General info

1.has a hot water connection
Siemens iQ700 WM16W540
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.
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.
The more power per year a device consumes, the less energy efficient it is, making it more costly over time.
The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.has a direct drive motor
Siemens iQ700 WM16W540
A direct drive motor has no belt and pulley. This means it wastes less power in friction, are less prone to breakdowns and have longer lifetimes in general. They are able to operate more quietly and with less vibration.
Machines which use less water are good for the environment and can save you money in utility bills.


1.front loading machine
Siemens iQ700 WM16W540
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
Siemens iQ700 WM16W540
Dot matrix displays can show important text or graphics using a matrix of lights or mechanical indicators like the display on a calculator.
With a door that opens wide it is easier to load or unload the machine without the door becoming an obstacle.
4.Is stackable
Siemens iQ700 WM16W540
Stackable machines are ideal if you have limited space as you could stack a tumble dryer on top of a washing machine.
5.Has a transparent door
Siemens iQ700 WM16W540
With a transparent door you can look inside the machine and see what laundry is inside.
You can adjust the height of the machine which means that if the floor is uneven you can level it out.


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 iQ700 WM16W540
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.
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.
With a bigger drum you can fit in larger items such as duvets, or do a big load at once.
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.
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.


The detergent drawer is washed automatically to prevent a build up of old detergent.
Any faults with your machine can be detected and diagnosed at an early stage with a smartphone. The machine will send a signal indicating what is wrong and how to fix it, without you having to call for help.
3.has a Wi-Fi diagnostic system
Siemens iQ700 WM16W540
The machine is linked up to a monitoring center using Wi-Fi. If the machine has any faults the center will respond by contacting you and helping you to fix the problem.
4.has an end of cycle signal
Siemens iQ700 WM16W540
The machine will let you know when it is finished with an alarm or even by playing a tune.
5.has a child lock
Siemens iQ700 WM16W540
A child lock enables adults to prevent or restrict children’s use of the device.
