    There are 14 wash programs in total, including both conventional and specialty programs (such as denim). You should also pay attention to the Colours 15 program, which guarantees high quality washing of coloured clothing at just 15 degrees Celsius.

The additional warranty covers only appliances that are registered on the official website.

    One of the model’s features is the patented SensiCare system, which is present in all Perfect Care washing machines. The appliance automatically corrects the washing cycle time, water and electricity consumption depending on the amount of laundry loaded. This not only saves resources, but also prevents clothes from “washing out”, preserving their appearance for a long time.

    The Softer+ option ensures crispness and softness after washing, because the laundry is soaked evenly before being wrung out, and only then is conditioner added from the drawer.

    Another option “Time manager” will reduce the washing time by up to 50% and save resources, guaranteeing the same quality as the standard cycle. This option is recommended for small amounts of laundry with light to medium soiling.
