We tested washing and drying performance using a 3.5kg load. Our research has found this is about the average amount people wash at one time regardless of their machine’s capacity.
We washed specially stained swatches attached to a load of sheets, towels and pillow cases using a normal cold wash cycle. After washing, we measured how much dirt was removed from each swatch. We did this with a spectrophotometer (which measures how much light reflects off the swatches). It’s more accurate than the human eye.
We then ran a drying cycle (also with a 3.5kg load) and measured how much energy was used to dry the load as well as how long it took.

Good washing performance, fast spin cycle so some thinner lightweight clothes almost come out dry (icebreaker etc)
Pretty quiet while operating, can pause and add things you have forgotten
Takes a long time to dry clothes on auto mode although rather than using the sensor you can manually add a time (30 mins 60 mins) and that seems to work fine. Also after the dryers time has finished it goes into CD (cool down mode) and takes another hour or so.
On mix load with time saver (our saved favourite) it takes 52minutes to wash and spin, But if timer says 52 minutes it seems to be closer to an hour.
Yes, I recommend this product.
