Ready for a new washing machine? You might be if your current model is breaking down more than its working. Yes, you could call out a service technician to give your old machine the once over but if that machine is out of warranty then you might end up paying more to fix an old washer than it would cost to buy a brand new model. Perhaps it’s time to go washing machine shopping! Here are some things you want to keep in mind as you head out.
Where will you put your washer? If you’re simply swapping out one machine for another then the answer is easy. However, you might consider maximizing space by getting a washer/dryer combo that is stackable. If both of the machines are front loading they can easily be put on top of each other. That will open up a lot more space for storage in your laundry room.
How often will you be using your washer? As a single person you might have done a load of laundry once a week if you had the time. But if you’re part of a growing family then that washer is going to be given a decent workout. Just as you maximize space you’ll want to maximize capacity. A larger drum will let you have bigger loads of laundry which ultimately can save you on water and electric charges.
What is the reliability of the model you’re considering? Don’t depend on your potential salesperson for advice in this matter. Yes, they’ll have all the stats but they’ll also be pushing certain models regardless of what you’re looking for. It’s best to get some objective opinions. Ask a friend what model that use and if they are happy. There are also plenty of online reviews you can tap into.
What are the warranties? There are some items where an investment in a warranty isn’t, well, warranted. But an appliance which will be used as much as a washer probably could benefit from an extended warranty. Just make sure you understand what is covered and for how long.
What special features can you add? The modern washer/dryer is chock full of special features. As long as you’re buying new think about what could be a benefit to you. Thinks like delayed starts, child locks and touchpad controls could be a great asset.
