What to consider when buying a washing machine

There are lots of things to consider when choosing the best kitchen appliances.

Integrated or freestanding?

The first is an easy choice: will your washing machine be freestanding or integrated? For those who don't like to have large appliances on show, you might want to consider an integrated washing machine as part of your kitchen design or utility room planning. And if your washing machine is to be in an open-plan kitchen, ensure it has a Quiet Mark (in other words, it runs quietly).

However, a freestanding washing machine can be a cheaper option than an integrated design. The average size of these washing machines is usually around H85cm x W60cm x D55cm.

For small kitchens, slim depth washing machines are a good choice, although bear in mind they will have smaller wash load capacities.

Wash capacity?

Other things to note are its spin speeds and the capacity it can hold in kilograms. A washing machine with a capacity of 6kg to 7kg is great for one or two people; 8kg will suit an average family; 9kg is for a large family.

For those who do several washes a day, or want to wash duvets, delicates or anything else you can't put in a normal wash, check for features such as eco cycles, special cycles or anti-allergy options. A time-saving option is also a handy option to have.

Spin speeds

Choose a machine with a high spin speed if you'll be using a tumble dryer, too. It's more economical to extract water from spinning than from tumble drying. Top of the range washing machines tend have a long spin cycle for cottons for efficient water extraction, and an interval spin for synthetics that reduces creasing.

Clever features

Be sure to check the water consumption as well as half loads, timer delay, sensor washing and auto detergent dispensing, which detects how dirty the clothes are and adjusts the programme and detergent accordingly for the most efficient wash. 

Aim for a washing machine with an A to A+++ energy rating, bearing in mind that the more expensive the washing machine, the higher its grading, as it will include a number of energy-saving features, as mentioned above.

For tumble dryers, you're either looking at a dryer-only or a washer dryer combination.

Want to set your machine to 'start' while you're out? Look for a smart machine you can control with an app on your phone.
