"I was given the opportunity to review this washing machine and i can tell you i am absolutely thrilled with it. This washer is A++ rated which really does save energy over time, a real economical machine. It has a big 7kg drum so it easily washes a full pile of washing in no time. The washer will wash up to 35 t-shirts. So it's ample for a good family sized wash load. The programs on this machine are easy to choose and you get a good choice, the 'quick mix' is a 30 minute wash and is ideal if you need something in a hurry. I'm thrilled with the speed of the spin on this washer as the highest choice is 1400rpm, you also have the option of 700 and 900rpm if you want to wash then spin something a little more delicate. When I'd done the wash on the 'quick mix', i choose an extra spin and when the washing comes out, it just feels damp to the touch rather than wet. This really does help on the drying times, it almost halves the time for me from what i used to use previously. I really love the delay timer too as it helps to run the washer overnight as it is cheaper to use the electric then. I haven't used all the features on the machine yet as I've only had it 4 days but I'm pretty sure already that this machine will be the best one I've ever used. The washer has a few other things on it that i liked too, it has a child lock on the door, if you turn it, it stops the door from closing fully so if there are little kids playing around it they wont get stuck inside as the door doesn't close. You can also turn on a child lock on the washer to stop programs being changed once the machine is in motion. When the washing has gone through it's chosen cycle, it beeps 3 times (repeats about 6 times every few seconds) to let you know it's finished. You can turn the sound off if you want though but i found that handy so i could transfer it to the dryer. There is also a filter box inside the actual drum where you can give the filter a good clean when needed. The machine also has the ability to weigh the laundry and it knows how much water to use. All in all I'm really thrilled with this machine. I would recommend it to everyone in a heartbeat. The only downside, if I'm going to be completely honest here, would be that it isn't the quietest of machines when on spin, saying that, it's not overbearing though and the rest of the features and functions more than make up for having this machine as part of a working kitchen and busy household."
