12 best washing machines under 20,000 rubles

Review of the best according to the editorial board. On the selection criteria. This material is subjective and does not constitute advertising and does not serve as a purchase guide. Before buying, you need to consult with a specialist.

More and more household appliances appear in our homes. Some of the devices serve for years, while their evolution is almost invisible. For example, the sense of purchasing a new refrigerator or vacuum cleaner is rarely found – usually these devices are bought only after the old one has failed. But this cannot be said about a washing machine. Many readers even have a washing machine, then with very limited functionality. Why not buy a new one, capable of better washing of laundry, and even more of its volume? Let's get acquainted with the best models among those that cost no more than 20,000 rubles.

Whirlpool FWSG 61053 WC

Rating: 4.9

Whirlpool FWSG 61053 WC

A good washing machine, distributed under a little-known brand in our country. Many representatives of our rating are narrow. Whirlpool FWSG 61053 WC is no exception to the rule, the depth of this model is 44 cm. At the same time, there is room inside the device for six kilograms of dry clothes. It should be placed in a drum that will rotate within the plastic tank.

It should be noted that the washing machine looks very good. And this despite the fact that most of the loading door is painted in the usual white! The silver edging saves, making the design more attractive.

Of course, the washing machine is electronically controlled. Every modern freestanding 'washing machine' possesses it. Only the number of programs differs for different models. Only 12 modes are available here. However, why 'only'? This will be enough for the absolute majority of buyers. In particular, the product will allow you to wash woolen clothes, as well as to use a pre-wash – this mode is necessary to eliminate old dirt. Of course, there are only technically difficult modes here – for example, steam supply or direct injection. Such programs are to be found in much more expensive washing machines.

The main advantage of this model is its very low power consumption. The car complies with class A +++! Measurements show that approximately 0.13 kWh is consumed per kilogram of laundry. As for water, 49 liters are needed for one wash. This is if any of the standard modes is selected. A relatively small figure, which is unlikely to scare anyone.

What other classes can this device boast of? Unfortunately, there are no surprises to be expected. The spin efficiency class C is even slightly disappointing. This low rating is due to the drum rotation speed, which is limited to a thousand revolutions per minute. But it cannot be said that at the exit you will receive completely damp laundry. Water will definitely not drip from him, although he will still have to hang on the clothesline. As for the efficiency of the washing itself, the machine has received the corresponding class A. This is normal, 'advantages' are usually not assigned even to much more expensive machines.

This model is very safe. There is protection against water leaks. However, the manufacturer does not specify whether this is full or partial protection. And the user can also lock the control panel so that his child does not start the washing process by pressing certain buttons. The device also knows how to monitor the imbalance, this also applies to the level of foam – if it exceeds the planned volume, then the rotation of the drum will stop. But this is already the standard for absolutely any modern washing machine, especially for those with a front loading type of laundry.

Of course, such an inexpensive model must have serious flaws. The buyer can find fault with the noise level. During spinning, it reaches 83 dB. This, of course, is not an airplane, but you can still hear the washing machine from another room. During washing, the noise level is less – usually it does not exceed 62 dB.

If the washing machine is in the bathroom, then the Whirlpool FWSG 61053 WC will definitely suit you. You will close the door tightly, after which you will forget that the process of washing or spinning is in full swing there. If you choose a washing machine for the kitchen or hallway, then it is better to familiarize yourself with the rest of our rating.

Advantages

  • Decent capacity;
  • Low power consumption;
  • Decent washing efficiency;
  • Decent appearance;
  • There is protection against leaks;
  • Implemented child protection;
  • Compact dimensions.

disadvantages

  • Not the best spin;
  • High noise level;
  • Not all useful programs are included.

Electrolux PerfectCare 600 EW6S4R06W

Rating: 4.8

Electrolux PerfectCare 600 EW6S4R06W

The Swedish company Electrolux knows how to create high-quality household appliances. Its washing machines have an increased service life and a very wide functionality, due to which they are in great demand. In particular, people cannot but be attracted by the model called PerfectCare 600 EW6S4R06W. I like everything here: from the appearance to the noise level.

This is one of the narrowest washing machines among those reviewed in our rating. Its depth is only 38 cm. This means it is ideal for a very small bathroom. Surprisingly, the drum installed here can hold approximately 6 kg of dry laundry. Loading of clothes and other things is carried out through a hatch with a silver border. There are absolutely no complaints about the design – such a washing machine would even decorate the kitchen. But here its depth will play a minus – as you know, in the kitchen, all appliances only have a standard 60-centimeter depth.

Such a device could not receive increased power consumption. Calculations show that about 0.13 kWh is consumed per kg of laundry. In a word, in this regard, the product does not differ at all from the model discussed above. This is evidenced by the energy efficiency class A +++. If we talk about water consumption, then it is only 43 liters. This is a real surprise for any buyer! However, with such dimensions, it is difficult to imagine that a washing machine tank could hold a larger amount of water.

The appliance makes a noise during washing, but not too much. Measurements show 58 dB. The spin, of course, is noticeably noisier. But 76 dB is unlikely to scare anyone, especially if the washing machine is in the bathroom. It is a pity that there is no night mode, in which the device would make even less noise. It would be useful, because there is a timer for delaying the start of washing. If you don't know, then this timer is useful for those people who pay for electricity at a reduced rate at night.

In total, 14 programs are available to the user. The most interesting of these is the steam supply. This function seems completely unexpected, usually it is not implemented in such inexpensive washing machines. However, here the steam is supplied under a fairly low pressure, which is why it does not work properly. In a word, in many cases it will be useless.

After the end of washing, spinning begins. This is the weakest feature of this model. Unfortunately, the drum at this moment only accelerates to 1000 rpm. In a word, it is not surprising that the device received a spin efficiency class C. It turns out that outerwear and bedding will have to dry on a rope for a long time.

Like many other washing machines, the Electrolux PerfectCare 600 EW6S4R06W received protection from children and water leaks. The first will prevent the child from accidentally starting the washing process – a special key combination will simply block the buttons. The second will help if there are some problems with the insides of the car. However, this is unlikely to ever happen. Here one gets the impression that it is possible to disable the device only deliberately.

Perhaps this is one of the best representatives of our rating. The buyer can only complain about the lack of a direct drive (which is why the device is not completely silent) and the spinning is far from ideal.

Advantages

  • Good capacity;
  • Minimum depth;
  • Very low power consumption;
  • Highly effective washing;
  • There is protection from children;
  • Implemented protection against water leaks;
  • A large number of programs, including steam;
  • The timer for the delayed start of washing has not been forgotten.

disadvantages

  • The spin is not ideal;
  • Quiet signal about the end of washing.

Samsung WF60F 1R2E2WD

Rating: 4.7

Samsung WF60F 1R2E2WD

Another very beautiful washing machine that made it into our rating. It is also narrow. Its depth is 45 cm. Hopefully it will fit in your bathroom. As for the capacity, it is 6 kg. I must say that our selection consists mainly of just such washing machines. Only those models that are much more expensive can accommodate more linen.

In the middle of the front panel of this washing machine is a very large loading door with a silver trim. And the upper part of the front side houses a control unit and a tray for washing powder. A small text display has also been introduced here. However, it is practically not needed, it is impossible to make a mistake with the washing mode and other parameters. But touch keys are not the best choice of the manufacturer. There is a possibility that the touchpad will have to be replaced in a few years. Whatever one may say, but touch technologies still cannot be called durable. However, this is just our guess. Reviews of such breakdowns do not say anything. But reviews on Samsung WF60F 1R2E2WD are not written many years after the purchase of this model – it was released relatively recently.

This product complies with A ++ energy efficiency class. Why didn't the device get the third plus? It is possible that this is due to the high rotation of the drum during spinning. 1200 rpm are waiting for you! Consequently, the motor spends additional energy. But on the other hand, the washing machine received a spin efficiency class B. This means that all kinds of T-shirts and T-shirts will be barely wet at the exit. In winter they will need to be dried for a very short time, and in summer it is very pleasant to put on such a T-shirt right away. By the way, this model has received washing efficiency class A. It turns out that it has to cope with most of the dirt.

One wash in such a machine consumes about 39 liters of water. Not a record, but this figure cannot be called any great value. Of course, some programs will lead to more serious water use. For example, this can be said of a 'prewash'. However, there is also an 'economical wash' – usually this mode is selected for washing underwear, it uses less water.

The device has received protection against water leaks, but only partial. It is hoped that there will not be any problems with the machine that will test this protection. Also implemented here is the control panel lock, which will prevent the child from accidentally starting the washing process. Of course, this machine is able to monitor the imbalance, not to mention the level of foam. As mentioned above, now such control is implemented in the vast majority of washing machines.

Perhaps this is a great model selling for 20,000 rubles. It is very difficult to find fault with her. Many users only note that it is noisy. During washing, the noise level can reach 61 dB. When the high speed spin starts, the noise level rises to 76 dB. However, even these values ​​cannot be called prohibitive. I am glad that the manufacturer has not forgotten about the timer for delaying the start of washing. However, in our country, nighttime tariffication of energy consumption fees is not widespread, which cannot be said about Europe.

Advantages

  • Protection against leaks is implemented;
  • The control panel can be locked;
  • There is a timer for delaying the start of washing;
  • The washing machine is narrow;
  • Very good spin;
  • Not very high power consumption;
  • Decent washing performance;
  • Not very high water consumption;
  • The capacity is 6 kg.

disadvantages

  • Not everyone will like the noise level;
  • Some useful modes are missing.

Hotpoint-Ariston RST 703 DW

Rating: 4.6

Hotpoint-Ariston RST 703 DW

It is a rare case when the loading door of the washing machine is equipped with a black border. It also contains gray plastic. All this makes the device unique. It will definitely decorate the bathroom. And the important thing is that it should fit there! The fact is that the depth of the washing machine is only 44 cm. It should be noted that this rating includes only narrow 'washers'. Full-size models usually cost more than $ 20,000.

As you may have noticed, many representatives of our rating hold only 6 kg of dry laundry. If this is not enough for you, then get yourself a Hotpoint-Ariston RST 703 DW. This model is designed for 7 kg. It turns out that this device will appeal to families with two or three children.

Capacity is not the only advantage of the washing machine that needs to be mentioned. Also, this model should be bought by those who are thinking about saving energy. The fact is that the device complies with the A +++ energy class. 0.13 kWh is used for every kilogram of laundry. However, the device also has a downside. It consists in increased water consumption. In standard modes, this parameter reaches 52 liters. Also, the manufacturer did not endow the motor with the ability to rotate the drum at an extremely high speed. To be precise, 1000 rpm is reached during spinning. It is not surprising that experts have endowed the device with a spin efficiency class C. In a word, get ready to accept this fact if you choose this particular washing machine.

The dimensions of this device are 60x44x85 cm. The weight does not exceed 63 kg. The body of the device is protected from water leaks. As for the control panel, it can be locked at any time. This is important, because this car will be bought by families with children. And we all know how children love to press all kinds of buttons.

In total, 14 programs will be available to the user. It's nice that, among other things, there is even direct injection here. This allows the powder to penetrate deep into the fabric structure, eliminating even serious stains. Other useful programs are also present here. For example, one of them is designed for washing children's clothes – when activated, an enhanced rinse is used, due to which absolutely all traces of washing powder are removed from the laundry.

The manufacturer has not forgotten about the implementation of the delay start timer. It will be useful in the event that you switch to a three-zone tariff for electricity consumption. If the washing machine is installed in the bathroom, it is unlikely that it will wake you up at night. However, this model cannot be called particularly quiet. During washing, the noise level can reach 64 dB. Spinning raises the noise level up to 82 dB.

Advantages

  • Large loading hatch;
  • Direct injection implemented;
  • There is a timer for delaying the start of washing;
  • There is protection from children;
  • Protection against water leaks is not forgotten;
  • Very low power consumption;
  • Excellent capacity.

disadvantages

  • The washing machine was very noisy;
  • Not the best spin;
  • Decent water consumption.

LG F-10B8MD

Rating: 4.5

LG F-10B8MD

The company LG Electronics has been manufacturing large household appliances for many years. Its washing machines differ from competitors by the presence of a direct drive, thanks to which the motor and drum are practically silent. Unfortunately, this concerns only mid-budget and expensive models. Our rating tells about those washing machines that cost no more than 20,000 rubles. Alas, there are some simplifications in them. For example, LG F-10B8MD has no direct drive. Also, this device is inferior to some competitors in terms of capacity. The drum of this machine holds only 5.5 kg of laundry.

I must say that the product LG is inferior to many of the models discussed in this article. A simplified motor consumes 0.19 kWh of electricity for every kilogram of laundry. In this regard, the product received an energy class A, without any advantages. And the device also has the same exact class of washing efficiency, which can already be attributed to the advantages. If we talk about spinning, then it will allow the washing machine to get the corresponding class B. Also a very good result, which some other representatives of this rating cannot boast. At the same time, the drum rotation speed during spinning reaches only 1000 rpm, a result far from a record. Apparently, improved rotation algorithms played a role.

As you might have guessed, this model is narrow. Its depth is 44 cm. The top cover is located at 85 cm height. Most importantly, it is removable. This allows the appliance to be integrated into a kitchen set. This is important for people whose bathroom has a very limited area. By the way, you don't have to be afraid to flood your kitchen. Protection against leaks is implemented here, albeit only partial. However, it is unlikely that something will ever happen to the device that would lead to a serious problem.

Like many of the other models reviewed here, the LG F-10B8MD lets you lock the control panel to prevent kids from accidentally activating the wash. Also, the product is endowed with control over the level of foam and imbalance. As for the programs, there are many useful modes among them. A total of 13 programs are available. However, even among so many of them there is no night mode. Therefore, the washing machine in any case will emit a noise level of 56 dB. But this is a very insignificant figure, especially if the device will be in the bathroom. The noise level does not become too high even during spinning. Agree, 74 dB is not a parameter that should be scary.

In a word, this is a good washing machine that combines both advantages and disadvantages. And some of its parameters can be called average. For example, this applies to the diameter of the loading hatch, which is 30 cm. But the presence of a timer for delaying the start of washing causes only positive emotions, although not for everyone.

Advantages

  • Not very high noise level;
  • There is a timer for delaying the start of washing;
  • There is protection from children;
  • You can not be afraid of leaks;
  • Decent washing efficiency;
  • A removable cover is used.

disadvantages

  • Some useful programs are missing;
  • Increased power consumption;
  • The capacity could be larger.

Bosch W LG 20060

Rating: 4.4

Bosch W LG 20060

Another narrow washing machine selling for 20,000 rubles. This representative of our rating is worth buying if the options discussed above are not available. In the absence of fish, as they say, cancer is a fish. However, this does not mean that this washing machine is bad. No, in this case, it simply would not be included in our selection. It just has a number of significant limitations. For example, its drum can only spin 5 kg of dry laundry. This is not great news for families with children. Also, with this parameter, a problem may arise when washing a down jacket or winter jacket.

However, let's continue the description of the device by its merits. And he certainly has them. Someone will certainly appreciate the removable cover for embedding. This will allow you to correctly place the washing machine in the kitchen. However, here the 40-centimeter depth can play a minus. In the bathroom, such a narrow washing machine will look perfect.

The advantages include washing efficiency class A. Only models that cost at least twice as much can boast a higher class. The water consumption of 45 liters is still encouraging. Of course, this figure is only valid for standard modes. With an economical wash, you can reduce this parameter even more. The pre-wash will slightly increase the consumption. By the way, a total of 15 programs are available here. Even direct injection can be found among them – this is a real surprise! If there was also a supply of steam, then there would be no price for the washing machine! Even despite the presence of certain shortcomings, which will be discussed later.

First, the minimum capacity should be noted. Alas, 5 kg of dry laundry by modern standards is very little. If your family has more than one child, you should consider buying a larger washing machine. Secondly, spinning causes some disappointment. When activated, the drum rotates at 1000 rpm. Again, not enough. It is not for nothing that the device received a spin efficiency class C. Also, experts have endowed this model with an energy consumption class A. This is the third drawback, some other washing machines are capable of using less electricity.

Otherwise, this is a typical inexpensive washing machine. It is partially leakproof. Its electronics are able to monitor foam levels and imbalances. But there is no control panel lock here. Therefore, you need to teach the child not to press the buttons, so as not to accidentally start the washing machine.

It remains to add that the hatch used here has a standard 30 cm diameter. Most importantly, it is capable of opening all 180 degrees, if the surrounding space allows it.

Advantages

  • A large number of programs, including direct injection;
  • There is protection against leaks;
  • Decent washing performance;
  • Low water consumption;
  • The washing machine turned out to be very narrow.

disadvantages

  • No protection from children;
  • Spin leaves much to be desired;
  • Not very low power consumption;
  • Not too much laundry.

BEKO MVSE 79512 XAWI

Rating: 4.3

BEKO MVSE 79512 XAWI

At one time, BEKO washing machines were incredibly popular. They found their customers not only due to the low cost, but also thanks to the ubiquitous advertising. Now this technique is in less demand. People just started to forget about this brand. But if you do decide to buy the MVSE 79512 XAWI, you will hardly be disappointed.

Most of all, the device pleases with its capacity. The manufacturer promises that the drum of his creation will spin even 7 kg of laundry! And there is no reason not to believe him, positive reviews confirm his words. Surprisingly, the washing machine has remained quite narrow. Its depth is 45 cm, which makes it possible to place the device even in a fairly small bathroom.

Another advantage of the washing machine is its energy efficiency. For every 1 kg of laundry, she spends no more than 0.15 kWh. This allowed the device to achieve the A ++ energy class. Not a record, but you will definitely not complain about electricity bills.

All kinds of protection should be included in the advantages of the device. The user should not wait for leaks, and his child will not randomly start the washing process. The electronics of the device are able to monitor the level of foam and imbalance, this is also important. And if we are talking about the electronic part, then we cannot but mention 15 washing programs. There is also an economical mode, which reduces the water consumption from 52 liters to a more sane value, and a pre-wash, and a super-rinse, and even steam! However, do not rely heavily on steam – it is supplied under low pressure, and therefore the powder is unlikely to penetrate very deeply into the structure of the fabric. But this is still better than the complete absence of such a function!

Perhaps the second most important advantage of the Beko washing machine is its low noise level. During washing, it does not exceed 56 dB. With this parameter, the device will not interfere and distract even if it is located in the kitchen. Well, during spinning, the noise level rises. But not to a critical value, only up to 70 dB.

It is a pity, but this representative of our rating consists not only of advantages. As you already understood, this device consumes a fairly large volume of water in standard modes. You can also find fault with the spin. The fact is that in this mode the drum spins up only up to 1000 rpm. As a result, the device received a spin efficiency class C. It's sad, but when buying a washing machine for 20,000 rubles, you always have to put up with something. In fairness, we have named the most serious shortcomings. It is impossible to find fault with the rest of the parameters. The manufacturer has not even forgotten about the timer for delaying the start of washing, which may be useful to some customers. Of course, there is no smartphone control and any other unusual functions, such as adding laundry. But if you want something like that, then check out our selection of the best washing machines. As you already understood, only much more expensive models have such functionality.

Advantages

  • Very large capacity;
  • Relatively compact size;
  • Low power consumption;
  • Effective washing;
  • Steam supply has been implemented;
  • Not very high noise level;
  • There is protection from children;
  • The machine is leak-proof.

disadvantages

  • Not very efficient spinning;
  • Decent water consumption.

Indesit IWUB 4085

Rating: 4.2

Indesit IWUB 4085

You might think that our rating consists exclusively of those washing machines for which they ask for exactly 20,000 rubles or even a little more. No, we got into our selection and those models that have an even more affordable price tag. For example, for Indesit IWUB 4085, Russian retail chains ask for no more than 15 thousand rubles. And in many cases, buying such a washing machine is even cheaper! So, what will the person who decided to acquire this model have to put up with?

First of all, the buyer will have to forget about washing a large amount of laundry. But what can I say, the device may have problems even when washing a heavy down jacket. The maximum capacity of its drum is 4 kg of dry laundry. This problem arose due to the fact that the manufacturer decided to make his creation as narrow as possible. The depth of this model is only 33 cm! But the washing machine should definitely fit in a small bathroom.

Someone will be scared off by the appearance of the device. There are no usual silver elements here – almost the entire washing machine is painted white. Its upper part is decorated with a removable cover – this indicates the possibility of at least partial embedding.

Another disadvantage of the device is the weak spin. Indesit IWUB 4085 is from the era when 800 rpm was considered a decent figure. Alas, now this corresponds only to the class of efficiency of the spin D. You can be sure that most of the time your things will need a lot of time to hang on the clothesline.

But what are we talking only about the shortcomings? Is this model really not going to please its owner? This question is difficult to answer. Perhaps, the device should suit with the efficiency of washing – in this regard, the product does not differ at all from the rest of the rating. As for energy consumption, it corresponds to class A. This means that 0.15 kWh is spent for each kilogram of laundry. And if such a figure is difficult to attribute to the merits, then the water consumption pleases much more. One wash in any standard mode consumes 39 liters. Of course, above we talked about more economical models in this regard, but they also cost much more.

The control panel built in here cannot be locked from children. But protection against leaks is implemented here, albeit only partial. As for the washing programs, there are relatively few of them here – there are 13 of them. There is no steam or anything like that, but you can wash sportswear and jeans, just as the economy mode is not forgotten here. We also introduced a start delay timer, which is necessary for those who pay for electricity at a reduced rate at night.

Otherwise, this washing machine is unlikely to please or upset you. It has the usual 30 cm hatch. Its drum rotates inside a plastic tank. The noise level is average. During washing, it is 59 dB, while during the spin, the noise level rises to 76 dB. Whatever one may say, but some washing machines are even more noisy.

In short, if your budget is very limited, then buy the Indesit IWUB 4085. But do not be surprised that in a year or two you will want a more advanced washing machine.

Advantages

  • Very low cost;
  • The device turned out to be extremely narrow;
  • Decent washing efficiency;
  • Implemented at least partial protection against leaks;
  • Built-in timer for delaying the start of washing.

disadvantages

  • There are questions about reliability;
  • Tiny capacity;
  • Poor spin;
  • Some useful wash programs are missing.

Zanussi ZWSO 6100 V

Rating: 4.1

Zanussi ZWSO 6100 V

An Italian-branded washing machine is also very inexpensive. Sellers of Russian online stores ask for it in the region of 14-15 thousand rubles. And from the low cost follows a large number of disadvantages. For example, not everyone will be satisfied with the fact that the device can only hold 4 kg of dry laundry. However, this will definitely be enough for families with no children. And certainly a washing machine will find a place for itself in the country, if it has a connection to the water supply and sewerage system.

As you might have guessed, the minimum capacity is not only related to the low price tag. The manufacturer tried to make its washing machine very narrow. Its depth barely reaches 34 cm. This is sure to delight those who have a tiny bathroom. And this, for a minute, is almost half of all Russians!

Unlike the previous representative of our rating, Zanussi ZWSO 6100 V has less appetites. This model complies with energy efficiency class A +. This means that it will not have too much impact on your electricity bills. Also, this washing machine does not tend to waste large amounts of water. The manufacturer declared consumption for one wash at 46 liters. By the way, the result of this process should definitely suit you. This is evidenced by washing efficiency class A.

Such a small and inexpensive washing machine could not have a motor capable of rotating a drum at a high speed. Alas, the maximum available is only 1000 rpm. As a result, experts awarded the device with a spin efficiency class C. However, this cannot be called an overly serious drawback. But 9 washing programs will definitely strain someone. There is no special mode for jeans and some other popular fabrics. We'll have to select the program by typing. Of course, you should not count on direct injection or steam supply.

This model has received partial protection against leaks. There is also protection from children, which is good news. A timer for delaying the start of washing has also been introduced here. All kinds of control are not forgotten – the electronics constantly monitors the level of foam and imbalance.

Perhaps this is a very good washing machine. She's definitely worth her money. Even the noise level will not frighten the buyer. Measurements show that during washing it does not exceed 58 dB. The spin is, of course, noisier. But 77 dB does not make the washing machine stand out too much against the background of more expensive competitors.

Advantages

  • Compact dimensions;
  • Very low power consumption;
  • Decent washing efficiency;
  • Protection against leaks is implemented;
  • There is protection from children;
  • Low water consumption;
  • The timer for delaying the start of washing has not been forgotten;
  • Very low cost.

disadvantages

  • Few washing programs;
  • Small capacity;
  • The spin is not impressive;
  • Boring appearance;
  • The washing machine is not reliable.

Schaub Lorenz SLW MC5531

Another narrow washing machine in our ranking. Its cost varies from 17,000 to 20,000 rubles – it all depends on which online store you place your order in. Outwardly, this model is unremarkable. Almost all structural elements are painted white, this even applies to the edging of the 30-cm loading hatch. In the upper part there is a dashboard consisting of a drum and several buttons. With their help, 15 wash programs are selected, and the water temperature and spin speed are specified.

As we said, the car turned out to be narrow. More specifically, its depth was 36 cm. I think that this is enough for the device to fit in many bathrooms. A couple of adult men will be able to bring the device into the apartment – the weight of the washing machine does not exceed 57.5 kg.

Such a small device could not have a huge capacity. Here this parameter is only 4 kg. Therefore, this washing machine will not work for a family with children. Someone will not be satisfied with the spin used here. The fact is that the motor rotates the drum in this mode only at 800 rpm. Delicate things don't need more, but you can't dry all sorts of jeans and jumpers at this speed. In a word, it is not surprising that the device received a spin efficiency class D. It's sad. Especially against the background of washing efficiency class A.

The manufacturer does not specify how much electricity is spent on washing each kilogram of laundry. However, the A + energy efficiency class means that things are not so bad. The control panel, which is easily blocked here, should also please. This means that the child will not be able to start the washing process without permission. Although we have already said that this washing machine is contraindicated for families with children. But if the small capacity and simple spinning do not scare you, then the purchase can still suit you. At least 15 programs will definitely please you. Here you can find modes that are sharpened for a variety of fabrics. There is also an 'economical wash' – this program involves reducing water consumption.

Despite the low cost, the device has received protection against leaks. But it is only partial – in fact, only the body is protected. But the control of imbalance and foam level is not limited by anything, the electronics are working properly.

Perhaps, it remains to tell only about the noise level. During washing, it reaches 58 dB – a perfectly acceptable value. When the spin starts, the noise level rises to 74 dB. Also not some kind of brutal meaning.

Advantages

  • Low power consumption;
  • Not very deep;
  • Good washing efficiency;
  • There is protection against leaks;
  • Implemented child protection;
  • A large number of programs;
  • The washing machine cannot be called loud.

disadvantages

  • Small capacity;
  • Poor spin;
  • There is no delay start timer;
  • There are questions about reliability.

Hotpoint-Ariston VMSG 601 B

Rating: 4.0

Hotpoint-Ariston VMSG 601 B

Another narrow washing machine that sells for little money. However, not so narrow. Its depth is 40 cm. This can strain those people whose bathroom has a very small area. Such people will consider other representatives of this rating. The rest will be glad that a full 6 kg of dry laundry is placed in the drum of this device. And they will also be surprised that the washing machine for sale for 16 thousand rubles received a silver edging of the loading hatch.

This model consumes approximately 49 liters of water. Of course, this only applies to work in one of the standard modes. It is clear that a pre-wash will increase consumption, while an economical wash will reduce it. Well, if we talk about electricity, measurements show that about 0.17 kWh is spent for each kilogram of laundry. The figure is decent, but that didn’t stop the washing machine from getting the A + energy class.

As you might guess, the device can boast of washing efficiency class A. Otherwise, the machine simply would not have made it into our rating. But spinning is less successful here. The drum can only rotate at a maximum speed of 1000 rpm. Any T-shirt after such a spin will only be slightly wet. Jeans will have to dry for a very long time. In a word, it is not for nothing that the device received the spin efficiency class C.

Inexpensive washing machines almost never get full leak protection. Here, too, it is only partial. The manufacturer also implemented protection against children, which, with such a capacity, is important. Finally, the device is able to monitor the level of foam. And beyond the imbalance, of course.

In total, the owner of this machine will be offered 16 washing programs. Here you can select a specific mode for all common fabrics. There is only anti-crease and other specific programs here – they should be looked for in more expensive 'washers'. But the delay start timer can be found here. It's nice. After all, you have already seen that not every cheap washing machine is endowed with it.

The main feature of this model is the large hatch. Its diameter has been increased to 34 cm. As a result, it is very convenient to use the device – even large outerwear can easily fit into such a hatch, not to mention bedding.

Perhaps the most serious disadvantage of this washing machine is its high noise level. Agree, 62 dB for washing and 79 dB for spinning is already quite a lot. But there is nothing to worry about if the device is in the bathroom.

Advantages

  • Large loading hatch;
  • Low cost;
  • There is a timer for delaying the start of washing;
  • A large number of programs;
  • Protection against leaks is implemented;
  • There is protection from children;
  • Low power consumption;
  • Good washing efficiency;
  • Decent capacity.

disadvantages

  • Not the best spin;
  • High noise level;
  • The washing machine was unreliable.

ATLANT 60C88

Rating: 3.9

ATLANT 60C88

It is a rare occasion when even a completely white washing machine is quite cute. It is also the only representative of our rating that is as close as possible to the full-size type. The depth of this appliance is 57 cm. This means that the washing machine is unlikely to fit in the bathroom if its area is small.

You would think that such a large device would use a roomy drum. Unfortunately, this is not the case. The maximum capacity of ATLANT 60C88 is 6 kg of dry laundry. Most likely, this parameter was influenced by savings. The manufacturer needed to ensure that his creation cost only 15 thousand rubles. As a result, he had to install a not very efficient engine inside. Even if the drum were larger, the motor simply would not be able to spin it with a lot of laundry.

This model uses electronic control. It is simplified just enough for even an elderly person to master it. At the same time, in terms of the number of programs, the product will outperform many other representatives of our rating. In total, 23 operating modes are available to the user! Here it is not difficult to choose a separate program for each type of fabric. There are even modes for washing wool and silk, not to mention some jeans. There is also a 'crease prevention' – a saving button for those who do not like to use the iron regularly. The manufacturer has not forgotten the delayed start timer. It, as you already know, is needed by those who pay for electricity consumption at a reduced rate at night.

By the way, 0.19 kWh is consumed here for every kilogram of linen. Big number. However, experts for some reason assigned the washing machine an energy class of A +. It seems to us that people who save energy should not look towards this model.

If you think about it, this washing machine has many disadvantages. For example, for one wash, it can consume 50 liters of water. Quite a lot! Also, this model is not capable of boasting a good spin. The drum barely accelerates to 800 rpm, which is why the product received only spin efficiency class D.

However, let's not dwell on the cons. Better to mention that leakage protection is implemented here, albeit only partial. Protection from children should also please. Foam and imbalance controls are also in place. There is also a delayed start timer, which may be useful to some Russians. As for the noise level, everything is ambiguous here. 59 dB for washing and 68 dB for spinning – is this a lot or a little? People don't complain. It turns out that the car in this regard is unlikely to disappoint you.

Advantages

  • Decent capacity;
  • Good washing efficiency;
  • There is protection from children;
  • Implemented at least partial protection against leaks;
  • A large number of programs;
  • Can combat creasing;
  • There is a delay start timer;
  • Low cost.

disadvantages

  • Big sizes;
  • Poor spin;
  • Extremely high power consumption.

Conclusion

Now you know which washing machines you should look at if you are not going to spend more than 20,000 rubles. Of course, for that kind of money, you can't buy a model with a very quiet engine. Often, a direct drive will not be available to you, which makes the device as reliable as possible. But this does not mean that the devices considered in this article are outright rubbish. No, many people will be quite satisfied with the possibilities that each of the washing machines considered here offers.
