Worst washers ever
I fix washers. Have done for about 5 years now. Beko washers are basically unfixable with their motor design. When the motors fail, and that’s about the only problem I’ve had to try to fix you’d have to buy a new one and hence not worth it. They’re all quite new that I get hold of. Current one is 3 years old. Flashing wash signal. Chuck it.
worst machine i ever had
this is the worst machine i have ever owned. tried with no luck for any help from the company except for her to argue with me that there was no problem. no help at all from the local fix it guys. their recommendation was to never own a beko and they are an agent for it.
Purchased in April 2017 for $800.00.
Illegal trade practices and shocking customer service
Loved my Beko machine - I raved about it to everyone. After 3 years, a spring in the door has broken so it won't open. I called Beko and asked for them to send someone out under statutory warranty, as this is a "major fault" (you know most washing machines require an opening to use successfully), and a $1k machine should last more than 3 years under mandatory statutory Australian warranty. I was told, and I kid you not, "the door is a moving part so it's not covered, as you use it." I explained very patiently that I did in fact purchase the was...hing machine to use it, here's the funny part, as a washing machine. I then explained that this advice was in fact illegal under trade practices law. The "customer service" person actually giggled at me and said "okay!". I was told I'd need an assessment at my own cost of $189 from a separate contractor company (who later confirmed this was non-refundable for warranty claims and did not include parts). I asked to speak to a manager, was told he was busy and would call me back, and guess what, a week later he hasn't so they must be pretty busy with other broken products and fighting legitimate claims in small claims court. I'd never purchase a Beko again.
Had a few minor issues
The led indicator seems to be playing around sometimes works other times is blank. The cold water pipe was bent on install and now sticks up but the washing machine still works. It hasn't removed normal day stains and has left powder like grit over some cloths and it has rattled around the floor a few times too

It's a Washing Machine & It works..
I normally go for the high end products but bought this to keep the husband happy with the cost.
It is quiet.
Washes the clothes well. Clothes are not worn by using this machine.
No chime/sound to let you know the load has finished, and seeing our laundry is downstairs that is a feature that I would like.
Sometimes I have to make sure that the start button is pressed hard to make sure it starts.. as we have had times where we have pressed start & the machine hasn't actually started.. it is not a soft touch button...
It is not a washing machine that I would recommend to someone.
So far it has not given us any grief in any way of break downs... but next time I'll be going for a higher end machine.
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

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!
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.
Questions & Answers
machine works well once started, however you have to push the door closed with a fair bit of pressure to getit to start ,a lot more than previously.
