“Great performance but unreliable, great customer service”

Written on: 28/11/2012

We've had our CR02 about 10 years. We've now got 4 kids and it does 2 loads a day. I would say it's done over 6000 washes. We paid about £800 if I recall, so that's about 13p a wash. Not bad. Washing performance has always been perfect. It has, however, had its fair share of issues. Faulty circuit boards and displays seem to be the worst, ours must had had several replaced. So on top of the £800 I would guess we have paid for 3 services in 10 years, that's about £300 extra. I… Read Full Review

“Good looks but over-engineered and always faulty!”

Written on: 20/04/2012

The Dyson engineer may as well have his own door key! I have virtually every part of it replaced, it looks the door on you and holds your knickers to ransom until the general 2 week wait for an engineer! I have had the same particular problem happen five times, I'm not going to fork out another £99 when it will only go wrong again in another 13 months - which will be another payment! Dreadful machine, poor customer service and weeks to wait for an engineer! I really wished I'd purchased a… Read Full Review

“I would not buy another Dyson washing machine. I have...”

Written on: 10/02/2009

I would not buy another Dyson washing machine. I have owned my Dyson CR02 Flowcheck for just 4 years and in that time I have had the engineer out at least three times. This is poor in comparison with the hard working reliable machine that I used when my children were young and then the machine was used daily - often twice daily.

I am not convinced that the twin drum was more effective and I never got around to using the extra large capacity… Read Full Review

“After over 3 years use, a few days ago our CR02 'door...”

Written on: 20/10/2008 by Boavista (1 review written)

After over 3 years use, a few days ago our CR02 'door lock light' wouldn't go out when the programme finished, so the washing couldn't be removed. After reading that Dyson have a standard call out charge of £85 I phoned our local repair man who said he could fix it and would charge £45 call out. He was very helpful but busy and hadn't turned up by 5pm so I decided to open the machine myself, after unplugging it. The top comes off after removing 2 screws at the rear but it isn't easy to go… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/06/2008 by Diane F (1 review written)

Bought my first Dyson 6 years ago had a problem within the year which they came out and fixed. Had another problem outside of warranty (due to daughter putting something in the machine which blocked it) and they again didn't charge me for the repair. 2 years ago I broke the soap tray and contacted them to see if I could buy another and they said they would send an engineer as I was due an upgrade to the electronics (again free of charge). When the engineer came he said the drum was out of… Read Full Review

“As a mum with four children and a husband at home, I...”

Written on: 13/09/2007 by bigmama2 (1 review written)

As a mum with four children and a husband at home, I rely on my washing machine "doing the job". I have practically had my whole machine rebuilt. If you are considering buying this - make sure you take out the extended warranty as call outs are £85 a time. The control panel is not sealed - given that most people have their machine next to the sink, this is a major problem. I am now on to my fifth control panel. I have also had problems with packing screws not being removed at delivery… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/06/2005 by broadbean (1 review written)

So far we are happy with this Dyson CR02 Flowcheck. This machine looks great ("it's a monster", commented a male visitor admiringly). It's intuitive to use, but the manual is so well written I read it anyway. Has a handy coin trap, and child lock that has so far mystified our 2year old. You can fit a very large load of laundry - about double our old standard sized Zanussi, even though it's rated at only half again the capacity. You can get at your washing as soon as the cycle has finished… Read Full Review

The Dyson CR02 Flowcheck is a good looking machine with good delivery, however, do not expect to pay this kind of money for something to go wrong immediately and not be offered a replacement… Read Full Review

“Changed out our Bosch WFO2465 for a Dyson CR02...”

Written on: 19/01/2005 by jon cochran (2 reviews written)

Changed out our Bosch WFO2465 for a Dyson CR02 Flowcheck. The Dyson uses lots of water during the wash so clothes slosh around in hot, soapy water right from the start. The 2 drum action pulls the clothes in all different directions, opening the fibres, cleaning them extremely well and in good time. Clothes seem to come out of the machine feeling much softer. If you want a machine that cleans just like washining machines used to (before they became all water friendly!) get a Dyson… Read Full Review
