Best Kitchen and Bath Industry Show Winners 2016 - Electrolux Washer and Dryer

Best in Show Award

Perfect Steam Washer with LuxCare Wash and SteamBoost Technology by Electrolux – The new Electrolux Perfect Steam™ washing machine received the highest honor of the five KBIS awards given out each year – Best in Show. Standing out as the best in new product innovations. The washer uses a special chamber and pump reserved solely for thoroughly mixing detergent and water before the laundry cycle begins. This complete pre-infusion of soap and washing liquid, as a result unlocks the full dirt-fighting power and stain-lifting potential of its cleaning solution. The LuxCare Wash system controls a combination of washing machine behaviors such as mechanical movement, cycle timing, load sensing, and water temperature to maximize cleaning power. It also efficiently saves water!
