The Best IFB Washing Machine Glossary Ever!
2D Shower System
This adds dynamic movement to the water through nozzles and circulates the water 360° in the drum. When this happens, the detergent dissolves completely in the water so they penetrate your clothes better. During rinsing, freshwater penetrates deep into the clothes to wash off all traces of detergent. The clothes come out cleaner and fresher.
What this means for you: You get a cleaner wash every time because the water dissolves the detergent 100% for deeper penetration and during rinsing, all the detergent is thoroughly washed off by fresher water.
3D Wash System
This works a great deal like the 2D Shower System, except there are more nozzles so water enters the drum from three sides instead of two. The rest of the functioning is similar.
What this means for you: See 2D Shower System
4D Wash System
A more comprehensive wash system that uses a combination of dynamic water jets and showers from paddles so you can get the best possible wash with the complete soaking of clothes as well as optimal dissolving of detergent.
What this means for you: A system that improves upon the 3D Wash System to give you a cleaner, fresher clothes after every wash.
Air Bubble Wash System
Millions of air bubbles get generated and released into the water. They penetrate deep into the cloth fibres, activate the detergent and help to release the most stubborn dirt molecules. The Air Bubble Wash System infuses freshness into clothes and ensures a perfect wash.
What this means for you: Yet another washing technique employed by IFB, generates air bubbles in the water so that they can go deeper into your clothes and activate the detergent against stubborn dirt molecules.
A built-in aqua filter treats hard water by breaking up the bicarbonates into bicrystals before it is released into the washing machine. These crystals are very minuscule and float with the water instead of forming crusts, so your clothes get only soft water and wash better. Also, scaling on machine components is reduced.
What this means for you: Your clothes are only washed in water that has been softened so they wash better without any hard water staining. Plus, the internal components of the machine are more durable because there is no hard water to form crusts on them.
Auto Imbalance System
When there is an unbalanced load in the washing machine, it redistributes to evenly distribute the load inside the drum. During this process, the washing machine will start and stop during rotation cycles as it balances the load.
