4 Reasons For
Has a Load Balancing System
The Smeg WDF147 has a load balancing system. Most of the other washer dryers of this age and spec do not have a load balancing system.
We compared all the other washer dryers with a load balancing system to this washer dryer and we think the Bosch WVH28360 (£499.99) which is cheaper; or the Electrolux EWX147410W (£599.00) which has a better Rating are also worth considering.
Six Drying Programs
Most medium washing capacity washer dryers that came out more than two years ago have between 2 and 11 drying programs, including the Smeg WDF147 which has six drying programs.
Quite Wide Door Opening Angle
The narrowest door opening angle of medium washing capacity washer dryers that have been available for around the same time as the WDF147 is 160°, the widest is 180°, and the average door opening angle is 170°. The Smeg WDF147 has one of the wider door opening angles (180 degrees) amongst washer dryers of this age.
Quite Low Annual Water Consumption When Washing
With an annual water consumption when washing of only 9,400 liters, the Smeg WDF147 has one of the lower annual water consumptions when washing amongst similar spec washer dryers of this age. The lowest annual water consumption when washing of washer dryers that have been available for a comparable time to the WDF147 is 900L and the highest is 19,000L.
6 Reasons Against
A Bit Expensive
One Smeg WDF147 owner wrote in their reviews that the Smeg WDF147 was not good value for money. Mrs. Jill M. Holmes gave it a rating of 20 out of 100 and she mentioned “Over priced, unreliable”.
Does Not Have a Reversible Door
Like most of the other medium washing capacity washer dryers that came out more than two years ago, the Smeg WDF147 does not have a reversible door.
Very Small Drying Capacity
Across all the comparable spec washer dryers that have been on the market for a similar time to the WDF147 the drying capacities range from 4kg to 7kg. With a drying capacity of only 4 kilograms, the Smeg WDF147 has a quite small drying capacity compared to most of the other washer dryers of this spec and age.
We compared all the other 4kg drying capacity washer dryers to this washer dryer and we think the Electrolux EWX127410W (£619.49), and the Zanussi ZWT71401WA (£342.00) which has a better Rating; or the Bosch WVH28360 (£499.99) which is cheaper are also worth considering.
Washer dryers with a larger drying capacity that might also be worth looking at include the Hotpoint CAWD129 (£765.28) (5kg), or the Indesit IWDD 7123 (£344.99) (5kg) which is also higher rated.
Very Small Door Opening Diameter
The Smeg WDF147 has a quite small door opening diameter (only 300 millimeters) compared to most of the other medium washing capacity washer dryers that were launched more than two years ago. The average door opening diameter of similar spec washer dryers that have been available for a comparable time to the WDF147 is 320mm.
+3 More reasons against
Only 15 Washing Programs
The Smeg WDF147 is a 15 washing program washer dryer. Most of the other washer dryers of this spec and age have between 15 and 22 washing programs.
Fairly Long Washing & Drying Cycle Time
At 390 minutes, the Smeg WDF147 has a quite long washing & drying cycle time compared to most of the other washer dryers of this spec and age. The washing & drying cycle times of comparable spec washer dryers that are a similar age to the WDF147 range from 120 min to 480 min.
