ActiveIntelligence™ technology

ActiveIntelligence™ technology

ActiveIntelligence™ technology provides ideal wash conditions. Intelligent sensors determine load size and soil level before dispensing just the right amount of detergent and adjusting the wash time for optimal fabric care.

Detergent auto-dosing

Detergent auto-dosing

Auto-dose mode dispenses just the right amount of liquid detergent based on the size of your load, with the added convenience of not needing to fill the dispenser for every wash.


Quick cycles

Quick cycles

When time is short, you can select a quick 30 minute wash without compromising cleaning and fabric care. Vortex Wash allows most cycles to take less than 1 hour to complete. Water is forced from the bottom of the drum, so detergent and heat reach your clothes faster, cleaning quickly and avoiding over-washing.

Wash larger loads

Wash larger loads

The large 12kg drum can wash both small and large loads as well as bulky items like a king size feather duvet. The wide door opening makes it easy to load and unload. The benefit of a large capacity is time saving, as a full week’s laundry can be done in just a few loads. Accurate water level sensing makes it highly efficient at washing different load sizes.

Designed to match
