Large capacity

Designed with families, bulky items and those who often leave washes until they're long-overdue, in mind, this machine offers a generous 12kg load capacity, without taking up additional space in your kitchen.

Smart technology

Manage your washing machine cycles, water and electricity consumption from your smartphone, thanks to Smart ThinQ™. This innovative smart technology not only enables you to avoid returning home to a machine full of damp smelling clothing, but can also troubleshoot any minor issues before they become a bigger problem.

Reduced water consumption

Thanks to its use of steam particles, which penetrate fabrics more effectively that water droplets in order to wash your clothes, this machine requires a reduced rate of water consumption  in order to function effectively. In addition to positive environmental impacts, this can also be helpful in reducing bills.

This technology, when used in conjunction with the specialised Turbowash setting, can reduced energy consumption by up to 15 per cent and water consumption by up to 40 per cent.

Additional features

On top of all this, it offers specialist cycles for dark washes, delicate washes, hand washing, sportswear, wool and much more.
