The British Dyson became famous thanks to its stick vacuum cleaners. Since the first models, the manufacturer's catalog has been considerably enriched to accommodate hair dryersfans, air purifiers, audio headsets, robot vacuum cleanersand even a car for a time… With the WashG1, Dyson adds yet another string to its bow, but returns to its first love: floor maintenance.

Dyson now does more than vacuum.

Indeed, the newcomer is a floor cleaner that runs on battery – the storage base is also used for recharging -, quite similar to what manufacturers already well established in this sector offer. Roborock, Dreame Or Shark.

Motorized and reverse direction rollers

The form-factor shape of the WashG1 is nothing revolutionary and the manufacturer has abandoned the system of vibrating mops for the technology of rotating rollers, covered with absorbent microfiber, with a density of 64,800 filaments per cm²: we like the numbers at Dyson. The cleaning head accommodates two (individually motorized, for increased maneuverability) which operate in a counter-rotating manner: each turns in the opposite direction to the other. If we refer to the press release, these are humidified uniformly thanks to 26 water distribution points for each of them, which explains the presence of a clean water tank whose volume reaches 1 liter, sufficient to clean an area of ​​approximately 290 m².

Dyson promises that the WashG1 is capable of separating solid and liquid materials thanks to a combination of plates (to evacuate water from the rollers) and nylon brushes which retain the waste, which is then directed and contained in a suitable collector, placed in the cleaning head. For its part, the water passes through a filtration system with a mesh size of 500 microns then is sent to the dirty water tank (0.8 liters) using an extraction pump. Thanks to these technologies and easy-to-empty and clean bins, Dyson promises simplified and less messy maintenance for the user.

The WashG1's control panel is located on the main handle and allows you to activate one of three hydration modes: quick clean, deep clean and advanced clean (for very viscous stains). Each of these modes also has three sensitivity settings and a boost mode. This last function does not make the rollers spin faster, but rather moistens them completely to remove the toughest marks.

Finally a real washing solution?

This isn't really the first time that the British manufacturer has taken the plunge. Last year, Dyson launched the V15s Detect Submarine, a stick vacuum cleaner that acted as a floor scrubber when the associated brush was attached. With this improved version of the V15 Detect, Dyson was taking its first steps on still slippery ground with a unique device which, unfortunately, did not necessarily do justice to the manufacturer's know-how. The Dyson WashG1 could finally be the real washing solution that was missing from Dyson's catalog. Our next tests in the lab should help us see things more clearly.

The Dyson WashG1 will arrive a little late for the big spring cleaning. In fact, it will be available in August 2024 and you will have to pay €699 to get it.
