Design

1.front loading machine
Panasonic NA-168VX4

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

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.

Best

Asko W6884ECO

1800rpm

2.Has a load sensor
Panasonic NA-168VX4

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.

3.number of cycle programs

16

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

4.noise level wash

53dB

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.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

6.noise level spin

71dB

During a spin, machines can get quite noisy. With less noise the machine is not as distracting and you won't be restricted to using it at certain times.
