Very disappointed in the product and service
This machine is not a cheapie, I bought this and the Heat Pump Condensing Dryer at the same time. The dryer is brilliant but the washing machine and the F&P service is a big let down.

Latest Consumer Questions
I recently purchased this washing machine after having a top loader all my life. I am disappointed that stains are not coming out that usually would in my top loader and the clothes feel a little greasy like the washing powder doesn’t wash out properly.. I have tried a few different wash settings, using powder (And only 1/2 cap) , pods and liquid detergent and adding and extra rinse to the cycle. Also bits of hair don’t seem to rinse out of the wash. At the moment I am feeling like I should try to take this back. Am I doing something wrong or do front loaders just not wash as well?
