Small washing machines - overview

Mini washing machineSmall washing machines have become very relevant in recent years. This is not surprising, because not every apartment has a place for standard dimensions, and this item is simply irreplaceable in any house.

Consider the Renova model WS - 15 T. She copes with 1.5 kg of laundry in one wash, and her weight is only 5 kg. Manufacturers have clearly designed a record model in the ratio of the mass of linen and the apparatus itself. Semi-automatic mini-spinning washing machines will never be able to please as much as automatic machines do. Let's try to deal with products such as mini washing machines.

It is probably wise to say that Europe and America are famous for their functionality of technology. Therefore, it is most likely that there a mini washing machine is installed not under the sink, but behind a stylish cabinet door. This can be confirmed by the presence of countertops with a sink under the washing machine.

What household appliances of this type are in stores:

  • in stores, you may come across a mini washing machine measuring 67 - 70 cm (option “for washing”);
  • and a 82 cm compact washing machine, which is easily mounted in furniture and repeats its contours.

To summarize

The washing machine is a great helper in the house and takes up little space. It can be mounted in furniture or installed under the sink for hands. It all depends on the ability to connect all the necessary communications in this place.

It also has a disadvantage, which is an expensive price. Mounting of such models takes place in a limited space and therefore is sometimes difficult. The fact is that such built-in appliances cannot be pushed on casters, as for example, with dishwashers. This is logical, because during spinning the device operates at high speeds and there is vibration.
