Types of washing machine

  • Front Loading
  • The front-load washing machine is the one with a horizontal axis to tumble clothes inside the drum and door at the front. The horizontal dum on such a machine relies partly on gravity for the rolling. Due to this motion, there are some serious benefits of such a washing machine listed below:

    • Energy Efficient
    • Eco- friendly
    • Save money in the long run
    • Good for heavy loads/ greater laundry spaces
    • Thorough cleaning of clothes
    • Good for small and compact spaces
  • Portable Washing Machines
  • Portable washing machines are designed to be moved easily within the room or between the rooms as in the kitchen or bathroom. Portable washing machines are ideal for small houses and apartments. However, they should be used only when you don’t have space for a full-sized washing machine. While buying a portable washing machine, you must keep in mind that it is portable to you; otherwise, you might be struggling to shift your machine.

    All the portable washing machines come with a faucet adapter which allows you to connect it sink in the bathroom.

  • Top Loading
  • Top-loading washing machines are cheap to buy and cheap to repair. They use a very simple control system to choose the setting you want. Therefore, it is preferable due to its easy operation without any hindrance. However, when you put too much laundry inside it, such a machine may not be as efficient as it should be.

    Top loading washing machine is cheap and market leader. On the other hand, front-loading washing machines are sleek and more efficient. Top loaders have a vertical agitator to move the cloth in a circular motion. Due to the wear and tear effect of the agitator, washing machines also come with an impeller- a low rotating hub in place of the agitator.

  • Washer-Dryer Combo
  • If one of your top priorities is space, then the washer-dryer combo washing machines are the best pick for you. There are various combinations of washer dryers, from steam cleaning to different spin cycles, that will fit your individual need for sure.

    Such combo models are already popular in Asia and Europe for their all-in-one functionality. If you have a small space, living in an apartment, this model is suitable for you. Since these models allow you to both clean and dry at the same time, you won’t be bothered to switch the laundry. They are energy efficient. The washing portion of these machines works much like front-loading washing machines, uses less water, and has a horizontal agitator.

Useful Wash Programs

  • Extra Silent Mode
  • A lot of washing machines offer this mode these days. It may also be indicated as the night mode in various washing machines. It is particularly useful if you are washing your clothes at night. Due to very less or negligible sound, you can wash your clothes even in the middle of the night.

  • Time Delay Mode
  • You can choose the time, you want your washing machine to start off the cycle and clean your clothes. You can put your clothes in the drum, add detergent, and set the time between 1-24 hours when you want your machine to work, and when you come back it’s done. This way you can avoid the noise and keep your wet clothes longer in the machine.

  • Spin Speeds
  • Spin speed is really important for cleaning. The higher spin of the drum reduces the drying time. The speed ranges from 1200-1600 rpm ( revolutions per minute). In case, you don’t have a dryer or enough outdoor space to dry your laundry, you can run for a bit longer, the extra spin will help you remove the extra water from the clothes. Hence, you can dry your clothes quickly.

  • Intelligent Dosing
  • Intelligent dosing is the feature that enables smart dosing in your machine. With this feature, your machine automatically manages detergent and fabric softener. All you have to do is keep your detergent filled and it will dispense the right volume at the right time and save you money.

  • Delicates and Silk Programs
  • It is a very common washing machine mistake, we may shrink and ruin our delicate clothes with wear and tears in our machine. Therefore, we needed some special mode of washing for the delicate silk clothes.

    Thanks to this mode, we can clean the clothes recommended to be hand washed in the machine with proper safety and ease without ruining the expensive fiber. They often claim to wash more gently than the hands but you have to make sure you use detergent suitable for these types of clothes.

  • Quick Wash Programs
  • Sometimes, we are in a rush and we really need to wash our clothes as fast as possible. Well, the quick wash mode is especially suitable for such rush hours. However, you have to make sure, you didn’t a lot of weight in the washer because this may slow the quick mode.

  • Sportswear Mode
  • This mode is designed to remove the sweat marks and odors from the microfiber sportswear. The clothes are washed for a longer time at lower temperatures to achieve this goal and to make sure not to damage the fabric. It is particularly useful during summer and for the sportsman to remove the stains, odors, and sweat marks from the clothes.

    Top Load vs Front Load

    Choosing between one of the top and front load washing machines is a really tricky part so, we are going to use these questionnaires to compare them.

  • Which one is easier to use?
  • Top loading washing machines are normally easier to use. You don’t have to bend over every time you want to load or unload clothes in your washing machine. Especially for older customer and the ones with joint issues, top-loading washing machines are always a better option.

    Top loading washing machines also have the option of adding clothes in the middle of the cycle or even right just after starting the cycle. Additionally, top-loading washing machines distribute the detergent and fabric softener evenly.

  • Which cleans faster?
  • Top-loading washers are of two types: one with an agitator and one without an agitator. The one with an agitator creates the motion by shaking and forcing the water through the machine, making the machine vibrate. Thus the top-loading washing machines clean quickly as compared to the front-loading washing machine.

  • Which one cleans Better?
  • Although the top-loading washer is comforting to your back and joints, it can be rough on your clothes. Occasionally, you may see wear and tear effects in your clothes. On the contrary, front-loading washers are much more gentle with your clothes and wash cleanly.

  • Which is more expensive?
  • Usually, front-loading washing machines are more expensive than the top-loading washers but the price is well justified. Front-loaders give a better quality clean and they are more energy and water efficient in comparison.

  • Which one consumes less water?
  • Front-loaders again win here. They are more water-efficient as well as energy-efficient. Such washers are also very eco-friendly.

  • Which one Extract water faster?
  • During the final spinning cycles, front-loaders generally spin 35% faster than the top loaders. This means that the front loaders will remove more water from the cloth during the last minutes. So, when you put your clothes in the dryer, your clothes will be dry far more quickly.
