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
LG F1496AD

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.

4.door diameter

30cm

With a larger door it is easier to load or unload the machine especially with something big like a duvet or a winter coat.

Best

35cm

You can adjust the height of the machine which means that if the floor is uneven you can level it out.

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

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

Best
