On the side, physical buttons allow you to perform basic operations such as starting or pausing the machine, but also to program a delayed end to 24h: you choose when you want the machine to stop, and she will get started. Convenient to avoid leaving the laundry too long in the device!
Level efficiency, no complaints, the stains are treated as well. On the other hand, he still suffers from a slight defect: apart from his 15-minute express program, his treatment times are long. It is impossible to determine an in-between, between this very fast wash that may not be able to overcome some stains, and longer traditional cycles.
Spinning at 1400 rpm seems to manage effectively, since the laundry leaves less wet than other models, and dries more quickly.
Energy level, this machine belongs to the A +++ class, with a cotton program consumption of around 0.72 kWh. It's more than some of its competitors, but it's still ok.
On the other hand, it is quite noisy, with a sound level in the wash at 57 dB and 77 dB in the spin. If it remains manageable, this noise can really become annoying if you put it in a living room. A tip, by the way: do not forget to remove the holds with which it is delivered, because they are enormously moving the machine, and the noise is increased tenfold.
