Which SM are considered small
Be careful when choosing small machines: some manufacturers (or sellers) can cheat, calling the model small, considering only one parameter. For example, the user can confuse it with a narrow styaralka.
What is the difference? Small-size washing machines are designed for installation under the sink. Their parameters are completely different from the standard for height, depth and width. And the differences should be quite significant.
The parameters of the standard model are 85x60x58 cm (height - width - depth).
Parameters of the small-sized model: 67х50х40 (70х50х44) centimeters.
Compact models can be of various types: front and vertical loading, activator and drum, automatic and semi-automatic. The article will deal with automatic machines.
Advantages and disadvantages
If you appreciate every centimeter of the area, then a compact, small-sized washing machine with front loading is an ideal option for you.
This model is convenient to place under the sink, built into the locker in the bathroom or kitchen set. Looks like this installation is aesthetically pleasing, saves a lot of space.
Small size does not affect the quality of washing at all. Compact machines are equipped with the same functionality as standard ones, but they save water and electricity more.
What are the disadvantages of this choice:
- Due to a closer placement inside the parts wear out more quickly.
- The ease and absence of counterweights in CM contribute to increased vibration. Such stiralki can work more noisily than their counterparts.
- Small capacity. If in an ordinary car you can wash up to 7-8 kilograms of laundry (standard), then in a compact machine - a maximum of 5 kilograms.
- Overstated cost. Due to the compact dimensions, the manufacturer can increase the cost of AGR.
What to look for
When choosing a small washing machine, pay attention to such factors:
- Type of download. Before you make a purchase, determine where the machine will be installed. Depending on this, stop the selection on the front or vertical loading.
- Loading capacity. For a family, choose a maximum of 5 kilograms. Pay attention to the spinning power. The maximum for such models is 400-1000 revolutions.
- Material of the tank. It is recommended to purchase a stylalka with a stainless steel tank, since it is the most reliable and durable.
Take care of the correct connection. Installation is no different from a full-sized machine. But if you plan to place a CM under the sink, you need to take care of the cranes, which must come out of the wall.
