There are few points over which you need to think while buying or maintaining a washing machine.
While going to buy a washing machine, you need to keep few things in mind. Firstly, keep in mind about the material of the tub (wash tub). The tub can be of stainless steel or plastic or porcelain-enamel. Stainless steel wash tubs are the expensive one. The plastic tubs are more durable than porcelain-enamel one. However, stainless steel wash tubs are the best among all because they are more durable and can give better spins. The second thing you must keep in mind is the wash setting. In most of the washing machines, you can get the options to wash the clothes like delicate wash or strong wash. You can change this using a rotary system or a touch pad system. The third thing is the spin cycle. Spin cycle represents the number of times your clothes are spinning to get dry. The more number of spinning, the better will it dries. Another important thing to keep in mind is the time delay and the pre soak. The time delay allows you to load the machine first and start it later.
