Product information

The triple A-rated John Lewis JLWD1611 washer dryer is the perfect addition to a family kitchen where space is at a premium.

Combining style with functional design to give an excellent all-in-one wash and dry performance, the JLWD1611 has an extra large 8kg wash load capacity. This helps you to save time, energy and water, and is complemented by a handy 6kg drying load.

The JLWD1611 has 11 wash programmes and 4 drying programmes, which includes a 20-minute quick wash and special Delicates and Handwash Silks cycles. A Steam Refresh programme is great for giving your clothes a quick freshen up and getting rid of creases - all while using minimal water. You can even delay the start of your wash and dry cycle to take advantage of off-peak electricity.

For added convenience, a 1600 rpm spin speed reduces the drying time, and thanks to an inverter motor everything runs more smoothly to provide quicker washing times and quieter operation. Aqua Control helps protect against potential leaks.

The John Lewis name is always an assurance of reliable quality, great design and absolute value. Incorporating the latest engineering features and electronic systems, our appliances are thoughtfully and stylishly conceived to meet all the demands of the contemporary kitchen. There’s also a 3-year guarantee, backed by our very special reputation for excellent service.

Mr Carrillo I was very pleased the the delivery people , the were so good. The only compliant is there is a slight dent on the front of the washer/ dryer I did not notice it until they left. So slightly disappointed . 01 April 2014
Great washer drier I've had several washer driers before, Hoover, Hotpoint and Ariston, as well as a Bosch washer only, and this beats all of them. The programmes are very well thought out and work well for me. I use the quick programmes quite a bit for lightly soiled stuff, as it takes quite a while otherwise, but does wash thoroughly on the full programmes. Unlike other machines I've had I do use most of the programmes. A real bonus is the steam programme, great for refreshing items that have been creased by packing or forgotten ironing! It's also a bonus to have a larger capacity drier than most w/driers. It's so quiet in all but the spin cycle, a bonus in an open plan bungalow. The only puzzle is the timer clock which is a poor guide, particularly for the drier programmes, most things being quicker. I assume that's because it uses a sensor so can't predict accurately how long different garments would take. So down a star for that and the noisy spin. Otherwise I'm delighted. 05 February 2014
Good machine but unreliable I bought this machine for my 88 year old mother in law and she soon got the hang of using it. Unfortunately it has broken down twice already. Fixed under guarantee, but still a hassle. Quality a little disappointing, so the extended warranty is a must. 31 January 2014
Wish we'd never bought it! Worst buy ever. Takes absolutely ages to wash. Intermittent fault with display. Everything covered in fluff and cannot get the defluff special cycle to work. The fact they have special instructions for a defluff cycle says it all. Just waiting for it to break down completely so we can get a different one. Such a disappointment, will never buy JL own brand again. One star appears to be the minimum rating but no stars would be more appropriate. 31 January 2014
Very good, but...... Generally very pleased after a couple of months in use. Lots of useful features and it gives a good wash and dry. Just two complaints: (1) The time-remaining display seems to have a life of its own – it can’t be relied upon in either washing or drying modes and usually shows longer than the machine takes. (2) We’ve used the dryer about a dozen times and hoped the burning rubber smell would have stopped by now, but it’s still with us I’m afraid. 21 December 2013
Overall - A very good machine I bought this to replace an old washer and a separate drier. The spin speed options are great and can accommodate any fabric. The full wash/spin programmes are quite lengthy compared to those I've been used to. Also, I did find the manual a bit difficult to follow at times and couldn't always find what I was looking for but have now found my way around by trial and error. My main complaint relates to the 'spin only' option. I still like to hand wash my fine woollens but have found that the machine will not spin single items! This means I have to save up my hand washing till I have enough to make up a decent load to spin. Nevertheless, I am happy with the machine. 16 December 2013
OK Good points Washer works well 3 year warranty Bad points Dryer broke after 9 months. Was fixed under warranty but poor that this happened. Washing and dryer cycles are very long. At least 2.5 hours to do a cotton wash at 40 degrees. Some clothes are covered in grey fluff after drying (we clean the drum and filter often). Be careful about getting John Lewis to fit the machine unless your set up is totally straight forward. The fitter gave up and my partner and I ended up completing the installation ourselves. 21 July 2013
fantastic washer dryer Have bought this washer dryer combination as I do not have room for two separate machines I cannot praise it enough, the washer has so many programmes and the dryer is excellent .The delivery and installation was so easy and on time! Bonus is the three year warranty. Well done John Lewis 14 April 2013
