Price comparison

General info

1.has top energy efficiency rating
AEG L64840
Bosch WAS2442XEE
The appliance is either Energy Star Certified, or has an EU energy efficiency rating of A++ or A+++. This means it consumes around 20-30% less energy than is required by the minimum local standards for energy efficiency.
The more power per year a device consumes, the less energy efficient it is, making it more costly over time.
3.height

850mm

842mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
Machines which use less water are good for the environment and can save you money in utility bills.
5.thickness

615mm

590mm

We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
6.weight

63.4kg

77kg

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.

Design

1.front loading machine

Bosch WAS2442XEE
Front loading machines are good as you can use the space above and sometimes stack a dryer on top. In general front loading machines use less energy, using less water by only partly filling the drum and obtaining higher spin speeds which clean without requiring as much heat.
2.Has a transparent door

With a transparent door you can look inside the machine and see what laundry is inside.
3.has a dot matrix display

Dot matrix displays can show important text or graphics using a matrix of lights or mechanical indicators like the display on a calculator.
4.top loading machine
AEG L64840
Bosch WAS2442XEE
Top loading machines are good because you can load and unload without bending down. In general they have less problems with mold accumulating and on average a wash takes less time. In general they are cheaper to buy and are a good space saving option.

Washing

1.maximum spin speed

1400rpm

1200rpm

A faster spin speed means you can get things cleaner with a lower temperature of the water. Using a fast spin also extracts water, meaning that the clothes come out nearly dry. Generally, anything over 1,000 rpm is very good.
More weight capacity helps if you want to wash something heavy like curtains. A traditional household machine can hold around 6kg, so with a machine much bigger you may waste energy using it when only half full.
During a spin, machines can get quite noisy. With less noise the machine is not as distracting and you won't be restricted to using it at certain times.
4.has delay start option

Bosch WAS2442XEE
With a delay start option you can schedule the machine to begin at a later time. You can also set the machine to wash at night if your electricity is cheaper outside of peak times.
5.has a pause option
AEG L64840
Bosch WAS2442XEE
This means you can stop the machine if you want to add something you forgot, or get something out that you need urgently.
With a lower noise level for washing you can worry less about disruption and may be able to do a wash at night or while reading.
