Why Has it Scored 76?

multiple reviews mentioned that it has good expert reviews and great user reviews with 90% of buyers recommending this washing machine to others.
At over a year old this washing machine is slightly out of date, and newer washing machines with more up to date technology are available.
This washing machine has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Energy Star certified
Has a Rinse Plus function
Get it all done in less time
Think you can t do laundry on the go think again
Fast forward your wash
Deep clean with steam
For small loads<br>that can t wait
Take control in style

What is the Kagoo Score?

We calculate the Kagoo Score for each washing machine by looking at its reviews, features, popularity, age, value for money and running costs.

The Kagoo Score is an easy way to understand whether the washing machine is recommended.

The Kagoo Scores are constantly being updated. As newer, higher spec washing machines come to market, the older washing machines will gradually have their Kagoo Score reduced.
