Advice and inspiration

Things to consider when buying a washing machine or washer dryer

  • ##


    Washing machines are now available with larger capacities than ever before. They range from a standard 5 kg up to a huge 12 kg, allowing you to wash more in one go. 1 kg is roughly equivalent to one outfit – a pair of trousers, a top, underwear and socks.

  • ##

    Spin speed

    Spin speeds vary from 1000 to 1600 rpm (revolutions per minute). Faster spin speeds leave clothes drier after a wash and reduces drying time.

  • ##

    Noise level

    Noise levels range from 47 dB(A) to 67 dB(A). An operating noise under 50 dB(A) is similar to the hum of a refrigerator.

  • ##


    All of our machines are rated from A to A+++ depending on electricity consumption and water usage.

  • ##

    Quick wash

    This feature allows you to wash a small load quickly. Some machines will wash a lightly soiled reduced load I as little as 14 minutes.

  • ##

    Latest technology

    Some machines offer advanced features such as direct drive/inverter motors for quieter performance and prolonged life, and steam programmes which remove all traces of allergens and make ironing easier.

Things to consider when buying a tumble dryer

  • ##


    Tumble dryers are available in a range of capacities from 3 kg to 9 kg. 1 kg is roughly equivalent to one outfit – a pair of trousers, a top, underwear and socks.

  • ##


    Vented dryers vent warm, air through a plastic hose (sometimes supplied) to prevent condensation. A permanent vent can be fitted in an outside wall or you can hang the hose out of a window.

  • ##


    Condenser dryers remove moist air from the drum and cool it inside the machine. The water is collected in a tank which you need to empty when it’s full. Condenser dryers can be placed anywhere in your home as they do not need a vent.

  • ##

    Heat pump

    Dryers with heat pump technology are the most energy efficient. They use a lower drying temperature, saving energy and maximising drying performance. They are gentle on fabrics and really quiet.

  • ##

    Latest technology

    Some machines now offer advanced features such as sensor drying, which stops the cycle when clothes are dry. Sensor drying saves time and reduces energy consumption.

  • ##


    All of our machines are rated from C to the most energy efficent A+++ depending on electricity consumption.
