Price comparison

General info

1.has top energy efficiency rating
Beko WMB71231M
Fisher and Paykel WL42T26CW1
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

840mm

1.02m

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
Beko WMB71231M
Fisher and Paykel WL42T26CW1
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

520mm

647.7mm

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

600mm

647.7mm

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
Fisher and Paykel WL42T26CW1
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

Fisher and Paykel WL42T26CW1
Dot matrix displays can show important text or graphics using a matrix of lights or mechanical indicators like the display on a calculator.
3.Is stackable

Fisher and Paykel WL42T26CW1
Stackable machines are ideal if you have limited space as you could stack a tumble dryer on top of a washing machine.
4.Has a transparent door

Fisher and Paykel WL42T26CW1
With a transparent door you can look inside the machine and see what laundry is inside.
5.There is the option to adjust the height of the machine
Beko WMB71231M
Fisher and Paykel WL42T26CW1
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

Fisher and Paykel WL42T26CW1
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

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

1200rpm

1000rpm

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
Beko WMB71231M
Fisher and Paykel WL42T26CW1
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.
4.has delay start option
Beko WMB71231M
Fisher and Paykel WL42T26CW1
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.
This is the maximum amount of time you can set the machine to begin in the future.

Features

1.has a child lock
Beko WMB71231M
Fisher and Paykel WL42T26CW1
A child lock enables adults to prevent or restrict children’s use of the device.
2.has an end of cycle signal
Beko WMB71231M
Fisher and Paykel WL42T26CW1
The machine will let you know when it is finished with an alarm or even by playing a tune.
