What to look out for before buying a new washing machine
Washing machine buyers guide
Could you live without your washing machine? A washing machine has become an essential household appliance, but how do you find the right one for you? It really does pay to do your research before you buy. This guide will help you choose the best appliance for you and will give you some tips of things to look out for when looking for a new appliance.
Choosing the right size
Washing machines usually come in a standard height and width, but the size of the drum often varies. See more information on drum sizes below.
Freestanding washing machine
If you want a machine that sits on it’s own a freestanding machine is a great option. You can place a freestanding machine anywhere there is space and a connection.
Integrated washing machine
An integrated washing machine is one that sits under the counter behind a cabinet door. They are a great choice if you want to hide away your washing machine and have something that matches your kitchen or laundry room counters.
A washer dryer is a combination between a washing machine and dryer all in one appliance. This options comes in either freestanding or integrated. They are a great choice if you are looking to save space and don’t have enough space for two appliances. Although, some would argue that having separate appliances might be more efficient than one appliance.
Choosing your drum size
This is one of the smallest drum capacities available. Great if you prefer to wash little and often. It’s the perfect size for a one or two-person household and can hold a single-sized duvet if needed.
This size would probably fit a double duvet in. It is great for a medium-size family and is probably the most popular option for many families.
This drum would fit a king-size duvet in it. If you have a large family or need to wash larger items on a regular basis this size is the best for you.
