Washing machines are essential appliances that can help make your daily chores easier. But shopping for the right one can be a daunting task as it should have the capacity to meet all your household needs.
With the advent of enticing “innovations” and scattered complex jargon within the market, how do you find the perfect washing machine that lasts long?
Front Loader or Top Loader?
Deciding whether to choose a front-loading washing machine or a top-loading washing machine is the first step in narrowing down your choice. More and more users are opting for a front-loading washing machine with its energy-conserving and garment-preserving features.
Once you’ve decided on that, it’s crucial to take the following factors into consideration:
It’s important for you to find out how much you wash in a typical load. Most of us only fill our washing machines about 3.5kg on average so you don’t really need to have a unit with a 12kg capacity unless you have a big household.
If you prefer a front loader but not into lengthy cycle times, look for a unit with a “fast wash” cycle feature. This could also make your drying time shorter—allowing you to finish your load faster.
When shopping for a washing machine, you may want to ask yourself these questions:
- How much room do you have?
- Where will the machine go?
- How much space will you need to conveniently open the machine door?
- Is there easy access to electricity or water?
- Is there a hot water inlet should your washing machine need one?
If you have children in your home, it’s crucial that your appliances have child-lock functions. This could be on the door, which prevents it from opening mid-cycle, or a program that can’t be changed when a cycle starts.
