It is more expensive than others on our list, but we love that it's economical, quiet, and a premium brand. The extra-year's free manufacturers warranty sweetens the deal, too.
For those more on a budget, the Candy Rapido is a great choice - particularly if you want to get the washing done as quickly as possible!
10KG Washing Machine Reviews
If you're looking for a 10KG washing machine from a well-known brand - the Hotpoint Activecare fits the bill.
This 10KG washer is rated A+++ for energy-efficiency, thanks in part to its "Active Load" technology.
Active Load weighs your laundry and works out the optimum amount of time, energy, and water to use.
The model also features "ActiveCare" which removes 100 common stains at just 20 degrees which saves even more energy and gets clothes cleaner.
The one reservation I have about this (as discussed in this blog post) is that washing at a lower temperature leaves germs and bacteria.
However, this model also has "Steam Hygiene - a 20-minute programme which kills 99.9% of bugs and germs. It also leaves your clothes feeling fresh and ready-to-iron.
Of course, the one drawback is the added time. And this is something that marks this Hotpoint Activecare model down for me.
There is no half-load and the spin speed is only 800 RPM during the 30-minute quick wash. If you require a 60-degree programme, you can expect to wait 2 - 3 hours depending on the one chosen.
Still, this 10KG washer is easy-to-use, is great for big loads (including duvets), and from a reliable brand. At the price, it's definitely one for the shortlist.
Hoover are a popular washing machine brand in UK kitchens. But how does the "Dynamic Next" compare to the other 5 on our shortlist?
Like the others, this 10KG washer scores full-marks for energy-efficiency with an A+++ rating.
Unlike the Hotpoint model, you get the choice of three quick washes - 14-minutes, 30-minutes, and 44-minutes.
Perfect if you need a few items quickly for a night out, or something the kids forgot but need urgently!
There are 16 washing programmes including a 59-minute half-load, a 20-degree ActiveEco programme, and a baby clothes programme.
The Hoover Dynamic Next also has WiFi connectivity through the Hoover Wizard app. However, the majority of the 5000+ reviews are not very complementary, rating it just 1/5.
This may be to do with the WiFi / NFT settings, but I've yet to see a popular Smart App for washing machines!
If you can do without the smart connectivity, this is a energy-efficient washing machine from a trusted brand that's available at a great price.
Bosch is a premium washing machine brand that comes at a premium price. But is this washer worth almost twice the price as others on our list?
Well, for the extra money you get a 10-year guarantee on the motor and a 2-year manufacturers warranty (most only offer a single year for free).
As you would expect, it has the highest energy-efficiency rating (A+++) and it's incredibly quiet at just 75 dbs during it's 1400 RPM fast spin.
Others on out list are around 79db - 80db, which might be a factor if you have an open-plan kitchen.
There are 16 washing programmes including two reduced-load quick washes of 15-minutes and 30-minutes.
There's also a "Speed Perfect" setting which reduces the time of other cycles by 65%. This means you can wash up to 4kg of mixed load in just under 41-minutes. That's good news because some of the cycles can be a bit long - especially the "Eco Cycle" which is 3 hours+.
However, you do get a lot of washing programmes and nifty extras with this one. There's an Allergy Plus setting to kill bugs and bacteria (including Coronavirus), a sports setting, and an innovative "AutoStain" programme. You can select the stain from the menu and the automatically senses the fabric type and adjusts the time and temperature to match.
Another feature that sets this one apart is an auto drum-cleaning reminder and programme that keeps everything hygienic.
This Bosch Washing Machine is easy to load and unload with a super-wide 171-degree door opening and an interior light that ensures no smalls are left behind!
It's also the first Smart Washing Machine I've seen that people actually like! The Home Connect App scores 4.4 out of 5 on the Apple App Store.
In summary, this is a very quiet, energy-efficient washing machine with a great range of washing programmes. If the price is in your budget - it's worth a closer look.
We round out our list with another 10KG washing machine available at a great price - the Candy Rapido.
As the name suggests, the Candy Rapido is designed to save you as much time as possible when doing the laundry.
It has not one but SIX quick wash options all under an hour - 14-mins, 29-mins, 30-mins, 39-mins, 44-mins, and 59 mins.
There's also a germ-killing steam cycle which freshens your clothes and cuts down your ironing time.
With a maximum A+++ score for energy-efficiency and the fastest 1600 RPM spin speed, there's a lot to like about this Candy model.
One area that doesn't score highly is the "Simply Fi" smart app that goes with this washing machine.
Over 1,600 users score the Candy App just 1.6 out of 5 on Apple's App Store and cite connectivity problems.
However, with 15 + 1 Programmes (the "1" is a sports cycle you may/may not be able to download from the Smart App....) you get a lot of features at a great price point.
