Editors' Choice

It's hard not to be impressed by the Dyson WashG1. Unlike Dyson's usual offerings, the Dyson WashG1 does not suck. Instead, it rolls dirt and debris into a little compartment, while mopping the floor. I've been testing it for a month now, and it's really good at keeping my marble floors and laminate clean. While heavy, it's really quite easy to manoeuvre when the power is on.

The first thing you'll notice about the Dyson WashG1 is the two water tanks. The clean water tank has a 1L capacity, while the dirty water tank is slightly smaller at 0.8L. They sit at the front, and are quite eye catching. As the name suggests, the clean water tank pumps clean water down to the rollers, while the dirty water tank sucks up the dirty water from the rollers.

Quick specs

  • Covers up to 290m² in a single tank, up to 35 min run time
  • Automatically separates debris and liquid waste
  • Dimensions: 300mm (w) x 1,140mm (h) x 225 mm (d), 4.9kg

Speaking of which, the rollers do a great job of mopping up dirt, debris, and messes. The Dyson WashG1 has two counter-rotating rollers at the bottom that can also be removed for cleaning. Dyson designed the water flow to ensure that each roller is fully hydrated. I checked and found this to be true. There are three levels of hydration, though the first level is more than enough for most cleaning jobs. And despite being fully hydrated, the Dyson WashG1 still does a good job of absorbing spills.

I've tested with plaster, hair, and food. The Dyson WashG1 rolled them all up. It also has edge cleaning, and was able to pick up dirt against the walls too. One thing I also liked is that there doesn't seem to be any dirty water or dirt left once I turn off the power. Unlike the Shark HydroVac, which stores the debris in another container, the Dyson WashG1 puts the debris in a small tray in the middle of the rollers. It's somewhat similar to the design of the Dyson V12s Submarine, but at least you're spared the dirty water which can spill out if you're not careful.

I can't decide which one I like better, but I feel having the dirt in another bottle like the HydroVac feels slightly more hygienic. Also, when emptying the WashG1's tray, the debris is still wet, so you can't just shake the debris off into a bin like in Dyson's marketing materials. Instead, I found that rinsing it is the best solution. Once you're done clearing the debris tray, you can engage the self-cleaning function when it's plugged in and charging. You will need to refill the clean water bottle, and empty the dirty water bottle first, as it will use quite a bit of water to clean the rollers.

At S$999, the Dyson WashG1 is probably the most expensive mop you'll ever buy, but it's a really great mop. I don't think you can go wrong with adding yet another Dyson device to your home setup. It's available in Dyson's stores as well as online shopping platforms such as Shopee and Lazada.
