The new Auto Dose System Aqualtis washing machines incorporate two storage tanks, one for liquid detergent and one for fabric softener, which automatically dose your wash load for you depending on the instructions you provide. Storing up to 5.5 litres of liquid detergent and 3.5 litres of fabric softener, once filled, you simply then select how dirty your laundry is and the level of freshness required and the machine will do the rest, dispensing the correct dosage of detergent and softener into the wash at the appropriate time. Icons on the machine's display panel will also tell you when the two tanks are nearly empty and with an automatic cleaning programme they will remain in perfect working order. Depending on your individual laundry needs, the storage tanks can provide automatic dosing for up to 40 wash cycles*. *Under normal conditions of usage and washing.
