Q & As

rubbish I got this machine a couple of years ago and hated it ever since, if you was delicates, it doesn't spin at all and the garments are too wet to do anything with. The everyday wash cycle is nearly three hours!!! And I have often has yellow streaks through white laundry which I had the engineer out for and had to buy some special crystals. ABSOLUTELY HATE IT DO NOT BUY John Lewis is my favourite shop and sell good quality items, very surprised they sell this!! 14 June 2014
Not recommended to anyone This is the 3rd zanussi machine I have had. Bought this 2 months ago.I wish I had never bothered. Washes ok but it's the spin that's all wrong. On a mini load it doesn't spin properly and sometimes not at all, if you want to hand wash anything and spin it you can't because it has a sensor that stops it. If you want to wash one or 2 things no matter how big ie I washed a curtain by hand then tried to spin it even though it filled the drum it wouldn't spin. Been told by the repair people that that's the way it's made. You have to have a full load or not bother. So I have to pack the machine out with towels if I want to spin anything short of a full load then I have to dry all the towels as well. There are lots of better machines out there believe me I wish I had never bought this one. 27 May 2014
Some drawbacks I think you maybe get what you play for! We had A more expensive model prior to this and would opt for another next time. The washing time is too long and the results aren't as startling as they ought to be considering this. The spin speed is good but again it doesn't have an automatic cut down on spin speed when the load is uneven, this means it bangs and moves when this happens. The noise level doesn't bother me but it is housed in a utility room. I wouldn't recommend this washer. 29 April 2014
