General info

1.annual power consumption

325kWh

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Samsung DV457EVGSWR)

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

660mm

685mm

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

840mm

990.6mm

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

590mm

819.1mm

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.
5.volume

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (LG RC9042AQ3Z)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Samsung DV457EVGSWR)

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.
6.has a hot water connection
LG RC9042AQ3Z
Samsung DV457EVGSWR
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.
7.water consumption annual

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (LG RC9042AQ3Z)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Samsung DV457EVGSWR)

Machines which use less water are good for the environment and can save you money in utility bills.

Aqua stop machines have a special mechanical system which cuts off the water flow into the tub if a fault occurs with the inlet pipe.
9.has a direct drive motor
LG RC9042AQ3Z
Samsung DV457EVGSWR
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.

Design

1.There is the option to adjust the height of the machine
LG RC9042AQ3Z
Samsung DV457EVGSWR
You can adjust the height of the machine which means that if the floor is uneven you can level it out.
2.front loading machine
LG RC9042AQ3Z
Samsung DV457EVGSWR
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.
3.top loading machine
LG RC9042AQ3Z
Samsung DV457EVGSWR
Top loading machines are good because you can load and unload without bending down. In general they have less problems with mold accumulating and on average a wash takes less time. In general they are cheaper to buy and are a good space saving option.
4.Has a transparent door
LG RC9042AQ3Z
Samsung DV457EVGSWR
With a transparent door you can look inside the machine and see what laundry is inside.
5.door diameter

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Samsung DV457EVGSWR)

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

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (LG RC9042AQ3Z)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Samsung DV457EVGSWR)

With a door that opens wide it is easier to load or unload the machine without the door becoming an obstacle.
7.has a reversible door
LG RC9042AQ3Z
Samsung DV457EVGSWR
A reversible door is useful if the machine is in a corner, so you can make it open more conveniently. It also means the door is easy to remove and can be replaced if needed.
8.Is stackable
LG RC9042AQ3Z
Samsung DV457EVGSWR
Stackable machines are ideal if you have limited space as you could stack a tumble dryer on top of a washing machine.
9.has cupboard integration capability
LG RC9042AQ3Z
Samsung DV457EVGSWR
The device is designed a specific way so that it can be built into a cupboard.

1.has a pause option
LG RC9042AQ3Z
Samsung DV457EVGSWR
This means you can stop the machine if you want to add something you forgot, or get something out that you need urgently.
2.is a condenser dryer
LG RC9042AQ3Z
Samsung DV457EVGSWR
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.
3.has anti crease setting
LG RC9042AQ3Z
Samsung DV457EVGSWR
With an anti crease spin the machine gently rotates to shake out creases.
4.noise level dryer

60.5dB

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Samsung DV457EVGSWR)

With a lower noise level for drying there is less disruption and you could use the dryer at night.
5.drum volume

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (LG RC9042AQ3Z)

212.37l

With a bigger drum you can fit in larger items such as duvets, or do a big load at once.
6.has delay start option
LG RC9042AQ3Z
Samsung DV457EVGSWR
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.
7.is a vented dryer
LG RC9042AQ3Z
Samsung DV457EVGSWR
Vented dryers are cheaper and can be more efficient than condenser dryers. The damp air extracted travels through a long plastic hose and is discharged outside the home, either through a window or hole in the wall. You don't have to empty a water container like you do with some condenser dryers.
8.has heat pump technology
LG RC9042AQ3Z
Samsung DV457EVGSWR
Devices which use a heat pump can save up to 50% on energy as they conserve heat better. They are better in warmer climates as in temperatures lower than 5 degrees their performance begins to suffer.
9.machine uses gas
LG RC9042AQ3Z
Samsung DV457EVGSWR
Gas dryers are more economical in the long run. They are a good option if you have a gas connection in your laundry room.
