Buying a Washing Machine

Buying a Washing Machine

Choosing a washing machine should be an easy job, shouldn't it? It's not one of life's more important decisions, but you will be using your washing machine for many years, so it's worth careful consideration. Our Washing Machines Buying Guide will help make your decision the right one.


Types of Washing Machines:

There are two basic types of washing machines: Top loading washing machines and Front loading washing machines. Each of these has its advantages.

Newer, high efficiency top loading washing machines require less water because they tumble, agitate, lift and drop the laundry during the wash cycle. They also have faster spin cycles, which results in faster drying times.

The biggest disadvantage to front loading washing machines is that it is a little difficult to keep clothes from spilling out when the door is open, especially with big loads. Also, while it's easy to toss that dirty towel you forgot about into a top loader even when it's in the middle of washing, this is not so easily accomplished with a front loader. Otherwise, there are many advantages to front loading washing machines:



  • Space Saving
Along with not having to allow space for an agitator, front loading washing machines allow you to stack the dryer on top of them. The only way this can be accomplished with a top loading machine is if you have the dryer mounted on a shelf high enough to allow you to open the washer lid.



  • Efficiency
Front loading machines get to work as soon as you start them up. As the clothes tumble, water starts spraying onto them. When the water level reaches a certain level, the clothes dip into and out of the pool of water at the base of the bowl. This saves a great deal of water: an important consideration in these resources and energy conservation conscious times.



  • Wear and Tear
Front loading washing machines tumble clothes, while top loading washers agitate them. Front loading machines are therefore much gentler on your wash than top loaders.



  • Auto Balancing
Better washing machines have automatic balancing features that save you the chore of having to re-adjust the load if it gets out of balance. There is nothing more frustrating than coming back to the machine and finding that it shut off mid-cycle because all the clothes got heaped up on one side of the tub during a spin cycle.



  • Water Efficiency Rating
In our opinion, the water efficiency rating should be a major consideration when you purchase a washing machine.



  • Load Capacity
Small washing machines have a load capacity of as little as 5kg, while large capacity home washers can handle up to 11kg. For an average family of 5, a 7kg machine is usually sufficient.



  • Spinning to a Different Drum
Horizontal-axis washers (front-loaders) have one major drawback: They can cost more than vertical-axis machines. Still, with the energy savings they provide, front-loaders may save you money in the long run.



  • What Should You Purchase?
Top loading washing machines are generally cheaper than front loading washers. They are also very easy to use: just throw the clothes in and away they go. For singles, couples and smaller families, a top loading machine might be just the ticket. For better performance, you can choose a high efficiency model. Also bear in mind ergonomics. You have to bend down a great deal more to reach inside a front loading washing machine. This can be difficult or even dangerous for the elderly or those who are prone to back problems.

If you do a lot of washing and have a large family, then you should seriously consider a front loading washing machine. According to most surveys, they wash more efficiently and give a cleaner wash. They also have a faster spin cycle, so whether you air or machines dry your wash, it will dry faster.
