You can choose between an automatic and a semi-automatic washing machine. An automatic washing machine costs more than a semi-automatic one. Here is information about washing machines.
A semi-automatic washing machine consumes more water and detergents in its washing cycle compared to the automatic one. You can set the fully automatic machine the washing duration and the amount of detergent and water to minimize wastage.
You will use less amount of detergent and water thus lowering the costs of laundry in your home.
A fully automatic washing machine saves time because it does not need you to monitor it as it does the washing. The semi-automatic washing machine needs you to monitor the amount of water and detergent constantly and when it is done it you have to move the clothes from the washer to the dryer tubs.
A semi-automatic washing machine is heavy and constant maintenance is needed. The fully automatic washing machine is durable, and it needed little maintenance; therefore, homes that do tough and rough washing regularly are advised to buy it instead of the semi-automatic one.
Once you set the fully automatic machine the specifications for different types of washing it saves the settings so that you do not reset it every time you need to do your laundry. You should know the settings for different fabrics because are delicate and they tear easily, and others fade color when washed for too long, under wrong temperatures and pressure or using the wrong detergent.
Your washing machine should have a spin cycle that matches your laundry needs. You can tell the spin cycle of the washing machine because it is denoted by revolutions per minute (rpm). Tender fabrics need you to set the washing machine at 300-500 revolutions per minute. If the washing machine cannot be set to spin cycle that is that low then you need a better one.
How much power does the washing machine need for it to operate? Install an energy-saving washing machine in your house. Ensure that the washing machine can turn itself off automatically once the clothes are clean.
Its size should be enough for a large load of fabrics per wash. A large family needs a washing machine that has a large load capacity while a small one or a single person can survive will with a washing machine that has a small load capacity.
Buy a washing machine that fits that space that you have set aside for it. A washing machine that has a large load size is also large in size.
Buy a washing machine that has a dryer built inside it for convenience. You will not have the stress of buying a separate dryer or spend time hanging the clothes or moving them to the dryer.
