The machine is high-quality and modern. The build quality is excellent and the machine is very sturdy and solid. Its 9kg drum capacity is great for our family of four, and is A+++ energy rating is great for me, the bill payer.
It’s really simple to use, navigating through the programmes is done with a single dial. You can also then customise the programmes with options to change the temperature and spin speed, etc.
There’s an option to shorten the durations of a cycle, which I’ve found useful for normal/lightly soiled laundry if I’m in a rush. There is also an Eco option, which saves energy by decreasing the programme temperature and extending the washing time, which I use when time isn’t an issue.
You can even add a steam function at the end of a programme; this noticeable reduces the creases in the washing and makes ironing much easier, which I’m a huge fan of.
All the information is displayed on the big, bright display which is very clear and easy to understand.
The detergent drawer is also easy to remove for cleaning, although a little stiff to pull out.
The combination of the “OkoMix” and “Soft Water technology” makes a noticeable improvement from our last machine. Our washing is much softer and smells wonderful. The smell of the fabric conditioner is much more evident and lasts far longer. I’m also washing at much lower temperatures than previously and getting better results.
I haven’t used all the programmes on the machine as yet; I use the OKOPower programme a lot. It’s great for removing stains from my son’s cricket whites. The wash takes just under an hour which is ideal as it’s quickly ready for his next game.
The 20 minute programme is fantastic for freshening up my daughter’s school uniform, removing all visible stains.
The anti-allergy wash is also a favourite. My daughter and I both have allergies, and I’ve used this programme for towels and bed linen as it helps remove pollen and other allergens, as well as germs and bacteria.
The washing machine also has a great steam programme which I’ve used more than I thought I would. It’s great to refresh clothes without having to rewash them, and everything comes out relatively crease free making them much easier to iron.
The washing machine is also amazingly quiet, even when spinning. It is by far the quietest machine I’ve ever owned. It’s so quiet that I’ve had to go and check it’s still working on several occasions.
This is an excellent washing machine, perfect for our family, and it also comes with a 5-year warranty. Brilliant.
