Slim washing machine for a small flat: how to choose the best one?

For some time now, slim washing machines have become increasingly popular with users. They are a great idea for a small flat or a bathroom designed in such a way that it is difficult to fit all the necessary appliances and accessories inside. If you are looking for a high-quality and efficient slim washing machine in which to wash your hiking clothes, it is worth taking a look at the extensive Electrolux range.

Features of slim washing machines

If you have a large and spacious bathroom, you are unlikely to have any problems choosing a washing machine. However, more problems arise if you don’t have the space to accommodate a standard washing machine. In such situations, slim washing machines are the perfect solution – these appliances are narrower than traditional washing machines, so you get much more freedom in positioning the washing machine in the room. Sometimes they are slightly taller than standard models, but they always have a significantly reduced depth. Depending on the manufacturer and the equipment chosen, the depth of a slim washing machine can be as low as around 40 cm. Contrary to what you may think, slim washing machines do not necessarily have to have a very small capacity. The smallest models are compact washing machines for singles or couples and have a capacity of 4 kg, but in the Electrolux range you will also find washing machines with a capacity of, for example, 6 km or 8 kg, which can easily meet the needs of a family of several people. Slim washing machines usually have a slightly lower spin speed than traditional washing machines, down to 1000 rpm. As a result, clothes are not damaged during spinning and are perfectly prepared for drying. Last but not least, slim washing machines perform very well in terms of electricity consumption. It all depends on the model of the washing machine, of course; you will find precise information on this on the energy label of the appliance.

Slim washing machines from Electrolux

Electrolux offers a wide range of slim washing machines. If you are looking for a machine for singles or couples, theSensiCare 600 4 kg washing machine is a great choice. This appliance adjusts the duration of the programme according to the amount of clothes and, on top of this, guarantees early soaking and even distribution of the laundry in the drum for high washing performance. A recommended model with a slightly larger capacity, on the other hand, is the SensiCare 600 6 kg washing machine. This is also an excellent model with, among other things, an anti-allergy plus steam programme, which removes bacteria from clothes by combining the action of steam and an excellent wash programme.

It is worth mentioning another model that stands out for its very large capacity – especially for a slim washing machine. This is the SensiCare 600 AutoDose 9 kg washing machine. This is a great idea even for families with several people who need to wash often and a lot. Despite this large capacity, the appliance is characterised by very economical operation. First and foremost, you should take note of the washing machine’s energy class A – so you can be sure that, in this respect, the appliance is one of the best on the market. However, this is not the only thing that makes it an energy-efficient washing machine – the SensiCare system adjusts the duration of the programme according to how large a load is in the drum. Depending on this, the programme automatically adjusts the water and energy to prevent the wash from running too long. What’s more, this is how the SensiCare 600 AutoDose 9 kg washing machine will keep fabrics looking new for up to twice as long. The intelligent AutoDose system, in turn, is responsible for determining the precise amount of detergent and softener needed. In this way, the programme not only protects the fabric from wearing out too quickly, thus extending their lifespan, but at the same time saves these preparations, which will prove to be cost-effective in the long run. Finally, the smart functions included in the appliance cannot be overlooked. The MyElectrolux app allows you to remotely control your washing machine (as well as other appliances from the brand) using your smartphone. The Your Advisor function is built into the programme – so you can get expert advice on, for example, the best way to wash your clothes. And the MyFavourites function is used to save the settings you use most often – making it very quick to use the washing machine.

How to choose the best Electrolux slim washing machine?

If you’re wondering how to choose a good washing machine, there are certainly some important factors to consider when making your decision. Among the absolutely key ones is the capacity of the appliance. This determines how much clothing you can wash at one time. Obviously, the more people live in a household, the larger the capacity of the washing machine should be. Another important element is the energy class. The higher the energy class the appliance has, the less electricity it uses during operation. In the long term, this can mean considerable savings for your wallet. The spin speed helps to remove the moisture from the laundry – this is also an important parameter. In addition to this, you should also pay attention to the various additional functions. Depending on the model, the choice of functions can vary greatly. While slim washers may sometimes have fewer additional functions than traditional washing machines, Electrolux still offers a host of additional systems to make every wash easier and more effective. These include systems such as automatic programme selection and detergent and water adjustment.

The slim washing machine is an excellent choice, especially because of its size – you can easily fit it into even the smallest bathroom. The SensiCare 600 AutoDose 9kg washing machine is perfect for a small home and has a wealth of features to help you wash clothes efficiently and effectively every day. If you’re in need of a small but highly efficient washing machine, be sure to check out the Electrolux range and one of our most recommended models, the EW6SN226SPI.
