Top 5 Washing Machines

Independently reviewed. Perfectly priced.

This is an outstanding family washing machine. Getting through lots of laundry at once is so easy thanks to the generous 8kg drum. You’ll fit the equivalent of 40 T-shirts in per wash – you can even combine two smaller loads into one, saving the cost of an entire wash.

You’ll save up to 50% on energy compared to standard models, which is extremely impressive. It costs just £23.40 a year to run too, which is fantastic for a washer than can do so much. It works out to a saving of nearly £15 a year on energy. That’s over £150 during the life of the machine.

The 14 minute Quick Wash is amazing if you’re in a hurry. It’s designed for small loads of 5 or 6 items, though if you have a load twice that size, you’re also getting a 39 minute Daily Wash. It’s just the job for washing a handful of T-shirts and a couple of pairs of jeans.

In short, you get more done and it actually costs you less to do it.

Exceptionally cheap to run, number 3 will cost you just £21.48 a yearRated A+++,  this is a great choice if saving money on your wash is important to you. You’re also getting the best cost effectiveness with this model, thanks to the 8kg drum. You’ll be able to wash up to 40 T-shirts at once, while spending less than you would on other smaller models.

It comes with the brilliant 3D Aqua Spa feature. By spraying your clothes from above, they soak for longer and your detergent has more time to work away at stains. You’ll get a more thorough wash than you get in a standard machine, so it’s brilliant for really grubby garments.

Don’t forget the SuperQuick 15' Wash. It’s a feature you’ll find on all of these Bosch models, but considering it gets a small load of 5 or 6 T-shirts clean in just 15 minutes, it’s invaluable - excellent for saving time on your laundry.

There's not a lot that this model doesn't have. To begin with, it comes with a huge 10kg drum that'll clean 50 T-shirts in one go, and it has a super fast spin speed of 1600 rpm. It even comes with an innovative anti-stain function that tackles 20 of the most common stains around. It does this by using the perfect temperature for tackling tough marks.

It's also superbly efficient, thanks to a market leading A+++ energy rating. This is not in least thanks to an eco-wash that'll help knock the pennies and pounds off your electricity bills. You'll benefit from the Woolmark Platinum Care graded wool programme too, as it'll look after your delicate jumpers with a gentle clean – saving you the hassle of hand-washing them.

As well as all these fancy features, it gets back to basics with a handy child lock, a delay timer and a 30 minute quick wash for when you have a few items to clean. And it even has a steam programme that takes just 20 minutes and is ideal if you work in a smoky environment like the city, as it'll quickly spruce up your clothing to remove odours.

This 8kg Samsung has been consistently rated highly by our customers. Thanks to its Ecobubble technology you can get great results from every wash setting. Bubbles penetrate the load thoroughly, giving you a fantastic clean without the need for high temperatures.

With a clever diamond drum to prevent bobbling it cares for your clothes from start to finish. With all these great features it’s hardly surprising that it has made it into our top 5!
