Is a front-load washing machine more reliable and energy efficient?

What makes our front-load machines more durable and efficient is the motor.

Specially designed drums also improve water flow during the cycle, which makes for even more efficient washing and shorter wash times.

Myth 2: Front-load washing machines use less water and don’t clean as well

Our front-loaders have in-built sensors that measure the weight of your laundry and automatically adjust the amount of water needed. So they use the perfect amount of water for each cycle. Just because the water isn’t visible inside the machine doesn’t mean your clothes aren’t getting the deep clean they deserve.

The optimum temperature for deep cleaning clothes

Washing with lower temperatures has the added benefit of keeping vibrant colours brighter for longer.


UltraMix technology - Electrolux

Electrolux washing machines give you exceptional deep cleaning results at temperatures as low as 30 degrees. This is because our patented UltraMix™ technology pre-mixes the water and detergent before it enters the drum, so detergent is fully dissolved and activated before it meets your clothes.

What’s the difference between front-load washing machines and top-load washing machines?

Top-loading machines have a lid on top and laundry is added from above. Front loaders have a door and laundry is placed inside the drum from the front. Front-loaders are increasing in popularity because not only do they save space, they are also more economical as they save on water, electricity and detergent.

How can I avoid tangling of my clothes?

How can I avoid tangling of my clothes

Front-load machines use a tumbling action, so clothes tend to tangle less in comparison to top-load washers which use a spinning action. You can also prevent tangling by avoiding mixing heavy items with light items, putting delicates into a mesh bag and not overloading the machine. Our front-loaders have sensors which measure the weight of each load to help you avoid this.
