"The Candy washing machine is excellent in performance and looks very stylish in the kitchen. Very spacious drum capacity, easy to use, good spin control. Very qiuet when running. I would definately recommend this washer."
"Our washing machine broke on the Sunday of a Bank Holiday weekend, the reviews seemed good and we didn't want to spend a lot as we were in the middle of a kitchen and bathroom refurb. We were able to collect this one on the Bank holiday Monday and a member of staff helped us get it into our car.
I have only used 3 of the wash cycles so far but they all seem to work well. The 30 minute and 1 hour programmes are especially good, I don't think it is any noisier than any other machine."
"Really pleased with this machine. It's quiet and very easy to use. Time will tell but so far so good. We like the extended 5 year parts warranty easily registered on line. The people at Argos are friendly and helpful as usual making the shopping experience a pleasure."
"This washer is great if you are a family of two or three even, but for a family of 5 the cycles are just too long. It's over 3 and half hours for a cotton cycle. The quick function is great however. And the price is great. Pros and cons like everything."
"At first worked fine then starting showing error codes particularly one that said it wasnt emptying properly. This became more and more frequent despite being plumbed in properly. Now it won't empty, spin or complete a wash.
"My Candy washing machine broke down after 9 years. After looking at loads of washing machines, I decided to purchase the Candy 1400 spin and so pleased I did. Machine is even better than the last and delivery & service from Argos was 1st class."

"This washing machine is very good for its price, easy to use and has a good selection of washing cycles, quick and longer ones for cottons etc. I would defiantly have another one of these, my previous hot point lasted me 7 years, but I didn't want to spend a big amount on a washer when I can get the same from this product."

"We chose candy washing machine for the height of the door it's great for people who suffer with back problems. The washer is not as large back to front as a standard washer but it's good if you have not got the space."
"This is the 3rd Candy we have bought in the last 12 months, one for our own house and two washer/dryers for our holiday lets. Simple and clear controls make it easy to operate, excellent performance, quiet, and a handy countdown display too."
"This is a great machine - good selection of functions - I like the 14 minute quick wash - looks small from the outside but large drum inside - I chose this for the size of wash load 7Kg and the spin speed 1400 and wasn't disappointed. Washed a full set of king size bedding (4 pillow cases, quilt cover and fitted sheet) along with 4 hand towels managed it easily. If you are looking for a 'workhorse' machine this is it!!"
"Found this washing machine very economical luv the many different options on it having the quick wash of 30 minutes really cuts down on running costs great for families would highly recommend it to family and friends."
