Price comparison

General info

1.has a direct drive motor
LG F1496AD5
A direct drive motor has no belt and pulley. This means it wastes less power in friction, are less prone to breakdowns and have longer lifetimes in general. They are able to operate more quietly and with less vibration.
2.height

850mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
3.thickness

550mm

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.
4.has a hot water connection
LG F1496AD5
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.
5.annual power consumption

1296kWh

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

600mm

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

Design

1.Has a transparent door
LG F1496AD5
With a transparent door you can look inside the machine and see what laundry is inside.
2.has a dot matrix display
LG F1496AD5
Dot matrix displays can show important text or graphics using a matrix of lights or mechanical indicators like the display on a calculator.
3.door opening angle

180°

With a door that opens wide it is easier to load or unload the machine without the door becoming an obstacle.
4.front loading machine
LG F1496AD5
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.
5.There is the option to adjust the height of the machine
LG F1496AD5
You can adjust the height of the machine which means that if the floor is uneven you can level it out.
6.has cupboard integration capability
LG F1496AD5
The device is designed a specific way so that it can be built into a cupboard.

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.
2.maximum spin speed

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 F1496AD5
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.has delay start option
LG F1496AD5
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.
5.number of cycle programs

13

With a wider range of programs to choose from you can be more specific and choose the best, most economic program for your needs.
6.drum volume

58l

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

Drying

1.noise level dryer

54dB

With a lower noise level for drying there is less disruption and you could use the dryer at night.
2.has a temperature selector
LG F1496AD5
You can select the temperature manually if you want more precision and override the preset programmes.

Features

1.has an end of cycle signal
LG F1496AD5
The machine will let you know when it is finished with an alarm or even by playing a tune.
2.has a child lock
LG F1496AD5
A child lock enables adults to prevent or restrict children’s use of the device.
3.has a smartphone diagnostic system
LG F1496AD5
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.
