General info

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.has aqua stop
LG WM3488HW
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.
3.width

660.4mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
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.
The more power per year a device consumes, the less energy efficient it is, making it more costly over time.
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.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.
8.volume

422658.51cm³

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

704.85mm

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.

Design

With a transparent door you can look inside the machine and see what laundry is inside.
With a larger door it is easier to load or unload the machine especially with something big like a duvet or a winter coat.
An interior light helps you to see inside the machine.
The device is designed a specific way so that it can be built into a cupboard.
You can adjust the height of the machine which means that if the floor is uneven you can level it out.
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.
7.Is stackable
LG WM3488HW
Stackable machines are ideal if you have limited space as you could stack a tumble dryer on top of a washing machine.
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

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.
With a wider range of programs to choose from you can be more specific and choose the best, most economic program for your needs.
3.Has a load sensor
LG WM3488HW
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.
4.Has a steam option
LG WM3488HW
Steam is a quick way to freshen up items that have only been worn for a few hours, or items that smell like food or smoke.
5.has a pause option
LG WM3488HW
This means you can stop the machine if you want to add something you forgot, or get something out that you need urgently.
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.
With a bigger drum you can fit in larger items such as duvets, or do a big load at once.
This is the maximum amount of time you can set the machine to begin in the future.

Drying

1.Has sanitize option
LG WM3488HW
With a sanitize option the machine uses high temperatures in order to kill bacteria.
Some things are too delicate for mechanical drying, so with this shelf you can dry things like sports shoes.
You can select the temperature manually if you want more precision and override the preset programmes.
A two way tumbler spins in two directions. This is good for efficient drying and for untangling the load.
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.

Features

The machine will let you know when it is finished with an alarm or even by playing a tune.
The detergent drawer is washed automatically to prevent a build up of old detergent.
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.
4.has a child lock
LG WM3488HW
A child lock enables adults to prevent or restrict children’s use of the device.
