Why Has it Scored 75?

purchasers report that it has good user reviews with an average user rating of 75%, based on 47 reviews. 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 Essentials washing machine has running costs of £1,000 over 10 years, which puts it in the most expensive 13% of all 2,200+ washing machines that we have calculated running costs for.
The C812WM17 has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Faster than average cycle time
Lightning quick quick program cycle time
Wash up to 40 shirts in one go with a large 8 kg capacity
Reduces drying time with a 1200 rpm spin speed
A++ rated to help save you money on your energy bills
Slower than average maximum spin speed
Loud noise level

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.
