Choosing the right washing machine

Choosing the right washing machine

Choosing the right washing machine requires an awareness of a few key things.

Buying a new washing machine is an investment and, like any investment, it’s only natural to want to research your current living situation and make sure that whatever you’re buying is compatible with you and your environment.

Thinking about your load

How many people do you live with? How many outfits do you wear a week?

There is the temptation to try and stuff as much as you can into your washing machine but your washing machine should be no more than ¾ full if you want all of your clothes to be washed effectively.

But how can you tell when you’re in one of our showrooms what’s right for you? It’s not always easy to imagine how many clothing items could fit into a washing machine just by looking at it but if you think of it like one complete outfit should equal about a kilogram, (so we’re talking a top, trousers, underwear, socks etc.), that should give you some idea.

Our washing machine range offers load limits stretching from 2kg to 13kg loads so there’s something for every household size.

Thinking about the things you can’t plan for

When you’re buying a new washing machine, it’s easy to forget that there’s more to your washing machine needs than just capacity, there are also the things that you can’t always plan for. Bad weather is definitely one of them!

In Nigeria, when it rains, it pours and it’s reassuring to know that your washing machine is ready for such eventualities. That’s certainly the case with our Soakmaster Top Load Semi-Automatic (TLSA) range which features a unique rain and dry season spinning program that means that your clothes take a shorter time to dry regardless of the weather as well as its brilliant soak function to get rid of the toughest of stains.

Or anyone with kids will know that you can never tell when your kids will come home having stained the same school uniform that they need ready to wear again in a day or two. Our Front Load Automatic (FLA) range is perfect for these kinds of moments with its quick wash feature that was developed for lightly soiled clothes to be washed within a short period of time.  Similarly our FLA range also has a feature that’s perfect for fitness enthusiasts with our Sports Wash feature that washes and freshens up your sweaty workout clothes in just 25 mins.

Thinking about your peace of mind

Thermocool’s washing machines are designed to take as much stress as possible away from your day-to-day activities. Depending on what peace of mind means to you, each washing machine variant has its own appeal.

For example, our Top Load Automatic (TLA) washing machines offer time delay functionality meaning that you decide exactly what time you want your washing machine to start. What this means is that if you like your peace and quiet, you can pick a time when you’re not in the house to have the washing machine turn on.

Our TLA range includes washing machines ranging from 8kg carriers to 13kg carriers and many sizes in between.

Across most of our TLA range and some of our FLA range, like this HW50-1010A model, our child lock feature ensures that you don’t have to worry about your child’s natural curiosity causing themselves or your washing machine any harm.

Or with our Soakmaster (TLSA) range, each machine has a safety feature in place to ensure that electrical components are protected against water spillage and that your machine is also protected from the threat of rats.


So which Washing Machine will you go for?

The truth is, there’s no one size fits all washing machine (literally!) but luckily we’re not a one-size fits all kind of brand.

We appreciate that lifestyles and family sizes may vary from individual to individual and we look to ensure that no matter your washing machine requirements, we’ll have just the thing for you to make doing your laundry a breeze.

Why not check out our range of washing machines to see if we have what you’re looking for? 🙂
