With 11 programmes to choose from, there’s one for every type of fabric and stain. There’s Cottons and Synthetics as you’d expect, then you’ve got more specialist programmes like the Baby & Toddler Wash. This uses high temperatures to make sure every last bit of dirt is removed and also adds in a few extra rinses to get rid of any trace of detergent. It’s exactly what you need to protect sensitive skin. And it’s not just for babies, it’s perfect for anyone with allergies or eczema.
There are some handy add-ons you can tag onto your wash too. The Time Saver function lets you reduce the length of your wash by more than 30%, really handy if you’ve just started a cycle and realised you need it ready sooner than you planned.
To help you plan your laundry around your day, there’s a Delay Timer that lets you put your wash off for 3, 6 or 9 hours. So you can set it in a morning, and have your clean clothes waiting for you when you get in from work.
At 45cm deep, the WMB51221W is what’s known as a slim depth machine, so it’s great if your kitchen is of the narrow variety or you keep your washing machine in a small utility room.
