    Washing machines with a large capacity

    What is a washing machine with a large capacity?

    Whether your family’s never-ending laundry pile has you wanting to throw the towel in, or you just prefer extra room for your favourite outfits to spin, washing machines with large capacities are great. We class any model with a 10kg capacity or above as large, and we’ve always got plenty in-stock for you to choose from.

    What are the benefits of large capacity washers?

    Clear the laundry basket in one go

    Because larger drums can hold more items of clothing at once, you’ll be able to cut down on the number of washes that you have to do. So, you can spend less time on the laundry, and more time doing what you love.

    Save money on the monthly bills

    As you won’t have to do as many cycles to empty the laundry basket, you’ll use a lot less energy. Some larger models have efficient eco programmes too, so you’re bound to see a saving when the bills come rolling in.

    No more cramming in clothes

    You’ll never be left squashing everything in again, as there’s a lot more room in the drum. This also helps clothes get a more thorough clean, as the detergent and water will have more space to move about.

    Keeps your machine in better condition for longer

    If you overload your machine, it can often lead to long-term damage. That’s because it affects the balance of the drum. More space means you don’t have to stuff it full, so it’ll stay in tip-top shape for longer.
