Best Price on a Decent Washing Machine

5 replies
Found 31st Jan 2010
Hi my best mates washing machine has died and as I have had loads of help from people on here in the past with deals and advice said I would ask the good people of HUKD if anyone is aware of any good deals about at the mo.

It needs to have a decent load capacity a half load and economy wash/short wash function but otherr than that she's not that fussed.

Any help would be gratefully appreciated and rep added

Thanks in advance

ive just bought one from tescos we got candy one for£229 but there is some hotpoint ones for £249 +free delivery the candy one model no, gof?? was highly rated :thumbsup:

If by decent you mean pretty good then you should have a look at the LG 1247. It takes an 8kg load (a lot), has a direct drive motor which is quieter than a conventional one and also leads to a top rated A++ energy efficiency rating and also has a load sensor which which will tell the machine the right amount of water to put in for what has to be washed (the equivalent of an economy cycle but operates with every wash).

There's loads of other stuff too, such as Bio and Medic cycles which are good for stain and detergent removal respectively (good for those with sensitive skin and means you can get away without using non bio washing powder).

Anyway, you may gather that this doesn't come cheap but at £390 with free delivery here ajelectronics.co.uk/Vie…490 it's not bad at all.

Might be worth checking the measurements of the one to be replaced. Mine fits into quite a tight area and depth was important so it didn't stick out. Most washing machines are typically 85cm high and 60cm wide, but depth varies. Many standard washers will be 59 or 60cm in depth, but I needed 57cm or less which limited my choice unless I relocated the machine. In the end I decided to give LG a go (at 55cm). If I had been able to choose any in the £300 - £400 range, it would have been a Bosch or if lucky, a Siemens. Hotpoint, Hoover, Candy, Indesit, Beko are all cheaply made and much of a muchness. It depends how much it is going to be used too. A family may have it on daily, even several times daily, but a couple maybe only twice a week so you may get longer out of a cheap machine anyway.
