Is Beko a good brand for washing machines?

Yes! Firstly because Beko washing machines are fairly water and energy-efficient, with most models featuring a minimum four-star energy and water rating. They’re also manufactured in Europe which is preferable to appliances made in developing countries where labour laws and manufacturing standards vary.

Secondly, Beko washing machines allow households to customise their wash cycle with nifty features like Autodose, express programs, tailored settings for up to 24 types of stains, drum light, and reload which allows for the odd sock to be added in mid-wash. It’s the little things that count!

There are several key aspects to consider when buying a new washing machine, including its capacity, noise level, and safety features. It’s also important to note the type of water connection the machine has. At the time of writing, Beko washing machines range in capacities from 7.5kg to 10kg, all of which have a cold-only water inlet.
