parts only. you're forced to use their 'mechanics ' and have to pay their prices. Faulty parts covered only and don't cover standard wear and tear but still charge for call out

for the parts yeah, but to get the part you will have to pay exorbitant fees for their own engineers to fit it

so you pay more than getting it fixed yourself....They always find ways of telling you " the warranty does not cover it, in this case"

they charge the same price to repair any Indesit produced machine, inclusive of parts, as they do for the engineer call out on a parts "warranty" job. Somewhere around the £120 mark.

Yes, I bought a dishwasher with a similar offer, when I rang up to register the productI was told labour was £120 but I could buy an extended warranty over the phone there and then instead, the registration process felt more like a sales pitch, I declined their offer.

I wish I could vote cold 1000000 times! they should be done for false advertising, there is a £150 call out fee that has to be paid before they will do anything, only thing I want to thank you for is giving this scam a forum to be aired in

If you are a heavy user of the washing machine like me (Big family) then just pay £6 a month insurance to Hotpoint. They cover other makes too. It is worth every penny and i have had them out 3 times in the last 2 years on my 4-5 year old washer. The last time they stripped it out (Drum, Weights, Motor) and replaced them. They say next time they will just replace the whole washer with a new one

A sensible solution once the standard warranty has expired, although there are some folk on here that would suggest it is practical for the layperson to attempt to enforce 5-6 year warranty expectations without additional costs.

wow didn't actually realise this thought labour would only be about 50 Max ha ha rather than half the price of the washer not really free

Agree with all the comments - this is an absolute SCAM from Indesit, and the 10 year bit is always in HUGE font - Miele is a different class as their machines DO last - had one for 15 years with no problems!

Indesit are the worst machines you could possibly buy avoid at all costs take it from someone who knows machines

How long have you been paying the £6 a month for?

About 2 and a half years.

The concrete block on top of our indesit washing machine disintegrated within 5 months, when the engineer came out he said it was a common problem, he said it would take around 4-6 weeks for the parts to arrive. Luckily we had purchased it from Co-op who agreed to take it back and exchange it for a different brand. Avoid at all costs.

Are you suggesting that the apparent inherent reliability of a device manufactured in 2000 will be carried forward to any manufacturers' 2015 model line?
Think that most buyers would benefit from stepping back from perceived reliability and look at the practicals. Would a buyer rather pay a premium price for an item that is potentially unlikely to have issues but may (i.e. be unlucky) and then have to pay for equally premium-cost repairs, or pay a smaller upfront fee and a later small ongoing fee knowing that no matter what, any issues would be covered?
My usual approach to buying white goods is to compare the initial cost per warranted year, then look a the likely cost of subsequent breakdown cover compared to selling-on and replacement. For example:
a £500 washer with 5 year warranty is equiv of £100 per warranted year.
If I chose to retain the washer from start of year 6, I may be able to purchase breakdown cover for £72 / year.
Or I could sell at the end of the 5 year period for say £50, and offset that against a new warranted machine, bring my total ownership costs for the original machine down to £90 for each warranted year.
If I saw a particularly good deal for a replacement washer during say the final warranted year, I could achieve a higher selling price for the older device as it would have some attractive warranty left on it for the new owner (assuming warranty is transferable).
Using this approach, buying say an entry-level £300 washer with only 12m warranty leaves too much to chance without spending more inc additional warranty over an arbitrary 5 year period (£300 + 4x£72) than buying a higher-spec'd model with greater inclusive purchase warranty from the outset.
The only issue then is the tolerance of the inconvenience involved with any repair(s).
Juggle the permutations to suit your budget / requirements, but simply buying a brand on the basis of perceived likely reliability with nothing to fall back on if the unfortunate happens, is potentially leaving yourself open to significant cost and inconvenience.
