WASHING MACHINE PRICES
For most of us, the 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 £800 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 now more reliable, 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.

WHAT YOU GET FOR YOUR MONEY
Several factors 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 sometimes including Wi-Fi
• More programme options
• Better energy efficiency
• Improved water efficiency
• Quieter running noises
• Attractive appearance
• Touch controls
The quality and reputation of the brand, place of manufacture, and attractiveness of the design all affect the price.

SALES AND PROMOTIONS
If your old washing machine has broken down, you may not be able to wait for a better price, but it’s worth checking what offers are available.
Most retailers run a promotion 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. This is also a great way of disposing of your old appliance too.
RRP ISN’T EVERYTHING
The price of the appliance isn’t the only thing you should consider.
Buying a machine with a long warranty means you can be sure you won’t have to buy another one any time soon. This means you can save money long-term. There are also running costs to consider, so choosing a more efficient model can help save money on electricity and water bills.
Remember to take charges for delivery, installation and removing your old machine into account when comparison shopping. All washing machines ordered online from www.euronics.co.uk are delivered free of charge. Other retailers may have a price threshold or charge for delivery as standard.
