Key features

  • The WashSense Technology ensures a good cleaning by penetrating deep into the fabric.
  • The Advanced Rinsed Technology uses fresh water for the final rinse to ensure that odors are eliminated, white fabrics are at their whitest, and that allergens are removed.
  • The Balance Control System reduces the vibration to reduce the noise level allowing you to place the machine anywhere in the house without having to worry about the noise.
  • Express Select controls allow you to set the controls with one touch of a button.
  • The Quick Cycle feature allows you to wash clothes in as short as 25 minutes.
  • The Add-a-Garment feature allows you to pause the cycle, open the machine, and add additional items of clothing inside.
  • The TimeWise Technology will give you an idea how long the cycles last. Washing time is the same as drying time.
  • Automatic settings are possible if you save the settings you use most often. The machine remembers the settings and uses it for regular loads.
  • The energy-saver option reduces water and power consumption. This is one of the useful options that also includes Power Clean for deep-cleaning of fabrics.
  • NSF certification means that the machine can remove 99% of bacteria from fabrics.
  • The delay start option allows you to set the machine by programming it from 1
    to 14 hours.
  • The stylish white finish gives this machine an elegant look.


  • One of the best features of this machine is the NSF certification.
  • Users have reported a great decrease in the number of allergic reactions especially when it comes to fabrics for babies.
  • The Add-a-Garment option is also another favorite feature.
  • Loading is very easy with the wide opening.
  • The adjustable legs allow you to customize the height of the unit according to what is comfortable.
  • The white finish is very stylish.


  • The drum tends to chip and rust after two years of use, which is not good because it causes tears and tangles in the fabric.
  • Rust discolors fabrics, especially whites, and this does not come off easily.
  • The machine also tends to "eat up" smaller items of clothing such as socks and hankies, and these usually clog up the drainage system of the machine.
  • The lint filter also does not do a very good job at catching all the lint from the load, so that from time to time, regular cleaning of the filter is needed.
