No modern home or utility room is ever complete without a washing machine, and busy family life simply cannot cope without one. With an effective washing machine you can effortlessly get through piles of laundry, dealing with a wide range of clothing items and fabrics. Choosing the right washing machine can be a daunting task with so many brands on the market, programmes, drum capacities and more; however by choosing the right washing machine you can meet all of your family's needs for years to come.

What washing machine should I buy?

There are various features you should look for when purchasing a washing machine. The combination of drum size, washing modes, temperatures, styles and of course price means that you can easily get lost in the variety. A 10kg capacity washing machine is a great choice for larger families as the large drum size means you can fit in big loads at one time. However if you're tight on space or have less laundry to wash, a smaller washing machine such as 7kg may be more suitable. If you're focused on becoming more eco-friendly, you should also keep an eye on the washing machine's energy rating and if possible how much water is used per wash.

Of course it's not always about the washing machine's features and capacity - it's also about how it looks in your home. Black washing machines are becoming increasingly popular in contemporary kitchens and utility rooms, whilst a traditional white washing machine is still a great option.

What is the best washing machine brand?

With the advancement of technology, each washing machine brand has had to develop their features to keep up with demand. At Oldrids we have all the leading brands on the market. Beko produce both entry level and more advanced washing machines including freestanding and integrated options; they are reknown for the amount of programmes available and ability to wash clothes quickly. Blomberg produce great family-friendly washing machines with large capacities whilst Bosch are famous for their reliability. For something more modern and futuristic looking, you can opt for an LG or Hoover washing machine with built-in smart technology meaning they can be controlled by your smartphone; turning on your laundry at the touch of a button.

Of course once you have washed your clothes you also need a way to dry them. Modern tumble dryers are therefore also an essential aspect of the household laundry routine. Gone are the days of shrunk clothes and high household bills; a modern tumble dryer is a great choice for drying your clothes efficiently and effectively - particularly during the colder Winter months when you can't hang clothes outside. Important for large families who do a lot of laundry, tumble dryers are generally available in two forms.

Vented Tumble Dryers pump the heat and moisture outside through a flexible pipe and therefore require this space to be available in your utility room. Alternatively they can also be positioned in a summer house or shed. Vented dryers remain a popular choice in the modern home because they use less energy than a condenser tumble dryer.

Condenser Tumble Dryers are becoming increasingly popular with advancements in technology. They can be located anywhere in the home and are packed with programmes to keep your fabrics in safe hands. Additional features such as AutoDry or dryness sensors means that your tumble dryer will automatically switch itself off once it thinks your clothes are dry, saving you both time and energy. 

All of our washing machines and tumble dryers come with a warranty or guarantee, meaning that you can have peace of mind in your purchase.

We also offer a useful major appliance uplift & disposal service, meaning that if you are simply looking to upgrade your current washing machine or tumble dryer, our friendly team can take your old unit away with them. Additionally, we also offer an installation service - taking away the necessity to not only move your new appliance to where you want it in the home, but also plug it in and ensure it is fully working before they leave your property.
