Washing Machines Buying Guide
Our buying guide will explain which type of washing machine would suit you most, how much you can expect to pay for one, and which features are worth looking out for.
Always had Simpson and this is the worst
I bought this machine a week ago. I have always had Simpson washing machines and decided to choose Simpson again because I had been so happy with them.
This one is so loud even though we have followed instructions to ensure it is balanced. I am yet to finish a cycle as I have had to turn it off due to the noise.
Worst washing machine I have ever purchased
Very disappointed. First wash and error appeared. Also could not get lid open. Washing had to sit in water for 4 days, so you can imagine the stench when Electrolux finally sent a serviceman. He organised for machine to be sent back and I asked for a full refund of purchase. No compensation for mouldy, smelly washing!
Purchased in September 2019.
Highly recommended this company products

I think this is a great machine, its the old style stainless steel barrel with lint collector which is a must no fluff on your clothes, I wash my work clothes with my Son's school clothes with no issues. It has different wash cycles so you can do a quick load or heavy duty clean load. Great value for money plus these are sturdy machines and you can never go wrong with a Simpson Washing Machine.

Saving time and money and cleans like a gem.
I brought my 9kg Simpson Washing machine six months ago. Its large enough to take blankets and allows me to do big loads at same run time as smaller models.
Simpson let down
Less than 1 year old water is not filling it is pouring out the back not happy Jan water everywhere thanks Simpson so disappointed never again what's going on with it
Purchased in September 2018 for $900.00.
End of the line for me with Simpson
This 9kg top loading Simpson washing machine is a real disappointment. Very noisy, each load takes a ridiculously long time to complete, the auto function on water level doesn't work accurately enough to rely on (I.e. I put on a load of towels which should have been a large load and it did it on a low load / I put on a load of clothes which should have been a medium load and it did it on a large load) and the control panel refuses to let me make the selections I want to make. I have been buying Simpson for decades but no more.
Purchased in April 2019 for $880.00.
Had this machine delivered. First wash it had a terrible loud clunking sound.i thought it was unbalanced so moved my very small load around. It did it again. So I took all the clothes out. It still did it. I bought through Appliances online. They were wonderful. They arranged a replacement for the next business day. It arrived, was installed by them and when I did my first wash...same thing!! I rang them again and have arranged for another replacement. This time a Fisher and Paykel. We had Simpson years ago and it lasted many years. We liked th...e dial so thought we would try again. There must be an issue with this model. I won’t use Simpson again. Can’t complain about service from Appliances online. If I had bought from a store they would have made us go down the technician road.
Worse machine EVER!
This machine is the worse machine I have ever own. It sooo loud when washing. Have to wash clothes 2 times to even get them half cleaned. The lint left all over the clothes. Chucks of lint is left all over the clothes. (Yes the filter gets cleaned after every wash) always get a e40 error. On spin cycle the clothes still come out with heaps of water in them. All this started at the start but didn’t think much of it, the machine is now 7mths old and that last 2mths it’s gotten worse. Requesting a full refund on this machine. Do not buy
Great value. Great machine.
I’ve had this machine for 24 hours. It is awesome. Quiet, great wash results. Simple and solid. Instructions are easy. Great bedding cycle. A lot of choice for every type of article. Very pleased with this washer.
Extremely disappointed in this washing machine.
I have had this washing machine for 6 months now and it will be my last Simpson product after using Simpson washing machines for many years. This machine's programs are NOT user friendly. If I try to balance a spin load by pausing the machine the timer goes back 16 minutes even if there is only a few minutes spin time left on the cycle. There is no way to adjust a cycle without returning to the beginning again which is most annoying. The machine is extremely noisy during the spin cycles and the bowl wobbles about alarmingly. The cycles are far too long and the short cycle only does a spray rinse. I am now looking at replacing this nightmare of a machine after only 6 months.
This machine is rubbish
Within 5 months of purchasing this machine the power board went so had that replaced. I then started receiving error messages so had to turn machine off then back on. 4 weeks later the machine started making awful noises so rung technician again. He replaced the more parts resulting in the machine stopping and me having to replace. This took a week and a half for the paper work to come through allowing me a store credit. Service and machine is CRAP.
Horrible Software Design. Water Hammer
After the start button is pushed, the machine does a cycle of water squirts in rapid succession ( 10 cycles on some wash settings ). If your house suffers from water hammer, DONT BUY THIS MACHINE !!!!!
Loud clanky machine - can wash
Find this machine very loud and makes lots of noises throughout the cycle. I would not have bought this machine if I had known how loud it is. Also, seems to be extra wear on pipes and hot water system due to continual turning on and off of hot and cold water, when mixing powder at beginning of cycle. Like another review I have noticed the loud grinding of gears. Loudest washing machine I have ever owned. Last two machines were by Simpson and I liked them, they were much quieter. Very unhappy with this Simpson machine and wish I did not spend ...the money on it, I feel it was a waste. I would have bought a different machine. It washes well but there is no way I can sleep whilst using this machine, even with the laundry door shut. Disappointed.
Purchased in November 2019 for $677.00.

Miss our EZISET 950 !! SWT9043 is a useless piece of...
Excited to do our first wash in our new machine.. the excitement didn't last long. Disappointment rapidly followed as I realised I'd need to wring all my clothes out by hand! As with others on here, the machine just wouldn't spin. Got to E20 and that was it! We did everything required in the instruction booklet. Have now phoned the shop we purchased it from, they will exchange it, no questions asked.. funny that. Probably won't purchase a Simpson again.
Can't even finish first wash!
I am in the same boat as Haylz from Dec 27 2018. Purchased Simpson again as one it replaced was still going after 30 years - no joke and still beautiful wash but circuits not always connecting so decided time to renew. Really wish I had kept it until sure about this piece of rubbish! Delivered on 10th and tried first load today but stops at spin and E20 error message. No way is the hose blocked!! Am contacting Appliances to arrange for a different brand!! Meantime I have to take washing to laundrette which have never done before!!! Sooo upset as had to save hard for this.
Bought Simpson since our last one never missed a beat for 10 years. The SWT9043 is brand new and hasn't even done one load. Will not spin and constantly gives the E20 error message. Followed all fixes online and in the user manual to no avail. Pretty sad state of affairs when it cannot handle a small load of normal clothes (not towels or sheets yet!). And yes we have checked all hoses, followed all instructions and tried turning it off an on again. It's a complete dud and will be going straight back to The Good Guys this afternoon and getting a different brand. Very disappointing Simpson.

It's a clunker but cleans brilliantly!
I don't know what everyone is complaining about!
This machine isn't a "top of the range" washing machine, but it has enough basic settings to cover all my washing needs including a fast 20minute wash, and a gentle cycle. The filter is easy to clean. I especially like the "auto water level setting" - I just drop the clothes in (as suggested by the manufacturer) and the machine decides how much water is needed. I also like the "deep" rinse option for towels; they come out soft, clean, and fluffy without using a softener. I recently washed a ...double bed cotton blanket without any trouble, and it came out clean. I have not experienced any lint over the clothes problems. The only down side is it is a bit noisy, but I've got used to its clunking and clicking. I don't wash clothes in the middle of the night anyway. I think it is value for the money I paid. I purchased it from Spartan Electical in Adelaide.
Poor quality, poor design and pore warrantee
Ok Like many here we purchased this machine on Simpsons old reliable reputation. We purchased a slightly dinted but NEW (Never used r refurbished) machine from 2nds world.
At 7.5 months the machine just stopped working. the tech found the main board was fine but the Motor system packed it in. (This is the coreless super reliable motor system they bragged about in the marketing blurb).
To add insult to injury the machine fails to a Locked position. When something goes wrong the lid is locked and cannot be opened period! So a very busy wife ha...
Don't be fooled by the star rating.
This machine does not meet our expectations as a replacement for our 15 Y O Whirlpool. It only took a couple of wash cycles to realise I've been had. The machine is not time efficient, the programmes are longer, allow an extra 10 to 15 mins per wash cycle. The gearbox noise was a concern so we had a technician come and inspect it only to be told, yes they are noisy nothing to worry about," hopefully it will last the warranty period!" If your gearbox sounds like it's continuously grinding and can hear it upstairs in a two story dwelling, don't w...orry its OK!!!!!!! Washing loads are always on Auto as when I have used levels it spins unbalanced, it is apparently goes on weight, find this hard to understand as most times I have a full load and only fills up half with water. The lint filter has to be constantly emptied & fail to see how a small gauze bag, attached on 2 clips will last as it is obviously flimsy. The different cycles ie 45 min cycle is for a few small pieces of clothing. Other cycles are available but cannot be used as I only use cold water; something else we were unaware on purchasing this machine.
