Dot matrix displays can show important text or graphics using a matrix of lights or mechanical indicators like the display on a calculator.

2.front loading machine
Hoover DYN 8144DB
Samsung WF7AF5E3P4W

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.

3.Has a transparent door

Samsung WF7AF5E3P4W

With a transparent door you can look inside the machine and see what laundry is inside.

4.top loading machine

Samsung WF7AF5E3P4W

For example

Maytag Centennial MVWC360AW

5.There is the option to adjust the height of the machine

Washing

1.Has a load sensor
Hoover DYN 8144DB
Samsung WF7AF5E3P4W

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.

2.maximum spin speed

1400rpm

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.

This means you can stop the machine if you want to add something you forgot, or get something out that you need urgently.

6.laundry capacity

8kg

7kg

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.
