Washing Flexibility

Aside from the 10kg washing capacity, this Electrolux washing machine boasts 15 wash programs, so there is literally one to suit every load. The wash programs range from everything like Delicate to Bedding, Mixed, Cotton to Sports, Daily 60 and Tub Clean.

UltraMix Detergent Technology

The washing machine’s UltraMix technology ensures detergent is fully dissolved before it reaches your garments, which also helps to reduce colour fading by up to 31%, even when using cold water. With the washing machine’s maximum 1400 rotations per minute spin speed, your clothes can get a generous amount of spin to remove soiling.

Sensor Washing

Featuring SensorWash technology, the sensors within the washing machine’s drum detects soiling levels to adjust the washing time for efficient results. This also helps reduce unnecessary wear on your garments, so you can enjoy them for longer.

Specialised Functions

Variety of Programs

OKOMix Detergent Technology

OKOMix ensures the detergent and fabric softener is evenly mixed with the water before it enters the washing machine’s drum. This makes it easier for all fibres of your garments to be washed with the right amount of detergent. With a maximum 1600 rotations per minute spin speed, effectively manage any soiling and stain.

Sensor Washing

This AEG front load washing machine features ProSense sensor technology which senses and adjusts the wash cycle’s time, water and energy consumption. As the wash times are monitored and adjusted, your garments suffer less wear and tear for longer lasting enjoyment.

Steam Refresh

When your garments don’t need a proper wash and just need a refresh, the washing machine’s Steam Refresh program will satisfy. Revitalise clothes without the need for water or detergent for a quicker way to enjoy them again.
