The Candy Rapido RO1696DWHC7 freestanding washing machine brings together a world of tech and washday innovation for an affordable price. On board you'll find Candy's Snap & Wash programme, which allows users to take a photo of their washing which the machine then translates into a bespoke wash programme. You can control the RO1696DWHC7 with your voice and both set and monitor the wash with a smart phone. But tech aside for a moment, what is this Candy washing machine like when it comes to removing stains from clothes? And how much energy does it use while washing? To get to the bottom of this, we tested it. Read on for our full review of this Candy washing machine.
