Our test is based on the standard AS/NZS 2040:1998, and was completed using machines filled with 3.5kg loads.
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.
Noise (dBA) is the loudest reading (spin).
Wash cycle time (min) is the normal or regular cycle on the cold setting.
Annual running cost ($) assumes one “normal” wash cycle per day and electricity at 26c/kWh.
Price is from a December 2018 survey.

Moved to a front loader after our top loader died. Chose this model because of price (on sale) and the fact that you can load additional things after the cycle has started. Really happy with it so far. I like the wide range of cycle options & it's much quieter than our old machine. It's easy to keep clean & does a really good job of stubborn dirt removal, especially when combining normal washing powder with a specialty stain remover for really bad stains or white shirts. The bubble soak and mult-rinse options are great & I never ever have any lint problems now. Also like the drum clean cycle.
Takes a bit longer to complete cycles than our old top-loader did, but the results are way better. Otherwise, no cons that I've experienced so far.
Yes, I recommend this product.
