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.
First front loader, very happy
I bought this machine after my experience with a Beko dishwasher. My Simpson top loader was not performing well and leaving our farm clothes dirty. The price compared to similar sized brands was very competitive. I find this machine to be easy on delicates and woolens, but at the same time I am extra pleased with how well our work clothes come out. Grease and oil are easily removed. I like that you can alter water temperature and spin intensity even after you've started a cycle. The only down side is the length of time a cycle takes, but I only use the 'cotton' cycle for the farm clothes and the daily quick for almost everything else. I do about 6 loads of washing per week and am very happy with this machine.
Purchased in December 2017 at Bi-Rite Electrical Physical store for $645.00.
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.
Good wash programs and load size
This was a great buy for a large family we fill up the washer full each wash and everything comes ou super clean each and every time! Very little use of soap too. The programs are easy to select and have an option for all kinds of cloths including for our kids
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.

Washes well for a low price
Washing cycle for a good wash should be around 30 minutes and this washer does that with a 4 star weighting
Has a timer count down in minutes.
User is able to set spins as well a water temperature which is a bonus. The 1400 spin frequency gives a very dry output that saves drying time in the dryer however the washer does not overly vibrate at this high speed
The only difficulty is not being able to open the door to add that forgotten item but that is due to the higher operating water level in this brand.
This washer has a new tech inverter motor
5 year warranty too
Great Machine - Bargain price ! - more 4.5 Stars!
Got this to replace a samsung washing machine and this is signicantly better than the last one
Firstly the good parts
1) the wash is quite good - clothes come out clean and smelling good
2) its very very quiet!
3) it seems to dry clothes much better than the Samsung i had
4) from a distance - looks quite smart!
5) at the moment there is a 5 year extended warranty if you register with BEKO - cant go wrong
6) i paid $532, delivered, installed and the old appliance taken away - Bargain! - Bing lee matched Appliances online
negatives (and this is nit picking!) ...1) i wish it "beeped" at me when i select or start a wash - there is no response apart from a light to say its on 2) It doesnt beep when its done a wash 3) the buttons and door do look cheap - you can definetly see where costs have been cut Overall - seriously.. if it lasts 5 years.. its a bargain, and does exactly what you purchased it for - washes clothes. The bonus is that it does it very quietly!
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.
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
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!
