General info

LG WM3488HS
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.annual power consumption

120kWh

The more power per year a device consumes, the less energy efficient it is, making it more costly over time.
3.has top energy efficiency rating
LG WM3488HS
The appliance is either Energy Star Certified, or has an EU energy efficiency rating of A++ or A+++. This means it consumes around 20-30% less energy than is required by the minimum local standards for energy efficiency.
4.has a hot water connection
LG WM3488HS
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.
5.weight

70.99kg

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.
6.volume

332673.79cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.

5.door diameter

35cm

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.front loading machine
LG WM3488HS
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.

Washing

1.maximum spin speed

1400rpm

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.
2.Has a load sensor
LG WM3488HS
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

14

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.has delay start option
LG WM3488HS
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.
3.has anti crease setting
LG WM3488HS

4.has a temperature selector
LG WM3488HS
You can select the temperature manually if you want more precision and override the preset programmes.
5.Has sanitize option
LG WM3488HS
With a sanitize option the machine uses high temperatures in order to kill bacteria.
6.has a two way tumbler
LG WM3488HS
A two way tumbler spins in two directions. This is good for efficient drying and for untangling the load.
