Price comparison

General info

1.has top energy efficiency rating
Beko WMB71231M
Indesit IWD7145
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

850mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
Machines which use less water are good for the environment and can save you money in utility bills.
5.thickness

520mm

535mm

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.weight

71kg

67kg

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.

Design

1.front loading machine

Indesit IWD7145
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

Indesit IWD7145
Dot matrix displays can show important text or graphics using a matrix of lights or mechanical indicators like the display on a calculator.
3.Has a transparent door

Indesit IWD7145
With a transparent door you can look inside the machine and see what laundry is inside.
You can adjust the height of the machine which means that if the floor is uneven you can level it out.

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

1400rpm

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.
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.
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.has delay start option

Indesit IWD7145
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

Features

1.has an end of cycle signal
