Product Overview

A great sized drum for a family. The Beko WMB81241LW holds up to 40 T-shirts in the 8kg drum at once. Great for doing the weekly wash in one go. The Eco clean option saves you up to 70% on wash costs against other machines. It also has an impressive A+ energy rating – costing you around £3.60 a month to run. And there’s a 14 minute Xpress wash to help you save time on smaller loads. Fantastic when you need an outfit ready in a dash.

Good Capacity

This model has a large 8kg drum, which is great for growing families. You’ll be able to fit 8 full outfits inside in one go, with enough space to give everything a really thorough clean. You’ll whizz through uniforms and work wear, so you’ll do fewer wash loads per week.  

Good Capacity

Saving Energy

Energy bills don’t come cheap, so it’s good to know the energy rating of your washing machine.  This model has an efficient A+ rating.  It’ll save you some money each month on your energy bills if you’re upgrading from an A rated model or below.

    Very Satisfied

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

    Cons:none

    "After doing my research I settled on the Beko WME7247, which had fantastic reviews, a large load capacity and the large porthole door. However, when I was ready to purchase, it had been discontinued and not available anywhere. And I am so glad! Now I have the new model and am very pleased with it. Does everything the 7247 did and more. The drum is enormous, which saves time and money, it has an Eco wash program, a 30 minute quick wash program, a baby and toddler program, A duvet program and many more. It automatically adjusts for half load and you can adjust the temperature and spin speed. It's not super quiet but not overly noisy either. Though the spin may irritate if you have an openplan kitchen/lounge. The only thing I don't like is that you may only adjust the spin down and not up. If a wash program is set spin at 1200 I can adjust down to 1000 but not up to 1400. Overall though I am very pleased I bought this model."

    Very good machine for the money

    Pros:Value for money, Easy to use, Good build quality, looks good, quiet when washing, all 4 feet can be adjusted, uses little water when washing, automatic half load sensor, large drum

    Cons:a little bit noisy/squeal on spin, programme knob cannot be pushed in, cheap feel to the soap drawer, no audible buzzer/jingle when wash finished, water lies at bottom of door gasket after wash

    "Just got this machine - First impressions so far: Machine is good looking and wont look out of place in a kitchen or utility room, build quality looks good except for the soap dispenser drawer feels 'plasticky' and cheap feel. I agree with others about the sticking out control knob this would have been nicer of it was a push in push out knob so that when it was pushed in when not in use and would make the facia look aesthetically better looking and of course not be tempting for 'little fingers' to turn! The machine is quiet when washing and spinning I have heard a lot louder machines - however I cannot help thinking how much quieter it would be if only Beko had replaced the original motor which has carbon brushes with a design of that of a brushless induction motor which are very quiet and maintenance free (would never have to replace the brushes on the motor) - I had a hotpoint super silent washer before with a brushless induction motor fitted and once you have tried one of them all other washing machines which uses carbon brushes will sound loud especially when spinning - Of course if Beko were to include a brushless induction motor then this no doubt would push up the price considerably of the machine. There is no audible buzzer/signal on this washing machine when it comes to the end of the was which is a shame and they have included it on a Beko tumble dryer we have and it can be enabled and disabled such a shame they didnt add it to this machine. I hope we get many years out of this Beko washer but even if it doesnt last long not all is lost because the original purchase price is very good for all the features it has. Still havent fathomed out can you get lower temperature than 20 degress (like 15 degrees) and i personally dont think you can it seems to go to 20 degrees and then to zero when selecting temperature, same with rpm spin speed I cannot get it to go lower than 400rpm, after 400rpm it just goes to 'no spin' instead of 300rpm and so on. I cannot believe how little water this Beko Machine uses on daily quick wash with a full load, is that good as its economical or is it bad that with less water the clothes are not washed thourough I can decide, bit when it comes to rinse the water fills almost halfway up the door. In comparison to my previous Hotpoint (which wasnt ancient only 5 years old) when washing and rinsing the water at least came up to the lip of the rubber door gasket and didnt fill up halfway up the door when rinsing. Only other gripe really is that after a wash quite a bit of water is left lying at the bottom of the door gasket even though there are holes there and you would think it would drain away but it doesnt, the instructions tell you to wipe away the water that has collected after every wash, and I say it would be a recommendation to stick to that as if that pool of water was just left there I could see it starting to get stagnant and smell and produce mould on the rubber door gasket, how many people will wipe it after every use is another matter and really it could have been designed better to drain away from the door gasket. one last thing be careful of a little black rubber pipe at the bottom of the machine where the pump filter door is, this is called an 'emergency drain pipe' - now on my particular machine this was resting on the floor after installation of the machine in its place, I would be cautious over time that this pipe could rub on the tiled floor surface and over time friction from the machine washing and spinning could wear a hole in the rubber pipe and you could end up with a pool of water all over your floor and have to replace the pipe, when I get a chance I might see if I can use a cable tie just to lift it up a bit so as its not rubbing on the kitchen floor tiles. thats really all I can say at the moment I hope all the points I have raised helps you decide whether to buy the machine or not but to be honest I personally cannot see you finding another make of machine with so many features for so little money."

    So Far, So Good!

    Pros:Easy to use, useful programs

    "I had to replace my beloved Candy Go, after only 2 years, bought to replace my previous Candy which had lasted 13 years!! I saw all the great reviews for the Beko machines, and thought I'd give them a. go. I can't believe that I ordered it on Saturday afternoon, and it was delivered on Sunday lunchtime. First impressions are, it's a great washing machine. It has a Self-Clean program, 2 Daily Quick programs for 2kg and 8 kg of washing, and and extra Rinse and Spin. 16 programs in total, but to be honest, I tend to only use a quick wash, except for bed linens and P.E and Training kit! It has a 1200 spin, would have preferred 1400, but I've read elsewhere on here that a 1400 can wear out the bearings quicker, so who knows? It's washing now, and I can't hear much through the kitchen door. It is a bit hissy when it's taking in rinse water.... It's not too noisy when it spins, I can still hear the radio! I've only done a few washes, but seems great so far. Great washer for a great price I'll post again when I've used it more."

    revolution in washing

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

    Cons:none

    "This washing machine is a great all round appliance for any family. I love the delay time and the display as to how long is left to run on the cycle. It is quite and manages all loads. I had a 5 kg machine before and this takes nearly double which has reduced my use so is saving me money. The temperature of the wash can be controlled on most of it's cycles so I haven't moved it from 'quick wash' since I have had it. This machine is value for money and the 'Beko' make it definitely up and coming in household appliances as this is the third appliance I have in this make and all are standing the test of time. The only minor grumble if I had to find one is the detergent drawer which isn't as fluid as it could be when opening and closing but I would be reaching to say it is a fault of the appliance."

    Excellent!

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

    "Best washing machine I have purchased in the last 20 years. Had not tried any products by this manufacturer before and the price was low so I was a little apprehensive. My concerns were unfounded. Fantastic "freshen up wash" only takes 17 minutes. I have a large family of 10 and the laundry basket is always empty thanks to the large drum and the excellent range of programs. The machine is very well built and easy to use. It's very quiet and I would definitely recommend friends to buy."
