The Zanussi Lindo300 ZWF01483WR is a large capacity freestanding washing machine that has a lot to offer. You have a nice variety of features and options that make the machine versatile, and it works well across a range of different laundry jobs. In addition to that, this model offers solid efficiency for its size. It has an estimated energy consumption of 232 kilowatt hours per year and a corresponding running cost of about £35, which isn’t much more than some significantly smaller competing machines.
If you’re a person that regularly needs to do large loads of wash, then this is a washing machine that should meet your needs. It has large drum with a 10kg weight capacity and it has a nice large opening that makes it very easy to load. The size of this machine will be more than enough for almost any family.
With the Lindo300, you get programmes and options that can make it a good machine for all of the washing jobs that you’ll need to undertake. You have fourteen programmes that cover all of the standard wash settings, and then there are special programmes for a quick wash, wool and economy. Beyond that, you also have functions for intensive wash, a delayed start and control over the speed of the spin cycle.
One nice feature of this machine is its ability to weigh the load and make adjustments to the water and drum action to provide optimal efficiency. If you put a half a load in the machine, it automatically makes the adjustments to provide the best performance.
This machine scores well in the ease of use department though there could be some room for improvement with how you set the machine. It has the nice large porthole and wide swinging door to make it easy to load, so there will be no complaints there, but they could improve upon the controls. All of the controls are easy to access on the front panel and you do have an LED display, but every option and setting is controlled by buttons. With this layout, you have to make multiple button presses to get the machine to the settings that you like and if you happen to pass the option that you are looking for, then you have to cycle back through. Taking into account all the other strong selling-points this is really only a minor concern.
As for the cleaning results, this washer delivers optimal cleaning on pretty much all the settings. It gets out heavy soiling with the intense settings and it is gentle enough to wash delicate items without causing damage. As long as you use the right settings for the job, it should always provide excellent results (and for many jobs the quick wash will be more than adequate).
All in all, this is a highly recommended machine at a very reasonable price which will particularly suit families who have lots of washing to do.
