Large capacity (8kg) washing machine with extra- large door – washing duvets is easy. In black, silver, white, this washing machine is a stylish and practical laundry solution.
Large drum sizes allow you to wash more in one go, making life easier and saving you money. You can wash 40 shirts in one wash cycle. That’s why it’s ideal for large families who frequently wash large loads and bulky items. You’ll end up saving even more time and energy. 1
The LCD display keeps you informed by showing the time remaining till the end of the wash as well as the time delay. It also displays the spin speed and temperature selection.
You no longer have to wait hours for your daily wash to be ready, with our Daily Quick programme you can wash a large load of lightly soiled laundry, even as big as 8kg, in 39 min or under. 2
Quick wash programmes allow fast cleaning of smaller loads. Ideal for when you're in a hurry, the Xpress Super Short Programme washes a 2 kg load of lightly soiled laundry in just 14 min. 3
Choose from a variety of innovative programmes to suit different clothing types, ensuring your clothes are impeccably cleaned and cared for.
Specially designed to care for babies and toddlers or for people with sensitive skin, it extends the washing time and applies extra rinsing to avoid allergy problems related to sensitive skin.
This gentle programme moves clothes lightly through the cycle and uses minimal water to avoid shrinkage - perfect for delicate fabrics such as silk and those with "hand wash" label
This Beko appliance is up to 10% more energy efficient than 'A' rated models, saving you money on energy bills.
Choose a programme start time that is convenient for you. Time your wash to start while you’re out and be ready to simply hang out to dry when you get back - saving you time and hassle.
Tailor your laundry cycles to your individual requirements with easy-to-programme variable spin speed and temperature.

The Beko washing machines have a soft drum pattern that is designed to be non abrasive, for better protection of clothes, but creates enough gentle friction to assist in cleaning the laundry.
For easy loading and unloading of larger items of laundry like duvets or bed linen.
Compared to regular washing machines that lose nearly 25% of detergent during washing, Beko’s specially developed Aquafusion Technology reduces the amount of wasted detergent and significantly enhances washing performance. Our Aquafusion Technology is a feature on all Beko washing machines.
Activating the Child Safety Lock prevents the accidental changing of washing programmes by locking the buttons.

30° is the new 40°! Washing at 30° doesn’t mean you have to compromise on performance. The 30° programmes give you great results thanks to the latest technologies developed by Beko and detergent manufacturers. This helps you save money on energy bills, do your bit for the environment and keeps your clothes looking great for longer.
