Testfakta’s tests are performed by independent and specialised testing and research laboratories in Testfakta’s laboratory network. The tests focus on the washing machines’ ability to wash, rinse and spin dry, user-friendliness and energy efficiency. The purpose of the tests is to highlight products with good properties and help manufacturers and retailers develop their offer to the consumer.
