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.

Washing

1.number of cycle programs

21

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.laundry capacity

7kg

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

LG WD1252RW

12kg

3.maximum spin speed

1400rpm

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

Miele WT2789i

1600rpm

4.Has a load sensor

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.

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.maximum delay start

24hrs

This is the maximum amount of time you can set the machine to begin in the future.

Best
