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.
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

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.
