Summer is a time for fun in the sun, but it also means more laundry. Whether it’s sandy beach towels or sweaty workout clothes, a reliable washing machine is a must-have for any household. If you’re in the look out for a new washing machine, here are four features to consider before making your purchase.
Capacity – The capacity of a washing machine refers to the amount of laundry it can hold in one cycle. If you have a large family or regularly wash bulky items like comforters or pillows, a washing machine with a larger capacity is a must-have. However, if you live by yourself or have limited space, a smaller capacity washing machine may be more practical. LG’s washing machines are designed to carry large loads in a very compact chassis, perfect even in tight spaces.
Energy Efficiency – Energy-efficient washing machines are not only better for the environment, but they can also save you money on your energy bill. Look for washing machines with an Energy Star rating, which means they meet strict energy efficiency guidelines. LG’s Dual Inverter Heat Pump for example, was awarded the Energy Star Most Efficient Mark in 2021 and offers up to 65% energy savings. Another feature that increases efficiency is LG’s Turbowash, which uses a Jet Spray to get a half-load of your washing clean in 59 minutes. The improved process reduces that time by a further 20, getting your laundry done in just 39 minutes using high-pressure sprays that wash and rinse your clothes more efficiently, using less water and therefore less energy.
Noise Level – If your laundry room is located near living spaces or bedrooms, a noisy washing machine can be a major disturbance. Look for washing machines that have a low decibel rating, which means they operate quietly. LG’s Direct Drive Motor is connected to a washing machine tub directly without any belt or pulley, minimizing noise vibrations. This simplified structure helps running washing machines to be quiet and reliable.
Smart Features – Smart washing machines offer a range of features that can make laundry day easier and more efficient. LG’s washing machines provide seamless integration with the Smart ThinQ app. The app will then diagnose any problems that you might be having with your machine and give you a solution. It also lets you control, schedule, and monitor your laundry cycles remotely through your smartphone in real-time.
When purchasing a new washing machine for the summer season, consider its capacity, energy efficiency, noise level, and smart features. LG’s washing machines, which was named the No.1 Home Laundry Appliances brand in ASEAN and No.1 Automatic Dryer brand in Asia Pacific by Euromonitor International Limited, meet all these criteria while also providing excellent aftersales and competitive pricing. By taking these factors into account, you can find the washing machine that meets your needs and helps make laundry day a breeze.
