I was attending a trade meeting and saw a presentation by the sales director at Gorenje UK. I’m often asked about Gorenje washing machines and I must admit I hadn’t known much about them before this presentation. The first thing I learnt was how to pronounce the name properly, which is always nice to know. The j is pronounced as a y, and the e more like an A, so it’s “Gorenya”.
Although Gorenje are relatively new in the UK they are a very well established company selling washing machines and other products in 70 countries. From what I can see Gorenje UK make decent quality washing machines with a 5 year parts and labour guarantee. I also like the fact that they are one of the few companies that work closely with independent repairers and local independent retailers, which should help local repairers to be able to fix them.
