Love it !

I absolutely love this machine !
So many settings to choose from and it’s super quiet . It doesn’t have a little bell noise for when it’s finished so you need to make sure you remember you’ve got the machine on . Quick wash of 14 minutes 28 minutes, dark wash, hygiene was and so much more . Amazing machine and highly recommend it

Worst washing machine ever!!!!

published

The owner of Rezzie Electrical Store convinced us that BEKO was a great brand. We took his word for it rather than doing our own research. We have owned this machine now for less than 1 year and this is the second time it has broken down. This time it doesn't spin or drain water. The machine finishes it's cycle and the clothes are dripping wet and still has soapy water.
The other issues are - it goes off balance easily and therefore moves around and bangs into walls and cupboards. It's noisy and well.
I'm awaiting the service provider to call back from BEKO to book in another service call.

Be warned - do your research. Cheapo is NOT better.

Purchased in July 2020 for $625.00.

Problematic, I wouldn't buy Beko again

published

I bought my machine 4 years ago.
Two years ago the motor had to be replaced - they did that under warranty.
The handle snapped, it's flimsy so I need to use a teaspoon to get the door open now. And it has broken down again.
Four years old, no longer under warranty - will cost me too much to get a technician to see it and replace the motor so off to land fill it goes. It hurts my heart and as a single parent, it hurts my pocket.
Buy cheap - get cheap. I'm going back to Fisher and Paykel.

Washing machine is great and was at a great price with 5 year warranty.
It has all the functions that most of the big brands have without the price tag.

Poor quality interface

published

This machine seems to wash clothes OK but its software and interface are poorly designed.

My experience is this:

Turn on the machine by pressing the on button 3 times, sometimes more. I sometimes wonder if it will turn on or not.

When the machine turns on the status light says it's at the end of its last cycle. Press a button to cancel that even though the machine has been off.

Then try to start the next cycle: press the go button maybe four times. It takes a second to start so make sure you haven't pressed the go button twice and it's actually on pause. You need to wait for the sound of water running to be sure.

Disclaimer: I use this machine regularly but I did not purchase it myself. Thank goodness!

Great Product

published

I wash all clothing types from clothes, towels, linen etc.
It has a lot of different cycle types, 16 in fact and you can change the water temp, spin power also.
I did find most of the cycles too lengthy, especially the cottons eco cycle which is 3.17hrs.
I usually use the daily /quick cycle that's 28min.
Washes clothing very well, I can keep my whites really white and it is delicate with the gentle items.
Thoroughly washes items and quickly.
Distributes the washing powder and detergents well and clothes come out smelling great.
Spin cycle is quiet which is great.
I was also interested in the anti allergy wash cycle and pet hair removal feature which is a bonus.
Great product.

Would never buy again

published

My machine died after 3 years, bought this brand new. The Pet hair removal function didn't impress me. The machine lost power a couple of times, then the display screen failed. It was difficult to contact the helpline, seeing they only open during weekdays. I wouldnt buy Beko appliance ever again.

Per hair removal..... GREAT!

published

FANTASTIC!! even without pet wash cycle this machine is great. It removes pet hair quite well with and without the special function on. But when bet hair removal function is on (extra rinse cycle, does take a little longer) it removes 95% dog hair and we have a giant Kangal who is shedding. Fastest wash is a 14 minute wash for half loads. and 23 for a full load.. It isnt loud and doesnt make ant banging kind of noises... If you have a Snow dog or Mountain dog who sheds a lot of fur and want a solution, this is a good choice! the warranty is reasonable and the process is simple. all which needs to be done is, submit online.

Great machine.

published

Looks great and performs well. Is compact enough for a small apartment but big enough for family use. Functions are easy to understand and all wash cycles are explained in the instructions but are pretty self explanatory by their names. Can be noisy on 1400rpm, but great value for the money and quality of machine!!

Perfect all rounder

published

This is an awesome machine, we’ve had ours for 3 yrs and it’s not missed a beat, clean clothes every time, looks pretty, it’s uk made so you know it will las for a long time, it doesn’t use your hot water, heats itself up, so no worry’s with using your hot water tank, best machine I’ve bought in a long time !

Solid washing machine

published

We've had this for several months now. It performs well, no issues whatsoever. However, I'm just personally not a fan of the plastic buttons (a little wobbly), and sometimes I wish there was feedback when I've held the start button long enough. Also, I'm not sure why it happens, but in this time, there have been two times where it seems ready to open, but it's still locked.

I think this product does a good job washing because when I emptied out the bottom for drainage and cleaning, there was no soap residue buildup. That in itself is worth quite a bit.

Good washer

published

Purchased as had a similar one and the lock broke on door, and decided to spend extra on a new one other than waiting for door to be fixed, plus Jb took the old one away. Always good clean washing. Pet hair removal function not really that good. I've leveled it a few times but it still vibrates when spinning.

The hair removal function is hopeless

published

I got the machine three years ago, not sure about the model since I can’t find the manual. The machine still runs, but sometimes it doesn’t start washing after I changed the settings. I feel the pragram is faulty. And I bought it because it claims it can remove pet hair, I just got a puppy this year, and I started to realize that only few setting has this function, and the hair removal result is not good.

Good machine for the price

published

Bought about two years ago from recommendation. Would say it's a good machine for the price you pay. Great short cycle's for short washes however some do range over an hour. The only downfall is the clothes do not smell like they have been washed until you use expensive fabric softener.

Questions & Answers

Milly J.

Milly J.asked

My washing machine has stopped working. The display panel lights up and I press start but nothing happens. I have had the machine for 3 years, I was washing towels today and for some reason it threw a fuse in the power box mid cycle. I have switched it back on but now I have the above problem. Is there a re set button combo I could try like in other models? Mine is the WMY7046LB2.
Thank you.

Hi Milly I had my machine for 18 months. Ever since I bought it I had issues. It was shattering, and leaking as well.
They sent a technician and he said I may put too much washing powder. I reduced the amount of washing powder I use. Still it was shattering. He came back and said the floor is not leveled. He took the machine and tested for few days came back and said no fault found. He used my own rubber mat to put underneath and said he would come back with rubber foot year ago. I'm still waiting. In the mean time I made a complaint someone from Beko called me but they didn't help. He said im doing something wrong. The only reason they called me, on the feed back it says if they don't get back to me within two business days the feedback goes on public.
My machine is still leaking and shattering after following all the troubleshooting they provided me.

I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS BRAND TO ANY ONE.

Milly Please raise a complaint although it 3 years old, it should be covered under ACL.

Good Luck
Regards

Hi Milly, sounds similar to what ours was doing. Seemed like the machine wasn't recognising that the door was closed and that it could now start. Sent it in expecting them to say we need a new door lock instead got told it was the PC board and main board quoting us $495. It was also just on 3 years old. Beko didn't respond on product review at all. Betta just told me it was out of warranty. Counted our losses and bought a secondhand Samsung. Best decision ever! So much quieter and works great.
Didn't realize how flimsy and loud the Beko was until replacing with a Samsung

My washing machine has stopped working midway through a cycle. The power box threw a fuse. I have switched it back on and the machine lights up on the display panel but won't actually start. Is there a re set trick or something I can try. Troubleshooting guide in manual didn't mention anything.
Thanks
