Why so many cold votes? Bad model or bad brand?
All Washing Machine Discounts, Offers and Sale - September 2018
£216 for a one year parts and labour guarantee is not great. With many washing machines including a 5 year parts and labour warranty that would be more sensible. Even many budget models include a 2 year parts and labour warranty. So 18 months in there could be a major fault that is not economically viable to repair and you have to replace the whole washing machine, that seems an un-necessary risk and false economy. The 10 year parts warranty is useless with often cheaper repairs by independent repairers who do charge for the parts such is the Hotpoint labour rates. I think the sensible washing machine purchase at the moment are LG models, very reliable and a full 5 year warranty. Even if you paid £400 for one that is only £80 for each guaranteed year not £216. You might even be able to get one closer to £300.
Getting the unknown error message too
Thank you, washing machine broke this morning and with 4 kids I need one ASAP and at a fab price (party) will be delivered Friday ( as didn’t pay £7 for tomorrow) so can have a few days off (lol) love this site
Keep trying, same thing happened to me. Go on web address from start a few times. Will work eventually.
has above, getting unknown error at checkout
Can you point us in the direction?
Ok for the money, but I would always opt for Direct Drive type, far less breakdowns and last way longer.
Bought this a few months ago from Very for £239, brilliant washer,really quick.Heat added.
Noticed these being put out in Swansea on Friday. Looks like it could be National. Heat (y)
VESTEL - will be Made in Turkey, a very good machine, I have the SHARP branded version and its very good.
This looks identical to my SHARP branded one I bought last week, made in TURKEY by VESTEL I believe. Its a very good machine. I paid £125 delivered for the 6kg SHARP version. Turkey's currency is really down @ the moment so for exports things are very cheap for us Brits. Looking @ the seller I confirm this will be a VESTEL, its the same seller as I purchased from. They are simply a logistics company that deliver orders placed to them that are fulfilled direct by the manufacturer.
Electra used to be the old Electricity Board brand. We had one which was made by Zanussi and served us well. Any idea of the manufacturer for this one? Ah, Google as usual has the answer or rather wiki via Google. It's now yet another Vestel brand name evidently:- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vestel
Applies for 1st S&S order only
How come I can only get it down to 4:25
This one is cheaper, without the addwash door https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/samsung-ecobubble-ww90j5456fx-9-kg-1400-spin-washing-machine-graphitewhite-35910-wcode-currys-3053297
Thanks for the very quick reply! We're desperate for a washing machine especially because the kids have just gone back to school. We'll probably buy this one advertised here.
I've no idea and I purchased from AO.
Hello! When is the next eBay discount day? And which seller will be selling them at £360?
i also posted the standard one at £359 earlier, i guess its up to the individual if they wanna pay for the additional door, some might want it
I see. I was selecting the option to collect in store so that’s probably where I was going wrong. Many thanks indeed.
on the page after you choose a delivery date it says redeem an offer code, and thats where you put the code in
This is probably a silly question but where do you enter the code on the Curry’s website to get the money off? I’m trying to purchase this but for the life of me can’t see where you stick the code in.
Hi guys just wanted to ask has anybody’s order gone through using this Code ? I bought American fridge but they cancelled my order saying this code is not valid but when I go through Currys site order went then I called Currys they said they didn’t receive enough money as I used code hence they cancelled it
Just bought one as my previous ecobubble packed in this afternoon after over 7 years use. The drum support spider has corroded and broken which unfortunately is a common problem. Went through Quidco as getting the extra £10 back on a £50 spend at Curry's this weekend. The part to repair would cost about £90 plus the trouble of fitting myself so for an extra £250 new machine with 5 year warranty
I’m not great a maths but isn’t that 1 wash every day and half roughly. Or roughly 3 or 4 loads a week seems fairy reasonably. I may totally messed the maths on that and be miles out
T&Cs ....114 washes worth . Come on. We use a hell of alot more than that in half a year
Avoid Curries like the plague. Terrible customer service.
How long is a piece of string? Depends on where you live (e.g. Devon vs Orkney!), what kind of washing machine you have (a modern 1400rpm washer will leave your clothes wet but not dripping), what kind of clothes you wash (e.g. a synthetic or linen thin fabric shirt will dry far more quickly than a pair of jeans, towels or other cotton stuff). If you dry indoors, air the room often or your walls will grow mouldy (hint: that moisture on the clothes must go somewhere!).
a basic question , will just Washing machine be sufficient during winter or we need a dryer ? . Are clothes coming out water dripping from Washing machines ? or just wet and can be aired indoors ?
(highfive) I personally can't stand iphones (embarrassed)
Nah that’s like saying I own a piece of soap vs a washing machine. A true analogy will be I own an iPhone 7 for 250 pounds and u buying an iPhone daft x for 1000? (lol) ;)
Only 30 bad reviews and thousands more good ones proves how good this brand is
Having looked at them in store, although it is difficult to tell, I'd have more faith in Hotpoint, and I've owned and had the back off several Hotpoint, and don't rate them at-all.
OK. You win. I accept the absolutely reliable views expressed on Trustpilot. Those people on Which? must, despite what I've always thought and all the evidence, be a bunch of liars. I'll never believe them - or the OED - ever again. By the way.............https://uk.trustpilot.com/review/www.kenwood.co.uk
I take Which? recommendations with a pinch of salt, but at least they are worth reading, which is more than I'd say for trustpilot.
I doubt it can be credited to Which?. Whenever I've looked at appliances in currys I think typically two of each type of their Kenwood branded appliances (currys use the Kenwood brand under licence) are well discounted and the rest are seriously overpriced, and when one offer ends, they switch discounted model. I personally would only touch Kenwood with a metal crusher.
They don't seem too bad that's for sure and a new washing machine for £150 or less is nuts really. If it does a few years then dies it's not the end of the world and if it lasts longer it's a bonus. Some supposed premium brands don't necessarily last that long.
Our Beko is probably the best we've had, including Bosch
At that price, buy two..= 12kg load.
It's bargain basement priced and made by Vestel in Turkey so it's comparable to Beko and any other bottom of the range washing machines.... it's very cheap so I guess if it lasts 3 to 5 years without going wrong it's very good value. But you'll only find out how reliable it is once you've bought one....
This is not the good old Japanese Sharp.it’s just their brand name Vestel from Turkey (or another rubbish company of China) “rented”.
i know, would be better value if it was a washer dryer
Decent machine but stupid price!
2 yr guarantee is a no-no for me .
" .. and is as quiet as our Miele's are! " - how many mieles do you have ?
Noise level (wash): 58 dB(A)Noise level (spin): 77 dB(A) To put it bluntly, there's no freaking way for this to be as quiet as a Miele, unless your Miele washer is 20 years old, with shot bearings and trying to spin dry a brick.
Same price at Currys. £10 Gift Card with orders over £200 at Currys @ Vouchercloud https://www.vouchercloud.com/currys-vouchers
The 15 minute quick wash maximum temperature is 30°c, then you are stuck with a spin at 800. Manual does not state that you can I override either, how does she do it?
Great value but their ‘was’ prices are always a bit dodgy... 22/6/18 - 25/6/18 £249.98 26/6/18 - 4/9/18 £229.97 5/9/18 - £219.97 Is there a reason why listed as a Currys eBay deal instead of Currys? By the way buy 3 get £50 off! (DISCOUNT CODE - £50 off your order when you spend over £600 on two or more large kitchen appliances
This one also from Curry's looks a better deal (10Kg load) and looks very similar , suspect they are both made by the same Turkish manufacturer . https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/logik-l1014wm17-10-kg-1400-spin-washing-machine-white-currys-21997-currys-ebay-3047155
These look like cheap Turkish made Vestal machine's rebadged, as are Curry's own brand Logic machine's.
I still remember the days Kenwood was a decent well respected brand making high quality equipment, nowadays lots of the decent brand names have been bought and used to sell low end goods pretending to be something they're not like this washing machine.
Hotpoint = Inferior main bearings that don't last, cold from me.
I have the 7kg in white and paid not far off this price! Hot!
I wouldn't really worry about it getting hot or cold, it's a decent price for a machine with a good spec, pretty similar to the one I'm using just now. (y)
its cheaper than the last one i posted with the same spec which went hot, this ones seems to be going cold-ish
That's a decent deal, for a machine with the 9kg load capacity, have some heat.
You haven't been keeping up have you? BEKO is the best budget brand out there. Hotpoint is to be avoided for so many reasons!
Very wrong. This is the reason brands like Hotpoint remain huge despite their increasing shortcomings.
I bought the 9kg 1400 one a few weeks ago. Suites us fine. Yes a 40c cotton takes 3 hours, but lots of other wash cycles and adjustments to make it quicker amd clean just as well.
Guess I got lucky with my fault free 14 year old dishwasher and 12 year old fridge Although, this washing machine is really slow on every cycle except the quick wash My bosch takes 45 minutes for a 40c cotton wash. This machine takes 3 hours!
