In this case, it is already necessary to pay attention to how noisy the washing machine will be. In this collection we will tell you about the quietest models – it is possible that you will not hear some of them even during spinning.

NEFF W6440X0

Rating: 4.9

NEFF W6440X0

One of the most expensive and quiet washing machines among those that can be found in Russian retail chains. For this model they ask for more than 100 thousand rubles! Moreover, it is built-in. Therefore, its manufacturer understood that his creation would stand somewhere in the kitchen. The washing machine received a door, which in itself remarkably absorbs noise. It also uses a very quiet and durable motor. As a result, the noise level most of the time does not exceed 47 dB. Only when spinning at maximum speed does it increase to 64 dB. Agree, these are adequate numbers. If you are not in the same room with the washing machine, then you are unlikely to pay attention to it. Especially if it is standing on a concrete floor and the length of each leg is correctly adjusted.

The dimensions of the device are 60x56x82 cm. That is, the washing machine cannot be called narrow. But on the other hand, it has an excellent capacity – the manufacturer claims 8 kg of dry linen.

Modern front loading washing machines are strictly electronic controls. This model is no exception to the rule. With the help of a special regulator, the washing mode is selected. And the choice is huge! Additional settings are driven in by pressing the touch keys. This way, for example, you can change the speed of rotation of the drum during spinning. The more interesting button, though, seems to be the one that activates the drum lighting. Yes, there is a backlight inside this device! Like in a refrigerator or an expensive dishwasher! Whether it is useful is up to you, it all depends on how lit your kitchen is.

This machine weighs 75 kg. This means that it will take a couple of people to install it. The body of the device is painted in the usual white color. It should be noted that the electronics of the device is doing its best to save your electricity. This is evidenced by the corresponding class A +++, which the specialists awarded the car. As for water consumption, no more than 49 liters are consumed per washing process. On the way out, you will get clean laundry, the product is difficult to cope with only the most serious stains – this is affected by the lack of the 'steam treatment' function.

As we said, the machine offers many washing modes. In particular, special programs help to clean delicate fabrics. Pre-wash is also available here, which is necessary for heavily soiled items. Well, pressing a separate button will order the system to rotate the drum in such a way that creasing of clothes and linen is minimal. You can also postpone washing here – this is important for those people whose counter calculates electricity at night at a reduced rate. The postponement is possible at least for 24 hours.

As far as spinning is concerned, it can be carried out at a drum rotation speed of up to 1400 rpm. After such laundry, you need to dry for only a couple of hours. In a word, it is precisely because of the excellent spinning rate that the washing machine is so expensive. However, it seems to us that many readers will still prefer to buy something cheaper. And we understand them, the NEFF W6440X0 does not have some kind of killer function, for which we would like to shout: 'Take my money!'. And the design of the device is quite ordinary.

Advantages

  • Huge capacity;
  • Full protection against leaks;
  • Highest class of energy consumption;
  • Extra high speed spin possible;
  • There is protection from children;
  • A large number of washing programs;
  • Not very high water consumption;
  • There is a timer for delaying the start of washing;
  • Drum lighting implemented;
  • Low noise level, especially during washing.

disadvantages

  • Very high cost.

AEG L 8FEC68 SR

Rating: 4.8

AEG L 8FEC68 SR

One of the most unusual and quiet washing machines in this rating. Yes, the device turned out to be expensive – they ask for it from 85 to 120 thousand rubles. But on the other hand, you will get a device with a stylish and memorable design. Pay attention to the dashboard – half is silver while the other half is black. The usual drum divides these halves, with the help of which the washing mode is selected.

This washing machine is full size. This means that the depth of the appliance is 57 cm. And it does not belong to the built-in type, as the example discussed above, therefore there is no door here. Therefore, it is not the best choice for installation in the kitchen.

In total, the user is offered 10 washing programs. All popular modes are available here. In particular, there is a prewash, which is useful for heavily soiled laundry. Also not forgotten is the quick wash needed for socks and briefs. Of course, silk and six can also be washed here. Separately, of course. But the most interesting is the supply of steam. With this function, you can embed powder molecules deep into the tissue, thereby removing almost any stain.

In total, the drum holds 8 kg of dry laundry. This is a great result, and many families do not need more. Surprisingly, not a very large amount of electricity is used to rotate this weight. This is evidenced not only by the numbers stated in the product passport, but also by the A +++ energy class. But with water here everything is more complicated. In some modes, 55 liters are consumed. It's a lot. With regard to washing and spinning, in both cases the appliance received efficiency class A.

This washing machine has some kind of crazy motor built into it. During spinning, it is able to spin the drum up to 1600 rpm. It is not recommended to wring out some thin fabrics at this speed – centrifugal force can break them. But for some jeans, this speed is the very thing, after such a few hours will be enough for them to completely dry.

It should be noted that the spin is not as quiet as possible. The washing machine at this moment may begin to emit noise at a level of 75 dB. Fortunately, most of the time is spent washing and rinsing, and at such times the noise level does not exceed 47 dB.

It remains to be noted that there is a timer for delaying the start of washing. The maximum it allows you to set 20 hours, which is quite enough.

Advantages

  • Large capacity;
  • Great dashboard design;
  • Low power consumption;
  • During spinning, the drum can rotate at a very high speed;
  • Full protection against water leaks;
  • Implemented child protection;
  • A large number of washing programs;
  • Steam and direct injection possible;
  • The timer for delaying the start of washing has not been forgotten;
  • Quiet work.

disadvantages

  • Very high cost;
  • Increased water consumption;
  • The noise level increases significantly during spinning.

Samsung WW90M74LNOA

Rating: 4.7

Samsung WW90M74LNOA

Samsung has been paying a lot of attention to large-sized household appliances lately. It was she who recently released such washing machines that a few years ago it was impossible even to imagine. For example, Samsung WW90M74LNOA surprises with the presence of an additional door in the loading door. At any time you can stop washing, open this door a little, and throw in, say, forgotten socks or panties. Conveniently! Previously, this was only possible in top-loading washing machines, which are less convenient.

As mentioned above, this model is full size. This means that 60 cm is not only the width, but also the depth of the device. The choice of the wash program here is carried out using the usual silver drum. Additional functions are activated by pressing the touch keys located to the right of the controller. There are also symbolic displays on which certain parameters are displayed.

As you may have noticed, this instance is a little deeper than the models discussed above. In this regard, it should not be surprising that the capacity of the Samsung washing machine has increased to 9 kg of dry laundry. Also, there was a place for lighting inside the drum, which in some cases may well help in unloading clean things. And the manufacturer also introduced a steam generator here. Therefore, you can even count on removing old stains, because with the help of steam, the washing powder will penetrate into the fabric. I must say that this is one of the most affordable washing machines with such a function – in Russian stores they ask 77 thousand rubles for it.

The device turned out to be not only large, but also heavy. Its 80 kg weight can be installed with the help of several people. Most of the weight is carried by the electric motor, which can spin the drum up to 1400 rpm. The attentive reader of the rating has already realized that this is not a record. However, practice shows that higher values ​​are often unnecessary, since their selection can lead to damage to the laundry. However, the spin efficiency class B is still scary – for that kind of money I would like to get more. The washing machine is also capable of boasting leakage protection. But it should be noted that it is only partial. However, it is unlikely that something will happen to such a device in the future, so you should not worry.

Like the examples discussed above, Samsung WW90M74LNOA has A +++ energy consumption class. As for the water consumption, it is increased. In some modes, the machine can consume up to 54 liters of water. However, do not forget that this figure is correct for full workload. It is clear that other washing machines can use less water, but they also hold much less laundry.

In total, this product provides 14 washing programs. Here you can wash wool, as well as delicate items, even a separate mode for black items is available. Of course, the stain removal program, in which the aforementioned steam supply takes place, is not forgotten.

So how noisy is this washing machine? The manufacturer claims 51 dB. Not a record, but for this size it is quite acceptable. And it is important that during spinning the noise level rises only up to 62 dB. The speed of rotation of the drum, which does not reach the prohibitive value, affects here.

Advantages

  • Drum lighting implemented;
  • Additional loading of linen is available;
  • A very large number of programs;
  • Steam supply is possible;
  • Low noise level during washing and spinning;
  • There is protection from children;
  • Low power consumption;
  • Huge capacity;
  • Smartphone control is available.

disadvantages

  • The price tag will not suit everyone;
  • Only partial protection against leaks;
  • The spin is not perfect;
  • Increased water consumption.

Bosch WIW 28540

Rating: 4.6

Bosch WIW 28540

This is a fairly rare model that is not found in every store. The German manufacturer has not released the largest number of copies of this washing machine. It is possible that he was right. The fact is that this model is built-in, and such 'washing machines' are not in great demand. The high cost can also confuse the buyer.

It can be seen here that the Germans were mainly working to reduce the noise level. Alas, for this they sacrificed some other characteristics of the device. For example, it has a capacity of 6 kg of dry laundry. This is an adequate figure for a narrow washing machine. But the depth of the Bosch WIW 28540 is 58 cm! So this is a full-size model. However, let's not scold the manufacturer. The decrease in the parameter was due to the fact that drying elements had to be placed inside. Yes, this device is capable of not only washing clothes, but also at least partially drying them. However, for normal drying operation, you need to load no more than three kilograms of laundry. If you load more, you will have to dry things in the traditional way.

What else can the owner of such a washing machine complain about? First, electricity consumption. The fact is that this representative of our rating has an A + energy class. Secondly, the water consumption per wash can reach 52 liters. Quite a significant value, especially with such a relatively small capacity.

However, this model cannot consist only of shortcomings? Of course not. Otherwise, she would not be in this collection. The buyer will definitely be pleased with the spin efficiency class A. And this when the drum rotates at a speed of no more than 1400 rpm! When washing T-shirts and underwear, you can do without activating drying – the clothes will be almost completely dry anyway.

Full protection against leaks cannot but rejoice. Even if someday something goes wrong, you are unlikely to flood your neighbors. Finally, one cannot fail to note the large number of programs. There is also a mode in which the machine tries to remove stains, and a mode for washing sportswear, and, of course, a program for washing children's clothes (when it is selected, a more thorough rinsing occurs). Another important function of this model is the timer for delaying the start of washing, which allows you to set any time. This is important if a person pays for electricity at a reduced rate at night.

Advantages

  • There is a built-in dryer;
  • Good spin efficiency;
  • Full protection against leaks;
  • Implemented child protection;
  • Direct injection available;
  • A large number of programs;
  • The timer for delaying the start of washing has not been forgotten;
  • The device turned out to be very quiet.

disadvantages

  • Not very large capacity;
  • Water consumption seems to be high;
  • In the first months there is a smell of rubber;
  • The washing machine was unreliable.

Eurosoba 1100 Sprint

Rating: 4.5

Eurosoba 1100 Sprint

The appearance of this washing machine may seem quite strange. And the capacity at the level of only 4 kg of dry linen is a laughing matter for the chickens. But everything changes after you realize that this washing machine is designed to be installed under the sink. Therefore, the manufacturer had to reduce the height of the device, from which all the disadvantages follow.

The width and depth of this 'washing machine' is 46 cm. It seems that such a baby should fit in any bathroom. As you can see, there were no frills here. A small loading hatch with white plastic is waiting for you. By the way, it opens to all 180 degrees, if the surrounding space allows it. The control is electronic, but even an elderly person is able to deal with it. The symbol display shows the time that the wash will take. Alas, there is no delay in starting the wash. This is an unpleasant moment. But not for everyone – at night the reduced electricity tariff is valid only in several regions of Russia, and even in them, not all residents are concerned about buying the appropriate meters.

I must say that this is definitely one of the quietest washing machines in our ranking. During washing and rinsing, the noise level is only 40 dB. And only when the spin is activated, it rises to a decent 63 dB. But the washing machine will definitely be in the bathroom, so you are unlikely to hear it even at the moment when the laundry starts to rotate at a speed of 1100 rpm.

Yes, the size reduction has been reflected in the drum speed. It is not for nothing that the experts endowed this device with a spin efficiency class B. Any underwear will turn out to be semi-dry, but jeans and other dense fabric will have to be dried on a rope for a rather long time. There is no built-in drying here, as you might guess. And this at a cost of a very decent 55 thousand rubles! But the device turned out to be light – its weight is 50.5 kg. Two men will lift such a washing machine to the fifth floor without any problem without a lift. However, you will forget about this advantage of this model immediately after its installation.

Such a small washing machine cannot consume any large amounts of electricity. This is confirmed by the corresponding A ++ class. Even more will please the water consumption, not exceeding 36 liters. As for the protective properties, here you can block the keys so that children do not inadvertently turn on this device. There is also protection against water leaks, albeit only partial. Interestingly, a stainless steel tank is used inside. This is an unexpected choice of the manufacturer, because now even the most expensive washing machines are equipped with a plastic tank. Well, this is further evidence of the reliability of the Eurosoba 1100 Sprint.

Advantages

  • Good option for installation under the sink;
  • Low noise level during washing;
  • The user is provided with 14 programs;
  • There is protection from children;
  • Low water consumption;
  • Sufficiently high class of energy consumption.

disadvantages

  • Low rotation speed of the drum during spinning;
  • Not very large capacity;
  • Still, not everyone can afford it;
  • Unpretentious design.

LG F-2J6NM1W

Rating: 4.4

LG F-2J6NM1W

Another rather rare but quiet specimen in our rating. Unlike many of the other models reviewed, this is a narrow washing machine. This means that its depth is only 45 cm. As for the width and height, they are standard – this is definitely not a model for installation under the sink.

Despite its miniature dimensions, this machine can be used to wash up to six kilograms of dry laundry at a time. It uses a standard electronic control panel that even an elderly person can deal with. Interestingly, the device can be controlled even from a smartphone. However, in most cases, the corresponding application will only be used to receive notifications that the wash is finished.

Inside this washing machine is a direct drive motor. This means that he and the drum are one. The absence of a belt and other additional moving parts gives hope for a long service life. LG Electronics itself provides a 10-year warranty on this motor! The direct drive also contributes to a greater variety of programs, because the system can set the most different types of drum rotation. And it is definitely the best choice for those people looking for a quiet washing machine. Here, the noise level reaches 45 dB only in rare moments. Of course, this only applies to washing and rinsing. During spinning, the noise level can rise up to 56 dB. Which, however, is also not an exorbitant value.

Unfortunately, this is far from the most ideal washing machine. No, the number of programs will definitely suit any user. But spinning here corresponds only to efficiency class B. Nothing else was expected at 1200 rpm. However, narrow washing machines are rarely capable of much more, even if they are directly driven. Also confusing is the energy consumption, which corresponds here to class A. The only thing that doesn’t scare you is the water consumption, which with such dimensions simply could not be any large.

The product has received protection from children. Also, the washing machine should not be expected to leak. There is also a setting for the end of washing – such a timer will appeal to those who have electricity meters during the day and at night at different rates.

Advantages

  • Stylish appearance;
  • Not bad capacity for this depth;
  • Control from a smartphone is possible;
  • Low noise level during washing and spinning;
  • Implemented child protection;
  • You can not be afraid of leaks;
  • A large number of programs;
  • It is possible to set the end time of washing;
  • The cost is not very high.

disadvantages

  • Not the best spin;
  • Energy consumption could be lower.

Conclusion

This is a list of the quietest washing machines currently sold in Russian stores. Note that even these models cannot run silently. No, most of the time they really behave as quietly as possible – you can only hear the flapping underwear. But you can't argue with the laws of physics; during the spin cycle, the motor starts to behave noticeably noisier. But in any case, the washing machines discussed here will not make you scared, they certainly will not wake up your child or your significant other.
