When you do decide to invest in a washing machine, be sure to shop around for the best prices on Junk Mail and find a washing machine that is not too small or too big for your laundry needs. It is also important to think about water and energy efficiency. While these models might have a higher price tag, the fact that they use less power and less water is not only good for your wallet in the long run, but also for the environment – especially with our recent water shortages.
When it comes to the type of machine, consider whether you will benefit from a washer dryer combo. A front loader washing machine is great if you have an under-the-counter-space for it, but if you have more room and need something that can do big loads, you can opt for a top load washing machine as well.
Also be sure to check out the warranties that come with your machine. Some brands for example offer great warranties on their motors, but be sure to read the fine print and, if you should take extended warranties, that it is a financially sound move.
