TCL is continuing its expansion into the major appliances category with the launch of its P Series washing machines available in 7.5kg and 8.5kg capacities for RRP $599 and $699 respectively.

The machines come with a three-year warranty, carry a 4-star energy rating and 4.5-star water rating, and feature a unique Honeycomb Crystal Drum design that is gentle on clothes and delivers a consistently effective wash.

“Innovative shaped ridges create a thin film of water across the drum surface allowing clothing to glide effortlessly without snagging or pilling,” TCL Electronics Australia and New Zealand managing director, Mark Zhang said.

“Customers who purchase TCL’s P Series washing machines can be assured that they’re getting the knowledge of some of the world’s leading technological minds in the fields of consumer electronics.”

There are 16 wash programs to choose from, including an 18-minute quick wash cycle and germ-killing high temperature option, in addition to Add Garment and Delay Start capabilities.

With speeds of up to 1400rpm, the machines deliver an economic wash with a high-speed spin cycle that reduces drying times. The brushless DC motor is quiet, reliable and energy efficient.

The programmable delay start function ensures loads don’t sit in the machine for extended periods and the child safe lock provides added peace of mind.
