Because this model has been a best-seller for three month in a row, we were curious to know why, so we decided to get a professional opinion. We paid a visit to one of the most important selling outlets (B.Tech) in Abbas Al-Akkad street.
There we talked to Mr. Mohamed Gamal Hassan, sales officer and we asked him what does he generally think of Whitepoint washing machines? “It is a very strong brand that has a good reputation in the Egyptian market. It competes with other strong brands and even brands that are more popular.”
An in-depth look into the White Point Grando Washing Machine
- In General White Point has many models that satisfy most users’ needs.
- All the Whitepoint washing machines are smart washing machines, they work by electronic cards and don’t accept any wrong program settings, for instance the wool wash program won’t exceed 600 spin per minute and the temperature won’t exceed 40 degrees. The washing machine automatically sets-up these setting as soon as users pick this option.
- The machines have multiple programs and you can make changes up to a certain limit in each program, for example you can change the spinning speed and temperature.
- Al-Abd Group is the brand distributor in Egypt, and they are known to provide high quality service and maintenance. This is a strong point for the brand, as the maintenance is very important for users and it’s the first thing they ask about when they decide to buy a product.
- The outer body of the machine is made of stainless steel.
- There is a screen that tells users the time remaining and also tells which option was picked.
- The washing machine comes in silver, black or white which isn’t an option in other washing machine brands.
- It’s imported from Italy and isn’t assembled in Egypt.
- The price is competitive as the machine has been imported in one part.
- This model has an inverter motor, in case of any dysfunction in the motor it can be replaced by itself without having to change the drum. This means that fixing the washing machine won’t be as costly.
About the Motor
- It guarantees the stability of the washing machine while operating.
- It saves electricity and energy.
- Isn’t loud.
- Every spin is useful.
And the last question we asked Mohamed was, does the high price of the washing machine means that the spare parts will be expensive or makes users wait a long time till the spare parts are available?
He explained that the maintenance service centers usually have extra spare parts that are most wanted by users. Which means the wait time isn’t elongated. The spare parts isn’t considered that pricey among users, because they know they are buying good quality product.
