John Lewis JLWD1612 Washer Dryer, 8kg Wash/6kg Dry Load, A Energy Rating, 1600rpm Spin, White

Product information

The A-rated John Lewis JLWD1612 washer dryer is the perfect addition to any family kitchen, where space is at a premium, combining style with functional design to give an excellent all-in-one wash and dry performance.

Boasting an 8kg wash load capacity and 6kg drying, this model is designed to help you to save time, energy and water.

The JLWD1612 has 16 programmes, including a quick wash and special Delicates and Wool plus cycles. You can even delay the start of your wash and dry cycle to take advantage of off-peak electricity during the night.

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.

Q & As

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 73 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Upgraded replacement, would recommend. Purchased to replace a previous version of the JL Washer Dryer which had given valiant service over 8 years of almost daily use. The top spin speed has been increased to 1600rpm and a number of the programs changed. Although the load capacity has gone up the programme times have also been increased; for example, the cotton economy programme which now takes 8Kg needs over 4 hours for the wash. NOTE: Beware the advertised 8Kg 1600rpm load is for Cottons only. Synthetics and Delicates are limited to 4Kg and 1200rpm while the Quick wash & Dry selection is for just 1Kg at 1200rpm. Some of the longest programmes can be reduced in time by use of the Quick button. However initial use has shown that an additional Spin/Drain cycle is often needed at the end of our normal wash. Overall the upgraded model is a good replacement for our previous model. We made use of the delivery/connection service and this was excellently, and efficiently, carried out by Criag & Andy from the Liverpool depot. 08 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love my new washer dryer Couldn't be happier with my new washer dryer. Washes and drys well. It's predecessor was very basic so it's wonderful to have the choice and variation of programmes this washer offers. Manual not great, but machine controls are fairly self explanatory Installation was quick and efficient, which is only to be expected of John Lewis 08 December 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by JL provided another great product Easy to install. Packaging had been removed by delivery men before they took machine from the van. Pristine condition. Controls are easy to use and provide a wide range of options to cover most types of wash/rinse/dry you would ever need. Much bigger door than on our existing Miele machine allowing for easier loading and unloading. Clothes come out clean. Drying cycles work as expected. Noise levels very acceptable. Machine is stable and fastest spin cycle operates with minimum vibration. Overall, a very good product. 08 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great! First of all, washer dryers are a compromise. The performance will NEVER be as good as separates. So realise that before you buy one. This is especially true of the dry cycles. Also for a family you'll get more washing done faster with separates. There are several comments on here wrt replacing a stand alone dryer with a washer dryer. Performance will never be as good so please manage your expectations! Having said that this is a great washer dryer. Large drum size, good programs and clothes come out clean and dry. There are too many extra rinse options (6) andI can still smell powder after 2, but I feel wasteful setting more rinse cycles even though I have eczema. This is miles better than our old one. My advice? Get separates if you have the room. Otherwise buy this one. Don't get an integrated one - they are less stable and will have a smaller drum. Also get the extended warranty as washer dryers are notorious for breakdowns. 01 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Going well! Bought this machine to replace my much-used trusty old washing machine which had gone for 14 years without a hitch, so I was a bit apprehensive about how a newer machine would shape up. I wanted a washer dryer this time around, and the reviews of this JL machine seemed pretty good. I've had the new machine for two weeks now, and am really impressed. It's very quiet, simple to use, and seems a sturdy machine.. Both washing and drying going well and no hitches so far! I like the facility to adjust the basic programmes according to the type of wash load. The delivery and installation was also very politely and efficiently handled. 01 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by WashdaySmiles An important household addition which has proved as good as the recommendations online read before purchase. Quiet, efficient, good range of programmes (which after years with a different machine take a bit of adapting to) and a great drier. All in all a worthwhile value for money purchase 01 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product, great service I've been lucky and only ever possessed two washing machines in 30 years that have never caused trouble. So was a bit nervous about buying a new one and one with electronic settings too. It's great. I love using it. It's unbelievably quiet and produces excellent results. The workmen had a tricky job installing it but they handled all the challenges my kitchen and its plumbing threw at them and were extremely polite and courteous. Thank you John Lewis. 13 November 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointed! All my appliances are Miele but on this occasion opted to try this John Lewis washer drier based on the vast number of positive reviews. I am so disappointed. The drier has set programmes and the door cannot be opened during to test the dryness of the washing and after three and a half hours the washing comes out wet! If you then put it on again it is so dry it's creased and impossible to iron. I have read and re read the instruction booklet thinking this may be me using the machine incorrectly but i am not. This machine is not worthy of the massive amount of positive reviews or most reviewers have not had the pleasure of using a Miele machine. The difference between a mini and a Ferrari in my opinion. All i can say is thank goodness i am dealing with John Lewis - they are swapping this machine for a Miele even though i have used it. What a fantastic shop it is. 5 stars for brilliant customer service. 13 November 2015
