Many people bought A-rated washing machines in 2012, but if you chose the A+++ WMX86231W EcoSmart washing machine it could save you around £19 every year, that's enough to buy 88 washes worth of washing powder every year, or enough energy to give you the first 156 washes for free. 1
Large drum sizes allow you to wash more in one go, making life easier and saving you money. You can wash 40 shirts in one wash cycle. That’s why it’s ideal for large families who frequently wash large loads and bulky items. You’ll end up saving even more time and energy. 2
The high spin speed helps save time on the line or energy use in the tumble dryer by removing more water.
The Pro-Smart Inverter Motor provides a more energy efficient and quieter operation and comes with a 10 year warranty for extra peace of mind.
This Beko appliance is up to 30% more energy efficient than 'A' rated models, saving you moneyon energy bills.
The stylish digital display keeps you informed by showing the time remaining till the end of the wash as well as the time delay. Moreover, the electronic knob with indicator lights for each programme makes programming the wash that much easier.
You no longer have to wait hours for your daily wash to be ready, with our Daily Quick programme you can wash a large load of lightly soiled laundry, even as big as 8kg, in 39 min or under. 3
Quick wash programmes allow fast cleaning of smaller loads. Ideal for when you're in a hurry, the Xpress Super Short Programme washes a 2 kg load of lightly soiled laundry in just 14 min. 4
This Beko appliance automatically reduces the water level for half or small loads, saving you money on utility bills.
The Beko washing machines have a soft drum pattern that is designed to be non abrasive, for better protection of clothes, but creates enough gentle friction to assist in cleaning the laundry.
Compared to regular washing machines that lose nearly 25% of detergent during washing, Beko’s specially developed Aquafusion Technology reduces the amount of wasted detergent and significantly enhances washing performance. Our Aquafusion Technology is a feature on all Beko washing machines.
Activating the Child Safety Lock prevents the accidental changing of washing programmes by locking the buttons.
30° is the new 40°! Washing at 30° doesn’t mean you have to compromise on performance. The 30° programmes give you great results thanks to the latest technologies developed by Beko and detergent manufacturers. This helps you save money on energy bills, do your bit for the environment and keeps your clothes looking great for longer.
