Design

1.front loading machine
Beko WMB 81441
Hotpoint Aqualtis AQ114D 69D

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 dot matrix display

Hotpoint Aqualtis AQ114D 69D

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

Washing

1.maximum spin speed

1400rpm

1600rpm

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.

2.Has a load sensor
Beko WMB 81441
Hotpoint Aqualtis AQ114D 69D

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

4.noise level spin

73dB

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.noise level wash

54dB

51dB

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.

6.laundry capacity

8kg

11kg

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.
