Blomberg Washing Machine Best of Year


“Best Compact Washing Machine
Blomberg WM 87120 NBL00
If you don’t have room for a full-size washing machine, the Blomberg WM 87120 is a great fit. It’s only 24 inches wide, which makes it ideal for city apartments and vacation cottages. And while it’s a European-style washer, its performance is tailored for American tastes.

When we tested this Blomberg, we measured stain removal on par with machines nearly twice as big and twice as expensive. It’s also stackable when paired with a matching Blomberg vented dryer—one of only two vented compact dryers on the market. In fact, the washer plugs into the dryer, so users only need a single 220v outlet. (Est. price: $899)”
