There’s a new sheriff in town toting a gold star from the the coveted Best in Show award at the 2016 KBIS. Electrolux stole the show with their EFLS617STT Perfect Steam Washer with LuxCare Wash and SmartBoost, but what’s so great about it?
The Electrolux 617 series washer packs a punch and does everything it can to get those stubborn stains out, but it still manages to meat the strictest criteria for efficiency that Energy Star has to offer. High-efficiency (HE) washers are known for saving you more money, water, and energy per load, but this pushes that even farther.
The Electrolux Perfect Steam Washer can save you 40 gallons of water per week. A portion of this “saving” capability comes from it’s massive 4.4 cu. ft. drum capacity. This washer fits a king sized comforter so you can wash more per load and save water and energy, which both save money. It’s a chain of positivity and we are positively loving it.
Electrolux’s SmartBoost function mixes water and detergent before the cycle begins so the homogeneous solution can better penetrate those tough stains. This is an industry innovation that cut down wash time and delivers an even solution to your load for a more even clean.
This, coupled with steam cleaning, delivers industry leading results. The steam rises from the bottom of the drum to gently life stains and dirt from your load. The fibers expand with the application of heat, allowing the cycle to more easily remove the stains. The washer runs on the LuxCare Wash System which offers convenient functions like temperature control, smart load sensing capabilities, and advanced wash actions.
The controls are smooth and easy to use with a knob feature that’s both visually pleasing, and user-friendly. You can use the knob to select your preferred cycle and the display will indicate the duration of that cycle. There are other options on the left of the knob that allow you to select the specifications of the wash cycle with choices for temperature, soil level, spin and a couple of cool extra features (such as “wrinkle release” and “delay start”).
The best part about the cycle in the washer is the variety that’s offered. There are longer deep clean cycles and then there is the 15-Minute Fast Wash cycle.
Despite its speed, this cycle delivers a clean result, however, you shouldn’t put a horrifically stained shirt in this cycle. Clothes with great soiling will need a longer cycle, as usual, but this is a great option for clothes that you need to wash and wear quickly that need to be refreshed. There’s also a Sanitize option that will remove 99% of bacteria and 95% of allergens so you can be sure you’re clothes are safe and clean, on the surface and on the bacterial scale.
The Front Load Perfect Steam Washer is designed to fit almost anywhere you want. It has a reversible door and a standard 27″ platform so you can stack it and store it, or arrange it horizontally on your floor.
Electrolux is so confident that you’ll love the reliability, performance and look of their new washer, that it’s backed by their ten-year motor and lifetime tub warranty.
The Front Load Perfect Steam Washers with LuxCare Wash and SmartBoost offer a high-efficiency wash using innovative steam technology, a beautiful interface, and a freedom of configuration.
Clean and easy– that’s an winning combination in our book so this model is worth a look at if you’re in the market for a new washer.
