The best washing machines are excellent at stain busting and we’ve found two freestanding washing machines that clean white and coloureds so well we’ve just named them Best Buys.
If you’re shopping for a new machine this weekend and want to find out which washing machines were awarded five gold stars for washing by Which? be sure to check out our 12 latest washing machine reviews.
Reading our reviews will also help you avoid the washing machines we’ve just tested that we marked down as mediocre for washing and downright poor when rinsing.
How we test washing machines
Each washing machine we test is faced with the challenge of cleaning the toughest of dried-on stains. We use super-hard-to-shift grass, blood, chocolate, wine and coffee. And we test each machine three times with each set of stains to work out whether it’s a stain-buster or a stain-retainer.
In our recent tests, we couldn’t find fault with either of the outstanding new Best Buy washing machines, which scored a hugely impressive 79% and 80% in our stringent lab tests.
Best Buy washing machine reviews
There are more than 40 Best Buy washing machines on the which.co.uk site for you to choose from. And when you see the red Best Buy logo, you know that you’ll be able to rely on the machine to leave your clothes stain free, thoroughly rinsed and with as much water as possible spun out of them.
The worst washing machines we’ve tested have significantly less impact on the toughest of stains, leaving around 30% more stain still on your clothes.
