no they are like BEKO only they don't catch fire

So they're the Dacia of washing machines? The biggest issue with these "no-make" appliances is that if they do go wrong, the spares are a sod to get a hold of.
Beko washing machines also don't catch fire that was a very specific range of fridge freezer
I'd have that £199 Samsung over this any day. Parts is probably ok because it's bound to use someone else's parts but figuring out which could be a sod

and who is the warranty with? insurance company backed up by who knows whose engineers
A retailer tried to sell me one of these a while back, telling me it was the factory that made Smeg.
Doesn't take much searching to find plenty of poor reviews though.

I think Gorenje and Smeg fridges used to come from the same factory. I'm not sure about the washing machines.

As mentioned above, Gorenje is a popular brand in other parts of Europe. They make quality white goods but don't seem to have much presence in the UK market (brand snobbery perhaps?) . As for the deal...well this is a mid-tier washing machine for bottom-tier prices, with a 5yr warranty. Hot!
I was just about to buy a Miele WDA111 for £700, this is £220 with a 5 year warranty. If it's any good i'm considering this!
If the EU stoped fixating on A+++ running costs and life cycle cost by insisting on longer warranty all white goods should last 5y.

Washing machines only get their ratings by longer washes at lower temps, many just use the standard wash in real use .
