Whirlpool WTW4900AW
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

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

The device is designed a specific way so that it can be built into a cupboard.

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.
2.has delay start option
Miele W2819i
Whirlpool WTW4900AW
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.
