About Simpson Washing Machines

Simpson is a part of the Electrolux group, which uses Simpson as its “budget range” of appliances.

They achieved three stars in 7 of our 8 categories, with a four star rating for ease of use. While this isn’t a bad score, it isn’t encouraging to see other brands ahead of a specialist laundry appliance brand.

A brief history of the company

Simpson is a long-standing Australian brand from Adelaide, and has merged with many different companies since their establishment in 1909. In 1999, they became a part of the Electrolux group, which they are still a part of today.

Before this, there were various merges in the 1960s, 70s, and 80s, until the final merge in the 90s. In 2006, the Simpson manufacturing plant was shut down and all production came from Electrolux factories.

The Product Range

While their ranger is small, Simpson makes durable and hardworking washing machines for a family of any size, including a small 5.5kg, medium 8kg, or a massive 10kg washer.

All you have to do is choose between front loader and top loader, and then pick your weight. When you buy a Simpson washing machine, there is nothing flashy to consider; they are simple and will get the job done efficiently.

In case anything does go wrong, your Simpson washer will be covered by a two year warranty on the whole unit, and a ten year warranty on the invertor motor parts.

With settings to suit every item from delicates to bedding, you won’t need to hand wash or put anything through the machine twice.
