Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

QHow much is a kilogram of laundry when measuring capacity?
A1kg of washing equates to approximately a single change of clothes (for example top, jeans, underwear, socks). Therefore an 8kg washing machine will be able to hold clothing approximate to 8 'outfits'
QWhat is the average noise of a washing machine?
AOn average, washing machines make between 50-60db of noise. This means the are fairly quiet - nothing that will disrupt daily life.
QWhat is the benefit of faster spin speed?
AFaster spin speeds mean that the water will be removed from the clothing faster and more efficiently, meaning they are less damp at the end of the cycle.
QWhat is a load balancing system?
AA load balancing system helps to spread the clothes evenly around the drum of the washing machine, rather than have them all bunch in a single place. This helps keep the machine more stable while in the spin cycle.

Washing Machine Buying Guide

Washing machines come in 2 different forms - top loading or front loading. While these two forms largely do the same thing, there are some small advantages and differences between them:

loading image

Top Loading

These washing machines tend to be older, and don’t have quite as much power, but because of this they are quieter and cheaper. Clothes are loaded into a hatch in the top of the machine - because of this they require less bending to load, which may be a boon for elderly people or those with back problems. The top-loading means that it can’t be stacked under other white goods, since you’ll need access to the top of the machine.

Front Loading

These comprise of the majority of washing machines. Clothes are loaded into a hole in the front of the machine. These machines generally are newer and have more power than top loading machines, though are also more expensive. This extra power comes with increased noise and vibration, which may be detrimental depending on where you’re going to be installing the machine. Finally, some brands of front loading machines can be stacked on top of each other, saving valuable space in flats and smaller utility rooms.

loading image

Additionally, some washing machines come as integrated - meaning they are altered to look like a cupboard or part of the work surface. These types of machines generally cost more than a standalone model, but may be worth the expense to gain a more streamlined and design-focussed kitchen.

loading image

Spin Speed, Noise & Vibration

Most modern washing machines will have a spin cycle that can run at the end of the wash, to remove excess water and mean the clothes dry faster. Higher spin speeds mean the clothes dry faster and more efficiently, but there is a tradeoff: higher spin speeds mean more noise and vibration from the machine while it is running.

Noise levels for washing machines are measures in Db - most washing machines fall between 60-70Db, which is generally equivalent to the noise of a vacuum cleaner running.

Vibration is harder to measure, but generally speaking the faster the spin speed, the more the machine will move around when you use it. Newer models have special technology to reduce the amount of vibration given off by the spin cycle - look for these machines if you want quieter washing cycles.

Capacity & Size Of Machine

The capacity of the drum in your washing machine will determine how many clothes you can fit in a single wash. Drum capacity is measured in Kg, with a single Kg being equivalent to a single outfit. Bigger washing machines have bigger capacities, which may be necessary for families - single people and couples may find it far cheaper and more energy efficient to buy a smaller machine.

Programs

Modern washing machines come with a variety of different programs to handle different types of clothing, levels of dirt, etc. Most machines will include programs for white and coloured washing, as well as delicates and quick cycles. More advanced machines may also have more specialist programs, with cycles catering specifically to the safe washing of woollen jumpers, pillows, jeans and even shoes. While not all of these programs may be necessary, more programs is generally a good sign of a higher-end and more capable washing machine.

All washing machines are graded on their energy efficiency. The higher the grade, the less energy will be used per wash, and the cheaper the washing machine will be to run. Look for a machine graded at A++ or above for the best efficiency in daily use.

How Fast Do Washing Machine Prices Drop After Release?

In the first 6 months after release, washing machines drop in price by 4% on average. If you are prepared to wait then you could save an average of £15 on a typical £411 new washing machine by waiting 6 months before buying.

Drum Capacities

The drum capacity refers to the amount of clothes that the washing machine drum can hold, measured in kilograms.

Across the range of washing machines, the drum capacities range from 1.5kg to 18kg. The drum capacities of most washing machines range from 8kg to 9kg. The washing machine with the biggest drum capacity is the LG F1K2CS2W, which is a 17kg capacity washing machine and sells for £1,589.68. The LG F8K5XN3, which is available at £399.90, has the smallest drum capacity and is a 2kg capacity washing machine.

A bigger drum capacity means that the washing machine can hold more clothes at once.

Noise Levels

How much noise the washing machine makes when it's in use, measures in decibels (dB).

Comparing all washing machines, the noise levels range from 39dB to 86dB. The noise levels of most washing machines range from 48dB to 54dB. The Hotpoint RSG964, which is available at £274.97, has the loudest noise level and is an 86dB noise level washing machine. The Sharp ES-HFH814QW3, which is priced at £409.00, has the quietest noise level and is a 39dB noise level washing machine.

Less noise makes for a nicer atmosphere while your wash is running, and means the machine is less likely to disturb and annoy people.

Maximum Spin Speeds

The maximum spin speed in the quickest that the washing machine can spin, measured in revolutions per minute (RPM).

Comparing all washing machines, the maximum spin speeds range from 100 RPM to 2,800 RPM. The maximum spin speeds of most washing machines range from 1,400 RPM to 1,500 RPM. The washing machine with the fastest maximum spin speed is the Siemens WM16W590, which is a 1,600 RPM maximum spin speed washing machine and is on sale for £815.00. The Siemens WP10R156, which is on sale for £554.25, has the slowest maximum spin speed and is a 100 RPM maximum spin speed washing machine.

A faster spin speed means the clothes will have water spun out of them faster and more efficiently - making the overall wash time shorter.
