Washer Highlights

Interior Features

  • The washer is qualified for Energy Starand is rated CEE Tier III, which means it meets the guidelines set by federal law on energy efficiency on appliances. That means you get savings on utility costs and do your bit in saving natural resources.

  • Its built-in Adaptive Vibration Control or AVC mechanism is a feature that prevents the machine from producing too much noise or vibration. No matter where you install this washer, the mechanism adjusts its spin patterns so you can enjoy silent operations without the usual mechanical rumbling or shaking.

  • The Adaptive fill feature lets the washer fill the interior basin with the right amount of water corresponding to the load. With this automatic function, you are assured of not wasting any water.

    Exterior Features

  • The washer is equipped with a see-thru glass door which allows you to have a view of the washer’s interior even when it is in the middle of the cycle. The glass window has a circular dark chrome frame. You can open and close the washer’s door through the TrueGrip handle that prevents slipping and easy maneuvering.

  • The control panel located above the washer door has an LED cycle countdown and LED cycle status lights that inform you of the remaining time in a cycle.
