The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.

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.
4.thickness

575mm

615mm

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.
5.width

595mm

595mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.

Design

1.front loading machine

Smeg WMFAB16AZ
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 transparent door

Smeg WMFAB16AZ
With a transparent door you can look inside the machine and see what laundry is inside.
3.has a dot matrix display

Smeg WMFAB16AZ
Dot matrix displays can show important text or graphics using a matrix of lights or mechanical indicators like the display on a calculator.
4.Has a honeycomb drum

Smeg WMFAB16AZ
The slightly sculptured surface structure of the honeycomb drum creates a thin film of water or air which gently cushions and protects your laundry.
You can adjust the height of the machine which means that if the floor is uneven you can level it out.
6.has cupboard integration capability
Miele W2819i
Smeg WMFAB16AZ
The device is designed a specific way so that it can be built into a cupboard.

Washing

1.Has a load sensor
Miele W2819i
Smeg WMFAB16AZ
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.
2.maximum spin speed

1400rpm

1600rpm

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.
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.
4.has delay start option
Miele W2819i
Smeg WMFAB16AZ
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.
5.has a pause option
Miele W2819i
Smeg WMFAB16AZ
This means you can stop the machine if you want to add something you forgot, or get something out that you need urgently.
A really quick cycle can be a great option if you are in a hurry.

1.has self cleaning detergent drawer
