I'm thinking of a Zanussi or a Bosch, maximum price about £300. Anyone care to recommend theirs please?

Also, whilst I'm here, does anyone have any ideas how to get all the foul little black grease spots out of my poor white wash... sad ?

Thank you in advance smile

I've got a Bosch and it's beeping at me now. Other than that, it's great.

I'm veering towards a Bosch, but only because it'll match the other appliances in my kitchen... hmm. DH thinks we ought to go for another Zanussi (cheaper).

Do you have a model number Katie?

Have got my stuff soaking in Vanish stain remover until we get new washing machine. Hope I'm doing the right thing...?

Exxcell 1400 S Express in silver.

Have had it for 2 years with no trouble. I have a seperate condenser drier and the water is almost drinkable when I empty it. It is in constant use, hence the constant beeping.

I've got a Zanussi, very pleased with it, it's got a timer that tells you how long the programmes are and how long is left, delay start, quick wash and a takes a 7kg load. I do wish I'd paid a bit more for a faster spin speed though. This one's ZWF 12280W, cost 229 I think.
