Dyson dabbled in moist ground cleansing with the Dyson Submarine, however the firm has now launched its first devoted moist ground cleaner within the Dyson WashG1. 

Engineered to sort out each moist and dry particles concurrently, the WashG1 makes use of a mixture of hydration, absorption and extraction applied sciences to get that espresso stain plus the biscuit crumbs off your tiles or hardwood flooring, with out you having to hoover after which get in your knees to wash. 

That is every thing you’ll want to know concerning the Dyson WashG1, together with the way it works and due to attempting it out at Dyson’s Malmesbury HQ, what it’s like in motion.

What’s the Dyson WashG1 and the way does it work?

The Dyson WashG1 is the corporate’s first moist ground cleaner, designed for hardwood flooring and tiles. Providing a premium design with a steel wand, show on the prime of the wand and a deal with on the again for manoeuvring, the WashG1 seems to be very very like you’d anticipate a Dyson product to look and never too dissimilar from the Submarine on the base.

On the backside of the WashG1, there are two individually-powered absorbent microfibre filament rollers with a density of 64,800 filaments per cm². They counter-rotate to take away spills, particles, and stains in a single fell swoop. A pulse-modulated hydration pump exactly controls the water supply to the rollers via 26 hydration factors with the intention to ship what Dyson considers to be optimum cleansing efficiency, while dry filth, particles, and hair is enveloped by the filaments.

With the rollers at the back and front of the machine, Dyson has mentioned the WashG1 gives longer dwell time on stains and due to this fact ought to take away them faster than another options. They’re additionally full-width, designed to supply edge-to-edge cleansing.

In between the rollers, there’s a detachable particles tray with a 500-micron mesh that separates soiled water from massive particles, designed to supply hygienic no-touch disposal. Extraction plates take away the soiled water from the rollers, whereas nylon-bristled interior brush bars are accountable for separating out the cheerios into the particles tray.

Additional up the wand, there’s a 1-liter clear water tank, which Dyson claims permits the WashG1 to cowl flooring areas of as much as 290 sq. meters – which to place into some context is about the identical dimension as a tennis court docket. Beneath that water tank is a 0.8-litre soiled water tank that collects the soiled water from the ground by way of an extraction pump – no sucking required. Each tanks will be eliminated simply with massive openings that may be emptied and refilled shortly.

There are three hydration modes – low, medium and excessive – chosen by way of the LCD show on the prime of the wand. They are going to run repeatedly when chosen, with a battery indicator on the display screen exhibiting how lengthy you might have left earlier than it wants a recharge – just like the Dyson Gen5detect. Every mode additionally has three sensitivity settings so you may modify in response to what you see match, and there’s a separate enhance mode too. This mode will purge every curler with the utmost quantity of hydration for the removing of the harder stains.

Last item to say, the Dyson WashG1 has a self-cleaning mode that runs for round 2 minutes, washing the rollers so it’s prepared for the subsequent time you need to clear your flooring.

What’s the Dyson WashG1 like in use?

I had a demo of the Dyson WashG1 throughout a latest go to to the corporate’s Malmesbury headquarters, the place I additionally tried out the CleanTrace software program for the Dyson Gen5detect. When it comes to a premium ground cleansing, the WashG1 is it.

It’s worlds away from the Flash mops some may need on the sub bench, able to be known as upon if you spill your morning espresso, with a a lot much less throwaway look about it.

The very first thing I observed once I tried out the Dyson WashG1 was how light-weight and simple it was to maneuver round. Maintain your foot on the highest of the bottom and pull the wand down and every thing is then in your line of sight, from the LCD show telling you ways a lot battery you might have left, to the water tank and the way shut that’s to requiring a refill. 


Having no suction is a little bit disconcerting at first, particularly for a Dyson product, however you get used to it in a number of seconds. I believe it’s necessary to notice that the Dyson WashG1 isn’t a vacuum cleaner alternative. You’re nonetheless going to want a vacuum cleaner to do the overall cleansing, however for those who spill your breakfast bowl with milk and some cheerios, the WashG1 is the product you’d name upon to type it out, as a result of vacuum cleaners and liquids are very a lot not pals. 

On the subject of ease of use, the Dyson WashG1 is straightforward, refined and as with most Dyson merchandise, there are pink markers serving to you distinguish the place you may press to take away components for cleansing or emptying. On the backside, a pink button exhibits the place you press to take away the rollers, whereas a pink strip signifies the place to drag out the filth tray. For the water tanks, there’s a pink button on the prime, with the water tanks eradicating as one unit initially. 

Each tanks have display screen caps, permitting for simple refilling or simple emptying, and it’s not attainable to place them again into the WashG1 improper so your clear tank gained’t be capable of be the soiled water tank and vice versa.

One button turns the WashG1 on, whereas one other just under the display screen lets you choose between the three hydration modes and their three sensitivity ranges. The enhance mode is indicated by a blue button for if you want that further energy – like dried child meals.

Based mostly on my expertise, the Dyson WashG1 had first rate efficiency. It had no points eradicating spills and particles from the tiled ground as you may see within the video above, and it did so fairly shortly too. I did have a slight concern that it wouldn’t be capable of sort out the grout between tiles, however I consider that was considerably to do with the demo space not being a correctly grouted floor. It’s one thing I’ll take a look at with regards to assessment, nevertheless. 


It should even be fascinating to see how shortly the particles tray fills up on a full clear. This may in fact depend upon what’s in your ground and it’s not going to battle with the odd cheerio right here and there – however drop a complete bowl on the ground and I believe the particles tray will refill fairly shortly, therefore why I believe you continue to want a vacuum cleaner for normal day-to-day cleansing.

On the subject of the perimeters, the WashG1 seems to be like it’ll don’t have any downside getting up in opposition to a kitchen base board, cleansing as near the sting as you’d hope as the bottom is totally flush. You should have much less management within the corners than a standard mop may supply nevertheless, in order that’s one thing to remember.

On the entire, the Dyson WashG1 was easy to make use of, and from my transient expertise efficient at cleansing. I will probably be testing the Dyson WashG1 correctly, however for now, seeing how a lot the soiled water tank stuffed up from just some spills have very a lot made me realised how rather more I must be cleansing my flooring.

When is the Dyson WashG1 accessible and the way a lot does it value?

The Dyson WashG1 moist ground cleaner is ready to be accessible quickly, however Dyson hasn’t introduced a precise date as but. It should value $699.99/£599.99.
