Hong Kong – 20 February, 2019 – Samsung Electronics H.K. Co. Ltd today announced the debut of the next generation QuickDrive™ front load washing machines WW70M64FOP and WW90M64FOPW. Equipped with Samsung’s unique QuickDrive™ technology, the latest models can reduce the time for laundry by half, in only 39 minutes to complete the whole laundry process, but without compromising washing performance.
“Samsung is committed to develop innovative and efficient home experience for consumers worldwide. The WW70M64FOP and WW90M64FOPW washing machines have many of Samsung’s outstanding laundry technologies, including revolutionary QuickDrive™ technology, which delivers time and energy saving, and efficient laundry experience to users,” said Ellen Fu, Vice President, CE & Enterprise Business, Samsung Electronics H.K. Co., Ltd.. “Laundry becomes convenient as users can control washing cycle and schedule via a mobile app. By leveraging our leading position in the market, we hope to bring real smart home and IoT living experience to consumers.”
Q-Drum™ Dual-Motor Design Next Level of Cleaning Ability
Samsung’s QuickDrive™ technology cuts washing time by 50%* and energy use by 20%* without compromising the cleaning performance. Its unique Q-Drum™ consists of a large main drum and a plate in the back that rotates independently. It creates a revolutionary dynamic action powered by double forces that quickly, gently and thoroughly remove dirt to deliver an intense and complete wash cycle. WW70M64FOP and WW90M64FOPW washing machines can complete the entire laundry procedure effectively in only 39 minutes, high performance but care the clothes gently at the same time.
The new WW70M64FOP and WW90M64FOPW also have many of Samsung’s outstanding laundry technologies, like Q-Steam high-powered vapor technology. Through QuickDrive™, a powerful steam up to 90°C releases from the bottom of the drum, so every item in the load is thoroughly saturated. This removes engrained dirt and 99.9%** of bacteria and inactivate allergens. Besides, EcoBubble™ provides powerful washing performance by mixing air and water to generate fine detergent bubbles that penetrate fabrics faster and maximize the detergent’s effects even at low temperatures. It also products the colors and the textures of the clothes with energy saving promises. The rinsing time is also shortened using a Speed Spray and “Swirl+ Pattern”*, and by accelerating the spin speed.
Q-Rator AI-Powered Smart Laundry Assistant
Throughout the washing cycle, QuickDrive™ offers a range of smart and convenient features. The IoT-ready WW70M64FOP and WW90M64FOPW boast an AI-powered laundry assistant called Q-Rator, which records users’ preferences and practices#, and enables the best use of QuickDrive™, including:
- Laundry Planner: enables users to manage a laundry finishing time, freeing consumers to control their schedule on their own terms.
- Laundry Recipe: gives automatic recommendations for optimal wash cycles based on the information such as color, fabric type, and degree of soiling inputted by the user, eliminating the need for guessing about which cycle is best.
- HomeCare Wizard: monitors the washer by remote, proactively alerting users about potential problems and providing quick troubleshooting support.
Add Any Item, Any Time
WW70M64FOP and WW90M64FOPW also come with Samsung’s innovative AddWash™, a feature that gives users the ability to add items at any time during the cycle^. From a forgotten sock to a delicate item that needs to go in later in the cycle, AddWash™ even allows users to add detergent or fabric softener at a later time. The combination of the Q-Rator and AddWash™ creates a synergistic effect that further enhances the user convenience, simplifying the laundry process.
Design for Improved Durability
The WW70M64FOPW and WW90M64FOPW have an exceptionally durable design with Eco Drum Clean+. It cleans inside washer and eliminates 99.9%*** of odor-causing bacteria without using harsh chemicals. The frictional force of a powerful water jet and fast spinning also removes dirt from the rubber door gasket. It even notifies users when it needs cleaning.
In addition, the new WW70M64FOPW and WW90M64FOPW are equipped with inverter motor for a quieter and more powerful performance, but consumes less energy than a universal motor.
