When choosing your new washing machine, you may already know what features you are looking for, the size of the machine you need and the load capacity. However, more important than all these factors is the washing machine’s reliability.
Choosing a reliable washing machine is extremely important for several reasons.
1. Reliable washing machines last longer
Reliable washing machines are made from higher quality materials and are made with a higher level of manufacturing. This means that a reliable washing machine will have a longer expected lifespan and will need repairing or replacing less frequently.
2. Reliable washing machines are more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly
The higher quality materials and parts that result in a reliable washing machine are usually more energy-efficient. Your machine will use less energy and water to complete a cycle, which will hopefully save you money on your energy bills. High-quality parts are also usually made from recyclable materials, making them more environmentally friendly.
3. Manufacturers of reliable washing machines usually offer a longer warranty
As well as a longer expected lifespan, you can also expect to receive a longer warranty with a reliable washing machine. This is because manufacturers won’t usually provide a warranty past the point when problems are likely to occur. Less reliable machines will therefore have a shorter warranty – usually only one to two years. This means if you encounter any problems with your machine after this time, you will be responsible for any repair and labour costs. Having a longer warranty can save you money in the long term and mean you don’t have to replace your washing machine as quickly.
