Quick cycles

Quick cycles

Vortex Wash speeds up the cleaning process so most cycles take less than an hour to complete. During the tumble action, water is forced from the bottom of the drum up through your clothes so detergent and heat reach your fabric faster.

Intelligent washing

Intelligent washing

Our world-first SmartDrive™ technology uses a motor that constantly provides feedback to a computer which controls the tumble and spin action, resulting in a quicker, quieter and more reliable wash.

Quiet performer

Quiet performer

Using a direct drive motor removes the need for belts, pulleys and the traditional block designed to hold down the machine. Without these heavy components, there are less vibrations for a quieter wash.

Energy efficient

Energy efficient

Our front loaders can be installed with both hot and cold water inlets allowing for better energy efficiency and quicker wash cycles. Cold water can be heated within the washer or hot water can be drawn directly from your plumbing.

Timed dispenser

Timed dispenser

A liquid dispenser ensures detergent is distributed at exactly the right time in the cycle to optimize wash performance.

Easy to use
