How we test

Our test is based on the standard AS/NZS 2040:1998, and was completed using machines filled with 3.5kg loads.

Overall score includes:
Dirt removal (50%): Calculated according to a formula in the standard, which reduces the score in proportion to the variability of dirt removal over a range of test swatches in the wash load.
Water efficiency (10%): Based on the amount of water used in the whole cycle, per kg of clothes.
Rinse performance (20%): Based on the amount of detergent residues after rinsing.
Spin efficiency (10%): Calculated from the amount of water remaining (per kg) in the damp clothes.
Gentleness (10%): Calculated from the amount of wear on easily frayed squares of cloth.

Noise (dBA) is the loudest reading (spin).
Wash cycle time (min) is the normal or regular cycle on the cold setting.
Annual running cost ($) assumes one “normal” wash cycle per day and electricity at 26c/kWh.

Price is from a December 2018 survey.
