These fabric strips judge how tough or gentle a washer is on clothes.

The FlexWash did alright, but had 268 attached, frayed threads after running through a cleaning cycle.

Two different digital displays tell you how much cleaning time is left on both the upper and lower washer.

Because the upper washer opens like a top-loader, you can't stack the companion dryer on top.

Instead, these two appliances have to be installed side-by-side.
