Product information
The Indesit XWA81682XWUK Washing Machine has excellent ratings for both efficiency and performance.

Laundry made easy

With a spacious 8 kg capacity and powerful 1600 rpm spin speed, the Indesit XWA81682XWUK is easily capable of taking on family-sized loads with the minimum of fuss.

With a choice of 16 wash programmes, you can tailor your cleaning cycle to best suit the type of materials you're washing. From gym wear to delicate silks, the XWA81682XWUK has specialist cycles that take care of fabrics while cleaning thoroughly.

Speedy washing

For times when you just want to get clothes clean without the hassle, the intuitive Innex system allows you to start a wash cycle in seconds – simply load the machine and press the button and the cycle will begin, it couldn't be easier.

Advanced technology

Anti-stain technology helps to remove stubborn dirt and grime. By managing the temperature and level of water agitation in the drum, stains are removed thoroughly without damage to the fabric.

A handy anti-odour cycle is also on hand to remove any persistent odours. A new basket movement, accurate temperature control and added rinsing at the end of the cycle help to rid items of smells that you usually struggle to banish.

Delay timer

The XWA81682XWUK has a bright LED indicator display and a delay timer that allows you to start a wash anytime in the next 24 hours.

Energy efficiency

A clever water balance feature makes sure the levels of water and energy being used are always optimal for the load being run and contributes to the machine's excellent energy efficiency rating of A++.

I use only about 3 of the programs, the rest I will proberbly never use, so it works quite ell for me.
Very Long wash cycles, spin speeds are set on all programs, most are to slow for me, A Slower spin speed can be selected, but you cant select a faster spin speed.
After it has done its wash and spin, you can set it to spin again at the fastest spin speed, but this takes another 25 minutes on top of very long wash cycles.
Free extra 5 years warranty is not worth it because you have to use their maintenance people at rip off prices.

The noise level is so quiet,I have to keep checking that it is actually still on.Amazing value for the money spent on the product.
Only one thing I find is the wash cycle's are really long,other than that there are no bad points really.
