Buying guides

Find the ideal washing machine for you

SPACE & LOCATION

Whether you go for a freestanding washer, or one that's built-in behind a cabinet to fit in with your kitchen or laundry room theme, you need to make sure that the appliance will fit.

How much room do you have?

60 - 48cm width – we recommend a front-loading washer
48 - 34cm width – a slim front-loading washer will fit in this space
45 - 40cm width – consider a top loading washer

Top-tip: If you have a small laundry room, consider purchasing a 2-in-1 washer dryer combo. Good to know if you would like to stack a dryer on top is to choose a front loading washing machine.

CAPACITY

How many times a week do you run your washing machine?

Less than 4 times a week – a 5-6 kg washer will be sufficient unless you often wash large items like jackets and duvets
4-6 times a week – a 7 kg washer will suit your needs perfectly
6+ times a week – reduce your number of washes by simply selecting a machine with a large capacity (8+ kg)

TIME & CONVENIENCE

When do you do your laundry?
Select a machine with time-delay so you can delay the start of your cycle to a time that suits you: late at night or early in the morning for cheaper energy bills.

Do you want to control your washing machine remotely? 

It has never been easier to control your washing machine from a distance. Choose a connected washing machine that you can control directly via your own smartphone.

DRYING

How do you dry your clothes?
Choose a washing machine with a fast spin cycle for shorter drying times. The quicker your clothes spin in the wash cycle, the more moisture is spun out and the less drying they’ll need. 

Top-tip: Do not forget to set a slower spin cycle for your delicate clothes and garments to make them stay in shape for longer.
