Decent quality machine
Bought this as a replacement for an older machine that started to give after 5 years. This hasn't missed a beat and gets used 5 - 10 times a week (big household), and well worth the price. I was hesitant about buying the brand Beko, but as far hasn't been any reason not to trust it.
Very Good quality product at a good value price!
Machine washes fantastically for the the price. It has an extremely quiet inverter motor that accurately adjusts wash speeds according to the program selected. There are more wash options than you can poke a stick at, to which you only end up using about 4 of the 16 wash options realistically, however you may need to study up a little to find the right wash cycle that best suits you, as these cycles are not like the ones we are used to from previous generation washers, they are quiet specific. But once you worked out the cycles, it's a set ...and forget. There is a quick cycle button that speeds up most of the cycles for those with busy lifestyles by reducing the preselected cycle time by 20% with virtually the same results ( providing your clothes are not heavily soiled). It does also feature a genuine Wool cycle endorsed by the Australian Wool association, a feature not found on many similar machines. It has an adjustable spin speed of up to 1400 rpm which is more than enough for an excellent drying result. The Beko washers are genuinely manufactured in their own factory of origin in Turkey, not somewhere else outsourced like most other brands have now done. Energy rating is reasonably average for this price point, still a huge improvement if migrating from a top loader washer. As with the warranty being 2 years parts and Labour and 10 year guarantee on the motor. Beko are now manufacturing machines for other brands under license, and is rated as the second largest washing machine manufacturer in Europe behind BOSCH. Overall value for money is excellent, with overall quality as good, overall wash result very good, overall energy rating ( for comparative front loaders ) as average. Overall opinion is: Excellent choice for buyers on a budget offering value for money with good to very good quality & wash result. They are well established in the Australian market place. Cannot go wrong with this machine!!
good wash, unfortunately major fault
My beko machine has a good choice of washing cycles, even a short cycle which still gets my clothes clean. It also has a pet hair removal system and is good on water consumption, and pretty quiet. Unfortunately at just 18 months old it had a catastrophic fault when the counterweight broke, as it was still under a 2 year warranty Beko have replaced my machine with a new one, and my warranty begins again, I can honestly say the after sales service was excellent.
Great washer, it has a great fast option for washing that cleans well its not loud and we are very happy with it, we have had it for a while now with no problems and I would recommend it to anyone the spinner drys cloths well also.
Highly recommended this front loader
Wat can i say everything about it is perfect just what i was looking for 5 star and great on water and rinse etc just a little loud but can cope with it and my favorite features are the pet clean button excellent with everything clothes come out brand new

Great machine, incredible price!
Bought it at JB HI-FI during a sale for $584. I chose this machine based on size and wash cycle times. I do 2-3 loads a day so needed a short cycle without compromising wash quality. Very happy after 2 months, tried a few other cycles as well and so far it has been great, uses little water!
Thought I'd make a change to type of machine and glad I did!
I bought my Beko while on promotion and at first was overwhelmed by the different operation and controls to my previous top-loaders, but eventually came to really like it. It is fairly quiet but sometimes can spin a bit loudly. It is amazingly soap-efficient - in fact I use truly about a quarter of what I've used with all of my other washing machines - very economical on soap and also on water. At first I found it hard to accept just how little soap powder or fluid is needed and I had to keep running the rinse and spin function to get rid of...it, but have now adjusted to its needs. The only thing I don't like about front loaders is that you can't open the door to add further clothes once the cycle has started! I had some initial slight issues with the door refusing to open after the wash completed but a maintenance guy came out and replaced the door. Service Department are very understanding at Beko also, and I found they will do what they can to help if and when there's an issue. I haven't yet used all features on the Beko, but I'm happy so far.

Very quiet couldn't believe it. After noisy top loader.
Runs well did 12 loads in 2 days never missed a beat
Clothes clean well even with small amount of laundry powder or liquid
Good range of cycles
Only complaint is towels are rough which is apparently common in front loader
Has short cycle and variety of wash cycles
Just love it.
This is the first washing machine front loader I have ever bought and I must say I am very impresed with it . Im amazed how quite and efficient it is but most of all I like the animal hair removal feature it has as I have a cat that maults over eveything..
Absolutely love it!
After having a secondhand top loader for 10 months and hating it because it would hardly clean anything (and the lint collector hardly worked!) I finally bought this front loader and I absolutely love it! I used a 7kg one a few months ago at a friends house and I looked into one after loving the efficiency of it. I bought this 8kg one and I'm never going back to a top-loader again!
I use cloth nappies for my child and it gets them so clean! I love that it takes less time to get a high quality wash as compared to twice that when using a top-...loader. I especially love the 90°C option that I use on dirty towels and bedding! The highest spin speed really helps get rid of any excess water and I could honestly go on and on about this amazing washing machine. The only thing I don't like about it is that it has only one water inlet (cold) and even with a 4 star energy rating it is very electricity hungry and causes my house's fuse to overload if I have it on at the same time as my oven.
great washing machine
Washes. Rinses well best machine for price water and power ratings. Can't fault in any way very quiet to run. Pet hair removal and quick 14 min wash are my favorite features. Very well made . My whole house will soon be all beko appliances. Great value for money .
Wife punishes this and keeps going.
Washes and spin dries fantastic.
It does around 10 to 15 load a week and doesn't miss a beat.
I never used Beko before but now I think if their other products are half as good them I will give them a try.
I believe their washing machines are made in Turkey(Europe).
Very happy Customer
Good where it matters - quiet, good price and looks smart
Amazing! So quiet! But a bit of a mixed bag this one. Done settings are elite- couldn't ask for better. Like cottons and cottons eco. Daily 28 is amazing and so efficient. Some others like sportswear clean is really poor. Same with Mix 40 40. Basically this machine has lots of wag cycle options. Basically the traditional 3 or 4 cycle options are fantastic. The remains wash cycle options may looks impressive but aren't worth the go. For show really. Which is fine, given the price is very reasonable. If I had paid more for this machine I wouldn't...be satisfied. But like I said it's very competitively priced, so I have no major issue with the product boasting elite cycle options, but really only built for the 3 or 4 standard cycle washes that come with every washing machine. Hey, maybe it's a process of feedback and refinement. Hope so, but hope the price doesn't go up as a result! We wanted medium range trust Bosch, but couldn't afford for our first home. I am somewhat obsessive with washings and do 2-3 loads a day easily (all on eco settings of course!) Given we were dreaming with our Bosch wishlist, this washing machine actually came up trumps as a more cost effective options for furnishing our first home. Plus, I was a die hard top loader fan. But this Beko front loader has been great so far (purchased about 4 months ago). Good buy all in all.
I would like to be able to say I love this machine, but I can't. It isn't all bad though as it does have some good points. Firstly, it's quiet, even when spinning, in fact the only noise you hear is the water sloshing on the door. It also has a large bowl, and by far it's best feature is the very wide door which opens 180c enabling blankets and doonas placed easily inside, and it spins so well with clothes being almost dry, but that's it. On the other hand it is so sloooow with cottons taking up to 3 hours and 17 minutes and eco cotton 2 ho...urs and 20 minutes, so in a 7 hour day you would only get 2 loads washed. I also found it doesn't wash so well with one lightly soiled item having to go back for another wash. I found half the detergent left after one load, so if only half is being used the washing won't be clean. And would you believe it does not tell you when it has finished, and even worse, if you don't attend to it immediately it turns itself off, and as I had gone out and returned expecting the load to have finished, when I found the machine turned off I thought I might be suffering dementia and forgotten to turn the rotten thing on, however after reading the book I found out about that little trick. I bought it to match my beko dryer but it doesn't even do that as the dryer is nothing like it with the word beko written differently. One hopes that with each new product it will make your life easier, but this sure hasn't. I have to fiddle to get the time manageable then the temperature and spinning speed becasue I want to get all my washing done in one day and not stretched out over a week. By far the hardest fault to deal with for me is the lack of a finished signal, I hate not having one. In 2017 I'm having to set my kitchen timer to tell me when the washing is likely to be finished. I wish you could find these things out before you buy a washing machine, but here I am stuck with it now. So if you are like me with 4 or 5 loads of washing and want it all done the same day DO NOT buy this machine becasue it's not for you!
I only write what I don't like
I use it for 2 years, so far so good. What I found:
1. Very noisy compare with all machines that I had used in my life. No matter how I adjusted those legs, the bigger load the sharper vibration.
2. Buttons on the front panel don't feel good, I have to physically stay there until it works properly. I don't think I could manage it if i'm blind
3. Remember keep the machine dry by opening the door after run, in order to get better ventilation, I usually pull the detergent dispenser out a bit to let the machine breathe
Overall it's a good value one
Great quiet machine, love the 28 minutes wash cycle..full 8 kg. hardly using any washing liquid very cost effective, my white clothes come out supper clean and my boys have white sports uniform, I used to soak and scrub. machine needs to be level for less vibration..Great value for money. Love this machine.
Excellent, inexpensive washing machine
Have had this washing machine for about 4 weeks and am loving it. It is an 8kg machine. The quick washing programs are a godsend for just washing out a couple of items that don't go into regular washes or for clothes not that dirty but just need a quick wash. The quick wash is ideal for the bed linen that hadn't been used for a while because of seasonal use. This machine has a bigger drum as the door doesn't have the glass taking up half the room inside so putting in larger quantities has been great with 3 teenagers and a husband. It is quiet -...I couldn't believe how quiet. Strangely it doesn't beep at the end of cycle. I find I have to use 2 hands to open the door mechanism as it is quite big. It seems to be more gentle on the clothes than my previous machine. Overall I would highly recommend this machine.
Not worth repairing
I bought this machine about 2 years ago after reading the reviews online.. overseas this brand is popular and rated highly.. It did wash great but once my warranty passed my screen went and then when I had the serviceman come to put a new screen the new screen took out the motor.. The serviceman told us don't bother repairing it as it will cost us more. Out went the Beko and in came in another machine.. Oh don't ring the Beko customer service they are very rude and won't listen to what you have to say. Cheap product but I think they need to lift their game if they want to stay in the market in the next 10 years!
Ok so just got the old discontinued model replaced under warranty with this machine after 10 weeks, anyway from the word go the machine wanted to vibrate itself out the door, the heavier the load the worse it got and im talking about 4 medium size towels and a tea towel not game enough to load it up anymore than that as the noise it makes sounds like its going to tear itself apart.So back on the phone and no diplomacy this time as far as washing goes the short cycles do not seem to wash the soap out properly and agree with another review that i...t seems to use to little water the longer cycles seem to do the job and spins the water out of the clothes on max spin quite well even better once repaired i would imagine but as the machine wants to walk out the door on spin cycles and deafen us with the noise it makes we haven't put very many clothes through so this review may be a little premature but from experience with the last model and this model things are not looking good, I think fisher n paykle will be my choice from now on should this one not be repaired to satisfaction anyway i shall update as soon as the service repairman/woman has had a crack at it
No problems so far, does a great job
Cleans the clothes very well, the pet hair removal function seemed to work, it just rinses them a bit more.
Sometimes I think it uses too little water, but I haven't noticed anything wrong with it. It's very quiet, and really for the money it's great. Why would you pay more for another machine when this one works fine?
The delicate modes are great, and delay works perfectly

finally had it replace with alot of arguing and fair trading but it tooks weeks. DONT BUY BEKO!!!
Not any good washing machine only lasted 8 weeks! Terrible service from Beko and All Australian White Goods. Finally had it replaced weeks later but only with alot of arguing, constantly calling them and fair trading being involved!! Dont expect any service from these companies the people on the phone from Beko were very rude and just dont give!
Wish I had NOT Bought This Machine
I was talked into buying this machine by the sales staff. I went in to buy another Bosch but the staff rubbished it and pushed me into buying the Beko. I have tried all of the different settings but not one of them rinses properly. My washing is still full of suds and I have to do an extra rinse every time. More power used, water used and time wasted. Even when the extra rinse is done there is still sudsy water coming out. I have tried different washing powders but it makes no difference. I currently use only ½ recommended and still suds galore...and the clothes not clean. This machine is crap but sadly we are stuck with it as we are pensioners and can't afford another machine. Also, it is hard on the clothes. I recently bought 2 beautiful Sheridan towels and after one wash the edges were fraying......... It is quiet which is the only feature I like.
Waste of Money!!
I got talked into this machine by the sales staff and I really regret buying it! I was told it had an impressive 1 hour wash cycle that could wash 8kg of clothes - and technically it can, if your clothes are basically already clean. If there is any trace of dirt/food on your clothes don't bother (I have 4 children so their clothes get plenty of wear in a day) - unless of course you are happy to wash at 60degrees then it does an ok job, but I find this destroys our clothes over time. Because that wash cycle doesn't get my clothes clean I have to...use a cycle that goes for 2 1/2 hours!! (and still does a pretty ordinary job of getting our clothes clean). I bought a bigger machine so I could get more washing done in less time - it now takes me longer to get through the washing than my 6kg bosch did (which was amazing!). The whites come out dull, the blacks come out looking fluffy, even if washed separately. If I accidentally wash a face washer/towel in with our clothes it looks like they were rolled on by a fluffy dog shedding its fur! It is by far the worst machine I have ever owned! The only bonus it has is that it is reasonable quiet, no louder than any other machine I've owned.
