For a long time we chose a model with top loading, the other does not fit in any way. We settled on this Zanussi. Electrolux was not pulled in terms of money, but here it is almost the same, but cheaper. It erases perfectly, it makes moderate noise for a vertical line, it doesn’t jump much. Just what the doctor ordered.

They say — China, but we bought and rejoice. Yes, it makes noise, like all verticals. Unless there will be quieter models with inverter motors, but there the price tag is completely different. Our new machine washes well, we hardly turn on the spin cycle to the full — it vibrates. It takes 800-1000 rpm.

For us — a very compact and economical machine, stood in a narrow space between the wall and the sink. We use almost all programs, as there are some nuances. You can quickly freshen up your clothes with the dry laundry steaming mode: all light foreign odors disappear. If you press pause and wait for the key to disappear from the display, you can add laundry during the wash.

The machine is excellent, with a sufficient range of programs, for night washing we use the “very quiet” or “stop with water in the tank” options, when the high-speed spin is canceled, there is some water left in the tank to prevent overdrying of the laundry, and the drum occasionally rotates to there were no wrinkles in the clothes. In the morning we turn on the drain, take out the laundry.
