Zanussi 7160p washing Machine £239 at Currys (online)

36
Found 11th Apr 2014
Have been looking out for a reduction in this machine from it's over-inflated price of £399. Seems quite good for a machine with 7kg capacity and a top spin speed of 1600rpm.

I have had fantastic service from my old Zanussi machine but do know that modern ones may not be of such high quality( will find out soon as I've just had this one delivered). Installation and removal service seemed pretty good value at £20 too.

Sounds great to me .............

I am in market for new machine so signed up to which trial. This gets pretty poor review commenting that it is noisy and isn't great at washing cottons. The review is based on a price if 399, however.

Bargain for a 1600 machine though.

I bought a zanussi washing machine after my dad recomended them to me (he repairs washing machines for a living), and my machine is 4 years old and is used atleast twice a day and i,ve never looked at it, zwf12070w1 is my model, i would definatly buy 1 again, Makes to steer clear of are hotpoint, whirlpool, hover, beko, indesit,

7160p that's one hell of a resolution!!

Our Beko finally bit the dust on Wednesday,it first went wrong ,one month after warranty expired but I managed to keep it going over the years by replacing the brushes as and when.however on Wednesday it went up in a cloud of smoke.utter guff.hope this zanussi does the trick...

The missus is after buying a cheap washer drier instead.

I am clueless.

Just ordered our old one just packed in and this seems the best for the price at the moment.

Our Indesit started smoking tonight, spotted this on the Currys website and then came here to check for the best deals.

Ordered!

My hotpoint gave up the ghost last night. Searched HUKD for deals and saw this. Was already looking at it on Currys, this deal confirmed the choice. Ordered. Thanks OP.

This may be obvious but what's that filter bit inside where in one picture they putting something in there? Is that where the Calgon tablet would go?

Lol so all the other makes are crap? He or you dont work for Zanussi?

7160P?

thats some screen resolution!

I think it is an excellent price for a 1600rpm and 7kg washing machine with a display!:)

My Hotpoint is on it's way out, the bearings are going so sounds like a plane is taking off when spinning. It's lasted me over 5 years though with only one breakdown which I fixed myself using a part I bought on the net.
This time though I'm going for 5 year warranty I think.

Not a bad price, shame this wasn't on offer like 7-8 days ago. Ended up getting a 6KG 1600 spin washer for £229 though Indesit. Zannussi would have matched the cooker though.

Same with my Hotpoint Aquarius except it is 13 years old and no breakdowns. I'm looking at an updated version at £250 on AO but need to ascertain whether I can stack our existing Aquarius tumble dryer on it using the Hotpoint adapter as it is at present

If that's the case you'd think they'd offer more than a 5 year guarantee.

Do NOT do it. Only trouble, whatever the brand.

I know this is more than the deal and so in no way is it a comparison but for a machine with 5 years warranty you could do a lot worse than go for a £360 ecobubble from john lewis. I bought one recently and it had a door fault (this could have been expected according to the reviews but I took a chance) so it was replaced. By way of apology and for leaving me without a washing machine until the next delivery I received £50 refund (not vouchers, cash to the card!). I am looking to buy another for another property and I will likely go for the eco bubble again and hope for the door issue

For the record, the ecobubble is very impressive with it's bubble tech, quiet spin (up to 1600), and super low operating temp. Big 7kg-er as well.

*10 year guarantee

I was actually quoting their site, they claim their machines have an expected life of 20 years of normal use

Just came across this one (quite pricey) and noticed 2 years guarantee but then you can claim an extra 8 years on top.

Personally I think I'd rather get a new one before then and spend less. I'm happy changing every 5 years so as long as has a warranty for that long and not too much up front that's fine. Eg Samsung eco bubble £400ish with 5 year warranty, works out at £80 per year or £6.66 per month. If it lasts longer than the warranty then that is a bonus.

Well, I'd rather take the results of large owner surveys (eg Which?) than the personal opinion of 'your dad'. They say BEKO is good, Zanussi (and others) are not. BEKO reliability is up there with the likes of Bosch and other middle-market machines.

Seems to me it's a complete luck of the draw where reliability is concerned. For every happy customer there's an unhappy one. This also seems to apply to dryers and fridges etc too.

If I worked as a washing machine repair man I would definitely be recommending people buy the unreliable brands! Heck if everyone started buying Miele's with 10 year warranties I wouldn't be getting a lot of work!

Thats the filter, if you put coins through the wash by mistake they get caught in there. Or it can build up with fluff over time so you need to rinse it. The picture is showing the filter itself being removed you don't put anything else in there. Calgon would go directly in the drum or in the drawer.

Personally I think there is a sensible middle ground between buying a bottom end product that is built down to a very low price and buying an excessively expensive model that may only be 1 or 2% more reliable than the much cheaper brand below. There have been offers on this site for I think a high spec Panasonic with a 6 year guarantee included for £380 and a high spec Samsung for £300 with a five year guarantee. Also do you need a super high rpm or additional features? Sometimes the more basic models from good quality manufacturers are actually more reliable than their mid or high level models. Miele washer dryers are quite unreliable (as are most washer dryers) and they only offer a 2 year warranty on those.

Looks like from about £300 to £450 there are a range of decent spec models from major manufacturers, including Samsung, Panasonic, AEG, Siemens etc which include a 5 year warranty.

All washing machines can fail from all manufacturers, they are highly mechanical products. It seems sensible to ensure you get an extended warranty. Better to buy a washing machine at £300 with 5 years warranty than another at £230 with only 2 years warranty. Yes you can extend the warranty with a third party but you normally get a much better deal with warranties that are supplied by the manufacturer in value terms.

Ah that's a bit better. Just remember seeing that and a 5 year guarantee in Currys.

As an aside this machine also appears to be a Currys exclusive model and regularly appears at this price in their sales.

Thanks that makes sense.

Got this delivered yesterday. Howevere when it starts a high speed spin it starts shaking and moving all over the place. It seems flat as per the instructions. Anyone?

What sort of floor is it on?
Some machines don't like floating floors or some surfaces.

Has it been levelled and have the feet locked.

assume the travel bolts have been removed

It is sitting on laminate flooring.
It certainly looks level.

Currys unpacked it for me, will check the travel bolts - that is probably it! Thanks.

Check the feet are all locked. set the back two and make the final adjustments on the front.
(there are locking nuts that need to be tightened)

It should not rock in any direction, to check level really need a spirit level, but as long as all 4 feet are grounded should be OK.

Feel such a dobber, HAVE NOW removed three bloody large holding bolts, got it on again now, will report back when the spin begins ...

Thanks for your help getmore4less

And a 900 rpm spin of extreme smoothness! Lesson learned. Thanks again mate!

Expired.

Original Poster

Sorry - didn't realise it had gone back up ( though not quite as high as the ridiculous £399 they were charging before this). Have clicked on 'expired' now so hope that's the right thing to do!

No it's still not showing as expired - can someone help please?
