We've had this machine just over 2 years, only two of us is no heavy usage, it's predessor lasted for years. The other day After a cycle had finished I opened and noticed a strange fishy type of smell combined with oily smell and noticed washing Machine had moved several inches out from its normal place! We checked it and reward the laundry watching closely. Used a couple of times more no problem, today it's happened again, after spinning that smell and a heat coming from inside after cold...

I purchased this machine and after three days the GLASS IN THE DOOR SHATTERED all over my kitchen floor for no reason???? Luck for me this happended at night and not when my 5/6 year old's were stood infront of it.It does not bear thinking about. This product should be recalled. I purchased from Dixons and it took me all day to get someone to listen to me. My clothes are ruined and I have declined the offer of a replacement. An absolute death trap waiting to happen. Why has this not hit... (read more)

Its quite obvious that the good reviews for this machine are false. It is that good a product that Beko Uk have stopped supplying it direct. Not only is it a death trap .They do not want anything to do with those units already sold . The spares dept are not very helpful , you cannot get any technical info from the because that would make them liable if any one got injured and the one we have does a Belly dance inside its housing . Absolute rubbish!!!!!!!! If you are unfortunate to have the... (read more)

This has just happened to us, on saturday morning, our washing machine got louder and louder making a 'thudding' noise, as my mum walked over to it asking whats that noise, and as it got much louder she pressed the power button and held it in and the power went off, then a massive bang! the glass exploded all over our floor even reaching the other end of the room and hitting the ceiling! luckily with only a couple of scratches on my arm, my mum wasnt hurt, but it was bad enough! the clothes...

I bought this machine from Tesco Direct, I had been told to go for a slower spin cycle as it would last longer so I thought the 1200 would be great along with the large load capacity especially with having 4 young children. To begin with it was great especially with having the quick washes. However after 10 months the washing was coming out soaking wet and full of soap powder. Had an engineer out who replaced 2 parts, 3 days later same happened again, had engineer out again and apparently... (read more)

I bought the machine from Tesco Direct in April 2011 and on the 23 Sept 2011 I placed a light load of pajamas and two towels into the machine. When the machine started to spin there was a loud thudding noise . When I walked into the kitchen to investigate the glass on the front door of the machine exploded across my kitchen and into my living room which is many feet away. Please do not buy this machine it is a death trap and as ive seen on this forum iam not the only one this as happened to.... (read more)

I have owned this machine since February and last week the glass blew out of the door shredding my washing and leaving a trail of glass fragments luckily we were not in the same room as I dread to think what might have resulted from this. I bought the machine from Currys who were less than helpful and when I rang BEKO they said they could do nothing till the engineer had looked at it which I am waiting for at this moment. Having read an earlier review I think this machine should be... (read more)

I was looking for a washing machine that was easy to use, held enough to cope with my wife and I plus 3 daughter's. Not an easy task for any washing machine.
This machine did not cost the earth and does exactly what i required.
Its key points are the amount it can carry, It is so easy my 6 year old could work it and the fact it has a countdown timer on it (something I didnt realy care about before).
Have not came across any bad points. (read more)

the machine is quiet and effecient with a good spin result and various programmes to control the length and thoroughness of the wash cycle.the exceptional 8kg load in a machine in this price bracket makes it an ideal choice for a larger family (read more)

When I first bought this I thought it was great however 3 months down the line and the machine glass on the door blew out, I'm lucky I wasn't in the room with my newborn daughter. An engineer came out and believes that the glass must have had a fault with it and has never come across this before. Bought from Argos so am reciviing a replacement on Wednesday. I think I will wait at least 6 months before writing another review. I am currently trying to get reimbursed for our clothes which... (read more)

Very disapointrd. Leaks radonmly, poor build quality on door means that safety feature prevents from switching on and switches off in mid wash. (read more)

Pros: BEKO is not a designer brand name but the product is of excellent build quality, easy to use, very very quiet, efficient and one of the most cost effective on the market. Easy to read LED screen and electronic programming. Was C from zero to 90. Top marks BEKO.
Cons: like all new machines, cold water feed only. (read more)
