“No quality+no service = Bauknecht”

Written on: 25/10/2011

My washing machine broke down less than a year from purchase. Used with care and decalcifier, cleaned regularly. I called the Bauknecht service and got an appointment in 6 days. I was told the technician would come between 10am and 4pm (read: one has to take a day off to wait for him). He did not come. At 5pm on the appointment day Bauknecht called to cancel and reschedule for the following week. Same timing. Since the choice seemed to be - either keep your job or have a working washer - I… Read Full Review

“I bought my Bauknecht in 1992 and have used it...”

Written on: 10/12/2010

I bought my Bauknecht in 1992 and have used it continually. I bought it because it was the quietest machine on the market at that time. It has only had to seal replacements in that time and the odd minor repair by a local washing machine engineer. It is now starting to show signs of wear and tear in regards to the spin revolutions, and will need to be inspected again but on the whole I cannot grumble at all. However the original company are not those currently making the machine. I… Read Full Review

I bought my Bauchnect washing machine 6 years ago from Comet and took out the extended repair as I am ashamed to say they did a bit of a sales pitch on me. and it was a total waste of money. I would never buy an extended warranty on anything again… Read Full Review

“As the five year service cover on my Bauknecht WAE8987...”

Written on: 14/05/2008 by Lynn E (1 review written)

As the five year service cover on my Bauknecht WAE8987 expired, I was invited to take out a further one year cover at a cost of £118.00. This seemed a lot of money for 1 year, when there had never been a problem. Four months later, I wish I had the benefit of hindsight. The bearings have now worn out, I called in a service engineer, who is suggesting that I scrap the machine as the parts are so expensive, and the machine difficult to work on. He is afraid of seeing me pay a large bill for… Read Full Review

“We purchased a Bauknecht WAE8987 washing machine 2...”

Written on: 03/12/2005 by shirudell (1 review written)

We purchased a Bauknecht WAE8987 washing machine 2 years ago, and it has been used almost daily. The door and dials have been fiddled and played with by our young children, and I have to say we have been delighted with this machine's performance and reliability. It has never gone wrong, and if it does ever go wrong we paid an additional £50 or so to extend the Bauchnecht warranty to 8 years, so we have no concerns about repairs… Read Full Review

Bauknecht WAE8987 - Water stop indicator coming on to regular when there is no fault, brushes on motor, one half worn, the other ok ???? Replaced, the motor itself arc-ing, the machine is 18 months old, it does not have to contend with heavy laundry loads every week as there are only the two of us at home now. Local engineer does not seem to keen to work on it..........was bought from Comet… Read Full Review

“Don't touch one of these Bauchnecht WAE8987 washing...”

Written on: 10/02/2004 by BBARK (1 review written)

Don't touch one of these Bauchnecht WAE8987 washing machines if you want a prompt repair. We purchased a Bauchnecht from Comet 18 months ago. Our motor failed in January and Comet took over a week to come and assess the machine, quoted 10 days for delivery of the motor which then arrived a day late. We were then quoted a further week for an engineer to roll up and repair it - 25 days. Comet's disinterested reply was "we just sell the machines" when we pointed out that we had specifically… Read Full Review

I guess this is more of a Comet Issue. I had a major trouble with Coventry Comet Store. Even the Store Manager of the store was not willing to help.

<br/>I have no issues with washing machine BUT major issues with Comet stores overall especially after the worst experience in my life so far.

“Machine has a 'water stop' feature designed to prevent...”

Written on: 06/01/2004 by Siarli (1 review written)

Machine has a 'water stop' feature designed to prevent flooding, supposed to cut in if too much detergent put in or if a leak develops. This was cutting in with frequent regularity causing the machine to stop with a load inside and the display to flash A--A and F--F simultaneously. The solution - to unplug the machine, wait three minutes and remove the laundry, no further use would be possible for at least 24 hours when the machine would rest itself and a fresh cycle could be attempted… Read Full Review
