Don't worry about the warranty, as under consumer law an item HAS to last for a reasonable amount of time. 0 to 6 Months in, and the company has to prove it has no fault...6 to 12 months +, and you need to show the machine is at fault. To do this, you get an independent report, and if it's in your favour?, the COMPANY must reimburse you the cost. So... the machine costs £179 (call it £180) and say it has a life expectancy of 6 years? that makes £30pa. If it dies in year 2 (so 1 year outside warranty) through no fault of the user, you would be expected to contribute say...£60, as you will have had this much value/use from it...like a rental, so a replacement would cost you £60, or you should get a £120 refund.
Even if they offered the extra parts warrranty they charge a fortune for labour over £100 on their other models. But anyway as many on here say it’s landfill in a years time, shocking products, shocking customer care from all of the brands in the same stable and after the dryer fiasco it’s a wonder there are any.....left to buy their products. But hey they are cheap so let’s keep buying them.
I got this deal for £159 delivered plus a £10 Argos voucher, https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/bush-7kg-1200-spin-washing-machine-159-delivered-argos-2947552 happy with my purchase and very much like the daily 60 wash program, 60 minutes at 60celcius plus final 1200 spin, clothes come out nice and fresh and hardly any creases. I know the above deal is 1400 spin but I find that 1400 spin speed stretches my cotton items especially t-shirts etc, plus 1200 spin is far easier on the bearings, Motor and belt so machines tend to last a bit longer.
At this price point, grab a Beko.
