Design

1.Is stackable
Miele W5872

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

2.front loading machine
Miele W5872

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 cupboard integration capability
Miele W5872

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

4.has a dot matrix display
Miele W5872

Dot matrix displays can show important text or graphics using a matrix of lights or mechanical indicators like the display on a calculator.

5.Has a transparent door
Miele W5872

With a transparent door you can look inside the machine and see what laundry is inside.

6.There is the option to adjust the height of the machine
Miele W5872

You can adjust the height of the machine which means that if the floor is uneven you can level it out.

Washing

1.maximum spin speed

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.

1800rpm

2.number of cycle programs

17

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.laundry capacity

8kg

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.

Best

Samsung WF405ATPASU

17kg

4.noise level wash

48dB

With a lower noise level for washing you can worry less about disruption and may be able to do a wash at night or while reading.

Best

Asko W6984Fi

41dB

5.has delay start option
Miele W5872

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.

6.quickest cycle

20m

A really quick cycle can be a great option if you are in a hurry.
