"Great washing machine"

Pros: Value for money, Easy to use, Good build quality, Quiet, looks good

"Love this washing machine and it's massive 8kg drum, after only ever having a 6kg we were worried it would be too big but as a family of three we still manage to fill it every couple of days! It's not too noisy and washes your clothes very thoroughly. Cycle time is a little long (around 3hrs) but I usually do my washing at night so it's ready to hang out in the morning. It also has a quicker program which cuts the load time in half if you are in a hurry. All round I think it's a great deal for the price."

"ignore previous reviewer - excellent machine!"

Pros: Value for money, Easy to use, Good build quality, Quiet, looks good

Cons: could do with a 30º quick wash aswell!!

"I nearly did not buy this machine due to a previous review, but looked on another website which did say that this machine had a count down timer, as ao did not list this. Im not sure what machine they were reviewing but most of the things they were complaining about were not true! The machine does have a count down timer unlike the previous reviewer said, you can also cut the wash time considerably by pressing the eco time button. Some of the other pros this machine has to offer are the door opens straight after the wash has finished which is great, no waiting around for the door to finally open. It has a power saving feature which basically switches the machine off about 20 minutes after it has finished, which is great if your out. And a delay timer too.The jeans wash so far has proved to be great as they all have come out not needing to be ironed! It also has a great 20 minute 20º quick wash cycle to refresh. And the shoe wash, which my old indesit machine had, is definitely handy if you have kids & wear converses!!! All in all a great machine & not too bad a price. Also a good service received by ao with plenty of communication."

"IWE81481 Washing Machine"

Pros: washes well

Cons: Noisy, cycles to long

"Machine is good, all features good, the only quarm i have is the programmes, there are no half hour washes only an hour or over, there is a twenty minute wash for clothes that only need a refresh but the spin is only 800 rpm so you end up putting it on for another 16 minutes to get a good spin.

otherwise i like this machine."

"Just OK but not great"

Pros: Easy to use, Quiet

Cons: no time countdown, very long washing cycles, very few programmes spin at 1600rpm, no effective 'quick wash' with decent spin

"I bought this model but with a 1600rpm spin speed. it was to replace a LG washing machine that had given up its sterling service to our family's washing demands. I based my decision on the reviews but also on the increased size of drum and spin speed. I have to say I am disappointed. Not in the load size or spin speed but in the length of time the washing programmes take to complete. They are very loooooonnnnngggg. There are only certain programmes that actually spin at 1600rpm (main point of me choosing this model). I also really miss not having a Time Remaining display as on the LG. On the plus the drum size is great and it is quiet both during the cycle and spin.

We received the washing machine only a few days before we went on a 3 week holiday. If this was not the case, I would have returned it to AO within the 14 day period. Would I recommend this machine - probably not but, it is 'Just ok' but I really wanted GREAT. I wish I had gone for another LG - think I made a mistake :("

Indesit IWE81481WH

If it was possible, we would all cut chores out of our lives completely, but as they are an inevitable part of our week, the least we should have is appliances that take care of them for us, without a fuss. The Indesit IWE81481 washing machine comes with a variety of functions dedicated to saving you time, energy and money, so you can spend your weekends with your family and friends doing more exciting things.

It comes with an Eco time option, which means there is no need to wait until you have a full load to wash, as this function is designed for whenever you need to clean a smaller load quickly. It washes up to 3kg of lightly soiled cotton or synthetic garments in around 30% less time, using up to 40% less water and up to 50% less energy. So there are fantastic savings to be had all round.

There are two speedy cycles for when you're in a hurry. The Express 15, which refreshes your clothes in just 15 minutes, and the Flash cotton cycle, which quickly washes mixed loads of laundry. There is even a cycle designed to help you save time after your clothes have come out of the machine. The easy iron function reduces creases in your clothes by lowering the spin speed, therefore saving you time when it comes to ironing.

This washing machine also includes a range of programmes for washing specific fabric types. These include 4 sports cycles, delicate programmes for wool and silk, and an option just for jeans and denim items. The Indesit IWE81481 is also rated A+ for energy efficiency, so it uses 10% less energy on every cycle than an A rated model.
