A hot water connection means that you can provide the machine with hot water from your main hot water supply. This can be faster than an internal heater and can save money if you have a cheap and efficient water heater.

LG F1480QDS

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

2.front loading machine
LG F1480QDS

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 dot matrix display
LG F1480QDS

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

4.Has a transparent door

Washing

1.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

Asko W6884ECO

1800rpm

2.Has a load sensor

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.

3.number of cycle programs

5

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 wash

Best

Asko W6984Fi

41dB

5.noise level spin

73dB

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

Haier MS1050A

6.laundry capacity

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
