Washing machine with 1200 rpm

A washing machine with 1200 rpm leaves a fair amount of water in the clothes

The RPM of a washing machine is of great importance. Before you buy a washing machine, therefore, it is good to know what exactly ‘RPM’ means, and how many revolutions you want your new washing machine to make. The spin speed indicates how many rounds the drum makes per minute while spinning. The spin speed determines how dry your laundry will be when it comes out of the washing machine. The more revolutions, the drier your laundry will be.

1200 rpm is generally considered a fairly low number of rpm – your laundry will still be quite wet when you take it out of the washing machine. For this reason, many people prefer a washing machine with a higher rpm, such as 1400 or 1600 rpm. In a 1600 rpm washing machine, your laundry will be as dry as possible.

 

However, the disadvantage of washing at a high number of revolutions is that your laundry will be damaged more quickly – your clothes, bedding and towels will not last as long. Another reason to go with a lower number of RPM’s is because you’ll be putting your laundry in the dryer anyway. In that case, the RPM may not matter at all.

The difference between 1200, 1400 or 1600 rpm

But what is the difference between 1220, 1400 or 1600 rpm? A washing machine that makes 1200 rpm while spinning has a residual moisture content of about 52%. For 1400 rpm, it is about 50% and a 1600 rpm washing machine 44%. At 1600 rpm your laundry will be as dry as possible, but the differences are only small.

Buying 1200 RPM washing machines: what to look out for

As we mentioned earlier, the RPM is an important aspect of your washing machine. But of course, there are other specifications and features to look out for when buying a new washing machine. Below you’ll find our tips for buying a washing machine with the RPM 1200.

Washing machine type

There are two types of washing machines: the front-loading and the top-loading washing machine. In general, there are far fewer 1200 rpm washing machines available than 1400 rpm washing machines, but the advantage is that you have a free choice between a top loading and a front loading machine – as the top loading machine is often not available with a high rpm.

The front loader is by far the most popular; it has the door at the front of the drum, so you can put a tumble dryer on top of the washing machine. The top loader is less common but also has its advantages. A top loader has the door at the top and is often slightly higher. This reduces the need to bend down when loading and unloading laundry.

 

Energy rating

The energy class of a washing machine, also known as energy label, indicates how economically a washing machine uses electricity per wash. Energy-efficient washing machines have energy ratings of A, B or C, with a washing machine with energy rating A using the least energy per wash. Energy-efficient washing machines are often a bit more expensive to buy, but much more economical to operate – and they are also the best choice for the environment.

Washing machines with rotational speed 1200 are unfortunately often not the most energy efficient, but some models have energy class C, which falls under the heading of ‘energy efficient’.

Filling weight

The capacity of a washing machine, also called the fill weight, indicates how many kg of laundry will fit in the drum. How much fill weight you need depends largely on the size of your household – the more people, the more fill weight you want. For a single or a couple, we recommend a washing machine with 6 kg or 7 kg of fill weight. For a small family, an 8 kg fill weight is better. If your household has 5 people or more, it’s best to look at washing machines with a 9 kg or 10 kg fill weight. 1200 rpm washing machines are available with different amounts of fill weight.

Noise Level

The noise level of a washing machine shows how much noise a washing machine produces in decibels (dB) when it is at its loudest – during the spin cycle. During centrifugation, the drum spins hard, which can cause vibrations and a lot of noise. 78 dB or more is considered loud, 74 dB to 77 dB is considered normal, 72 dB and 73 dB is considered quiet, and 71 dB and less is considered extra quiet.

With high RPM, often comes higher noise levels, but this is not necessarily the same. The type of motor, the quality of the materials and whether the washing machine has dampers also determine how loud a washing machine is. Most 1200 rpm washing machines have a noise level between ‘normal’ and ‘extra quiet’. 

Washing programs and ease of use

Washing machines are offering more and more options to make washing easier for you. For 1200 rpm washing machines, these include a load sensor, delayed start, add wash and a self-cleaning detergent drawer. Choose a washing machine with the extra features you think you need.

All washing machines offer different wash programs. Depending on the composition of your household, you may need certain programs such as special wash programs for delicate fabrics, stains, sportswear, baby clothes, extra hygienic washing and shirts.

Advantages and disadvantages of a 1200 rpm washing machine

We had still promised to go deeper into all the advantages and disadvantages of a 1200 rpm washing machine. Why is a low RPM good? And why do others choose a higher RPM? We answer those questions here.

Advantages

  1. Lower rpm means your laundry is less likely to get damaged, so your clothes, bedding and towels last longer.
  2. Your laundry comes out of the machine with a residual moisture content of 52%. This gives you the choice to let your laundry dry further by air, or to put it in the dryer.
  3. Washing machines use less energy at lower rpm.
  4. With a slower spin, you’ll find less wrinkles in clothes and bedding.

Disadvantages

  1. At a high RPM, your laundry will be drier. As a result, it won’t need to hang for as long or be in the clothes dryer for as long. Because a washing machine is generally more energy efficient than a clothes dryer, it is more economical to use a high RPM.
  2. You don’t have much choice, the majority of washing machines it a maximum spin speed of 1400 rpm.
  3. With a high RPM washing machine, you can set a lower RPM for each wash. Washing machines with a maximum rpm of 1200 do not allow you to go up.
