Contrarotator
2 01
TM
The only 2-drum wash action.
Conventional washing machines may seem convenient,
but their poor performance lets you down. So James Dyson
asked his engineers to experiment with every imaginable way
of washing to design a better washing machine.
Along the way, Dyson engineers made a surprising discovery:
washing by hand gave better wash results than single drum
machines. Because the laundry is constantly on the move,
it is manipulated and flexed. This opens the fabric to the
detergent, releasing dirt quickly and effectively.
To replicate the movement of washing by hand, Dyson
engineers designed two aligned drums and engineered them
to rotate in opposite directions at the same time: laundry is
constantly on the move, manipulated and flexed.
TM
Because the Contrarotator releases dirt more effectively,
it can wash laundry cleaner, faster and in larger loads.

to the machine’s voltage.
This information is on the rating plate (see section

• The machine should be plugged into an earthed socket
which can be switched on & off, and that is easily accessible
after installation.
• Do not use an extension cable or plug adapter.
• If the supply cord or plug are damaged disconnect the
machine from the socket outlet immediately. The supply cord
must only be replaced by Dyson or its appointed agents, as
special purpose tools and service techniques are required.
• If the plug supplied needs to be removed it should be cut off
and disposed of safely. Under no circumstances should the
severed plug be inserted into a socket outlet as this will
present an electric shock hazard.
