Great spec for the price. Had ours delivered on Friday. Time will tell whether its reliable but very pleased so far. Not mentioned on Currys site but also 5 year parts guarantee when registering the warranty (according to sticker on the front of the machine) Was an unexpected bonus, for what it's worth.

Purchased this last year. Didnt last. Avoid. Cheap price but prob will last about a year.

good price, just better more expensive out there. big up the Samsung range

It's very risky to buy indesit. Don't waste your money and do some research first. Way too many breakdowns and recalls to consider them.

Oh and the 5 year parts warranty isn't worth the paper it is written on, they just rob you blind with labour costs.

Indesit have been on watchdog recently for poor products. I wouldn't go near them.

I bought an Indesit direct drive about four months ago, after having looked at the reviews on reevoo, and it's been brilliant. Very quiet, clothes come out clean, fresh, and dryer (1400) than the 1600 it replaced. It's only 7kg, but look online and you'll see it's the large drums and fast spin speeds which cause failure. Also have a 10 year warranty on the DD motor.

It is Indesit poor quality standards that cause failure.

Had the Indesit 9kg for just over 12 months repair man has been out 4 times to repair,5 year parts warranty is a joke too still costs £109 for them to come out or they try to sell you the monthly insurance £15 a month then there is over a 2 week wait for a repair man.Pay the extra get something decent not an Indesit COLD

I have a hot point machine which is now over 4 years old,monthly insurance is only £5 a month so think your £15 is a bit ott,have used it twice so far and repair man was out within 2 days.


If you have had to have it repaired within the first year you shouldn't be paying anything for repairs!
I never take these extended insurance things out on products but decided to with this machine as it was over £500 at the time,glad I did take it in the end.

I'm so sorry but I'm an idiot - I wrote my comment above (trying to be helpful), saying how good the Indesit direct drive is - and I don't know why I thought it was an Indesit, other than that our fridge is, but the washing machine is actually an LG. I'm very embarrassed.

Incidentally, out fridge / freezer, which IS an Indesit, is rubbish. Had to buy a fridge thermometer, as we have to adjust the thermostat every week. Indesit is rubbish.

I shall consider myself educated! How much do you charge per hour for clothes licking?

The 3 repairs carried out in the first 12 months were covered the one last week wasn't they wanted £109 but no repair could be done for 2 weeks then tried to sell me the insurance at £15.92 which covers parts and labour,got local guy to repair it in the end.Who is your insurance with as Domestic General also £15

Really wouldn't ever touch Indesit ever again. Lied to by repairs team. Bearings went in just over a year on the poorly built machine. Two call outs under warranty. As mentioned before the 5 year parts warranty is a joke when the labour costs an arm and a leg. These machines are a false economy and it pays to get a brand with a realistic parts and labour warranty.

...especially after a hard days muckspreading X)

Maybe I'm at odds with most of the posters here but I am very happy with my Indesit machines! The first I got was a tumble dryer - I went to John Lewis to buy a Hotpoint to replace an older model; as I was about to order it the assistant pointed out to me that Hotpoint also own the brands of Indesit, Cannon by Hotpoint, Creda and Ariston, and that the Indesit machine was exactly the same machine inside as the slightly more expensive Hotpoint model. Now, after 4.5 years of intensive use (several loads of laundry dried every day) I haven't yet had to use the 5 year warranty I bought. I also bought an Indesit washing machine 3 years ago - it happily does 3-4 loads every day and has been the most problem free machine I have ever had. Maybe I'm lucky or the rest of you are just unlucky, who knows?

It is domestic and general just checked my policy and its actually £6.15 a month,did pay last years one upfront so was a bit cheaper then.

our Bosch has just packed up after 2 1/2 years., even the 'better ' makes aren't so good as they used to be.

good price for this one , not worth spending £200 to get the Bosch repaired

I work for Currys and my colleagues in white goods prefer to call these Indesh*t. Awful reliability with customer complaints massive. Suppose you could always buy the machine and have the whatever happens care plan to make the sales colleagues day

Nothing wrong with Indesit.

My first el-cheapo one lasted 7 years fault free until it started leaking water. Instead of the repair nightmare I just bought another, slightly higher model but still sub £200.

Six years later its still going strong, never needed an engineer or anything.


I charge 20p per item licked both sides till clean.Heavily soiled items are a no go sorry.If your interested drop me a line

My old bosch was without doubt the best washer ever and was still going strong after 10 years with not one fault.Bloody unreal.Fancied a new fancy pants jobby so bought an lg and im very pleased with the build quality and 2.5 years in still going strong.Not sure what the experts think but im happy.Every indesh1t product ive bought hasent lasted long.No offense to the poster youve done better than ive done on here.

So 'only' £5/month = £60/year x 4 years = £240 = price of a new machine SO FAR. What's so good about that?

Nope,only paid the insurance for two years and the first year was £40 as i paid it upfront.My machine was over £500 when buying. It is used a lot so at the time I thought it was worth it and it has been. As my other post says I never usually take the extended insurance out but glad I did with the washing machine plus my other appliances this time.
If it was to break down now after 4 years of intensive use please tell me where I could get a replacement for £100???

My washing machine,tumble dryer,dishwasher,fridge freezer and even my cooker are from the same Hotpoint range and we all quite expensive.they are all apart from the fridge freezer covered which includes accidental damage. I broke my dishwasher by accident and ended up being given a new one,worth the £35 I had paid up until then in insurance.
The insurance does give you the same machine,so got the newer one from the same range.

We will be renewing our kitchen in a couple of years so will probably change all the appliances so will then stop paying insurance,by then I think I will definitely have had my monies worth with my washing machine so can't really complain.

Your reply is irrelevant!

I bought my Indesit on August 9 2012 ... today it has broken. Of course, they don't want to know as the guarantee ran out a matter of days ago. As others have mentioned above, I wouldn't ever buy Indesit again ... wish I had taken note of similar messages when buying this last year, I recall one person dubbing it Indes*it and given its unreliability I would have to agree.

Had an Indesit for around nearly 8 years now. Never had a problem with it.

Lucky you but a sample of one is meaningless - the wider evidence out there is they are very poor.

The ECO tag is misleading. It is rated A+ for efficiency which is not the best and this is the reason for the reduced price of this machine. Better to pay a bit more so you save money on your bills.

It's still pretty good as far as its electricity and water usage stands, you're right it's not as good as A+++ but considering this machine probably has a lifespan of under 1000 cycles it won't last long enough for the slight difference to add up to much. The real drama is that in order to get the A rating a cheap appliance has to sacrifice other things that affect the performance. Cheap washing machines get the rating by using very little water, this extends the wash cycle times massively and of course if they get even slightly knackered they are pretty prone to rinsing really badly and leaving detergent in the fabric.
