Agreed, though I would prefer black, very tempted to get this one anyway.

1200 rpm may be a deal breaker for some

Many thanks for this. Our machine is on its last legs, so I just ordered one of these.

It's to new to find long term reviews, but fingers crossed the bearings assembly is better than the latest model on 'Which', that has a life expectancy of approx 3yrs.

(Heat added)

Great price.

great price for 8 litres and bosh good quality

Great price, our Hotpoint is five years old now and could go any day.

Oh look, beeeeeep, a bosch beeeeeeep washing beeeeeeeep machine, beeeeeeeeeep.

I think it's done!

Bosch are good but for some reason the 5kg model in this range proved more reliable than the larger capacity. there must be different motor or some other difference in part than just the drum sizes

Well ir would make sense... To have a different motor - you need far more power, and to an extent the reduction in reliability is not too suprising...
The forces exerted on the components are far greater with 8kg spinning around - sure things should be proportionately reengineered to compensate, but you can only go so far, or at least within a size, weight and most importantlyhere, price point... So reliability seems to have unfortunately suffers a bit in this case.

I bought this the other day at £279 but rang John Lewis when they reduced it again and they refunded me the difference. Worth a go if anyone else has done the same.

Was looking at this machine for my 70 year old mum. Is it easy to use ?

I was going to order this but then started checking how much water it uses (we are metered) over a year and decided to look for a smaller capacity one and hopefully save money in the longer term;)

done the same - they will refund if you bought at the higher price.

If your mum weighs more than 8kg then you'll need a larger capacity machine! And how would you fit her through the little door?

This one may be a better option as it has a larger door and capacity laundrymachines.co.uk/pro…41/

Thanks, that cheered me up

The wife went from a 1400 hotpoint to a 1200 Panasonic and she noticed the difference. I say the wife as I can't use the machine
