Which? comments:

"The three Bush washing machines we have tested recently were all massive let downs, so as we haven’t tested this model yet, we’d suggest that buying it would be a gamble."

Surely peoples own reviews must count for a lot though 4.7 out of 5. Shame I've just replaced mine or I'd have definitely gone for it.

Are the Bush machines still re-badged Haier ones?

Washing machine repair man told me when buying a machine either buy a cheap one or an expensive one, not anything mid-range because the mid-range ones don't last any longer than the cheap ones.

Not sure that's true but it's not just about how long they last - do they do the job? I read a Which? review recently for a Hisense washing machine: it was cheap but the review said something like 'fails to do what you bought it for, ie wash your clothes'! Interestingly, when I needed a new washer just before Christmas I also looked at reviews for Miele at over £1000: said they were the most reliable (by a small margin) but still not the best at getting clothes clean. Went for another Bosch in the end and hope it lasts 11 years like the previous one. Choose the right one (plus a bit of luck thrown in) and mid market can offer the best value over time. I could buy three of those Bosch machines for the price of the Miele.

If that score is on the Argos site you need to be very cautious: that's from people who've just bought one (so based on price over performance/reliability - and they're unlikely so say they were stupid to buy it) and I have my own concerns about Argos reviews: they do often seem excessively positive for very mediocre goods. Is it a reflection of their customer base?

In my experience most people are overfilling wm/wrong program if it ain’t washing clothes. That’s the basic of all machines which are designed to do such.

My Hotpoint - 40c wash for shirts uses most water, I use this for everything (except bedding, underwear and towels 60c) 80min 1400spin wash - much better than the minimal water 40c cottons wash that’s over 2 hour cycle and isn’t the best at washing due to the water saving feature that really is.

A £400 machine isn’t perfect either^, people really need to keep a copy of the programs near their wm.

I think Argos invite people to review their products via email, you can't just log in and leave a review, so I would take them with a pinch of salt. They've only invited me to review a product once. And do they even publish most of the bad reviews? It's not like Amazon's review system that's for sure.

I think it was the Hoover/ Hotpoint/ Zanussi/ Candy ones he was warning about, the £350-400 jobs. Bosch I think are a bit better than these.

I've had my Argos Haier one for 10 years and although the door sensor is a bit dodgy, it's still running (touch wood) and it was about £180.
