What is the best brand of washing machines

To get straight to the point, the Dutch Consumers’ Association annually investigates which are the best brands of washing machines. This year, Miele washing machines came out on top, with a brand satisfaction rating of 9.4!

Miele is a German brand that has been making washing machines since the 1960s, and is known for delivering quality. The Consumers’ Association survey showed that owners of a Miele washing machine would also prefer to buy a Miele next time. In terms of satisfaction with performance and ease of use, there is no arguing – Miele is the best washing machine brand. On average, Miele washing machines also have the longest lifespan. In fact, they last 16.6 years on average! For all other major washing machine brands, the lifespan was between 10 and 13 years.

Which other brands were good

Of course, there are several brands that performed well according to the Consumers’ Association. In particular, AEG, Bosch, Siemens and Samsung are also very noteworthy brands when it comes to washing machines. Zanussi was also tested as one of the best, which is notable because they fall under a lower price range.

Every year, the Consumers’ Association tests which brands offer the best washing machines. This is the top 10 of best washing machine brands.

Brands that just did not make the top 10 are Whirlpool and Indesit. Do you choose one of the top 10 brands? Then you can be sure that your new washing machine will last for years and wash at high quality.

Brands for a cheap washing machine

Big brands often have big price tags. For that reason, Miele also scores lower when it comes to the price-quality ratio. Because we know that not everyone has the budget for the best washing machine of the year, we would also like to talk about the other washing machine brands. These are not considered A-brands when it comes to washing machines, but that doesn’t mean they necessarily wash less well or have a shorter lifespan.

Price and brand can be indications of quality because it is more likely that the product is made from better materials and there is more thought put into the design and technology. However, this is not a guarantee. Just as it is not a guarantee that cheaper washing machines are of poor quality.

There are several washing machine brands that can wash well, and at the same time have a nice price-quality ratio. Which brands these are, you can read below. The Consumers’ Association survey shows that consumers find Zanussi and Beko to have the best price-quality ratio.

 
  1. LG washing machine
  2. Haier washing machine
  3. Beko washing machine
  4. Indesit washing machine
  5. Zanussi washing machine
  6. Whirlpool washing machine
  7. Samsung washing machine

That’s right! Samsung is in the top best brands as well as in the list of cheap washing machine brands. This is because Samsung delivers good washing machines with a fair price-quality ratio. Both Samsung and the other brands mentioned above have washing machines that are much cheaper than those from Miele, Bosch and Siemens.

What to look out for when buying a new washing machine

The brand can be a good guide when buying a new washing machine. Major brands are often a little more expensive to buy, but you get something in return. A-brands are known for the use of good materials, durable design and the latest technology. But of course the brand doesn’t say everything. With the tips below, you’ll know exactly what else to look for when buying a washing machine, whether you go for a Miele, Siemens or Indesit.

Filling weight

The wash weight of a washing machine is one of the most important aspects. It indicates how much laundry will fit in the drum. Depending on the size of your household, you need a certain amount of fill weight. We recommend the following: If you have 1 or 2 persons, choose a washing machine with a 6 or 7 kg fill weight. If you have a household of 3 or 4 people, go for an 8kg washing machine. Are there 5 or more of you? Then you should look for washing machines with a capacity of 9 kg or more.

Energy label

Washing machines are expensive products, especially if you go for an A-brand. Therefore, pay close attention to the energy class. This indicates how much the washing machine will cost you in use. The higher the energy label, the less energy it consumes. This is good for the environment, but it also keeps your energy bill low. Energy efficient washing machines have energy drawers A, B or C.

RPM

The RPM indicates how many revolutions the drum of a washing machine makes per minute while spinning. If you want your laundry to be as dry as possible, for example because your dryer will take less time to run, choose a washing machine with 1600 rpm. 1400 rpm is more common and usually sufficient. In both cases you can hang up your laundry and let it air dry, only with 1400 rpm it will take a little longer.

Noise level

The noise level is an indicator of how quiet a washing machine is. If you want a quiet washing machine, it should be no louder than 73 dB. Want an extra quiet washing machine? Then it should produce no more than 71 dB during the spin.

Ease of use

A modern washing machine today is packed with technology to make washing easier for consumers. Examples include a load sensor, delayed start, control via an app, automatic detergent dosing, adding laundry in between and drum illumination. Do you think you can benefit from this? Then make sure your new washing machine has these features.
