Review & giveaway | Beko washing machine

Washing. It’s never ending in this house. With 4 kids there are always school uniforms, football kits and pyjamas. Then there are my everyday uni clothes and my work uniform. Then there’s Kevin’s work uniform (which is often covered in oil). Add in bed sheets and towels and you can imagine just how much washing we do in an average week!

Our previous washing machine had a 6kg drum – which sounds big, but really isn’t. I couldn’t fit all the bed sheets in one load, and it meant doing a lot of separate wash loads – multiple times a day. So you can imagine my delight when Beko offered me a washing machine with a 9kg capacity – and a 28 minute wash time.

Now, I will say that installation wasn’t a breeze – not because the washing machine is difficult, but because Team KnowHow proved pretty tricky to deal with. Finally, after 3 cancelled appointments and a chat with a senior manager, we finally managed to get the machine in and running, and I couldn’t wait to try it out!

We chose the WX943440B freestanding washing machine for our utility room, and went for classic black. It is also available in white and red. Billed as the perfect option for big, busy families, this washing machine allows you to wash a large 9kg load in just 28 minutes. An LED time remaining display shows you how long your cycle has left, and the durable motor comes with a 10-year guarantee. Which all sounds pretty perfect so far, right?

It’s really easy to get going; everything is self explanatory. There are several different washing options – a daily cottons for everyday wear, which also has an eco option for energy saving. Then there are specific programmes for wool and hand wash items, a hygiene wash (ideal for a cloth nappy rinse) and an anti allergy setting, which features an extra rinse to remove any traces of washing powder etc. This is something we have found really useful for Max, with his sensitive skin and eczema. There is a child lock too, so no little fingers can change the cycle halfway through, or open the door and flood your kitchen.

Of course, the cycle I really wanted to try was the Daily Quick. I was dubious I’ll admit – is it really possible to get stuff clean in just 28 minutes?

Yes. It is.

We tried a white load first – school shirts (some covered in pen and grass – thanks Jacob), PE tshirts and light coloured home clothes. I was really surprised with how efficient the 28 minute cycle was – everything came out exactly as I would have expected after a longer wash cycle. There were no marks or debris left, and everything was ready for the tumble dryer. I had the same success with a coloured wash. The only thing it didn’t really work for was Kevin’s oily work uniform – but I can’t say I am surprised there as this often needs a hotter wash anyway. I have been using the Daily Quick for everything except work clothes (mine too, as it gets covered in all sorts and needs to be washed at a high temperature for hygiene) and bedding/towels. 

There is also a Super Short option, which washes 2kg of clothing in just 14 minutes – amazing for when you need something really quickly! This washing machine automatically reduces water levels for half or smaller loads, so you don’t have to worry about wasting water if you just need to get something clean in a rush.

I really like the freedom of the Daily Quick wash. Combined with the larger drum capacity, this means I can get all our washing done more quickly – and that’a  huge bonus in my book! I didn’t really appreciate just how big the drum was – until I managed to get a double bedding set and 4 single bedding sets in all at once!

There is nothing we don’t like about this washing machine. It sounds silly to say something like this has changed our lives, but it really has. It has taken away the amount of time we spend doing laundry, and is helping us to more eco friendly too – which has the added bonus of reducing our energy bills!

    Switch off all appliances when not in use. Low energy light bulbs and making sure lights are turned off when not needed. Save up washing to do full loads. Turn down heating so it’s more economical.

    Turning lights off, lowering the heating, not boiling a full kettle for one brew!

    I use LED bulbs, and I only turn on stove, boiler and washing machine when the lower tariff is

    Not leaving things on standby, and turning the heating down a degree or two 🙂

    I use my pressure cooker and slow cooker nearly every day as they use a lot less electricity than the cooker.

    We put extra layers on instead of turning heating up. Electrics not in use switched off at wall and don’t leave lights on

    We put on jumpers and socks rather than put the heating on, only light the rooms we’re in, watch TV in the same room and have hot drinks at the same time so we don’t have to keep boiling the kettle.

    Warm clothes around the house and always turn the lights off when leaving the room

    We have fitted either halogen or other very low energy bulbs in most rooms, use a dishwasher & turn the heating down a few degrees

    Switching off appliances when not in use, not leaving on lights when not needed. Use smallest oven in a double oven, don’t use such a hot wash programme and hang washing out or over airer indoors instead of using the tumble dryer.
