Price comparison

General info

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.width

600mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
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.
The more power per year a device consumes, the less energy efficient it is, making it more costly over time.
The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
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.
Machines which use less water are good for the environment and can save you money in utility bills.
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.
The power consumption in standby mode, also called energy-saving mode, measures the amount of power the device consumes when shut down but still plugged in.

Design

With a transparent door you can look inside the machine and see what laundry is inside.
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.
With a door that opens wide it is easier to load or unload the machine without the door becoming an obstacle.
You can adjust the height of the machine which means that if the floor is uneven you can level it out.
The device is designed a specific way so that it can be built into a cupboard.

Washing

1.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.
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.
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.
With a wider range of programs to choose from you can be more specific and choose the best, most economic program for your needs.
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.
With a bigger drum you can fit in larger items such as duvets, or do a big load at once.
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.
This is the maximum amount of time you can set the machine to begin in the future.

Drying

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

Features

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.
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.
