Capacity is a simple but important consideration for washing machines: the bigger the drum, the more you can wash. As a guide, 1 kg is roughly equivalent to an outfit including a pair of trousers, a top, underwear and socks. High capacity machines allow you to wash less frequently, cutting down on energy bills and environmental impact.

Ranging from smaller 5 kg models to those with impressive 12 kg load sizes, we have a washing machine to suit every size of household. If you have a larger family or regularly do larger loads, try a high capacity drum. If you live in a flat or run a smaller household, consider a 5 kg or 6 kg-capacity machine.
