4 HOW THE ECOSMART WORKS " l'he Fisher & Paykel Ecosmart's ' 2 in I ' wash system gives you the best of both worlds . Using a combination of front loader and top loader wash systems , the Ecosmart givesexceptional wash results while using up to 50 % less hot water * , and , at the same time , taking better care of your clothes than a conventional top loading washer . m Phase I - Eco Active Wash 1 FRONT LOADER TYPE WASH The Ecosmart fills the bowl , at the selected temperature , with just enough water so that the clothes are 100 % saturated . This small amountof sudsy water is circulated through the clothes , up the specially designed portal and back onto the clothes with a waterfall effec _ The chemical action provided by a small amount of water , combined with detergent , rapidly targets soil andstains at fiber level , boosting soil removaland accelerating the wash process . Phase 2 - TOP LOADER TYPE WASH / m After 4 minutes , your Ecosmart will fill with just / iiij enoughcooler water to suspendthe soil in solution . Agitation will then begin , moving soil awayfrom the clothes . Becauseof its head - start , the wash requires less agitation than a conventional top loader wash . Unique Fisher & Paykel Shower Rinse * CEE , March 2002
