Longevity is an important factor when purchasing a new washing machine. Some consumers worry that as 10kg washing machines hold heavier weights and have longer washing times, they’re more likely to encounter problems and have shorter lifespans.
However, this is not true. To help clear up the confusion, today, we are going to look at the longevity of a 10kg washing machine and whether this differs from a smaller machine.
The expected lifespan of a 10kg washing machine is no different to smaller machines. Having a larger machine doesn’t affect its longevity. In fact, it could be argued that larger-capacity washing machines are likely to last longer.
This is because the biggest indicator of how long a washing machine is going to last is the way you use it.
One of the most important factors that affect the longevity of a washing machine is the weight of your load compared to your machine’s capacity. Many people tend to overfill their machines to try and clear their laundry baskets. This can cause the drum to become unbalanced and place strain on the washing machine’s bearings, ultimately resulting in your machine developing problems or breaking. As a 10kg machine has a bigger capacity, you can fit more laundry inside, without risking causing damage to the machine.
Another contributing factor is how frequently your machine is used. Washing machines are usually designed to complete a certain number of cycles. After this time, your machine is more likely to encounter problems or require repairs. As a 10kg washing machine can hold more laundry, fewer cycles will be required per week which should lengthen the lifespan of your machine.
Not only does the Ebac 10kg washing machine have great longevity, but it also comes with a 7-year warranty. This means you will be covered for parts and labour if your washing machine encounters any problems within this time.
