What is a quiet washing machine

Buy a quiet washing machine if it is near your bedroom or kitchen

A quiet washing machine is a type of washing machine that is designed to produce as little noise as possible. Washing machines naturally make a lot of noise, especially during the spin cycle. This is when the drum of the washing machine, where the laundry is placed, spins at high speed to squeeze as much water out of the laundry as possible. The faster the drum spins during the spin, the drier your laundry will come out of the machine. This fast spinning causes vibrations, and that can make a lot of noise. A quiet washing machine is designed to create less vibration during washing. 

As a result, these washing machines are a lot quieter than other washing machines. Of course, silent washing machines also make noise, but the inconvenience is much less.

The noise level of a washing machine is indicated in decibels (dB) under the specification ‘spin noise level’. So this indicates how much noise the washing machine makes when it produces the best vibration – during spinning.

In the following list you will find the best washing machines in the categories quiet and very quiet. In making this selection, we have compared numerous washing machines with each other, looking of course at the noise level spin – but also at the fill weight, RPM, the number of different wash programs, the energy class and the customer rating, among other things.

Different noise levels of washing machines

Are you wondering when a washing machine is ‘loud’, ‘normal’ or ‘quiet’? We are happy to answer that question. The noise level of washing machines is indicated in decibels (abbreviated to dB). In the following overview you can read how the different sound levels are distinguished from each other and which sound level is suitable for which situation.

'Loud' noise level

Washing machines that produce 78 dB or more of noise during the spin cycle are considered ‘loud’ washing machines. These are fine machines to place in the barn or attic, but it is not recommended to wash with them if they are in the house and someone is sleeping.

'Normal' noise level

Most washing machines have this noise level. Here the spin reaches between 74 dB and 77 dB. Also these washing machines you would rather not turn on when you want to sleep. Ideally, you should put it in the attic, but an enclosed kitchen or bathroom will also do.

'Quiet' noise level

Quiet washing machines produce between 72 dB and 73 dB during spinning. A quiet washing machine can therefore be easily turned on at night, so that you can get your laundry out of the drum the next morning. A quiet washing machine can also be placed in an open kitchen or in the room next to a bedroom.

'Extra quiet' noise level

These washing machines are quieter than quiet and produce a maximum of 71 dB! Therefore, you can also put them in an office or a studio apartment. You can also feel free to turn them on when you go to sleep.

What to look out for when buying a quiet washing machine

The noise level can be very important when you go to buy a new washing machine, but of course there are more things to look out for. Here are our tips:

Fill weight

The fill weight indicates the capacity of the washing machine; how many pounds of laundry will fit in the drum. If you’re looking for a quiet washing machine, it’s best to go for one with the amount of fill weight that suits your household. If you are 1 or 2 persons, it is best to choose a quiet 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 have a household of 5 people or more, it is best to look at washing machines with a 9 kg or 10 kg fill weight.

Energy rating

The energy class of a washing machine was formerly known as the energy label, and it indicates how energy efficient a washing machine is. If you want an energy-efficient washing machine, it is best to choose a model of energy class A, B or C. An energy-efficient washing machine is often more expensive to buy, but in use you save money because it keeps your energy bill low. In addition, a washing machine with energy class A is also the best choice for the environment.

RPM

The speed of a washing machine indicates how many rounds the drum turns during the spin. The more rounds it makes, the drier your laundry will be out of the machine. In addition, the RPM can also be an indication of the noise level, but these are not necessarily connected. There are also washing machines that run at very high speeds (1400 rpm or more) that are also quiet. If it is important to you that your laundry is as dry as possible and makes as little noise as possible, look for a quiet washing machine with a speed of 1400 rpm (rounds per minute) or more. Most quiet washing machines run at 1400 rpm, but there are also quiet washing machines that make 1600 rpm.

Ease of Use

There is a lot of technology available today that makes it easier for you to wash. Think of a load sensor, delayed start, adding laundry in between (addwash), a self-cleaning detergent drawer, automatic detergent dosing and control via an app. Do you think you will benefit from all this while washing? Then make sure your new silent washing machine contains this technology.

Washing programs

There are countless different wash programs and every washing machine offers different ones. If you need a specific wash cycle, for example due to the composition of your household, make sure that the washing machine you buy actually offers that particular cycle. There are special wash programs for delicate fabrics, stains, sportswear, baby clothes, extra hygienic washing and shirts, among others. What programs should your new washing machine necessarily have?
