Washing machine reviews

Which? washing machines expert Adrian Porter says: 'Hi-tech features in washing machines are now common; from steam cycles for freshening up clothes to sensors that can spot if you’ve used too much detergent and add extra rinsing to compensate.

'We focus our testing on the fundamentals. Hi-tech features can be handy, but it’s more important that your washing machine can do a great job of the basics – cleaning, rinsing, spinning and keeping energy use low.

'We also know how important it is for a washing machine to be quiet, so we test each model for noise levels during the main wash and the spin cycle.'
