With more and more cheap washing machines being available on the market, you may be wondering how manufacturers are able to make cheap washing machines. Understanding how cheaper washing machines are made can help you decide if a cheap machine is right for you.
In order to make a cheaper washing machine, manufacturers need to ensure they have lower upfront costs. One of the ways they can reduce upfront costs is by choosing cheaper materials. The parts of a cheaper washing machine that may be made from different or cheaper materials include:
Cheaper materials tend to degrade faster and encounter problems more quickly. If a cheaper washing machine begins to develop problems with some of its parts, the type or quality of the materials it is made from could mean the parts are not repairable or replaceable.
Manufacturers of cheaper machines also want to assemble them more quickly, in order to save on labour costs. The quicker assembly also allows them to assemble more machines in one go. This could mean they are not built as well as more expensive models and may be more difficult to disassemble if any problems arise.
One of the other things that make some washing machines cheaper than others is the lack of features and settings. You may not have as many wash settings available and other popular features such as delayed start, pre-wash and stain removal, and easy iron settings may not be available.
