Maytag Maxima X MHW4200BW
Whirlpool Duet WFW70HEBW
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.

Maytag Maxima X MHW4200BW
Whirlpool Duet WFW70HEBW
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.
3.has a direct drive motor
Maytag Maxima X MHW4200BW
Whirlpool Duet WFW70HEBW
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.
4.height

965mm

948mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.has aqua stop
Maytag Maxima X MHW4200BW
Whirlpool Duet WFW70HEBW
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.
6.thickness

812mm

841mm

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

1.front loading machine
Maytag Maxima X MHW4200BW
Whirlpool Duet WFW70HEBW
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.
2.has a dot matrix display
Maytag Maxima X MHW4200BW
Whirlpool Duet WFW70HEBW
Dot matrix displays can show important text or graphics using a matrix of lights or mechanical indicators like the display on a calculator.
3.Has a transparent door

Whirlpool Duet WFW70HEBW
With a transparent door you can look inside the machine and see what laundry is inside.
4.Is stackable
Maytag Maxima X MHW4200BW
Whirlpool Duet WFW70HEBW
Stackable machines are ideal if you have limited space as you could stack a tumble dryer on top of a washing machine.
5.There is the option to adjust the height of the machine
Maytag Maxima X MHW4200BW
Whirlpool Duet WFW70HEBW
You can adjust the height of the machine which means that if the floor is uneven you can level it out.
6.Has a honeycomb drum
Maytag Maxima X MHW4200BW
Whirlpool Duet WFW70HEBW
The slightly sculptured surface structure of the honeycomb drum creates a thin film of water or air which gently cushions and protects your laundry.

Washing

With a wider range of programs to choose from you can be more specific and choose the best, most economic program for your needs.
2.maximum spin speed

1200rpm

1200rpm

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.
3.Has a load sensor
Maytag Maxima X MHW4200BW
Whirlpool Duet WFW70HEBW
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 delay start option
Maytag Maxima X MHW4200BW
Whirlpool Duet WFW70HEBW
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.
