Whirlpool Australia recognises that water saving is a now a lifelong commitment for Australian households. In response to consumer and trade demands for much greater water efficiency, Whirlpool has launched two new innovative and best in class water efficient front load washing machines, the WFS1273BW and WFS1071BW.
Whirlpool’s new front loaders now save over 3,000 litres a year more than their predecessors, making these Whirlpool products the most affordable 4.5 star WELS rated machines on the market*.

In light of the recent rebate changes brought by the NSW and WA governments, which made the $150 household appliance rebate out-of-reach for the average Aussie family, Whirlpool set about designing a 4.5 star washer that would not break the budget.

Featuring 6th Sense Technology, Whirlpool’s environmentally friendly washing machines are able to precisely adjust and control water temperature, decrease energy consumption and water usage based on the size of the load.

The water saving machines include an Eco option, 30 minute quick wash, an extra high spin speed of 1,200rpm, a 7.5 kilogram capacity, Hand Wash, Wool Wash, an easy iron feature, stainless steel drum, intensive rinse and a user friendly LED display screen displaying time remaining and start delay.

Price and availability

The new Whirlpool 7.5 kilogram Front Loading Washing Machines (WFS1071BW, WFS1273BW) are available from August 2008 and retail for $799 and $899 respectively.
