Buy the best washing machine: what to look for

Do you want to buy a new washing machine and are you looking for the best buy? No one else knows better than you what kind of washing machine you need. It’s just that new washing machines evolve so quickly that you only need to buy a new one every 10 years. For that reason, you may not know what to consider when buying a washing machine. We’ve put together our tips for finding the ‘Best Buy’ washing machine.

Type, size and fill weight

Practicalities first! To start with, you need to find out whether the washing machine you have your eye on is practical to use in your household. For that, it’s important to determine …:

  1. whether you are going for a front-loading or top-loading machine, this determines which side the door to the drum is located on;
  2. how big the washing machine can be. No doubt you already have a place in mind where the new washing machine will be placed. Measure it carefully to make sure you buy a washing machine that fits;
  3. how much fill weight you need. The size of the drum determines how many kilos of laundry go into a full drum, and therefore how much you can wash at once. A 6 kg or 7 kg fill weight is suitable for up to 2 people, 8 kg for 3 or 4 people, and 9 kg or more for families of 5 or more.
Energy class

A big advantage of buying one of the best washing machines, is the fact that they generally have a better energy class. An energy efficient washing machine uses a lot less electricity per wash – which is good for the environment, but also keeps your energy bills down. Previously, energy class was known as energy label. If you are looking for an energy-efficient washing machine, it is best to go for one with energy class A. An energy-efficient washing machine often costs a little more to buy, but in the long run it will save you money.

Washing quality

The main task of the best washing machine is to clean your clothes and other laundry properly. All washing machines are assessed for their washing quality, which is done on the basis of the following specifications, among others: wash result A, automatic detergent dosage, a load sensor, a steam function, extra rinse function, a clothes-protecting drum, a self-cleaning detergent drawer and drum cleaning. Washing quality is divided between basic, medium and top class. Most washing machines have a washing quality of middle class. If you want the best washing machine, it is best to look for washing machines with a top class washing quality.

Noise level

If you would like a quiet washing machine, look at the noise level. This indicates in decibels (dB) how much noise the washing machine produces while spinning. 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. If your washing machine is going to be placed near living spaces – such as your living room or office – we recommend going for an (extra) quiet washing machine. The same advice applies to anyone planning to wash at night.

RPM

Ideally, you want your laundry to be as dry as possible when it leaves the drum. To do this, look at the spin speed of the washing machine. This indicates the maximum number of spins the drum can make during the spin cycle. For most washing machines this is around 1400 rpm, but if you want your laundry as dry as possible, you should look at washing machines that make 1600 rpm. Keep in mind that this applies to regular cotton wash programs – with wash programs for finer laundry, the washer will not spin as hard and therefore your laundry will not get as dry.

Build quality

The build quality of a washing machine is an indication of how durable and sturdy it is. The build quality of washing machines is determined by the following specifications, among others: brushless motor, water protection, a stainless steel drum, tub and door hinge, a balance system, self-cleaning detergent drawer, drum cleaning and a housing of metal with enamel. New washing machines are divided between the basic class, middle class and top class. Most washing machines have a mid-range build quality, but if you are going for the best washing machine, it is better to choose one with a top-range build quality. Not all brands and suppliers are as open about the build quality of their washing machines. If the build quality is not communicated, the price and brand of the washing machine can be an indication. Expensive washing machines from major brands are not necessarily of good quality, but it can be an indication that the appliance is made with good materials.

Ease of use

If you want the best washing machine, you may want it to have extra features that make it easier to wash and ensure that this good washing machine will last longer. When it comes to ease of use and convenience, new washing machines are offering more and more high tech features and options. Think of: delayed start, a clothes-protecting drum, adding laundry in between, a load sensor, operation via app, automatic detergent dosing, steam function, a self-cleaning detergent drawer and drum illumination. But above all, consider what different programs you need.

Best washing machine brands

If you are looking for the best washing machine, you will notice that there are several major brands selling washing machines. Buying a new washing machine from a particular brand can be extra tempting because you may already have experiences with it, or because the brand is well known. A-brands are often known for their use of the latest technology and good quality. As a result, A-brands often have a longer lifespan than cheaper washing machines – but that doesn’t necessarily mean that all washing machines from a lower price range are bad.

Keep an eye on the Consumers’ Association to find out about the quality of the cheaper brands. Want to know which brands offer the best washing machines? We have listed them for you below.
