Something that is reliable is consistently good in quality and performance. In other words, if you have a reliable washing machine, you should be able to trust that the machine will wash your clothes efficiently and effectively and you will not have to be concerned about the machine malfunctioning or breaking.
Reliability should be one of the biggest priorities for washing machine manufacturers. However, this is not always the case. So what makes a washing machine reliable and how can you ensure you choose a reliable washing machine?
The main factor that determines a washing machine’s reliability is its materials. Machines made using cheaper materials are more likely to encounter problems. This is because the parts may begin to malfunction or degrade.
When a manufacturer compromises on the quality of the materials, this reduces the expected lifespan of the washing machine. Cheaper materials on the following parts of a washing machine can negatively affect the machine’s reliability:
The bearings: This is the part of the machine that supports the drum. Higher-quality bearings prevent the drum from spinning unevenly or becoming off-balance.
The motor: If the motor fails on your washing machine, your machine could fail to start. Washing machines that have an inverter motor tend to be more reliable and last longer.
The drum: Look for a drum made of stainless steel, as these are more durable and have a longer lifespan.
The frame: High-quality frames with added insulation are more reliable and offer better support to your washing machine.
When Ebac first began manufacturing washing machines, they made a conscious decision to only make machines using high-quality components and with a high level of craftsmanship. Our machines are designed with longevity in mind. In fact, all Ebac washing machines have a 10-year life expectancy, showing our commitment to durability and reliability.
