How we test washing machinesAll of the washing machines that make our best washing machines list have been scientifically tested, evaluated and rated based on nine specific criteria, including design and build quality, washing quality, spin efficiency, noise, speed, and value for money.
Each washing machine goes through the exact same testing, including multiple washes on full loads and half-loads using the normal cotton program and ‘eco’ mode.
We calculate the approximate annual running cost based on typical UK usage, and we weigh clothes after each wash to determine how much water is left over. Too much water weight means clothes will take ages to dry, which is just plain annoying.
Our stain test includes common stains such as wine, coffee, blood, ketchup, fruit juice and engine oil and we always use the same, known brand non-bio washing detergent in every washing machine we test.
