All About The Westinghouse 8kg Top Load Washer

Learn all about the brand new Westinghouse 8kg Top Load Washing Machine.

If you are what you use to wash your clothes then I’m fast, easy and gentle.

Don’t you love when something is easy and not a big deal? What if that something was the laundry? When I think about washing my clothes, “easy”, “fast” and “gentle” are not words that I would usually use. “Tiresome”, “drudgery”, “Sisyphean task” and “not hot girl business” are the words I use.

If you’re here looking for a solution then you’ve come to the right place! Westinghouse’s new laundry appliances are an all new addition to Bi-Rite’s laundry line up, and if you’re Team Top Loader you’ll be frothing at this one.

Start with the aesthetic

The Westinghouse 8kg Top Load Washer has a classic white finish on the outside with a black glass soft-closing lid. The fascia (fancy name for the control panelly bits at the top) is a matte finish and feels like quality in the hands.

I feel like this black and white aesthetic could match a range of decors, if you like the ultra-modern or industrial style of decorating then this one will fit for sure. If your decor is Hamptons/colonial style then this probably won’t fit unless you have black fixtures in the laundry too. If there’s no black at all in your decor then bring a picture of your laundry room when you come to check the washer out in store.

Basically, when weighing up the features, consider the look to be a feature as well and decide which features are the most important.
