Thoughts on IKEA Washing Machines?

Hi everyone,

Has anyone had any experience with the IKEA washing machines? Specifically model RENLIG FWM5. I know their appliances are produced by Whirlpool, but I can't find any reviews (good or bad) about these online!

It seems like a good deal, and I don't need a lot of features on my washer, as long as it works well!

Thanks, looking forward to your responses.

Re: Thoughts on IKEA Washing Machines? (Dishwashers)

Hi there! We had the low end cheapest dishwasher for about a week. Just after we installed it, we found the top of the line panel-ready one for only $99 because it was dented on the corner (covered by the panel anyway). It was a pretty decent dishwasher (had it for about a year before we moved out of our home) and much quieter.

One thing to consider is bringing a sample of your dishes and bowls to the store to see how well they'll stack in the racks. The rack layout is my one place where I wish they'd done a little more widgeting. The racks are the same in all models, btw - or at least they were.

Anyway, overall we were pleased with the dishwasher, especially at the price we paid!

Re: Thoughts on IKEA Washing Machines?

Thanks Susan, but I'm referring to the clothes washing machines, not dishwashers.

They might only be available in certain countries (I recently moved to Germany), hence the lack on info online..

Re: Thoughts on IKEA Washing Machines?

Ah...sorry! RENLIG is the same name given to the dishwashing line here in the US - probably means clean in Swedish. We don't (yet?) have clothes washers or dryers here.

Hi dingusm!

Just wondered if you went for the FWM5, and if so what you think of it. We're in the same situation, can't find any reviews or tests on this machine.
