Price comparison

General info

1.has top energy efficiency rating
Asko W6884ECO
Beko WMB71231M
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

840mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
4.has a direct drive motor
Asko W6884ECO
Beko WMB71231M
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.
5.thickness

595mm

520mm

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.width

595mm

600mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.

Design

1.front loading machine

Beko WMB71231M
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

Beko WMB71231M
With a transparent door you can look inside the machine and see what laundry is inside.
3.has a dot matrix display

Beko WMB71231M
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.
With a larger door it is easier to load or unload the machine especially with something big like a duvet or a winter coat.

Washing

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

1800rpm

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.
3.Has a load sensor
Asko W6884ECO
Beko WMB71231M
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.
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.
5.has delay start option
Asko W6884ECO
Beko WMB71231M
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
Asko W6884ECO
Beko WMB71231M
This means you can stop the machine if you want to add something you forgot, or get something out that you need urgently.
