The Unique AquaSmart Wash

 

The AquaSmartTM washer has two modes of washing, HE ‘On’ (High Efficiency) and
HE ‘Off’ (Conventional). Both modes start the same way, with a Detergent Activating wash.

Detergent Activating Wash

AquaSmartTM fills the basket at the selected water temperature, with just enough water so the clothes are saturated. This small amount of sudsy water flows through the clothes, up a specially designed portal and back onto the clothes in a waterfall effect. This thoroughly dissolves and activates the detergent.

High Efficiency ON (High Efficiency mode)

In the High Efficiency mode the AquaSmartTM then fills with just enough cool water to lift the clothes off the low-profile agitator so that when it rotates, the clothes gently roll over each other. This wash gives you the benefit of water savings, using similar quantities of water to most front loaders. Select High Efficiency ON.

High Efficiency OFF (Conventional mode)

The Conventional mode is the immersion wash all top-load washer users are familiar with. However, this mode still uses less water than that of other top loaders which utilise the immersion wash. After
the Detergent Activating wash the AquaSmartTM fills with cold water until the clothes are submerged, and gently turns the clothes over. We recommend this mode when the dilution effect of water can solve or prevent common wash problems. For example, when dye or color run can be a problem (ie new, dark-colored garments), or when washing sandy towels. Select High Efficiency OFF.
