An interior light helps you to see inside the machine.

For example

Siemens WM16S890EU

2.front loading machine
Hotpoint Aqualtis AQ114D 69D
Samsung WF706U4SAWQ

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
Hotpoint Aqualtis AQ114D 69D
Samsung WF706U4SAWQ

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

4.has a dot matrix display

A reversible door is useful if the machine is in a corner, so you can make it open more conveniently. It also means the door is easy to remove and can be replaced if needed.

For example

LG F14A7FDS

Washing

Hotpoint Aqualtis AQ114D 69D
Samsung WF706U4SAWQ

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.

For example

Hoover DST10146PG

2.maximum spin speed

1600rpm

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.

Asko W6884ECO

1800rpm

3.number of cycle programs

17

14

With a wider range of programs to choose from you can be more specific and choose the best, most economic program for your needs.

4.has a pause option

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

5.laundry capacity

11kg

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.

Best

74dB

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.
