Buying a washing machine for the first time or wanting to replace your old one? Deliberate upon your preferences before making your buy. Buy an appliance that best suits your preferences, your household laundry requirements and your budget.
You may be looking for a machine that saves you the hassle of handling loads of laundry daily apart from saving your time. You may choose from the fully automatic and semi-automatic models. If you want minimal involvement with the laundry and your budget permits, then you can choose a fully automatic machine.
Semi-Automatic Washing Machines
In these kind of machines, you need to manually put the clothes into the spin tub for drying after the washing is complete. This may take some efforts as the clothes need to be brought out carefully and untangled. Pulling or rough handling can damage your clothes. Also, the water supply has to be started and stopped manually.
Fully Automatic Washing Machines
These require minimal human control. The machine opens and closes the water supply valve on its own,and there is no need to manually shift the clothes into the spin tub for drying. The machine washes and dries in the same compartment with the help of automatic feature.
Your Machine’s Capacity
Most washing machines have a minimum capacity of 6 Kg. That is, you can wash 6Kgs of laundry in your wash machine at a time. Overloading is never recommended as that can impair your machine. If you get a huge household laundry to wash daily, you can choose a machine of larger capacity of 6.5, 7.2, 7.5, 8, 8.5 Kgs. A larger machine’s capacity will enable you to wash more clothes at a time and reduce your laundry stress.
Top Load and Front Load Washing Machines
Confused whether to buy a top load or front load washing machine? While semi-automatic machines are all top loads,the fully automatic ones can have either top load or front load. Front load feature draws on efficiency engineering and hence can be more expensive than the top load models.
Front load washers require lesser water, detergent and power and are gentler on clothes as clothes move inside the bin by the force of gravity. In top load models agitators are attached to help in clothes movement during the washing process.
Yet some people are happy with top load laundry machines as according to them these can drain large volumes of highly foamy and soapy water much better than the front load washers. Make sure to use the right detergent for your machine. If you have a front load model use front load wash machine detergent.
Washing Machine Features
Washing machines come with basic and enhanced features. For example, a machine with basic feature will have three wash programs namely gentle, normal and heavy whereas a machine with enhanced wash program features can have up to 12 wash programs. Other enhanced features include temperature control, heating element, power saver, super drying ability and other features.
