Stand Alone/free Standing

I've had a twin tub machine for years but now it might be wearing out. I've seen machines described as stand alone (or is it free standing) but I can't find any information about how they function. Pictures of them look like ordinary front loaders.

What I want to know is are they a sort of halfway house between twin tubs (which need constant supervision), and automatics which follow a program.

Do they need to be "plumbed in" like automatics?

Can anybody advise me or point me towards advice please?

Free standing, or stand alone washing machines, are ordinary automatic washing machines that just stand in a space in the kitchen or under a worktop, whereas built in washing machines are the same, but designed to be built into a fitted kitchen behind cupboard doors. Both need plumbing in.
