The washing machine was developed in collaboration with MINIJ (a mini washing machine and refrigerator manufacturer) in China and comes with several smart features. The portable washing machine has a capacity of just 2.8kg and has a drum type design with a child lock function. The smart product also has a level 2 energy efficiency.
Talking about the dimension, the Xiaomi smart washing machine is just 500mm wide and extends 630mm from the ground with a thickness of 415mm. The door of the washing machine is 380mm thick and the entire gadget weighs an appreciable 34kg.
The smart washing machine uses an Amotec Kore DD inverter motor, with Suspa shock absorbers supplied by the same German company that provides the shocks for the Mercedes Benz E-Class.
Apart from washing the clothes, the Xiaomi smart washing machine also provides a high temperature “cooking wash” function which heats up as high as 95 ℃. The temperature has been tested to be capable of killing bacterias such as E. coli, and Staphylococcus aureus, providing up to 99.99% sterilization.
