Welcome to your Daewoo washing machine.

Russel Hobbs rent out their name to brand cheap stuff from Daewoo, Vestel etc for the likes of Asda and Tesco.

Save up for a Bosch.

Hot deal.

40 degrees, 1200 spin to be precise

really good price, black is very stylish, well known name, maybe not for washing machines but you could spend 300+ and it might break in a year or two, if I needed one I would be purchasing one right now

Exactly what is rubbish about what I said?

Russel Hobbs do not make washing machines, they just sell their badge to put on cheap brands. It's a fact.

here you go...........

''Once again using the brand name, which is respected and largely trusted by UK consumers, appears to be a way to engender trust with customers that they are buying a reputable product or, to increase the margins on the goods. The fact is, that these products are at the very budget end of the market and whilst we would say that they may suit a single person or perhaps a couple, they are of little use for a family and you should not expect them to last much beyond their warranty period, especially in what is considered to be "high use" of more than 250 washes a year.''

How much is the orig price?

Ha! I can remember a scene where old man steptoe was taking a bath in the kitchen sink.

Spectrum Brands bought Russell Hobbs in 2010, all its products are manufactured in China

It's nice that there are posts for the ladies too on here.

hence lack of jokes about whether this is HD etc.

Best to assume it won't last much beyond warranty and parts are virtually unobtainable. If £85/year for a disposable washing machine suits you then go ahead but it's a very short term approach. My Bosch was less than £100 more and it's still going strong at 5+ years old.

On the basis of "Saving up for a Bosch" we all may as well just wait until we can afford the Miele or an ISE!

Absolutely ridiculous comments. IF someone needs a cheap washing machine NOW then saving up isn't going to help them.

And I hardly believe the "false economy" arguments either. I think this washing machine will be perfectly fine, it has a warranty, sold from a good retailer and will do the job!

The thing to remember is nothing these days is built to last, My hotpoint lasted nearly 9 years & I have had this AEG for just over 2 years & the door has cracked an the computer has been reset twice. My point is that you can take out appliance insurance when the item is purchased to cover breakdowns & I'm lucky I did with my AEG. If you get 4 years out of it your laughing and you will always have consumer law on side if it breaks down after the warranty as it will prove it wasnt fit for purpose. Asda are also a good company when returning items as they are like the Amazon of the high street unlike currys who want to know the far end of a fart.

I don't like the name Russell tbh that's enough to put me off anyway. And Russell Hobbs has never been a name I would associate with quality, reminds me of overpriced crap kettles and toasters made in the far east.

Funny someone else has had an issue with AEG, I had a Lavomat for a while which was amazing, silent, solid and a workhorse. But I wanted a washer dryer and thought I'll get another AEG as the last one was amazing. Bought it from John Lewis, the one with the HUGE LCD screen on the front, looked really fancy but it was a pile of rubbish, I got John Lewis to pick it up, turns out they are not AEG any more but Electrolux.

My mum recently bought an LG Direct drive washing machine and I have to say that's what I will get next, really impressed with it.

This is quite a good price for a washing machine, also Russell Hobbs is a good brand.

Bill Russell and Peter Hobbs (Russell Hobbs) from High Wycombe and Tunbridge Wells England were the first in the world to design the automatic electric kettle back in 1955. They both originally worked for Morphy Richards and Bill Russell help to design the pop-up toaster, the electric iron and the hairdryer. they both went on to form Russell Hobs back in 1952.

Russell Hobbs also designed the world's first fully programmable kettle.

Russell Hobbs also made the first all-plastic kettle.

Russell Hobbs also made the first kettle that used a special flat OPTEC element to boil water in half the time, with a limescale filter.

So who said Russell Hobbs are Rubbish, the two names will always live on as a household name.

Aye Russel Hobbs is a decent brand in my eyes, but these washing machines / dryers are not made by russel hobbs. They just rented out there brand name.

Does anybody actually own one of these? im tempted at that price.

All these facts are truly irrelevant, it's a completely different company now to what it was in 1952! And as many have said, Russell Hobbs don't actually make this machine. Also, your main facts seem to point towards kettles when this listing is for a washing machine...so are you saying because this company did great things with kettles a few years go, that we should therefore trust them with washing machines?

Simple fact with washing machines is that they seem to be very hit and miss unless you spend £600+. I've had a £500 Bosch that lasted 3 years, and a £220 Beko that's been going strong for 6 years and still is. This machine might last you a year, it might last you 5 years, but for the money you can have no complaints either way. I'd just be wary of spare parts should anything go wrong.
