Zanussi washing machines

Zanussi washing machines are the siblings of AEG machines, and both brands are owned by Electrolux. You'll find that they're very similar in terms of wash performance and reliability.

Below, we've gathered together all of our Which? review test results for Zanussi washing machines, as well as a rating for how reliable its models are. 

We've been testing and reviewing washing machines for years and have discovered big differences between good and bad models. To help you make a decision about whether a Zanussi washing machine is right for you, we've listed the pros and cons of owning one, while customers share their thoughts on whether they'd recommend the brand and buy another Zanussi.

All the information you'll find here has been independently researched – we buy the Zanussi washing machines we test ourselves and we run our own surveys to find out what owners really think of their machines.

If you'd prefer to read reviews of the individual models we've tested, head to our Zanussi washing machine reviews.

How much do Zanussi washing machines cost?

Zanussi produces a large range of affordable washing machines, typically costing between £200 and £400. The average price is £340.

The more you spend the more features you get. Integrated models also tend to cost more, around £500.

Choosing the right Zanussi washing machine for you

Zanussi is the sister brand of AEG, but tend to make cheaper and less feature-packed washing machines. 

This is because Zanussi doesn't release many new models often. Most Zanussi washing machines we have reviewed were originally released in 2014 and 2015.

As such it's unsurprising that Zanussi washing machines tend to have minimal features. There are no smart Zanussi washing machines, for example.

Most Zanussi washing machines are white, but it's possible to find silver models, and some with a white body and stylish chrome door rims.
