Explore our range to help you find the product that best suits your home.
Washing machine dimensions
Whether you want a freestanding washer or one that's integrated (built in), the first step is to make sure it fits. You can start by understanding the space you have:
Width: 48-60 cm - we recommend a front-loading unit
Width: 40-45 cm - consider a top-loading washer
Depth: 38-45 cm - a slim depth front-loading washer fits into this space
Tips: If you have a small laundry area, consider purchasing a 2-in-1 washer dryer combo.
Another way to save space, is by stacking your washing machine and tumble dryer.
Washing machine capacity
When it comes to deciding on the capacity for your washing machine, you should consider a few things:
Household size: large families versus single
Habits: how many times a week do you wash?
Type and size of wash items: For example: bedlinens, duvets, and curtains will require a larger drum for the best results.
All Electrolux washing machines are equipped with SensiCare technology. SensiCare uses weight sensors to adjust water and energy consumption depending on the load size. This saves time and money and ensures your clothes are not overwashed.
Energy efficient washing machine
Every Electrolux washing machine is designed to significantly reduce energy and water usage. Cleaning and caring for clothing without imparing performance. The energy ratings for Electrolux washing machines range from A+++ to A+++ -75%. That means that the highest Electrolux rating performs 75% more efficiently than the A+++ rating requires.
Specific technologies can also contribute to better energy ratings. Those include inverter motors, ECO option technology, or SensiCare technology.
Quiet and quick
There are two additional things to consider when choosing a washing machine:
You can wash your clothes using short programmes in as fast as 20 minutes for a small load (3kg). For bigger loads, choose the UltraWash programme (on selected machines). The UltraWash programme washes clothes in 59 minutes making it perfect for late evening washes or for lightly soiled clothes. The new MixCare programme lasts only 49 minutes.
Smart washing machine
With the My Electrolux Care App, connect your laundry appliances to your phone for a smarter way to care for your wash. Simply open the app and choose the temperature, fabric type and colour. The app will tailor a program in response. For customized laundy care - all from your smartphone.
If you'd like to "match" your washing machine with a tumble dryer, our Electrolux models are made to match. So you can stack them, or install them side-by-side and optimise your laundry space.
Washing machine with steam
Steam is a good choice if you're avoiding winkles and ironing. Electrolux SteamCare® Technology washing machines feature the PlusSteam option that allows you to reduce wrinkles by up to a third by adding steam at the end of the wash cycle. Or you can use a seperate steam cycle as a quick and easy way to refresh rumpled clothes.
Woolmark certification is a stamp of approval from the Woolmark Company. Rest assured that our Electrolux machines are gentle enough for washing wool - including delicates.
Electrolux 800 Series are certified* by Ariel and Lenor. That means they offer optimal cleaning and distribution of detergent and softener on the items you love. Every thread is given just the right treatment. Keeping your clothes feeling like new, for longer.
ColourCare - All your colors, always the brightest
Our ColourCare system purifies water so detergents work at their best, even at low temperatures. A gentle but thorough clean keeps the colours of your garments looking as bright as the day you bought them.
Colours don't fade*
*Test for colour fastness performed on red and black polyester after 50 washing cycles at 30 degrees.
Colours love salt
Without coming into contact with your clothes, the salt activates an ion-exchange filter that softens the water and removes harsh minerals and impurities. So colours will keep their intensity wash after wash and blacks won’t fade to grey.
