Now thats what I call a washing machine, bloody nora!

One positive thing about this washer - it looks nice!
As for a washing machine - it is absolute crap.Tends to breakdown frequently and Samsung warranty is a joke.They will find millions of excuses not to fix it under warranty,so be warned.
Be careful with reviews as they are done for money these days...

What site for cash back?

Well I hope it doesn't cause me any problems - I can't be paying out Miele kind of money so my safest bet is to go for a machine with a long warranty. When I called them out about my American style fridge/freezer they repaired it no problem so hopefully all will be okay.
Do you have this machine yourself, I didn't see any particularly bad reviews about it anywhere?
Thanks x

Edit: it says from an eligible retailer. not sure if you use the above retailer that you will be eligible? as cant see no mention of it on the website?

Has to be a Authorised UK Samsung retailer

My mate has one, and only problems with it. First fault-bubble generator has gone,error code on screen,washing machine didn't start. Samsung fixed that,but it took 4 weeks and requested £49.50 to pay. No warranty cover,as friend must been misusing washer?!?
Second fault: Squeaking noise when washing.And very loud,annoying noise. Again, Samsung fixed that,but for £102.85;no warranty on that,they said it must been overloaded frequently...Latest fault- no spinning cycle. This was fixed for free,but again it took 3 weeks.
So if you can live without washing machine for 3-4 weeks frequently- maybe 5 years warranty is good for you.
As for reviews,I don't read them,they made for money.

You need to change title as i checked with live help, they said : sorry we are not authorised dealers

Aww that's lame I have already paid and everything
Think the cheapest I saw elsewhere was £574 so with cashback that would be £474, guess I may as well leave my order as it is...
Will phone samsung shortly and see what they say or just fill out the cashback form an chance it.
Sorry peeps, didn't mean to mislead anyone
Thanks Andy for finding out that info

It lists 247electronics as a retailer that is not valid for 5 year warranty, that imo does not sound good, also this company have no contact number which is not great, and they have received many a bad review online for their customer service and delivery.
I would personally avoid.

£609 from beyond TV with £100 cash back and 'SAVE40' for £40 off.

Just cancel order OP/ refuse delivery and get refund.

I have the 7kg version of this machine. It's great. Much quieter than my old machine and it washes clothes cleaner and uses less energy thanks to the Eco Bubble tech. The delay timer is a useful feature too.

Heat added.

Unfortunate experience with the machine but why did your friend give in to this, rather than using legal means to make them honour their guarantee? And you do have to question why that machine kept breaking down - how do you know your friend wasn't misusing it?

Also, your sample of one is insignificant compared with all the reviews out there, even if some allowance is made for bias. You can't dismiss every review by saying it's paid for - that's just daft.

If you want a good reliable washing machine then you need to be looking at direct drive and brush-less machines, LG do a good range and our LG Direct Drive brush-less washing machine has been abused daily for nearly a decade and it's still going strong :-)

I would avoid. I have this machine and clothes are constantly geting ripped/torn. Samsung have been out nurmous times and basicly have sais that we are using it incorrectly (ie overfilling/using the wrong program). This is untrue as we are using the preset programs and surprise, surpise when have tried running with very few clothes inside. It seems the when spinning the clothes they become trapped between the door and seal.
This doesnt happen with every wash but enough times to make you think about waht you are washing. Will never buy another Samsung again & plan to return to Hotpoint.

I think this deal needs to be deleted/expired as not only was the price wrong, but it also doesn't come with a 5yr warranty. (which it says it does in the op description).

Taken from Samsung....
Purchases from auction websites (eg. eBay), from third party sellers on online retailers’ websites (e.g. Amazon Marketplace) or from Electrocentre Ltd (trading online as Electrocentre.co.uk, Digital-Point.co.uk, 247electrical.co.uk) or Ultimate Appliances Ltd and RLR distribution (trading online
as rlrdistribution.co.uk) are excluded.

Worse deal then i thought if it does not even include 5 year warranty, although this is 247 electronics not 247 electrical not sure if same company?

I was thinking about getting one of these, but I've been put off with some of the comments, can anybody recommend a very quiet quality washing machine that isn't a miele (out of my budget).

I've got a year old Samsung, the machine works faultlessly and cleans really well so I'd definitely recommend them.

I had to get John Lewis to price match and then claim the cashback as most Internet retailers are not included in the cash back, I bought the big 12kg washer and with the price match it worked out at £609 then applied for the £100 cashback which comes on a prepaid debit card which I have now received,. Good deal

Machines with brushless motors are quiet during the wash part of the cycle (it's the motor, not the belt, which makes the noise). I've never had a belt snap on a washing machine so I'm not convinced direct drive offers any more reliability.

Are they really any more reliable than belt-driven types? Also, who's to say that a ten year old machine is comparable to a current model?

I owe Zanussi ZWJ14591W JetSystem. It has brushless motor and very quiet,great washing results and no problems for 3-rd year so far.

I have a direct drive LG1403RD washer dryer (9kg/6kg - which is the biggest combination) and it is not only quiet but very stable.

A couple of niggly issues early on but it gets a lot of hammer with no real problems.

If I had room, I'd go for the 12kg washer and a 9/10kg+ dryer.

You can't compare like this. Earlier washing machines were made to last, now they are made just to make money.

Who did you get them to price match against, please? Cheapest I can find the 12kg model is £679

I have confirmed that the 5 year warranty is valid
Cheapest elsewhere is £574 so £474 after cashback, but this deal may be preferable to those who don't like dealing with cashback offers.

sorry thought businesses were always there to make money! you cant use that arguement "They dont make it like they used to!"

generally good manufacturers remain good manufacturers if not they tend to go out of business!

In other words your sample of one went wrong. I'm afraid that's not exactly a ringing endorsement of LG washing machines!
