Design

1.front loading machine
Amica AWB510L

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
Amica AWB510L

With a transparent door you can look inside the machine and see what laundry is inside.

3.has a dot matrix display
Amica AWB510L

Dot matrix displays can show important text or graphics using a matrix of lights or mechanical indicators like the display on a calculator.

For example

Beko WMB 71232 PTE

4.There is the option to adjust the height of the machine
Amica AWB510L

You can adjust the height of the machine which means that if the floor is uneven you can level it out.

5.top loading machine
Amica AWB510L

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.

For example

Maytag Centennial MVWC360AW

6.has a reversible door
Amica AWB510L

A reversible door is useful if the machine is in a corner, so you can make it open more conveniently. It also means the door is easy to remove and can be replaced if needed.

For example

LG F14A7FDS

Washing

1.maximum spin speed

1000rpm

A faster spin speed means you can get things cleaner with a lower temperature of water. Using a fast spin also extracts water, meaning that the clothes come out nearly dry. Generally, anything over 1000 rpm is very good.

Best

Asko W6884ECO

1800rpm

2.Has a load sensor
Amica AWB510L

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.

3.number of cycle programs

15

With a wider range of programs to choose from you can be more specific and choose the best, most economic program for your needs.

Best

Gorenje W9865E

31

4.laundry capacity

5kg

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.

Best

Samsung WF405ATPASU

17kg

5.noise level spin

77dB

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.

Best

Haier MS1050A

45dB

6.noise level wash

58dB

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.

Best
