There are a lot of washing machines on the market but most of them are relatively loud especially if you don’t have a dedicated room for your laundry. We’ve compiled a list of the best quiet washing machines on the market that we think will help you have a quiet home but also get your clothes washed.

What to consider when buying a washing machine?

Most of us would like to keep the washing machine on the main floor of the house but until known the washing machines were so loud that we had to move them as far away as possible. While technology advances we can buy some of the quietest washing machines that produced up to date but we may advise you that you shouldn’t expect miracles. If you have the chance to have a dedicated place for your laundry we would still advise you to keep the washing machines there.

There are models that are so quiet that you can place them in your main floor for convenience and the quiet washing machines mentioned in our article are some of those but still keep in mind that they are not silent. That been said having a washing machine based on pulse technology will lead to far fewer decibel levels compared to regular washing machines so if you have the budget then they are a worthy investment to your home.

The washing machines are divided into front-loading washers and top loading washers. As their names suggest front loading machines load the clothes from their front side and they are the most common type of the two. Obviously, the choice is yours us sometimes a top loading machine may provide more convenience since most of their other attributes are the same.

If I had to buy a washing machine now I would opt for a front loading to be honest but we’ll leave that up to your preference. Keep in mind that apart from their design it is vital to pick a washing machine that consumes as low electricity and water as possible. Obviously larger capacity models will consume more power and need more water to clean their load. On the other hand, a larger capacity washing machine will have to run less washing cycles to clean the same amount of clothes compared to a smaller one so we would advise you to pick one that has a large drum that can accommodate your washing habits.

If your budget allows it you should go for an A+++ washing machine and in case you have lots of different clothes having different wash modes can be handy to take your time to pick the right model for your investment. The best models out there are made from companies likes Bosch, Siemens, Neff, LG, and Samsung. It is advisable to keep one from a reputable manufacturer so that you are safe to find replacement parts if needed along with a long warranty.
