Washing machine with 1300 rpm
A residual moisture content of 44%
First of all, we want to answer the question “what is a rpm? A washing machine’s spin speed indicates how many rounds the drum makes per minute while spinning. The higher the RPM, the drier your laundry will be coming out of the washer. Washing machines that spin at 1300 rpm come under the heading of ‘high rpm’. This makes your laundry considerably drier, which is very nice if you don’t have a tumble dryer and have to let your clothes and bedding air dry further.
There is a wide range of 1300 rpm washing machines on the market. Most washing machines on the market today make 1300 rpm. In second place – by far – are washing machines that make 1600 rpm.
With higher rpm, your laundry will be slightly drier. Choose a 1600 rpm washing machine if you want your laundry to come out of the machine as dry as possible – namely with a residual moisture content of 44%. Washing machines that run 1200 rpm have a residual moisture percentage of 50%. This is sufficient for most households in the Netherlands.
If you don’t care about rpm, for example because you use the dryer anyway, you can also look at washing machines that run at 1200 rpm or less. However, there are not many of these because most new washing machines have a high rpm.

How to buy 1300 rpm washing machines
RPM is very important when picking a washing machine, but of course there are many other things to look out for when buying a new washing machine. Washing machines are complicated devices with many different aspects and specifications. Here’s what to look for when buying a high RPM washing machine.
Type of washing machine
There are 2 different types of washing machines: the front-loading and the top-loading. The front loader is the one you see most often and is the most popular. It has the door at the front of the drum, so you have space on top of the washing machine to put a dryer on. The top loader has the door at the top. These models are also often a bit narrower and higher, so you don’t have to bend over as much. Both types of washing machines are available with a speed of 1300.
The energy class, also known as energy label, indicates how energy efficient a washing machine is. This is usually not at the expense of the speed, as this uses less energy than you might think. The energy consumed by washing machines is mainly used to heat the water – and this is where the manufacturers of washing machines usually save energy. Energy consumption in washing machines is getting lower and lower – which is good for the environment and for your energy bill. Often, energy-efficient washing machines are a bit more expensive to buy, but they save you money in consumption. If you want to wash energy efficiently, it is best to look for machines in energy class A, B or C, with A being the most energy efficient.
The fill weight of a washing machine indicates how many kg of laundry will fit in the drum. This is also called the capacity of the washing machine. Exactly how much fill weight you need depends on several aspects, but the size of your household plays the biggest role. If you are with 1 or 2 people, it is best to choose a washing machine with 6 kg or 7 kg fill weight. If you are with 3 or 4 people, an 8 kg fill weight is better. If you are with a household of 5 people or more, it is best to look at washing machines with a 9 kg or 10 kg fill weight. Other reasons to go for more capacity could be because you do a lot of sports or wash more often due to an allergy.
Depending on where your new washing machine will be placed, the noise level is very important. During the spin cycle, washing machines can make quite a lot of noise. However, this is not directly related to a higher 1300 rpm. There are several reasons why the noise level of some washing machines is higher than others, such as the type of motor, the quality of the materials and whether the washing machine has dampers. Will your new washing machine be installed in the attic or shed? Then it’s best to choose a louder washing machine. But will it be in your bathroom, kitchen or a room next to a bedroom? Then we recommend you to choose a quiet washing machine. The noise level of a washing machine is indicated in decibels (dB). 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.
Washing programs and ease of use
Washing machines offer more and more options to make washing easier for you. These include a load sensor, delayed start, adding wash in between (addwash), a self-cleaning detergent drawer, automatic detergent dosing and control via an app. Do you think you will benefit from these while washing?
There are infinitely many different laundry programs, and that’s because everyone needs something different. If you, for example due to the composition of your household, have a need for certain wash programs, be aware that the washing machine you buy actually offers them. There are special wash programs for delicate fabrics, stains, sportswear, baby clothes, extra hygienic washing and shirts, among others. Be aware, however, that the high RPM of 1300 can often only be used for cotton laundry programs. For other fabrics and materials it is better not to use high rpm, otherwise your garments may not last as long.
Advantages and disadvantages of 1300 rpm
Everything has both advantages and disadvantages. Which ones are in relation to 1300 RPM washing machines, we’d like to go through with you.
- Your laundry will be relatively dry with a residual moisture content of only 44%. This allows you to choose whether to hang your laundry and let it air dry, or to put it in the dryer. Your dryer will not have to work as hard to get your laundry completely dry – which saves because it is less energy efficient than your washing machine. The dryer uses a lot of energy, which is bad for the environment and you’ll also notice on your energy bill. Also, clothes don’t last as long if you put them in the dryer often. Therefore, it is often better to let clothes air dry, which is also fine after you have washed them in a washing machine with 1300 rpm.
- In addition, your laundry will come out of the drum less wrinkled than with a 1600 rpm washing machine.
- And finally, you have an incredible amount of choice! The majority of washing machines sold today have a 1300 rpm.
- Your laundry will not be as dry as with a 1600 rpm washing machine during the spin cycle.
- If you choose a washing machine with a lower rpm, for example 1200 rpm, your energy consumption will be lower and you will have less wrinkles in your clothes.
