Washing Machine Prices
Let’s face it, for most of us, cost is a big factor when making purchases – especially with something like a washing machine. But what represents good value and what’s simply cheap? This section of our buyers guide has all the answers.
Machines for Every Budget
Washing machines range from around £200 for a basic model, up to £700 or more for something with additional features.
There are also some machines that cost less than £200 – with many of these offering extremely good value for money.
It’s important to remember that price is only one factor. Cheaper machines are more reliable these days, especially if you go for a reputable brand with a decent warranty. On the other hand, if you do a lot of washing and need particular features, a more expensive model might suit your needs better.
The most important thing is to set a budget and stick to it.
What you get for Your Money
There are a number of factors that affect the price of a washing machine, but in general, a more expensive machine will have at least one of the following:
- A larger drum
- A faster spin speed
- More features
- More programme options
- Better energy and/or water efficiency
The quality and reputation of the brand, place of manufacture and attractiveness of the design all play a part as well.
Sales and Promotions
If your old washing machine has broken down, you may not have the luxury of waiting for a better price, but it’s worth checking what offers are available.
Most retailers have promotions of one sort or another all year round.
As well as simple money off deals, it’s also worth keeping an eye open for promotions such as cashbacks and trade-ins.

RRP isn’t Everything
The actual price of the appliance isn’t the only thing to consider.
Buying a machine with a lengthy warranty means you can be sure you won’t have to buy another one any time soon, which means you can save money long term. There are also running costs to consider – going for a more efficient model can help save money on electricity and water bills.
