Mabe has been in the Philippines since 2014. Although, honestly, I only heard and read about it recently. I was scouting for a washing machine, and came across this brand.
The reason why I was scouting for a washing machine (after surviving the longest time without it) is that for some weird reason, the laundry shop that we have always trusted keeps on making mistakes. They would send us bags of clothes that are not ours. They would forget to bring receipts (even acknowledgement receipts). We’re not too sure anymore if they send us back all of clothes that are sent to them.
It’s so hard when you don’t have full control of your laundry. We have a dryer at home, but our previous washing machine failed us. I saw that Mabe was actually partners with General Electric Co. So I did a little research, of course, and it turns out that Mabe was actually owned by Mexicans Mabardi and Berrondo. The company has been creating kitchen appliances since 1946!
About my Mabe Washing Machine WMA071XESXS
The Mabe Washing Machine is pretty straightforward and very user friendly. The buttons are not hard to figure out (especially if it’s the user’s first time to use a washing machine…hehe!). I created an IGTV video that you can view here: Mabe Washing Machine
But, let me take you through the buttons / functionalities, as promised.
Power Button – used to switch the machine off and on. If you forget to switch off your machine, it automatically shuts off after 5 minutes.
Start/Pause Button – This is used to start using the machine. You can also pause it anytime during the cycle.
Cycle Button – You can choose from the different programs shown:
- Wash – Just run the washing cycle without the drainage cycle. The detergent in the tub will be recycled.
- Rinse – removes detergent from clothes and rinses with clean water
- Spin – removes water when the wash program ends
- Air Dry – dries the inner and outer tub to avoid mildew
- Normal – Recommended for mixed fabric and general clothing
- Soak – For thick, heavy-soiled laundry
- Delicate – For clothing which require extra care
- Quick wash – Quick wash for normal laundry
Water Temp – You can select if you want Hot, Warm or Cold Temperature.
Delay – It will show the delay time of finishing washing (in hour). The point light flashes to indicate that it’s in the reverse mode.
Water Level – When you use Normal level (which we always do.. hehe), it will select the water level which is usually levels 4, 6 or 8. If you want to change the water level, just press the Start/pause button then press the water level button to select the desired level.
So far, it’s really cheaper if you do your laundry at home. The fact that this has an inverter motor, it works more efficiently. Check this article for more information about inverter washing machines.
If you have tried out Mabe appliances, let me know. Did it work well for you, too?
