Washing clothes can be an art– especially with delicate fabrics, but with all the available washing machines out in the market today, it’s always helpful to have a go-to buying guide to make sure you’re getting only the best washing machine for your Adelaide home.

Our Guide to Buying the Best Washing Machine for your Adelaide Home

Load Size

Among the first things you have to look out for when looking for the best washing machine for your Adelaide home is the washing machine’s load size. Washing machines at Adelaide Appliance Gallery have a load capacity that ranges from 7 kg up to 9 kg.

To help you understand how large your capacity should be you should consider how much laundry you do per week and how often. For example, you may begin to consider that you have to wash two pairs of pants, and two pairs of tops for each day of the week then, a washing machine with a 7kg capacity can be a good choice.

Wash Cycles

Modern washing machines can be completely automatic and smart with different kinds of wash cycles. For people in a hurry, washing machines have the “Quick” option. For heavier washing, like washing blankets, there’s a “Blanket” option for optimally washing these kinds of articles. A washing machine with more options for its wash cycles means it’s more flexible when handling the different kinds of items that you have to wash.

Energy and Water Efficiency

The #tenyearchallenge has brought to attention some of the debilitating effects of our use of resources over the years and it’s about time we do our part. Finding a washing machine that’s both energy and water-efficient can be a step towards making the change to help our environment.

The Australian government has established the Water Efficiency Labelling and Standards (WELS)  as a way to measure the water efficiency of washing machines and the Energy Efficiency rating to measure energy used. Both of these standards use stars as a way to measure efficiency and as what the government said, the more stars the better.

Bonus Features

Getting a washing machine with bonus features has never been this easy, just ask our experts at Adelaide Appliance Gallery and they can definitely direct you to some of the best-selling bonus features that our customers are usually looking for.

Product researchers found out that the common household uses more soap than they should. This means that to wash off all that soap, you must use more water and more energy. But, because of the smart guys at Siemens, they were able to create a washing machine that can take care of your soap levels even during washing.

Worrying about too much soap in your laundry will be a thing of the past with the Siemens WM16Y892AU Front Load Washing Machine. This cool feature is made possible by the i-Dos technology that makes it possible to control the level of detergent, softener, or even the mix of two detergents.
