Whirlpool has a new washing machine that will eliminate one step in the usual laundry process. The Whirlpool Smart Front Load Laundry Pair, as it is called, features a Load & Go dispenser that lets you add detergent to the washer and it will auto-distribute soap for up to 40 loads. OK. It will not help you skip every single time. You will have to introduce the detergent at some point, but it will be a step less for most of the time.
Whirlpool Smart Front Load Washer uses a proprietary Precise Dispense technology that will automatically determine the exact amount of detergent to use based on the size of each load. In a way, it takes the guesswork out of how much each load needs every time you do laundry; not just removing the need to manually add the detergent.
In addition to Load & Go dispenser, Whirlpool Smart front Load Laundry Pair also features hands-free voice control technology, allowing you to leverage on Amazon Alexa and in near future, Google Assistant, to control the appliance from anywhere in the house. If you really need to get all touchy, the washer also has an intuitive touch screen too.
Whirlpool Smart Front Load Laundry Pair has up to 35 pre-programmable personalized cycles, keeping them easily accessible on the device. You will be able to customized presets for, say for examples, dealing with dirty soccer uniforms, delicate baby clothing or bulky comforters. It is app-enabled too, offering you complete control of the appliance using a smartphone or tablet.
Within the app, individuals can track how much time is left on a load or remotely begin a cycle if they forget to hit start before heading out the door, ensuring laundry will be washed and ready exactly when they need it. Additional features include:
• Scheduling a wash cycle, which tells the washer through the Whirlpool® app when you’ll be home so it starts and ends the cycle on a person’s schedule
• The Laundry Task Manager, which helps individuals delegate laundry tasks amongst family members, such as transferring a load or hanging laundry once done, directly within the app
• The Stain Guide quickly identifies how to treat stains, such as spaghetti sauce or grass, to lessen the amount of time researching pretreating clothing and doing laundry.
Sounds good, but can we have it iron our clothes too? The Whirlpool Smart Front Load Washer is available, priced at $1,499 and up. The dryer model goes for $1,499 and $1,599 for the electric and gas versions, respectively.
