I hate washing and so figure that doing it less frequently is the answer. What large capacity washing machine does well on quick washes (about the only button I use on my present machine) and is reliable. Ideally cheap to run as well, but I guess you can't have it all.....

Help polease - what works in your experience?

We bought a Beko washing machine last year with a 7kg drum and it's the best washing machine we've had so far.

Has got quick wash which takes 39 minutes and washes things perfectly well unless they're mega dirty.

I think we payed around £300 for it in Comet.

Sounds like a great deal Haribjoe. Has it been problem free? Has anyone else got a Beko and had it for longer? How is it doing?

Thanks. Hope you get some ideas, ajandjjmum.

Hot point Aqualtis wth a 9kg drum. 30 minute quickwash that's good, but you do need to run a longer wash in a machine occasionally to clean it out properly.

Oh - sounds more like it, Thevisitor. Is it a front loader? How do you know when to clean it out - does it start to smell?

Haven't had any problems with it (touch wood) it gets used everyday and usually minimum of 2 loads, some days I literally have it on non-stop so it's certainly been tested well!

You poor bugger! Washing is such a drag.... But, at the risk of sounding like my other, it's a lot easier now it's summer.... my mum advised me to rent our current flat because it's got a great place to hang the washing line. There is no fear I will turn into her on the washing goddess front, thoughsmile

Yes, it's a front loader. Mine doesn't smell, because I tend to wash on 40 degrees and use the hot wash for bedding. It's using the quickwash function on low temps all the time which can gunk up your machine. I love my machine - had no problems with it at all.

I have a <<<<runs off to check>>>>> Hoover 10kg Dynamic wash!!! and it is great!

It has rapid washes of 14, 30 and 45 mins so great when you need a forgotten laundry done quickly ;)

The man said everyone should do a wash once a month on 90 degrees as it clears out old powder and limescale-keeps everything working nicely.
