Here are 10 tips when buying a washing machine:
Here you can get a really good handle on what real customers think about that washing machine brand, how good it is, how reliable is, the customer service support and how well it performs in real-life situations!
All Ebac washing machines have brushless and vehicle driven motors. Brushless means that the components don't wear out as no physical parts touch the motor. Inverter driven means it is also quiet and efficient, and all in all, has great performance in a really quiet way.
We’re all about washing machines that have recirculating pumps. The extra recirculating pump helps your washing machine be more efficient. It recirculates the water around the drum to ensure an effective and thorough wash.
Many cheaper washing machines now are not serviceable or repairable. Try to ask if it is a two-piece drum, if the bearings are sealed within the unit or they can be replaced. Understand if those parts are available to source quickly if something breaks. All these things make sure that your machine is repairable and can last a very long time.
Cheaper washing machines aren't built to last, often only offering a one or two-year warranty. This tells you that they don't expect their washing machine to last much longer than two or three years. Ebac washing machines come with a seven-year warranty. High-quality washing machines usually come with a longer warranty because they've been built to last the more reliable, with better quality manufacturing and higher quality components
Washing machines these days, especially high-quality ones, can be incredibly quiet. All Ebac washing machines are very quiet. They have a very brushless motor, high-quality steel construction and insulation and high-quality bearings - all of which offer an extremely quiet cycle.
Buying a washing machine made in the UK means it is built to higher quality standards than many of the cheaper models and brands available. These are usually made in Eastern European countries where they take advantage of very low labour rates and poor working conditions to manufacture cheaply. We don't advocate that. It's also not very good for the machines carbon footprint or the UK economy.
The washing machine drum goes round and round at incredible speeds up to 1600 revolutions per minute. That creates an enormous force on the washing machine and the bearings take the brunt of that. If cheap quality bearings are overused, then these can become misaligned, noisy and can throw the machinery out of balance and result in the degradation of the entire machine. Ebac washing machines use very high-quality steel bearings – one of the best you can get.
Always make sure you open the door, many designs of washing machines now make the door look big from the outside, but when you open it, it's quite small. Look to make sure that the door opens wide enough to make loading the machine easier. This allows you maximum access to load and unload your washing machine very easily.
Generally speaking, you get what you pay for. If you can't afford the lump sum, many retailers, including Ebac, offer interest-free credit. With this, you can get a very good washing machine that will last for years and years and years for as little as £40 per month.
