10 Best Washing Machines, Good Helper!

Getting in a spin about which washing machine to buy? Let’s face it, washing is one of those dull, never ending tasks that even a good washing machine can’t brighten up. Nevertheless, a good machine makes a bundle of difference on so many levels – durability, design, additional features, plus the all-important bling factor when it comes to home (and yes, even kitchen) appliances in the 21st century – does it look cool? You see, like a fast car, when you have choices to make, a washing machine is not just a washing machine after all. Here’s our ten best list to help you sort the silks from the rags.

LG WM3900HWA 4.5-Cubic-Foot Front-Load Washing Machine

Great value for money, this LG model is one of the most reliable machines on the market, generally requiring a lot less servicing in its first few years than other brands. A generous 4.5-cubic-foot capacity means it comfortably handles most heavy loads, with the optional addition of a foot level pedestal washer so you can complete two washes at once. Easy to use, with a whole host of features including LG’s Turbo Wash feature that uses a jet spray to significantly reduce wash times.  

Electrolux EFLS627UIW 4.4-Cubic-Foot Front-Load Washing Machine

Up there with the best of the bunch, the Elextrolux is easier to use than the LG model, with just 9 cycles (where other models have as many as 20). The conventional and convenient dispenser draw is useful for pod users, but its standout features are SmartBoost that pre-mixes detergent and fabric softener with water for even distribution, and StainSoak that selects the perfect cycle and detergent mix for you, depending on which stain you need to remove. With a 15-minute fast wash setting, it can put its foot down when necessary too. 

Samsung WF42H5000AW 4.2-Cubic-Foot Front-Load Washing Machine

A great lower-priced option; what the Samsung model sacrifices in terms of additional extras (no super-fast cycles or stain-removing options here), it more than makes up for in functionality and reliability. Reviews have been positive across the board, pointing out that while it may not be the fastest machine around, it gets the job done every time. Features 4.2-cubic-foot capacity and a cool white stainless steel finish.

LG WM9000HVA 5.2-Cubic-Foot Smart Wi-Fi Enabled Front-Load Washer

This machine stands as deep and wide as the 5.2-cubic-foot capacity would indicate. Its size makes it ideal for large families, or if you need to handle a lot of bedding and sheets. Beyond that, it also boasts impressive performance, with 14 wash cycles (including speed, sanitary and allergen), and five temperature settings. You can pair this model with a nifty app to monitor progress and control certain settings. It’s fast and quiet and features LG’s TurboWash technology. 

LG WT7800CW 5.5-Cubic-Foot Top-Load Washing Machine

Top-loaders are generally better than their front-loading relatives in accommodating larger loads (5.5-cubic foot capacity ranks with the larger front loaders) as well as enabling you to add items mid wash, and – of course – dump everything straight from the basket into the machine. The LG WT7800CW is the best one you can buy. While Top-Loaders can lag in terms of spin time, LG’s TurboWash setting will save you up to 20 minutes. An advanced ColdWash setting also assures the same results that you’d get from a warm wash.

Samsung WV60M9900AW 6.0-Cubic-Foot FlexWash Washing Machine

This Samsung model is the best large-load model on the market, with 6.0-cubic-foot capacity for some heavy duty washing. And if 5.8-cubic feet in the front loading drum isn’t enough, there’s also 1.1 cubic feet’s worth at the top, and you can use different temperature settings on both. Hot water reaches up to 153 Fahrenheit courtesy of an internal water heater, and Wi-Fi sends notifications to your phone when the whole lot is done. Stunning, with an easy to use touch display screen.

LG WT7300CW 5.0-Cubic-Foot Top-Load Washing Machine

A top loader that tops the list if you’re operating on a watered down budget. Like many LG models, it has a spec that is up there with many front loading models, including 14 cycles and a TurboWash feature that is great for removing stains. Wi Fi connectivity enables you to check how things are getting on while you’re away and – once you’re back – a cool glass lid lets you peep down into its generous 5.0 cubic foot tank. 

BLACK+DECKER BPWM09W Portable Washing Machine

Not portable like a smart speaker perhaps, but very useful for those renting from a landlord who won’t fork out on white goods. Singles will also appreciate the 0.9-cubic-foot capacity, making it energy efficient. Without the requirement of any special installation (it can even be adapted for your kitchen sink), this affordable little cleaner has enough extras to suit those on-the-move and travelling light, without making a lot of noise about it.

Samsung WF45K6500AW 4.5-Cubic-Foot AddWash Front-Load Washer

This luxurious model from Samsung looks beautiful and is probably the best equipped model on the market right now. a generous 4.5-cubic-foot capacity, a Super Speed setting that takes just half an hour to finish a cycle and an amazing ‘mini-door’ that enables you to add items after the job has begun. Link it to your smartphone and you’ll be alerted when the rinse cycle begins. With 14 cleaning cycles and a host of other USPs, we love the black version; also available in white.

Bosch WAT28400UC 300 Series Washing Machine

A smaller machine for smaller households, The Bosch 300 justifies its price with a 1,400 RPM spin speed and a maximum 15-pound load. 15 different cycle options include an allergen-busting hot-water cycle. There’s a super quiet motor and a SpeedPerfect mode for faster cycle times. 2.2-cubic foot capacity is not huge, but you get a lot packed into this smart little machine.
