Built-in machines have a cabinet door attached to the front of them so that they look like the rest of your kitchen.
Freestanding machines can be seen and the machine can be placed in any position in your kitchen.
Drum size (Kilograms) 7
Type of loading Front loading
This refers to where you can load the washing into the machine. Front loading is when the door is on the front of the machine and top loading is when you put washing in through an opening at the top of the machine.
When purchasing a top loading machine, make sure you have enough room to open the hatch (top loading machines cannot be placed under a worktop). When looking for front loading machines, take note of which way the door opens so that you can make sure you have enough room to take washing in and out of the machine.
