discover a better way to care for clothes

Give our exclusive Smart Motion Technology* a spin
to find the best clean for your clothes with custom wash motions.

Wash Motions

This conventional wash motion moves clothes from the bottom to the top of the drum in a large circular motion for even distribution.
High spin speeds at the beginning of the cycle push water and detergent through clothes to thoroughly saturate with detergent and assist cleaning.
Clothes are lifted to the top of the drum and then sharply fall to the bottom of the drum, helping to enhance cleaning performance.
Clothes are gently moved in a small circle along the drum's bottom, keeping them immersed in water.
Clothes are gently tossed side-to-side for a delicate hand wash effect.
Wash drum alternates direction, causing friction between garments, which creates a scrubbing effect and keeps clothes immersed in water.
