A washing machine, whether you’re tired of spending hours doing your laundry manually or hauling loads of laundry to the dry cleaner’s, can help save you valuable time and energy. In fact, washing machines are a must have in every home. However, sometimes it can be hard deciding on the right washing machine to buy because it is a significant investment and, understandably, you want to be sure that you’re definitely getting the right appliance for your home.

Modern Haier Thermocool Washers come with useful features that are specifically designed to help make your housework easy and quickly get you back to doing the things you love. From Mini washing machines to sleek, modern front-loading automatic styles and more, we want to make choosing the right washer for your laundry as easy as possible 🙂

With that being said, here’s a guide to some of the most popular washing machine types available.


Different types of Washing Machines

All washing machines, at their very core,  have the same purpose, which is to wash clothes but when you get into the details about the different types of washing machines available in the market, like the difference between top load and front load laundry machines, there are a few more things to consider.


Mini Washers

Mini Washers are entry-level machines that feature just a single tub for washing clothes and don’t come with separate drying functionality. With this kind of machine, you have to manually take your clothes out of the machine, squeeze out the water and dry them outside. Though drying of clothes can take longer with this type of machine, they use less water because they don’t require a continuous supply of water.

Mini Washers require less space and can be moved around easily, making it ideal for those who don’t have the luxury of a surplus amount of space at their disposal. It can also be run by a 1KVA generator due to its low power consumption.

While these machines are super easy and convenient to use, their most popular . People without access to a dedicated laundry space will fall in love with these compact appliances.

Top Loading Semi-Automatic Washing Machines

Top Load Semi-automatic washers are top loading machines that are equipped with twin tubs. One tub washes the clothes whilst the other does the drying. With this machine, unlike with its fully automatic counterparts (i.e. Front Load Automatic and Top Load Automatic washing machines) you can add more clothes during the wash process. However, you would need to manually move your clothes from the washing tub to the dryer.

These washers are a bit bigger but cost less than fully automatic machines and also require less maintenance. They are also a good option if you’re on a tight budget as they can run on a 1KVA generator.

Top Loading Automatic Washing Machines

The Top Load Fully Automatic Washing Machines, like the Mini Washer, features just a single tub. However, unlike the Mini Washer, the same tub can be used to both wash and dry your clothes. This means no manual intervention is needed on your part although it is worth noting that they also require a continuous flow of water to run.

A Top Load Fully Automatic laundry machine is also slightly more expensive than the Top Load Semi-Automatic Washing Machines but provides priceless convenience benefits – running along with minimal intervention required on your part.

Front Loading Automatic Washing Machines

Front load Automatic Washing Machines, like their Top Load Automatic counterparts, come with a single tub that performs all washing and drying functions.

Front load Automatic Washing Machines cannot be moved around neither can you add more clothes during the washing process however they are equipped with a tumble wash which gives your clothes a very thorough wash. Some models even feature a built-in heater for added convenience.

There are more cycle settings on these washers than on the semi-automatic washing machines and they are also known for their water efficiency.

Just load your dirty laundry, set the options and come back when the alarm beeps, to get clean, dry laundry.
