Does what it says Happy with this washing machine. Simple enough to use yet very useful features. 19 November 2014
Excellent! I'm delighted with this washing machine which was delivered on time and efficiently. It's easy to use, washes well and is fantastic value for money. Highly recommended. 19 November 2014
At last! John Lewis fans look away now! We have suffered a trauma not normally experienced with this shop. First 2 Bosch machines were unsatisfactory due to damage and then failure after 2 washes. Wife had to use sister's JL machine during the MONTH it took to sort things out. We are now using one of these JL machines and she is happy with it. Use of Quick prog. very time saving. Wish we had asked sister in the first place!! There was a minor problem with the last installer because not being a plumber he did not really recognise the connection arrangements and seemed to have some unusual ideas about how we should use the drain etc. Fortunately we have some expertise at home so this did not result in any further delays! So far we would recommend one of these. Added advantage is the slim depth. It fits better under the worktop. 18 November 2014
Thank you jeng!!! jeng Posted a review saying they were in a rush, same here, said they trusted you all, same here. What a great machine, got me out of a spot with the gaffer!!!! at a great price, would I get another JL product? not half. 16 November 2014
Excellent product The wide door aperture makes filling and empty so easy. An extensive variety of programmes and reduced time make this machine excellent and practical. Very happy to recommend. 11 November 2014
After a month of use, really can't fault, especially at price Given the low price (when compared to other rated manufacturers) I was expecting there to be compromise somewhere. However, having taken the time to understand how the different programmes tackle and leave the items when complete, I have to say this is an excellent machine. I thought the 1200 spin would be a compromise compared to the 1400 on the previous machine, but not so. The 1200 spin is very effective, e.g. towels dry in half the time. So far I can't complain about the washing ability, indeed for medium soiled clothes at least one level of 'quick wash' reduction in time provides perfectly clean (and well rinsed) clothes. So much so, that a standard Sunday's washing takes only two thirds of the time compared to the previous machine (NB. scheduled time would be very similar). One feature I was not expecting to appreciate, the depth of the machine is significantly less than the average machine. This does not appear to make loading any more difficult, but the machine fits so much easily within the depth under the worktop without danger of squashing or straining the waste and water connections. Finally, for someone who appreciates technology and controllability, while my partner is definitely technophobic, the Human Interface is both simple, and well thought out, while providing comprehensive set of all the controls you need. It may not have all the (maybe used once) bells and whistles of some machines at twice the price, but it is a washing machine which does everything you really would want. Like :-) 30 September 2014
Excellent Washing Machine Usual story - death of previous machine and hours researching possible affordable replacement. Chose this machine primarily for its price, ease of use and John Lewis 3 year guarantee and company reliability. Installed,tested and old machine removed by two very affable John Lewis men. Positive points: Slimline, thus fitting very neatly under utility room draining board Solid build with sturdy dispenser tray Wide door opening Clear programme display Good choice of programmes Very quiet washing and spinning Excellent washing results even on shortest programmes Very useful 20 minute wash Negative points: Have not found any after two weeks of daily use using most of the programmes available 23 September 2014
good buy Very pleased with this machine that we bought to replace our old bosch machine which had lasted more than 12 years with only one brush change.As we are a large family the old machine was on most of the day and getting noisy.This machine is very quiet and the larger drum works well.We think this is a John Lewis branded AEG product and seems very solid and stable even on fast spin.All machines these days seem to have to comply with green issues which makes the wash times much longer than before but you can shorten the times on this machine by selecting quick washes with no detriment to cleaning quality.3 year John Lewis warranty gives piece of mind compared to the AEG model having only 2 years. 22 September 2014
