Which washing machine is the best and how do you choose one that fits your needs? Is price and quality always hanging together? And what do all the technical concepts really mean? These are just some of the questions we will answer below.
Before investing in a new washing machine, we recommend that you make an assessment of your own needs; What features do you need, how often do you wash, and how much laundry do you need for your new machine to take? When you have this clean, you are ready to start looking at the supply. Here we give you 4 tips that you can take into consideration.
Find a washing machine that fits into your home
Unless your new washing machine is free-standing, be sure to look for a washing machine with the right dimensions. If your washing machine is front operated – that is to say, under a table or similar – it is also important that there is plenty of room for the washing machine door to open and that you can stand in front and empty / fill in at the same time. On the other hand, if you lack floor space and there is room above the machine, you can choose a top-served washing machine where the clothes are put in and taken out from above.
Capacity and speed
A typical washing machine has a capacity of between 5 and 11 kilos, and for most households, it will be ample with a capacity of 7 kilos, but of course this depends on the size of your household and how often you wash your clothes. A family of children will usually be looking for one of the larger models, where a family of two should easily be able to cope with one of the smaller models.
When talking about the speed of a washing machine, you mean the speed at which the washing machine rotates. At higher speeds, the machine washes the clothes faster and also dries it slightly in the process. However, be sure to always look at the clothing brands before choosing speed, as the high speeds may in some cases damage your clothing.
Efficiency and environmental friendliness
It is important to find a washing machine that does not use unnecessarily much electricity and water – in this way you save both the environment and your own money in the long run. All washing machines put on the market today have the A + energy label, but you will still be able to meet older models with a lower mark.
The more features you want, the more expensive your washing machine will almost always be. The vast majority of washing machines have a function that allows you to change the program depending on which clothes you wash, but it is very different how these programs are arranged. Other features, such as a timer that exposes when the sink is started, will usually have to pay a little more to get included.
