A washing machine is a fairly rare purchase in most people’s lives – with any luck, we only have to buy a new one every five to ten years. So when it comes to buying a new one, most people are pretty rusty on what to look for.
One of the best washing machine manufacturers on the market is Hotpoint, which has an impressive range of washing machine models to suit most budgets. So which one should you choose? Firstly, you’ll need to consider the space that your Hotpoint washing machine is fitting into.
This will affect the size of machine you can get and, consequently, what drum size you can go for. Drum size is measured in kilos, and most Hotpoint washing machines will offer a drum size of around 9kg, which is ideal for families, but this can go down to 5kg or up to more than 11kg.
Energy efficiency is also important for your washing machine, as this can save you a lot of money over your machine’s lifetime. The most energy efficient models will have a rating of A+++, though machines with ratings lower than this will still have decent efficiency.
