Freestanding washing machines come in a range of drum sizes to suit all wash loads. There are compact machines 6kg or less and 7kg 8kg and 9kg for medium-sized families. For the larger household, a 10kg, 12kg or 13kg washing capacity will do an admirable job. The larger the drum the more clothes can be added saving time and energy. All the top brands make large load washing machines. These include Hoover, AEG, LG, Zanussi, Beko, Samsung, Panasonic, Hotpoint, Candy and Whirlpool.
You are unlikely to find a large load washing machine under £300 unless in the sales or on offer. A popular price range between £400 to £800 will bring an impressive lineup of models with bigger wash loads. Anything over this will boast the latest in laundry tech, smart touch controls, quieter operation and long-lasting performance. Choosing a larger load capacity is ideal for managing bulky items. It’s also great for tackling a build-up of dirty washing that you can launder in one go rather than do multiple wash loads. Although big on the inside, large drum machines are space-efficient that doesn’t take up any extra room.
Smart Washing Machines with Extra Large Drum
The Samsung AddWash 12kg washing machine is equipped with many innovative features including the unique Addwash door. This smaller door on the main door allows any missed items to be added during the wash cycle. But that’s not the only clever piece of technology going on. The arrival of Wi-Fi enabled washing machines is set to transform the weekly wash day. Using an app on your smartphone or tablet you can remotely operate and monitor the wash cycle. You can also detect any problems with Smart Check – an automatic error-monitoring system. Other brand names with large load wi-fi washing machines include Hoover, Bosch, Siemens and LG
