Generous on space the WDAL8640P can wash the equivalent of 40 T-shirts, a handful of large bath towels or even all the sheets on your double bed inside its 8kg drum. For drying, your clothes will need a little more space to move about, so it’ll hold 6kg of clothes – that’s about 18 T-shirts or 3 large towels. Plenty of room for a 4 person home.
Rated A for efficiency you’ll only spend £27.38 a year to run full loads, though if you tend to run smaller loads more often, it’ll automatically save you money. Say you’re washing 10 T-shirts, the Auto Half Load feature will reduce your water and electricity use to suit. It’ll measure each load you run, so you don’t need to do anything special to make these savings.
It’s remarkable how quiet it is while washing such big loads. Thanks to the Super Silent brushless motor and superior insulation, it absorbs a lot of the wash noise. It’s particularly good if your living room and kitchen are open plan, as it’s not going to drown out the TV.
The Anti Stain feature is brilliant for grass-stained football kits, white tops after spag bol night and the dirty collars on your shirts. It maintains the temperature of your wash, so your detergent works at stains for longer. It’s excellent at breaking down stubborn marks and it means you won’t need to spend time or money pre-treating your clothes.
Equally useful is the Anti Allergy cycle. It adds extra rinses to your wash, so if you’ve used a little too much detergent or you want to flush out pollen and irritating pet hair, the extra water makes sure your clothes and bed sheets are pristine. It’s a great way to protect those with sensitive skin or allergies.
