This great value built-in Indesit washer dryer has a 6kg drum and 5kg drying capacity. It has been rated B for energy efficiency which is fairly standard for washer dryers as they tend not to be the most energy efficient machines (see our buying guide here for more info). One of the attractions of this machine is the ‘Time for You’ programmes, giving you cycles of 50 mins, 40 mins and 30 mins; quicker washes than the average modern washing machine – handy if you have a busy lifestyle. Another attractive feature of this washer dryer is the sports clothing facility, a programme for grimy sports clothes and another one for training shoes. This combo also features an easy iron option. Dimensions are height 82.0 x width 59.5 x depth 55.0.
The drum spins at 1200 RPM and the machine has 16 different wash programmes. It has sensor drying, adjustable temperature and adjustable spin plus two drying temperatures. It has a delay timer that lasts 9 hours and a general noise level of 58dB. The Indesit IWDE126 retails at around £349 and comes with two years warranty.
As a brief summary, customers said that the lack of digital display was annoying as they had no idea when the cycle would finish and couldn’t plan as easily. Others said the Indesit was a decent little washing machine but there were a few gripes about the dryer leaving clothes creased. This is generally caused by overloading the dryer (more info can be found here) or putting the timer on too high so should be avoidable. The sensor drying feature will turn off the machine when the moisture has gone and your clothes are dry. On the whole customers said the machine was well made and looked good. The general noise level in dB is also good and at a competitive level. Buyers also said that the Indesit IWDE126 was very good value for money, easily plumbed in and set up and easy to use.
