What some people may not know is that the manufacturer also
offers Australian homes a selection of sleek appliances that provide
established brands some serious competition.
Already available on the Aussie market are a range of
eye-catching stainless steel fridge and freezers as well as some first class
wine cabinets. Considering this growing foothold in the refrigeration game, it
might seem a bit surprising that the next appliances to be released locally by
Hisense will be the feature-heavy HWFR9012V 9kg front loader Smart Washing
Machine and the versatile 6.5kg HWFR6510.
But it makes a lot of sense. Most white goods companies are
championing integrated Smart technology, and consumers are beginning to
understand the potential Smart appliances have to change their lives.
Thankfully for households, this means very competitive technologies, and
Hisense is already looking like a big player.

Whilst the machines are packed with smart technology, you
won't actually see one of the most celebrated features of the 9kg HWFR9012V,
you'll hear it. Or then again, you won't. The machine has a digital inverter
motor that changes the motor's rotation in a way that makes it more efficient
whilst producing far less noise. The unique motor uses less energy than those
found in conventional washing machines and allows accurate control of speed and
torque without sacrifice of its efficiency. This means households will save on
power bills, but will also enjoy a quieter home.
Both the 9kg machine and the slimmer 6.5kg washer come with
Hisense's 360* Smart Wash Technology. The suite has five key features including
Smart Wash Time Adjustment where the machine weighs your load and then decides
on an effective washing time, and Smart Spin Imbalance Adjustment where
garments are automatically redistributed inside the drum to ensure smooth and
quiet spin operation. Other features include Smart Water & Power Usage
Adjustment, Smart Detergent Dissolving and Smart Foam Control, which detects
and then reduces excess foam formation.
The HWFR9012V also has customisable Smart Programming for
temperature control, spin speed control and even extra rinse cycles. Each user
can save their preferences using the I.Program function which utilises the
Hisense Smart Memory technology. This technology lets you automatically save
your favourite wash cycle by holding the "I. Program" button for 3 seconds and
can then be recalled for your next wash by pressing the same button once. If
you've got a large family or a diverse wardrobe then this feature will help
streamline your everyday routine.
And that's something that Hisense has really focused on with
the HWFR9012V and HWFR6510; making washing a seamless part of your busy life.
The Time Delay function allows you to load the machine and have it start to
suit your schedule and the 15-Minute Super Quick Wash will clean lightly-soiled
garments to wear the next day. Stop & Reload lets you to add items to washes
Whilst the 9kg machine comes with an
11 year inverter motor warranty, you probably won't need to rely on it as the
HWFR9012V has both a thorough Drum Clean function and I.Check. The
self-diagnostic system will show an error code which corresponds to a full
error solution found in the user manual.
Whilst some people might not have made the switch over to
Smart appliances yet, they'll be nearly unavoidable in the future. And this is
with good reason. Smart Washers are energy efficient, time saving and work for
you. They just make sense.
