Wash - dry - fold - repeat. It's the never-ending laundry cycle. However, tech enhancements in laundry appliances are making this routine chore easier and faster. From customized settings to connected notifications, today's washers and dryers offer simple innovations that make sure your clothes are fresh, clean and ready when you are.
Wash and go
Wash the small loads that need big attention now! Washers and dryers with a large-load capacity and fast cycles are ideal for families on-the-go. Rising in popularity are super-fast washers and dryers with 15-minute wash and dry cycles, allowing a small load of laundry to be completed in 30 minutes. This is a great option to quickly freshen play clothes or sports uniforms. Additionally, you may want to consider a washing machine that houses a compact washer drawer under the main unit, great for dual-cleaning of small loads, or delicates and fabrics that require an overnight soak.
Steam clean at home
Enjoy the benefits of steam cleaning with washers and dryers that have the technology built-in. By relaxing the fibers in the garments, the hot temperature generated by the steam cycle helps to provide a deeper clean to heavily soiled clothes, sanitize fabrics and remove allergens. The use of steam also helps to reduce wrinkles and minimize the need for ironing.
Stay alerted to the next step in the laundry process thanks to notifications from connected washers and dryers. Some washers are equipped to send digital reminders to start and stop wash cycles based on fabric care needs. If no one is available to unload the dryer, receive a smart phone alert to activate a wrinkle shield function. For the ultimate in connectivity and energy savings, some units offer technology that allow you to pair a connected washer and dryer with a home monitoring device, that way you can automatically activate or delay the start of a cycle based on the device's ability to recognize when you're home or away.
