Washing

1.maximum spin speed

1200rpm

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
Samsung WF80F5E5U2W

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.

For example

Hoover DST10146PG

3.number of cycle programs

14

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

Best

Gorenje W9865E

4.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

74dB

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.
