You need to use only detergent (powder or liquid) that are low suds specified for front load washers.
Any brand will do as you will know the washing powder is low suds which is normally specified on the packaging or represented with a picture of a front load washing machine in front of the packet or box.
Most of the clothing materials have a washing label which will inform you how to wash (cold or hot wash and the temperature to select if you are using hot wash). The label is inside the clothing.
Especially, washing with lower temperatures has the added benefit of keeping vibrant colours brighter for longer. So, Electrolux washing machines give you exceptional deep cleaning results at temperatures as low as 30 degrees. This is because our patented UltraMix™ technology pre-mixes the water and detergent before it enters the drum, so detergent is fully dissolved and activated before it meets your clothes.

The front load washer uses a different washing system unlike top load washer which uses a lot of water to wash your clothing. All Electrolux front load washers have Automatic Level Control (ALC) which automatically adjust the water usage according to the wash load thereby giving you high water efficiency in every washing cycle. Our front load washers meet the requirements required under the Water Efficiency Labelling Scheme (WELS) practiced in Singapore and our washers are given the maximum 3 ticks under (WELS) which means “Excellence” in water consumption.
So they use the perfect amount of water for each cycle and your clothes are still getting the deep clean they deserve.
You need to separate the colour clothing from the white clothing because if they are washed together the white clothing will become off-white due to the colours released by the colour clothing during the washing.
We have dedicated washing programs for Cottons/ Synthetics/ Delicates/ Hand Wash/ Woolens/ Silk/ Bedding (option depends on the models selection) in the washing program knob. All the programs will have their own cycle of washing e.g. load size/ temperature/ spin speed and duration of washing for optimized washing performance. Therefore, if you are washing bath towels which are thick in texture and silk which is delicate and thin in texture, you cannot mix them to wash as the temperature/ spin speed/ duration of washing are different for best washing performance and to ensure optimal care for your precious laundry. The silk material which requires delicate washing may risk being damaged if you wash under cotton program.
All of our machines have programs specifically designed for a gentle care. For some of your precious pieces use the Delicate program. For even more delicate items like wool, Electrolux machines have a program designed for cleaning extremely delicate garments. They are so well designed and so gentle on your clothes, that they can be better for delicate fabrics than traditional handwashing. Which is why Woolmark Apparel Care, the industry expert in independent research and accreditation of woollen apparel care products since 1968, have certified our washing machines as safe to use on woollen delicates. Their guarantee ensures you can have confidence to machine washing items you only wash by hand.
Top-loading machines have a lid on top and laundry is added from above. Front loaders have a door and laundry is placed inside the drum from the front. Front-loaders are increasing in popularity because not only do they save space, they are also more economical as they save on water, electricity and detergent.
Please find more details in our comprehensive comparison between front-load washers and top-load washers.
What makes our front-load machines more durable and efficient is the motor.
Our EcoInverter motor is not only energy efficient and quiet, it’s also so durable that it comes with a 10-year warranty.
Specially designed drums also improve water flow during the cycle, which makes for even more efficient washing and shorter wash times.
Front-load washers may seem at first more expensive, but their durability and energy efficiency save electricity and water bills in the long run.
