Originally reviewed by Richard & Jackie Stevenson 28 May 2015

Key Features

  • 7kg washing machine with A+++ energy rating
  • 1,200rpm spin and slim depth design
  • Approx. £41 a year running cost

Price: £299

The John Lewis JLWM1205 is a slim depth machine – it's just 55cm deep, so you'll have no problems fitting it into a tight space. It's cheap, too, but that doesn't come at the cost of performance and you get a three-year guarantee to boot.

A standard, full load will cost you around 18 pence and we reckon it'll cost £41 a year to run based on typical UK usage. It cleans as well as many more expensive machines, and isn't as noisy as some cheap machines we've tested.

Overall, it's a great choice if you don't have much to spend.
