Dirt removal (50%): Calculated according to a formula in the standard, which reduces the score in proportion to the variability of dirt removal over a range of test swatches in the wash load.
Water efficiency (10%): Based on the amount of water used in the whole cycle, per kg of clothes.
Rinse performance (20%): Based on the amount of detergent residues after rinsing.
Spin efficiency (10%): Calculated from the amount of water remaining (per kg) in the damp clothes.
Gentleness (10%): Calculated from the amount of wear on easily frayed squares of cloth.

This washing machine is the most expensive but also the worst washing machine that I've ever purchased. We had 2 out of-box-failures when delivered/installed. Often clothes come out dirty and covered in lint. Parts of the clothes actually come out dry - they haven't touched water. To get a decent wash we have to manipulate the programmes - select sheets, heavy wash, eco turned, off for everything, otherwise clothes still come out dirty. I'm going to sell this and buy something else. Avoid like the plague. F&P want nothing to do with it, claiming its fine. There's nothing good about this machine
No, this product has too many drawbacks.
