Choosing the best Beko washing machine

Beko is a popular brand in the UK, with machines selling in huge numbers. You'll find models with special programs, including quick washes, wool and hand-wash programs, and variable spin speeds - but you won't find cutting-edge tech, such as smart washing machines capable of being controlled from your smartphone. 

There's a range of drum capacities to choose from, depending on your laundry needs, with the largest Beko machines able to handle a whopping 12kg of laundry. But a 7kg drum is the capacity often recommended for medium-sized households. In this, you could wash about 22 shirts in one go, although a more realistic load might include two pairs of adult jeans, three pairs of children's jeans, four shirts, two bath towels, three small towels, three tea towels and two pillowcases.

You'll be able to find Beko washing machines in white, black or silver, which is handy for those concerned with matching their appliances to their kitchen or laundry room.
