CONSUMER REPORTS PRAISES WHIRLPOOL APPLIANCES

It always feels good when somebody agrees with you. A recent Consumer Reports test proves that we carry the best brands in our Bekins showrooms. Two brands of Whirlpool appliances (Whirlpool and Maytag) earned some of the highest scores in a test of washers and dryers. Even better, they earned those high scores in multiple price ranges.

Consumer Reports calls it “Good Looks for Less Money.” They say both machines are pretty quiet and “this workhorse is among the most energy efficient agitators.” Finally, they noticed the washer extracts more water than most which helps cut down on drying time.

WFW75HEFW & WED75HEFW

Consumer Reports gave this washer high marks for water efficiency, energy efficiency, cleaning and gentleness with the fabric. The report also said this washer was among the most affordable front-loaders they tested.

The dryer earned praise for working quietly. The report says, “Expect the dryer to do its part without making a racket.”

Consumer Reports talked about the Maytag washer’s efficiency with water and energy. The report praised its ability to clean and how gently it treated fabrics. This washer offered one of the fastest wash times of the appliances they tested at that price range.

The report says the dryer “aced it’s job. Neither (the washer nor dryer) makes a racket.”

WANT TO SAVE MONEY AND DETERGENT? GET PUREWASH!

pureWash-Pro-Feature-Image

Want to save money,reduce your carbon footprint and really clean your clothes? As a breakthrough in home laundry, pureWash has the same desires.

If our employees use this product in their own homes, then you know it works. Read just a few pureWash Pro features and you will most likely want to install it in yours too.

  • The power of oxygen eliminates 99.9% of bacteria and mold.
  • That power keeps detergents and fabric softeners out of your water.
  • Buying fewer detergents and fabric softeners saves you money.
  • Save more money when you reduce your use of the water heater. The product only works with the cold water cycle.

THE SCIENCE BEHIND PUREWASH PRO

EASY TO SETUP

The pureWash Pro website estimates you can install their product in fewer than 20 minutes. The video above shows each step in the process. It starts when you mount the product to the wall, then connect it to the nearest power outlet.

Connect the product to the cold water source in your laundry room and the washing machine. Finally, let it know what kind of machine you have by turning the switch in the back to “top load” or “front load.”

Once installed, you will only need to replace the Dessicant Dryer Cartridge when it stops emitting a blue tint during use. How often you ask? The user manual says it depends on humidity and how often you use the machine.

PUREWASH AND BEKINS

We work hard to reduce our carbon footprint. In 2016, we recycled more than 90 percent of all waste at our Coopersville Service Center.

So it makes perfect sense to carry such an eco-friendly product for our selection of washers. Some of our employees have installed the product in their own homes, but it also works with washers not bought at Bekins.
