General info

1.has a hot water connection
Siemens iQ100 WM14B222
Whirlpool WFW862CHC
A hot water connection means that you can provide the machine with hot water from your main hot water supply. This can be faster than an internal heater and can save money if you have a cheap and efficient water heater.
2.has top energy efficiency rating
Siemens iQ100 WM14B222
Whirlpool WFW862CHC
The appliance is either Energy Star Certified, or has an EU energy efficiency rating of A++ or A+++. This means it consumes around 20-30% less energy than is required by the minimum local standards for energy efficiency.
3.annual power consumption

153kWh

476kWh

The more power per year a device consumes, the less energy efficient it is, making it more costly over time.
4.height

848mm

981mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.has aqua stop
Siemens iQ100 WM14B222
Whirlpool WFW862CHC
Aqua stop machines have a special mechanical system which cuts off the water flow into the tub if a fault occurs with the inlet pipe.
6.thickness

550mm

801.7mm

We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.

Design

1.front loading machine
Siemens iQ100 WM14B222
Whirlpool WFW862CHC
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
Siemens iQ100 WM14B222
Whirlpool WFW862CHC
With a transparent door you can look inside the machine and see what laundry is inside.
3.Is stackable
Siemens iQ100 WM14B222
Whirlpool WFW862CHC
Stackable machines are ideal if you have limited space as you could stack a tumble dryer on top of a washing machine.
4.Has a honeycomb drum
Siemens iQ100 WM14B222
Whirlpool WFW862CHC
The slightly sculptured surface structure of the honeycomb drum creates a thin film of water or air which gently cushions and protects your laundry.
5.There is the option to adjust the height of the machine
Siemens iQ100 WM14B222
Whirlpool WFW862CHC
You can adjust the height of the machine which means that if the floor is uneven you can level it out.
6.has a dot matrix display
Siemens iQ100 WM14B222
Whirlpool WFW862CHC
Dot matrix displays can show important text or graphics using a matrix of lights or mechanical indicators like the display on a calculator.

Washing

1.number of cycle programs

14

37

With a wider range of programs to choose from you can be more specific and choose the best, most economic program for your needs.
2.Has a load sensor
Siemens iQ100 WM14B222
Whirlpool WFW862CHC
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.maximum spin speed

1400rpm

1200rpm

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.
4.drum volume

42l

121l

With a bigger drum you can fit in larger items such as duvets, or do a big load at once.
5.has delay start option
Siemens iQ100 WM14B222
Whirlpool WFW862CHC
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.has a pause option
Siemens iQ100 WM14B222
Whirlpool WFW862CHC
This means you can stop the machine if you want to add something you forgot, or get something out that you need urgently.
