General info

1.has a hot water connection
AEG L66840L
Bauknecht WA Soft 7F4
A hot water connection means that you can provide the machine with hot water from your main hot water supply. This can be faster than an internal heater and can save money if you have a cheap and efficient water heater.
2.has top energy efficiency rating
AEG L66840L
Bauknecht WA Soft 7F4
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.
4.height

850mm

850mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.has a direct drive motor
AEG L66840L
Bauknecht WA Soft 7F4
A direct drive motor has no belt and pulley. This means it wastes less power in friction, are less prone to breakdowns and have longer lifetimes in general. They are able to operate more quietly and with less vibration.
6.has aqua stop
AEG L66840L
Bauknecht WA Soft 7F4
Aqua stop machines have a special mechanical system which cuts off the water flow into the tub if a fault occurs with the inlet pipe.

Design

1.front loading machine
AEG L66840L
Bauknecht WA Soft 7F4
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.Is stackable
AEG L66840L
Bauknecht WA Soft 7F4
Stackable machines are ideal if you have limited space as you could stack a tumble dryer on top of a washing machine.
3.Has a transparent door
AEG L66840L
Bauknecht WA Soft 7F4
With a transparent door you can look inside the machine and see what laundry is inside.
4.has a dot matrix display
AEG L66840L
Bauknecht WA Soft 7F4
Dot matrix displays can show important text or graphics using a matrix of lights or mechanical indicators like the display on a calculator.
You can adjust the height of the machine which means that if the floor is uneven you can level it out.
6.Has a honeycomb drum
AEG L66840L
Bauknecht WA Soft 7F4
The slightly sculptured surface structure of the honeycomb drum creates a thin film of water or air which gently cushions and protects your laundry.

Washing

1.Has a load sensor
AEG L66840L
Bauknecht WA Soft 7F4
Machines with a load sensor can weigh the load and adjust settings accordingly. This means you don't have to feel as guilty about doing a smaller load as the machine will use less water.
2.maximum spin speed

1600rpm

1400rpm

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.
5.has delay start option
AEG L66840L
Bauknecht WA Soft 7F4
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.
6.has a pause option
AEG L66840L
Bauknecht WA Soft 7F4
