This range of machines comes equipped with a new feature called Allergy Protect, a superior wash programme, certified by Allergy UK that is effective in getting rid of seven common allergens and bacteria. Allergy Protect focuses not only on removing visible stains from clothes but also invisible allergens and bacteria allowing for a truly pristine wash. It also consumes less energy and water as it features another ground-breaking innovation - Eco-Balance technology, which optimizes water and electricity consumption depending on the size of the load.

The new range of washing machines is designed with various other distinctive in-built features that together redefine the concept of cleaning. It has 15 unique wash programmes to cater to the diverse laundry needs of the consumers, an anti-crease function to ease ironing and a rapid 15-minute wash programme that offers a short and convenient solution for less soiled clothes. It also packs a powerful wash with 3 levels of stain selection and foam protection system for better detergent removal.

Godrej’s new front load washing machines places convenience at the heart of its human-centric design philosophy, making them easy-to-use whilst also standing out from the competition.

Mr. Sanjeev Jain, National Sales Head - Godrej Appliances, said, “We have always been at the forefront when it comes to providing differentiated solutions in washing machines. We were the first to introduce toughened glass lids, colour options in washing machines, steel drum in semi-automatic washing machines, water and power sensing DAC technology and ultra-sonic wash technology. With our new technologies, Allergy Protect and Eco Balance in our front load washing machines, we have raised the bar on innovation even higher. We are already among the fastest growing brands in the washing machine category and with this new range, we intend to consolidate our position in the category.”

Mr. Rakesh Sial, Product Group Head - Godrej Appliances, said, “Prevalence of bacteria and allergens in clothes can lead to severe skin diseases especially amongst kids as they are more prone to infections. For a thorough wash, we need to focus on the visible as well as the non-visible contaminations on the clothes. Furthermore, water conservation has become a global need. Hence to combat these critical issues while focusing on the health of the consumers, we have enhanced our washing machine range with our foray into the front load fully automatic category. Godrej Eon Front load washing machine promises to make washing clothes a delightful and healthy experience and provide complete convenience to the consumers.”

The new range is available in capacities of 7Kg and 6Kg. It will be priced at between Rs27000-Rs34500.
