For the price it’s perfect
I have had this machine for about a year now. I experienced my first issue today where the error code E4 came up and I noticed the lid felt funny. So got t back into place and it was all good. The clothes get very tangled by the end but that’s no issue. I’m really happy with it, easy to clean, has a good filter, nice to do large loads.

Just the trick
Handles all our household throws at it.
Auto sensing is great. Close the lid and let it work out the right cycle.
So happy with this purchase I can totally recommend it

Super Cheap and works well after 1 month frequent use
Kogan 10kg top loader washer - Bought April 2021.
OK we are heavy washing machine users - here's an extended review which will update from time to time. Purchased this item on Thursday with premium freight and it arrived today (Saturday after Easter). Delivery was very smooth - old machine (Speedqueen toploader industrial washer - awn552sn301 - which had a faulty timing unit and the drum was grating inside the machine) was removed as was the new unit packaging.
The unit was quite small for a 10KG washer but looks the part and set up was eas...y (no shipping bolts). The unit has carry handles either side at the front and built in rollers at the back. We checked it was level and locked it in place with boards. A mat/grid is provided for placing on the underside of the unit with slide in guides (this is a bit awkward but no major issue) not really sure it's function else you have a big hole under the unit (maybe to stop lizards/mice entering the unit?). We ran the first wash with no laundry as stipulated in the manual. After that we put in 8 towels (these are those lite Ikea bath towels). At this point please note we have a doggy daycare and the towels are dirtier than normal with grass, mud and fur (also we had an absolute drenching of rain over Easter and our grounds are wet and muddy). 'Normal' setting was was done in 43 mins and we noted that the drum was clean but the towels still retained some grass etc. Essentially the towels were clean enough for our purposes but if you are a super clean freak then I think you might be a little disappointed (there is a 'Heavy Duty' setting that might be useful here too). The most telling element here is the lack of an agitator - which allows for easier loading but less thorough cleaning.

Love my new Kogan washing machine!
I can wash heaps in one go so time and energy efficient. Every thing from sheets towels everyday clothes and delicates. Love the easy to read and good performance of the programs available and the choice of custom settings if I wish. Clothes come out lovely clean and fresh as there is good amount of water to clothing as water level automatically adjusts to weight of clothes. The cycle times are reasonable and in no time ready to hang compared to my 5 year old front loader that packed it in and took forever it seemed to finish a cycle. Plus the top loader is easier on the back when putting in and removing clothing.

I'm upset, stressed & feeling lost here.
I bought mine about 3 months ago, what frustrated me at first is it knotting up and stretching everything, having to sit and untangle everything annoyed me but I dealt with it because I'm not a complainer. But now it keeps stopping with a full drum of water with E1 on the screen. I'm currently handwashing in a bathtub for a family of 8. Kogan not responding

Value for money
Bought this washer on moving out of home for the first time. It was basically the cheapest one I could find at the time that was a top loader (I'm tall). Four months of use and I haven't had any issues with the machine. You can adjust the amount of water used, spin times, etc. which is good. The only problem I had at the start was a leaky hose, however I'm not 100% sure if it was a fault with the hose or with my taps. I fixed it with a $9 replacement hose from Bunnings and it seems to have done the trick. The controls could possibly be a little...clearer and the detergent box/compartment has a bit of a strange design. I use powder detergent and it's impossible to fill it completely because it has holes in the bottom, so some of the powder always runs out onto my clothes. Not a big issue though.

Beware dodgy machine & service
Purchased the Kogan 10kg washing machine on 6th February & I am writing this on the 29th February 2020. I thought it would be great for all washing including my sheets & blankets. From day one I have had nothing but trouble from the noise, vibrations & the strange sounds.
After 30 + emails & numerous trips to the laundromat Kogan said “as a goodwill gesture we will give you a $40 store credit (hahaha) that would have paid for one trip let alone the inconvenience of waiting around for the washing &drying. Please be aware if you purchase this be ready for nothing to be done. Long time loyal buyer previously but wouldn’t spend another cent with KOGAN.

so far very pleased with this machine haven't had it long enough for a report but hoping it keeps on going on . So far I love it and it is a good price.
Purchased in June 2019.
I purchased this washing machine about a month ago and I’m very impressed. To start with it arrived sooner than expected (which is always great) and it was packaged really well. Extremely easy to set up and manoeuvre. Aesthetically it looks as good as most, more expensive brands. It washes really well and has all the functions you would want/need in a washer. The only downside for me is the buttons aren’t easy to decipher without having familiarised yourself with the manual first, which is just a little annoying. Aside from that you definitely can’t beat the value for money especially considering you can purchase additional warranty for peace of mind.
Questions & Answers
I’m having difficulty figuring out the Kogan manual. Can you set The 10 kg Toploader washing machine to spin spin dry only mode?
Hi the manual states
8. If you want to use a customised program on a regular basis, you can program it to the machine's memory for easy access. See the Memory Function section for the machine's memory for easy access. See the Memory Function section for instructions.
But the memory section states
When you run the Normal, Custom or Heavy-Duty program, the machine memorises your settings (except for preset time and water level) for the next time use.
settings (except for preset time and water level) for the next time use.
But after trying several times , it does not remember the settings
Am I doing something wrong or is the manual wrong or missing a step ?
Hi there, has anyone had any long term problems with this machine since these reviews? Does it have an agitator?
I had major issues, & very unsatisfactory returns issues when I first bought the machine. I could not use the machine from day one so I cannot advise really anything on the operation of the machine except it caused me a lot of grief trying to get my money back. If your thinking of buying one I would suggest you look at other options. Yes I know some are a lot more expensive but at least they will give you peace of mind.
