For example, if you have a large family or entertain a lot and have the space to accommodate, you may want to choose a full size dish washer over a slim line.
While we might purposely choose other products for specific features, we expect washing machines to just get the job done without grabbing our attention, so we don’t spend much time thinking about spin speed, energy rating or capacity. However, choosing the right washing machine is an important decision in efficiently running any household.
