Confirmed purchaser Busy mum or dad

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
This is the best washing machine I have owned. It has a huge capacity and a great variety of cycles. I especially like the "sensitive" button which uses more water in the rinse cycle.
Bad points:
Not certain that it washes a huge load perfectly, it's better not to stuff it full

Good points:
Size of Drum
Bad points:
We have had an engineer out 7 times since it was purchased in Aug 2010. The module was replaced on first visit then the thermostats. heating element , fan on tumble drier, all the programmes reloaded and the overide switches on tumble drier reset 4 times ( to name a few of the repairs). All these repairs done for the same error code. On the last one the enginneer made the repair in the morning, the error code appeared again by lunchtime and we were told it would be 4 days before an engineer could call again. The solution to not being able to actually fix the machine was to offer to extend the warranty. Would not recommend this product

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
For the most part performs exactly as expected. Very quiet and gives an excellent clean wash
Bad points:
Sometimes will revert to the default temperature setting when a different one has been set but possibly it needs more time to register change than I have allowed before pressing start.

Kerry, London Busy professional, moderate user

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
Large drum size
Relatively easy programmes
Bad points:
SHOCKING build quality and terrible service.
The pipe they delivered had a hole in it, which leaked into my kitchen
The first time we ran it there was an error code which required 2 days at home for two seperate visits over a few weeks for the entire motherboard to be replaced. This is before we had even been able to use the machine.
The dial had a loose connection and had to be replaced.
Shortly afterwards we discovered the machine itself was leaking. The guy came out twice and hasnt fixed it.
Still more error codes coming up now that arent listed in the manual.
This was an expensive machine to buy but it's quality is so poor that it's offensive.
