Expert review

The Whirlpool FreshCare+ FWG81496W freestanding washing machine is set up to wash around 8kg of laundry and will spin water away at 1,400rpm, which is faster than many. It carries an A+++ energy label and that should mean it's up there with the most efficient washing machines you'll find. To find out how well it washes, spins and rinses and to see how energy efficient it really is, we put it through a month of rigorous tests at our lab. Read on for our full review and test results for this Whirlpool washing machine.
