Inverter motor uses significantly less energy than universal motors used in other washing machines and ensures quiet and efficient operation of the machine. The engine consists of high-quality components without the frictional brushes that usually accelerate the wear of other engines. The brush in conventional motors press onto the rotating motor shaft, resulting in a similar effect as driving the car without having released the handbrake fully. Due to the friction, the engines with the carbon brush need rest at certain intervals, which in practice means longer program. The lack of the carbon brush and moving parts also means longer lifetime - no parts that can broke down. In addition, inverter motors are quieter and more energy efficient than universal motors.
Less noise, less vibration
Inverter motor operates with less vibration and less noise compared to a regular motor, especially during the washing and spinning phase. It will not disturb you and your family. Being short in space you even can consider to place the washing machine in your kitchen.
Fabric protection: clothes feel like new, longer
Low temperature heat pump technology reduces shrinkage and takes gentle care of delicate garments.
Electrolux washers and dryers with inverter motor also control the speed and direction of drum movement. As a result, the programs are adapted to the type of fabric. Thus, washing machines and tumble dryers can handle your entire wardrobe in the most delicate way - from jeans to wool sweaters and down jackets.
Shorter programs, less energy consumption
Inverter motor does not need to “rest” between movements to prevent overheating. So washing time is reduced by about 25% with the same washing performance. The other great advantage of inverter technology is the improved energy efficiency. A normal inverter motor is about 50%, an ÖKO inverter motor is about 75% more efficient than a regular universal motor.
ÖKOInverter motor: our most advanced and energy efficient solution
The ÖKOInverter motor has all the advantages of the normal inverter motor, but offers more energy efficient operation. Its efficiency is around 75% higher compared to a universal motor and even 50% higher than for a normal inverter motor. It is because the rotor is permanently magnetised, so no magnetism needs to be induced in it - and this saves a lot of energy. Search our washing machines with ÖKOInverter motor across our range.
Peace of mind - 10 yrs inverter warranty
Inverter technology in our washing machines, dríers and washer-dríers are also quarantee for a hassle-free usage. We don't ask you just to take our word, we take credit for this: 10-years warranty is granted for the inverter motor of washing machines, dryers and washer-dryers if you register your product.
