How it works

Westinghouse 8kg top load washing machine with 3 Energy Star rating, Time Adjust function, everyday fast wash programs, Save Favourite and durable glass lid with soft closing.

Effortlessly organise your busy life
With Time Adjust, you can increase or reduce the total wash times to fit into your life. Plus, when used with the clever Delay End function, you can even decide when you want it to end.

Save time with fast wash programs

Sometimes you just need to get a few things clean fast and that's where the super Quick 20 minute program comes in handy. The Daily 45 minute program is ideal of your regular loads.

Soft Closing, Toughened Glass Lid

Westinghouse's soft closing lid closes gently without force. This means no more loud bangs in the laundry and an end to tiny fingers getting in the way. The toughened glass is scratch resistant and can be used as an additional work space in your laundry room, meaning more space, less waste.

Westinghouse 8kg Top Loading Washing Machine is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money Purchased just over 3 years ago. Nothing but trouble. Often has errors come up. Use less washing powder despite being on “hard water” clothes don’t get clean. Loud. Was recently repaired because water pump was broken but also a leaky hose was found. Definitely would not purchase this brand again having been given the top loader as a substitute for the front loader which coincidentally also leaked from the first month we had it. They never took responsibility simply blame “too much washing powder”. Was too scared to return after they let us swap out for the top loader. Worst experience with household product purchase to date.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Westinghouse 8kg washing machine Good machine, I wish it had a clear glass top. Several set settings which are good, although I thought I might be able to change the temperature for the short washes but this is set. I didnt measure so it is a tight fit into my washing machine space. Washes well, Good spin so clothes come out quite dry so quick to dry on line. Fitted it myself as I didnt see where I could get it fitted by delivery persons. Was simple but a bit heavy, so if you need assistance ensure you sort this out when ordering, plus there was an extra fee for doing this.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Average .. I bought this a month ago but the washing powder tray does not dissolve and turns into a sticky hard paste when the wash is finished that you have to collect . I approached the customer service team for this brand and they advised to use fabric softener . Not good enough as always powder detergent , more economical . They weren’t interested and it’s a common problem . Shop around !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Falls a little short An efficient full wash cycle yet the 20 minute cycle lets the product down by not allowing the user to choose the water level.
