Integrated

Perfect if you’re tight on space, an integrated washing machine fits underneath your worktop and behind a cupboard. All our models are the ideal width for a 60cm unit. Almost all models require a furniture door and a plinth to cover the bottom section. If you’re buying a replacement, you’ll already have these in place, you may just need to reposition the hinges to suit your new machine.

Capacity

A model with a 7-8kg capacity is perfect for a medium household, while models with a 6kg or less capacity are ideal for smaller families. With a bigger drum, your clothes have more room to move around in, meaning a more thorough wash. And freestanding models range all the way up to 13kgs, so it might be worth considering one if you have a larger family. Drum capacity is measured in kilograms, with 1kg roughly equal to one full outfit or a bath towel.

Wash Programmes

If you need your clothes cleaning in a hurry, a quick wash cycle is perfect, as this gives your clothes a refresh in under 30 minutes. Allergy washes take care of you and your family by eliminating allergens and washing away detergent that can irritate your skin. Cotton, wool and delicate cycles use the perfect settings to take care of specific fabrics. While anti-stain and intensive cycles use higher temperatures to tackle stubborn stains. And thanks to sports programmes, mud and grass are removed effortlessly.

Energy Rating

Most of our range is rated at least an A+ for energy efficiency, which means it will only cost around £30 a year to run. An A+++ rated model costs around £15 and helps you do your bit for the environment too.
