Hot water wash has its own benefits like increased detergent penetration, better removal of stains, and elimination of germs from laundry.
This post brings you the best washing machine with a built-in heater.
Almost every front loader comes with a heater but not all top load washers come with heaters but we still managed to find a few, check these below in our list.
Can I get a built-in heater in a semi automatic washing machine?
A semi automatic washer does not come with any advanced feature like heater or hot water wash program. It can only do the basic job of washing and drying. Only fully automatic washing machines can have heaters inside them.
In our list, the first one is this Whirlpool washing machine. Whirlpool washers are budget friendly machines. This comes with the capacity of 7.5kg ideal for a family of 4 members. Features 12 wash programs – daily wash, heavy wash, delicates, whites, stainwash, anti bacterial wash, eco wash, woollen wash, bedsheet, rinse + spin, etc.
Very few Top Load washers come with built-in heaters, this is one of them. You can heat the water in 3 varying levels – warm, hot, allergen free. The maximum temperature during hot water wash is 60 degree celsius. Tough stains got from oil, grease, ketchup can be easily removed with its hot water wash. At high temperature it is easy to remove stains.
It’s hot catalytic wash first soaks clothes in detergent water solution before starting the agitation process. It can clean stains with just using 1/3rd of water compared to a normal wash program. You know the problem of hard water in our country and its effect on washing clothes.
To cater this problem, Whirlpool brings you hard water wash technology using which you can wash clothes in both hard or soft water.
To amaze you once again we have got a top load washer with heater inside from popular Indian brand IFB. It is priced very well with the washing capacity of 6.5kg. It is ideal for a family of 2-3 members. If you are tight on budget but still want a washer with hot water wash then go for this IFB washer.
It features 8 wash programs like quick wash, normal wash, wool wash, etc. Other features include triadic pulsator, aqua energie, lint filter, 3D wash, smart sense technology.
Starting with the Aqua Energie feature, this is a small device inside of the washer which helps in dissolving the detergent in water. And its Triadic pulsator wash tries to clean the laundry better. It works in 3 steps, first is to eliminate dirt from the core, second is to remove dirt from the sides, and third is to flush out the residue.
To catch lint the default lint filter is used. As always IFB is giving a complete 4 year warranty on this product.
To bring you a washer with heater we have listed this Samsung washing machine but do note that it is a front loader and almost every front loader comes with hot water wash.
This is high on the price segment even at a 6.5kg washing capacity, this can only cater to a family of 2-3 members. But you also get better cleaning, and advanced features. Samsung uses ceramic heaters in their machines, these last longer and does not rust due to the humidity or filth coming from the laundry.
Use the regular wash setting and get your clothes clean and dry after 90 minutes. Do not have time then use the quick wash program which will clean and dry your clothes within 15 minutes. This washer saves water and is power efficient that is why it comes with the tag of 5 star energy rating.
Do note to clean the washer using the tub clean feature once in a month or after every 50 wash cycles. This uses hot water to clean the inside of the drum. You can also combine the cleaning process with a commercial cleaning agent available online.
If you prefer Bosch then you got one.This is a front loader from Bosch and it comes with a hot water wash program. Its build quality is sturdy and durable. There are a whopping 15 wash programs to choose from. These are designed in mind considering the different fabric and use cases.
Common wash programs include the quick wash and the daily wash program. If in a hurry the quick wash as the name suggests will wash your laundry within a few minutes whereas the normal wash takes longer time and can take upto 1 hour.
If you are getting low water pressure then no worries, it can work even with low water pressure and will provide excellent results in terms of washing. I love how quiet Bosch washers are. The body is designed in such a way that it compensates the noise and vibration caused due to spinning of the washer drum.
Do you know that you cannot remove or add clothes in between of a cycle in front loaders. This washer allows you to put or remove laundry in early stages of a wash cycle.
