If your current washing machine is putting you in a spin, you could replace it cheaply with the Hotpoint WMAL641P washing machine, on sale for £243.97 at Appliances Direct.
The average price of a washing machine is around £300 – this model was originally selling for £289.97 – so we think this is a great deal.
The 6kg-capacity washing machine has special wash options, including baby clothes and anti-allergy programs, and is A+ rated. Find out how well it tackled tough stains in our washing machine reviews.
Choosing a washing machine
When choosing a washing machine, it’s important to look at key features such as the size of the drum – 7kg is around average, but you can get up to12kg for large households.
You should also consider how much energy and water a machine uses; the washing machine spin speed (1200rpm is average, but machines can range from 1400 to 1800rpm); and any extras, such as the style of display.
Which? washing machine tests
Which? experts conduct extensive tests on washing machines – rating each one on several factors, including how well it cleans and rinses, how noisy it is, how much energy it uses and how good its special features are. We even enlist the help of a dog to see how well ‘refresh programs’ remove odours from clothes.
