Haier HW80-B14CIN

General photos As the first product of this buying guide, we want to advise you on the purchase of a washing machine capable of doing its job very well, without necessarily having a negative impact on energy consumption. Her name is Haier HW80-B14CIN, and therefore represents an excellent deal for those who live alone or for a couple. The load capacity is 8 kilograms, which is why it can wash several items of clothing at the same time. It boasts a very powerful motor, connected directly to the basket, to offer unrivaled durability in any circumstance. In addition to this, it also has the steam option, which allows you to remove any stain from your clothes effectively and efficiently.


Hisense WFGE8014V

The review of the best washing machines of this historical moment continues with a model that we feel we can consider as the most compact and practical, in fact this washing machine is equipped with a door that can open a full 180° and facilitate loading operations, with a diameter of 34cm to access the 8kg load basket. We are talking about the Hisense WFGE8014V, which is to say an excellent compromise between performance and compact size. Furthermore, this product boasts a drum equipped with draggers with a modified shape which maximize washing performance, also reducing the number of holes present inside, so as to create a real flow on the clothes and optimize washing results, as well as reducing detergent consumption. There is also a large LED touch display that allows you to access all settings clearly. The SterilTube function is excellent, which allows the basket to be sterilized by removing germs and bacteria.


Candy Smart CS4

We could not leave Candy out of this list , the Italian brand that with its products has managed to simplify the lives of many, and we have chosen the CS4 model to best represent it. This washing machine has a system of programs that combine speed and savings without sacrificing washing effectiveness, with cycles capable of dedicating up to 59 minutes to washing clothes. The "delayed start" function with which it is possible to set the start of the program up to a maximum of 24h is very convenient. It is also possible to connect the washing machine through the Smart Touch proximity connectivity technology, which will allow you to enrich the Candy Smart CS4 system with new additional functions, and even provide support in solving problems directly from your smartphone.


LG Smart AI DD

If you are looking for a washing machine that allows you the greatest number of possible washing combinations, the LG Smart AI DD is the one for you . With over 20,000 ways to wash your laundry, this washing machine is made for those with special needs. The 9 kg basket connected directly to the Direct Drive Inverter motor helps reduce noise and vibrations. Artificial intelligence allows you to choose the perfect washing mode based on your laundry, starting from the type of fabric and even allowing you to choose the movements to be performed, through a large and clear display with all the available information. The LG Smart Ai DD washing machine is compatible with SmarThinQ technology, and therefore a simple Wi-Fi connection is enough to connect it with the other smart devices in the house, and receive commands via voice assistant.


Hoover HW 410AMC

As the last product of this guide we want to tell you about a washing machine that combines effectiveness and efficiency, in particular the Hoover HW 410AMC , which is positioned in the medium-low range of the market and, as specified above, guarantees top-level performance, supported by smart features. Equipped with a drum capable of holding up to 10 kg of laundry, this washing machine is able to update itself daily, thus expanding the washing functions day after day, as well as receiving continuous updates on the status of running programs through the connection with the Hoover Wizard app. Furthermore, the manufacturer guarantees this product for 10 years, and among its characteristics we also find a reduction in vibrations and noise during the washing and spinning phase.


How to choose the washing machine

To purchase a washing machine in the best possible way, you need to be able to recognize which of the main features available is the one that is considered the most important, and therefore capable of influencing the 'purchase. Obviously, these are always characteristics that differ slightly from one model to another, but so do your own needs, which also include the economic value, because, as often happens, to have a top-of-the-range product, it is necessary to arrive at important figures. Basically, the characteristics to look for are:

Dimensions Load Capacity The energy class Safety Noise Revolutions per minute Programs


It might seem trivial but dimensions are one of the most important factors for the choice of such an appliance, since you don't always have a dedicated room as a laundry room and therefore you have to place the washing machine in other rooms. Normally washing machines vary in size based on the width of the loading drum which involves an increase in overall size, but very often it also depends on the type of opening, whether it is frontal (the most common) or from above, capable of considerably reduce spaces.

Load capacity

As mentioned before, this factor also partially determines the dimensions. Usually, the smallest washing machines start with a basket weighing just 3.5 kg, but these are solutions designed for those who live alone or with a much smaller amount of dirty laundry than a family of 4 can generate, which will require at least 9kg versions. There are also models capable of exceeding a load of 15kg, but these are options which, due to their size and cost, are found in places that are not exactly ordinary, such as perhaps professional or community laundries.

The load capacity, therefore, is closely related to the size of the basket, which therefore represents a very important aspect. As we have been able to ascertain, the greater the load, the greater the washing machine's ability to wash the laundry. Generally, a 5 kg washing machine is strictly recommended for couples, while 12 kg for a family and 8 kg for four people. However, pay attention to the maintenance of this component, in fact it is very important to carry out a series of periodic checks, such as the gaskets and the mold that could form in the basket. It is therefore necessary to use a sponge to clean the gaskets and a liquid soap with a vacuum wash at 40 degrees to disinfect the drum.

The energy class

Obviously this is among the most important features, in fact, saving on the initial purchase does not always mean making a bargain, especially when the first bills arrive. So always pay attention to choose products that are around or at least the energy class A +++ because they are optimized to reduce energy consumption to a minimum. Our advice is therefore to always check the Class, remembering that it moves on a scale where A+++ is the maximum while G is the minimum, not recommended if you are buying new products.

How can you save further? There are currently some washing machines that have an inverter motor, which basically represents a completely digital motor, without brushes. This type of product is less noisy than the competition and saves more electricity, but on the other hand it is necessary to pay a few hundred euros more. In short, a small initial investment, should you decide to do so, to save on electricity bills.

After that, it is necessary to analyze the average consumption of a washing machine. According to estimates, a washing machine used by 3 people in a year (about 250 times) is 220kw, in other words about 40 euros. For this reason, choosing a washing machine with a better energy class allows you to save, and not just a little on bills.


Another fundamental point in choosing a washing machine is attention to safety both for children and adults. The basket lock is a function that is now present in almost every device, but there are still some models on the market that are not even equipped with anti-opening systems for situations in which they are switched off, and we strongly advise against those models.


Certainly we all have the memory of grandmother's or mother's washing machine which made an incredible noise when it was spinning, arriving due to the vibrations, to not being able to have anything placed on it above. Forget these bad thoughts, today washing machines have improved enormously in this respect, certainly a minimum of noise is generated, but thanks to the use of special internal technologies the vibrations have been significantly reduced. In fact, there are models that are able to reach just 70dB in the spin phase, so we advise you to take this factor into consideration when purchasing.

Revolutions per minute

Spin, that function necessary for each wash and which involves the greatest problems in choosing. Obviously, to calculate the effectiveness of a cycle, in addition to the engine power, it is necessary to know the maximum speed that the device is able to reach, which is expressed in revolutions per minute. The higher this value is, the better the results obtained in terms of drying quality of the laundry, but it also involves a possible increase in noise. In some models it is possible to set a maximum number of revolutions per minute to be carried out during the spin cycle, but the minimum we would like to recommend is at least 800 g/m.


We conclude this small guide on the essential factors for buying a washing machine with programs. One might naively think that a limited number of them are needed to carry out the normal washing phases, but this is not quite the case. Many washing machines include in their programming many cycles for special fabrics, for specific types of garments and many that differ in the time needed to complete them. With the arrival of innovative Smart technologies and digital washing machines, it was then possible to start programming the various types of washing via smartphone, so as to no longer have a slew of programs that are not used.

The our advice is always to buy products with a simple display, which is able to indicate all the selectable programs and the various functions in a simple way to understand. Clearly, by spending a higher amount, you will get products capable of washing clothes for people with allergies, for children and, in general, satisfying the most diverse needs.

Going into specifics, new generation washing machines have different sensors that allow you to understand how many clothes are in the drum and how to set the spin cycle. Instead, some models also have Wi-Fi connectivity, which allows you to connect it to your smartphone and obtain a series of useful information in real time, such as the program used, consumption and much more. Finally, one of our recommendations is to buy a product with an anti-crease function (it is characterized by a series of steam jets that soften the garments), which allows you to obtain clean and almost completely ironed clothes.
