Good points:
good clear figures which show how long till the wash cycle is finished
Bad points:
a pity that you haven't got a automatic setting for a low temperature wash for 30c without having to actually press the lower temprature button from the 60c setting to take it dwon to 30c

Ginette, Durham Frequent user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
I like the way the display shows how long a chosen cycle is going to take and that it counts down so if you are busy doing other things you can keep checking see how long is left. I have found it is very quiet -compared to my old machine - even when it is on a spin cycle.
Bad points:
There are a lot of cycles that take much too long - one takes over 3 hours - sorry but life is too short! I find I stick to 2 or 3 cycles 2 that are @ 60 mins that I use for main washes & 1 that is 30 mins which I use just for freshening up rarely worn items.
