Laundry technology has come on in leaps and bounds in recent years, but it’s not something most people even think about, until it’s suddenly time to replace their existing machine.
If your old faithful washing machine is on its last legs, a silver lining is that this is a great opportunity to upgrade to a better one. A new appliance can save you money on energy bills, give better cleaning results, and make sure your clothes last for longer.
AO is having a big promotional drive on laundry and kitchen appliances as it wants to educate us about the benefits of upgrading. After all, if you haven’t bought a new machine in a decade, you may not be aware of the great benefits one can bring. There are some good reasons to trade up even if your current machine isn’t approaching the end of its life cycle.
Have a look at this LG machine; it’s got some features that could put your old washing machine to shame. Here are five benefits you could get from it…
LG F4V709WTSA Smart Washing Machine with ezDispense™ auto dosing
1. Improved cleaning
This LG is a great example of what a modern washing machine can do. It gives perfect results every time thanks to its headline feature, ezDispense™ auto dosing. This uses a reservoir of detergent from which it syphons exactly the right amount for each wash – there’s enough in the tank for 35 washes before you need to top up. TurboWash™ tech sprays water in all directions as well, so it’s like your clothes get a shower and then a bath; every inch of fabric is cleaned.
The machine can also get your clothes more hygienically clean. Steam can be used to kill germs on your laundry, while in Baby Care and Allergy modes, 99.9% of allergens are removed – this is officially approved by the British Allergy Foundation.
2. More time saved
The super efficient washing programmes of modern machines are so fast you may be surprised. The TurboWash™ setting here gives a full clean in just 59 minutes. And if you’re really in a hurry there’s a 14-minute quick wash – a possible life saver if you’re staring at an evening out with nothing to wear. You can also save time on ironing, since the handy Steam+™ programme turns out clothes with fewer wrinkles. Who doesn’t long to do less ironing?
You can also save time by starting your washing load while you’re at the shops. With app control from anywhere thanks to the LG machine’s built-in Wi-Fi, you can start and monitor your wash from anywhere, and have the programme finished ready for you when you get home.
3. Kinder to clothes
AI DD™ is LG’s 3rd-generation beltless Direct Drive. And what does that mean? For you, clothes that last longer. LG’s AI is drawn from the data from 20,000 wash loads and means the machine will automatically adjust the machine’s settings to each load. The steam-based programmes are also kind to fabrics, keeping them softer and more comfortable on your skin than ever.
4. Saves you money
With energy costs rearing up alarmingly, it’s good to know that new washing machines are more energy efficient than ever. This one could reduce overall energy consumption by 15%, and water consumption by a massive 40%. [Need a source for this claim please, just got it off the AO website].
Something else that’s changed are the energy efficiency labels on appliances, with the system made much simpler. This one is rated B but don’t worry; that is the equivalent of A+++ on the old system.
5. Huge capacity
This machine has a 9kg drum capacity, which is enough for the average wash in a four-person household. However the large drum size doesn’t mean any extra bulk on the outside. That’s because the Direct Drive drum doesn’t move about as much when spinning as an older machine’s, so no extra wiggle room is required. So you’ll get through your laundry pile faster but you won’t need any additional space.
