It’s finally here. A new version of the extremely popular Edgestar older model CWD1510W. The new model is called Edgestar CWD1550W, and to be honest with you I really love the work the manufacturers did on this new version. They clearly care about the satisfaction of their clients and really listen to any hints to make it always better and better.
Here you can see a new modern LED screen, which look really better than the old one. Additionally they listened to the regular user and added the long expected ability to silence the sound of buttons or even the final beep at the end of the cycle.
Among other improvements belong a faster wash cycle with more options ( in total of 13 wash cycles, 5 wash/rinse temperatures, 5 spin speeds, and 3 soil level settings). For the full details regarding this model, please look at the specs below.

|Here you can find and compare user comments and prices from different online stores. Just a small advice – if you find a lot of positive reviews and some negative ones, it usually means that the complaining people don’t use the machine properly, or received some defective piece. I also added a price for a silver style design – EdgeStar CWD1510S.|
