This Indesit washing machine is great at getting synthetics clean and at spinning laundry, and our tests found it to be energy-efficient, too. However, it's only average at cleaning cottons and rinsing.

This is a fairly basic but affordable washing machine. It didn’t do badly in our tests when washing clothes, but we have seen a lot of better washers.

This washing machine isn't anything special. Washing cottons, rinsing and ease of use are all no better than average. While there isn't much wrong with it, you'll be able to find yourself a better model than this Indesit.

This integrated washing machine is OK, especially for the price. But it’s let down by high running costs and a slow cottons wash.

This Indesit is OK at cleaning cottons and synthetics, but the most impressive features are the really effective spin and the low running costs.

Independent washing machine tests 

We don't think anyone should end up shelling out their hard-earned cash for a washing machine that breaks down prematurely or is anything less than fantastic at washing clothes. 

That’s why we test how well each washing machine copes with tough stains, such as blood, chocolate, coffee, grass and red wine. We also carry out 50 separate ease-of-use assessments so that when you get your washing machine home, you can be confident it really will be easy to use.

Every washing machine that we test – including Indesit models – get tested for a month at the Which? test lab

Indesit washing machine reviews you can rely on 

Italian brand Indesit is very popular in the UK, and most of its machines cost less than £300, making it one of the most affordable on the market. 

Every Indesit washing machine we test spends at least a month being assessed in the Which? test lab – that's the Which? difference. Only then do we have enough information to bring you our independent washing machine reviews.  

But we don’t stop there. For a washing machine to be awarded Best Buy status, it has to be one of the highest scoring in our tests and come from a reliable washing machine brand. We survey thousands of washing machine owners each year to find out about the niggles and problems that their machines have caused them. 

Brands with a poor reliability record can only be awarded Best Buys when their machines do well enough in our tests and they provide a free five-year parts and labour guarantee. 

You can see how the major brands stack up in our guide to the best washing machine brands.
