Buying guides

Find the ideal washing machine for you


Whether you go for a freestanding washer, or one that's built-in behind a cabinet to fit in with your kitchen or laundry room theme, you need to make sure that the washer will fit.

How much room do you have?

60 - 48cm width – we recommend a front-loading washer
48 - 34cm width – a slim front-loading washer will fit in this space
45 - 40cm width – consider a top loading washer

Top-tip: If you have a small laundry room, consider purchasing a 2-in-1 washer dryer combo. Good to know if you would like to stack a dryer on top is to choose a front loading washing machine.


How many times a week do you run your washing machine?

Less than 4 times a week – a 5-6 kg washer will be sufficient unless you often wash large items like jackets and duvets
4-6 times a week – a 7 kg washer will suit your needs perfectly
6+ times a week – reduce your number of washes by simply selecting a machine with a large capacity (8+ kg)


When do you do your laundry?
Select a machine with time-delay so you can delay the start of your cycle to a time that suits you: late at night or early in the morning for cheaper energy bills.


How do you dry your clothes?
Choose a washing machine with a fast spin cycle for shorter drying times. The quicker your clothes spin in the wash cycle, the more moisture is spun out and the less drying they’ll need. 

Top-tip: Do not forget to set a slower spin cycle for your delicate clothes and garments to make them stay in shape for longer. Our washing machines with ÖKOmix technology protect every fibre.
