One of the main features of a washing machine is the spin speed, this is the speed that the drum spins while it is washing and spinning. More water will be removed from the clothes with higher spin rates, this means the clothes will be easier to dry and will be dryer when you remove them from the washing machine. There are many spin speeds available with the popular washing machines, 1000, 1200 and 1600 are popular choices as they offer high spin speeds. If you have delicate clothing it is a good idea to buy a washing machine with variable spin speeds, this will avoid damage to the clothing and allow you to set the spin speed you requite, 1000, 1200, 1400, 1600 or whatever else you require.
All washing machines are also rated, the rating system uses a scale of A – E, A being the best and E the worst. The ratings are across three categories, wash performance, energy efficiency and spin efficiency. The wash performance is basically how well they clean, the washing machines that provide the best washing results get an A grade. The energy efficiency is rated on how much energy they use, the washing machines that use less water and electricity for the same results get an A grade. These washing machines will save you money on water and electricity bills and they are also better for the environment so it’s a good idea to look out for washing machines with a high rating in this area. The spin efficiency is the amount of water that is removed from the clothes during spinning, the washing machines that remove the most water receive an A grade.

One popular type of washing machine is the washer dryer, this is a washing machine that also includes a tumble dryer which means you can wash and dry the clothes in the same unit. These washer dryers are also the same size as normal washing machines so if space is an issue then a washer dryer is a good choice, they are also condenser dryers so you will not have to attach a vent which is convenient.

Programmes are an important aspect of washing machines, there are lots available and they vary from machine to machine. They include economy wash which reduces the running costs of the wash, half load which is for when you don’t have much washing and lots of programmes for specific types of clothes such as silk and wool.

So when you are buying a washing machine there are a few things you have to look out for, mainly the spin speed and how well it is rated in the wash performance, spin efficiency and energy efficiency categories. Price is also an important factor, allot of the top shops offer washing machines on great cheap special offers so it’s a great idea to have a shop around, you can save allot of money by getting a cheap special offer.
