595mm

720.7mm

We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.

73.4kg

66kg

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.

685mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.

Design

1.front loading machine

LG WT5170HV
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.
2.Has a transparent door

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

Stackable machines are ideal if you have limited space as you could stack a tumble dryer on top of a washing machine.
4.has a dot matrix display

LG WT5170HV
Dot matrix displays can show important text or graphics using a matrix of lights or mechanical indicators like the display on a calculator.

The slightly sculptured surface structure of the honeycomb drum creates a thin film of water or air which gently cushions and protects your laundry.
6.has a reversible door

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.

Washing

1.number of cycle programs

16

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.
2.maximum spin speed

1200rpm

1100rpm

A faster spin speed means you can get things cleaner with a lower temperature of the water. Using a fast spin also extracts water, meaning that the clothes come out nearly dry. Generally, anything over 1,000 rpm is very good.
3.drum volume

62l

133.08l

With a bigger drum you can fit in larger items such as duvets, or do a big load at once.
4.has delay start option
