If you aren’t sure where to start, here is a brief introduction into some of the features that you can look out for.
What types of clothes do you wash most often? Make sure that the washing machine you go for can cope with any delicate or unusual types of laundry such as wool, synthetics or “hand wash” items. Most modern washing machines will have a number of different options so see what’s best for your needs.
Different washing machine have different load sizes, if you have a big family you may prefer to go for a machine that can handle larger loads and still clean them effectively. While it’s always tempting to cram in as much as possible, especially if you’re behind on the laundry, it’s simply not going to get things clean properly.Don’t be fooled by the outside dimensions of a washing machine, look at the figures for what each machine can take, normally given in kilograms.
Consider a combo washer/dryer
With property prices still going up and up, space is at a premium. If you have both a washing machine and a tumble dryer, you may be able to save a fair bit of space by getting one machine that’s up to both jobs. Not only that, Manchester’s reputation for being a bit on the damp side means that getting laundry dry by hanging it up can be challenge. It’s not nice to have to leave your nice clean clothes to sit, damp in the drum, when you’ve put it on before you head out to work. With a combo washer dryer you can stick your washing on and not need to do anything else until it’s cupboard ready. It’s set and forget. You can pop out to work and have it all done by the time you get home, rather that leaving a damp load in the machine for hours while you’re out the house. If you arent sure about how these devices work, have a look at our online range or call one of our team.

It may not be the most exciting job in the world looking for a new washing machine but it’s going to be a long term investment. A washing machine should last up to a decade, so you’re going to have to live with your decision – literally.
