How To Choose A Quiet Washing Machine?

Ebac washing machine

Today more than ever we appreciate quiet and unobtrusive appliances. In order to choose a washing machine that is quiet and effective there are several factors we need to consider to ensure in order to get the machine that we want.

How loud is a washing machine?

Ebac washing machines operate at 61dBa for washing and 73dBa when spinning – this is quieter than the vast majority of washing machines on the market today. Ebac achieves this excellent performance in several ways.

What type of motor is used in a washing machine?

Firstly, Ebac uses a brushless inverter driven motor. A brushless motor has no contact parts with the washing machine and instead uses electromagnetic forces to turn and rotate the drum. Because of this, there is no friction created and therefore no noise! An invertor driven motor is more expensive than a traditional motor, but offers many benefits in both long term reliability and quiet operation. Used in all Ebac washing machines, a key consideration when choosing a quiet washing machine is to ensure it has a brushless inverter driven motor.

What is the best material for a quiet washing machine?

The next factor to consider when looking for a quiet washing machine is the quality of the components used. High quality bearings will result in smoother rotation of the drum, less friction and less noise. High quality bearings also allow the drum to spin without vibration and that smooth rotation results in less banging and noises emanating from the drum turning and spinning at high speeds.

A high quality drum spider and bearings cannot be replicated with cheap alternatives. Ebac’s high quality components provide a very low sound attenuation and ultimately, a very quiet washing machine!

In addition, a quiet washing machine also requires a strong metal case with inbuilt insulation. Ebac washing machines are made from thick, high quality steel that has been specially made and insulated in key areas to absorb sound and minimise noise. This is again cannot be replicated with cheap washing machines and is a key component in containing noise that is generated within the casing of the machine.

How can the quality of the plastic components impact washing machine noise?

The final factor to consider is the quality of the plastic components. High quality thick plastic not only absorbs sound, but prevents rattle and shaking, offering even more sound protection. Ensuring thick, high quality plastic components in your machine also offers the benefit of being durable and increasing longevity of performance. All of Ebac’s plastic components are made on site in the Ebac factory to ensure high quality standards.

The combination of all these factors make Ebac washing machines some of the quietest on the market, something which is not possible to replicate from cheaper alternatives. These are the key things that you need to consider i0f you want a quiet washing machine.
