from pressing start to running thru a normal 40 degree wash with no extra rinse, no prewash just a wash, a rinse and a spin.

I bet you can;t beat minegrin

I think the 40 deg, 1200 spin, cotton cycle on my Bosch machine is about 1hr 20

Mine's 1 hour 20 mins - LG

It takes forever in our house - my DS has to be constantly watched as he has a habit of pushing the buttons on the machine ...

ermm not sure exactly depends on how much stuff is in there (one of those fancy smancy ones that works out how much stuff is in there and adjust times accordingly) think usually around 1hr 30 (Daewoo)

My old one took about 2 1/2hrs grin

mine is long, 1hr 57mins for a basic wash, i use the quick wash setting most of the time.

NomDePlume Mon 08-Sep-08 10:53:09

Quick wash on mine is 15 mins.

squeaver Mon 08-Sep-08 10:53:26

Miele - 1hr 58 or 1hr 6 if I put in on "short".

But it also adjusts itself depending on how much is in there

MerlinsBeard Mon 08-Sep-08 10:53:47

i don't have a quick wash setting on mine

No one has even come close yetgrin

i left my alrightish washer at the flat when i moved because there was one here - i want my old one back

Just over an hour I think but it is an old machine. Also it makes a big difference if you have a cold fill. Ours is hot and cold so most of the water goes into machine from the boiler. Many modern machines have to heat up the water themselves which adds to the time of course.

46 mins, not sure what make, can't be b otherd to look!

Fimbo Mon 08-Sep-08 10:54:28

1hr 57 minutes

onepieceoflollipop Mon 08-Sep-08 10:55:29

I reckon yours is about 3 hours MoM.

?? Am I right.

(my dishwasher on the eco setting takes almost 3 hours shock - first time I thought it had broken!)

I do most stuff on quick wash as I am a slattern...obviously pay more care to important/dirty things....we have 3 quick wash settings, 29minute. 45 and 60...I love quick wash.

cupsoftea Mon 08-Sep-08 10:56:14

wow - 15 mins!! just time to make a cup of tea

My washing mzchine takes 35 mins on 35, 1000 with two rinses - quicker with normal rinse but think 30mins.

LazyLinePainterJane Mon 08-Sep-08 10:56:15

Ours does have an AA economy 40degree wash that seems to take all day.

LackaDAISYcal Mon 08-Sep-08 10:57:23

1hr 23mins, or 50mins if on a quick wash.
It's a hoptpoint.
(it says 1hr 30, but it always jumps from 7mins left to being done...not sure why)

mellyonion Mon 08-Sep-08 10:58:45

mine takes FOREVER! about 2hours and 40.....tiz a fucking pain...and its broken because i keep overloading it...man is coming today, and my washing bin is just about to start spilling from my bedroom, into the hallway, down the stairs, and into the kitchen....like that magic porridge pot.

there. bet you're sorry you asked now! blush grin

onepieceoflollipop Mon 08-Sep-08 10:59:33

MoM is yours 15 minutes too, or was your shock at NomdePlume?

NomDePlume Mon 08-Sep-08 10:59:51

My dishwasher (also Bosch) has 5 settings - a cold rinse (15m), a 35 degree wash (15m), a 50 'eco' wash (2hrs!), a 65 degree wash (also 2hrs) and a heavy soil 95 degree wash (about 2h 15m). I nearly always use the 35 degree with a rinse beforehand (30m in total) and the stuff comes out sparkling. Only use the more hardcore programmes if we have had a roast of soemething with mucho dirty pans and crockery. How on earth can a 2 HOUR cycle be economical ?!

onepieceoflollipop Mon 08-Sep-08 11:01:14

NDP re the dishwasher, I can only imagine that it does a longer rinse or something like that to loosen all the dirt? I have no idea why it takes so long, but according to the book, the eco uses way less electricity than the standard programmes. (and significantly less water too!)
