1. Features: Most important purchase criteria for a washing machine

1.1 Types

There are two types of washing machines, i.e. front loader and top loader. Which of the two you must choose that depends on your living situation. For example, do you have a large family, or do you live alone? Then your needs can differ considerably.
Let’s find out which one is best suited for you.

Front Loaders

A front loader machine is the most common type in the Netherlands, with its opening located at the front. A front loader is undoubtedly expensive than a top loader. However, it is more efficient in giving results and saving energy. The drum size range for a front loader usually remains from 5 kilos to 12 kilos. In addition, an advantage of the front-loading washing machine is that you can also place a dryer on it to save space.

Top Loaders

In a top loader, you load the laundry from above. It is best suited for small spaces because they are just 40 centimetres wide. Moreover, since they open from the top, you can perfectly place them in a corner with any items in front of or next to it. It is usually preferred by people who cannot bend down for laundry cleaning.

1.2 Payload

Payload or the filling capacity of a washing machine is an essential factor to take into account. It means the maximum amount of laundry that can be cleaned in one wash. An average drum capacity is about 8 kg. However, modern washing machines can also have a capacity of 10 or 12 kilos. In contrast, cheaper models come with a capacity of 5 to 6 kilos.

The drum size entirely depends on the number of family members, and it is not that bigger is always better. The key is to fill the drum optimally to save on the purchase price, water and energy costs.

To determine the correct drum capacity, you can adhere to the below table:

1.3 RPM (Rounds Per Minute)

The speed of the washing machine means the pace at which the drum rotates, and it determines how wet or dry your laundry is after a wash. A good washing machine runs at high speed to get the laundry as dry as possible. This property relates to the centrifugation process.
The drum spin very quickly at a high number of revolutions to make the clothes drier. You might not even need a dryer after this. After this, the natural drying process will take an hour or so.

The best washing machine has a speed of 1400 rpm or 1600 rpm. At 1600 rpm, the residual moisture percentage remains only 44%, whereas at 1400 rpm, it is 50%, and at 1200 rpm, it is 52%. The high-end washing machines also let you set the speed yourself.

Note: Never turn your laundry too often on the highest setting as it costs extra energy and causes your clothes to wear out faster.

1.4 Energy

  • Label

Check the energy label to determine the energy efficiency of your washing machine. The energy label runs from class A to G. Class A means the machine is most efficient and less annual energy cost. A class A washing machine can save up to 700 euros in energy consumption and save the environment. The purchase price of an energy-efficient washing machine will certainly be higher, but also you will earn this difference back in the following years. In addition, the water consumption per year is also indicated on the energy label. 

  • Consumption

There is a formula to gain insight into the energy costs of your washing machine in euros per year - €0.23 × average consumption (stated on the label) in kWh per year. You can also determine the energy consumption based on the number of washes, and the formula is €0.23 × number of kWh per wash × number of washes per week × 52.

To calculate the average energy consumption, divide the average consumption in kWh per year (on the label) by 220 (assuming 220 washes per year).

1.5 Noise

With time the washing machine has improved in the area of producing less noise, which of course is a great thing. However, they aren’t completely silent yet. At 72 dB, this is a quiet device, whereas the noise level of 78 dB is considered loud, and an extra quiet washing machine produces 71 dB or lower sound. However, this is the level of sound produced when the machine is spinning. Fortunately, less dB is there when the mode is washing. In that case, 72 dB is the average.

A quiet washing machine is most preferred if you do laundry at night or you do not want your baby to wake up. Not all, but still, many consumers consider the noise level when choosing the best washing machine.

1.6 Washing Quality

The washing quality is determined by how the laundry comes out of the drum. And it further depends on other things such as the automatic detergent dosing, load sensor, steam function, rinse function, self-cleaning detergent drawer, drum cleaning, to name a few things. A washing machine with a maximum number of such functions will offer better wash quality. We recommend choosing at least a middle-class washing quality machine if the budget doesn’t allow for a top class.

1.7 Steam Function

Smart washing machines come with the steam function that minimises creases and reduces ironing afterwards. This program is ideal for shirts or delicates. It also aims to remove bacteria and animal hair. And if you are someone who often forgets the laundry, this feature will be a blessing since it keeps the clothes fresh longer in the drum itself.

1.8 Dimensions

The size of a washing machine is not irrelevant for all. Small households especially need to consider this factor. The washing machine must fit the narrow space. Another set of people who must consider the size of a washing machine is looking for a separate set of the dryer.

Usually, a top-loading washing machine is recommended for those with space issues. Also, please note that the higher the fill weight, the larger the washing machine will be.

1.9 Durability

The type of motor affects the durability of a machine.
A washing machine either has a brushless motor or a motor with brushes. And the brushless motor is more durable. It does not wear out fast, and the washing machine lasts longer. Usually, machines have a brushless motor which is more energy-efficient than a washing machine with a carbon brush motor. Moreover, a brushless motor offers more stability, and it is quieter and vibrates less.

There are carbon brushes around the engine in the carbon brush motor, causing drum to spin and transmit the electricity. The carbon brushes touch the motor armature, due to which the motor wear faster. Fortunately, more and more manufacturers are moving to brushless motors now.

Another critical factor affecting the durability of a washing machine is the parts’ materials. They have to be of good quality offering more durability for your washing machine to have a long life.

1.10 Washing Programs

A washing machine has different programs based on the type of clothes you want to wash. There are specific programs for silk, cotton, jeans, towel, dark laundry, sportswear, baby clothes or wool. The particular programs ensure that there are no accidents with woollen sweaters coming out of the drum too small. Other program lists include a hand wash program that is suitable for delicate laundry. Some models have a short wash program for a quick wash.

1.11 Ease Of Use

Modern washing machines have many functions that make everyday life a lot easier, including remote control via an app. Nowadays you can also have a high load machine and use it just to wash that one shirt or trousers. Of course, having an advanced program doesn’t mean that obvious functions become less important to take a look at. Whether primary or advanced features, the only thing that matters is that they are easy to understand and operate when you need them. Otherwise, this ‘making-life-easier’ appliance will only become a pain and waste your time.

Ease of use also includes the accessibility through the door for easy loading and unloading of the laundry. In addition, if there is illuminated light inside when the door is open, this ensures you do not leave any washed clothes in the drum. Beep sound produced indicating that the program is finished also adds to the easy-to-use list.

Technically advanced washing machines are, in fact, compatible with the app offering the convenience of operation. You can do the machine settings remotely and also receive the updates irrespective of your location.

Pre-program function and a washing machine that cleans the detergent drawer itself also provides ease of use.

1.12 Smart Features

Call these smart features an extension of the ease of use.

Automatic detergent dosing is one of the smart options because a machine with this feature automatically determines how much water and electricity is needed to get the laundry as clean as possible. This option is also known as load recognition.

It is also useful if you could pause the washing program when you have forgotten to add some laundry.

A washing machine pre-ironing your clothes is simply convenient and ideal. Samsung WW70J5585MW from our list provides pre-ironing as a program function. 

Another smart feature example is the SingleWash function to quickly wash less clothes such as trousers or a sweater.

Only a smart washing machine wash extra quickly with a separate QuickStart button.

Start delay smart feature lets you pre-fill the drum and put the detergent and washing powder in the drawer. Then you can set in how many hours the machine should start washing, and it will do the rest.

1.13 Water Consumption

The water consumption is usually stated on the energy label of a washing machine. The thumb rule is the less water the appliance uses, the cheaper you wash. If you know the water consumption per wash, multiply that by 220 for a family to get water consumption per year.

1.14 Ending Signal

We all engage in some other business while the machine is busy cleaning the clothes. Therefore, a washing machine must have an end signal to notify the user that the laundry is done. Usually, this end signal is a beep you automatically hear when your laundry is clean. The washing machine then gives an acoustic signal or switches off automatically.

2.3 Which washing machine is best for energy-saving continuous souls?

Brands mention energy rating on the washing machines, which varies from A to G class. As you go down the alphabet ladder, the machine loses its efficiency. So, class A machine is always better than class G machine. Besides that, you can follow some basic practices to reduce energy costs.

  • Use cold water to wash clothes as extra energy is required to heat the water.

  • Washing clothes in a full load leads to the effective utilisation of water and energy.

  • Always try to use the lowest water level as per load.

3.13 How to prevent early defects in a washing machine?

To prevent defects in a washing machine, maintain the machine properly. Here are quick tips that will help you keep your washing machine properly:

  • No Limescale

Limescale can break down a washing machine like nothing else. They are created by the lime in the tap water; when it comes into contact with high temperature, limescale forms.
