Introducing Electrolux Professional Line 5000! 12% faster drying, 25% less energy, 30% water savings. Easiest to clean lint screen. Extended machine life. Call to learn more.

Electrolux smart washers will forever change the way you do laundry. Imagine a washer smart enough to weigh the load size and add precisely the correct amount of water. Imagine a laundry chemical controller smart enough to adjust dosing for accurate water ratio each time.

Electrolux Professional washers do all that & more!

An estimated 60-70% of washers are underloaded, wasting water, chemicals, and energy. That’s why Electrolux developed AWS, a UNIQUE feature that automatically matches water consumption to load size. Combine that with Smart Dosing which adjusts laundry chemicals to water ratio, and you will see immediate savings and superior wash results – every time, automatically.

Experience Electrolux – the #1 selling on-premise laundry brand in the world. Special financing available. Call today to learn more.
