How To Find The Best Washing Machine

Published on December 28 2009 by GuestPoster in Appliances


The washing machine is an appliance that is used regularly and, as such takes a lot of abuse. Therefore, it is important to choose a machine that is up to the work and it is important to do thorough research prior to buying your machine in order to get one that fulfills all your needs and requirements. The same applies to washer dryer combo machines where the range is often greater and can be more overwhelming.

The variety of washing machines on offer in a store can be quite staggering and make choosing difficult. It is also quite easy to be persuaded into buying inappropriate machine. It is important to consider the following factors when looking for a washing machine:

Capacity: The size of suitable drum depends on your washing size and often, therefore, the number of family members. You will be able to wash less frequently with a bigger machine which can result in greater savings.

Machine Effectiveness: This is vital as there is little point in having an appliance that does not wash effective. Doing online research and making a shortlist of appropriate machines is a good way of ensuring that you buy something that suits your requirements.

Machine Efficiency: This is a very important factor to consider when buying a new machine from both a financial and environmental viewpoint. Big monetary and energy savings can be made by taking note of the efficiency rating of the machine. A higher rating can lead to greater savings.

Additional Factors: Many appliances come with add on features such as an incorporated dryer machine, as in the washer dryer combo or a self balancer. Connection to the internet is possible with some of the more costly machines. These machines can be programmed with different wash cycles from downloads from the internet.

The next step, now armed with the features you wish in a washer or mini washer dryer is to do research. The best place to do quick and thorough research is online. Most product sites often have reviews left by customers which may be very beneficial, however bear in mind, that often, reviews are often left by people who are not happy with a product which can leave a biased view. The more that customers have left comments the more likely you will find a balanced overall review. I would recommend writing a shortlist of around half a dozen appliances. More than this on your wishlist will usually lead to confusion when you go to purchase. A list will often help keep you focused on what you need when going to purchase your machine.
