87kWh

5.water consumption annual

6.has aqua stop
Smeg WMFABP1

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.

Design

1.front loading machine
Smeg WMFABP1

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
Smeg WMFABP1

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
Smeg WMFABP1

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

4.door diameter

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.

Best

LG F1255FD

43cm

5.door opening angle

110°

With a door that opens wide it is easier to load or unload the machine without the door becoming an obstacle.

Best

Hoover DST10146PG

180°

Washing

1.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

Asko W6884ECO

1800rpm

2.Has a load sensor
Smeg WMFABP1

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.noise level spin

78dB

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.

Best

Haier MS1050A

45dB

4.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

Samsung WF405ATPASU

17kg

5.noise level wash

59dB

With a lower noise level for washing you can worry less about disruption and may be able to do a wash at night or while reading.

Best

Asko W6984Fi

41dB

6.has a pause option
Smeg WMFABP1

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

Features

1.has an end of cycle signal
Smeg WMFABP1

The machine will let you know when it is finished with an alarm or even by playing a tune.

2.has self cleaning detergent drawer
Smeg WMFABP1
