Design

1.front loading machine
LG F1496QD1

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.has a dot matrix display
LG F1496QD1

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

3.Has a transparent door

With a transparent door you can look inside the machine and see what laundry is inside.

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.

2.Has a load sensor
LG F1496QD1

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

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.

4.noise level wash

With a lower noise level for washing you can worry less about disruption and may be able to do a wash at night or while reading.

Best

Asko W6984Fi

5.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

17kg

6.quickest cycle

A really quick cycle can be a great option if you are in a hurry.
