Maytag® Commercial Laundry Showcases New Stack Washer/Dryer and More at Clean Show 2011

LAS VEGAS (June 6, 2011) — Rounding out its Energy Advantage™ line up, Maytag Commercial Laundry is introducing a newly designed Stack Washer/Dryer to the multi-housing, college and university, guest services markets and on-premises laundry (OPL). The new front-load pair is the complete package – energy efficient, dependable and flexible. The HE washer is the most energy-efficient front-load washer ever,* and can cut utility bills (water, sewer and energy) up to 60 percent** lowering operating costs. The extra-large capacity dryer is capable of handling oversized loads. "Maytag Commercial Laundry now has an energy-efficient solution to meet all commercial laundry needs," said Craig Kirchner, global director of Maytag Commercial Laundry. "With the introduction of the latest stack washer/dryer, we are providing owners and customers with a dependable product that reduces utility expenses and offers exceptional cleaning ability."

With a focus on energy efficiency, the washer is ENERGY STAR® and CEE Tier III qualified. Its high-speed spin extractor removes excess water, providing users with dryer laundry and reducing owners' energy and water bills. The stylishly designed unit offers a full-size, high-efficiency washer and super capacity dryer in the same space typically reserved for a single washer. Equipped with a 180-degree heavy-duty hinge, the new washer and dryer door design allows easier access when loading and unloading laundry. A user-friendly microprocessor control panel, angled for easier reading, operates both the washer and dryer. The single control panel offers one-touch cycle selection and displays operating instructions, as well as remaining cycle time.

Residents do not even need to search for coins to do their laundry. The Laundry Center is equipped with credit and debit processing or residents can go online to add value to their smart cards. Quick and easy instantaneous refunds are available by calling Equipment Marketers' Customer Care Center. While residents are waiting for their laundry, they can relax on the comfortable furniture and watch one of the four 42-inch flat screen televisions in the room or surf the net using the free Wi-fi. The room and equipment chosen were designed to be as aesthetically pleasing as they are functional, with the most energy-efficient, top-of-the-line Maytag Commercial stainless steel equipment, stainless steel hanging fans, granite countertops and numerous folding tables available. For apartment complexes such as Lynnewood Gardens, Equipment Marketers has the ability to design and develop a laundry facility with the latest technology and equipment, while also providing generous commissions and lowering the complex's utility costs with energy-saving equipment.”
