How to select Washing Machines
A washing machine is one of those inventions that have been a big blessing to mankind. It is a quick and easy way to wash dirty, smelly and stained clothes without putting in the cumbersome labor of washing, beating or scrubbing them by hand.
Washing machines were introduced in the UK as early as in 1782 and it was in 1937 when the mechanized versions were launched. As in the case of all other electronic appliances, washing machines also went through modifications slowly. Being eco-friendly as well as easy to use is a necessity for current washing machines.
Currently the washing machines available in the market fall under two categories - semi automatic and fully automatic. Some of them not only remove the dirt from the clothes but also dry them.
There is no such thing as the best washing machine as the term ‘best’ itself is highly relative. You need to see what your needs are and choose the right washing machine for you.

The following tips may be helpful when you are trying to decide how to buy the right washing machine:
• First thing to do is to look at the kind of load you expect to have. Obviously, the heavier the load the bigger the drum capacity will need to be. On an average a 6 Kg drum is a good size to invest in for a family of four.
• Next factor to consider is the type of the machine. Do you pick up a semi-automatic or an automatic? Here two things should help you decide. First is your budget. Semi-automatics are much cheaper than the fully automatic ones. Second is the availability of a continued supply of water. Since, automatic machines will use water straight from the connected source all through washing, rinsing and spinning therefore, if there is a problem with your water supply and you are not sure that you will have a continued supply through the connected tap during the time of operation, then a semi-automatic washing machine where you can fill in the water manually would be a better option. In today’s world of flats and apartments with a fairly decent supply of water it really should not be a problem to run an automatic one though.
• The third and final thing to decide is whether you want to go in for a front loader or a top loader. Obviously this does not apply to semi-automatics where top load is the only way to go. In automatic ones however, it is said that the “tumble wash” technology of front load is much better for cleansing than the “agitator” movement of the top load. Front loads do however, come more expensive than the top loads and if budget is a constraint then a top load will perform just as well as a front loader will.
