When buying a new washing machine it’s easy to feel slightly overwhelmed with all the options available. If you’ve been wondering if 1600rpm better than 1200rpm? or that higher spin speeds ruin will ruin your clothes then read on! We’re on hand to bust some of the myths surrounded by higher spin speeds to help make choosing your new washing machines a little easier. 

Myth: Higher spin speeds will ruin your clothes!

Busted: No! Higher spin speeds will not ruin your clothes when you use the appropriate settings. High spin speeds are ideal for cottons, bulky items such as towels and bedding and denim. These types of items can handle the power of the top speeds and if you’re machine is maintained to a good standard you shouldn’t see any damage to your laundry at all.

However, if you whack a load of delicate and heavily embellished party dresses in the washer and spin it at 1200rpm then it’s fair to say you won’t like the outcome. Our tip? Read the care labels on your garments to be sure.

Myth Buster! Washing Machines with High Spin Speeds

Myth: Machines with higher spin speeds are more prone to breakdowns.

Busted: Many believe that higher spin speeds increase the wear and tear of the appliance as it puts more stress on the internal parts of the machine. However with the advanced technology today, washing machines are more reliable than ever.

There are washing machines on the market which have use innovative technology within the washer by using brushless Invertor motors and Direct Drive technology. By removing unnecessary belts and pulleys and using magnetic power, the inside parts are more streamlined making them some of the most reliable around.

Some manufactures trust the motors so much, that they come with a whopping 10 year warranty.

Myth Buster! Washing Machines with High Spin Speeds

Myth: The higher the spin speed the better!

Busted: You’d be forgiven for thinking the higher the spin speed the better but in actual fact it’s not as straight forward as that. You need to think about your lifestyle and your own requirements. If you own a lot of delicate items then a high spin speed is unlikely to benefit you as these need to be spun at a much lower speed – between 400-600rpm.

Also, if your wash loads tend to feature a lot of shirts then again, a lower spin speed is recommended and it will help to reduce creasing.

Picture this, your shiny new washing machine has arrived in your home, you’ve got laundry that needs washing for tomorrow and you’re raring to get started but what do you need to do before you load it and turn it on? Follow our mini checklist to make sure you’ve got everything sorted before your first wash load.

Removing Transit Bolts

1. Remove the Transit Bolts and/or Transit Bar – When your new washing machine arrives it will need a few things removing before you can use it. Manufactures fit washing machines with a transit bar and bolts to help secure and support the drum whilst it’s being transported. They are easily removed with household tools but can be detrimental if left on. Remember! Make sure you keep the transit bar/bolts in a safe place; you may need them in the future if you move home.

Plumbing in a washing machine 3 Things To Do When First Unpacking Your New Washing Machine

2. Plumb it in and put it in place – Plumbing in your new washing machine is relatively straight forward and no specialist knowledge or tools are required. It’s just a matter of removing the transit packaging as mentioned above, screwing on the fill hose(s) and connecting the drain hose to the waste water system. If you feel uncomfortable installing your washing machine, please seek professional help by calling your local plumber.

Registering your washing machine for a warranty

3. Register it for Warranty – Every washing machine will come with at least a 1 year manufacturer’s warranty but this is only valid once you register your appliance. The warranty information can be found with the instruction manual and paperwork and more often than not there are several ways to register e.g. by post, by telephone or online. The information needed may vary but in most cases you will need to have your washing machine’s model number, serial number and the date you purchased, along with some personal information such as your name and address.

We’re very pleased to introduce the new range of Fisher & Paykel Front Loader Washing Machines. We’ve been busy discovering all there is to know about these great energy efficient machines, here’s what you need to know!

“At Fisher & Paykel, our goal has always been to design and create the world’s most intelligent washing machines that care for your clothes by making them faster, better and more energy efficient.”

What is the Fisher & Paykel SmartDrive™ Technology & Vortex Wash?

Fisher & Paykel SmartDrive™ washing machines use their world first direct drive technology, which has revolutionised clothes washing and clothes care since the 1990s. By combining smart electronics with a direct drive motor and removing the belt and pulleys, these intelligent washing machines sense and respond to each individual load, delivering exceptional clothes care quickly, quietly and more efficiently.

Unique to Fisher & Paykel is the Vortex Wash which speeds up the cleaning process making most cycles less than an hour to complete when washing at 30˚C. Fisher & Paykel explain this feature as “an explosion” It quite simply uses the force of the spinning drum to deliver the soapy water deep into the fabric surface to get the clothes clean quicker.

1. Whisper Quiet

SmartDrive™ front loaders have a noise level of just 54dBA during the wash and less than 68dBA when spinning so you can wash at any time without disturbing those around you. This is achieved by removing cumbersome parts like belts and pulleys, making the washing more not only more reliable but it also produces less vibration and brings the noise levels down to just a whisper.

2. SmartTouch Control Dial

The SmartTouch™ Control Dial is your interface to SmartDrive™ technology. It distils 21 years of SmartDrive™ development into a user-friendly interface, to deliver an expert wash every time.

3. Self Diagnosis

Fisher & Paykel’s Front loader Washing Machines are capable of diagnosing their own problems. A series of user warnings guide you to solve simple issues like “taps not on” or “overdosing detergent”. Should a more complex problem arise a series of fault codes will guide an authorised service person to a speedy solution.

4. Hot & Cold Fill

Unlike many others, Fisher & Paykel’s front loader Washing Machines give you the option to choose whether the water is heated in the washing machine or uses your hot water supply. You can connect to cold only and let the washer heat the water, or if you wish to use hot water from your supply, connect to both hot and cold. Depending on your hot water supply, this may be a more energy efficient option, and speed up the cycles.

Other features in the Fisher & Paykel Washing Machine Range include:

‘Add a garment’ 

The ‘add a garment’ feature allows you to quickly add or remove a garment mid cycle – so if you’ve missed a pesky sock on the stairs you can pop it in no problem. Simply select add a garment and for most cycles the door will unlock immediately. If the drum water is too high, just enough will be drained out before the door is unlocked.

More Control

A wrinkle free option and a choice of three soil levels, give you more control over your wash.

Hygienic

Preventing the unpleasant build-ups that create smells has been made possible with the combination of anti-microbial materials, a Drum Clean cycle and a free draining door gasket.

Which model will you choose?

There are 3 washing machines to choose from within the new range all with A+++ efficiency and a varying capacities (7kg /8kg) spin speed (1200rpm/1400pm) and wash cycles (9 /13) Plus a wealth of features to make life easier and more efficient. Just scroll below to find out more about the different models.

Panasonic washing machines clean perfectly and care for your clothes. Efficient washing programmes and quiet operation enable you to have more flexibility in your life, while their eco-friendly features save both water and energy. The newest Panasonic washing machines are kind to the environment in two ways, they save both precious energy and water helping you to make a difference.

Panasonic has developed a range of innovative, highly efficient technologies, so you can save as much energy and water as possible with every wash. The 3D sensor, Perfect Sense, HydroActive+ and Inverter motor all work together perfectly to ensure clean results and the best possible resource savings in equal measure.

The innovative 3D sensor by Panasonic precisely measures the amount of clothes inside the drum, and then communicates this information to Perfect Sense, which optimally adapts the energy and water needed. This not only ensures precious resources are not wasted, but also the best
possible washing performance regardless of the size of the load.

Complementing the other energy saving features, HydroActive+ uses five multi-directional showers to ensure the most efficient washing possible. These showers rapidly deliver water to fully dissolve the detergent into the wash and provide thorough rinsing, resulting in less time and energy used.

The innovative Inverter motor inside many Panasonic washing machines receives information from the 3D sensor to determine the number of drum rotations needed. This enables the motor to work most efficiently according to the size of the load and also to ensure energy savings. Not only does the Inverter motor come with a ten year warranty, it is brushless making the motor extremely quiet for a more comfortable washing experience.

With a top-of-the-line Panasonic washing machine, you have ‘Eco Speed’ mode giving you three choices as to how you want to do your washing. Select ‘Normal Wash’ for efficient washing with normal energy consumption – or ‘Speed Wash’ for shorter washing times. The ‘Eco Wash’ is great if you want to take advantage of resource saving washing.

The lower the washing temperature, the more energy you save. That is why Panasonic washing machines feature the ‘15°C Wash’ cycle, which lets you wash your clothes at a super low 15°C. They come out perfectly clean and you save energy!

Because you do not want the washing machine to disturb you, Panasonic has specially engineered the Silent Arch design. Integrated into the sides of the appliance, the Silent Arch design effectively absorbs sounds which the machine naturally makes during the washing process, reducing harsh noise and vibrations. In addition, vibrations generated when the drum rotates are disbursed to ensure a quieter cycle. The newly designed Sazanami drum
features an interior with dimple shaped water spouts, ideal for thoroughly removing dirt while being kind to your clothes. The rounded edged dimples not only allow for fewer holes and less bumps than a conventional drum, they also prevent clothes from catching. This unique design also provides a high spin drying performance.

The capacity of the drum for the new NA-140VG3 Panasonic washing machine can handle up to 10kg, making it possible to wash up to 50 shirts. Plus, the wide door opening makes it easy for you to load and unload the machine. If you do not need the full capacity there is no need to worry about consumption. Thanks to the Perfect Sense technology, the amount of water and energy is automatically adapted to the amount of clothes. When you are tight on time, this washing machine features a ‘Quick 50’ programme and ‘Speed’ mode too.
Panasonic focuses on achieving long-term durability. To ensure this, they conduct a durability test with 5,000 wash cycle repetitions, a battery of other operating tests under conditions such as high temperature/high humidity and low temperature operation, and 24 hour continuous washing and high temperature cycles. Assuming that the average number of home laundry operations is 220 times a year, rigorous testing simulates about 23 years of use.


Ecobubble Technology

Ecobubble technology optimises the performance of your washing machine, creating a cushion of foam generated by a mixture of water, detergent and air before the washing cycle begins. The detergent bubbles penetrate your washing 40 times faster than traditional detergent, ensuring that the cleaning product is well dissolved  for a more powerful stain removing action – even in a cold wash!

Energy Savings Upto 70%

Due to the Samsung ecobubble washing machine being A+++ energy rated you could save upto 70% of energy costs through a combination of low washing temperatures and reduced cycle times. This equates to an overall saving of £220 over the life of the machine
