My washing machine is on its way out so I am starting to look at new ones I want a good one but honestly don’t know what to look at or where to start. I am hoping people could help by recommending me some and preferably ones I don’t have to sell my kidney to afford. It’s for a family of 4 . Thank you in advance to anyone who could comment and recommend.

  • Fisher & Paykel have served me well till now and in the past with a medium sized family. Great washing machines that last for a long time.



  • Our previous washing machine was an Electrolux too. It was very good.
    The Bosch I got is so incredibly silent. I love that. :-)



  • We’ve had our electrolux for many years. It has been great. I think decide what type (Front or Top), size and generally the features you are after and perhaps budget and create a shortlist using appliance websites (Good Guys, appliances online etc) then look at online reviews of your shortlisted machines. Also check our choice reviews if you can.



  • Recently my 13 years-old washing machine died. I had to buy a new one so I looked on Internet for inspiration. I had a front-load machine, and I knew I still wanted that one. I had a 5 kilo’s washing machine before (we are in 3 in our family) and I actually found it a little small, so I was looking for something bigger.
    I ended up buying a Bosch 7 kg washing machine. This one. You can read the description and watch the video for more information. I hope this helps. https://www.appliancesonline.com.au/product/bosch-wak24162au-7kg-front-load-washing-machine
