4 Reasons For
Has a Load Balancing System
The Smeg WDF147 has a load balancing system, unlike most of the other medium washing capacity washer dryers that have been available for more than two years which 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 WVH2836S[pl_1657939_price], and the WVH28360[pl_3180225_price] both from Bosch or the Electrolux EWX147410W[plb_2053171_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
Six Drying Programs
The Smeg WDF147 is a six drying program washer dryer. Most of the other washer dryers of a similar age and spec to the WDF147 have between 2 and 24 drying programs.
Fairly Wide Door Opening Angle
Medium washing capacity washer dryers that have been available for a comparable time to the WDF147 have door opening angles of between 110° and 180°. At 180 degrees, the Smeg WDF147 has a quite wide door opening angle compared to most of the other washer dryers of this spec and age.
Quite Low Annual Water Consumption When Washing
The lowest annual water consumption when washing of medium washing capacity washer dryers that have been around for more than two years is 900L and the highest is 20,000L. With an annual water consumption when washing of only 9,400 liters, the Smeg WDF147 has a quite low annual water consumption when washing compared to most of the other washer dryers of a comparable type and age to the WDF147.
4 Reasons Against
A Bit Expensive
One Smeg WDF147 reviewer thought the product was not good value for money. Last year Mrs. Jill M. Holmes wrote “Over priced, unreliable” in her review of the Smeg WDF147.
Does Not Have a Reversible Door
Most washer dryers of a similar spec and age to the WDF147 do not have a reversible door. The Smeg WDF147 is no exception to this as it too does not have a reversible door.
Very Small Drying Capacity
Washer dryers of this age and type have drying capacities of between 4kg and 7kg. At only 4 kilograms, the Smeg WDF147 has a fairly small drying capacity compared to most of the other washer dryers that were released more than two years ago.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other 4kg drying capacity washer dryers currently available including because of it's better review score, the AEG L61470[plb_1265802_price], the Electrolux EWX127410W[plb_1651482_price], or the Bosch WVH2836S[plb_1657939_price].
If this Smeg washer dryer drying capacity is too small for you then you might want to consider the Hotpoint CAWD129[plb_2687651_price] (5kg) which also has a higher rating.
Very Small Door Opening Diameter
At only 300 millimeters, the Smeg WDF147 has a fairly small door opening diameter compared to most of the other comparable spec washer dryers that have been available for a similar time to the WDF147. The average door opening diameter of washer dryers of a similar age and type to the WDF147 is 320mm.
