Washing machines are one of those household appliances you don’t give a single thought until they break down and you need a new one. The latter happened to me last week and if you belong to that exclusive cycle of people who leave their washing to the very last minute a broken washing machine can turn into a real nightmare. You may think getting a new one was easy but thanks to all these technological advances the question whether your new washing goddess should have an integrated drying function or not is just one of the many features that can give your head a real spin.

To make your search for a new kitchen workhorse a bit easier, we’ve put together a guide explaining the main types and features currently on the market.

 

What types of washers are available?

Top loaders

While you are hunting for a new washer, you may consider venturing off the beaten track and opt for an unconventional top loader instead. As the name suggests, top-loading washing machines are operated from the top – ideal for those who find bending down to load clothes into the lower opening difficult. Only about two-thirds of the width of their front-loading counterparts, top loaders are ideal for those who are short of space. Another benefit is that items can be added at any point of the washing cycle.

Since they only make up a small part of the market, top loaders are usually less expensive but offer a smaller load capacity (5 kg or 6 kg) than front loaders. Whirlpool’s American Style Washing Machine is one of the few models with a load capacity of 10 kg.

Front loaders

Small and compact front-loading washing machines are still the number one choice for many UK households. They fit neatly under the worktop and are designed to be freestanding or integrated. Front loaders offer more load capacity and tend to be more energy and water efficient than top- loading models.

Most machines boast a vast number of settings to deliver maximum convenience and efficiency. Some manufacturers are also rolling out ‘smart’ washers with Wi-Fi settings and automatic monitoring systems. Samsung’s WiFi ecobubble™ Washing Machine, for instance, enables you to control the entire washing cycle with your smartphone. Laundry day may never be the same again.

Compact washer

Are you struggling for space in your kitchen or studio apartment? Consider buying a small-sized compact washer that blends a sleek design with practicality. Zanussi’s ZWC1301 compact washer, for example, has a 3 kg capacity and 15 different washing programmes. If you need more loading capacity then the Beko WM5100W might be right for you.

Some compact washers are exceptionally lightweight and portable. When it comes to price, portability and compact design, the Twin Tub Washer from Good Ideas outsmarts its competitors. This type of washer is easy to move around and even comes with a spin dryer to remove excess water.

Washer-dryerThese all-in-one machines take care of the entire washing and drying cycle without compromising on quality. Washer-dryers come equipped with the same range of functions as full-sized front loaders and are ideal for those who can’t afford to buy a separate washing machine and tumble dryer. Add the time and space saved and it’s hard to resist the temptation of a combined appliance.

However a significant drawback, besides the sometimes hefty price tag, is the fact that drying is the most energy intensive part of the laundry process. Therefore, choosing an energy-efficient model can make a big difference to your bills. Miele’s WT2780 Washer Dryer or Siemens WD14H520GB are among the most sustainable performers on the market.

 

What should I consider when buying a washing machine?

Capacity: Consider the volume of washing you need to do. Washing machines stretch from 5 kg to impressive 12 kg models, depending on the type of washer you go for. Larger drums usually mean a greater capacity and are ideal for larger families or households. If you live by yourself or run a small household a 5 kg or 6 kg-capacity machine might just be enough.

Spin speed: Ranging from 1000 to 1600 RPM (revolutions per minute), spin speed determines the degree of water extraction during the water cycle. Higher spin speeds will remove more water, resulting in shorter drying times. However, unlike cars you don’t necessarily want to go for the fastest model out there. Don’t forget that faster spin speeds may damage delicate fabrics. Choose a washing machine with variable spin control to ensure that your favourite jumper won’t lose its soft and fluffy touch.

Efficiency: Using a washing machine makes up a great deal of your monthly energy bill. If you’re buying a new one, make sure your dream model is not only good looking but also economical. Like most kitchen appliances washing machines carry the EU energy label that tells you how much energy and water it is likely to consume. Washing machines are rated from A to A+++, with the latter being the most energy efficient. Bosch’s Maxx and Exxcel series come with an A+++ rating and ActiveWater technology to reduce wastage.

Features: Washing day is much more than just loading your laundry pile into the drum. From adjusting temperature and spin speed for individual programmes to quick wash settings and automatic pressure switches – special features can make a big difference in how efficient your washing machine will run. Some washing machines like the Hoover DYN11146P8CH or the AEG Lavamat L87680FL include a countdown display and delay function to manage your time more effectively.

Smart wash: ‘Smart’ has been a popular tech buzzword in recent years and washing machines are no exception. High-end models come equipped with the latest innovations to improve wash performance and save on energy consumption. LG’s 6 Motion DD White Washing Machine might be the perfect choice if you don’t want to miss out on the latest technology. It boasts full touch control, a Smart Diagnosis feature and TrueSteam technology. You can even download and install new washing programmes.

    Learn several foreign languages

    It’s nice to come to Italy and say “Buongiorno!” passing waiter. And then catch the admiring glances of those with whom you came. Is not it? But it has long been known that learning foreign languages contributes to the development of a good memory. It’s also very interesting! So why not take advantage of this?

    These are effective methods for training memory. But there is also something interesting. Memory is inextricably linked to proper and good brain function. This means that stimulating its work allows you to improve memory:

    It has been proven that regular sports activities increase brain activity and improve memory;
    No to gray days! It is well remembered that that does not fit into the framework of everyday life. Try to change the environment, add bright colors, go to the store on a new path … It is not necessary to radically change your life. Just add something new to your daily routine, and your brain will work with renewed vigor;
    Add new habits. For example, tidying up your desk in the morning is a great start to a productive day!
    Meditation, relaxation make the brain switch, relax. This means that he will perform new tasks with renewed vigor;
    Music has a magical effect on our brain. It has been proven that people who practice music have better memory and analytical skills;
    Teamwork. Brainstorms have proven their effectiveness more than once. And now scientists have proven that the decisions made in the team were more accurate and faster. They attribute this to the fact that information is easier to perceive and assimilate during communication. Therefore, solve problems together!
    The brain assimilates and sorts information while we sleep. So don’t ignore this process.
    Conclusion

    This is just a small part of the effective techniques for developing memory. But simple reading will not work. Apply these techniques. Remember, only 50% of the result depends on the doctor, and the remaining 50% on the patient. Without working on yourself, you will never reach the top.
    Figure 1. Sample structure of coursework
    The above structure can only serve as a guide. When giving the assignment to write a term paper, the teacher usually shows a sample of drawing up a plan, explains which sections should be contained in it.
    How to write the introduction of a term paper correctly

    The introduction is what is always read. If the main part of the commission (and even the leader, if he is not very conscientious) can skim through, then the first pages of the text will certainly receive close attention. As the title implies, this section serves to introduce readers to the course of the matter, to briefly describe the research. The introduction consists of typical parts:
    Relevance of the topic. You need to explain why you chose this particular topic, why it should be considered. The arguments presented depend significantly on the direction of the research – it can be either the novelty of the topic (“in connection with active changes in this area”), or its controversial nature (when one large scientific school expresses one opinion, and another – another), or practical significance. For historical topics, it is necessary to establish a connection with the present, to trace what the events of the past are affecting now, to draw parallels.
    Objective. A goal is what you want to achieve as a result of your research. For undergraduate coursework, the goal may be to “learn” something, or “systematize knowledge” about something. In senior years, the work is more practical in nature, and the goals change – “to formulate recommendations for improvement”, “to develop a project”, “to identify ways to improve efficiency.”
    Work tasks are a kind of “steps” to achieve the goal. If the goal of the work is one, then there are several tasks. Their number should correspond to the number of paragraphs in the work plan. Each item in the table of contents is a separate task.
    Dated using verbs – “analyze”, “consider”, “characterize”, “describe”, “classify”, “reveal” and others.

    GO!!!
    This phrase was said by the first cosmonaut on Earth – Yuri Gagarin. (Yuri Gagarin)
    He was the first astronaut on Earth. He was Russian! …
    Now Russia is becoming a strong country, gas pipelines, a vaccine against COVID-19, an army.
    Is this very reminiscent of the communist Soviet Union?
    How do you think?
    Now we have total control in our country. I am interested in the opinion of foreigners.
