You can adjust the height of the machine which means that if the floor is uneven you can level it out.
Dot matrix displays can show important text or graphics using a matrix of lights or mechanical indicators like the display on a calculator.
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.
An interior light helps you to see inside the machine.
With a transparent door you can look inside the machine and see what laundry is inside.
With a lower noise level for drying there is less disruption and you could use the dryer at night.
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.
The machine will analyse how much heat is needed in order to dry each specific load, therefore increasing efficiency and saving energy.
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.
Condenser dryers extract the water from the damp air in the dryer and store it in a container. They are good because they can be put anywhere in the home whereas vented dryers should be next to an outside wall.
You can select the temperature manually if you want more precision and override the preset programmes.
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.
