Six new Best Buy washing machines onlineGet clothes clean with a Best Buy washing machine

01 July 2012


10 washing machines have been through the lab and the results are in: we have a new highest scoring washing machine, six new Best Buys and the quietest model we’ve seen (and heard) in years.

The latest batch of washing machines to come through our tests include models from Bosch, LG, Zanussi, AEG, Hotpoint and two machines from brands made by Argos: Bush and ProAction.

We’ve also done some extra testing to see if Zanussi’s ‘Jetsystem+’ technology will save you money on your energy and water bills.

Energy labels do not give the whole story, so we provide an estimate of the annual running cost for every appliance we test. If you’re looking for an outstanding washing machine that will save you money and keep your bills low, check out our washing machine reviews.

A washing machine for everyone

Whether you’re in the market for a large 12kg capacity washing machine, like the LG F1495BDS, or you’re looking for an uncomplicated and affordable washing machine, like the ProAction A105Q, our latest batch of tested washers has a model for everyone.

We also have three options for those looking for an integrated (built-in) washing machine - with built-in machines from AEG, Hotpoint and Zanussi.

Zanussi Jetsystem+ tested

Several of Zanussi’s washing machines comes with Jetsystem+ technology, which claims to tailor the amount of energy and water per wash to exactly what is needed.

To test these claims, we compared an 80% cotton load and a 4kg synthetics loads on a Jetsystem+ cycle and a regular cleaning system cycle. See the results in our expert review of the Zanussi ZWJ12591W in our links, below.
