Duet 4.3-cu ft High-Efficiency Front-Load Washer with Steam Cycle (Stainless Look) ENERGY STAR

  • Let the washer select the right amount of detergent with the removable detergent reservoir that precisely dispenses up to 12 loads in one easy fill. Additional reservoirs are available so you can easily switch between detergents
  • Active Spray technology sprays the load with detergent in a cone shaped pattern to completely and evenly cover the fabrics - virutally eliminating the need to pretreat your clothes
  • Adaptive wash action system uses up to 16 different tub motions, from rocking to tumbling which provide a combination of powerful cleaning and gentle fabric care for everything from jeans to delicate silks
  • The Care Control temperature management system enabled by 6th Sense™ technology helps protect your clothes by controlling water amount and temperature
  • EcoBoost option lowers water temperature and increases the tumbling action to use less energy while still delivering great cleaning and gentle performance
  • 12-hour FanFresh® option with Dynamic Venting Technology® - when selected, a built-in fan automatically activates after the wash cycle is over, tumbling clothes for up to 12 hours so you can wash and dry a small load right in the washer
  • Quiet spin 360 technology - now you can place your laundry pair virtually anywhere and be assured of balanced performance and vibration control; the washer takes into account where it's installed and adapts to improve its balance over time
  • Steam-enhanced cycles: add the power of steam to select wash cycles to eliminate tough stains with virtually no pretreating
  • The allergen cycle has been tested to remove up to 95% of harmful allergens from your clothes
