Why Has it Scored 74?

Electrolux is a good washing machine brand.
It is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer, better washing machines are available.
This washing machine has running costs of £390 over 10 years, which puts it in the cheapest 2% of all 2,300+ washing machines that we have calculated running costs for.
It has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Quieter than average noise level
Has a child lock
Smaller than average drum capacity
Slower than average maximum spin speed

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.
