Kagoo Score

Why Has it Scored 89?

reviews indicate that it has outstanding user reviews with an average user rating of 93%, based on 210 reviews. Looking across the entire Candy washing machine range, the average reviews for all Candy 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 Hoover washing machine has running costs of £500 over 10 years, which puts it in the cheapest 10% of all 2,100+ washing machines that we have calculated running costs for.
The DXOA68C3_WH has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Faster than average maximum spin speed
Has a delayed start timer
Louder than average 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.
