A machine so intelligent that it senses the average fabric mix of the load and creates the optimum wash cycle based on what it 'feels'. With sophisticated electronics and a revolutionary direct drive motor, Fisher & Paykel Intuitive Eco is born out of 70 years of laundry innovation.
The Smart Drive system connects a programmable motor directly to the agitator by a single stainless steel shaft. There are no belts, gears or pulleys to break down. The clothes washer senses each load, sets the water level and adjusts the wash action to produce a superior wash.
With a top spin speed of 1000 RPM, this washer reduces drying time by up to 30%. A time saver option allows you to wash lightly soiled items in less time, and through load sensing, the perfect amount of water is used every time.
The durable lid is injected with a glass bead-filled SAN core and virgin ABS skin to provide a non scratching surface to work on. A removable lid and agitator makes the task of cleaning simple. There's no need t o empty slimy lint traps either as the automatic lint filter ensures lint is pumped out with the wash water.
For delicate items the system operates at very slow agitate speeds. This means you can machine wash clothes you would normally only hand wash.
This washer uses 219 kWh/yr and has an estimated yearly operating cost of $23.32.
The estimated yearly operating cost is based on doing 8 laundry loads a week and the 2007 national average electricity cost of $.1065 per kWh. Your operating cost will depend on your utility rates and usage.
