We’ve had our washing machine for over five years and in that time we’ve needed two repairs, with the most recent earlier this year. It seems now is a good opportunity to take a look at what’s out in the market as sooner or later, it will be more cost effective to buy a new one than to keep repairing our current one.
Not long ago, I mentioned about how Beko’s new air-cool technology cut the cost of laundry and how I installed the washing machine with the help of my husband. It is very straightforward but required a lot of strength to take out the transit bolts. The washing machine is 65 cm deep by 60 cm wide by 84 cm tall. It should fit nicely into a 60 cm by 60 cm by 86 cm kitchen under-counter. Please take a look at my previous post here on how to install it.
Setting it apart from other products on the market, the innovative drying technology in Beko’s state-of-the-art washer dryer can save you thousands of litres of water per year, compared to standard machines. This advanced design, along with an A energy rating, means machine-cleaning laundry is now more affordable than ever before.
Having tried it out for a week now, I am very pleased with it. I will blog again in a few weeks time after using it for a bit longer. It was delivered to us but we installed it on our own. This is not the first time we installed our own washing machine.
In this video, Dr. Pixie McKenna gives her top tips for ensuring laundry is clean and bacteria free. I was not aware that when doing a wash at low temperatures, bacteria remains in the washed clothes. This is very scary research.
