When it comes to technologies, I found both washer are quite advanced. But, the Triadic Pulsator makes the IFB REWH washer very unique.

  • The Triadic Pulsator gently removes the stubborn dirt. The powerful Swirl jets will dislodge dirt from every corner of the fabric. And, its mechanical centre punch action pushes the dirt out of clothes.
  • The Lint Tower Filter is specific to IFB washing machines only.
  • Smart Inverter Direct Drive: It consists of the inverter motor, which optimizes the energy consumption in accordance with power requirement. Read more in detail about direct drive technology here.
