reliable washing machine
this is my very first washing machine that i've ever purchased and so far so good. it washes clothes quickly and has alot of features to wash clothes with. Even though its 5kgs, it fits alot of clothes in one load. There is only an outlet for cold water, so if i wanted to wash with a warm or hot temperature setting, the wash would take longer as the machine would heat up the cold water to the selected temperature. i would recommend this washing machine, but it would be better if there was an outlet for hot water as well, as this will reduce the washing time.
Pretty good for a small space
I am stuck with a small space, so needed a compact machine at the right price. I do really value a quality washing machine and this one isn't at the top end of the range, but it does suit my needs. There are enough functions to get by and the delay start function is definitely useful and well used. I do think it's a little harder to keep clean without clear lint drawers etc. but all up this is a pretty good machine at the lower end of the market.
Great little washing machine
I bought this for my apartment, and it is a very good and efficient little washing machine.
It cleans well and also rinses well, and it does not seem to wear out clothes.
Colours are vibrant and washing comes out clean everytime.
It is not the quietest washing machine, but it is definitely not excessively loud.
It has plenty of features as well for use.
I do have issues with cleaning big items like bedsheets and duvet covers, but that is expected with a 5kg washer.
Overall great economical washing machine.
Good clean but loud
First of all is does a much much better job than any top loading ones. That is like a different level. Clothes are being cleaned very well. On the downside it is quite loud - the suction ump is whining like a crazy. But sound is not annoying. There is 14 min program, which is very handy. All in all that is one of the best washing machines we had. Plus it is really small so can fit pretty much anywhere.
Cheap Reliable and fantastic little machine
Had this for over a year now, just want to make sure it is a good machine before I put the review on the website. I bought it on Appliance online, that was fantastic. The machine wash great. The clear screen has cracked when use 50c washing cycle, the printed words is rubbed off, but no biggie, I put labels next to the button. The machine never miss a beat. It's fantastic, easy to use, fast cycle is excellent, never tangle clothes. Worth buying for this price.
It does the job
This washing machine was purchased because of its compact size. It has many different cycle options, including short cycles, and is quite intuitive to use. Overall quite happy with this purchase. Have been using it once or twice a week for two years and have not had any problems. It is good value for money.
Great washing machine for small space
Brilliant washing machine - washes are quiet, quick and efficient. Cheap and small which is perfect for our tiny apartment. There is a great range of cycles to choose from which I like, and they all do the job well! Such great value for money, I would highly recommend. :)
No problems at all. In fact, a great little machine so far
Clothes are cleaned well, the quick cycle is fantastic, you can have clothes washed in 14-18 mins. I read a number of bad reviews and was concerned about the purchase.
I had limited choice as my laundry cupboard was not very deep (55cm deep) which meant my choice of washer under $500 was between 2 front load machines. This machine is perfect for small spaces. It is a little loud when it's on spin but it spins at up to 900 - 1000 RPm and its a small machine so its not that unusual. It may be better on a lower Rpm, I haven't tried. The sound is...
Hasn't skipped a beat.
This is one of the best appliances I've ever owned. I've had mine for about 5 year now, it washes clean, spins well, doesn't make much noise & has heaps of options.
The only pitfall with mine is that it doesn't have a hot water hose meaning that it heats up water in the machine. This is only a pitfall because my hot water is gas which would be cheaper than the electricity used to heat. Not a big issue as we mostly wash in cold anyway.
Previous reviewers saying it leaves powder reside, it sounds like you're overfilling. You really need to...leave at least 1/4 of the barrel space free for movement. Also, if it's ever seems too wet, check the instructions on emptying the little filter on the lower RHS, I tend to find my Bobby pins blocking the pump! Easy to empty. Great product, thanks!

So far so good
I'm actually very happy with my WM5, I live alone so it is very practical.
I love the daily quick setting as it only takes 39mins and the spin speed is 1000 so you cut down on drying as well.
At first I thought it was noisy though soon got use to it.
For the price $408 from 2nd Worlds who assured me that they don't get many complaints whereas Westinghouse lasted just on 2 years and only 1 year of actual useage.
Biggest piece of SH!T I have ever bought!!!
Where do I even begin with this bucket of snot! After the 1st month of purchasing, I came into my laundry to find bubbles and water all over my floor and a steady stream coming from the door and the detergent tray. Now NO I did NOT put to much powder in. So that was my first joyful experience....and this issue continued.
Next there was water leaking from out the bottom.
Next came ANOTHER water issue! When filling up, most DECENT washing machines cut off water supply once it is ready...well NOT Eurocrap! The machine continued to fil...l up and fill up and fill up, even when the machine was spinning, draining and TURNED OFF AT THE POWERPOINT!!! You could hear the water sloshing around in the detergent tray CONSTANTLY! So that was totally fun, especially the time when I had done a load of washing which has finished and the little lock symbol had finished flashing, not realising I opened the door to get my washing out only to have a machine still COMPLETELY FULL of water gush out all over my floor! Now if it was a decent machine the computer would have registered this and NOT allowed me to open the door. But no, not Euroturd! So now I have this other issue that had started this week. There is water CONSTANTLY leaking into the machine. It doesnt matter if the machine is turned off or not. So I came to realise this issue when I left the door open after a load of washing, I came back a couple of hours later to find water spilling out under my laundry door, I opened the door to find my wonderful Euromaid filled up with water and flowing out the front of it (the door was open) I am FURIOUS!! So I took out the detergent drawer and noticed that there is a consistent streams from 3 points, this left long enough is filling up the machine and pooling everywhere! So my only option is to scream "FOR F*CK SAKE YOU PIECE OF SH!T" and turn the water tap off and slam the door and vent here and warn you people NOT TO BUY THIS CRAP!!!!!

Broken belt and not fixed for 9 days already due to supply shortage
I have purchased it based on my friend's suggestion as he is using same model for few months. It was working fine for 10 months and started slogging. I wasn't having any clue on what was happening. On one fine day drum stopped rotating. I logged a call with Euromaid and they created a service ticket for a local service provider Wooleys. They came to check the problem after 4 days (due to the weekend) and reported the issue with belt and promised to fix it in 2 days as they just placed an order. No communication from them after 2 days, I had cal...led them to check what is the status. Person in the other side was very rude, not understanding that you are not having washing machine operational for more than a week. But to my surprise she updated me that it will take 7 to 10 days to get the belt supplied. Euromaid doesn't care whether the issue is resolved or not. I am seriously thinking of telling all my friends to not to buy this product and spend your time chasing it to have it fixed. I am happy that this is all happening during warranty. I would never buy this product also will not suggest anyone for Wooleys Appliance's service.

I bought this washing machine 2 years back and am experiencing problems with it from the very next month onwards once the warranty is over.Initially I had problems with bin and from July onwards facing problem with the door conceal.the customer care people are not supporting and am really disappointed.
Excellent machine for the price.
I have been using this machine for last two and half years. Used 3 to 4 times per week. Still works extremely well. Cleans & rinse cloths as I want. Easy to operate. Only drawback is bit loud.
Recommend this product for anyone who is looking a machine for low budget.
Started leaking from no where
This washing machine has been very reliable until recently, after 3 or so years using the washer 3-4 times a week it has started leaking a lot of water on the floor during the washing cycle. It is a constant drip under the machine during the wash cycle, Euromaid, any quick fixes to avoid em having to foot the bill for a technician? Happens to occur just after my warranty from Appliances Online lapses as well.
Great value for money
We are using it for 2.5 years. It experienced the birth of our second child and piles of dirty clothes and is doing great. It's a bit noisy but we don't have issue with that. I've had many leakages from the laundry powder drawer but assume it's because of the type of textile inside or not proper dosage of the powder for that particular cycle.
WM5 - built to last for two years
Unfortunately I purchased a Euromaid WM5 two years ago - just out of its warranty now, I had not used it much. It stopped in its cycle and filled up then leaked and turned my laundry into a flood zone! I called Euromaid and was advised that it was out of its warranty therefore I should call an electrician to check it out.
I had one give me a quote for its repairs and was advised that it's cheaper to buy another washing machine instead of investing in costly repairs because another part will soon break down and I'll be looking at yet another b...
Great machine at a good price.
Bought this washing machine based on reviews on this site. The Euromaid is a great little machine and handles our washing needs with no problems. It cleans and rinses our clothes very well and there are many different cycles to choose. It is quiet and efficient. My favourite feature is the easy to use dial to select the appropriate cycle. A great machine at a good price.

Good Little Machine
This is a good little machine. It's quiet and simple to use. I don't like that it's so thin, my 5kg dryer can't fit on top although the washing machine doesn't take up that much room. I also don't like that I can't just set it to cold, I have to remember to fiddle with the temperature everytime I use it. Other than that it's a fantastic washing machine. Much better than the samsung fire bomb I previously had.
Unhappy with rusty panels
Model is my machine is WM55. The machine was purchased less than 1 year ago and by now it has rusted through in each panel. That means that rust is showing at the panels (front, back, sides and bottom) and inside the machine on those panels when unscrewed. It appears that the machine will not last longer then another few months.
Despite so far of we are happy with the performance of the machine, we have to disregard this machine as our next purchase. It is also really wrong to have washing machine gone in just 1 year after using to wash cloth...

My euromaid WM 5 is stuck and it doesn’t matter which button I press nothing happens. I have unplugged it and left it all night. I don’t have the cancel option, my button says only stop/pause. The arrow is flashing and nothing I do changes the display.
