Siemens WM14E460GB Washing Machine + five year warranty +£100 saving. £399@ John Lewis@

Found 26th Aug 2013
Saw this in my local John Lewis seems like a good deal with the 5 year guarantee and the £100 pound saving. Only 7kg and the water consumption a little high but Siemens are a quality make.


Save £100 & 5 year guarantee
The Siemens WM14E460GB washing machine makes a great choice for the family home with a large 7kg capacity, multiple functions for various fabric types and sleek electronic controls to make programme selection easy.

The varioPerfect setting allows you to choose between a quicker wash time or a more energy efficient cycle for every programme and a 1400rpm spin speed ensures clothes are left drier after washing.

The iQ drive motor delivers energy efficiency, speed and durability, whilst the antiVibration design provides more stability and quietness, so you can put a wash on any time day or night. This Machine has an A rating for wash performance too.

The Siemens WM14E460GB has 15 programmes, including:
Dark wash
Delicates
Wool
Sensitive
Mixed fabrics
Outdoor

Plus, there is a 15-minute quick wash for small loads that is great for those moments when need your clothes in a hurry. This machine has a function to reduce creases, to make ironing easier, and with a fantastic A++ rating for energy it will cut running costs too.

I have this model and it is worth every penny. Hot hot hot!!!

Excellent timing. I've been looking for a good deal on a washing machine.

Bought Siemans IQ300 last year 8kg ... Really good machines, quite and washes really well. Also clothes come out dryish even on 1000 spin ... The 5 year warranty as well... Really nice machine. I know this is a 7kg machine but I am sure its enough for most uses. I can really only speak highly of this brand... Good buy too...hope this helps someone...

any idea what iq it is is it the 300 or 500, cant find any info on it

Same make as Bosch and Neff, so check out prices of their equivalent models too

I wouldn't mind going for this but the programme times quoted on the Siemens site are a bit worrying.

"Programme time:60 °C cotton programme 192 min at full load 192 min at partial load and 40 °C cotton programme 188 min partial load"

This is a standard running time of a Bollywood movie!

im holding out for a iq 500 as told motor better

I have the 360 version, not sure what the difference is, but im guessing there's not much. It's an excellent washing machine though, clothes come out very clean and extremely dry. Though if it's the same, the buttons are touch sensitive and on my version there's no way to lock them, so if you lean against it or walk past and lightly touch them it can easily change or pause the cycle which is really annoying, they might have fixed it in this version.

As for Bosch being similar, i believe Siemens is the more premium brand of them and Bosch has now been demoted to the lower budget machines, most of which aren't made in Germany, mine says 'made in germany' on the front, not sure about this one?

Hehe... Siemen... Hehe (_;)

Looks like a good deal. Maybe a silly question but why does it matter if the water consumption is a little high?

Same parent company - different models and different reliability.

I need a silver washer to satisfy the missus. Any ideas?

Quite aside from the water consumption in itself, the more water it uses, the more water you have to heat for the hot washes, so it means more energy consumption as well. There has been some recent research on cold washes (30 degrees C) that found some pretty nasty bacteria would survive and transfer from your underwear to your tea towels (for example) so sort your washes if you are saving energy.

Is this an old model , i thought all siemens were 8 kg ?

Is it really the case that all maching machines now useless? I am looking for one that can do a full load proper 90degC wash in around 90 minutes. I don't care about energy or water consumption. Any ideas?

Lots of good reviews on currys website - going to purchase now. Thanks!

I was told in order of quality it was siemens Neff bosch by engineer, I have siemens dishwasher, Neff oven never had problem, after a second washing machine, you cant grumble with 5yr warranty.

Silver spray can will be a cheap option. hahaha.

plastidip the washing machine in silver...sorted

Have a Bosch washing machine and dishwasher. Both very good. Have a cheapie Turkish made BEKO dryer, and despite having no faith whatsoever in it, it's been fine for same length of time, remarkably, BUT when it does go, it'll be a German made dryer to replace it

My Bosch is the same, but press the 'Speed Perfect' button and a standard 40 deg cotton wash drops to under an hour (it looks like this has the same function).
Voted hot btw

ordered, thanks.
BTW, any fridge offer?

Ah, silly me. I was forgetting that England and Wales have water meters; thankfully we don't in Scotland. Scottish Water is still state owned so no profits to be made making it cheaper and is billed with your council tax. YAY!

Back to 2 year guarantee.

Back to 2 year guarantee.



Ditto. I was really considering it if it had a 5 year guarantee, but 2 years is a major change in my "peace of mind".

The 5 year warranty still applies but is no longer mentioned on JL website for some reason, the offer goes well into 2014, you have to register with Siemens with your receipt from John Lewis.

It's no longer mentioned on their site, but when you go instore the machines details still show the 5 year warranty with Siemens (via redemtion). . For peace of mind you could ring John Lewis for confirmation rather than take my word for it.

I called JL but they denied it had ever been 5 years on their website. I didn't know about the redemption then, but they didn't mention it even after going off to consult an expert.

Anyone know the cycle times for a proper 90deg and 40deg cotton wash? With the speedperfect function on. Siemens don't seem to know.

Fortunately I took a screen grab before they removed the warranty offer off their website, even though it is still valid.

Well played

I'm not sure what to go for between the 3-400 mark. Still shopping around.

thanks guys.
It appears they have put the extra 3 years back on the page.


Special Offer: claim an extra 3 years guarantee

£399.00


It works by filling in a form siemenscustomerservice.co.uk/sie…spx that is linked to via the JL site, once you have received it.
It requires serial no, purchase date etc.

I really need a new machine, so I will seriously consider this.

If anyone actually has this machine can you please tell me how long the 90 and 40 deg cottom programs take in speedperfect mode.

Thanks!
