David, Nottingham Retired

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Quiet in operation, good range of programmes and wash times and the higher than normal front door makes loading and unloading easier

It does the job quietly and without fuss
Bad points:
Maximum load of 6kg is a bit lower than some machines (although I believe a larger drum size is available i some models from this manufacturer) but for my needs the drum size is perfcetly adequate

Good points:
The 15 min wash is great for things like new bedding or clothes that just need freshening up after storage. The 59 main wash cycle is a good all rounder
Bad points:
none that I've found yet

J, Stalybridge Frequent user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Was looking for a machine with a quick wash feature and this model does exactly that. It's quieter than my old washer and the minutes left display is great. Everyday washes come out nearly dry therefore saving on drying time.
Bad points:
Some of the wash programmes are long of tend to use quick wash.

Good points:
Not found any yet
Bad points:
Washing comes out very creased and my little boys vests come out looking like a screwed up football. At the moment my clothes are stuck in the machine and have been for over 2 hours now. When the engineer came out he moaned at me and told me I was not putting in enough water! I really hate this machine, it was a waste of good money

Washing Machines Buyers Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

Laundry days don’t need to be a hassle with the Candy GC1662D1 Washing Machine. Its high spin speed reduces the amount of water left in your laundry, which cuts down on drying times.

Shiatsu for your clothes

The Candy GC1662-D1 boasts the Shiatsu wash system, designed to provide the best possible wash for your clothes. The drum has smaller and more numerous holes, which increases the water pressure during the wash, as well as curved paddles and a raised dome. This provides all-round better cleaning, and also helps to increase water extraction during the spin cycle.

Perfect programming

The GC-1662D1 has 16 wash programmes that let you choose the ideal mode to suit the load you’re washing. This includes a woollens cycle that cares for woollen garments.

The Allergy Care programme uses more water during the cycle, helping to reduce the amount of detergent left on your clothes as well as providing a gentler wash.

When you’re in a rush, the rapid 30 minute quick wash can clean 2.5 kg of lightly soiled clothes in only half an hour, perfect for work clothes or your favourite party outfit.

The countdown timer lets you know how much of the cycle is remaining.

Easy unloading

The extra large porthole is positioned higher in the washing machine, which makes it easier to load and unload the GC 1662D1. Your clothes will be easy to dry thanks to the high 1600 rpm spin speed, which removes more water for reduced drying times.

Plan your time

You won’t need to leave clothes damp inside the machine thanks to the delay timer. It allows you to delay the start of the wash by up to nine hours, so you can plan your wash to end as you get home – this means you can start drying your clothes sooner.
