4 year old washing machine went up in smoke yesterday. Some places £80 call out and no guarantee it could be saved. For 239.99 buying new was a no brainer.

From experience it always more sensible to buy an entry level washing machine from a quality brand than to buy a flagship model from a more questionable one. There is a very useful link here: ukwhitegoods.co.uk

There is only brand I would consider, and that brand is LG. Germany has high manufacturing costs, so whilst a Miele, Bosch or Siemens will be better than most, you're not necessarily getting value. For me, there is only one washing machine brand that hits the sweet spot, and that brand is LG. Why?

Well the next time you pop into Currys, have a really close look at all the washing machines on display. Most have been built to a low price and you'll notice this by the lighter weight, the quality of the components e.g. door latch, rubber seals etc. For a family using the washing machine on a daily basis the washing machine will last from typically 3-6 years before needing repairs. The build quality isn't good enough.

When you look at an LG washer, one thing that you'll notice straight away is the quality of the finish. You will not find is light weight, creaky plastics. Look at the door latches and the door hinges. All metal build.

You will notice that LG machines are priced in the mid to upper segment. However, even their cheapest models have high build quality. This in turn means that you have a machine that is exceptionally reliable, doubling its lifespan. I've had two LG machines and each has lasted nearly 10 years of daily use before needing to be repaired.

The noisiest thing about an LG washer is the water fill and the water swishing around in the drum. There is hardly any motor noise at all. Even on high speed spin, the noise level will not drown out the TV or a conversation. Vibration during the spin cycle is minimal too. If you have the optimal level floor surface, you can even balance a 50p coin on top of the washing machine during the spin cycle without it falling off. It's that good.

Last but not least, they are simple to operate, they clean and spin dry well and a sub £400 model with 8KG and 1400 spin speed will give you many years of happy laundry.

Now then, do you still want to buy a Hoover?

Why is the default spin on washing machines 1400 these days? They were all 1600 when I got my last one, which has unfortunately just flooded my kitchen.
Just hope we get some new clothes off Santa as it’s not getting delivered till Wednesday and we’ll be lifting by then.

It’ll be like holidays in here. Washing clothes in shower by hand and drip dry. Just no balcony. Thing was washing but not spinning - which was manageable but then filled kitchen with putrid smoke.

Because 1600's tend to leak

The likelehood is it won't have spun at 1600 spin for very long, I was told by an engineer that 1600 was juts too fast for most machines, a 1400 Miele for example is probably more efficient than a 1600 Hotpoint/Hoover at removing water from clothes. I would only buy this machine If I could extend the warranty
Hoover is one the brands of dryer that are a fire risk.
Your washer went up in smoke.
Do you want new Hoover washing machine?
1400rpm is the most efficient spin speed for extracting water. 1600rpm washers just wear the bearings and motor out faster.

We'll need Sherlock Holmes to investigate this.
Don't have kids and your washing machine will last forever.
Not Reliable,. My friends was written off after 3 years,. They were using it every other day. Don't waste your money! Buy a better brand eg, LG, Samsung or beko.

Trust me you will need the extended warranty. The build quality of these machines are truly awful....
Hoover is a very poor choice! If you're not into premium pricing territory go for a low/mid range Bosch or a BEKO - that's where the best price/reliability balance lies.

No hassle?, Erm it is when you have to call them out every other month, Sometimes having to wait a week or more while they wait for a part to come etc..

The mid to upper range Bosch and Siemens appliances are fine, but the entry level Bosch washers are not manufactured in Germany, nor are they built well. Beko are better than average in the budget sector, but for sheer pound for pound quality v price, I still stand by LG.

Steer clear of Hoover or Candy washing machines they are owned by the same parent company and I work at a white goods store we are constantly fixing Hoover and candy machines they look great with all their electronic flashing lights but this is what causes all of their breakdowns the electronic board fails on both these machines nearly 80% of the time. They are so renowned for it that we don't even buy them to sell on.
Edited by: "BLADESMAN1889" 24th Dec 2017
I will say this again, please don't buy a Hoover. My drum has been banging like mad within the second year and now (yesterday) it totally failed!
I asked a local guy who repairs these and he said unfortunately hoover are bad and you cannot replace them!
Im so annoyed with Hoover. Mine was the dynamic metal door 8kg

Voted Cold, thanks
I purchased a hoover washing machine 6 months ago and put the deal on here. The common theme from the comments were that hoover is not reliable so looks like a lot of people had bad experiences with Hoover and they are probably right.

It is early days for me and i currently have a small family so machine gets used two days a week at most.

What i can say is that my parents have an LG that was purchased 2009 and it is still going strong.

These things are disposable nowadays and that's the way to look at them. The price has never gone up over the years relative to everything else and the build quality gets worse and worse as they find new ways to cheapen the build of materials.

If Currys can knock off £110 then you know the real price of this machine is about £239.99 because profit margins are very slim, Currys cannot take off £110 without either making a huge loss or more likely still making profit on a product that was originally way over priced. Classic Currys/Argos tactic, add £100 to the price for 28 consequetive days in the last 6 months then take off the £100 and they can call it a sale price.

I've been out the game for a while but consumer electronics and white goods like this would rarely have a profit margin or more than 20% and probably less these days.

One thing I will say about Hoover washing machines. Historically they are consistent. Consistently unreliable for the past 50 years!
Another vote for direct drive LG washing machines.
Had one since 2006 and never had an issue with it, great washing machines.
Anyone been let down by Currys' incompetent delivery system?
