Zanussi ZWF81463WR Freestanding Washing Machine, 8kg Load, A+++ Energy Rating, 1400rpm Spin, White

Product information

The Zanussi ZWF81463WR washing machine features washing modes for all lifestyles, including a 30@30 programme which is a quick and easy everyday programme, automatically selected when you turn on the washing machine.

With a generous 8kg maximum load, 1400rpm spin speed and A+++ efficiency rating, this is an ideal choice for any laundry day.

And you can be sure of perfect results every time with the Flexidose drawer: simply choose between powdered or liquid detergent, add it to the right section of the drawer and let the machine take care of the rest. The ZWF81463WR will ensure the detergent doesn’t enter the drum too early in the wash. a power jet inside the detergent drawer ensures no residue is left behind at the end of the wash cycle.

The AquaFall system delivers water and detergent to the centre of the load quickly to optimise distribution. AutoSense saves you time and reduces energy and water consumption by automatically adjusting the cycle to suit the load. 8 programmes including a wool wash are on hand to tackle your washing requirements.

A generously sized XXL silver door makes it even easier to load and unload your laundry. The LCD display also provides you with real time information, including the time remaining and the delay start allows you to plan and do things that you enjoy the most.

Q & As

Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very Noisy Purchased this washing machine 2 weeks ago to replace last washer that I'd had for over 13 years. I could not believe how noisy this was. I believed that the machine must have a fault as it sounded like there was something catching on the drum. Had to wait a week before an engineer came to look at it and was told that the waste pipe was catching on the back of the washer and there was nothing he could do about it. I have had to resort to tying the waste pipe to other pipe. Not what I expected I would have to do with a brand new washing machine. Not impressed with Zanussi and I am certainly not impressed with the support I have received from John Lewis following many calls to their customer services department. Think twice before you buy this washing machine. 09 June 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Terribly noisy Bought this machine to replace a zanussi washer which I had for a number of years. Ijust wish I could have heard it before I bought it and I definitely wouldn't have bothered. It has the most atrocious high pitched whine as it goes into spin mode. The programmes are all a lot longer than my last machine except of course the 30min which only spins at 800 and leaves the clothes soaking wet. All together a dead loss. 02 June 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Broken after 3 weeks We have had this washing machine 3 weeks and it has broken mid cycle full of water. The Zanussi customer helpline has been incredibly unhelpful and after over two hours speaking with various automated machines, unhelpful staff and being cut off three times and on hold for a very long time we are now being charged for someone to come and try and fix it on Saturday. We had a Zanussi machiene previously that we had no problem with but not happy with this one. Despite the machine being only three weeks old and fitted and tested by JL staff and under warrantee we have been told that if the problem is that the filter needs cleaning we will be charged an additional fee for the call out service. We cannot access the filter to check this as for this model it is located at the back and we cannot pull out from under bench as machine is broken full of water and too heavy to shift. I expect when we spend hundreds of pounds on a new product and it stops working after weeks that the company would be helpful, fast and apologetic about the problem, certainly not the case with Zanussi. Stay away from purchasing this machine! 30 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superb Washer This Zanussi washing machine replaced a Zanussi we have had for nearly 10 years. I like you, read the reviews and some were good and some were bad. The machine is not as noisy as any other machines we have had and the door opens fine which a few reviews commented on. If we had to choose again we would pick the same Zanussi machine. Like the heading says it's Superb. 12 May 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Excrutiatingly noisy with bonus intermittent programme fault. Purchased in Oct 2014. Arrived on time and the old machine was removed with no fuss. Does it clean dirty washing? ... yes, 10/10 Does it crease clothes? ... yes, on full loads, 6/10 Is it easy to program? ... mostly, 7/10. But dials would be easier to use, and the squeaky beeps soon become annoying. Is it reliable? ... nope 2/10. Occasionally and completely at random it will stop in mid program for no apparent reason. Is it easy to clean the pump filter? ... no, 0/10. The user guide says "Contact your Authorised Service Centre", presumably because to clean the filter requires dragging the thing away from the wall, removal of the large cover plate on the back of the machine and then rummaging around inside the tin box amongst all the pipes and wires. Is it quiet? ... No. It sounds like a train starting up, -20/10. What started as a niggly little noise when brand new has developed into an unbearable racket within 6 months of purchase. Run it on empty (i.e. no washing) and the noise disappears which is great for my eardrums but still leaves me with a pile of dirty washing. 08 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Zanussi washing machine If you use the 'quick' function on the cottons wash it will cut the wash time considerably. Also if you have a small load it will reduce the wash time further. It resets after 15 minutes. A single duvet or a lighter weight double will fit into the machine. 25 April 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by We got there in the end!! After 2 of these I am finally happy. First one was delivered and they rushed the fitting, the machine was noisy and moved about 8 inches from the space. After numerous calls to John Lewis I finally had a new one delivered and installed and it is brilliant, really pleased with it. Even though they flooded my kitchen. 21 April 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Zanussi ZWF81463WR Washing Machine Countless mix ups with deliveries arranged centrally. Delivery persons were very helpful and I am very pleased with the product which is as described. 16 April 2015
