Design

1.front loading machine
Smeg WMFAB16AZ

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

Dot matrix displays can show important text or graphics using a matrix of lights or mechanical indicators like the display on a calculator.

3.There is the option to adjust the height of the machine

You can adjust the height of the machine which means that if the floor is uneven you can level it out.

30cm

With a larger door it is easier to load or unload the machine especially with something big like a duvet or a winter coat.

Washing

1.maximum spin speed

1600rpm

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
Smeg WMFAB16AZ

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.number of cycle programs

15

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

4.laundry capacity

5kg

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

5.has a pause option
Smeg WMFAB16AZ

This means you can stop the machine if you want to add something you forgot, or get something out that you need urgently.

6.has delay start option

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.
