Cheap Washing Machines

By: Gen Wright


A standard washing machine comes with an incredible number of features and settings. One of the first things you should check when selecting a new washing machine is whether or not your preferred settings are available on your new machine. If you have a certain way you like to wash your clothes, it would be unfortunate if your new washing machine could not facilitate this. For example, if you currently wash at 40 degrees setting with cottons selected, check that your potential new washing machine can also be set at "cottons - 40 degrees". It may sound obvious, but not all washing machines can facilitate the more obscure settings, particularly surrounding delicates.

As well as picking the style and colour of your washing machine, it is also wise to check the dimensions of your washing machine before you buy a new one. Many kitchens have built in washing machines. These should be used to store your washing machine and obviously must be next to your water supply. However the dimensions of these areas are obviously not identical in each house. So if you are moving house or perhaps having a new kitchen built, make sure you check the size of your built-in area.

If you are fitting the washing machine into a similar area of the kitchen, you should check if the washing machine was concealed, and if so, how. Many built in washing machines reside behind cupboard doors. This means that the washing machine usually has a flat front to allow the doors to close. Not all washing machines have flat fronts, particularly newer models that have a rounded doors. This means frequently the doors will not close.

Running a washing machine can take up a lot of water and electricity. The amount of water used and the energy consumed can take up a large chunk of any home energy bill. For those who use hot water to clean their laundry, that bill can skyrocket even higher since 90% of the energy used to wash a load of laundry comes from heating the water. So one of the important factors when choosing a washing machine is to consider how environmentally friendly it is, particularly in today’s climate.

Wherever you choose to buy your washing machine from, it's important to consider many factors and make an educated decision. Your washing machine is an integral part of your kitchen so make the most of buying a new one.
