What to consider before buying a washing machine?

Before buying a washing machine one should look for quality of wash tub material, spin cycle, wash program, temperature control, energy efficiency and space occupied by machine. Here are the details of the mentioned specification:

1. Wash Tub Material

Wash tub holds and spins the clothes accordingly. It is very important for a washing machine to have a good quality wash tub. The quality of wash tub depends on its material used.

Porcelain-coated, plastic and stainless steel are the 3 most commonly used materials for wash tubs.

Porcelain-coated is the lowest quality material and can be deteriorated with time. Plastic is the most common material used in most mid-range washing machines, whereas the stainless steel wash tubs are of best quality and used in most high-end but expensive washing machines.

2. Spin Cycle

Spin cycles are the number of spins per minute, measured in rpm (revolution per minute). Most machines come with 800-1600 rpm. The higher the rpm, the drier the clothes will come out from the machine. However, this depends on the clothes also.

Some machines come with the variable spin speed, which is most favourable because it spins according to the type of fabric to protect any damage.

3. Wash Program

Wash Program are the preset settings in the machine which is used according to the type of fabric being washed. Spin cycle, water level, wash time and water temperature are some of the common things controlled by wash programs.

You can select the wash program from the touchpad, touch screen or even remote control in some cases. Some machines have fewer wash programs whereas some have as much as 150 wash programs stored in the memory.

4. Temperature control

You should always look for a manual temperature control system in the specification in the washing machine. If it’s not present, don’t buy it.

Temperature is very crucial for fabric. Washing at the wrong temperature can damage the fabric permanently.

5. Energy Efficiency

Always prefer an energy saving machine. This could cut some more bucks from the electricity bill. Rather than buying cheap and too much energy consuming washing machines, add some extra bucks in your budget and get an energy efficient machine.

6. Space occupied

This point is always ignored by most of the people. We have limited space in our house, so always look for the size of washing machine you are about to buy.

If your home is not permanent or you keep switching your job and place, it will be very helpful in such conditions.

What are the different types of Washing Machine?
