Smooth Balance™ Suspension System
Vibration is reduced and noise significantly lessened with the Smooth-Balance suspension commercial technology, even at the fastest spin.
IntelliFill Automatic Water Level Sensor
Automatic adjustments are made by sensors that regulate the intake of water into the washer, based on the size of the lead, the wash cycle selected and the size of the load. By using less water, you'll save money on natural resources while still delivering improved cleaning performance
This high efficiency feature causes clothes to gently and continuously move throughout the whole wash tub by means of a wash-plate with ‘fins’ at the base of the wash basket, which is much gentler on the clothes than the traditional agitator
Deep Clean Option
You will find extra cleaning performance with this deep rinse feature.
