I never thought I would get excited about a washing machine site - but what an excellent find. Total appreciation here for the time that must go into this. Suitably armed with your recommendation I marched into John Lewis to find the 1202 has been replaced with the 1203. No change other than a handwash programme and still the same cost.
The guy in the store said they were from a quality maufacturer but he couldn't tell me who - how nice to be able to say - not a problem AEG have a great reputation!
There seems to be a bit of a global shoirtage of these - the JL website proclaims out of stock and the stores are bare.
I was told it is better to order one from the store as they will be getting first pick when they arrive in about a weeks time. Don't know how true that is but I ordered one anyway - and they won't take payment until they have one to send you. Top service and 3 year warranty.
Update to follow when it comes. Many thanks.

The John Lewis brand are more Zanussi than AEG although both are made by Electrolux. AEG still have a good reputation but their washing machines are being made cheaper than ever before and realigned to compete with the mid price market with inevitable build quality consequences.
For £299, with free delivery, a decent machine with John Lewis's name (and reputation at stake) plus a 3 year guarantee I think they are a good buy for anyone buying in that price range. Please let us know what you think of it by starting a new topic.
