Allergiene™ Cycle

  • The Allergiene™ cycle uses the intense heat of steam to remove over 95% of common household allergens, like dust mites and pet dander.
  • Use the Allergiene™ cycle to wash things that accumulate dust such as pillow covers, and bed sheets–or with items that deserve special care–like baby clothes and undergarments.
*Available on select models

Steam Cleaning

  • Steam technology gently but powerfully penetrates fabrics to virtually eliminate dirt, odors and wrinkles.
  • Do not touch the door during the steam cycles, as it can become very hot.
  • Steam is not visible during steam cycles because the inside temperature of the drum is approximately the same temperature as the steam itself.
  • A visible vapor cannot be seen as it exits the steam nozzle.
  • Do not use steam with delicates such as wool, silk or easily discolored fabrics.
