Let’s sum up.
Which washing machine is better to buy? You shouldn’t choose a washing machine for the price alone. Expensive — does not mean yet «OK», and vice versa. Look for your future car among the models of a trusted manufacturer who has a good service center in your city .
Washing machines of which company is better?
The answer to the question of which manufacturer of washing machines is better depends on the amount planned for the purchase of equipment. The Miele company confidently leads the world rankings, these washing machines last a long time, but its products are not affordable for everyone. LG produces many interesting models. Not all LG innovations are equally successful, but perhaps the LG and Bosch washing machines are among the best in the mid-price range..
Atlant is distinguished by affordable prices for its products — as well as for services. And for the repair of these machines are taken up in almost any service center. Samsung has a similar situation – moderate repair costs, a good set of functions and quality of washing. But the fact that Samsung washing machines are designed for the mass consumer, and their low price, affects the quality of this brand’s products. The metal is thin, the build quality is excellent in some batches, poor in others, etc. Washing machines AEG and Electrolux are of high quality, and usually there are no problems with repair, but their machines are more expensive. Bosch, Siemens have been at the top of the ratings for many years, they are of good quality and functionality, however, repairing washing machines is very expensive, replacing one part can cost almost as much as the appliance itself.
How to choose a washing machine?
First of all, it is worth determining the place for installation. And already, depending on the free space, select the dimensions and type of loading of the washing machine.
If you are the owner of a large room, the best option – standard size models (60x60x85 cm). Contrary to popular belief, their main trump card is not a large load at all, but a better washing quality due to an increased working surface of the drum and maximum stability due to a wide setting on the floor; For more cramped conditions, medium-sized machines with a depth of 45 cm are suitable. They have a pretty decent load, are not very susceptible to vibrations, and wash laundry well. But during installation, you need to plan additional space to open the hatch door and drain the hoses; More compact options – this is «narrow» frontal models with a depth of 40-42 cm, although the interpretation itself is not entirely correct. After all, they are not at all smaller in width. However, the term stuck long ago. But really narrow can be called machines with the top loading method. They have a width of 40 and a depth of 60 cm. This option will additionally save space, since the lid opens up. These machines are specially made heavier in order to compensate for the vibration arising from the closer arrangement of the assemblies and the drum. The noise level is usually higher. This must be taken into account; The smallest «super slim» cars at 33-36 cm and low «babies» for installation under the sink. They are less durable and have an average wash quality due to the small drum. It makes sense to choose such models in cases where the larger size simply does not fit in any way; If the installation is planned in the kitchen under the countertop, you need to assess the possibility of connecting communications and make sure that the size of the niche matches the dimensions of the washing machine. The latter can be built-in or free-standing, but the second option implies that the top will be completely removable, since many models have a high front panel..
There are a lot of good washing machines in our market now. The main thing when choosing — correctly determine what you need. After all, each family considers the different functions and parameters of the washing machine to be the most important (size of the case, drum capacity, set of washing programs). For some, dimensions are important, while for others the option of washing sports shoes is indispensable. Use our rating to find your ideal assistant.
