Ebac' barely coherent response to the Which review, which is essentially that Which only test machines on tough stains which somehow isn't fair or representative, and that most people would in fact put some chemical remover on a tough stain first rather than rely on the WASHING machine to WASH it properly makes me more determined than ever to avoid them.

I have a Miele and I have never had to pre-treat a stain. it just does the job. It washes properly. And it has a 10 year warranty, parts and labour.

I don't want a machine that cleans really badly for 7 minutes let alone 7 years.
They may not be cheapest out there but 7 years warranty makes it really appealing and the fact they're apparently made here in UK is amazing.
Very interesting, and great to see a UK manufactured brand!
I picked up the cold fill only 8kg one last week. From Crampton & Moore though which was actually a fiver cheaper and with £3.50 Quidco too.

Clothes go in dirty and come out clean. Not really sure what else there is to it.

Hasn't broken down yet, will report back in 6 years and 51 weeks time how I get on.

My Bosch is playing up recently, waiting for black Friday sale. This one looks promising, does anyone has it and let HDUK community their experience?

Other than Miele and obscure machines like Speedqueen and Maytag, Bosch are well up there.

I would stick with that over one of these, although they must have some faith in their own product if they give 7-years.

It’s only an insurance policy to cover repair costs. Big issue is IF you can wait for the engineer to call out and IF the engineer can get the parts. this is where it falls down. They don’t have any of their own engineers either so service will be erratic at best.

Hope they are good machines and they do well, we need as much manufacturing in this country as possible.

and it cost 3 times what this does...you forgot that part Jonny lol. Newer Mieles aren't what they used to be.

even mieles costing £1400 only have a 5 yr warranty these days lol.

From that article:

I’m not sure these are stains the majority of us would achieve daily and need our Washing Machine to get out"

The rest of the response is similarly convincing

I get grease on me daily - it is part of my job! Why would I buy a washing machine that the actual manufacturers state won't wash properly? Amazing - they are trying to make a virtue out of being unable to wash normal dirt!

The first washing machine that claims that running quietly and being eco is far more important than actual washing!
Shame there's no silver/greyish colour options.

This is over 2 years old - unless there are similar reports on the ltest models or they have bad reviews then you constantly banging on about this is misleading.

You do appear to be a little feverish in your condemnation of Ebac Jonny - time to dial it down?

He talks some crap in that article banging on about the government trying to get everyone to have qualifications and degrees so they become too clever for hard work. Yet I assume his washing machines were more than likely designed by degree level workers and not his low skilled work force as he likes to call them. And I don't believe his claim for 1 minute that 50% of the people in the UK want to work in factories, it's a load of rubbish.

Judging by the reviews I wouldn't bet on it
I don't have a washing machine by ebac but I did buy a dehumidifier which went back as it was as loud as a steam train. Must have been designed by low skill workers!
One thing I do know is that modern washing machines use less water but it makes the wash cycle about 3 times longer which in theory will make the bearings wear quicker. The average washing machine lifespan used to be 11 years but a number of reviews I have read see them failing around 5 and most new washing machine have sealed drums so you cant replace the bearings unless you use a plasma cutter etc... I think the Ebac and Miele dont use sealed drums which in theory makes them easier to repair, Ebac say they will keep spares for 10 years which is handy but if the company goes pop then I guess all bets are off and Miele cost as much as 4 Beko's.

The Ebac has a 7 year warranty that works out in theory about £64 a year for the model I want, I wish there were more reviews around to get a clearer picture, although they do have 60 days no quibble money back guarantee which is handy.

Nice to see a British built washing machine, good luck to them, if more reviews were around or I knew someone with one I might go for it. I have a Beko dishwasher that's been going for 10 years+ and no problems so I might just get a Beko as the spares are everywhere and plenty of reviews, the sealed drum is the only downside though.
Damn, thought this said Eibach.
Sounds like washing machine are much of a muchness.
They all go wrong eventually.

John Lewis with extra warranty is the way to go.

I actually emailled ebac in April this year to ask about this and they said:


"Thank you for your email. The drum bearings cannot be replaced so easily as the entire tub/drum assembly would need to be replaced. If drum bearings did come to fault on one of our machines, we would arrange for the machine to be exchanged"

So it seems ebac are sealed drum too. Shame really as they could use replaceable bearings/repairability as a selling point, given how conscious people are starting to become of our throwaway culture.

The guy who serviced my washing machine said you may as well buy a cheap machine these days as they don't last.

Miele may be the exception, but at a price.

Thanks for this, yes the whole drum prices are usually expensive £150+ then labour on top. I'm not going to buy a Miele so I think Beko or maybe Indesit will do as none of them are built to last. Some good info here also:

Which has to be one of the most awful consumer organisations there is. When they reviewed vacuum cleaners they didn't even factor in the cost of bags for bagged vacuum cleaners when comparing against bagless. They used to and maybe still do claim to be a charity yet are clearly a commercial company and I remember seeing a photo of their hq which had a huge number of Mercedes in their car park, so clearly pretty decent wages for some of them. They charge a huge amount for their pamphlet of a magazine.

As for washing machine performance maybe their ebac reviews are accurate but the more aggressively you clean clothes the shorter time they last. If I had heavily stained clothes I would treat the stain separately rather than aggressively clean all clothes and shorten their life. Are heavily stained clothes considered a normal wash? Again don't have the full details.

With regard Miele washing machines which Which seem to love, many of the lower end models only come with a 2 year warranty and repairs outside 2 years are often horrific with regard pricing. You'd be mad to buy a Miele without a long included parts and labour warranty.

uk.trustpilot.com/rev….uk

The Which reliability ratings seem good information but the reviews Which does themselves are often amateur at best and not a good source of information, it's also seems that when many have protested about their poor reviews of products those products gradually get an improved rating over time which seems manipulative and a commercial approach in that they are trying to prevent alienating their readership when they get reviews wrong. Ultimately Which reviews are just reviews by a handful of people and far worse than reviews gathered from 1000s of owners which is a far better source. Again though I find Which reliability information useful but that is gathered from their readership rather than the less than impressive Which staff.
