Key Washer Features

Allergen Cycle

Longer cycle with high temperatures that help reduce home dust mite and animal dander levels. Ideal for pillow covers, bed sheets, baby clothes and undergarments.

Antimicrobial Protection

Uses antimicrobial technology to help prevent the growth of odor-causing bacteria. Keeps high-touch areas cleaner, as well as the drum and detergent tray smelling fresher.

Bulk Dispenser

Internal reservoir contains a multi-day supply of detergent or softener and automatically dispenses them during the wash cycle. Saves time and effort filling the trays for each load.

CEE Tier 2+

Ratings of Tier 2 or higher by the Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE) indicate the washer is significantly more energy and water efficient than an ENERGY STAR washer.

Deep Fill

Allows you to over-ride the auto-fill level and add extra water to the wash drum. Ensures heavily soiled or large loads of laundry are saturated before the wash cycle begins.

Delay Start - End

Program the wash cycle to start or end several hours later when you wake up or arrive home. Organize laundry around your schedule, or take advantage of lower, off-peak, utility rates.

ENERGY STAR

Energy Star certified by the EPA to be energy and water efficient. Key efficiency metrics: 2.92 Integrated Modified Energy Factor (IMEF), and 2.9 Integrated Water Factor (IWF).

Fresh Tumble

After the wash cycle ends, the clothes are periodically tumbled for several hours until you are available to unload them. Keeps clothes fresh and reduces wrinkles or musty odors.

High-Efficiency

Employ’s technology that reduces the amount of water and energy required for a load of laundry. Most front load washers, and top load without an agitator, are designated HE.

Interior Light

Equipped with an LED light that illuminates the wash basket when the washer is on but not operating. Helps you find matching socks that seem to go missing until the next wash.

Reversible Door

Some front load washers allow you to switch the door to open from either the left or right side. Provides installation flexibility and prevents the door from blocking the dryer.

Sanitize Cycle

For nasty clothes, bedding, and towels requiring sanitization. Uses extra-hot water and a longer cycle time to help kill the most common household bacteria.

Smart Washer

Wi-Fi enabled with app control to remotely activate and operate your washer, receive cycle status notifications, and perform remote diagnostics for repairs.

Soft-Close Lid

Some top load washers have a window lid that closes gently and quietly with springs or hydraulics. Allows you to visually monitor laundry and reduces lid bang or finger pinches.

Sound & Vibration Control

Employ’s control technologies such as sensors, balancers, or dampers. These additional features help reduce both washer sound and vibration.

Stackable

Matching dryer can be positioned on top of this washer with a low-cost washer-dryer stacking kit. Perfect for those with limited space or wanting more storage area.

Stainless Steel Drum

Steel wash baskets are more durable than washers with plastic or porcelain-enamel designs. Sustains higher spin speeds and won’t chip or rust.

Steam Option

Deeply penetrates clothing to remove grime and achieve a cleaner wash. Gentler on fabrics than other stain-removing cycles and produces a softening affect that reduces wrinkles.

Water Faucet

Internal faucet allows you to pre-scrub stained or soiled clothes right at the washer opening. Convenient feature, especially if you don’t have a laundry sink nearby.

Water Heater

Internal heater boost’s water temperature beyond your home’s hot water tank for cycles such as steam, allergen, or sanitize. Helps maintain optimum cycle temperatures.
