The Electrolux EW6F4R28WU washing machine is the most optimal choice in the category up to 30,000 rubles, according to experts and domestic users. It allows you to wash up to 8 kg of clothes at a time, but at the same time spends about 0.12 kWh / kg of energy. For you to understand, this is the best indicator in our rating. It implements touch control with 14 possible operating modes, incl. program for washing wool and cotton.
The built-in timer allows you to postpone the cycle by 20 hours, and the intelligent program 'time manager' precisely selects the shortest possible duration. Among other things, the model has an anti-allergenic function, implemented in all available operating modes. From the rest, one can single out the presence of complete protection against leaks and the annoying lack of functions for additional loading and drying.
- nice design;
- the most economical in terms of energy consumption;
- spacious drum;
- the time manager function gives the exact wash time to the timer;
- touch control.
- high noise level.
One step away from the leader, a smart washing machine from LG with the Smart Diagnosis function stopped. She is able to independently find problems in the hardware and report it to the user. The maximum load of laundry here is 8 kg, however, this indirectly affects the low economy (56 liters of water per one wash cycle). The number of programs is also not the largest: only 13. There is no complete protection against leaks, but all control sensors and protection from children are available.
One of the main advantages of LG F-1496AD3 is drying things. It can dry up to 4 kg of laundry at the same time, using the residual moisture method. This is very good for the preservation of the pristine state of things for a long time. Otherwise, there is nothing to note: the reliability of the car is high, the view is beautiful, and the noise level is quite acceptable.
- Smart Diagnosis system;
- the presence of drying;
- drum capacity;
- spin at 1400 rpm.
- partial protection against leaks.
Siemens WS 12T440
The third line of the rating goes to the Siemens WS 12T440 washing machine. It is noteworthy that it uses almost the same technologies as the model from Bosch, but surpasses its opponent in a number of parameters. The most striking coincidence is the VarioSoft drum and VarioPerfect washing technology. The iQdrive motor is also not distinguished by its quiet operation (56 dB in standard mode), however, it is no less efficient than EcoSilence.
In terms of efficiency, Siemens WS 12T440 is slightly better than Bosch WLL 24266. It consumes 38 liters of water for washing with the same energy consumption. The control is intelligent, but electronic, the display is symbolic and very informative. The number of programs installed is 15: these include washing wool and cotton. But the most important plus is hidden under the body – it is full protection against leaks. Although, generally speaking, this washing machine is very reliable and is unlikely to break down even after 5 years of operation.
- full protection against leaks;
- VarioPerfect technology and VarioSoft drum;
- very economical model;
- high noise level.
Bosch WLL 24266
Another representative of Bosch is included in our consolidated rating. It is a very economical model with a load of up to 7 kg, consuming 42 liters of water and 0.13 kWh / kg of energy. It implements intelligent touch control, and all information is displayed on a large digital display.
One of the main advantages of Bosch WLL 24266 is the implementation of 17 work programs. The delicate functions of washing wool, silk and shirts are placed in a separate item. Of the technologies used, the EcoSilence motor should be noted, which seems to be supposed to reduce the noise level. However, users don't see much difference with other washing machines. The second technology is VarioSoft, which reduces the wear of the laundry during spinning (by 1000-1200 revolutions) and washing. If we talk about the quality of performance of the main functions, then it is almost perfect. But with the equipment they did not hold out: partial protection against leaks can cause flooding of neighbors, since an 'open' pallet can leak.
- touch control;
- 17 work programs;
- VarioSoft technology that reduces wear on the laundry.
- high noise level even in spite of the EcoSilence engine.
The representative of the premium manufacturer of household appliances is on the fifth line of the rating. The maximum laundry capacity in it is 6.5 kg – a rather modest result compared to many competitors. But the model is controlled via a smartphone. It also has a rather small size and weight (54 kg).
When washing, Samsung WW65K42E08W uses EcoBubble technology, which improves the quality of washing and preserves clothes. In addition, the Diamond drum with a self-cleaning function is responsible for the delicacy of the laundry. It is also worth noting the presence of a ceramic heater in the machine and the function of additional loading of linen. But it was not without nuances. So, in the model, only 12 working programs are preinstalled, and the leakage protection is present only on the body (the pallet can leak). And the noise level turned out to be quite high (54 dB in standard mode), but this can be solved by a stable installation with fine adjustment of the legs.
- the possibility of remote control;
- efficiency (38 liters of water per cycle);
- bubble wash;
- ceramic heater for increased service life.
- relatively small set of built-in functions.
Vestfrost VFWM 1250 X
Washing machine in a silver case with a load up to 7 kg. It has an intelligent control system with a digital LED display. In addition to the advantages in manufacturability, it has signs of economy, and in almost all implemented programs. Energy consumption per cycle does not exceed 0.13 kWh / kg, which corresponds to class A +++.
In terms of operating features, the Vestfrost VFWM 1250 X has a contamination level selection function. This is a very useful feature that really works. The effect of the choice is felt, but you need to clearly understand that there is a weak and strong pollution. Also of note are the Boomerang hull and pearl drum, which reduces wear on clothing and improves the accompanying wash and spin processes.
- pearl drum;
- high quality washing;
- original appearance;
- wide loading hatch;
- quite noisy (problematic to use in the evening).
Indesit BWSE 81082 L B
The Indesit company has once again proved that it is a master of creating good washing machines in the middle price segment. Model BWSE 81082 L B deservedly enjoys the love of users and combines all the features of reliable household appliances. It allows you to load up to 8 kg of laundry, consuming up to 50 liters of water and 0.17 kWh / kg of energy. There are 16 programs as implemented washing modes, including work with wool and a delicate mode for white cotton.
In a standard duty cycle, it emits up to 59 dB of noise, and at a spin of 1000 rpm – all 74 dB. However, ergonomic drawbacks are covered by other, no less useful functions. Например, технологией удаления запахов и Push&Wash. For ease of use, the machine has a delay timer for 24 hours. It is also worth noting full protection against leaks and complete equipment with control sensors.
- 10-year service guarantee;
- large download;
- good quality of washing stubborn stains;
- removes odors from clothes;
- one of the cheapest in the rating.
- high noise level.
Bosch WLT 24440
Freestanding washing machine with a load of up to 7 kg, with intelligent touch controls and 15 work programs. Its main advantage is its economy: the A +++ energy class corresponds to energy costs of the order of 0.13 kWh / kg. Water consumption for a complete wash cycle is 38 liters. These are some of the lowest values in the rating.
As for the working capabilities, it should immediately be noted the presence of a timer and special noise reduction technologies. Thanks to them, the machine emits only 49 dB of sound in standard operation. However, the spin function cannot be called very quiet: 72 dB is uncomfortable, especially in small rooms. As a safety measure, the Bosch WLT 24440 provides full leak protection, child protection, imbalance and foam control.
- acceptable price;
- very economical;
- loading up to 7 kg;
- low noise level;
- application of EcoPerfect, SpeedPerfect, TouchControl technologies;
- EcoSilence Drive motor.

Weissgauff WMD 4148 D
Spectacular washing machine from Weisgauff with 8 kg load capacity and built-in dryer. Has a digital display and intelligent control system. Allows you to reload things through the main hatch: this is a very useful feature, since you can simply forget to put some of your things before starting the machine.
The Weissgauff WMD 4148 D washing machine has 14 programmed modes, including washing wool and silk. There is an express program for 'refreshing' clothes: just 15 minutes, and lightly soiled laundry will be cleaned. Also in this model there is a start delay timer for 24 hours, an operation control system and full protection against water leaks. The noise level is not featured in the descriptions, but users note that it is not particularly high. The machine works properly and quietly.
- 8 kg load of laundry;
- convenient washing programs;
- pleasant appearance;
- full protection against leaks;
- delay timer for 24 hours.
- annoying monotonous whistling and crackling sounds may be heard during drying.
Hotpoint-Ariston VMSD 722 ST B
A non-built machine with a load up to 7 kg, with a great appearance and an intelligent control system with a digital display. Its consumption per wash can vary from 30 to 50 liters, depending on the amount of loaded laundry and the selected program. By the way, the machine has 16 operating modes, including washing wool.
The Hotpoint-Ariston VMSD 722 ST B washing machine has partial leak protection and foam / imbalance control systems. The display also has a child lock. The only drawback of the model is the high noise level: during spinning it reaches 84 dB, and during normal operation it does not drop below 64 dB. This is a serious nuance that you should pay attention to. Especially if you live in a small apartment.
- high degree of reliability;
- 16 washing modes, incl. freshening things up and washing wool;
- acceptable energy and water consumption;
- beautiful appearance.
- very noisy.
This model has a direct drive inverter motor which results in longer machine life as well as energy efficiency. When loaded with 6.5 kg of laundry, it consumes only 0.17 kWh / kg from the network. Thus, the consumption for a standard wash cycle is 56 liters. The intelligent control system allows you to quickly and easily configure all the necessary washing parameters, and even control it via a smartphone.
Unlike the previous competitor, the LG F-12B8WDS7 has only 13 operating modes, including a program for washing woolen clothes. The timer allows you to delay the start by 19 hours. The noise level during normal operation is 55 dB, and during spinning at 1200 rpm – 76 dB. It is also worth noting the use of TrueStream technologies and '6 movements of care', mobile diagnostics and drum self-cleaning systems.
