Don't try the wifi connection. Just don't. You'll be happier that way.
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

The washing machine only arrived today. Getting it hooked up to the plumbing and doing its first wash was as expected - great!But then I noticed that it's supposed to have wifi capacity - and things went downhill. It's really unnecessary! A washing machine has no need to be on the internet and I have no need to control it with a phone. But when the capacity is there, I want to try it - and it's stupidly awkward.You need an app, which apparently only works with Android phones - ok, we have those in the household. So we downloaded the app and the phone still didn't connect with the washing machine. Apparently our home network broadcasts on 5 ghz and the washing machine demands 2.4ghz.The idea of messing with the home network just to accomodate the washing machine is a non-starter - we have phones, tablets, laptops and tvs all happily connecting to the router as it is. I am not risking messing all that up just so the washing machine can watch cat videos on youtube or monitor what I post on Facebook or whatever crazy stuff it wants to do. It will just have to settle for doing the laundry.From other reviews I see that the app is really unreliable even if you get a phone and the Candy to talk to one another in the first place. Honestly, I wish the manufacturer hadn't bothered.

Great machine for a great price
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

We ordered this machine through Amazon as it was the best deal we could find. It arrived in excellent time and the delivery guys were brilliant.The machine itself has been great; we’re a family with 2 small children, 2 dogs, a cyclist and an equestrian... so there is a lot of washing to get through. The large drum is great, it’s bigger than our previous and helps get through the baskets a little quicker! There are plenty of programmes to choose from with changeable temperatures; I haven’t found a need I couldn’t meet yet. The clothes are well wrung out by the time they come out, thanks to the high spin, which helps decrease drying time.I haven’t bothered using the smart technology as I haven’t found a need to personally - so I can’t comment on that front. It’s our first time with a Candy machine and I’ve been impressed so far: a good quality machine for a very reasonable price. Friends of ours have had Candy machines for several years and report no issues, which need feed into our selection. We would happily buy from Candy again.

My laundry has never been so clean!!!
Reviewed on Argos.co.uk

Washer looks great in the kitchen. The simplyfi app is easy to setup, there are a whole host of programmes that are not on the dial. I was a bit dubious of this machine when I started using it, very noisy imho, reminded me of Boeing engines when the machine is spinning, even normal drum rotation for washing is a bit shouty. However... my laundry has never been cleaner & softer! Amazing wash results using the same products I was before. I love it!!!

Great features

Good variety of washing cycles. Only down side the shorter cycles don’t spin the clothes very well and have to use an additional spin.

Black is the colour.
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

Fantastic quality easy to use 70 kilos is a bit of a struggle to push around and even more so when pulling out £299 is the best of the best prices ive ever found everywhere, advertised as 1600 spin is actually 1400 spin and the door hinges are made of plastic, you could quote me happy if they where carbon fibre !!!

A very good value buy.
Reviewed on Argos.co.uk

We have bought about four of these Candy washing machines ,they get VERY hard use and seem to last at least four years or over ,(one lasted nearly 10 years !). In between we have bought a couple of "better makes" which lasted a short time then developed faults . Over the years we have decided that Candy represent very good value and put up with a lot of hard use .
