Family-friendly: the new washer dryer from Amica
Amica, one of Europe's fastest growing freestanding and built-in appliance manufacturers, has launched a new washer dryer. Designed to make life easier for families, Amica's AWDS914DJ washer dryer will wash a hefty 9Kg load and dry 6Kg.
The machine has a top spin speed of 1400 rpm (variable) and a choice of wash temperatures starting at just 20°C, which is perfect for the new low temperature detergents.
The Amica AWDS914DJ provides a choice of 15 programmes including settings for cotton, delicate and synthetic items and a number of thoughtful special features such as an anti-allergic rinse which removes all traces of detergent to protect people with skin problems. Easy iron minimises creasing and there is a pre-wash setting for heavily soiled clothes.
The 29 min. /60 min. Wash & Dry programme, thought to be the shortest on the market, will be appreciated by any Mum or Dad who has faced grubby sports kit or school clothes needed in a hurry. One of the problems of low temperature washing is that the inside of the machine can develop unpleasant odours - making Amica's drum-cleaner setting especially useful. The dryer has a choice of settings including iron dry and cupboard dry.
The machine is eco-friendly too with an A energy rating, an A wash rating and B for spin. Water use to wash a full 9kg load is 112 litres. The blue touch sensor LCD display makes it easy to follow the progress of the wash and the controls are easy to use. A child lock and overflow protection add to its family appeal. Operating noise when washing is 58dB(A) with 77dB(A) in the spin cycle.
All Amica products carry a two year guarantee including in the price. The new AWDS914DJ washer dryer is available from independent electrical retailers nationwide.
