The more power per year a device consumes, the less energy efficient it is, making it more costly over time.

Machines which use less water are good for the environment and can save you money in utility bills.
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.
With a transparent door you can look inside the machine and see what laundry is inside.
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.
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.
With a larger door it is easier to load or unload the machine especially with something big like a duvet or a winter coat.
With a door that opens wide it is easier to load or unload the machine without the door becoming an obstacle.
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.
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.
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.
With a wider range of programs to choose from you can be more specific and choose the best, most economic program for your needs.
This is the maximum amount of time you can set the machine to begin in the future.
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.
You can select the temperature manually if you want more precision and override the preset programmes.
The machine will let you know when it is finished with an alarm or even by playing a tune.
A child lock enables adults to prevent or restrict children’s use of the device.
