|How to choose a washing machine||
|Here are the top things you should consider when purchasing a washing machine. Whenever you buy a major appliance, you want to be sure you get the most for your money. These tips will help you get the right washer.
- When you buy new appliances, remember you are paying for more than just the appliance: you are paying for things like advertising, the cut the middleman gets, and a lot of other overhead. Buying from St. Louis Appliance Outlet gets you the best deal. We offer quality used, refurbished, appliances for prices you won't find anywhere else. At St. Louis Appliance Outlet, your dollar goes farther so you get the most for your money.
- Consider how much noise the washing machine makes and where in your home it will be located. Some washers may not be good on the second floor because of the vibration they create.
- Look to consumer magazines or Web sites for repair histories of particular brands. Your investment should last you years. If you know the difference between quality brands and lower quality brands you will be able to get the best washer at the lowest price, especially if you purchase a used model.
- Look at the insides carefully: Porcelain coating on the top surface is best. However, for the drum, stainless steel or plastic is preferable because a drum made from these materials won't scratch like a painted one will, or chip and then rust like porcelain coating.
- Save water and electricity with a front-loading model. These are also more gentle on clothes because they don't use an agitator. They also are typically quieter than top-loaders, and fit in smaller spaces. They require special detergent, however.
- Think about capacity - each brand has a different definition of high-capacity. Most front loading washers today hold 4 cubic feet or more of laundry.
