Key Features

Product Overview

Speed up laundry days with this washing machine from Smeg – the 9kg capacity is great for medium-sized households. For clothes that don’t need a full wash, the Steam Refresh option uses a burst of steam to revive the fabric and loosen any wrinkles, so you won’t even need to iron. The Anti-Allergy cycle uses high temperatures and extra rinses to leave clothes hygienically clean. When you’re in a hurry, the Quick Wash programme can clean a small load in just 14 minutes. And there’s a dedicated Wool programme for your delicate knits.

Features we love

Refresh Clothes With Steam

Steam Refresh from Smeg quickly revitalises your clothes. This short cycle uses steam to relax the fibres in your clothes, removing creases and folds. It also helps to eliminate odours in the process. It simply freshens up your items, leaving them ready to wear straight away – so it’s the perfect choice for reviving items midweek or refreshing clothes that have been in storage for a while.

Anti Allergy

If anyone in your household suffers with allergies like hayfever or sensitive skin, Smeg’s Anti-Allergy programme will wash away 99.9% of allergens, including dust mites, pollen and fur. It does this by using higher temperatures, more water and a longer rinse, so it’s perfect for hardwearing fabrics like cotton, linen and denim. This not only gently cleanses your clothes, but will help to look after your family’s delicate skin.

14 Minute Quick Wash

When you’re in a rush and desperately need to wash a few items, Smeg’s 14 Minute Quick Wash programme is a fantastic time saving option. This short cycle is perfect for clothes that have only been worn once, or for when you need that essential item clean in a hurry.

A good machine but long cycles let it down somewhat

To me a washing machine is just a washing machine, and there aren’t a lot of features which differentiate one from another. That said however, I’m particularly impressed with this Smeg machine. Upon delivery, there were 5 drum retaining bolts to remove from the back of the machine and the usual instructions, guarantee and clean/ waste pipes. The machine only comes with a hot water pipe however, in my case I had to go out and buy another pipe because I have split my water outlet so I can also use the dishwasher. This meant that the supplied pipe didn’t fit hence the need to purchase a replacement clean water inlet hose. Aesthetically, the machine has modern and chique look with bright white body and chrome coloured plastic door and drawer handle. It features an LCD display screen with touch function buttons and a central rotating programme switch. I’ve seen a number of reviews which say that the touch buttons are so sensitive that you can accidentally stop a programme by walking past however, after trying to replicate the same myself, I haven’t yet experienced the same situation. To remedy this however, there is an easily activated Child Lock function which prevents any changes being made to the programme during a cycle and alleviates this issue. There is a good range of different programmes selectable using the rotating switch in the centre of the machine. Unfortunately these functions are quite lengthy in time by comparison to many other models with the shortest cycle being 2:20 minutes. There is a short wash cycle which takes 15 minutes however, I tend not to use short cycles too often so this feature is wasted on me. I assume that the duration of the cycles is for a good reason and Smeg have decided to extend the cycle duration in favour of performance as opposed to convenience. There does seem to be long periods of inactivity throughout the cycles with the drum remaining still and no sound of any water being drawn or disposed of but this could simply be my naivety of how washing machines work! Setting the machine is very simple and the buttons and functions are well labelled although some of the auxiliary functions like the child look isn’t. The symbols are easily identifiable and it doesn’t take a master to understand what functions are set. In terms of the cleaning power, I can’t vouch for an improvement over that of a shorter cycle as they smell and look just as clean as they did on my previous model; not very helpful I know! What I do know is that the machine is very quiet even at high RPM. A feature which I do like is the 14 minute steam programme which I use to remove creases from clothes which have been stored in a cupboard for a while and need a freshen up. Especially handy when you forget to iron your uniform the night before work! In summary this is very good machine wish some great features. The only downside which I’ve found is the duration of the programmes meaning that it takes a lot longer to get through the average family wash.

Pros: Quiet, Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks good Cons: Long Wash Cycles

Smeg washing machine WMF 916 AUK

This seems to be everything the description stated. Good range of programmes, excellent load capacity, super spin speed range, quiet operation and the steam facility is a very handy bonus not available on most machines. Only minor issue is the touch sensitive power switch which is sometimes activated accidentally simply whilst walking past the machine. Also after the machine has finished a wash it will auto turn off which is good but then a few minutes after automatically turns itself back on for no explicable reason 🤔 Overall though a very good machine and very good value for money 🙂

Pros: Large load capacity, Large door apeture, Quiet, Ease to use, Good build quality Cons: Touch power and pause wash switches

Not too happy

The programmes take far too long, there seems no way to shorten them. Also I wanted a 1600 spin which you can only get on a few programmes. I am not happy at all with this machine.

Pros: Quiet Cons: Complicated

Disappointed that the short cycle is 14 mins with a low spin speed,then the next shortest is over 2 hours. Doesn’t offer a intermediary wash of about 1 hour with a fast spin speed. As there are only 2 retired people I find the long programmes uneconomical for our needs. Also why is eco cotton longer than cotton. Other than that it’s a good size,it appears robust although the main Knob is surprisingly flimsy compared to the rest of the machine. The wash quality is good. However my star rating is lower because of the length of the wash cycles!

Pros: Quiet, Ease to use, Good build quality, Value for money, Looks good
