How reliable are Zanussi washing machines?

Zanussi is part of the Swedish based Electrolux group where QUALITY still means something.
As you would expect, Zanussi washing machines are not as reliable as some of the more expensive brands, like
Miele or Siemens, but within their price range, they are excellent.  

Our Washing Machine Repair Man says...
Zanussi have impressed a lot over the past few years. Build quality is good.
And mid-price range Zanussi washing machines are fantastic value for money.

As you move up their price range, you are paying for fancy features rather than
better build quality. I personally would not spend that extra money on a Zanussi.
I would go for a more up-market brand -  AEG, Siemens, or even a low-end Miele.

Our Verdict:
The vast majority of people in our customer satisfaction surveys were very happy with their
Zanussi washing machines - and said that they would buy Zanussi again.
For the money, low and mid-range Zanussi washing machines are hard to beat.
But if you can afford a top-end Zanussi - maybe you should be looking at AEG etc.

Our highest recommendation goes to John Lewis
They have a superb selection. Their prices are extremely competitive,
They offer better guarantees than just about anybody else.
And their customer service is excellent.

We also highly recommend Co-Op Electrical Shop.
