Design

1.front loading machine
Bosch Exxcel WAQ28461GB

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.

Washing

1.maximum spin speed

1400rpm

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.

Best

2.number of cycle programs

15

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

3.laundry capacity
