The Best Quiet Washing Machines for Your Home

One of the ‘must-have’ appliances in nearly every home is the washing machine. But when on its spin cycle, it can also be one of the loudest and most annoying domestic machines, dominating the soundscape of the whole house, affecting concentration and raising stress levels. How important is it to you to have a quiet washing machine?

According to the latest evidence from the Quiet Mark National Noise Report, 82% of us say it matters how loud an appliance is when purchasing one for their home. So, when it comes to replacing your old washing machine, practicing due diligence couldn’t be more important. Quiet Mark takes on the science so you don’t have to.

Quiet Mark holds sound emission acoustic data on the vast majority of washing machines currently available on the market and evaluates which models are the quietest, moderately loud and the down-right noisy. Only those machines at the quietest end of the sound spectrum are eligible to hold a Quiet Mark – so when you see the distinct purple Q on a washing machine, you can be confident it’s one of the quietest and will be an appliance you’ll want to share your home with. And remember, you can easily ‘check it’s quiet before you buy it’ on – your free to use online sourcing directory.
