We were gifted this washing machine in exchange for coverage. My daughter has FPIES. This means that we do a LOT of washing in our home. It is not unusual, on a bad night, to get through 3-4 sets of her bedding, and sometimes ours too. I don’t begrudge this, of course, but I can’t stand having piles of washing sitting around waiting to be done. I love to get the machine loaded in the night when she is ill and then turn it on first thing in the morning. Today I want to talk to you about my new washing machine, the Beko WTG941B1, which comes in black and white. As you can see I have the black model.
The first thing that I love about this machine is that it has a 28 minute cycle for a full 9kg load. Now this is incredible, and even faster than my previous washing machine. Also, if I want to do a smaller load I can do a 2kg load in just 14 minutes. This is ideal for time saving as I am often rushing to get all the chores done while Daisy is at nursery on a Tuesday morning. This gives me the time that I need to complete several loads of washing, put away the clean washing and do ironing too – while juggling blog work of course!
Now as I said the Beko WTG941B1 holds 9kg of washing. I don’t usually fill my washing machine to the brim, as I worry about it being unbalanced. However, this is all of the washing that I did in just one 28 minute cycle:
You can see my toaster there for scale…! Now that is a LOT of washing. An entire week of my husband’s dark washing. And a few items from swimming too. I was really surprised at just how much can fit in the machine and how little noise it made while washing everything too!
The Beko WTG941B1 has a vast array of different cycles, as you can see above. Personally for us we have loved the shirts feature, which is new compared to our previous machine. This is designed to make shirts less creased and my husband has remarked that the ironing has been easier since using this cycle. I’m not sure if this is just psychological though?! The shirts definitely seem less creased when they leave the machine.
I also love that there is a drum clean cycle, activate by holding the relevant button for 3+ seconds. This cleans the drum, at 70C, to ensure that your machine is hygienic. I have run this a couple of time after we have washed clothes and bedding filled with vomit. The peace of mind that this gives me is just fantastic.
You can see a countdown of how long there is left on the wash, and what part of the cycle the machine is on. Also, you can see what temperature and RPM the machine is on. This particularly cycle was on 1400RPM and it barely made a noise – particularly not compared to our old 3 year old machine. I was really surprised at just how much quieter it was.
There is a child lock feature on the Beko WTG941B1. This is activated by holding down the button until a 3 second countdown timer begins. Continuing pressing it down and then it will say C ON. Childlock is then activated. The child lock feature means that little ones cannot change any aspect of the cycle while the machine is on. This is really handy as Daisy is currently fascinated by the washing machine. Unfortunately she doesn’t want to help actually empty it or fill it up!
Daisy still enjoys pressing the buttons, even if nothing is happening!
There is a hand wash feature for delicate items, such as Daisy’s soft toys, and her favourite hand-wash only Smurf didn’t receive any damage when he went for a spin!
The Beko WTG941B1 has a large porthole door. This really is larger than our previous machine but it doesn’t look out of place in our kitchen. Also, the machine automatically reduces the water level for half or smaller loads – which is just fantastic!
It is really easy to use the washing machine drawer to fill it up with fabric softener and washing powder. I personally don’t scrimp on washing products, as I only want to have to wash items once. This hasn’t changed since we switched to this machine.
So far we haven’t had any problems at all with the Beko WTG941B1. We had it installed, and delivered to our 3rd floor flat. This was done with ease and the installation time took just minutes, including the time to remove our old washing machine from the space and disconnect it.
Because of the 28 minute cycle I’m able to complete my washing in less time and in less loads thanks to the 9kg capacity. This helps me to save money on energy bills and best of all spend less TIME on boring chores.
So far our first impressions are great. I would have loved to see a timer on this machine, as my old one had one, but then again I did select this particular model so clearly a timer isn’t as important as I think it is! We’ve not had any issues with the machine, our clothes are coming out clean and the child lock feature works really well.
You can find my particular machine here on the Beko website.
