Servis M6011s Washing Machine Review

Recommended Posts

SERVIS M6011S WASHING MACHINE REVIEW

This washing machine looks surprisingly solid and is heavy. It’s a budget washing machine though and the weight is mostly accounted for by the heavy concrete tub weights. The kick strip at the front base of the washing machine rattles and suffers from vibration on spin on the one I tested.

This washing machine has a pump filter but no pump filter drain hose ( a small rubber tube with an end stop, where you can drain the water into a bowl if it ever breaks down full of water) You can at least regularly check and clean the filter, but those that don’t will have difficulty not flooding the kitchen if they want to remove and clean a blocked filter that has resulted in a washing machine full of water.

WHAT I LIKE ABOUT IT

The Servis M6011S has a nice control display and selector switch, which is simple to use. Its 1100 spin speed is slow by today’s standards but it was perfectly adequate for us all during the 1980s and 1100 is more stable and quieter. The suspension seems solid for the price and the pump is also surprisingly quiet.


WHAT I DISLIKE ABOUT IT

One piece cabinet makes major repairs more difficult but to be honest at this washing machine’s price (less than £200) it’s probably not going to be an issue. That is, as with many other washing machines these days, anything major going wrong results in the washing machine being scrapped as it’s almost as expensive to fix than to replace. Servis have now gone bust anyway!

(RELATED ADVICE: Are washing machines made as well as they used to be? )

SUMMARY

Servis UK have gone bust (again). If you can afford a bit more, you will be far better off with something like a John Lewis washing machine which comes with a 3 year guarantee.
