Design

1.front loading machine
Smeg WMFABRO1

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

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

5.top loading machine
Smeg WMFABRO1

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.

For example

Maytag Centennial MVWC360AW

6.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.

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.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.

Best

Gorenje W9865E

3.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

4.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

5.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
