Types of washing machines
If you’re looking for a new washing machine, you probably have a certain type in mind. You can distinguish between washing machines based on many different characteristics. We’ll go over which ones they are today.
Different types of washing machines
There are many different types of washing machines, as everyone has a preference for different specifications and features. Some people need extra high fill weight, while others find it more important that their washing machine is extra quiet or energy efficient.
To give you an insight into all the different types of washing machines, we have listed them all here for you. Do you already know which washing machine you are looking for? Then you can directly click through to your desired type of washing machine.
Washing machines by family size
Many people look for a washing machine that fits the size of their household. If you live alone or as a couple, you obviously won’t choose the same washing machine as a family with three children. When choosing a larger washing machine, also consider the energy label of the washing machine.
This mainly has to do with the amount of fill weight of the washing machine, in other words; how much laundry fits in the machine. The larger your household, the more space you need in the drum. These are all types of washing machines for different family sizes.

Washing machines based on fill weight
How much laundry you can fit into the drum per wash is an important criteria for many people when buying a particular washing machine. How much fill weight your new washing machine needs is largely determined by the size of your household. But there are more aspects that come into play.
A household that does laundry often will benefit from more fill weight. And there are several good reasons why you should wash your clothes more often – for example, because of an allergy or because you exercise a lot. Read more about washing machines based on fill weight here.
Washing machines based on RPM
The spin speed is another important feature of a washing machine – it determines how dry your laundry comes out of the machine. This number indicates how many rounds the drum turns during the spin cycle. The higher your RPM is, the drier your laundry will be. When washing at high rpm, you can therefore hang your laundry up for a short time so that you don’t have to put it in the dryer – which also saves you energy.
Please note that we are talking about maximum rpm here, which is usually only used in cotton laundry programs. Washing programmes for finer laundry do not spin as fast.
