Electrolux Washers

If you choose to invest in an Electrolux washer to complete your laundry repertoire, you'll be bringing home some of the highest-tier cleaning and stain removal capabilities on the market. Electrolux’s selection of washers is certainly more limited than other manufacturers; however, each model is uniquely designed to deliver supreme washing performance with impeccable cleaning results. With a lineup solely consisting of front load models, Electrolux washing machines are built for those who desire a more modern take on doing laundry. And speaking of modern capabilities, every Electrolux washer is also Energy Star Certified, meaning you’ll save more on your utility’s expenses, as well as leaving less of an impact on the planet. Along with a passionate dedication to sustainability, here are some of the state-of-the-art washing features that certain Electrolux washers come equipped with to instantly enhance your laundry game:

LuxCare: This standard washing feature enhances overall agitation, water temperature, and load sensing for a complete clean. 

SmartBoost: By pre-mixing detergent with water during the wash cycle, this feature optimizes washing performance. 

Perfect Steam: By creating steam that rises from the bottom of the washer, this feature softly penetrates fabrics for an added boost of stain-fighting power. 

Adaptive Dispenser: You’ll achieve the best cleaning results with the industry’s first Adaptive Dispenser that takes any form of detergent, whether it’s pods, liquid, or powder. 

StainSoak: Simply choose the specific type of stain you’d like to remove, and the washer will run the appropriate cycle accordingly with customized tumbling and agitation. 

Sanitize Option: This feature eliminates 99 percent of bacteria and 95 percent of allergens in every load.  

Perfect Balance System: No matter where the unit is placed, Electrolux’s Perfect Balance System provides complete stabilization and allows you to run wash cycle after cycle without any disruptions.

LG Washers

LG washers are quickly becoming one of the most sought-out laundry appliances in the industry today. With an LG washer, you’ll instantly benefit from advanced washing features that make laundry day more effective and efficient than ever before. And unlike Electrolux, the brand has a much more diverse selection of washing machines to choose from including front load, top load, and even stackable options. Top load washers from LG come in a minimum capacity of 4.3 cubic feet, while front load models start at 4.5 cubic feet meaning that even their base models offer ample capacity, making them ideal for busy households that go through countless loads throughout the week. And when it comes to washing performance, LG is, no doubt, one of the best in the game due to its intricate collection of fabric-cleaning capabilities. Here are just some of the exceptional features that LG washers showcase to help make laundry day an absolute breeze:

TurboWash 360: A combination of agitator action, spray jets, and tub movement finish a full load in just over 30 minutes.

TurboWash3D: An added premium feature that uses five powerful jets to effectively wash complete loads in around 30 minutes.

6Motion Technology: Provides precise, enhanced wash tub actions thanks to six unique wash motions.

TrueBalance: Innovative balancing technology that reduces noise operation during wash cycles so that nothing is disrupted.

Smart Pairing: Certain LG washers can sync with an LG dryer via Wi-Fi for optimized dry cycles based on the specific kind of wash.

LG ThinQ: Wi-Fi-connected capabilities that can all be controlled from the convenience of a smart device.

Allergiene Cycle: Effectively eliminates up to 95 percent of common allergens on clothes by utilizing steam.
