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.

With a transparent door you can look inside the machine and see what laundry is inside.
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.
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.
With a door that opens wide it is easier to load or unload the machine without the door becoming an obstacle.
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.
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.
With a wider range of programs to choose from you can be more specific and choose the best, most economic program for your needs.
This means you can stop the machine if you want to add something you forgot, or get something out that you need urgently.
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.
With a bigger drum you can fit in larger items such as duvets, or do a big load at once.
A child lock enables adults to prevent or restrict children’s use of the device.
