Shopping for a quiet washing machine can be difficult if you don’t know what to look for. Some manufacturers may claim their washing machine is quiet, without providing any information on the decibel level. Others may compromise on other features or materials in order to keep manufacturing costs low.
Below is a list of what to look for when shopping for a quiet washing machine.
Low decibel (dB)
Quiet washing machines will have two different decibel levels - one for washing and one for spinning. The lower the decibel, the quieter the machine will be.
Brushless inverter motor
A brushless motor has no contact with any part of your washing machine. The motor uses electromagnetic forces that enable it to turn and rotate the drum. The lack of friction results in no noise. All Ebac washing machines have a brushless inverter-driven motor.
As well as a thick metal frame, you should also look for a machine that has inbuilt insulation. This will help to absorb any sound and minimise the noise that emits from your washing machine.
Not only will high-quality materials result in improved durability and reliability of your machine and fewer repairs needed, but they also have a significant contribution to how quiet your washing machine will be. The washing machine bearings are a major component of your machine and help to support the drum. The bearings need to be strong in order to prevent the movement of the drum and to minimise noise.
Quiet mode feature
Everyone knows that the spin section of a wash is much louder than the rest of the cycle. The quiet mode feature stops the wash cycle at ‘rinse’ – which is approximately 80% into the wash. The clothes are left submerged in water (which prevents odours) until you intervene. This means the loudest part of the wash cycle only takes place when you allow it to.
All of these great features can be found on Ebac washing machines.. You can even choose from 8kg, 9kg, and 10kg washing machines.
