1000 spin and have no issues (it goes up to 1400)
What's wrong with 1000?!

Got a beko fridge freezer
and a even cheaper washing machine 7/8 years
like they said no problems luck of the draw

our present washing machine is a Beko . it isn't even 4 years old yet and it has needed new brushes in the motor and a drive belt. it has given up tonight , programmer is pooped.

we wont have another.

anything bad about BOSCH machines ??

Our washer (Hotpoint Aquarius) had a 'brain out' recently - ended up talking to 3 different repair guys who all told me to try a few things and I got it working again!!

I asked all of them for tips on machines they recommend and they all said "if you can afford one, get a Bosch or a Miele" - Bosch machines start at £250ish but Mieles are WAY more expensive (they offer 10 year warranties if you want em tho!)

I asked what NOT to buy and they said "own brands and stuff you've never heard of" - examples included Currys Essentials, Logik, Proaction and Bush - simply because you cannot get parts for those and you WILL NEED THEM

When I asked about Beko, they all said they were "OK but some of the wash cycles are VERY long and they are touchy if you overload em" - that said they all also mentioned that EVERYONE overloads their washer - so... ;0

Another good tip is to check the paddles in the drum are removeable/replacements are available. Some cheaper washers apparently have the paddles 'as part of the drum' now, so if they break (and they will - I've replaced 2 in ours) you're throwing the whole machine away!!

p.s. another tip is "just because it says 7kg doesn't mean it will TAKE that" - there's a trend to smaller/shallower drums which can leave you doing more loads (it reduces the energy rating if they make the load area smaller - apparently) - so don't mistake 'load capability' for 'load capacity'
Edited by: "therealjohnpeat" 26th Oct 2014

Our Beko washer (1800 AAA+ model) died about 5 mins outside the warranty period. Please observe the load limits and be aware that most appliance like these are not designed or longevity (eg x Hrs operation or x no. Cycles).

I think my wife regularly severely overloaded the machine and we do too much washing!
Edited by: "stinkybeard" 26th Oct 2014

I got an LG direct Drive washer about 2 years ago. It's very quiet and you can't even feel it even on a fast spin. They must balance the drum or something. I think I remember an advert with a 50p piece balanced on end. Anyway I can't fault it.

Saying that £140 for a washer is cheap. I guess if you got a few years out of it, you can't really grumble.

Fantastic value, very reliable brand. Which have given the brand as high as 5/5 for reliability for washing machines. This washing machine also reviews well.

http://www.reevoo.com/p/beko-wmp601w#review_5061164

I think the drum will be sealed/welded so there is no possibility of bearing replacement at an economic price. Same with the drum paddles that can't be replaced for same reason.

Note also despite their excellent reliability Beko only offer a 1 year guarantee so it could be a write off in 13 months time if you get one of the few that fail.

Also the 1200 spin model is only £9 more from AO and coop electrical.

let me just say this I have a beko washer that I got for £159 from currys early last year as my £450 hotpoint washer gave up in less than 2 years.the way I look at it is I can buy 2 of these for one hotpoint and they come with 12 months warranty so I cannot lose.by the way my beko is working as good as the day I got it.

I'm pretty sure this is the washer I have, I'm a bloke, a club footed ham fisted bloke, I clearly over load it and generally have no idea what I'm doing with this kind of thing, but it's still going strong and like new after like 8months and like the person above says, if it dies after a year it cost less than an extended warranty/better make even if I buy two (I have no reason to suspect it will though).

People go on as though Bosch don't go wrong, they do, things are engineered to a price, some are going to be engineered down some up, id say your going to be getting a better product for your money with a brand like beko trying to come up in the game rather than Bosch which is trying to milk as much profit from its already good name - now I'm not suggesting that after all is said and done the bosch isn't the better machine, I'm saying that on a part by part basis, they are probably a lot closer to each others quality than their respective prices would have you believe

Can someone help me here, would a 6kg load be enough for 2 adults and a newborn? Or would be better going for a 7 or 8kg? Thanks

I don't trust Beko after the fridge freezer fires and the cookers gasing people.

Unfortunately the fridge freezer in my flat is a beko, I don't trust it even though its not one of the affected ones

1/2 million deadly Bosch/Siemens dishwashers in this country too.

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

Not forgetting lots of indesit issues in the past too.

Miele is definitely the brand for safety I guess. They have had recalls for vacuum cleaners but for large kitchen appliances you have to go back to 2001 for a tumble dryer.

Bosch/Siemens are as bad as Beko in that they have produced some deadly appliances.

Lets not forget either that Beko has the largest market share in the UK for white goods and is second in Europe. So is more exposed.

Lastly on ethics etc,

Beko score high like Miele. Ignore the indesit/hotpoint rating as they are now owned by Whirlpool. Bosch/Siemens are by far the worst offenders.

So all things considered I think Beko come out very well considering their low price, reliability and ethics.

-------------------------------

It is bosch, siemens and neff and they have probably burnt more houses down with dodgy made pcb contol units for their dishwashers than beko fridged. Not only that they have more serious issues with their tumble dryers now.

And we are talking hundreds of thousands of faulty products still being used daily in the UK by a premium brand company..

interesting aren't they rather expensive too, can't say I've ever owned any products from them

Bad experiences with Beko washing machines. Had one for when I bought my house 5 years ago. The motor failed within the first few months (machine was never loaded), then the main motherboard went about a month after the warranty period was over. Argos were great after I mentioned the sales of goods act, and had quite a lot of money back so didn't lose too much money. Bought a hoover washing machine to replace it, and the thing has been fab. I guess it was just bad luck, but due to this reason, I wouldn't have a beko machine again.

Its a Beko. That means HOT HOT HOT!

yes nick that's a great deal - if it breaks beyond repair and gets replaced mother nature can foot the bill. She can pay for the manufacture of each machine you get, all the silicon and plastics used in each machine, the fuel used to fold the metal and to deliver it to your door. Then she can pay for the fuel to take your broken machine away, its unlikely to get stripped for parts because its a cheap model so she will store it somewhere for you until it gets crushed and pushed into a pile of other peoples cheap washing machines. I'm glad you like phrases and its often true you get what you pay for, so have you heard the one about quality over quantity?

Man up and buy something you can repair.

we have a beko and no problems since we had it, had it 3+ years now

Well frank, I'm afraid we can't all afford to shell out for the most expensive whatever in order to maintain a holier-than-thou attitude toward ecological issues. Sadly, most of us are trying to balance some awkward financial situations, and so use HUKD and other similar sites to help us to make the best of what we have. I'm a part time student, so I work part time, pay my OU fees (if you want a holier-than-thou position - there you go, I pay my way) and have to study as well, so our money doesn't go as far as if I were in full time employment, so I appreciate HUKD as it helps me to balance the books.

Now, if you're willing to foot the difference between this, and say, the rather lovely £900 LG I saw at Currys when I bought it, then I'm not above charity, but if you're just trolling for eco brownie points, then you've done what you came here for.

Also, I repaired my washing machine 3 times. Sadly, it's now beyond redemption and needs replacing but if you are willing to help others who are in my situation, by repairing their machines rather than throwing them away, then I'm sure an offer on the other section of the site would be taken up!

I always considered Beko to be rubbish washing machines just from what people say but after buying one and using extensively for over two years in terms of reliability we had no issues. I think the bad reputation came from history but now they are robust cheap machines I believe. We paid £179 for ours and the wash cycles are slow but if this is all you want to pay and reliability is ultimately whats important to you than I would not worry to much about the modern Beko machines. The machine certainly is not a Miele but is good enough, well worth the price.

Fair point Nick, you're a student and can't be made accountable for the consequences of your actions. I'm on here because I love a bargain too but your wasteful attitude is NOT something I share or agree with. I wouldn't encourage people to buy something that would be replaced every 6 months. I hope the Beko lasts.
