Kagoo Score

Why Has it Scored 85?

our review analysis indicates that it has fantastic user reviews with 100% of buyers recommending this washing machine to others. Looking across the entire Haier washing machine range, the average reviews for all Haier washing machines are also excellent.
This washing machine is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer washing machines with better features are available. However it has good reviews so it may still be worth considering.
This Candy washing machine has running costs of £1,000 over 10 years, which puts it in the most expensive 10% of all 2,200+ washing machines that we have calculated running costs for.
The GVS149DC3 has some great features:
Big drum capacity
Has a child lock
Has a delayed start timer

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.
