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.

If you’re looking for a washing machine that’ll look after clothes and pocket, then this Whirlpool should be high up on your list.

With a 6th Sense Colours cycle, you can rest assured that your favourite dress for a night on the town or that bright Summer top will keep its vibrancy, wash after wash. It works by combining a lower wash temperature and unique Wave Motion drum rotation to keep clothes protected and looking their best.

There are plenty of wash cycles to choose from, including an energy and money saving eco wash, a dedicated wool cycle and delicate wash which is perfect for underwear and ties. You’ve got a brilliantly speedy 15 minute quick wash as well which can get a few items ready to hang out in the time it takes to get up and showered in the morning.

And when it comes to energy efficiency, you can hardly beat this model. It comes with an A+++ energy efficiency rating – meaning that with every wash, whatever the size, you’ll be using just the right amount of water and electricity. So when it comes to bill day, you won’t be getting any nasty surprises.

This model’s perfect if you want to save some serious energy. Thanks to the ecobubble™ technology inside, you’ll get the same results from a 15°C wash as you would from a 40°C wash. The bubbles penetrate deep into your clothes to get a great clean every time – without having to raise the temperature.

What's fantastic is the 5 year warranty that you're getting with this model. It just shows you just how fantastic quality this machine really is.

You’re getting loads of functions like Stain Away, which soaks your clothes for 20 minutes and gets rid of anything from chocolate to ketchup. Then there’s the quick wash, which will have a small load done in around 15 minutes!

What’s really great about this model is the Smart Check technology. You can download the app to your phone and it’ll tell you what the code on the screen means, so you can identify errors without having to call an engineer out!
