Siemens WM14Y890GB iDos Washing Machine, 8kg load, A+++ Energy Rating, 1400rpm Spin, White

We like it because...

The intelligent i-Dos system automatically calculates and dispenses the ideal detergent amount for any laundry load, so you’ll never have to measure detergent again.

Product information

Experience the flexibility and efficiency of the A+++ energy-rated Siemens WM14Y890GB washing machine.

This IQ700 Siemens machine is a VarioPerfect model, and achieves outstanding cleaning results for all types of textiles, and all load sizes. Additionally, practically all programmes can be combined with the ‘EcoPerfect’ option for more energy savings or with ‘SpeedPerfect’ for faster results.

Even more impressive is that this machine is self dosing. i-Dos is ideal for people who like to do things the easy way. It automatically decides how much liquid detergent and softener your wash needs – down to the last millilitre. You’ll never have to use a measuring cup again. i-Dos holds enough detergent and fabric conditioner for around 20 washes so you only need to refill around once a month.

Innovative iQ drive motor technology on this machine works with the VarioPerfect features to deliver energy efficiency, speed and durability. Meanwhile, the unique antiVibration design ensures greater stability and quietness.

If you enjoy the outdoors, why not try the dedicated programme for outdoor clothes? This specialist programme works with Nikwax to add new life to breathable fabrics. And if you are in a hurry, the mixed fabric quick wash programme washes a large load of assorted clothing in just 35 minutes - no need to pre-sort! Other washing options include:

  • Rapid 15 minute wash
  • Lingerie
  • Easy care dark
  • Shirts and blouses
  • Curtains
  • Handwash/wool
  • Delicates/silk

A large TFT clear-text display informs you of the programme progress, temperature, spin speed and time remaining of your wash, so you’re always in complete control. The WM14Y890GB also includes a 24 hour time delay, to give you the option of washing when energy tariffs are cheaper.

A liberal 8kg capacity makes this machine ideal for larger households, while the extra large door gives you more room when putting your laundry in. This unit also features a reload function that lets you add something to the wash if the water level in the drum is not too high - handy if you’ve dropped a sock on the way to the machine!

The drum itself is an optiWave model: it has steep edges to create the power needed for heavy duty loads, while the shallow edges allow your clothes to glide gently around the drum. Additionally, the surface of the drum has been sculpted into a raindrop pattern that emulates the shape of the paddles, to offer potent yet gentle treatment of your delicate items.

A child lock function is on hand for added peace of mind.

Q & As

Siemens WM14Y890GB iDos Washing Machine, 8kg load, A+++ Energy Rating, 1400rpm Spin, White 5 5 1 1
Brilliant machine but then our last Siemans lasted 13 years Looks state of the art. Large drum and quick wash procedure will save money. At the time free wash liquid and conditioner was enough to last a year. With good bundle of free extras the washing is great, virtually dry and making the machine value for money. Will save money on washing duvets (Super King) in this extra large drum. 19 August 2014
