Rated 3 out of 5 by from SURPRISE DISCOVERY I bought this machine three weeks' ago and it does do a good wash. However, I was shocked when I discovered that it doesn't do a hot wash nor a warm wash. You can set it on Hot or Regular, but all it does is put a bit of hot water in first and then it fills with cold water. I do miss having the choice of a warm or hot wash where the water is actually warm/hot throughout the cycle. The support team told me that the above applies to all the washes; i.e. little bit of hot water to dissolve the soap powder, and then loads of cold water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back To Basics Easy to use (or so the Mrs tells me) Not designed to be overly attractive with the glass lids and fancy colour schemes etc. Just a nice sturdy washing machine. "Upgraded" to this from a Samsung which was nothing but an "attractive" machine with fancy selling points like jet wash, jet cycle, super extreme spin cycle bla bla bla. That unit lasted 4 years and was a nightmare when loads were unbalanced etc for much of that 4 years. This unit reminds me a lot like the washing machine mum and dad had. The washing machine that lasted 20 years. As the title of my review says, back to basics. Has an agitator, huge tub 10kg capacity which is handy for a 7 person family. No gimmicks like jet wash bla bla bla just a very well build heavy duty washing machine. Highly recommend! Very happy with the machine!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not satisfied I bought this washing machine 4.8years ago. I didn't like this becuase this machine always left lots of lint to clothes. There is no lint filter, it says it clears lint automatically but it doesn't. Also I found the same problems which other person reviewed, such as 1)if you pause it for longer than 3 minutes, it will drain your water. 2)if you pause the machine to throw an item in, it will start back at the original time, not where you paused it. 3)you CAN’T soak your clothes for longer than the soak time of 2 hours. I hated this washing machine and wanted to buy a new washing machine for a long time. After 4.8 years passed, this machine started to lose balance and it started to jump, stop, etc. I don't recommend this washing machine.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not reliable enough I bought this machine 4 years ago. Had to get the balancing rods replaced after having it 18 months because it kept knocking and coming up with an overbalance fault. Also sometimes get lint and washing powder still on the clothes. Clothes get caught up in the agitator fins due to the design, especially clothes that have cords or straps. Recently one of the fins has broken off, and after reading other reviews seems to be a common problem. And last of all, my machine has stopped working all together. Wont start at all, no lights light up. I suspect its an electrical fault. Starting to regret buying this machine as I went to the local auction to look at buying a secondhand machine and unfortunately there were heaps of this model washing machine there, that had faults with them and needed fixing. They aint built to last like in the old days.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very dissapointed Just bought this machine and hate it. It uses so so much water "does its own thing' drains when it wants to adjusts automatically the water temperature. Will not comply with chosen wash set up. I am going to sell it and take the loss.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super happy My 14yo FP machine finally gave up and I stuck with a brand I trusted and replaced with this machine - super happy, very nice machine. Easy to use and SUPER, SUPER QUITE. We always had to close the laundry door, this one you forget it on its so quite. I like the new style console - soft touch. 10kg is huge and would easily fit a large families need.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from terrible Purchased 3 months ago, Can Not personally recommend, how can your items of general clothing get washed if the machine doesn't let enough water in to cover them? If you want them covered to get a reasonable wash stand by with buckest of water to get the job done. only positive thing i can highlight is the machine spins the clothes really dry. Never again will i buy or be recommended to spend my $$$$ on this brand.
