Bush Washing Machines.

I would imagine they are pretty cheap and parts may be difficult to get in the future as is often the case for "branded" appliances depending on where they are sourced from. I don't think Bush make washing machines, they just brand them from a cheap source like lots of others do. Even Russell Hobs had one out and they only make kettles and small appliances. I would stick to proper well established brands.

Yes, I would definitely avoid them. It's just people with no interest in washing machines deciding they want to sell them and getting someone who makes them real cheap to stick their name on it. Pretty pointless if you ask me unless you want to by a cheap throwaway appliance and don't mind if it only lasts a few years.

Exactly Dave. Most of the respected names have been hijacked by other companies who drastically reduce quality but keep the name because people respect it.

Hello folks,

Bit of info regarding Bush.

In November 2008, it was announced that Argos (who also own Homebase) has bought the brand names Bush and Alba. All products branded as these 2 names are now Argos ownbrand products.

The current range of Bush machines are manufactured by Turkish company, Vestel, who also make Russell Hobbs branded machines exclusively for Asda and Currys own-branded Logik machines. In my experience, these are very cheap, low performing machines and notoriously unreliable.

Anybody looking for a cheap machine, stick with Beko. Beko are proving themselves to be the brand to watch at the moment, offering so very well made, high performing machines. My best friend, for example, has 2 young children (aged 5 & 3) and her other half has quite a messy job. She bought a 1200rpm mid-range Beko 5 years ago for £210 and it's been flawless ever since. The current excellence range are excellent value, offering 7 or 8kg drums, 1400 and 1600 machines and an excellent choice of cycles for under £260 - such features have previously only been available on high end machines. The build quality of Beko's high end machines is certainly enough to rival Bosch, but up to £100 cheaper.

Obviously, Beko aren't the BEST machines - Miele, AEG, Siemens, ISE/Asko and V-Zug take that biscuit. But for the low - midrange of the market, they're certainly better than anything that Hoover/Candy or Hotpoint/Indesit are churning out.
