Time for a new washing machine? Well, the Boxing Day sales are upon us and it’s time to separate the loads – washing machines that are on sale, and those that aren’t. A number of retailers are splashing out plenty of big discounts on a range of brands this December, although trying to work out if you’re really getting a good deal or not can leave your head in a spin. To help you out, here are some of the best deals we’ve found.

The unit is equipped with Smart Check, which is an automatic error-monitoring system that’s designed to detect and diagnose problems via an app. It’s equipped with a Delay End function, so you can set a specific time you want the washer to finish the load, such as when you get home from work.

It’s 1077mm high, 686mm wide, and 744mm deep, so before you place this model in your shopping basket, make sure it fits in your designated laundry area, leaving space for the lid to open fully and to have enough space for a wall-mounted dryer above the open lid if you’re looking to add one.

While big flashy signs with discounted prices might be enticing, it would be wise to do your research before jumping into a purchase. Washing machines aren’t cheap and can differ from brand to brand. So, before settling down on a model, make sure it’s equipped with all the features you’re after and is the ideal size for your household. Additionally, ensure you shop around for the best deal.
