Rated 4 out of 5 by Heathie Pleasantly Surprised
After an untimely surprise of the old washing machine giving up the ghost just days before going away for a week, a new machine had to wait until my return to be found, ordered and delivered.
After a bit of scouting around on the internet, a few suggestions from Homebase appeared. Great option since nectar points were also on offer, so found this Indesit model. Not only was it a spec I couldn't find cheaper elsewhere, (including another internet based white goods retailer who advertise heavily on tv), but there was already a price reduction in place and a Homebase offer of 20% off at the time. On top of this, delivery was only £3.95, so a good price overall.
However, the updates on delivery I then received from Indesit impressed me - text message confirmations of the order, then delivery details were clear and a useful reminder, delivery went ahead as scheduled and really impressed with the machine. Easy to install, instructions pretty clear (restraining bolts rather than a bar, as I'm used to on the past) a specially defined programme to give it a clean before getting started and then it dealt admirably with the backlog of washing. And it turned out to be a 1600 rpm spin model too. The quick wash 'single button press' option is great for standard washes, whilst more specialist cycles are selected using the dial as to your requirements. All in all, very happy - missing a couple of features I've had before, but really can't complain (other than about the call offering extended warranty of already turned down at the checkout process- but they were polite enough). Not registered the free 10 yr parts warranty yet, but will do so soon.
