Description

27" 4.5 cu. ft. Front Load ENERGY STAR Washer
With a 4.5 cubic-foot capacity, this front-load washer can wash up to three baskets worth of laundry in one cycle. If space is at a premium, the stack kit allows the dryer to be installed on top of the washer. Or, 15-inch tall, color-matched pedestals raise the washer and dryer to a more comfortable working height, and the large drawer provides convenient storage options.

Wash cycles include Normal, Powerwash, Cold Wash, Delicates, Clean Washer with affresh, Drain & Spin, Rapid Wash, Bedding, Sanitize, Allergen, and Wrinkle Control. The best cleaning in the industry is driven by the PowerWash system, featuring the extra cleaning action of the PowerWash cycle and an internal heater. Under the Fresh Hold option, an internal heater gives detergent a powerful boost, helping it to work harder against stubborn stains with increased water temperature, contributing to the best cleaning in the industry driven by the PowerWash system. Meeting ENERGY STAR qualifications, this washer exceeds government standards to help conserve natural resources and save money on utility bills.
