When you walk inside an appliance store, you will immediately be greeted with different models and styles of washers for you to choose from. Don’t just expect the simple wash-and-dry units because now there are a lot of added features that promise to give you the best washing experience.

And you must admit, its overwhelming number can get a little crazy and confusing, so here’s a simple guide that can help you choose the right washer that will be perfect for you.


Your washer should be fully equipped to help you deeply clean your clothes because a strong detergent alone is not enough to really get those pesky dirt and stains out. It should be designed to give you that extra boost you need when doing the laundry.


It should not be a question of how you will adjust to your new washer but how it will adjust to you. Your chosen washing machine should have programs that will help it fit whatever type of lifestyle you have.


With today’s economy, it’s important to know how well you can save money with every product you will purchase and a washing machine is no exception to that. And aside from saving money, being able to save the environment with the things you own is a nice addition as well. So as much as possible, aim to choose a washer that can do both.

And did you know that the Whirlpool Optima Inverter Front Load Washer can do all of these and more? It is equipped with 6th Sense Inverter Technology and Intelligent Sensors that help save up to 50% on energy, water and time. Through its sensors that detect and monitor the laundry load, you will only need 50 liters per wash load instead of using up to 100 liters of water.

It also lets you spend about only P80 per month on electricity when used thrice a week. This washer definitely won’t let you waste any water or energy to save you from sky-high bills.

The Optima Inverter Front Load Washer is also armed with a pebble-shaped drum that ensures even and thorough cleaning, especially for areas that are tougher to wash like shirt collars and cuff sleeves.

And with its Inverter motor, it is made more durable and does not easily wear out ensuring you that the washer can serve you for a longer period of time.

It is also designed with several different programs that will help you wash your clothes more efficiently. Its 95°C Anti-Bacteria Program particularly assures you that all germs and allergens in your clothes will be killed during the wash cycle. On the other hand, its ECO Quick Wash helps save time and electricity through three timing selections that minimize the energy used while washing.

An added feature to this powerful washer is the ergonomically-friendly panel, a first in the market, which will help you easily operate the washer without having to bend over.

So as you can see no matter what kind of situation you are in, the Optima Inverter Front Load washer can surely adapt to making laundry easier.
