An internal water heater ensures the right temperature to sanitize clothes and leave them virtually bacteria free. In addition, the internal water heater activates sanitize cycle for NSF-certified 99.9 percent bacteria-free laundry*. This ensures the right water temperature for optimal cleaning performance.
