Dot matrix displays can show important text or graphics using a matrix of lights or mechanical indicators like the display on a calculator.
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.
Top loading machines are good because you can load and unload without bending down. In general they have less problems with mold accumulating and on average a wash takes less time. In general they are cheaper to buy and are a good space saving option.
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.
