After our old machine died (exploded) after only four years I decided to go for something more expensive and robust. I wanted to find a machine that had an option for an everyday wash which was less than two or three hours for a full-sized wash. This one is brilliant as it has a standard full size wash option that takes 59 minutes, which is probably the only one I'll ever use. It is the quietest machine I've ever had, it's incredibly solid and well-built, the spin is short and is unbelievably quiet and the door unlocks immediately once the wash has finished. It has lots of other cycle options and a delayed start feature. This is an expensive machine but worth every penny and will hopefully last us for a very long time.
