Ranging from as little as £150 to as much as £1,629, washing machines can vary hugely in quality, durability and performance. To help you get the most for your money no matter what your budget, we’ve selected the best washing machines for 2018 that will leave your clothes sparkling clean.
- Whirlpool FSCR10432
With a 10kg load capacity, £550 price tag, an energy rating that’s reportedly 60% better than A+++ and incredibly quiet spin cycle, the Whirlpool FSCR10432 is hard to beat. The large load capacity makes it the perfect choice for families while the extensive choice of programmes – 18 to be precise – ensures there’s a cycle to suit you no matter what your laundry needs.
- Hisense WFH8014
Coming in at just £250, the Hisense WFH8014 is a fantastic option for anyone looking for a reliable, hard working washing machine on a budget. The appliance has an energy rating of A+++, making it kind on the environment and on your bank balance. Able to handle loads up to 8kg and with over 15 programmes to choose from, it’ll make a great addition to your home.
- Hotpoint Ultima S-Line
Although the Hotpoint Ultima S-Line is more expensive than the Hisense with a price tag of around £400, the machine can handle a lot more of your dirty laundry with a maximum capacity of 10kg. This large drum allows you to wash large loads of dirty clothes and even tackle big items like dog beds and winter duvets. An efficiency rating of A+++ means your long term running costs will be minimal.
- Sharp ES-GFD814QW3
The main benefit of this Sharp washing machine, which retails for around £400, is that it’s incredibly quiet. If your appliance is in your kitchen/dinner, this could be a real bonus. Although the controls can be confusing – there are 22 options for stain removal alone – once you master the LCD display panel you’ll be able to get your clothes squeaky clean, no matter how dirty they are. Like the other machines on our list, the Sharp ES-GFD814QW3 has an A+++ energy rating.
- Samsung Ecobubble
If money is no issue, this high tech, low impact offering from Samsung is a great option. Coming in at around £1,400, it’s certainly not for the budget conscious, however if you can afford it, you’ll find your clothes are cleaner than ever. One of the biggest differences between this machine and the others on our list is that it has no detergent drawer. Instead you simply fill up the internal dispenser and the machine will release the right amount of liquid into the drum. What’s more, the Samsung Ecobubble can be controlled remotely via your Wi-Fi enabled device. This allows you to stick the washing machine on when you’re on your way home from work so your clothes are ready to dry when you walk through the door.
