Design

1.Has a transparent door

Hotpoint WDPG 9640P

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
Hotpoint WDPG 9640P

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
Hotpoint WDPG 9640P

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

9kg

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.

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.
