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

1800rpm

2.Has a load sensor
Gorenje WA8440P

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
