A special feature of this machine is the 6 motion technology, this means there are 6 different motions the drum will take as follows; tumble, whereby clothes are lifted around the machine in a circular motion; filtration ensuring the clothes are thoroughly and evenly soaked for a better clean; scrubbing, dissolving ad frothing up the soap powder to facilitate a better clean; rolling motion whereby the clothes are completely submerged and washed very gently in a rolling motion, (this cycle is used in the silent option programme); and finally stepping, whereby clothes are lifted to the top of the drum and dropped, this prevents creasing
