WashSmart™ 8.5kg

WashSmart™ Front Loader utilises our SmartDrive™ technology to eliminate the belt drive, delivering the ultimate clothes care. Using our direct drive motor this washer is whisper quiet. A revolutionary Vortex wash gets clothes cleaner faster. In fact the majority of the 13 cycles when set to wash at a temperature 30°c or lower will complete the cycle in well under an hour.

Features & Benefits

Timed Liquid Detergent Dispenser

Timed Liquid Detergent Dispenser

Designed for use with the pre-wash program, a dedicated liquid detergent dispenser ensures liquid detergents are distributed into the wash at exactly the right time in the cycle to optimise wash performance. 

Whisper Quiet

Whisper Quiet

SmartDrive™ technology uses a direct drive motor that removes the need for belts, pulleys and the traditional block of concrete to hold the machine down in spin cycle. Without these old components, SmartDrive™ washers are more reliable, produce less vibration and noise levels are reduced to a whisper quiet. 

SmartTouch™ Control Dial

SmartTouch™ Control Dial

The SmartTouch™ Control Dial is your interface to SmartDrive™ Technology. It distils 21 years of SmartDrive development into a user-friendly interface, to deliver and expert wash every time through 9 and 13 pre-programmed wash cycles.

Hot and Cold Fill

Hot and Cold Fill

Unlike many other Front Loaders ours can be installed with both hot and cold water inlets. This gives the option of cold water heated in the washer, or both hot and cold direct from the inlet, for better energy efficiency and quicker wash cycles.
