I wanted a straightforward washing machine that would cope with all the laundry my family generates which is why the 10kg feature appealed to me. It’s easy to get the load in and out through the door – even bulky items like single duvet.
It’s got 8 programmes some of which have a quick option which is great at getting the job done fast when I’m in a hurry. Setting the program is easy on the buttons though I do miss it not having a display showing the remaining wash time. The wash results are good even at 30 degrees and the spin is really thorough – I used to have to do the spin twice on my old machine before hanging out the clothes to dry, but not anymore. Even when it’s spinning at top speed it’s quiet so I can use it in the evening.
The machine does not have a prewash option, but it’s not something I used very much – I tend to put a spoon of Vanish in the washes that need a bit of extra cleaning power.
Overall I’m happy with the machine – it’s economical, quiet, washes fast and the build quality feels good.
