6 Reasons For

A load balancing system on your washing machine helps to spread the clothes evenly around the drum, rather than have them all bunch in a single place.

Having a balanced load in your washing machine helps the drum rotate smoother, and means the drum vibrates less, reducing the amount of noise from the machine.
