The washing machine is one of the appliances that we all have at home. One way or another we cannot do without it and when we do not hand check as the work of washing clothes by our grandmothers and great-grandmothers (I say women because in those years was the usual).
Thus, the washing becomes one of the most necessary appliances and therefore it comes to us with a need to think very well what our needs (present and future). Whether by price, specifications or energy consumption, choose a washing machine is a process that requires control some sections.
It is ultimately choosing one that suits our needs so we will see strong and not so strong points of a washing machine for its performance depending choose the one that suits you.
Some ways we have ever seen. The washing machine we had at home since I have memories stand out for the possibility of loading the laundry from the front, with a door that can resize depending on the model.
Front – loading washers are the most used because they allow placement in a number of sites, as the front door allows its integration in the kitchen under the counter. For this they have some measures we could say they are almost standard offering designs that cater to other appliances.
A front – loading model is ideal for large families thanks to a higher load capacity, which can easily reach 15 KG. We also have different types of clothing program we have planned wash.
Among the drawbacks noted especially one such as front-loading process, a method that can pose problems of access to certain people, whether elderly or some sort of mobility problem. Eventually our bill is passed back.
One option that has gained momentum lately and widely used by small families or couples. And they are characterized by first charge in the upper region, where we find the opening for this purpose. Thus, it is not necessary to introduce clothes crouch
This design provides a clean front but because we have to leave the top pool their integration under the kitchen countertop is almost impossible. And if we succeed, even without top, we have a part in which we cannot perform some task and always have to be free.
Compared to more uniform size and square front – loading washing machines, these are narrower and elongated, which makes them ideal for placing in a corner, usually a terrace kitchen or room to use so that no remaining space.

In addition and although traditionally the front has been targeted, manufacturers have chosen to look increasingly design, appearance thus provide a decorative touch, mainly because they are usually an appliance that we in sight.
And regarding its operation, we have said that are used mainly for smaller families. Families of three, single parents or couples who see their ideal lower load capacity by washing, which revolves around 7kg.
However they offer a number of disadvantages, among which include mainly three. First the highest energy consumption, as generally spend more than the front – loading rule since the spin – drying process is slower.
This process also by the shape and arrangement of the drum generates more noise and vibration and is more prone to breakdowns. They also tend to be more expensive than front – loading models.
The third option when a washing machine is us opt for a washer dryer. One type of washing machine that is usually front – loading and as its name suggests also allows drying clothes. Eye, not to be confused with a dryer along with a washer (each on its side) we ride we serve a wash column.
Washer dryers can be very useful at a time like this, where the cold and rain prevent proper clothes dry on clotheslines home. Therefore, provide an advantage as leaving clothes virtually dry, saving time and effort.
But as always, there are also drawbacks and in this case the main refer to a smaller capacity which typically ranges between 7 and 10 KG, limiting its use to the families of several members.
Besides the clothes drying process involves increased energy expenditure, causing this to manifest at the end on the electricity bill. Overcharged also it is in keeping with a price that is generally superior.
So as we see basically three types, three families within which we must find prices and specifications to suit our needs. And always look especially good energy rating, something our pocket thank the long run.
