Haier introduces a new time-saving laundry experience with its one-of-a-kind Haier Duo washing machine
09-03 2015

Hall 3.1 – Stand 109



Haier, the world’s number one Major Appliances Brand for six consecutive years*, unveils the Haier Duo washing machine, set for star billing at the IFA 2015 trade show in Berlin, Germany. This unique dual-drum washing machine is the first of its kind and offers users a much-improved washing experience, catering in particular for families who regularly have unexpected extra laundry needs. The washing machine has an excellent A+++ -30% energy efficiency rating and can also be easily managed via an award-winning digital user interface, with internet connectivity allowing for remote control on a mobile device. Haier will present Haier Duo at its stand throughout IFA 2015, once again demonstrating its ability and passion in developing innovative smart life solutions.


An extra drum to save extra time


Haier knows from its research that its users wash on average 220 loads of laundry over the course of a year, equivalent to more than 330 hours washing time. This also means that users spend a considerable amount of time waiting for washing cycles to end, often waiting to start a new cycle with different colours or fabrics that cannot be mixed together in a single cycle. Thanks to its innovative dual-drum design, the Haier Duo washing machine allows users to start two different cycles in the upper and lower drum, operating simultaneously or non-simultaneously according to the need of the user. Colours and whites can therefore be washed at the same time, or a selection of different fabrics such as wools and cottons.


The Haier Duo washing machine has two front doors for easy access to both the upper and lower drum. Up to 12kg of laundry can be washed simultaneously (upper drum: 4kg; lower drum: 8kg), with a wide range of programmes available on each drum (upper drum: 12 programmes; lower drum: 18 programmes). Each drum is powered by its own Smart Drive Motor (SD Motor®), a circular beltless motor connected directly to the drum for optimal performance and durability. Haier Duo is built to last and customers will benefit from an exceptional 10-year warranty on each SD Motor®. Only one water mains inlet is required to supply both drums, practical for installation in the desired place in the home. Haier Duo has an energy efficiency rating of A+++ -30%, performing 30% better than the best current energy standards in Europe.


Meanwhile, the new Haier Pillow Drum design also offers greater care for fabrics, as clothes slip along the pillows inside the drum while the machine is operating. Other smart technology features include Smart Dual Spray® for fluff-free washing and stain remover functions, optimising the washing experience. Haier ABT® prevents bacteria from proliferating in the detergent drawer and gasket, with a proven removal rate of over 99.8%**.


An award-winning intuitive digital user interface


The Haier Duo washing machine can be easily managed via its digital user interface, which has achieved international recognition this year, receiving the iF Design Award 2015. Designed according to the product characteristics, the user interface is accessible on a 7-inch TFT touchscreen on the front of the washing machine. The Haier Duo interface simplifies the operation process by respecting user habits, offering easy management and setting of the upper and lower drums, laundry programme customisation, an on-screen usage guide and global information for better laundry care.



Furthermore, and for maximum convenience, the interface can also be controlled remotely on a smartphone or tablet through internet connection. Laundry cycles can hence be managed to suit the user’s lifestyle, rather than the other way round.
