At the beginning I was not very happy until I worked out how to lower the washing time. Now I wash in synthetic 30 degrees and time saver, it takes only 1hour and 17 minutes. As you lower the temperature the time decreases and the good time is that the spin increases to 1000, which is better then the 800 in the 30 minutes short washing. I spin it again to 1400 before drying to help shorter the drying time, drying takes long, but as I never dry my clothes completely I don’t mind it. Overall I’m very happy with my washer dryer.

Very happy despite being worried about other reviews

I'm overall very happy with the washer / dryer. I was worried about other reviews saying that the wash times were too long. However there are 2 fast wash cycles and another option to cut down any other cycle by 50% these aren't easy to find but you can save your preferred cycles by pressing the memory button. The machine is also very quiet compared with our last and at times we have to check it is still on. The dryer is ok, because it condenses the washing feels damp and steamy when you initially get it out, once the steam is gone the clothes are dry. I can see why people think they are not and end up drying them for longer than needed. Overall very pleased, doing washing is not longer a chore for me.

Great service

I ordered the washer/dryer and it arrived the next day. It’s got more settings than my previous machine and the dryer setting is great. My washing actually comes out dry instead of slightly damp. It’s got easy to understand washing cycles and option to have a faster wash cycle. It’s also quiet which was essential for me as I have an open plan house.

First washer dryer

Nice quiet machine, easy to install even tho the instructions are a little vague would have been 5 star if not for wash and dry times, average wash and dry is around 6-7 hours

Good machine easy to use

Nice machine, easy to use and quiet. Drying cycles are long but other then that cant fault it.


After such a hassle with another company I went to AO. The service provided was first class. gave notice when they were coming. Disconnected and installed my new washing machine very quickly. Now need a dishwasher so will be back. As for the washer dryer, so far so good. Very quiet, works well but drying seems to take a while. Overall very happy.

New Washing Machine

I am really pleased with my new washer/dryer, which replaces my previous 14 year old one. It is quiet and easy to use when washing and drying, My only criticism is that the 1400 rpm spin cycle isn't as effective as the older model's 1600 rpm spin. Would recommend this machine.

Does what it is suppose to do but.....

It is really noisy especially on fast spin and when on the drying cycle there is an annoying banging type noise when it pumps in a small amount of water for the steam drying which happens every 20 seconds or so, so you can imagine how many times that is on a three hour drying time. It is far noisier than my old hotpoint. In future I’ll spend the extra on a high quality machine.
