With many people constantly on the lookout for a bargain, it may seem surprising that cheap washing machines are not more popular.
In fact, many people are consciously choosing to purchase a more expensive machine rather than a cheaper machine. This has got some people wondering why cheap washing machines are not very popular.
The main reason that many people opt not to buy a cheap washing machine is because cheaper machines have a shorter lifespan. Cheaper machines are made using lower-quality materials and are usually constructed more quickly. This means they don’t last as long and will need to be repaired or replaced much sooner.
Cheaper washing machines also usually come with a shorter warranty. Consumers are now more aware of the importance of a good warranty, especially when it comes to household products that are more likely to break and are expensive to repair or replace. Unlike Ebac washing machines that all come with a 7-year warranty, many cheaper machines only have a 1 or 2-year warranty.
Another reason why cheap washing machines are not more popular is their lack of additional settings and features. Cheaper machines usually have fewer wash settings, a less effective spin cycle and fewer attractive features such as easy-iron settings and pre-wash and stain removal.
Cheaper washing machines are also usually much louder. A cheap washing machine is made using cheaper parts. This means they will not have an inverter motor that reduces noise and vibrations and will have less insulation that absorbs sound. Cheap washing machines will also have cheaper bearings. The bearings help to support the washing machine’s drum, keeping it balanced and reducing noise levels.
These are just some of the factors that contribute to the lack of popularity of cheaper washing machines.
