Glad these brands have served you well.

My family have had quite the opposite experience. The kitchen we inherited from our house builder, was fully equipped with integrated Zanussi appliances. We were pleased not to have any Hotpoint / Indesit appliances, and felt we had acquired quality goods. Sadly the Oven, Washer and Fridge have all failed within 7 years. The fridge in particular, was flimsy, and the internal moulding of the doors, buckled under the weight of regular items such as 2 litre bottles of milk.

My parents were forewarned not to buy Hotpoint appliances. Despite this, and being attracted by the prices and the lure of headline grabbing warranties they purchased a washer, and Fridge Freezer. Both have failed with 6 years, and are not cost effective to repair.

Similarly my in-laws hotpoint washer failed after 4 years (now replaced with a surplus 4 year old LG washer we had)

On the flip side, we install entry level Bosch Appliances in our rental properties. We've had no issues in the last 10 years, all are going strong, with no complaints from tenants - We've had no experience of Beko so can't comment.

Where else can you get a 9kg washing machine for £200? It's all fair and well saying that the machine will break and what not but if you don't have £350+ to spend on a machine, then what? Also, what brand would you recommend?



as above anything really than these or their sister company indesit,on white goods, the saying pay cheap pay twice is something that you can associate with these, the reality is you have a year with no worries, after that they will charge you for the labour, believe this is over £100 a visit (once the machine gets to a certain age its even more expensive) or can be added as a monthly insurance. So don't think of it as a £200 machine think of it as at least £300 for two years, £400 for 3 years and so on. You can get other machines out there for this price with 5 year warranties or you could just pay the £200 and get a local guy to fix it, you might also find it doesn't break and you might be one of the lucky ones. Speak from experience replaced everything when we got a new kitchen, washer engineer was at our house weekly, they had to replace the dishwasher twice after they had the same fault and flooded the kitchen. Fridge was the only thing not to go and we had to replace salad trays and door shelves a few times. In the end we gave up on the dishwasher bought a Siemens for £350 which was £20 more than we paid for the hotpoint, we kept on with the washer and paid the monthly fee until we thought enough is enough and went with an LG. Never had any problems in 5 years with the other appliances, yes its 5 years ago but sadly hotpoint is still the same.

I imagine that's 'brushes' - do you know what they are? Why would you replace it for that?

Anyway, your 12 year old machine bears zero comparison to this one. Have you actually read the thread?

Rubbish machine bought last year , does not spin the 1400 speed,clothes come out wet,add a bit extra and buy something decent

Its definitely a great price, but voted cold. It is a brand I wont go anywhere near though.

As said above the seals tend to break as soon as the 1 year warranty lapses (1 year!) so buy it through a reputable supplier like John Lewis who will provide additional warranty. You will find that the seals are classed as consumables so not covered by their 10 year parts warranty.

However you wont get it at this price in John Lewis and you will need to pay for additional years warranty so this will bump up the price.

Yeah, pretty much 99% of washer dryers are condensers...including this one.

I guess the 10 year parts warranty involves you paying an engineer for their time to diagnose the fault? Someone with some experience may be able to help better than I can here.

any comments on how good this is? thinking of getting one myself



Got mine yesterday, delivery was great, and other one was taken as well. Noticed that when using my previous pipe there was a slight leak, changed to the one supplied and all gone. The machine itself looks great, has lots of programs for all sorts of things, I think reading reviews the only program it's really missing is a silk one. It's practically silent too which is great.

One thing though, when calling to register I was offered to extend the warranty to include accidental/piece of mind for three years. They say that a call out where something considered an accident is to blame (buttons/tissue etc) then you would have to pay the call out charge of £135. The accident cover wavered this, £3.35 a month for 36 months, whilst that's not a lot of money I wanted to speak with my partner about it, told him I would let them know and he became a little pushy saying I had to decide on the call as they couldn't process it after and that I had a month to cancel if I accepted it. Told him not to bother and then suddenly he could give me 16 months free, so I took that instead.

Looks like they now have the 10KG drum model as well, code still working.

In summary, for domestic appliances induction motors are more unreliable, … In summary, for domestic appliances induction motors are more unreliable, cannot be serviced whatsoever, and are far, far more expensive to replace.




I don't think that's true of most domestic appliances, induction motors are commonly used to drive the main circulation pumps of dishwashers, fridge and freezer compressors, and as tumble dryer motors, where variable speed control is not required. Simple cap start/run induction motors used in single phase machinery are virtually bomb-proof too. We've got a 1950/60s pillar drill with its original 1/8 hp induction motor still going strong with just a new pair of silicone insulated fly leads to the field coils and a new start capacitor, but only because the 50s rubber insulation on both had become highly conductive.

I gather that washing machine motors are increasingly likely to use permanent magnets instead of induction for even greater efficiency.

I think the build and design quality of the appliance is a much bigger factor, than its type of motor. I'd probably avoid a direct drive washing machine, but only because the position of the motor means their tubs have to be shorter for the same depth of machine.
Edited by: "melted" 30th May 2016

Yes, I understand how these motors work too, and I place a different emphasis on it. If you design for minimum cost then of course you will have more failures - but if you don't, you have a superior product. It's like warning people off LED bulbs because they have a driver circuit in them - buy decent ones and the benefits shine through.

You also seem to be assuming (on an example of one?) that the drive electronics are built into the motor, making it impossible to replace one without the other. Not for my washing machine: see eBay item 181918065486 (first search hit) for a salvaged drive for £40. Seems a stupid thing to make them one unit from a reliability point of view, considering the vibration the electronics will experience.

Three phase supplies won't help you with a washing machine, nor an efficient air conditioner, because they need variable speed drives.

Its definitely the induction motor. My relative has the same motor in his machine and I swapped them out to test - I agree Induction motors are normally very reliable in industry where 3 phase electricity is standard. But consumers don't have 3 phase AC. The induction motor therefore has on board power components to produce the right phase pattern of AC to turn the rotor by rotating magnetic induction. These must have failed. I am a electronic engineer but the onboard electronics are inaccessible without a complex rig to dismantle the induction motor (unlike a DC motor).

The replacement cost of the induction motor is £145. A replacement normal washing machine motor is about £60.

In summary, for domestic appliances induction motors are more unreliable, cannot be serviced whatsoever, and are far, far more expensive to replace.

I disagree. As I said above, induction motors are not only more … I disagree. As I said above, induction motors are not only more efficient, but they are quieter, simpler and require no maintenance. While the driver is more complicated, there are also power electronic components in the driver of a conventional motor to control its speed. Are you quite sure that the chief cause of failure is motor/controller failure, or other things like drum bearings?



Edited by: "trampjuice" 29th May 2016

These manufacturers seem to build the machines to fail shortly after the … These manufacturers seem to build the machines to fail shortly after the warranty expires. Brush-less induction motors are very costly to replace, because of the added on board complexity, with many large power electrical components which can go wrong. But more inefficient Old fashioned washing machine motors are very simple components and there is much much less that can go wrong with them. I think given the very high failure rate of these machines, I would recommend people to look to buy a machine which may not be AAA+ but simple A rated with a non-induction motor.
