How to choose a washing machine

First, let's find out exactly how to decide on the choice of a washing machine. And it's not about a specific model – everything is clear here, you need to look at the reviews and specifications. First of all, you need to understand what type of washing machine you need at all. The fact is that such devices have a different design. In particular, they may differ:

  1. Load type – it depends on how exactly you will put the laundry;

  2. Drive type – speaking very roughly, the engine's service life depends on it;

  3. The material from which the drum is made – usually stainless steel and plastic are used by manufacturers of washing machines.

It is these three aspects of choice that we will talk about. You will think about other parameters (spin speed, noise level, number of programs, etc.) on your own. Or you won't, if you just decide to choose one of the models discussed in our rating.

Which is better: vertical or horizontal washing machine?

Washing machines are now divided into two groups. One includes front-loading devices, the other – vertically. The first type includes devices familiar to us, the front panel of which is decorated with a round loading door. The ease of use of such a device depends on how many degrees the hatch opens, as well as on its diameter. The front-loading washing machine can be built-in. This means that the device can be placed in the kitchen by placing a worktop on it. And even without it, you can keep some things on the top cover of the device – for example, detergents. In a word, the buyer will definitely not experience any inconvenience. Exceptions to this rule are only in cases where the installation of the washing machine is supposed to be in an extremely confined space.

Front-loading washing machines have one drawback that many are unaware of. Such devices often have moisture in the rubber seal. This means that after washing, the hatch must be kept open for several hours, otherwise an unpleasant odor will appear in the future.

Top-loading washing machines are especially popular with Americans. The fact is that they install such devices in a basement or even a garage, where the space is already filled with other equipment and all sorts of rubbish. In such a place, it is simply impossible to bend over to open the loading door. Well, you can always get access to the top cover. The disadvantage of this solution is the fact that it is impossible to place any things on the lid of the washing machine. Well, some kind of shelf can be hung only half a meter above the device.

When choosing a top-loading washing machine, pay attention to whether the device is able to fix its drum in that position so that its flaps are located directly under the top cover. If there is no such function, then after washing you will have to turn the drum with your hand until the flaps are in the right place. Nothing complicated, but the process is boring.

Which is better: direct drive or belt?

Any washing machine is powered by an electric motor. Its main task is to spin the drum. But how exactly does he do it? In inexpensive devices, the shaft rotates the drum using a belt. This is the simplest drive design and has been in use for many years. Suffice it to recall the devices produced in the USSR – a belt drive was also used there. Only that belt was so thick that the service life was almost unlimited. Modern washing machines use a thinner belt. The choice in its favor is made in order to reduce noise and reduce energy consumption. But is it necessary to say that a thin belt can break one day? I am glad at least that any master who earns money by repairing household appliances will cope with its replacement. And some owners of washing machines carry out belt replacement themselves!

In the 21st century, direct drive washing machines began to appear. Basically, the company LG Electronics made a bet on the production of such devices. In these devices, the engine and the drum are actually a single whole. That is, there are no unnecessary moving parts. This design has a number of advantages. For example, a belt drive is much noisier. You will only hear the direct drive washing machine during the spin cycle, when the drum is accelerating to a very high speed. Also, the absence of additional moving parts has a positive effect on the service life. The aforementioned company LG imposes a ten-year warranty on the motor – it was the direct drive that allowed this to be done. Also, this design contributes to the introduction of an inverter, thanks to which the electronics of the washing machine measures the weight of the laundry, pouring a volume of water suitable for its amount, and also allows the drum to rotate in the opposite direction. Therefore, such devices are also economical!

As you can imagine, direct drive is preferable. However, devices equipped with it are usually expensive.

Which tank of the washing machine is better: plastic or stainless steel?

The most controversial point. The washing machine tank, inside which the drum is located, can be made of different materials. Usually the choice of the manufacturer is made in favor of stainless steel or plastic. In fact, the selected material has almost no effect on the washing process. However, a stainless steel tank is much more reliable, its service life is almost unlimited. But it is also noticeably more expensive in production, and therefore the purchase of a washing machine equipped with it will require a large investment.

It is impossible not to notice that plastic is lighter than stainless steel. Therefore, practice shows that it is much easier to bring a washing machine with a plastic tank into the house than a monster with a stainless steel tank. Some users argue that plastic is also a very durable material, and all sorts of burrs can appear on the steel tank. In fact, this is not necessarily the case. There are cases when a plastic tank has cracked after serving for several years. And this leads to a big problem, especially if the washing machine does not have full leak protection.

What else to look for when choosing a washing machine?

We said that we will not delve into the characteristics of washing machines in detail. But let's go over them at least briefly:

  1. Device type – automatic or semi-automatic. This article deals exclusively with automatic devices, which can also be considered stationary. The 'semiautomatic devices' usually include activator models designed for use in a dormitory or somewhere in the country – we will talk about them in a separate article.

  2. The spin speed is an important parameter that determines how dry the laundry will turn out. However, one must not forget that especially thin fabrics in any case cannot be squeezed out at high speed, because they can be torn.

  3. Drying is a special function that can be implemented in one way or another. Allows you to completely or at least almost completely abandon the traditional clothesline. Of course, a model with a built-in dryer will be about two to three times more expensive than the usual one.

  4. Capacity – shows how much dry laundry can be washed at one time. An important setting for families with children.

  5. Sizes – some people first of all pay their attention to them. If you plan to install the device in a confined space, then it is recommended to look towards narrow or even ultra-narrow models.

  6. The number of programs is far from the most important parameter, but you shouldn't forget about it completely. Too many operating modes can only make it difficult to use the washing machine, so you need to buy a device with a reasonable number of them.

  7. The timer for delaying the start of washing – its presence is important for those who have different electricity tariffs during the day and at night. The timer can be used to order the device to start washing after a specified number of hours.

Perhaps we can stop at this. Now you know how exactly to choose a washing machine. Then it's time to get acquainted with the best models among those that are available in Russian retail.

Best Top Loading Washing Machines

Electrolux EWT 1264 ILW

Rating: 4.9

Electrolux EWT 1264 ILW

Our rating starts with the appliance that consumes the least amount of electricity. This is evidenced by its A +++ energy class. The width of this model is only 40 cm. Perhaps this is the main advantage of many top loading washing machines – they do not take up much space in space. At the same time, the depth reaches the standard 60 cm, so you should not be surprised that the device is capable of washing 6 kg of dry laundry. Such a car is quite expensive, so the Swedish manufacturer did not save. He endowed his creation with automatic drum positioning, so that the flaps are always in the right place. Moreover, they also open smoothly – not all washing machines can boast of this either. The tank here is made of plastic – it's up to you to decide whether this is a minus.

The user has 14 programs available. You can wash any fabrics in such a machine – there is always a suitable mode. Also, many customers have appreciated the anti-crease function when you can forget about the iron. Someone will find the timer to delay the start of washing useful.

During operation, this model emits noise at a level of 57 dB. A lot, but the washing machine cannot be called especially loud because of this. During spinning, the noise level increases, but this applies to absolutely all devices considered today. It is much more important that the device has received full protection against leaks – even if something happens to the drum, you will not flood your neighbors. And there is also a control of imbalance and foam level. As for the spin, it is carried out at a speed of up to 1200 rpm. This is quite enough to obtain semi-dry laundry, as evidenced by the spin efficiency class B.

It remains to add that in one cycle the machine consumes 47 liters of water. The control here is electronic, but it is not difficult to understand the buttons and controls. In short, the Swedish giant has made a wonderful washing machine, which is bound to please the buyer.

Advantages

  • Good capacity;
  • There is an automatic positioning of the drum;
  • There is a timer for delaying the start of washing;
  • High rotation speed during spinning;
  • Electronics monitors foam level and imbalance;
  • Decent wash quality;
  • High energy consumption class;
  • Additional loading of linen is possible;
  • Adequate dimensions;

disadvantages

  • The cost may seem high.

Whirlpool TDLR 70220

Rating: 4.8

Whirlpool TDLR 70220

Another washing machine in our rating, the depth of which is 60 cm and the width is 40 cm. At the same time, the height of the appliance is slightly increased when compared with standard models. Due to this, the manufacturer managed to bring the capacity up to 7 kg of dry linen. We can safely say that this will suit even those who have two or three children in their family.

As befits such a washing machine, it has a function to add laundry. But the buyer will be much more pleased with the direct drive. The American manufacturer did not stint by combining the drum and engine into a single piece. Therefore, you can be sure that the motor will last more than ten years. By the way, it is the direct drive that determines the price tag, which reaches 35 thousand rubles. But if you divide this amount by many years of using the device, then the figure will turn out to be quite small.

The device is fully leak-proof. If suddenly something fails, then there is no need to wait for the flooding of neighbors at this moment. However, something can only happen if you forget to take sharp objects out of your pockets. It should be noted that the drum is automatically positioned in the desired position so that you do not have to rotate it to access the flaps. It rotates quite quietly – the manufacturer claims the noise level is not higher than 54 dB. This parameter increases only during spinning. But no wonder, because in this mode the drum starts to rotate at a speed of up to 1200 rpm. As a result, the laundry turns out to be semi-dry, as evidenced by the spin efficiency class B – it was they who were awarded the device after testing.

It remains to add that the user is provided with 14 programs. Among them, you can find a super rinse, which is necessary when washing children's clothes, and an economical wash. The last mode is useful when washing underwear when you need to reduce water consumption.

Advantages

  • There is a 24-hour timer for delaying the start of washing;
  • Excellent capacity;
  • Implemented full protection against water leaks;
  • Spin at high speed of rotation of the drum;
  • Energy class A +++;
  • Direct drive is used;
  • Low noise level;
  • There are wheels on the body;
  • The doors open smoothly;
  • There is an automatic positioning of the drum;

disadvantages

  • High price.

Hotpoint-Ariston WMTL 501 L

Rating: 4.7

Hotpoint-Ariston WMTL 501 L

One of the most inexpensive washing machines. At least among those with the top loading type. This model can be bought for 25-26 thousand rubles. In terms of its size, it hardly differs from the devices discussed above. But the power of this machine is small, so it is not able to wash a huge amount of laundry at one time. The capacity of 5 kg is officially declared – it is not recommended to throw more things into the drum. This means that this model does not need to be bought by families with two or three children. There are also some other restrictions. For example, the manufacturer has endowed his creation with only partial protection against leaks. However, in this price segment there are devices without one at all, so there is no need to complain. But it is impossible not to mention spinning. Its efficiency class C indicates that the laundry will dry on the rope for a long time. When spinning, the drum rotates only at 1000 rpm. However, why 'only'? Many housewives use this parameter even when it is possible to use a higher speed, trying to keep their things in perfect condition.

The main advantage of this washing machine is the minimum water consumption. One wash only takes 42 liters. This is a great result. But the energy consumption is average here, as evidenced by the corresponding class A (no pluses). As for the number of programs, it should suit everyone. 18 operating modes allow you to wash absolutely everything, even wool. Special functions include super rinsing and economical washing. There is also a timer for delaying the start of washing. In a word, this device fully deserves the money spent on it. It is not suitable only for families with children and those who like to receive practically dry clothes at the exit.

Advantages

  • Control over foam level and imbalance is implemented;
  • There is a possibility of additional loading of linen;
  • Low water consumption;
  • Decent washing efficiency;
  • A large number of programs;
  • There is a timer for delaying the start of washing;
  • Not very high cost;

disadvantages

  • Not the highest spinning speed;
  • Some examples don't last very long;
  • The capacity could be larger;

Zanussi ZWY 51024 WI

Rating: 4.7

Zanussi ZWY 51024 WI

The cheapest top-loading washing machine in this ranking. Of course, there are even cheaper options, but their characteristics are completely disappointing, as are the negative reviews. People hardly ever complain about Zanussi ZWY 51024 WI. They have at their disposal a device, the dimensions of which are 40x60x85 cm. The body of the product is protected from leaks and painted in a traditional white color. Under it is a traditional drum, which is fixed each time by the system in such a position in which the user has access to the flaps. By the way, this function is a rare guest in such inexpensive washing machines.

The drum used to its maximum is capable of rotating at 1000 rpm. The noise level during spinning does not exceed 74 dB, which is quite acceptable. The spin efficiency class C is also about what you expect from a budget 'washer'.

It's nice that the product spends no more than 47 liters of water per wash. This is not a record low parameter, but there are also less economical cars. The appliance has been assigned a washing efficiency class A. It also received an energy efficiency class A ++, which is also good news. It should also be noted that there are special sensors, due to which the electronics monitors foam and imbalance. A timer for delaying the start of washing, maximum calculated for 9 hours, may also come in handy.

8 programs can cause some grief for the buyer. This is very small by modern standards. However, most fabrics can be washed with them. At the same time, additional functions are available here, which are very useful. For example, you can note the prevention of creasing, thanks to which you have to use the iron quite rarely (but this function makes the wash about 10 minutes longer). In short, you can still consider the option of buying this model. This is by far the best option for those who are not going to spend any big money on a washing machine.

Advantages

  • Not the highest water consumption;
  • Affordable price tag;
  • There is an automatic positioning of the drum;
  • Built-in timer to delay the start of washing;
  • A large number of useful functions are available;
  • There is control over the level of foam and imbalance;
  • Partial protection against leaks is implemented;
  • Low power consumption;
  • Good washing efficiency;
  • Additional loading of linen is possible;

disadvantages

  • The capacity does not exceed 5.5 kg;
  • Poorly picks up powder from the tray;
  • The beeping signal is able to act on the nerves;
  • Not the most efficient spin;

Best Narrow Front Loading Washing Machines

Bosch WLT 24440

Rating: 4.9

Bosch WLT 24440

This appliance has a traditional round hatch, complemented by a silver-black edging. The design of the device turned out to be very nice and even memorable. The dimensions of the washing machine are 60x44x85 cm. Usually such a device can be placed even in a very cramped bathroom. Of course, a narrow model rarely boasts a large capacity. Here, too, the maximum load of laundry does not exceed 5.5 kg. However, this is quite enough even if you live with your soul mate, only families with children will want more.

German engineers managed to achieve a very low water consumption – here it is 39 liters. Interestingly, even with such an amount of liquid, the device manages to cope well with its main task, as evidenced by the washing efficiency class A. Also, the product does not consume the largest amount of electricity, which will affect the corresponding bills. In short, Bosch WLT 24440 is a great option for budget conscious people. By the way, there is a timer for delaying the start of washing. Most of all, its presence will please those who pay for electricity at a reduced rate at night.

The drum installed here is capable of rotating at 1200 rpm. Spinning at this speed corresponds to efficiency class B. The result is very good, though not ideal. Unfortunately, only much more expensive washing machines can offer even better spinning. And if you want to get the perfect result, then it is better to look in the direction of washing machines with dryers – we will also tell about them in this rating.

Advantages

  • Full protection against leaks is implemented;
  • Modest dimensions;
  • Minimum water consumption for washing;
  • Sufficiently high rotation speed during spinning;
  • Good washing efficiency;
  • The product belongs to energy efficiency class A +;
  • The device monitors the foam level;
  • There is an imbalance control;
  • There is a timer for delaying the start of washing;
  • The diameter of the loading hatch reaches 32 cm;

disadvantages

  • It is found on sale less and less;
  • Not everyone will like the touch buttons;
  • Not very large capacity;

Siemens WS 12T440

Rating: 4.8

Siemens WS 12T440

The German company Siemens rarely makes cheap household appliances. So the WS 12T440 washing machine costs tangible money – about 35 thousand rubles. And this despite the fact that the depth of the product does not exceed 45 cm. That is, the creation of this device did not take the greatest amount of material. Why is this model worth so much money?

First of all, attention is drawn to the low power consumption, due to which the device was awarded the corresponding class A +++. This means that the car will have very little effect on electricity bills. But even more pleasing is the excellent spaciousness. You can safely load 7 kg of dry laundry into the drum used here – the motor will accurately cope with its washing, the efficiency of which corresponds to class A. At the same time, the machine will not consume a large amount of water – its consumption per wash usually does not exceed 38 liters. Well, upon completion of washing and rinsing, spinning will begin, at which the drum rotation speed can reach 1200 rpm. However, spinning is the weakest feature of this washing machine, in terms of its quality, it does not differ from competitors from the same price segment.

The user is offered 15 washing programs, which can be considered the most adequate number. Also, the engineers have endowed their creation with a timer for delaying the start of washing, the maximum that can be set for 24 hours. It is also impossible not to note the rather large diameter of the loading hatch. Well, the drum here is made of special plastic. As for the engine, it belongs to the iQdrive range. Therefore, its rotation depends on the amount of laundry inside the drum.

Perhaps this is one of the best front-loading washing machines in the mid-budget price segment. The Germans definitely know their stuff!

Advantages

  • Low power consumption;
  • Quite low noise level;
  • Large loading door with silver edging;
  • There is a timer for delaying the start of washing;
  • Electronics monitors foam level, imbalance and other factors;
  • Full protection against water leaks;
  • Low water consumption;
  • The capacity reaches 7 kg;
  • Good spin at speeds up to 1200 rpm;
  • Decent washing efficiency;

disadvantages

  • Water regularly remains in the conditioner tray;
  • There is no anti-crease function.

Samsung WW65K42E08W

Rating: 4.8

Samsung WW65K42E08W

Another washing machine in our rating, which has a depth of 45 cm. It is also very spacious – up to 6.5 kg of dry laundry can be loaded into the drum. Unlike competitors with a similar price tag, the device has a white loading door. Moreover, it is convex and very beautiful. In its upper part, you can see a separate door – with its help you can add a new portion of laundry right during the wash! It turns out that this is one of the few front-loading washing machines to offer this feature! We can safely say that this model is able to surprise not only you, but also your guests.

The instrument panel of the device consists of a convenient knob, physical buttons and a digital display. With the help of all this goodness, you can choose not only one of the twelve programs, but also the time to complete the wash. And by pressing a certain key combination, the drum cleaning starts. This is necessary after especially dirty things have been in the washing machine, inside of which there was a lot of sand. It should also be noted that there is a ceramic heater here – its service life is very long. The other side of the coin is the high cost of replacing this part if it does fail.

There are only 12 wash programs here. But their lack is not felt. It seems that absolutely any fabric, even wool, can be washed here. At the same time, the user is provided with additional functions that are very useful. What's more, this washing machine can produce steam! Needless to say, this is how the cleaning agent molecules penetrate the fabric best? It is surprising that the experts awarded this model only with the washing efficiency class A. It seems to us that the supply of steam allows you to get rid of clothes even from stubborn stains, which less expensive washing machines are not capable of. By the way, bubble washing is also available here, when air passes through the fabric, pushing out dirt particles.

Another feature of this model is the direct drive. We talked about its benefits in more detail at the beginning of this article. We can safely say that the motor of this washing machine will last at least a decade. And this despite the fact that it is capable of spinning the drum with a large amount of laundry up to 1200 rpm! Interestingly, spinning is not a strong feature of the device, as evidenced by the corresponding class B. However, faster rotation of the drum is only able to withstand especially dense types of fabric.

Perhaps this model is worth the money. It can be seen that the South Koreans this time gave their best. The device lacks only drying, but it is present only in more expensive devices. Another reason in favor of buying this washing machine is reviews with positive ratings – buyers find it difficult to find at least some tangible shortcomings.

Advantages

  • Good capacity;
  • Sophisticated drum and ceramic heater;
  • Bubble wash and steam available;
  • Consumes approximately 39 liters of water per wash;
  • Additional loading of linen is possible;
  • Direct drive is used;
  • Can be controlled using a smartphone;

disadvantages

  • Decent noise level during spinning;
  • The end melody takes too long;
  • Steam supply is possible in only two modes;

LG F-1096ND3

Rating: 4.7

LG F-1096ND3

The South Korean company LG knows how to create beautiful washing machines. Isn't that LG F-1096ND3? This model is decorated with several chrome elements that shine beautifully in the light of a lamp or chandelier. The dashboard here is complemented by a display that shows the remaining wash time. But, of course, this model got into our rating not only because of its pretty design. We also liked the characteristics of the device.

It was LG Electronics that at one time first began to use direct drive in its washing machines. And here it is he who is used – there is not a single superfluous moving element between the engine and the drum. This not only contributes to a long service life, but also a reduction in noise levels. When you are near a running machine, you will only hear splashes of water. Only during spinning does the noise level increase by 20 dB. By the way, the device is still somewhat limited in its capabilities – spinning here is realized only at a speed of 1000 rpm, which is why it is still impossible to achieve complete dryness of the laundry. The device can rotate up to 6 kg of dry laundry. At the same time, it does not consume the largest amount of electricity, due to which the product has received the corresponding class A +.

It should be noted that the device has a removable cover – therefore, it can be built in. In the kitchen, this washing machine shows itself in the best possible way – it not only does not make noise, but also hardly vibrates. Its software base is endowed with a large number of modes and additional functions, among which are anti-crease and super-rinse. A timer for delaying the start of washing is also built in here – you yourself know when it can come in handy.

Otherwise, this is a typical mid-budget washing machine. It contains all the most important sensors, so it is not difficult for the electronics to monitor the imbalance and foam level. Claims can be made only for the diameter of the hatch, which does not exceed 30 cm. However, the hatch swings open all 180 degrees, so problems with loading linen can arise only in exceptional cases.

Advantages

  • High energy consumption class;
  • Affordable price;
  • Attractive design;
  • There is control over the level of foam and imbalance;
  • There is a timer for delaying the start of washing;
  • A large number of useful functions;
  • Direct drive built in;
  • Low noise level;
  • Partial protection against leaks is implemented;

Asko W6884 W

Large enough, but very spacious washing machine. This representative of our rating is ready to wash things not only for adults, but also for two or three children. In total, the manufacturer claims that the engine is ready to rotate the drum, which contains 8 kg of dry laundry! At the same time, the device intelligently consumes electricity, and therefore it received the corresponding class A ++.

It should be noted that the deeper the washing machine, the quieter it can run. Here this parameter reaches 59 cm. As a result, noise is emitted during washing, the level of which does not exceed 46 dB. Everything changes only during the spin cycle, when the drum starts to rotate at a speed of up to 1800 rpm, and the noise level rises to 75 dB.

Partly because of such a chic spin, the washing machine costs more than 70 thousand rubles. Spin efficiency class A is a rare occurrence. This assessment indicates that even jeans and other dense fabrics will become semi-dry after washing. Well, it is better not to wring out things made of thin fabrics at this speed, because such a huge centrifugal force can break them.

The device has received washing efficiency class A. It should be noted that the user is provided with a large number of programs. There are also additional functions available here which are very useful. For example, the machine is able to prevent creasing of the laundry, as a result of which you can forget about the iron. By the way, if none of the modes suits you, then you can create your own program by setting the water temperature, washing time and spin speed.

The device is capable of boasting full protection against leaks. However, this model is unlikely to ever break down. Its creators, it seems, have thought of everything. They even housed a drum inside a tank made of stainless steel rather than plastic. However, this solution also has one drawback: the washing machine turned out to be very heavy, and therefore you will have to pant when carrying it.

Advantages

  • Huge capacity;
  • High quality induction motor;
  • Low noise level during washing;
  • There is a timer for delaying the start of washing;
  • Both the foam level and imbalance are controlled;
  • Full protection against leaks;
  • It is possible to create your own program;
  • A large number of programs and functions;
  • Nice design;
  • High rotation speed during spinning;

disadvantages

  • Dimensions and weight will not suit everyone;
  • Very high cost.

Electrolux EWW 51696 SWD

The Swedish giant is renowned for its quality washing machines. This is the model under the index EWW 51696 SWD. It is full size. This means that 60 cm here is not only the width, but also the depth. Such dimensions allowed the manufacturer to place a huge drum inside that can hold 9 kg of dry laundry. It seems that such a capacity will be enough for any family, no matter how many children live in it. There are only 10 wash programs here. However, oddly enough, this amount is quite enough. There are also additional functions here, the most interesting of which is the steam supply. The Swedish manufacturer did not forget about the prevention of creasing.

It should be noted that 80 thousand rubles. this washing machine is not worth it because of its large capacity and smart electronics. The high cost is due to the presence of a built-in drying here, the operation of which is based on the measurement of residual moisture. However, when using the appliance, remember that the maximum drying time is only for 6 kg of laundry. With more of it, the device will not cope with its task.

The creators of this model have abandoned the belt drive. And rightly so, the direct drive achieves a very long service life. And you don't need breakdowns in such an expensive washing machine, do you? The direct drive also helped to increase the drum speed to 1600 rpm. Subject to the presence of drying here, this parameter is more than enough.

This washing machine cannot be called particularly economical. It has received energy efficiency class A, and the water consumption per wash here reaches 57 liters. But on the other hand, there is protection against leaks, albeit partial (it is unlikely that it will ever come in handy). The timer for delaying the start of washing is not forgotten here either. Interestingly, the Electrolux EWW 51696 SWD is one of the few devices that is capable of not only washing, but also drying underwear, coping with it in just 1 hour.

Advantages

  • Huge capacity;
  • Minimum noise level;
  • Direct drive is used;
  • High rotation speed of the drum during spinning;
  • Built-in dryer capable of operating in three modes;
  • There is a timer for delaying the start of washing;
  • There is control over the level of foam and imbalance;

disadvantages

  • An economical device cannot be called;
  • Very high cost;
  • Long drying time in most modes;
  • Dimensions and weight not everyone will like;

Bosch WAN 24140

Another full-size washing machine in our ranking. It is distinguished from analogues by a rather low price – you can buy Bosch WAN 24140 for 38-40 thousand rubles. At the same time, the appliance has a good capacity – it can wash 8 kg of dry laundry at a time. There is no drying here, so you have to use only spinning. Unfortunately, it was on this operating mode that the manufacturer saved the most. The drum can rotate at a maximum speed of only 1200 rpm. Much narrower models can boast of exactly the same parameter. Perhaps the manufacturer decided to extend the life of the inverter motor used here, because they had to abandon the direct drive in order to reduce the cost.

Loading of linen here is carried out through a 30-cm hatch that opens 180 degrees. During washing, ActiveWater technology can be used. With its help, water consumption is noticeably reduced. Also, this technology has a positive effect on energy consumption, as evidenced by the corresponding A +++ class. As for the efficiency of washing, the appliance was awarded class A, which is quite acceptable at such a cost.

Otherwise, this is a typical mid-budget washing machine. She knows how to monitor foam levels and imbalances. The available features include everything you need, including anti-crease and super rinse. Well, in the loading tray there is a compartment for liquid powder, which is also good news.

Advantages

  • Large capacity;
  • The price tag is not astronomical;
  • Convenient management;
  • There is an imbalance and foam level control;
  • Full protection against water leaks;
  • Low power consumption;
  • Not very high water consumption;

LG F-10B8QD

The cheapest full-size washing machine in our ranking. In Russian retail, only 25 thousand rubles are asked for it. However, should it be considered truly full-sized? The fact is that the depth of the device is 55 cm, slightly less than the norm. But let's not bother ourselves with this, but consider this model in a little more detail.

Some buyers will appreciate the removable built-in cover used here. Others should appreciate the 7kg capacity. For washing such a quantity of laundry, approximately 45 liters of water are spent, which can be called a tolerable parameter. Most importantly, the machine complies with washing efficiency class A.

The device has a partial leakage protection. But other washing machines with a similar price tag can boast of this. And they often have a very large loading door, while here its diameter is only 30 cm. But it opens 180 degrees. If the space in the selected room allows it, then it will be possible to load the laundry without much difficulty.

This washing machine is by no means noisy. This is evidenced by independent measurements. Noise during washing does not exceed 52 dB, and only during spinning does it rise to a noticeable 72 dB. If you pay for electricity at a reduced rate at night, then you will appreciate the fact that you can postpone washing here. For washing, 13 programs and several additional functions are used here, among which are anti-crease and super rinse.

The weakest side of this model is spinning. It is carried out at a speed of 1000 rpm, which corresponds to the corresponding efficiency class B. But with energy consumption everything is in order here – the experts assigned the washing machine class A ++.

Advantages

  • Decent capacity;
  • Low cost;
  • Not very high noise level;
  • There is a timer for delaying the start of washing;
  • There is a control of imbalance and foam level;
  • Low power consumption;
  • There is a removable cover;
  • Partial protection against leaks is implemented;

disadvantages

  • Low drum rotation speed during spinning;
  • Poor child protection;
  • Sufficiently high water consumption;

Electrolux EWW 51696 SWD

Another washing machine from the Electrolux company in our rating. This model has dimensions of 60x60x85 cm. That is, it turned out to be as deep as possible, and therefore the high capacity is not surprising. The appliance is capable of washing 9 kg of laundry at a time. At the same time, the motor has enough power in order to spin such a mass up to a rotation speed of 1600 rpm. It is possible that this parameter was achieved due to the use of a direct drive. It should be noted that this model is capable of boasting a spin efficiency class A – this is a rarity for a washing machine, even for such an expensive one. And the product has the same washing efficiency and energy consumption classes. The appliance consumes 57 liters of water per wash. A lot, but with so much laundry in the drum, that's okay.

Of course, the main feature of this device is the built-in dryer. During its work, it focuses not only on the timer, but also on the residual moisture. However, the device differs quite strongly from a free-standing drying machine – it takes much more time, it cannot make things dry in just an hour and a half (if we are not talking about underwear). By the way, the modes are selected here by means of touch buttons, which you need to get used to. Their pressing can be blocked, thereby activating the childproof lock. Interestingly, only 10 programs are provided to the user. However, this is sufficient for most types of lingerie. Has a device and smart functionality. For example, it can provide steam and prevent creasing. There is also an opportunity to delay the start of washing.

Perhaps the Swedes have a wonderful washing machine. She should arrange for families with children who don't really have room to dry their clothes in the traditional way. The device has only one serious drawback – it is extremely high cost.

Advantages

  • Very large capacity;
  • There is a compartment for liquid powder;
  • Possibility of washing and drying underwear in 60 minutes;
  • There is a timer for delaying the start of washing;
  • Electronics monitors foam level and imbalance;
  • A large number of useful functions are available;
  • Partial protection against leaks is implemented;
  • The spin works at a very high rotation speed;

  • Many cannot afford it;
  • Not all powder is rinsed out of the hopper.

Bosch WVG 30463

One of the most expensive washing machines in our ranking. In Russia, a German creation can be sold for 90-95 thousand rubles. Should I buy it for that kind of money? It is difficult to answer this question. The fact is that the product, for some reason, has received a number of simplifications. For example, at 59 cm depth, it does not have the largest capacity. One feels that the motor should be able to rotate more than 7 kg of dry laundry. Also, someone can make claims about energy consumption – the washing machine has the corresponding class A. But the spinning is most disappointing. The drum rotates quickly – at speeds up to 1500 rpm. But at the same time, the product corresponds only to the spin efficiency class B. However, you should not worry about this, especially if a large amount of time is allocated for washing. The point is that the user can activate the drying function. However, there is one peculiarity here too. The appliance is able to cope with drying only if no more than 4 kg of laundry is loaded into the drum.

However, you cannot assume that the washing machine turned out to be completely bad. Otherwise, she would not be in this top. People love the look of the device. Also, the high build quality should please – for many, the device stands rooted to the spot, even during spinning. You can hardly expect any breakdowns from this device. And even if you accidentally arrange some kind of trouble, there is complete protection against leaks – you will not flood your neighbors. Well, 13 programs allow you to wash a wide variety of types of laundry. Additional features prove to be quite useful. Among them, you can find washing in a large amount of water – useful for especially dirty clothes. There is also the complete opposite – an economical wash. If at night you pay for electricity at a reduced rate, then the timer for delaying the start of washing will definitely come in handy. Among the advantages is a large loading hatch that opens 180 degrees.

In short, this is a very controversial washing machine. Oddly enough, in many online stores, she receives only positive ratings. This suggests that the shortcomings we have described are extremely insignificant – people simply do not notice them.

Advantages

  • High capacity;
  • The drum is supplemented by the SoftSurge system;
  • There is a timer for delaying the start of washing;
  • The diameter of the loading hatch reaches 32 cm;
  • A large number of programs and additional functions;
  • Foam level and imbalance are controlled;

Samsung WD80K5410OS

The South Korean company Samsung knows how to create washing machines with a memorable appearance. When designing a model called WD80K5410OS, the engineers decided to opt for a black loading door with tinted glass. This literally transformed the device, making it stand out from the competitors. Also, the manufacturer has endowed his creation with a special door, thanks to which the laundry is reloaded. Some people think this feature is unnecessary. But someone will not agree with this opinion, because it regularly turns out that you forgot to throw socks, panties or some kind of T-shirt into the drum.

Absolutely everything is capable of washing this device. Its drum holds 8 kg of dry laundry. Such a large weight is able to rotate here at speeds up to 1400 rpm. Some full-size competitors may provide higher drum speeds, but they also cost significantly more. You can buy Samsung WD80K5410OS for 70 thousand rubles. This is probably adequate money for a miracle of engineering.

The user can choose from 14 programs. Among them you can find a variety of modes, suitable for almost any tissue. Additional functions include super rinsing and soaking. Drum cleaning can be activated by pressing a special key combination.

If we continue talking about the distinctive features of the device, we cannot fail to note the support for AirWash technology – when washing is carried out using not only water, but also air. Also, the low noise level should please, when washing does not exceed 54 dB. Only during spinning is it able to increase to 73 dB. By the way, the experts endowed this creation with the spin efficiency class B. However, this is not the main drawback of the device. What is most surprising is the high water consumption, reaching 88 liters here. But after all, no one bothers to use economical washing and other modes where water consumption is reduced.

Despite the disadvantages here, we still recommend buying a washing machine. There is also a bubble washing system, and the ability to control from a smartphone, and all sorts of monitoring sensors, and the build quality of this model is close to ideal. Also, the built-in dryer, designed for 6 kg of laundry, cannot but please. In a word, the device definitely justifies its cost.

Advantages

  • Built-in drying (works exclusively on a timer);
  • Built-in ceramic heater;
  • A large number of programs and additional functions;
  • Both the foam level and imbalance are controlled;
  • There is protection against leaks;
  • Bubble washing system is applied;
  • Additional loading of linen is available;
  • Excellent capacity;

Another unusual looking washing machine in our ranking. Its 34-centimeter loading door has a very thin silver edging, the rest of it consists of black plastic, the same dark rubber and translucent glass. The top of the instrument contains the hopper, regulator, buttons and display. It should be noted that this is one of the narrowest washing machines among those endowed with a built-in drying – the depth of the product does not exceed 54 cm.At the same time, a full-fledged drying is used here – it works not only by a timer, but also by measuring the residual moisture. Partly due to the presence of drying, the device received the function of supplying steam – this helps in cleaning the entire structure of the fabric. Additional features also include fast wash, super rinse, direct injection and silent wash. In total, 16 programs are provided for the user's choice.

During its operation, the washing machine monitors the foam level and imbalance. If you have children, you can implement appropriate protection by blocking the keys. The washing result is expected to be quite decent – this is evidenced by the corresponding class A. The product also has the same energy consumption class. But there are questions about the spin. The drum rotates here at speeds up to 1400 rpm. It seems to be a large figure, but the experts awarded the device with the spin efficiency class B. But you need to understand that drying is present here, so spin is not so important. If the use of drying is not intended, then this appliance is capable of washing 9 kg of dry laundry at a time.

This model is definitely recommended for purchase. However, its production is over, so you will have to search for leftovers from the warehouses. Chances are high that you will not find this washing machine at all.

Advantages

  • Very large capacity;
  • Not the largest sizes;
  • The loading hatch has a large diameter;
  • A timer for delaying the start of washing is available;
  • Silent washing is possible;
  • A large number of programs and additional functions;
  • Protection against leaks is implemented;
  • There is a control of the level of foam and imbalance;

This appliance measures 60x56x82 cm. It belongs to the built-in type. This means that the product can be covered with a table top or something similar. The front panel of the device is supplemented with a special door. In a word, a visitor to the kitchen will not even understand what exactly is standing here.

The loading hatch of this model is made in the most simplified style. It has a 30-centimeter diameter, and the hatch opens 180 degrees. The laundry is loaded into a familiar drum. After that, the user must select one or another operating mode. A total of 15 programs are provided. Interesting functions include anti-crease, economical wash and night (low noise) mode. During its operation, the device controls both the imbalance and the foam level. If something ever happens, the device will definitely not flood the neighbors – there is full protection against leaks. However, this model is unlikely to fail. Something can happen only through the fault of the user – for example, because of the metal things left in his pocket.

The experts have given the appliance a washing efficiency class A. Even more pleasing is the energy consumption – the product has the corresponding class A +. Also, the washing machine received a spin efficiency class A. During this process, the drum begins to rotate at a speed of up to 1400 rpm. The noise level at this moment rises to quite acceptable 72 dB.

The depth of the device is not great, therefore the capacity is not a record. A maximum of 7 kg of dry laundry can be thrown into the drum. But this is only if you will not use a dryer. Yes, she is also present here! However, as much as possible, it is ready to dry only 4 kg of laundry. However, almost all washing machines with a built-in dryer have such a limitation.

Advantages

  • Good capacity;
  • There is a timer for delaying the start of washing;
  • A large number of additional functions;
  • There is a control of imbalance and foam level;
  • Full protection against leaks is implemented;
  • Low power consumption;
  • There is a built-in drying;

Another washing machine ideal for kitchen installations. She looks, so to speak, sloppy. But you need to understand that the front panel here will be regularly closed with a door. The depth of this model is 58 cm. This parameter should have allowed the engineers to place a huge drum inside. But for some reason, the capacity of this device does not exceed 6 kg. It seems that the belt-driven motor is not designed to handle more laundry. I am glad that its power is enough to rotate the drum at 1400 rpm. As a result, the washing machine has been assigned a spin efficiency class A. It has the same washing efficiency class.

During operation, the electronics tries to monitor the foam level and imbalance. Water is consumed here quite sparingly – about 52 liters are used for one wash at maximum load. At the end of the process, you can activate drying. However, this can only be done if you have loaded no more than 3 kg of laundry.

This model does not consume the largest amount of electricity, corresponding to the A + class. Full protection against leaks should also please, because the flooding of the kitchen is a real horror. By the way, if you read the reviews, then some buyers write about the occurrence of breakdowns. If you need to buy a washing machine 'for centuries', it is better to look towards the instances discussed above. If we talk about operating modes, then the device is sharpened for a variety of types of fabrics. Additional functions include prevention of creasing, quick washing and washing of children's clothes (the duration and intensity of rinsing increase, as a result of which traces of powder are eliminated even from the depths of the fabric). The start of the wash can be delayed here by setting it at night.

Advantages

  • A large number of functions;
  • The device belongs to the built-in type;
  • Well realized spinning;
  • There is a control of imbalance and foam level;
  • Full protection against leaks is implemented;
  • There is a timer for delaying the start of washing;

Candy CBWD 8514TWH

One of the most inexpensive built-in washing machines, for which they ask for 45 thousand rubles in Russian retail. At the same time, it is not full-sized – the depth here is reduced to 55 cm. Nevertheless, this did not prevent the manufacturer from achieving a capacity of 8 kg of dry linen. It is possible that it is because of this that the drum and the hatch are shifted to the upper part – there is very little space left for the display. This device weighs 64 kg. Therefore, it will require two people to install it, but at least they will not strain too much (the washing machines discussed above are often much heavier).

The loading hatch used here is 35 cm in diameter. The laundry is loaded into a familiar drum located inside a plastic tub. Then you need to choose one of 15 programs. Additionally, you can use some useful functions – for example, make washing more economical. If you use any standard mode, then the water consumption will be 115 liters, which is a criminal lot. By the way, washing can be delayed using a special timer by scheduling it for the night. The washing machine makes almost no noise during its operation. But during spinning, the noise level rises to 75 dB. This is not surprising, since the drum starts to rotate at 1400 rpm (unless you have specially reduced this parameter). As a result, the experts endowed the device with the spin efficiency class A. The product also received the same energy consumption and washing efficiency classes.

The device allows you to control yourself from your smartphone. But this feature will rarely be used. Built-in drying seems much more useful. Be careful to use it only if the drum contains no more than 5 kg of laundry.

Another washing machine created by a Swedish company that is the world's largest manufacturer of household appliances. This model is built-in, and its depth is 54 cm. You can wash 7 kg of dry laundry at a time. The cost of the device is 57 thousand rubles, so you can not be surprised at the lack of drying. But the device has low power consumption, as evidenced by the corresponding class A ++.

You can start washing at any time – there is a postponement of this business until the night time. There are 14 wash programs. And if in some standard mode 46 liters of water are consumed, then with a quick wash, the consumption is reduced. There is also an anti-crease function, which will appeal to everyone who does not like to iron their clothes. The noise level during washing does not exceed 52 dB, which is quite acceptable. Spinning here is realized at a speed of 1400 rpm, as a result of which the experts awarded the machine with the corresponding efficiency class A. During the activation of the spinning, the noise level can rise to 73 dB – also nothing out of the ordinary.

It is also important that the product received an inverter motor and a direct drive. This means that there are no unnecessary moving parts between the drum and the motor that could fail in a couple of years. It also means that the motor can rotate the drum in the opposite direction – it is due to this that creasing prevention and some other operating modes are implemented.

Advantages

  • Embedding is possible;

A unique washing machine was presented by LG Electronics. This model immediately attracts attention with its two drums. One of them seems ordinary – it is located at the top of the device. But in fact, this structural element is different from their own kind. The fact is that the drum is closed by a hatch into which the dashboard is built. It is inscribed in a circle, and the number of buttons is minimized here.

The main feature of this washing machine is the second drum located at the bottom (for gas stoves, there is a dish compartment in this place). The manufacturer himself calls this structural element a mini-drum. Indeed, it is designed only for 2 kg of dry laundry. This drum can be used to wash socks, underpants and other light clothing – this process will not take long.

In total, the appliance is designed for washing 12 kg of laundry. The manufacturer managed to achieve this indicator by increasing the size. The height remains the same, but the depth here reaches 67 cm – this is due to the fact that the body turned out to be 'convex'. The device copes with its task well – this is indicated by the classes of energy consumption, spin efficiency and washing efficiency A. By the way, spin is carried out at a speed of up to 1600 rpm.

The cost LG LSWD100 reaches 300 thousand rubles. Perhaps this is the only serious drawback of the washing machine. Otherwise, it has all the technologies available now. It is also very quiet – the noise level during washing does not exceed 52 dB. Perhaps you can find fault with the weight reaching 92 kg. Even a pair of tall men will have difficulty transporting this device.

Only close up is it noticeable that all the corners are rounded, nevertheless, this does not leave the feeling that the hatch is multifaceted. It is also a very large specimen, the depth of which is 64 cm. It is thanks to this that the device is able to wash 8 kg of dry laundry at a time. It is strange that inside such a washing machine there was no place for drying. Instead, the manufacturer tried to reduce power consumption, as a result of which the device received the corresponding A +++ class.

The diameter of the hatch used here reaches 34 cm. It opens all 180 degrees. The design of the device is completely leak-proof. However, the likelihood of any breakdown is extremely small. Here, even the tank is used not plastic, but steel – this can easily serve for several decades. By the way, the drum here has lighting – now you will definitely not forget to take a handkerchief or some other small thing.

The washing machine offers a wide variety of programs. Additional features include anti-crease, super rinse and soak. The start of the wash can be postponed overnight. This is useful for those who pay for electricity at a reduced rate after midnight. Well, during the wash, electronics are actively working, which monitors the level of foam and imbalance. Washing efficiency class A means excellent results for the user. At the same time, the device consumes not so much water – about 45 liters. The machine also received a spin efficiency class A. In this mode, the drum begins to rotate at a speed of up to 1500 rpm.

In a word, this washing machine has no particular drawbacks. And in some ways it is unique – only it offers drum lighting, and not every such device has the ability to re-hang the hatch. Confused only by the price – to pay 160 thousand rubles. not every Russian will dare.

The design of this washing machine was great. A two-tone instrument panel awaits the user, under which there is an elegant loading door. The depth of the device has been increased to 63 cm. Inside there is a drum rotating inside a familiar plastic tank. A maximum of 10 kg of dry laundry can be washed at a time. There is also a built-in drying, but its activation is possible only if you have placed no more than 6 kg of laundry in the drum. Drying during its operation is guided not only by the timer, but also by the residual moisture.

Such large washing machines rarely make a noticeable noise. Here, too, the noise level does not exceed 51 dB. Moreover, it does not rise too much during spinning – a special measuring device records only 66 dB! In this regard, the delay in the start of washing will definitely be used by people who pay for electricity at a reduced rate at night – the washing machine will not wake them up. Interestingly, there are only 10 wash programs here. However, even this amount is enough – you can wash a variety of fabrics here, including wool and silk. There are also additional options here – for example, anti-crease. There is also a steam supply, which helps moisture to break into the depths of the fabric.

The washing result is evidenced by efficiency class A. The machine also has the same spin efficiency class. This is not surprising, because in this mode the drum rotates at a speed of up to 1600 rpm. The appliance also received an energy class A. Not the highest rating from the experts, but it was influenced by the drying operation, which slightly increases the energy consumption.

In fact, this model is not capable of surprising something, if you forget about the design. But she copes with her task perfectly, and many buyers need just that. It is a pity that such a washing machine is very expensive – about 140 thousand rubles.

Advantages

  • Huge capacity;
  • There is a timer for delaying the start of washing;
  • A large number of additional functions;
  • Both the foam level and imbalance are controlled;
  • There is protection against water leaks;
  • Low noise level even during spinning;
  • Good spin efficiency;
  • Memorable design;
  • Built-in dryer that works with a lot of laundry;

disadvantages

  • Water consumption reaches 75 liters.

One of the most inexpensive washing machines among those endowed with a unique design. This model seems to have come to us from the future. Its body is made of silver-colored metal, and the loading door is located in an elegant recess. The detergent drawer has a beveled corner for a unique look too. Well, there is nothing to say about the dashboard – it can even scare you with its shape and arrangement of buttons. It should be noted that there are very few buttons here, and therefore an elderly person is unlikely to understand the controls. But we understand that some grandmother is not able to spend almost 100 thousand rubles on a washing machine.

The dimensions of this model are 60x60x85 cm. Therefore, it will not bulge forward against the background of a nearby gas or electric stove. The loading door used here has a 31 cm diameter. Through it, the laundry is placed in a drum rotating inside a tank made of, among other things, stainless steel. It spins very quietly – the noise level during washing does not exceed 46 dB. Only during spinning does the noise level rise to the traditional 75 dB. But this is not surprising, because the drum rotation speed here can reach 1800 rpm. With this parameter, it is not surprising that experts have endowed the device with the spin efficiency class A. Oddly enough, the machine has an A ++ energy class. But initially it seems that to achieve this speed, the motor must require huge amounts of electricity.

The device is fully leakproof. It is capable of washing maximum 8 kg of dry laundry, which, with such dimensions, can be considered the optimal parameter. You can only regret the lack of drying.

This model has one feature. She knows how to open the hatch door on her own. Many people are unaware of how useful this feature is. Even if you do not hear the signal about the end of the wash, the door will open on its own, due to which the drying process will begin, even if it will be less effective than hanging clothes on a clothesline.

Advantages

  • Low noise level during washing;
  • Large capacity;
  • Unusual design;
  • Good washing efficiency;
  • High energy consumption class;
  • High rotation speed of the drum during spinning;
  • A large number of programs and additional functions;
  • There is a timer for delaying the start of washing;
  • A stainless steel tank is used;
  • Implemented automatic opening of the hatch door;

disadvantages

  • High water consumption;
  • Many cannot afford it.

A rare visitor to your kitchen will guess that there is not a refrigerator of the 60s of the last century, but a modern washing machine. Perhaps this is the most interesting representative of our rating. It has dimensions of 60x69x89 cm. The depth has increased due to the use of a rather massive door, on the back of which there was even space for two shelves on which boxes with detergents can be placed. Behind this door is a traditional faceplate consisting of a 30 cm loading door, display, tray and several buttons. Electronic control is used here, but it is not difficult to master it.

This device has a capacity of 7 kg. Experts have endowed the appliance with washing efficiency class A. This means that the machine copes with the main task almost perfectly. At the same time, she spends no more than 47 liters of water, unless a specific mode is selected. The spinning is carried out here at a speed of 1400 rpm. For such a large washing machine, this is not enough, so it received a spin efficiency class B. Well, the A ++ energy efficiency class indicates that the numbers on electricity bills will not increase much.

There are 15 wash programs here. Specific functions include anti-crease, super rinse and quick wash. There is also a timer for delaying the start of washing. It remains to add that the noise level during washing does not exceed 59 dB. Only during spinning does it rise to 78 dB, which, however, is still an acceptable result.

  • Low water consumption.
  • The door is supplemented with shelves for detergents;
  • Protection against leaks is implemented;
  • Both imbalance and foam level are controlled;
