Miele WKH 120 WPS

Stackable machines are ideal if you have limited space as you could stack a tumble dryer on top of a washing machine.

For example

Whirlpool Duet WFW70HEBW

2.front loading machine
Maytag MVWX5SPAW
Miele WKH 120 WPS

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.Has a transparent door

6.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.

Washing

1.maximum spin speed

800rpm

1600rpm

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.
