When it comes to washing machines – size matters, depending on your requirements based on load capacity. Drum capacity varies from 7kg-13kg so it is important to have an idea about which size drum you need. If you have a small to medium sized household we recommend between 7-9kg. If you have a larger family we would suggest between 10-13kg.
It is important also to not overfill your machine, just because there’s space inside the drum that does not mean you should fill it. In fact, it is better to leave space to allow the clothes to move freely around the drum ensuring that the detergent is mixed in with the garments inside.
Spin speed is the next consideration after capacity. Spin speed is measures in rpm. The higher the spin speed the more moisture that is removed from the garments inside. Spin speeds vary between 1200rpm and 1600rpm.
There’s also a number of program options when it comes to washing machines. Which additional programs you use depends on your lifestyle – look out for quick wash options as well as intense cycles for soiled sports wear.
