Built-in Washing Machine Features
The great thing about integrated washing machines is the built-in nature of them. Being installed behind a cupboard door acts as additional soundproofing giving a quiet running washer. Expect all the basic functions as seen on freestanding types. An essential quick wash cycle can do a good job with lightly soiled loads in a speedy 15 minutes on some. Useful features to look for are delay start, automatic load adjustment, LED digital display, overflow flood protection, rinse hold, program sequence and time remaining indicator. A wide door opening makes loading and unloading easy and the time saver function speeds up a wash. There’s a handy full or half load option on some models too.
