Before you start shopping…

Not all washing machines are made equal (or fit your home). Here are some shopping tips to help you select the right kind of washer.

  • Short on space? Pick front loaders instead of top ones, as they can be stacked with a dryer on top.

  • Besides, most front loaders are energy and water efficient. Top-load machines can use up to 3-times as much water as front loads. As a result, it also uses more energy to heat up the water, rendering a top-load less power efficient as well.

  • On the other hand, top loaders are favoured for faster washing times and have a bigger capacity, due to its design. Plus, they can be opened mid-wash for users to add in more clothes.

  • All our washers listed here have a capacity of 7 - 8 kg, which is the most popular capacity type and is sufficient for a 4-person household.

Loading Type: Top-Load

This washing machine might be less expensive than its other counterparts, but it doesn’t skimp on functionality! Besides being a branded model, the LG WFT7400 does the basics well – think Turbo Drums that mimic handwashing for a gentler wash, a self-cleaning Tub Clean function and despite being a top-load model - 3 ticks for water efficiency (yay for cheaper water bills!). Buyers love its relatively compact size, making it great for tight corners.

What Users Say:

Pros:

  • Uses less water (8.9L)
  • Fast spin speeds of up to 1400 rpm
  • Compact size that’s smaller than most alternatives
  • Ample preset washing options – for quick cleaning, jeans, wool, extra cleaning, etc.

Loading Type: Front-Load

Here’s one for the clean freaks – when it comes to getting fresh, dirt-free clothes, Fisher & Paykel’s QuickSmart series is not here to play. Many homeowners gush over the washing machine’s thorough yet gentle (and silent) cleaning – thanks to the appliance’s SmartDrive technology, which uses a built-in computer to sense the contents of the drum and change its tumble and spin actions accordingly.

Beyond the fancy stuff, users have also highlighted its incredibly fast spin speed, which ensures thoroughly clean clothes with less dampness.

What Users Say

Pros:

  • A variety of options for type of wash, time and temperature
  • Water and energy saving – built-in water heater for hot washes reduces energy consumption
  • Quiet operation for most types of clothes. Will be slightly noisier on a faster spin, however.
  • Can pause cycle to add in more laundry – and resume as usual

Cons:

  • Cycle times drag longer than expected, as the machine’s self-balancing smart function may take time to readjust and resume washing in between cycles.
  • Has a tendency to leak laundry water out during washing.
