Three washing machines to avoid
While the best washing machines we've tested will have your clothes clean in record time, Don't Buy washing machines will try and fail to remove tough stains. Without enlisting the help of our expert reviews, you run the risk of buying a washing machine that lets you down whether you're running a cotton wash or a synthetic wash.
Below, we've rounded up a trio of Don't Buy washing machines that aren't worth your hard-earned cash.
Best washing machine deals
Every now and then you might catch a premium washing machine discounted to a fantastic price. But it can be tricky to know if a discount is the 'real deal'.
That's why every month we scour the internet to find you the best washing machines currently on offer, with real savings.
Cheap washing machine reviews
Even the cheapest washing machines cost upwards of around £200, and if you're paying a sizeable sum for a new one, we think you deserve the best cleaning power that won't let you down.
That's why we put each machine we review through at least a month's worth of rigorous testing to find out how well they tackle tough stains, how thoroughly they rinse clothes to remove detergent and how good they are at cleaning clothes on the most commonly used programs. We even check how noisy they are, and how efficient they are at using water and energy.
But it's worth bearing in mind that if you're going for a cheap washing machine, you should be prepared for fewer functions and programs. You're also unlikely to find the biggest drum sizes in cheap machines so may need to pay more if you've got a big family or need to wash large loads.
