General info

1.has a hot water connection
LG F1480QDS
Siemens WM14E4M5
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.
2.has top energy efficiency rating
LG F1480QDS
Siemens WM14E4M5
The appliance is either Energy Star Certified, or has an EU energy efficiency rating of A++ or A+++. This means it consumes around 20-30% less energy than is required by the minimum local standards for energy efficiency.
3.annual power consumption

200.2kWh

165kWh

The more power per year a device consumes, the less energy efficient it is, making it more costly over time.
4.height

850mm

848mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.has aqua stop
LG F1480QDS
Siemens WM14E4M5
Aqua stop machines have a special mechanical system which cuts off the water flow into the tub if a fault occurs with the inlet pipe.
6.water consumption annual

10780l

10686l

Machines which use less water are good for the environment and can save you money in utility bills.

Design

1.front loading machine
LG F1480QDS
Siemens WM14E4M5
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.Is stackable
LG F1480QDS
Siemens WM14E4M5
Stackable machines are ideal if you have limited space as you could stack a tumble dryer on top of a washing machine.
3.Has a transparent door

Siemens WM14E4M5
With a transparent door you can look inside the machine and see what laundry is inside.
4.has a dot matrix display
LG F1480QDS
Siemens WM14E4M5
Dot matrix displays can show important text or graphics using a matrix of lights or mechanical indicators like the display on a calculator.

Washing

1.number of cycle programs

5

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

1400rpm

1400rpm

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.Has a load sensor
LG F1480QDS
Siemens WM14E4M5
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.
4.laundry capacity

7kg

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.
5.noise level spin

73dB

77dB

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.
6.has delay start option
LG F1480QDS
Siemens WM14E4M5
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.

Features

1.has a child lock
LG F1480QDS
Siemens WM14E4M5
A child lock enables adults to prevent or restrict children’s use of the device.
2.has a smartphone diagnostic system
LG F1480QDS
Siemens WM14E4M5
Any faults with your machine can be detected and diagnosed at an early stage with a smartphone. The machine will send a signal indicating what is wrong and how to fix it, without you having to call for help.
3.has an end of cycle signal
LG F1480QDS
Siemens WM14E4M5
The machine will let you know when it is finished with an alarm or even by playing a tune.
