Some Interesting facts about Front Load Automatic Machines

With washing machines gradually becoming a household necessity, more and more people are looking to buy washers. However, only knowing that washing machines are of four types — fully-automatic, semi-automatic, and top load washing machines and front load washing machines might prove insufficient when it comes to choosing the best model as per one’s needs. 

Washing machines may be semi-automatic where the users are expected to carry out a lot of the tasks manually. Or they can be fully-automatic where everything gets done at the press of a button. Front loading machines come under this category exclusively. Let us try and know more about them.

However, with the emergence of various models at different price points and finance schemes, these appliances have become a lot more affordable recently. As a result, the front loading washing machines have been witnessing a surge in sales. With this context in place, here are a few interesting facts that you must know before buying your first front loading washing machine.

Fully automatic features: 

Front loading washing machines belong to the fully-automatic segment of washing machines, where the laundry is loaded in from the front. Here, the users only have to load the laundry in the machine and select the right settings for the wash, while the machine does the rest, thus proving to be extremely suitable in low member or urban households.

Quality of cleaning: 

These machines have numerous wash settings, which means you can set the water temperature, spin speed etc. depending on the kind of fabrics that are to be washed. Most such machines come with settings like Gentle, Normal, Permanent Press etc. aimed at delicate fabrics like wool and silk, regular wear like jeans, and synthetic fabrics respectively. These settings help in treating different fabrics better, thus increasing their lifespan.

Water and time consumption: 

One of the best features of these machines is the low water consumption rate on which they function. It has been noted that an average front loading washing uses nearly half the water used by a top loading machine. Also, the drying process in these machines is much faster, which makes up for the time lost in the washing process, which tends to be slower here as compared to top loading models.

Power consumption: 

Washing machines tend to consume more power when using hot water or while cleaning heavier loads. And although washing machines, like all other electrical appliances, indicate the power they save through the star ratings, it is a given that fully automatic machines do use a little more energy than semi-automatic ones. The other fact that fully-automatic machines cannot be stopped mid-cycle might pose a challenge to people living in areas prone to power cuts. However, most of these models do come with the auto-restart feature, which picks things up from where it left.

Cost efficiency: 

All that being said, it is obvious that front-loading models are bound to cost more, given their advanced technology and superior end results. However, with the EMI schemes and other financing options, one can expect to buy, say, Samsung front load washing machines from less than INR 30,000 to as much as INR 80,000.
