How much power the device consumes when shut down but still plugged in.
With a transparent door you can look inside the machine and see what laundry is inside.
Dot matrix displays can show important text or graphics using a matrix of lights or mechanical indicators like the display on a calculator.
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.
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.
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.
With a wider range of programs to choose from you can be more specific and choose the best, most economic program for your needs.
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.
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.
This is the maximum amount of time you can set the machine to begin in the future.
Devices which use a heat pump can save up to 50% on energy as they conserve heat better. They are better in warmer climates as in temperatures lower than 5 degrees their performance begins to suffer.
With an anti crease spin the machine gently rotates to shake out creases.
With a lower noise level for drying there is less disruption and you could use the dryer at night.
