OK, this looks good for a few reasons;
1. spoke to a specialist who recommends indesit, hotpoint and zanussi as they have 'stepped their game up in recent years'. Suppose it's just his word though.
2. This model appears in the Guardian's list of 6 washing machines to buy -->‌ theguardian.com/mon…als
3. Although it's quite cheap anyway, I can't find this cheaper anywhere else including the most competitive alternatives including AO and Currys
4. There should be 2% cashback
5. Delivery is free and you get a 60 minute time slot

Looks a good deal, thanks.

I've had a zanussi for 11years now. Have never had any problems with and would def buy their brand again

op makes some very good points (2-5) so based on that, if you are gonna buy this machine then this is a great post, hot from me

That statement is about as relevant as a cheese sandwich to this thread, lol

my eldest 2 sisters have Hoover washing machines, my sis younger than me has a Hotpoint (replaced after 2 yrs cos it broke down) Myself and my youngest sister ( yes I have 5 sisters) have Indesit qashing machines and I have to say I regret buying an Indesit washing machine even at 70° some clothes still come out with stains and I have to re wash them ( OCD ) Where as the Hoover w/machines my sisters have are absolutely brilliant at washing at low temp and always get stains out (mud, food etc)
also after less than 1 month after I bought the Indesit 2 of the plastic paddles came off ( I only put in 1/2 load ) engineer had to screw paddles back on with rivet screws ( 1 of which has gone rusty )
Ive also used a Zanussi in a place I lived also found it to be really good at getting stains out but not destroying clothes, fading or bobbling clothes.
The indesit has caused bobbling on alot of my childrens clothes
so after it breaks I WONT be purchasing another Indesit ( but sods law, it will probably last a lifetime )
hope this helps anyone hus thinking if buying an Indesit but is unsure, I would say spend a bit more and get a Hoover Bosch or if you can afford a miele washing machine
btw the engineer said the paddle problem quite common..

for this price if you need a new washer and on a budget if you get a few years out it great any longer bonus. will help some one out I'm sure

update - cashback tracked, the sum total of £3.60 WINNING

Disposable washing machine, Buy, then buy another after it breaks. It will end up in a landfill within a few years.

Indesh*t is what My washing machine engineer friend called it. Take what you like from that.

Good price for basic machine if you don't mind throwing away and buying new when it breaks.

According to which the similar but not identical IWSC51251ECO is OK and gets a score of 66%. They say the downsides are that its slow and uses a fair bit of energy and water. They paid £199, so sounds like a fair, if not brilliant deal if you need a cheap washer...heat from me

How long is a wash cycle? I went to buy a new Hotpoint a couple of weeks ago and it took THREE HOURS to do a wash. Needless to say I didn't buy it.

The problem being these fail much sooner than a lot of others, I've had a truly horrible experience of Hotpoint products, It's a good price for a washer but I personally wouldn't buy one unless I was desperate.

But this is Indesit not Hotpoint! Do you have personal experience of this product? I don't t, thats why I quoted Which in my initial imput. Which say its an OK machine and if you need one and only have a couple of hundred quid, its a fair buy.

At least its recyclable so in 20 months when it dies and costs more than the original price to repair it can be made back into tin cans.

Had an Indesit similar to this one. It died yesterday (after 6 years).

Inde**** and Hotpoint are exactly the same company selling cheap disposable short life products.

Same company, They're just rebadged, Same internal parts, Come out of the same Polish factory using the cheapest available materials.

Not saying this is a bad buy, I think it's fair value for this rubbish but if you care about the environment then it might be wiser to buy a better washer, i,e Bosch, Miele etc..

Plus in 15 years there's a good chance your Miele will still be performing well but this Indesit will be long dead and recycled back into tin cans.

I pretty much agree with shauneco - i.e. Bosch is still potentially a good brand IF you can find a German manufactured machine, but most Bosch these days are made outside of Germany from the same parts as the cheapies. Miele are properly made, but expensive. After my share of Electrolux/Indesit/Zanusi disasters I went Korean for my last machine. I was very tempted by a Samsung but ended up with an LG. So far so good.

I'm not voting on this. I suspect this is a good price for this machine (so your deal deserves to be hot) but unless Indesit has substantially raised their game I won't be buying another Indesit again.

Don't know about the Miele washing machines, but the dishwasher (OK, entry model) that arrived on Thursday was made in the Czech Republic

I've had an indesit washing machine for the past 14 years with no problems at all , it's not used every day though

You would be far better off with the Beko model at £184.99. Much more reliable. According to Which more reliable than AEG and Siemens and has a five star reliability rating like Miele and Bosch.

ao.com are very good and competavely priced and do free next day delivery plus £20 of another item if bought on the same order.

Edited by: "paulandpam1" 14th Sep 2014

I'm not a Beko fanatic or anything but this model;

ao.com/pro…spx

Is only £185 at ao plus you get another £10 cashback and there is 2% at quidco. Meaning close to £170 delivered for a five star reliability rated model. Ok only 5kg instead of 6kg loads but a much better choice than a indesit/hotpoint for reliability.

A little update on the whole transaction. Ordered on Friday, delivered on Sunday with an hour slot offered. Delivery was on time and the delivery men unpackaged the item. When they did, there was a massive sticker that said 'activate your 5 year parts guarantee'. £3.60 cashback too. Granted this is not a Miele & never will be but by heck this is a deal.

5 year parts guarantee is not the same as 5 years parts and labour. Ok it may be beneficial if the motor goes but you may still find labour rates extremely high from indesit/hotpoint service engineers. Check the minimum call out fee as it may be surprisingly high.

The 5 year parts guarantee is the biggest rip off you'll ever find.
If you look at their terms and conditions they'll charge you a call out fee of more than £100 if I remember correctly and then and only then will they give you the free part which may cost pennies to buy.

Still debating LG direct drive one @ 299 quid on ao website or the samsung £390 one which comes with 5 years parts/labor cant decide !
