Found 4th Jul 2009
Hi All,
My Indesit WD12 finally gave up after 8 years.
I've got 3 kids, so am doing 2 loads a day and also my work clothes. The wife doesn't want a washer dryer again as it doesn't seem to do it's drying job properly.

Heard good things about John Lewis so was looking at this - johnlewis.com/230…spx
Any thoughts on it or any other recommendations?

Got a budget of £500 max.

8 years is good,I'm on my 2nd washing machine since I lived in this house 8years,the 2nd one I bougth had about 3 years,I do buy litrally the cheapest though,no £500 budget,maybe if I spent more,they last longer for me!

Also will say J/L price match if you find the item cheaper in a shop,don't think they do online websites?,let them know,you need order over the phone though for the price match,least that's what I did for tv.

Its a 3 year guarantee with John Lewis Machines, just took delivery today of the 1400 spin version of this model, for £399, havent used it yet, but looks good

Thank you all for your replies.

The 1400 model is pretty much the same when compared to the 1600. Does 200rpm more justify an extra £100??

I've just realised that I can get some vouchers from work via our reward scheme. These'll help loads.

By the way, how do I add rep for you guys??

I've always found Bosch to be a good reliable make,
This is the one I bought about a month ago and I'm really happy with it so far.

my machne is a 1600 spin and i never use that spin, the most i use is 1200, so i wouldnt spend more on a higher spin

higher spin speed = more energy use = more of your hard earned going to thieving energy companies.
Bring back mangles LOL

I have a 1600 spin machine, but rarely use it at 1600. For normal washes I use 1400, or if the entire wash is towels then I'll sometimes use 1600.
To answer your question, I would say an extra 200rpm doesn't justify an extra £100. :thumbsup:

Used our new John Lewis model 3 times today for the first time, each time on 1400 spin, amazing! The clothes are nearly dry compared to our last machine that only had a 1000 spin and the machine is really quiet. Definatelyy recommend their own make
