Maytag washing machine with Microban® technology.

Maytag, the premium appliance manufacturer renowned for its quality and reliability, introduces a second 9kg freestanding washing machine to its range, the MWA 09148 WH/1, with Microban® technology.

The MWA 09148 WH/1 washing machine combines intelligent, intuitive programming with high quality engineering and the benefit of Microban® technology in the dispenser drawer. This limits bacteria and mould growth by reducing residue build-up in the drawer for effective, long-term cleanliness and added hygiene.

The Maytag washing machine boasts an ‘A++’ energy rating and with advanced sensor technology, IntelliSense®, guarantees savings of up to 50 per cent of energy, water and time1, without compromising on the results. IntelliSense® measures the load exactly and adjusts the amount of water, and therefore energy and time to precisely the right level, minimising consumption.

The wash capacity is a generous 9kg ideal for completing wash day even faster, which also creates time, energy and water savings. In addition the appliance features a Dosing Aid, to help the consumer save money by recommending the correct amount of detergent, which is extremely beneficial as this is the most costly part of the wash. And of course it preserves the environment as wasted detergent isn’t flushed into the water system.

Juliana Sado, Brand Communications Manager, for Maytag, says: “Maytag’s robust and durable MWA 09148WH/1 washing machine is a first class appliance. With hygiene in the home of top importance for many consumers, the addition of Microban® technology promotes cleanliness, reducing mould and bacteria growth.

“With its generous 9kg capacity it is ideal for large households and families looking to spend less time washing, whilst using very economical advanced sensor IntelliSense® technology. This gives the retailer excellent trading up opportunities and offers the consumer a hygienic washing machine with excellent savings on energy and water, to keep rising utility bills under control.”
