General info

1.has a hot water connection
Gorenje W8444
Miele W2819i
A hot water connection means that you can provide the machine with hot water from your main hot water supply. This can be faster than an internal heater and can save money if you have a cheap and efficient water heater.
2.has top energy efficiency rating
Gorenje W8444
Miele W2819i
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.
3.height

850mm

820mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
4.has aqua stop
Gorenje W8444
Miele W2819i
Aqua stop machines have a special mechanical system which cuts off the water flow into the tub if a fault occurs with the inlet pipe.
5.thickness

600mm

575mm

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

79.5kg

94kg

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

Miele W2819i
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

Miele W2819i
With a transparent door you can look inside the machine and see what laundry is inside.
3.has a dot matrix display
Gorenje W8444
Miele W2819i
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.
5.Has a honeycomb drum
Gorenje W8444
Miele W2819i
The slightly sculptured surface structure of the honeycomb drum creates a thin film of water or air which gently cushions and protects your laundry.
6.has cupboard integration capability
Gorenje W8444
Miele W2819i
The device is designed a specific way so that it can be built into a cupboard.

Washing

1.maximum spin speed

1400rpm

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.
3.has delay start option
Gorenje W8444
Miele W2819i
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.
4.has a pause option
Gorenje W8444
Miele W2819i
This means you can stop the machine if you want to add something you forgot, or get something out that you need urgently.
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.
A really quick cycle can be a great option if you are in a hurry.
