Beko DailyQuick

Beko had their DailyQuick cycle for years, even on there once existent 9kg model. And that cycle at default (30C, 800rpm oder 1000rpm) always took less the half an hour. If you bumped the temperature to something higher (up to 90C), the cycle extendended. 40C was slight over 30min, 60C just under 50min and the boilwash just under 90min, if I remeber correctly. You could add an extra rinse.

Had the chance to use that cycle once. It could in theory hold a load up to the max capacity, but I only washed a pair of yeans, a few socks, a pair of sweatpants and a light cotton jacket. 40C with extra rinse took (with balancing) just under 50 min.
The wash was something like 15-20min, rinses were short a good levels. Can't remeber if it spun.
But everything was fresh, well spun and well rinsed.

That cycle is good for rather lightly soiled items light guest towels or bedding where you don't need much but wish for a certain temp to be reached as AFAIK it ensures that it at least hits temp once.

There were Arcrelik machines with such high capacitys before as well, and there were machines with auto dosing, though they are verry rare and not that cheap compared to other machines with Autodose (eg iDos machines).

That freshness feature however sounds new. Probably a fan typ thing like Whirlpools FanFresh.

Overall, while not the best, I think Arcrelik is a verry good low budget option (for 300-400€ you can get decent machines).
BSH machine for the same price don't last much longer and are relativley badly speced.
Lower end I'd go with Gorenje (a verry decent Gorenje machine my brother bought through my recomedation is only 240€ with verry good cycle design and features), for 500 bucks I'd rather go with a BSH machine on sale. Or an AEG/Electrolux.

I am though somewhat sad that Acrelik dosen't offer more washer dryers and especially H-axis toploaders.

A 2016 press release states that Air Therapy blows warm air into the drum to refresh up to 1 kg of clothes. *meh* Pretty similar to Samsung's short-lived AirWash cycle.

Seems like there's an 2017 update

"The AirTherapy® technology now allows for a Refreshment Program where one kilogram of daily used clothes can be refreshed and ready to wear in 30 minutes. This is thanks to an innovative system within the machine which includes an air heater and an additional fan which circulates warm air into clothes. Customers frequently require smaller loads within a limited amount of time, which can be difficult to achieve with most washing machines – but not anymore. The Clean & Wear® Program supported by AirTherapy® Technology allows consumers to quickly and effectively clean to wear one kilogram load within 120 minutes.

At the final stage of the cycle, the patented AntiCrease+® Function supported by AirTherapy® Technology will help to keep laundry at its freshest, avoiding humidity build-up and preventing creasing – even if the laundry is not immediately unloaded and folded.

If you prefer to clean inside of your washing machine, Drum Clean+ by AirTherapy® can be used to ensure that the machine stays as fresh and clean-smelling as the first day you brought it home. By running Drum Clean+, the programme will circulate warm air throughout the machine, effectively preventing bad odours caused by any remaining humidity, which can be a common occurrence."
