Budget Washing Machine

What would you consider a good washing machine for a bachelor ya light usage. I know LG AI DD Front load are the best, but buying a 100k+ machine that will be used about once or twice a month seems overkill. Should be around 40k max. TIA.

You wont get value for money if you buy a smaller washer. Theres one i bought for my mokoro back at home, its 85k and washes 10kgs. It has a spinner and can 98% dry the clothes.

Depends on the type also. Unataka front loading ama top loader? Front loader ni better since it automates all the washing process but iko slower and more expensive. Kuna top loaders cheap esp Mika na Ramptons, they are quick but are semi-automatic
Unaweza pata a Beko front loader pale Samsutech for 64K ama ununue ex-uk

The best washing machines are LG, hands down. You will realize a washing machine is not just a washing machine the moment you buy a high end machine!

Power consumption
The durability of your clothes
Water usage
Soap usage
Efficiency - LG AI DD can do laundry in 39 minutes!!
Motor/pulley system
Noise
9kg and above machines can wash duvets. Best machine size is 12kgs

and many more reasons.

For your 40k budget, you can get a Solstar or TCL washing machine, but nothing compared to LG.

BTW hii Sunday kuna offer poa sana Carrefour Black Friday. Be on the lookout.

Kwa washing machine hakuna cha njia mkato ni uchukue Bosch, LG ama Samsung lakini LG sanasana na pesa uweke double hiyo 40k otherwise ukiendea sijui hizi hotpoint ramtons tcl ujue durabilty ni kucheza karata.

LG top load
Reliable and affordable

The top-load they have in stock is around 95k. Not affordable.

Wale tunatumia Mika…top load …tukae wapi

Tukinunua machine wote where will broke women get work? Get two mamas to be doing the work at least kwao kunuke kitunguu.

You may even get your rungu washed in the process.

Wewe na Atwoli mnafaa mpigwe mangumi na masweep juu kazi yenu ni keeping the poor people poor.

Sio matatu industry… hapana usiguze they will lose jobs…

Sio tea industry… hapana usilete machine, they will lose jobs…

Sio kuosha nguo… if we were to listen to you and Atwoli , Kenyans would still be lining up in town every day to pay their electric and water bills because the asshole cashiers of old need jobs. And there would be no mpesa.

Umepewa advise tosha. Bigger is better. Kuna kanguo kanaitwa duvet…

Unless uingie used market sasa, upitie pale kwa ma-Expats FB group unaeza angukia machine like new ya LG.

Ala, kwani zilipanda bei, got mine for like 15k but that was more than a decade ago.
Anyway better to buy nondescript brands like von or mica then.
For a bachelor you just need something small that can be used twice a week. Maneno ya kuosha duvets ni theory, practically those things tunapeleka dhobi once or twice a year and that’s it.
Maneno ya spinner pia lenga, no sense wasting electricity drying clothes na jua iko…

Hii Mika inadhalauliwa hapa nimekaa nayo 3 years na ndio intaumika kwa kufua nguo zote na hajawai fanya any, hata hiyo kelele wanasema ni very minimal sio kama zingine sauti ni kama kisiagi na kumumunya Tokens kama fwakin. Pricey is also not necessarily the best quality

Enda opalnet kuna LG 7kg ya 73k. Hii kitu itakuserve for life…

Actually ukipata brand iko na 6kg jua iko sufficient for a bachelor’s needs. Ramtons wako nayo @ 46k.

DONT BUY TOP LOAD itakuzeeshea nguo

DONT BUY Semi automatic… juu otherwise ka unataka kazi fua tu ka chokosh.

DONT BUY any machine ya samsung…hio.belt itakatika na utalia saana.

Hawa watu wa 9kg/12kg hawajui kitu wanasema.

One of the most underrated household electronic. Don’t look back.

Ni gani poa na maji ya borehole yenye iko na chumvi kiasi

Wewe ndio hujui kitu unasema. For washing machibes big is always better. Akikaa kaa lazima atanunua duvet. Mambo ya samsung belt kukatika… hio ni technology ya zamani buda boss. Siku hizi ni magnets, direct drive.

Mr Thirimaii hizi swali nyeti mtu huuliza shopkeeper hapo kwa duka. Hapo Galleria mall ama two rivers.

Furthermore Kenya is a highly advanced country, siku hizi kuna borehole filters, kwani unaishi ushago gani hio buda boss?

Kenya imeshinda hata mzungu countries in certain areas. The year is 2022 not 1993.

What do you mean atanunua duvet? Kwani mse anapiga hesabu za washing machine bado anaeza kua anatumia blanketi za uzi?

Alafu duvet ua haioshwi kila siku ka boxer. On average utapata amekua akiosha 3-4 times a year.

For a bachelor on average nguo total mwisho wa wiki hukua shati 5 na maybe trousers 2 or 3. Ongeza tu vest na socks. 6-7kg is enough.

P.s. samsung mob bado zinatumia belts in 2022.

A big washing machine has a setting for those ‘shati 5 na maybe trousers 2 or 3’.

Na hata ukitaka ipunguze amount of time, stima na maji for a super light load, iko na hio setting.

Iko na hadi setting ya kuosha bra pekee yake na delicate handwash objects like lingerie. A super light load.

Na kama uko na watoto kumi kama @PHARMACY na wote huwa wanakojoa usiku, the machine can handle all that Kamba urine and farts. A super heavy load.

Engineer huwa wamefikiria hii mambo yote. They know that a 10 or 12kg machine can be purchased by a single person who wants to be future proof. They know that everyone has a light load on some days and a heavy wash load on others.

They anticipate all these scenarios. And the more money you pay, the more options you get, the more durable the machine.

In fact the logic is opposite to what you are thinking : the cheaper or smaller the machine the fewer the settings. The larger the machine the more the options. A 6kg machine might not have a setting for a fast , light wash or an eco wash to conserve power. A large machine can even wash a single jacket. Na samsung ziko perfect, wacha porojo.
