12 of the quietest washing machines

Choosing the quietest washing machines

Long gone are the times when affection was caused by the fact that the washing machine fills itself with water, takes the powder, washes, rinses, drains, squeezes and beeps, they say, remove everything! Nowadays, the requirements for automatic home cleaners have increased markedly. The quality of washing should be higher, time and power consumption less, wear of linen is minimal, and the output is almost dry, but without folds, residual stains and unwanted odors. No, not all! Another process should occur with minimal noise and attract attention only when the "sovereign" of home appliances deigns to evaluate the final result. It is for this reason that our today's rating will be dedicated to the best silent washing machines-automatic!

Why are some washing machines quieter?

Reducing the volume can provide several factors:

Inverter motor

Brushless design of the electric motor of the washing machine is devoid of rubbing parts, has a high efficiency, increased resource. And in combination with an almost instantaneous exit to the set speed and their most accurate maintenance, a significant reduction in noise background and more economical energy consumption is achieved.

Direct drive

The absence of a belt and additional moving parts undoubtedly contributes to the quiet operation of the washing machine. But it is not worth overly flattering. Much depends on the class of the washing machine, the quality and properties of components, the assembly in the end. In other words, in theory, direct drive is good, in practice, you can find many models with a belt that have at least, and sometimes more outstanding performance.


For some reason, there is a perception that full-size (85x60x60 cm) washing machines are suitable only for a large family. In reality, this is the ideal format for quiet operation, thanks to better stability and less inclination of the washing machine to vibration. In addition, they erase such machines better due to the increased surface of the drum, and it is not necessary to load to the maximum. True, all this makes sense only if there is free space for installation. It's okay, there is an average format (40-45 cm). But the "super-slim" models are usually noisier than the rest.

Method of loading laundry

Other things being equal, frontal washing machines are quieter. Plus, they are vertical in space saving, and the mythical increase in reliability due to the drum fastening on two semi-axes is more of a marketing trick. The problem with top-loading models is a closer arrangement of the nodes, which is why the machine is more susceptible to vibration. The washing process is usually quite comfortable, but the low spinning noise is almost an impossible dream. Although there are exceptions.

61 268

There are plenty of Electrolux top-loading models, but the EWT 1567 VIW washing machine can really please the owners with a quiet job. To a large extent, thanks to the high quality inverter motor at the base of the drive. The main wash cycle occurs almost silently with only 47 dB, but the spinning process is heard - 77 dB.

It works quieter than the old front-end washer, but it is more compact and interferes more. The parking drum is not always perfectly accurate, but not annoying. At first, they did not understand TimeManager, but now they figured out, we use.
Whirlpool TDLR 60230
33 850

Really silent washing machine from the famous brand Whirlpool. The model is very tech and advanced. And although it is possible to meet both very positive and negative reviews on the network, it’s not always worthwhile to blindly trust the latter, because sometimes there is a feeling that some are the result of the authors' wild imagination or unwillingness to read the instructions.

By the way, a tip: for the most part, top-loaded machines may not completely wash out the powder and it is more convenient to use easier water-soluble liquid products.

However, from the lyrics to the technical aspects. What is important to us? Noise level. Here his figures are encouraging - 51 dBA for washing, 72 for spinning. Good reasons for this are highly efficient inverter motors and innovative ZEN technology or simply direct drive. The maximum possible load of linen: cotton - 6 kg, synthetic - 3, wool - 1. Spin at a speed of up to 1200 rpm. Going model in Slovakia, warranty period - 1 year.

Main advantages:
  • The 6th SENSE technology, which adapts through the sensor system the costs of water, energy and time, depending on the volume of linen, the properties of the fabric;
  • 14 programs, including Eco, Fast 30ˊ, Jeans, Office wear;
  • Option Color 15 ° (preservation of the brightness of the colors of synthetic fabrics);
  • Fresh Care function - if the laundry was not immediately removed, every 15 minutes it is “agitated” to preserve freshness, prevent the appearance of unpleasant odors, the formation of folds;
  • Smooth opening of the drum leaves.
  • High price;
  • Adjustable height only front legs.
9.6 / 10
Good-quality washing machine with a good modern design. It works really quietly, especially in comparison with the previous vertikalka, who died in the Bose. How do you like it, modes are not very many, but everything is on the case.

Relatively inexpensive washing machine made in Russia with good characteristics for its price. Candy GVF4 137TWHN / 2 differs in compact dimensions (depth 40 cm), moreover, the maximum load of the whole 7 kg. The noise level parameters are 51 for washing and 76 dB for spinning. The value is worthy, although there is reason to suspect the manufacturer in a slight exaggeration.

A good set of additional functions: delayed start up to 24 hours, Hygiene +, Easy ironing, Control lock, as well as the ability to select the degree of contamination, temperature and spin speed (maximum 1300 rpm).

Samsung WW70K62E00W
32 126

Not only quiet, but also a very practical washing machine from the Korean brand. Produced in Russia, but with the quality of the order and service at the height. Plus impressive features and functionality. And since we are important indicator of the level of noise, with this, too, not bad - 54/73 dB (A).

WW70K62E00W - medium size device (lid depth 45 cm). At the same time loading decent - 7 kg, the maximum extraction - 1200 rpm. Bright "chips" of this washing machine - the AddWash function, which allows you to add forgotten clothes after the start of the cycle, and the generator of the active ecobubble ™ foam. The control is electronic with a touch panel, for which a lock against accidental pressing is provided very appropriately.

A set of programs is really relevant and, in addition to standard modes, includes: Baby and Dark clothes, Fast (15 minutes), Eco drum cleaning, etc. Among the options: Rinse +, Pre-wash and Intensive wash.

Main advantages:
  • Motor Digital Inverter;
  • Effective stain removal thanks to Bubble Soak technology;

  • The price is not the most democratic for the Russian assembly;
  • Doubtful efficiency of steam function.
9.7 / 10

A true representative of the premium segment with the corresponding elite status of the price tag. What can be expected from a washing machine of this level?

Miele WDB 020 W1 Classic
59 900

Gorgeous washing machine from the famous brand from Germany. The model is relatively simple. It is not worth looking for any steam functions, some exotic programs to increase their total number (which, as we know, does not always turn into quality) and other often useless functional “frills” supposedly to improve washing. Miele without superfluous tricks provides excellent results.

Now about the noise. WDB 020 W1 Classic is very quiet. The numbers with decibels are not indicated anywhere, but the happy owners of this product of German engineering do not need them. After all, everything is great and without additional measurements! And this is easily explained by the excellent quality of assembly and materials, the perfect layout and balancing of components and parts, the presence of high-class, economical, powerful and almost silent ProfiEco motor.

The following characteristics complement the overall picture quite well: power consumption - A +++, load from 1 to 7 kg. Produced model in Germany. Warranty - 2 years.

Main advantages:
  • Corporate cellular drum (maximum efficiency in the absence of a negative impact on the linen);

9.9 / 10
Finally we got this car. For Miele, the price is normal. And as for the quality of washing and minimal noise, they have never seen anything better. Well, that did not lead to the Asian branding brands.
Electrolux EW8F3R28S
73 900

Do you want a truly high-quality, quiet and reliable Electrolux washing machine? Then it is better to choose a full-size version.It so happened that the budget narrow models for our market are made in Ukraine, the build quality is rather average, the characteristics do not always correspond to those stated. Devices of the same standard dimensions are collected on the territory of the EC, as for themselves. Such are the European "partners".

The considered option belongs to the advanced series PerfectCare 800, made in Poland. The maximum load - 8 kg, revolutions per minute on the spin - 1200. With regards to a comfortable noise level, the indicators are very good - 50/73 dB. The main merit of this high-end inverter motor with permanent magnets. Washing class - A, energy efficiency A +++ (- 40%). Electronic control, there is a multifunctional LED-display of a decent size.

Main advantages:
  • The UltraCare system (before washing, the detergent is completely dissolved in water and fed into the drum already in a liquid form);
  • 59-minute low-temperature program without harm to clothing;
  • SensiCare - optimization of water consumption, energy and cycle time depending on the load;
  • Anti-Allergy Vapor - a combination of steam and intensive washing for effective control of pathogens;
  • EcoTimeManager function.
  • Great price;
  • Only 1 year warranty.
9.8 / 10
The device is expensive, but very cool. There is a feeling of some kind of solidity. I hope to serve will be long. To the quality of washing the slightest claim. And, of course, impressive very quiet operation in all modes.
30 300

For a full-size version, this washing machine is relatively inexpensive. Nevertheless, the functionality makes the model very seriously. Yes, and in the design of the Koreans did not disappoint. As for the dimensions, the depth along the cover is 56 cm, taking into account the protruding door - 59. The assembly, of course, is Russian.

So, the noise level is 53/74 dB. Which is quite good. Its role is clearly played by the inverter type motor and partly direct drive. You can load up to 9 kg of laundry in the car. A set of 14 programs can satisfy a variety of user requests. Take, for example, such as "Removing stains", "Silent", "Sports", "Hygiene", "Clothing of the child." It is possible to adjust the cycle with the help of additional functions: "Without folds", "Rinse +", "Reduction of time", "Add laundry".

Main advantages:
  • Convenient touchscreen display;
  • Boot indication;
  • Spin at speeds up to 1,400 rpm;
  • Smart Diagnosis and Tag On technology for contactless communication with NFC smartphones;
  • Drum cleaning function.
  • Noisy operation of the valve bay and pump;
  • No freshening steam (controversial minus).
9.7 / 10
Not LG fans, but the old car suddenly decided to leave us, but in terms of price-performance-quality, this model turned out to be the most optimal. It works well, washes well, noise is not much.
Whirlpool FSCR 90420
40 790

Modern and quite nice model from one of the oldest American brands, a pioneer in the production of washing machines. Whirlpool FSCR 90420 is made in Italy, hence a higher-quality assembly than the Slovak counterparts. Drive - straight with high quality quiet and economical engine. And this could not affect the performance of the noise level - 49/69 dB.

Quiet work contribute to the size. The format is full-size with a body depth of 64 cm. As a result, if you install correctly, you should not worry about any vibration and “walking” around the room. Downloading up to 9 kg of dry laundry is suitable even for a large family, squeezing - 1400 rpm may well become an incentive not to “bother” with the purchase of a tumble dryer. Washing programs - 10, including "Children's things", "Colored fabrics" and an express cycle of 30 minutes.

Main advantages:
  • Low energy consumption (class A +++);
  • Snooze timer up to 24 hours;
  • Convenient and clear electronic control with LCD display;
  • Direct drive ZEN with inverter motor;
  • 6th Sense technology, dosage tip, cycle acceleration.
  • Only partial (casing) leakage protection;
  • Connection to cold water only.
9.5 / 10
Car class! Externally, it looks very modern. How it works is almost inaudible, the sound of incoming water is inevitable, but without this in any way. There are very interesting modes of washing. Easy and comfortable to use.

Fully built-in washing machine Serie 8 from Bosch is a serious equipment. Expensive, but for this class of devices - this is almost the norm.

The drive is based on an inverter-controlled brushless EcoSilence Drive motor, thanks to which the drum rotates gently without jerking. The fact that it is economical is clearly visible in the energy class of the machine - A-30%. Well, actually, the noise level is very comfortable - 41/67 dB.

9.9 / 10
Expensive, but, in my opinion, this is the only truly standing model among the embedded cheraloc. In the work manifests itself perfectly, in the management is convenient, no excess noise. German assembly in the end.
Hotpoint-Ariston BI WMHL 71283
32 800

An example of the fact that the "installation" can cost quite adequate money, while being quite quiet in operation. This Hotpoint-Ariston washing machine is manufactured under the auspices of Whirlpool, because its appearance and certain characteristics may coincide with the products of the current owner of the Italian brand.

However, we turn to the specifics. The BI WMHL 71283 model is capable of processing up to 7 kg of dry linen in the cotton mode, a maximum for synthetics - 4, for wool products - 1.5 kg. Spin parameters - from 0 to 1200 rpm. The minimum value of residual moisture is 53%. Noise declared by the manufacturer is only 46/71 dB.

Main advantages:
  • Relatively affordable price tag;
  • Motor - inverter;

9.4 / 10
About three months working without complaints. Really quiet machine. Erases normally. In general, the usual embedded model at a very competitive price. As will be further - we will see, now everything suits.

Which of the washing machines is the quietest and best?

This question is asked a considerable number of potential buyers. Only a clear answer does not exist. By the only criterion, choosing a washing machine is not the most reasonable move. After all, even with an incredibly low noise level, one or another model may well not fit in size, not to arrange for performance or price, just not like the appearance or have problems with reliability.

With manufacturers, too, not everything is simple. Want an example? Often, the leaders of other ratings are recognized not cheap varieties from AEG, Italian Electrolux and even the German production. They are really the quietest, erase perfectly, look great. But we did not get into our review for a simple and banal reason - very often some of these models do not shine with longevity (especially after the warranty period), and the cost of repairs is quite prohibitive. Who knows, maybe these are some regular “tricky” EC sanctions? Something is hard to believe that somewhere in Germany they will put up with such a thing. Well, then, but “Koreans” and companies more scrupulous about their own reputation are overwhelmingly happy and do not miss the opportunity to improve their positions in the immense Russian market.

Of course, there are Miele and other excellent all-round options in the premium segment. Here, the virtually silent washing machines from the German Kuppersbusch, in which manufacturability is well complemented by the presence of special noise insulation panels, can be considered as a vivid example. It’s a pity not everyone is able to afford a model from 140 thousand rubles.

Actually, the result

The goal of our rating is not to poke a finger at a specific washing machine, for which the manufacturer has indicated the most beautiful figure, but rather to facilitate the search for a certain "golden mean" as much as possible. For this reason, the best models are divided into several categories, where everyone can choose the best option for themselves in terms of size, price, and, of course, comfortable noise levels.
