General info

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.
2.width

600mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
3.has aqua stop
Smeg WDF147XS
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.
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 height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
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.
7.weight

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
8.volume

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.
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.

Design

1.Has a transparent door
Smeg WDF147XS
With a transparent door you can look inside the machine and see what laundry is inside.
With a larger door it is easier to load or unload the machine especially with something big like a duvet or a winter coat.
With a door that opens wide it is easier to load or unload the machine without the door becoming an obstacle.
4.has an interior light
Smeg WDF147XS
An interior light helps you to see inside the machine.
5.front loading machine
Smeg WDF147XS
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.
6.top loading machine
Smeg WDF147XS
Top loading machines are good because you can load and unload without bending down. In general they have less problems with mold accumulating and on average a wash takes less time. In general they are cheaper to buy and are a good space saving option.
7.has a reversible door
Smeg WDF147XS
A reversible door is useful if the machine is in a corner, so you can make it open more conveniently. It also means the door is easy to remove and can be replaced if needed.
8.Is stackable
Smeg WDF147XS
Stackable machines are ideal if you have limited space as you could stack a tumble dryer on top of a washing machine.
You can adjust the height of the machine which means that if the floor is uneven you can level it out.

Washing

1.Has a load sensor
Smeg WDF147XS
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.
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 wider range of programs to choose from you can be more specific and choose the best, most economic program for your needs.
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.
5.has delay start option
Smeg WDF147XS
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
Smeg WDF147XS
This means you can stop the machine if you want to add something you forgot, or get something out that you need urgently.
7.Has a steam option
Smeg WDF147XS
Steam is a quick way to freshen up items that have only been worn for a few hours, or items that smell like food or smoke.
8.noise level spin

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

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.
9.drum volume

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

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

Drying

1.is a condenser dryer
Smeg WDF147XS
Condenser dryers extract the water from the damp air in the dryer and store it in a container. They are good because they can be put anywhere in the home whereas vented dryers should be next to an outside wall.
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.
3.has sensor drying
Smeg WDF147XS
The machine will analyse how much heat is needed in order to dry each specific load, therefore increasing efficiency and saving energy.
4.noise level dryer

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

With a lower noise level for drying there is less disruption and you could use the dryer at night.
5.is a vented dryer
Smeg WDF147XS
Vented dryers are cheaper and can be more efficient than condenser dryers. The damp air extracted travels through a long plastic hose and is discharged outside the home, either through a window or hole in the wall. You don't have to empty a water container like you do with some condenser dryers.
6.machine uses gas
Smeg WDF147XS
Gas dryers are more economical in the long run. They are a good option if you have a gas connection in your laundry room.
7.has auto finish
Smeg WDF147XS
Machines with auto finish will switch off automatically when the laundry is dry. This will prevent overdrying and save on running costs.
With an anti crease spin the machine gently rotates to shake out creases.
9.has a two way tumbler
Smeg WDF147XS
A two way tumbler spins in two directions. This is good for efficient drying and for untangling the load.

Features

The machine will let you know when it is finished with an alarm or even by playing a tune.
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.
The detergent drawer is washed automatically to prevent a build up of old detergent.
4.has a child lock
Smeg WDF147XS
A child lock enables adults to prevent or restrict children’s use of the device.
