Before opening a detergent pack, before sorting laundry, before touching the washing machine ON button, one important decision for a WashWise laundry is what washing machine to buy.


The washing machine is the centre of the modern laundry. It provides the mechanical energy needed to agitate and spin clothing, and to pump water. It plays a vital role in protecting your household’s investment in clothing, towels and bed linen. 97% of Australian households have a washing machine*.


Choosing a washing machine is obviously an important but infrequent decision. There can appear to be a myriad of choices when buying a new washing machine. Top loader or front loader? What size? What features? The range of options can seem overwhelming.
