Does an excellent job of cleaning clothes.
Has the ability to programme a delayed start so that washing and drying can be done in one step at night using low electricity tariffs.
Ideal for apartment living as it takes up so little space and the condenser dryer doesn't require venting.
Heats its own water on warm washes rather than use hot water from the household cylinder. This may be a disadvantage for some, especially if you have a cheaper means to heat your hot water.
Excessively noisey on the highest spin speed on wooden floors.
Delayed timer must be set to when you want the load to finish not when you want it to start, annoying when you are trying to schedule its use for low electricity tariffs.
Stops the clock when a load is out of balance and re-starts the countdown time when it has re-balanced the load. This can add a considerable amount of time to a cycle and make it almost impossible to "guess" the finished times for programming a delayed start.
The 2 express cycles don't rinse clothes as well as the other cycles.
Heats the water for warm washes.
Maybe, it depends on what you're after.
Miele is the standout brand for front loaders, while LG’s front- and top-loading machines perform strongly.
