Is the Beko ECOWMB81445LW A+++ the best energy efficient washing machine at an affordable price?

Is this a low cost super energy efficient washing machine for the price conscious consumer? At just over £200 it certainly looks that way. This washing machine features a large 8kg drum, which means fewer washes per week. According to Beko you can wash 40 shirts in one cycle! However, there’s also a small load (2kg) setting for those more pressing requests, it takes just 14 minutes – ideal for the moody teenager looking for their party outfit to be washed or that panic school uniform wash!

How does Beko ECO WMB81445 LW compare to other 8kg washing machines in the market? In Sust-it’s energy efficiency ranking it looks pretty good – especially in our lifetime running cost comparisons – given the low purchase price. Our only concern would be that Beko are only offing a measly 12-month guarantee, compared to Panasonic and Siemens 5 year warranties. One of the longest guarantees comes from Miele with a fantastic 10-year warranty – albeit at a hefty purchase price! Warranties are no guarantee of reliability, but they are good indicators of manufacturers confidence that their products will stand the test of time. Changing your appliances every 2 or 3 years makes no sense for the environment or your stress levels!
