Have had this machine for about 5 years and it’s still running perfectly. Would love if you could add items after you turn it on but unfortunately you can’t. Would also love a shorter quick wash. The shortest wash you can get on cotton items is 55 minutes.
Excellent quality, great price.
Recently purchased my 2nd Simpson front loader. My 1st front loader lasted for around 10 years. We are extremely happy with the quality, functionality & cost of this appliance would highly recommend to anyone.

had the 8kg washer for month best thing i could ask for had an LG and that was crap handels all my washing two shirts two shorts and two towels and it very good thanks hommer simpson
It has been an amazing experience using my new washing machine and to actually have our clothes come out nice and fresh no matter what product we use for it. It is a nice and easy set and is easy to use. There is a big range of cycles to choose from and even the cleaning process is really nice and easy.Couldn't have been happier with it .
Exelent washing for a Simpson brand
We got this about two years ago as our 7 year old washer packed in sadly as it was great but the Simpson brand 8kg washer dose a great job on all our cloths and at the time we picked it up for a great price on sale. The only negative we found is it sometimes wobbals/moves about the floor
Considering we'd looked at much pricier washing machines, I'm glad we landed on this one.
The 30 minute wash is perfect for most clothes, and in fact what we do most of our washing on.
The other programs are also handy and given the size we can fit a King size doona if needed.
It try's tried to run away! Not a good buy
We bought this a year and a bit ago and for a while now it keeps trying to slide its way outside! It's moved at least 1 and a half meters from its sitting place. It dose do a great washing job but it's very un safe moving around. We're planning on drilling some kind of catch on the floor to stop the slide
Simpson SWF12843 Fantastic Washing Machine
Set it for 30 mins and it does it in about 32 mins. I suspect the machine takes 2 mins to warm up and away she goes.
When finished it does beep but if you read the manual all you do is press the "P" and the Temp button at the same time until you hear a fast beep and that means the beeping sound is disabled.
Washes clothes well. Only came today but managed to do 5 full washes as our last washing machine the
BOSCH piece of junk started to pack up just past the warranty period and on Thursday it finally gave up the ghost.
Paid $546 from H...arvey Norman in Perth WA. Free delivery. $20 to install and $20 to take the old one away. Paid for the 4 extended warranty so have 2 years from Simpson then the extra 4 yeas from HN. The unit is far quieter than the bosch we had.

Very user friendly, does the job it says it will, haven't had any issues with it since purchase. Was a great price at JB Hi-fi for the quality and size of the washing machine, loads of functions, not too noisey. Can't really thinking of anything bad about it. Very happy, would recommend
Purchased this washing machine last year. Great machine and washes really well. Unfortunately it broke down 13 months after purchase. Was on the spinning cycle and it made a terrible noise and black smoke was coming out of the machine.
Just got a replacement machine under warranty. Hopefully this one will last as they are a great washing machine. Plenty of cycles to choose from and it is quiet whilst in use.
Seal failed on the front door, apparently due to negligence. Cost of replacement is over 200. The machine is 6 months old. Okay, I get that seals arent a warranty item, but after 6 months of use, thats not fair wear and tear.
Never again, will i purchase another item that belongs to Electrolux especially after this email reply
"We are pleased the technician has replaced the seal.
We can appreciate your disappointment but appliance damaged due to accident is not covered under warranty. "
Good, but need an iron at home
The machine is really good, water efficient but once you wash your cotton clothes that definitely will need an iron. Not so loud, if the door is shut in the laundry room you will barely hear the noise. One of the feature that I love is the prewash function, which allows soaking the clothes before washing, saving the hassle of trying to remember.
I bought this machine 14 months ago and am so impressed with it. Its big enought for the king doona and has fast wash option for school uniforms. I have young kids and stains are everyday life well not anymore they arent. I love that i can spray and wash no checking required because it always comes out. Gentle wash works for my daughters dance clothes and its water and energy efficiency are great
Fast and reliable
My wife loves it. She does the washing in the mornings. It has a number of settings and cycles. Whether cold or hot. It performs a good fast wash and still does a great job on getting the clothes nice and clean. Has a good energy rating of 4 stars too.
Good machine never had any issues, colors remain fresh and works on many cycles
Economy cycle saves water and time
Fast wash is really good too
Overall good buy
No issues so far
It can be a little noisy though
But still not too bad
Price is reasonable as well
Makes washing a joy
Cleans my clothes perfectly and is gentle on my clothes. It’s not loud it’s nice and quiet. Looks fantastic in my laundry and it’s perfect size. Family of 6 and washes like a dream. The settings are very good and easy to use. Clothes come out smelling and feeling clean.
I call it Marge Simpson!
very happy with this machine, my first front loader. Don't like dropping clothes on the floor all the time but I'm sure a washing machine drawer will be a bit of help to raise the height. It does a beautiful wash, and I like that I can choose different times, with a quick wash taking only 20 minutes. Make sure you clean the filter regularly & this one will go for years. Very happy.
Have had previous model and have just upgraded to same brand
It is a great machine- has a quick cycle selection which is perfect for me as I am always wanting it to go through quickly with my work clothes! With longer cycles for clothes that need it on occasion but otherwise I like to stick to quick cycle and I can be out the door around an hour after putting my clothes in
A manufacturing fault blamed on customer. I didn't build the washing machine.
After a service issue was raised by the store I purchased my Simpson washing machine from, I received a call from there service department promptly.
I had mentioned to the technician that the screw holding the door to the hinge has broken in half and is lodged in the chamber. The technician said that I would incur a call out fee of $160 + any additional charges for parts and time. How this fault isn't covered by the manufacturers warranty baffles me. This fault has occurred during the 2 year warranty. The technician said it could be my fault...
This is the worst!
I don't usually write reviews but this item is so bad I feel the need to warn others about what this beast will do to their lives.
Our old machine was noisy which is the reason we decided to purchase something new.
This new machine sounds like an aeroplane taking off in our laundry. The whole room rattles and the dogs go crazy, sending the household into a frenzy.
When it finishes the cycle the beeps go off like when leaving the fridge door opened... intermittently... and they don't stop... until you surrender and stop what you're doing ...
Questions & Answers
The door locks then unlocks then relocks , we need to turn the machine off then back on and open the door immediately otherwise it relived , the door has also become hard to open any thoughts as to the issue and how to fix it please
Love our new washing machine, but find a couple of times it seems to stick at 4 minutes until end of wash stays on it for quite some time not spinning. Is there reason for this?
