Built to breeze through washes, this 7KG washing machine is packed with programs to keep your laundry under control. Superb on wash performance, there's a program for every member of your family – from baby to sports – making this machine the ultimate household companion. On top of that, there's a stylish display screen, a 15-min quick wash feature for spills and stains you need gone in a flash, and a 1200rpm spin speed to get them dry.

Other features we've packed into this machine: variable spin speed for delicate items, neat internal tech to adjust water usage for smaller washes, and a top-rated energy rating for keeping bills down (A++). And we think that's pretty impressive!

I've had quite a few washing machines in me time but Bush is the worst I have even encountered. They either leak or the bearing's rattle out your brains. I've had this washing machine constantly leaking. I've had the whole inside replaced and still it leaks.And the worst part is only 2 years old. I'm now getting a newer washing machine guess what not bush lmao
Nice spot op thanks

You will probably find that this shares the same motor, bearings and circuit board as most other budget branded machines. I normally pay this price for washing machines and average 5 years then I replace. My last one lasted from 2012 till last week and averaged 8 wash loads every week.

I'll get myself two just incase one packs up
Bought a Bosch (around £300) in 2000 and lasted 10 yrs. Bought a replacement Bosch in 2010 and still going strong.

Average of about 10 load per week. Never had any leaks etc with either m/c.

My next machine will probably be another Bosch but I like the look of the new Samsung models.

maybe try buying a decent machine and see it last 3 times as long, and wash your clothes properly, as these are terrible.

Something along the lines of: "you buy a washing machine to clean your clothes but this one falls at the first hurdle because your clothes are not clean"!SOUTHWALES: the poster who knows the price of everything but the value of nothing.


I've got a Haier and had it about 10 years.

Had to have a part replaced for safety reasons (risk of fire! This was 4 years after I'd bought it) and door catch a bit dodgy but still working fine otherwise, touch wood.

Engineer said with washing machines you're better buying either the cheap ones or the expensive ones and avoid the Hotpoint, Hoover, Zanussi mid-range ones because they don't last any longer than the budget ones.

This particular model no idea if it's any good though.

On a beko now, 2 years.
Before this one had 2 Hotpoint washers, each lasted 10 years. Neither one had any work done on them and they were still working fine when I replaced them.
I only replaced them when I saw a deal on a new one and considered the age of the washer - thought I was better taking the deal than waiting for a failure on the machine I was using.
The Beko one has impressed me so far.

Excellent price! Thanks @SOUTHWALES

Just re my own experience with Beko, I bought a Beko washing machine and Fridge when I moved into my first house 16 years ago, and both are still going strong! Can't believe how long we've got out of them (hope I don't jinx myself now)

Hotpoint aren't the same as they once where, They used to be made in the UK. They shifted manufacturing abroad and they've been going down hill ever since. They're a lottery these days.

That's good advice.
BEKO is best budget brand though you can often get lower end Bosch for not much more.
It's not just reliability: Which? review of a Haier (which I suspect this Bush really is) said something along the lines of 'you buy a washing machine to wash your clothes, but this one doesn't!'.

Consistent view in this thread that it will be awful but still it gets heat - madness!

I agree. As an ex-engineer for Hotpoint/creda who then eventually were bought out by Indesit/Ariston, who were then bought by Whirlpool.
Once upon a time, even before becoming an engineer for them, I went hotpoint all the way. I have some kitchen appliances that are 20 years old and still going strong.
As an ex- engineer I, unfortunately, do not now have the same confidence in the brand.

Bush is just an Argos white label rebrand as far as I’m aware.
We bought a Bush washing machine this time last year for just a little more than this. I really can't recommend the brand, the bearings gave way 6 months ago and we only do 4 or 5 washes a week.

I'd rather spend a little more and go for a better brand. Not voted either way as price is low for a washer and may suit some but not for us.

I bought a bush cooker, came faulty, engineer came to sort it out and finally broken down soon after 1 yr warranty. Extremely frustrated
I cant understand why this is getting hot.No confidence in this sight anymore.
Bought one of them, broke down beyond repair within 6 months, Argos stopped stocking them in my local store and would order replacement for me to store but told me i had to bring the old one back to store and pick a new one from the store, if they haven't got a replacement i can drive around the country looking for a store that has one or settle for even cheaper machine. When finally after a month with no washing machine i managed to reserve a replacement locally, had to take my old one back, picked up a new machine only to find at home that the brand new one is also not working... and again i had to drive it back.

I will never buy appliances from Argos again. Might be cheap but not reliable and no customer service at all. Call center staff didn't knew what to do so keep transferring me randomly from one person to another - the 5th one admitted they don't know what to do and it would be best if i sort it out in store...

The time off work i had to take to deal with this machine costed more than if i bought a decent machine from decent shop in a first place.
BTW my last machine lasted 10 years because it was a proper brand rather than Argos own...
Sorry I accidentally tapped cold!

Many of the comments from people on hot deals will knock most lower end budget products without actually ever owning the product although they will claim they have, the main reason low cost washing machines have a shorter life is because they normally have a smaller capacity wash loads, but people still load them with a 10kg family wash load and then complain it did not wash there clothes properly or after 6 months the bearings gave out.

You sure? Yes I can and it's clearly you who can't. Again it's cheaper than it usual so of course people are going to vote hot.

But of course there are exceptions to the rule. An LG washing costing £350 (well within the mid-range) shares many of the same internals as their £700 models. The differences are in cosmetics, features and larger load capacity, but otherwise the same machine.

By going entry level on a decent make, you are benefitting from the core internals of that product. These are generally of high build quality, which in turn enable the longevity and reliability of the product.

Often, when you go mid-range on a rubbish brand, you get the same poor quality internals with a few whistles and bells added for good measures.

The only caveat here is that some brands use different manufacturing sited within their ranges. Bosch for example manufacture in Spain, Turkey and Poland.

The vast majority of LG and Samsung washers sold in Europe are manufactured in Poland.

And the moral of the story. It is always better to go entry level on a quality brand, than to go flagship on a poor one.
