Washing machine flexible programming similar to our current one

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts


We currently have a 17 year old Zanussi FJD1466W. We like it because every aspect of the programme can be overridden. By this I mean we can choose fabric, temperature, spin speed, wash choice (e.g. pre wash/outdoor sport/quick) and option (super rinse or AA 40). I have started to look for a replacement in case the machine dies but whatever key word I use for a search fails to identify a machine which has this facility. We do not want everything pre-programmed so you cannot override whichever aspect suits - we can select ANY combination of the five choices. Can anyone suggest anything please. We need a 9kg machine with spin speed 1400. Thanks in advance.

Hello Arnie. Sorry I missed this. It's quite rare these days for washing machines to have many manual overrides. The more expensive washing machines (such as Miele) are the ones most likely to have manual overrides for temperatures, spin speeds etc. The best thing I can recommend is becoming a Which? member to check out all the latest washing machine reviews and recommendations Why subscribe to Which?
