When purchasing a new washing machine, it can be easy to just choose the cheapest washing machine on the market, or the same machine you had previously. However, if you are looking for a washing machine that lasts, you should make sure the washing machine you buy is reliable.
So why should you choose a reliable washing machine?
They last longer
A reliable washing machine is a quality appliance you can trust. They are made from higher-quality materials and are usually made with better craftsmanship. This means that a reliable washing machine will have a longer expected lifespan and will need repairing or replacing less often.
Reliable washing machines usually have a longer warranty
The warranty is a good indication of a washing machine’s reliability. Many manufacturers won’t provide a warranty past the point when problems are likely to occur. Less reliable machines will have a shorter warranty.
They are made from higher-quality materials
This is one of the biggest indicators of a washing machine’s reliability. The most reliable parts are those made with the highest quality materials and installed using high-quality workmanship. Important components of a washing machine that affect its reliability are the drum, the bearings, the pump, and the motor. You should also consider the reliability and robustness of the washing machine’s frame, insulation, casing, door, detergent draw, and control panel.
Reliable washing machines may be more environmentally friendly
Washing machines made from cheaper parts are usually less energy efficient. Many of their parts are also non-recyclable, meaning they will end up in landfills. As less reliable washing machines have a shorter lifespan, they are thrown away much more frequently.
Ebac made a conscious decision to only make machines using high-quality components. Our machines are designed with longevity in mind, with all washing machines having a 10-year life expectancy. They are also built to be more environmentally friendly, with many of the parts being recyclable.
