anyone still waiting for a refund on this?
My paypal payment was still showing as pending so I emailed JL today with my paypal transaction ID asking them to cancel/refund the pending payment which has now been done.
Nope not yet
Anyone had a refund yet?
Well mine hasn't turned up but never thought it would so nothing lost 😁
Did they take your old machine back?
Didn't take mine. Put it on the street, gone within an hour. Hopefully John Lewis won't ask for it!
I just explained to them that I brought the washing machine with a trade in option and showed them the confirmation email.
Mines coming today. What did you say to them to get it taken away
Had mine delivered today. They were not expecting to take my old machine (since the disposal option was not ticked). After a little deliberation they took it anyway. If you want them to take your old machine then I would suggest calling them before the day of delivery.
Good model...I have one and it's great.
Good price. Rated just short of a best buy on Which
:D I had the council to remove my old cooker for free so always check with your council.... Hope this helps someone.
Any good chest freezer deals going? (Anywhere) looking for one that is a chest rather than a tower.
Quote from which website
Slow at freezing, struggles in cold room temperatures, guzzles energy, hard to use, potentially unsafe backing material
Good fridge too late for me as I ordered a Kenwood for 280 from Currys
I use my old range cooker oven as a cupboard pending the new kitchen LOL Halogen oven from Argos does a better job :)
I bought a Zanussi fridge/freezer from John Lewis - came with a 2 year warranty, but it stopped cooling abou 2 months after the warranty ran out! Now I just use it as a food storage cabinet.
We’ve been buying 24/7 running fridge/freezers for 50 years and they have got safer over that time. Grenfell is about the complete and utter top of the iceberg of how Labour and Tories have run our public services to crap (it’s also completely heartbreaking both situations). But you’ll find all them MPs retired well with pensions and non contributory second London homes & a lot more cash from external through connections through public service. Anyone can get free fire alarms from their local Fire Service or buy on. And check the dates on them - my social landlords electric one was months out of date! The sparky took 1 minute to slide the facia off and replace it. Electrical wires in stud walls are fire risks themselves and we throw up cardboard houses. If you have anything on 24/7 it’s a risk so have a fire alarm, even one extra where your broadband router is - power surges can come down a copper phone line and effect a router plugged into mains power. I sleep with my lounge door wide open so the hall fire alarm would pick up anything to do with my router, I also sleep with a window open on the latch for the gas boiler & the fridge/freezer that’s plugged in 24/7 makes sure I leave ajar again for the hall alarm. Its called fire health and safety safety for the home, I may pay slightly more costs in heating but the simple fact is if you ain’t sleeping on the ground floor take all preventive action with fire safety. I have a fire blanket in my kitchen and like commercial it should be mandatory, especially when you sell a house. I’m on the top of a block, 4th floor, suspended concrete floors - older blocks don’t have that luxury and fire alarms/safety and block evacuation should be a priority and be handled by everyone but one person has to stand up and be a main ringleader - be that person, call the fire brigade and ask them to come do a flat assessment & block evacuation plan with you, you’ll find when one person takes the lead the rest generally follow. Think about your home and plan ahead, you can minimise the smallest risks in life, you can start again with no insurance coverage with smoke/fire damage but you can’t replace a mammal. As I said be that person, especially if you live in a old flat or have young or old dependents with you even once a week/month/year because their life is in YOUR hands the householder. (y)
Absolutely. Too bloody many these days are professional offense takers (the usual suspects)
out of stock
Which now rate Zanussi as 5 star reliability and Beko 4 stars. I personally have a Miele WDA101 and that has so far been faultless. It is only 4 years old however, I hope to get at least 15 years service out of it. We also have an old Hotpoint WMA from 2002, it is super simple and I am able to repair it should anything go wrong. They have split bolted tubs and simple electronics, you can pick them up on ebay for about £50. If you are handy with a set of spanners then it is a good way to go. They were the last ones from the made in GB generation before Indesit ruined Hotpoint. It also cleans as well as the Miele believe it or not. It is from the days when washing machines actually used a decent amount of water to clean your clothes!
I haven't seen the which reliability survey for about 2 years I think but back then Beko were scoring higher than electrolux models for reliability but it could have changed. There seems a lot more failures with Mieles nowadays and a lot more annoyed owners. Surely with sealed tubs that makes a 5 year warranty more essential with the risk any washing machine can be a write off out of warranty. I must admit I've been very happy with my Beko appliances, fridge freezer and dishwasher they replaced so called superior brands which were far worse. My next washing machine is likely one with an inclusive 5 year parts and labour warranty and LG would probably be my brand of choice but it would depend on the deal at the time.
Got this for £270 last year. Good washing machine, if you don't like the times it takes, which are ridiculous to be fair you just press quick which halves the time. The wash is still as good. Fully reccomend.
bought 10 cos i shat meself x
We’ve had this washing machine for nearly 3 years. Very good, obviously holds more than the average machine and it does a quick wash on 40 degrees in 1hr 43min. We paid much more than this as well.
It’s the one mentioned above inc pic https://electrical.coop.co.uk/laundry/washing-machines/freestanding/miele-wkb130-8kg-1600-spin-washing-machine-in-white-a-mie-wsh-wkb130-w/?utm_source=hotukdeals&utm_medium=content&utm_term=AWIN&source=AW&awc=1915_1527619983_6f79c5ca8489648753191df184a179bb
Labour costs make many repairs prohibitive. For some brands parts costs make it pointless, or are not available to independent repairers . For many newer models some repairs are not possible as the bearings are sealed in the drum. In the 1950s everything was viable for repair, it's not the same now.
Must be this 7kg machine for £574 https://www.hughes.co.uk/product/kitchen-appliances/laundry/washing-machines/miele/wdb020
Pleas share the Miele deal then...
There are many fantastic independent repairers out there, (if out of warranty, granted) not always worth paying for the extra warranty. Independents over manufactures / insurance companies every day of the week for me.
I have this as well.. Its fantastic
Ah, good job you clarified that. I hadn't worked that out, you clown :p
Euronics have price matched John Lewis https://www.euronics.co.uk/laundry/washing-machines/zanussi-058zwf01483wh/3202#alternativeProductsTab should be £270 until tomorrow as the usually only adjust prices once per day. (I work in a Euronics dealer)
I'm afraid that it is pedantry on this particular forum. However irritating it may be to see the many grammatical and spelling errors in HUKD member posts, there is a fine line between someone who thinks they are being helpful by correcting them and those who do it just to elevate their position and appear clever. Judging by your reply, I'm sure you were just trying to be helpful but on this type of forum, it just comes across as trying to be clever.
No longer on the site sadly. Zanussi ZWF01487W Freestanding Washing Machine, 10kg Load, A+++ Energy Rating, 1400rpm Spin, WhiteSave £70 (price includes saving) £329.00 Next closest now.
Was it 12 years, or up to 12 years? As model reported was built between March 2006 and July 2009. Could be a nearly 8 year old model. https://www.hotpointservice.co.uk/fridgefreezer
We have the same problem with our Zanussi Gas Hob, within 12 months all the markings had worn away on the knobs and metal surrounds.
It sounds a little like you expect old appliances to catch fire just because they are old! Just because something is old, it does not mean it has to fail, especially in a catastrophic manner.
Sure they are whirlpool but i always get ikea ovens as they come with 5 years warranty and are decent quaity for anyone looking
It was a 12-year old fridge-freezer that started the Grenfell fire. Is that just outside the warranty?
It’s a cheap price but is of very poor quality it will do your head in has the pan stands are designed stupid most pans have a slight bow on the base and the racking on the jhob won’t let it sit flat when cooking and is quite dangerous I would avoid.... but that’s just my opinion
The moron who designed my hob will never know how much I hate him, how can an idiot sit down and design a hob that the pots and pans slide off unless they are placed dead centre? It's one of my lifetimes ambitions to catch up with him and ask the idiot what he was thinking.
Good price and thanks to the OP, this type is not advisable for people with young children as they can reach the controls and turn them on.
Zanussi is not great... Even beko is better
Zanussi very poor customer service check trust pilot before wasting your money. I bought a cooker from them 7 months ago had 3 engineers out so far to fix it would never buy one of there products again.
But that's still dearer?
Thanks. Bought one.
only £149 on the ebay outlet free p&p
Why?, It's practically the same minus a few cosmetic differences. The internals are the same etc.
Going by reviews you maybe better paying the extra and going for an AEG Model... https://www.johnlewis.com/aeg-47102v-mn-freestanding-electric-cooker-stainless-steel/p2199588
lowest price ever have found.. thanks OP!
How much would the gas version of this cost if you were a member?
Good question. We bought this model on the back of the Which? review. I just know I wouldn't buy it again because of the issues with the grill. I'll let you know when we've replaced it. (highfive)
Yes, that's what I meant. Sorry for the confusion.
I think Tylah 3 means the oven is for a rental property not to rent an actual oven (y)
Wots wrong widt getting one for a rental? I always do it, so you dun hav to spend all ya wonga
Try Brighthouse, maybe?
Just buy it, don't bother renting . 😻
Thanks for this OP - installed mine today - looks nice, heats up quick and is so much quieter than our old one! Fitting instructions are limited but right at the back of the manual.
Thanks Rodrigo. Will try it myself.
That works like a drawer. It might have some bolts on the side (easily unscrewed) and then pull it out...
Don’t forget to go through topcashback - effectively covers the delivery cost
ordered, thanks OP (y)
Says you need to sign in to see member prices so possibly still active?
People still have these? I guess it'll be called 'retro' now?
tried to join to be greeted with this message Sorry, this service isn't workingYou can't access your account right now but we're trying to fix this. Please try again later. lol good start :(
I’ve got this cooker and can recommend it. Great price too.
Thanks, but Which?!?!&&#? - the only place I've found with proper reviews of ovens - really doesn't like Hotpoint at all, none of its ovens are Best Buys. This Zanussi is the third best rated oven they have listed, and even at £400 it's half to a third of the price of the other best rated ovens.

Damn, thats really annoying, though thanks for not blaming me. :) Its a shame as I've ordered a few appliances from them and have been so impressed with the delivery dervice, but seems they're not as perfect as I thought. :(
Co-op refused to deliver to me because I'm on a Red Route, despite having a loading bay (and a Co-op convenience store!) right in front, and us getting plenty of deliveries every week. Won't tell me why this is so - some nonsense about an £80 fine for even being seen using the road, which TfL says is untrue. Very unhappy to have missed out on this deal, but it's no fault of the OP!
Well mine turned up today and after installing it's tripping my RCD so must take an higher current than my old oven.
