Design

1.Has a transparent door
Hotpoint WDAL 8640G

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

2.has a dot matrix display
Hotpoint WDAL 8640G

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

3.front loading machine
Hotpoint WDAL 8640G

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.

Washing

1.laundry capacity

8kg

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

LG WD1252RW

12kg

2.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

Miele WT2789i

1600rpm

3.number of cycle programs

19

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.noise level spin

66dB

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.

Best

Hitachi BD-V9500L

39dB

5.has delay start option
Hotpoint WDAL 8640G

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.

6.Has a load sensor
Hotpoint WDAL 8640G

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.

Drying

1.is a condenser dryer
Hotpoint WDAL 8640G

Condenser dryers extract the water from the damp air in the dryer and store it in a container. They are good because they can be put anywhere in the home whereas vented dryers should be next to an outside wall.

2.has sensor drying
Hotpoint WDAL 8640G

The machine will analyse how much heat is needed in order to dry each specific load, therefore increasing efficiency and saving energy.

3.has a temperature selector
Hotpoint WDAL 8640G

You can select the temperature manually if you want more precision and override the preset programmes.

Features

1.has a child lock
Hotpoint WDAL 8640G

A child lock enables adults to prevent or restrict children’s use of the device.
