LG WD1412RT5

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.

4.There is the option to adjust the height of the machine
LG WD1412RT5

You can adjust the height of the machine which means that if the floor is uneven you can level it out.

5.top loading machine

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.

For example

Haier JW-G50C

Washing

1.laundry capacity

10.2kg

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

LG WD1252RW

12kg

2.maximum spin speed

1200rpm

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.

Best

Miele WT2789i

1600rpm
