Washer Pros and Cons
Cleaning Steam-cleans and sanitizes clothes. Steam is very effective in gently removing tough stains, sanitizing garments, reducing allergens, and getting clothes really clean. Helps soften clothes and prevent wrinkles during high speed spin cycle.
Spin Maximum washer spin rate is 25% higher than average. Higher spin RPM wrings more water out of clothing, shortens dryer time, and saves on overall washer-dryer energy use. Ranks in the top 15% of new clothes washers for BEST moisture removal.
Energy Energy Factor is about average for a new clothes washer and should provide GOOD energy efficiency. Energy Factor is defined as the washer capacity divided by energy consumption; the higher the factor, the less electricity it uses.  
Water The EWFLS70JIW Water Factor is about average for a new washing machine and should provide GOOD water efficiency. Water Factor is defined as water consumption divided by capacity; the lower the factor, the less water it uses.  
Cycles Cycles and options are 290% higher than average. Operating flexibility can be important if you have diverse fabrics and soil conditions within your family. Ranks in the top 1% of new washing machines for BEST program variability and selection.
Price Price per cubic foot is 35% higher than average. Based on the Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), each cubic foot costs about $86 more than the average new washer. Ranks in the lower 5% of new washers for POOR price efficiency.

Electrolux EWFLS70JIW



Performance Ratings
Steam Steam Cleaning - Generates steam that deeply penetrates clothing to remove grime and achieve a cleaner wash. Gentler on fabrics than other stain-removing wash cycles. Produces a softening affect that reduces wrinkles from high spin rates.
Sanitize NSF Sanitize Cycle - Certified by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) P172 Protocol to effectively sanitize clothes. Reduces 99.9% of microorganisms and ensures there is no significant carryover of bacteria into future loads.
Allergen NSF Allergen Certified - The EWFLS70JIW is certified by the NSF to remove 95% of house dust mite allergens and feline dander. Employs the P351 allergen reduction Protocol where the water is heated to at least 131 deg F for at least three minutes.

Heater Internal Water Heater - Includes an internal water heater that can boost water temperature beyond your home's hot water tank. Helps maintain optimum temperatures throughout each cycle. Hot water is the key to really getting your clothes clean.
Water
Level
Automatic Water Level - Designed with sensors that detect the load size and then adjust the water level to achieve the best cleaning and rinsing performance. Convenient feature that eliminates guessing and saves water costs.
