There are multiple parts of a washing machine that contribute to the machine’s overall reliability. This includes:
The bearings: The bearings support the drum and prevent it from spinning unevenly or becoming off-balance. The bearings on Ebac washing machines are made from high-quality materials and have a high tolerance. This means they will keep your drum steady and support your washing machine’s motor.
The motor: The most reliable washing machines use a brushless inverter motor. This turns by magnetic induction and avoids any contact or friction with any part of the machine, meaning the motor does not wear down with use. The motor is one of the most important aspects of your washing machine’s health and can significantly affect its reliability. Some manufacturers choose not to install inverter motors, as they are more expensive to manufacture. Ebac only uses brushless inverter motors in all their washing machines.
The drum: The most reliable drums are made from high-quality, sturdy stainless steel. These have a longer lifespan and wash your clothes more effectively. Ebac’s drums are made from stainless steel and are enclosed in a high-quality, durable plastic case for increased protection and reliability.
The pump: The most reliable washing machines have two pumps - a recirculating pump, which moves water around the drum efficiently, and a drain pump. This ensures your clothes are cleaned to a higher standard and also means the pressure of moving and draining the water is shared between two pumps, improving the durability and reliability of the pumps.
The frame and casing: This includes the outer shell of your washing machine, the door, control panel, and detergent draw. The plastic should be high-quality and robust and should be able to withstand reasonable pressure.
