so long story short I had fab panasonic 1600 spin, 8kg, really smart and SUPER quiet, good looking etc. friends were jealous kind of washing machine. i recommended it to everyone. 3 and half years in. fault. under 6 year warranty but awful service from repair people, complained to manufacturer and got my free replacement or refund. going to take the refund as not sure i trust the service people, but happy with the machine (till it broke of course! lol) and the service from them now they sorting my complaint out.
NOW i am looking at something that is superbly silent really, smart, and not Miele as cannot afford it and anything that is pref less than £750.
And lesson learnt will require 5 year guarantee at least.
found these on JL.
which one would you go? and why?
i like them coz of apparently low noise level, drum size, high spin, functions, and the slight chrome look about them etc. and reviews of course!
which one?
help please. whoever could be arsed bothered. thank you very much! ;-)
(second one in, not sure why link not working)

I love my samsung Ecobubble 12kg. It's pretty amazing.

Koumak Fri 01-Aug-14 15:01:12

you have got one? tell me more PLEASE!
is it quiet, what can it do that impressed you lol

Koumak Fri 01-Aug-14 15:02:04

i might not get the 12kg one though. do you think the specs will be the same?

Koumak Fri 01-Aug-14 16:13:01

no other experience with these washers?! hmm

Crazy8 Fri 01-Aug-14 16:19:32

It's very quiet. I love it. 60cm wide. I bought it from John Lewis and it came with a 5 year warranty. Have had it a year now and still can't believe how much washing I can get done in it. DH, kids and I play a lot of sport so lots of washing every week.

Also it has a 15min quick wash which is great.

Correction. I bought it from Boots Electrical which uses Aplliances on Line. Paid £731 and they were offering £100 cash back.ordered it at 6pm on Saturday and they delivered and fitted it by 11am Sunday morning.

Thank you! I dont think i can make husband stretch the budget to over 1k though sad ooh but am tempted lol
I will wait what everyone else says about the others but right now the 9kg bubble is favourite

They also have them available on Amazon.

posted before i've seen your reply!

Koumak Fri 01-Aug-14 16:29:25

now i am really impressed! wow that was fast and great price too!

Koumak Fri 01-Aug-14 16:32:47

how does the cashback work? and did you register the warranty directly with the manufacturer?
I didnt know existed! thank you for opening my eyes Crazy8

I got the 9kg ecobubble a couple of weeks ago and am quite happy with it. came with a 2 year guarantee that you could upgrade to 5 years. Got it from appliances online-free next day delivery. You can pay extra for them to take the old one away and/or connect the new one.

Koumak Fri 01-Aug-14 18:44:10

thank you ilovepowerhoop can I ask why did you go for this one especially?

ilovepowerhoop Fri 01-Aug-14 20:11:22

it had a big drum, 1600 spin speed, speed wash options and a good energy rating. Seemed to get good reviews too.

Koumak Fri 01-Aug-14 21:42:47

before, i get it, neither of you work for samsung, right?! grin
i am keen on the either the 8 or 9 kg one, for some reason JL has the 9kg cheaper than 8 but not available online, so have to give them a call.
the 5 year warranty will be a deal breaker for me and whether they can delivery asap
thank you both for your input!

ilovepowerhoop Fri 01-Aug-14 21:58:51

appliances online have the 9kg for £563 (a bit gutted as I paid £582 for it on the 17th June!!). If you order it today from them you could get it tomorrow for £9.99 or Sunday for Free. It comes with 2 years free guarantee and then when you get it you register online to upgrade to 5 years. - shows the eligible products for the 5 year warranty.

And no, I do not work for Samsung!

Koumak Fri 01-Aug-14 22:08:33

i have looked on this website already, but it says that this model is not included in the Q&A section? i better go and read the small print
thank you for the links!

ilovepowerhoop Fri 01-Aug-14 22:10:47

it is included as I bought it and have registered for the guarantee - if you read the 5 year guarantee link then that model is included. It is a recent promotion though so maybe the question in the Q&A was from before the promotion started.

ilovepowerhoop Fri 01-Aug-14 22:12:01

from the samsung link of the products included:

WF90F7E6U6W3EU - this is the 9kg machine I bought

Koumak Fri 01-Aug-14 22:17:17

yes it does make sense that it should be included, so i suppose the "the number one contributer" has no idea! lol
thank you. I will order now!

ilovepowerhoop Fri 01-Aug-14 22:19:44

the question was answered 9 months ago and the promotion only started In June 2014 so wasnt running at that time so the answer was correct at the time.

the 5 year guarantee was a factor for me buying it too smile

As you may have seen on the other washing machine thread, my Samsung Eco Bubble 12kg completely broke after 7 months sad

After 5 engineer visits, Samsung refunded me.

I have an LG 12kg one now, it's good but unsure if it's excellent.

e1y1 Sat 02-Aug-14 00:26:24

Oh, also I got the £100 cash back offer from Samsung, however, that was a promotion that ended on 31st May 2013. Hope that helps.

Crazy8 Sat 02-Aug-14 00:31:09

I definitely don't work for Samsung. I just love my machine. I have 3 DC and sadly I have a ridiculous amount of washing every day/week. I hate seeing washing in the laundry basket. I think with a 5 year guarantee its almost ad good as a Miele. Half the price (almost!) for half the guarantee. My DH and I both think if it goes wrong after 5 years we can either buy an extended warrantee or washing fairies might be invented by the who make the whole job easier.
