3. Beko WR862441B 8Kg Washing Machine

Beko WMI71641 Integrated 7Kg Washing Machine

Key features

  • Quickest wash time: 14 minutes
  • 8kg drum capacity
  • Allergy setting
  • Quiet mode
  • 15 washing programmes

Pros

  • Extremely quiet
  • Great capacity
  • Excellent features
  • No loss of colour

Cons

  • Some programmes are over 3 hours long

Verdict

With a spin cycle reaching only 76 dB and a washing cycle coming in at 50 dB, this is certainly a quiet machine. In fact, during the washing cycle, you’ll likely not even know the machine is turned on. This makes this washing machine great for smaller homes, and the large 8 kg capacity makes it perfect for a family of four or more.

The allergy setting means that as long as you use the right fabric conditioner and washing powder (see these washing powders for sensitive skin), your family can enjoy the soft feel of their clothes with none of the itchiness.

Overall, this is a great machine that we really couldn’t find much wrong with. Even though some programmes run for 3 hours, there is the 14-minute quick wash option, and it works great.

4. Hoover HBWM 916TAHC-80 Integrated 9 kg Washing Machine

Hoover HBWM 916TAHC-80 Integrated 9 kg 1600 Spin Washing Machine

Key features

  • Quickest wash time: 14 minutes
  • 9 kg drum capacity
  • 1600 rpm spin speed
  • A+++ energy rating

Pros

  • Large door for easing loading and unloading
  • Cleans very fast
  • The easy iron programme really does work
  • Very quiet

Cons

  • Difficult to select programmes
  • Spin speed is restricted on most programmes

Verdict

This washing machine is really built for speed. There are loads of quick wash programmes from 14 minutes up to an hour. It also automatically shortens the programme for lighter loads, meaning you just have to turn it on and off it goes.

The cleaning power of this machine is exceptional. Even muddy clothes come out looking great after the 15 minutes wash!

Quite honestly, we found it difficult to pick fault with this washing machine. It would be nice if the programme dial was a bit clearer and if the spin speed could max out on all programmes, but it does such a great job at cleaning your clothes that you’ll forget about these little gripes after every wash.

5. Samsung WW5000 Ecobubble WW80J5555MW 8Kg Washing Machine

Samsung WW5000 Ecobubble WW80J5555MW 8Kg Washing Machine

Key features

  • Quickest wash time: 15 minutes
  • 8 kg drum capacity

  • The bubble soak option helps to loosen stains for cleaner clothes

Cons

  • Eco wash takes 2 hours and 20 minutes
  • Some find the machine noisy

Verdict

This machine is seriously impressive. Everything about it is economical, and yet it does a fantastic job at cleaning clothes too. The quick wash leaves your clothes feeling and looking great, and the longer eco wash leaves your wallet a little bit fuller too.

Although the eco wash and other programmes take a while to work, there are plenty of other programmes on the machine that produce great results fast. Also, even though this is the quiet model from Samsung, it certainly isn’t the quietest on this list. However, it is very easy to use and has some great technology inside. This is a fantastic washing machine for any family home.
