Overall score includes:
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.

Virtually everything - I don't know where they get their spin efficiency rating from, the first time I used the machine the clothes were so dry after the spin that I wasn't sure whether the machine had washed the clothes. And btw, the fact that it is designed to last for twenty years is surely relevant.
Yes, I recommend this product.
