Samsung brings flexibility to the laundry with FlexWash®
Oct 17. 2017
Wash multiple loads at once, with both a top and front loader in one machine
Samsung Electronics Australia has today announced the Australian launch of FlexWash® , an all-in-one washing machine that breaks new ground for Samsung, helping busy households save time and make laundry management easy.
Offering a total laundry capacity of up to 18.5kg, the Wi-Fi enabled FlexWash® incorporates both a top and front loader washing machine in an all-in-one design that will allow Australians to wash two separate loads at once.1 Furthermore, the front loader also offers the ability to add items during the wash with Samsung’s popular AddWash™ door.2
“FlexWash® combines the benefits of having two separate washing machines with both a front and top loader in a beautiful all-in-one design. It will help Australian households manage their separate laundry loads and help save them time with the ability to run two wash cycles at the same time.” said Jeremy Senior, Director, Home Appliances Samsung Electronics Australia.
Flexibility and Ease
To power through laundry loads big or small, FlexWash® features both a 2.5kg top loader and 16kg front loader. FlexWash® is ideal for washing separate smaller loads, such as sports uniforms, business shirts, plus whites or darks at the same time as well as everyday loads and bulky items such as bedding.
Connectivity and control
FlexWash® has Smart Wi-Fi control so you can start, stop, and change cycles via a compatible smartphone1.
“FlexWash® Wi-Fi connectivity also allows people to monitor and control their machine remotely via their compatible smartphone, smartwatch or wearable, or even the Samsung Family Hub refrigerator,” Senior added.
Samsung recently commissioned research3 into Australian laundry habits and found that the average Australian household does about five loads of washing a week. The study also found that three in four Australians separate their delicates from their main washing in multiple ways: almost a third of Australians put delicates in a separate bag before washing, a third separate and wash delicates by hand, and almost as many will do another load on a specific cycle.
FlexWash® delivers the flexibility of being able to wash two loads at the same time; your separates in the top loader and your everyday wash in the front loader. Alternatively you can decide to wash as you go, in the small top loader or when the basket is well and truly full in the XXL front loader. For those last minute items, the front loader has 15 minute Quick Wash for up to 2kg of laundry, so you can spend less time on chores and more time on life.
The easy-to-reach top-loader allows users to comfortably load or unload laundry. The transparent glass on the top-load compartment makes it easy to check on laundry cycles at a glance. The ergonomic design of FlexWash® was recently recognised winning the first Ergonomic Design Award “Grand Prix” from ACED (Asian Conference on Ergonomics and Design)
FlexWash® uses three core Samsung laundry technologies including Quick Wash, BubbleWash™ and Vibration Reduction Technology (VRT). Quick Wash can shorten the wash cycle to as little as 15 minutes when washing up to 2kg of laundry. BubbleWash™ generates foam by pre-mixing detergent with air and water to create bubbles, before entering the drum. VRT is engineered to minimise vibration and help keep the noise level down.
For ease of installation and simple setup FlexWash® is one full machine, only requiring 2 water outlets (one hot and one cold), one power outlet and no screws.
FlexWash® is available now from Harvey Norman, The Good Guys and selected major retailers with an RRP of $3,499.
