If you are looking for an efficient and durable washing machine, look no further than the Candy 10kg washing machine.
Candy boast about their washing machine being able to save you time, and this is justified when being able to choose from 9 quick wash options.
Also known as “Candy RapidÓ”, this washing machine’s design is going to give you clean results in no time at all. Let’s face it – who wants to be waiting around for the washing machine to finish on their day off?!

With pretty much every other household owning an Alexa these days, it was only a matter of time before somebody thought of this, and with the Simply-Fi app, Candy definitely do it well.

3. Hoover 10kg 1500rpm Washing Machine
Dimensions: 54cm(l) x 60cm(w) x 85cm(h)
Hoover is a staple name when it comes to household appliances in United Kingdom. The company makes some of the best home appliances, and this Hoover 10kg machine is no exception.
Like some of the washing machines in this review, the Hoover 10kg washing machine scores an A+++ for energy efficiency. Plus, it comes with three quick wash options, including 14, 30, and 44 minutes. That way, you can get tons of laundry done in as little time as possible.
Furthermore, the Hoover company added a “next gen tech” Wi-Fi connectivity to the machine. The connection is possible through the Hoover wizard app. Then, the one-touch technology will let you interact via the app from any Android or iOS smartphone.
- Child lock
- Three rapid wash options
- A+++ energy economy feature
- One day delay timer
- Hoover Wizard app and Wi-Fi connectivity
- Hoover app isn’t very reliable
However, for the app to be effective, pay attention to the Wi-Fi/NFT settings. This might be a bit tricky to set up, but it will save you time in the long run. Having the option to oversee any cycle at any moment is always welcome.
We love the 16 default washing programmes of the Hoover 10kg washing machine. It benefits from a 59-minutes half-load, a 20-degree eco-friendly feature and a baby clothes programmes, to name a few.
It comes with a 10-year parts guarantee and a one-year manufacturer’s guarantee, which is subject to registration.
Ideal Choice For Busy Households
The Hoover DXOA510C3 makes an excellent choice if your laundry needs require multiple washing programmes.
It is particularly useful if you are short on time and there is added peace of mind with their guarantee and warranty.
4. Hotpoint Active Care 10kg Washing Machine
Dimensions: 59cm(l) x 53cm(w) x 43cm(h)
Another household name we have on our list is Hotpoint. For an easy and intuitive experience, we recommend the Hotpoint Active 10kg washing machine.
This machine has 14 programmes including rapid eco, bed and bath, baby, and reduced ironing – which I personally think should be a standard programme on all washing machines!
The Hotpoint also has an ActiveCare feature that allows it to remove common stains at 20 degrees. This way, you can save energy and wash your clothes without having to use additional stain removers – this is especially useful for allergy sufferers who may not be able to use certain fabric conditioners due to skin irritation.
- Removes common stains at 20 degrees
- Highly rated for energy efficiency (A+++)
- Steam cleaning at the end of washing cycle
- 30 minute quick wash
- Countdown timer included
- Full load wash takes too long
Usually, washing clothes at lower temperatures leaves germs and bacteria after the cycle ends. However, the Hotpoint Active Care 10kg washing machine beats this flaw by using the “Steam Hygiene programme.” It is a 20-minute programme that kills 99.9% of germs in your laundry, ensuring that your clothes come out fresh and ready for use.
On the other hand, however, the added wash time could be challenging for some. There is no half-load feature, and the spin speed during a 30-min wash is only 800RPM. So, if you require a 60-degree programme, you’ll have to wait for at least two hours.
Regardless, we can conclude that the Hotpoint 10kg washing machine is pretty easy to use. Plus, it is excellent value for money since it can also handle big loads, even duvets. Despite some minor disadvantages, this is one of the best 10kg washing machines on the UK market.
Top Pick For Easy Use
If you want an appliance that is easy to use, then look no further. With the easy to read functions and controls on the front of the washing machine you can’t go wrong with Hotpoint’s offering.
As well as 14 programmes to choose from and being able to accommodate larger loads this machine is worth the money.
5. Hoover H-WASH 500 Wi-Fi Connected 10kg Washer/Dryer
Dimensions: 58cm(l) x 60cm(w) x 85cm(h)
Another Hoover washing machine takes the fifth spot on our list. Unlike the previous model, the Hoover H-Wash has a 1400 RPM, but it is still an excellent fit for any home.
It features a 10kg wash and a 6kg dryer, which is a super combination that will get your clothes ready in no time. It has an array of programmes including half load, eco, wool, and quick wash – especially great for those who need clean clothes in a hurry. Although it only has the one quick wash option, it is still a quick programme that is really beneficial.
The washer-dryer also includes a Caredose feature that measures the right amount of detergent. So, you can control your budget and manage the laundry easily.
- Three drying options
- Has a lint filter
- Easy to use
- Value for money with a 1 year guarantee
Similarly, the ActiveCare programme combines the right amount of detergent and water, ensuring that stubborn stains can be removed from your clothes easily.
Noise levels stay at 56 dB during every wash cycle. Thanks to the Eco-motor parts, the noise stays under control during the spin (78dB) and the drying (51dB). This is perfect for any open plan household who do not want the noise of an appliance running while they try to relax after a day at work.
The Hoover H-wash has an A rating for energy efficiency. Furthermore, the machine’s innovative technology gives you a lot more control over your washing. You can pair the Hoover H-wash with Alexa and Google assistant through wireless connectivity. This means, like many on this list, that you can start your washing machine to fit in around you.
If you prefer the traditional way of using a washing machine however, you will find it is easily controlled with the dials and digital display.
Ideal For Those Short On Space
Do you lack the space to put a washer and dryer seperately? Or are you struggling to find somewhere to dry your clothes? – then the Hoover H WASH 500 is just the appliance you’ve been looking for.
With it’s 10kg washing drum and enough dryer space for a 6kg load, this machine is perfect. The app connectivity, low noise levels, and sleek appearance also make it an excellent offering from Hoover.
6. Indesit 10kg Washing Machine
Dimensions: 61.5cm(l) x 59.5cm(w) x 84.5cm(h)
This next washing machine comes from Indesit and is perfect for busy households. Thanks to the drum capacity, it can easily handle the laundry load of large families.
The Indesit 10kg washing machine is bustling with really cool features. It has over 16 programmes, including a delay timer, a child lock, and a time-saver option to enhance their utility. For example, the Push and Wash programme lets you mix different types of fabric in one wash cycle.
The unique Wool Setting feature ensures that your jumpers are safe, too. In practice, this means you don’t have to rely solely on handwashing when it comes to some more delicate pieces.
- Push-and-wash feature for mixed loads

- Only one quick wash programme
This washing machine is also eco-friendly since you can select the Economy Wash to save on water and energy. This feature lets you wash clothes with controlled spending of resources, saving you some pounds in the process.
At 79 dB, the noise level of the Indesit 10kg washing machine does not sound bad or annoying, and it works pretty quietly in an open space kitchen. However, noise levels from washing machines greatly depend on your home setting and the amount of space available.
The Indesit runs at an impressive 1600 rates per minute. This feature reduces the time your clothes need to dry after washing them. While other washing machines on this list can perform the same function, Indesit 10kg claims to do it better and faster.

Great Choice For Efficiency
The Indesit offers you great features that can help make the laundry more enjoyable. With the help of the easy to read control panel and dial, it won’t take long for you to get to grips with your new washing machine.
7. AEG ProSense Technology 10kg Washing Machine
Dimensions: 66cm(l) x 60cm(w) x 85cm(h)
The AEG ProSense Technology washing machine is another A+++ rated energy-efficient home appliance. With its load capacity you can get the laundry done without needing to take multiple trips to and from the washing basket, making it an excellent choice for a medium-sized family.
As the name implies, the ProSense technology is another standout feature, accurately weighing each load to ensure you use only the right amount of water and energy. Plus, if you are in a hurry, you can turn on the quick wash feature to wash your favourite dress within 20 minutes. The efficiency of this washing machine will give you a great investment for years to come.
Talking of efficiency – this machine also comes with an inverter motor. This motor uses frictionless magnets instead of noisy brushes. Hence, it’s super quiet and ideal for those who have an open plan living space.
- Automatic settings adjustment for better cleaning
- Great for open plan living
- 20 minutes quick wash
- Combined economy and time saver mode
- Unique sensor for personalised cleaning
- ProSense technology
- No mixed load programme
- Doesn’t have a wide opening door
For a run rate of 1400rpm, the AEG ProSense is not a bad pick for a washing machine. Also, its “EcoTime Save” mode provides a quick and efficient wash. The manufacturer has designed the machine to save time and energy. Therefore, it successfully combines the time-saving mode with the eco-mode.
We love how AEG ProSense keeps the outfit looking as good as new after every wash. Special sensors in the drum determine the fabric type and the exact settings that leave them spotlessly clean. It also monitors each washing cycle to reduce over washing. This way, your clothes can stay vibrant and last longer.
The AEG washing machine includes 19 standard programmes with two quick wash options, an economy mode, half-load function, easy iron function, and more. We especially like the wool mark badge certificate. Feel free to throw in your soft jumpers whenever you see this badge. Then, make sure to turn the wool programme on so the machine knows to reduce the temperature and use a gentler spin.
It is worth noting that you get a two-year manufacturer’s warranty on all purchases.
Ideal When Needing Multiple Programmes
AEG have pretty much thought of everything with this washing machine – from the 19 standard programmes to the efficiency and clever technology – purchasing this washer would be worth every penny.
8. Beko 10kg Washing Machine
Dimensions: 64cm(l) x 60cm(w) x 84cm(h)
Beko is currently one of the leading home appliance manufacturers in the United Kingdom. So, it’s no surprise that they have a successful range of 10kg washing machines too.
When you need your laundry done fast, you can always count on a Beko washing machine. Its quick wash cycle takes only 28 minutes. Also, regardless of the fabrics of your clothes, Beko’s variable temperature feature has got you covered. The feature allows you to alter the temperature of the wash cycle to suit the type of fabric at hand. For example, if you are washing delicate fabrics, you should set the machine to a low temperature to prevent damage. White laundry, on the other hand, will require a higher temperature.
The Beko 10kg washing machine has a spin speed of 1400rpm. This rate is good enough to give your clothes less drying time. So that speeds up the whole laundry process by a lot. The machine also conserves water and saves energy by controlling the amount of water. Hence, it’s a convenient option if you want to keep the bills at a minimum.
- Anti-allergy programme
- 28-minute quick wash
- Quiet mode
- Moderate energy consumption
- 10-year DD motor warranty
- No intensive cycle
- No silk wash
Also, this machine comes with an LED display that gives you an accurate detail of the current wash cycle. This way, you’ll be able to check settings and make adjustments as you see fit. For example, you can improve the performance of the washing machine by using the “fuzzy logic” feature. This feature uses special sensors to monitor the load inside the drum and instructs the machine to arrange the proper washing cycle.
Also, we found the Anti-allergy programme particularly interesting. It is an excellent feature for people with sensitive skin, as it kills 99.9% of bacteria and removes pollen and dust mites from your fabric.
Another useful feature is the ProSmart – a brushless inverter motor that keeps this appliance quiet when in use and will help it last a lot longer, making it a sound investment.
It comes with standard washing machine programmes including delicate wash, sports programme, and mixed load. Another advantage is that the machine comes with a ten-year full manufacturer’s DD motor warranty and a one-year manufacturer’s warranty.
Top Pick For Reliability
Beko are living up to their reputation with this 10kg washing machine. They give an array of programmes, some really useful features and easy to use controls and LED display.
Choose this machine and you won’t be disappointed.
Whether you run a busy household or you live alone, a good washing machine will save you a lot of time. Most notably, when it houses a drum big enough to get things done in one go.
That’s why the 10kg washing machines are an efficient solution since they provide efficacy but won’t cost you a fortune. Every one of the eight choices in our article combines those two aspects perfectly.
However, if you choose to buy a washing machine outside of our list, we recommend that you take some precautions.
Check for brand reputation and credibility. If the name sounds familiar to you, it means you’re entering some well-trodden ground. In other words, chances are you won’t run into a dud with a well-known company.
Also, look out for energy efficiency ratings. The best 10kg washing machines will have an A+++ energy rating (pre-2021).
Spin speed is another feature you should look out for in quality washing machines. However, the note that a machine “runs at 1400rpm” doesn’t mean it will do so all the time. Things might vary in practice, depending on how the machine runs and how much energy it consumes.
Similarly, maintaining the machine is a must to upkeep its good performance.
Other features to check for include parts availability, quick wash options, noise level, cost, antibacterial setting, and different standard settings.
Luckily, our list atones for those worries, so you can rely on this guide when making your choice.
