Whirlpool is showing off its transfer-free home laundry system with the new Smart All-in-One Care Washer and Dryer Combo at CES. While not the first of its kind, it offers a suite of interesting smart features with the connected Whirlpool iOS/Android apps and Amazon Dash.
Most of the currently available combo washer/dryers aren’t quite as intelligent as the new Wi-Fi enabled Whirlpool machine. Users can control it via the Whirlpool mobile app and receive customized notifications when a load is finished. Along with a detergent reservoir that will automatically release the correct amount of soap, the All-in-One Care Washer and Dryer is equipped with automatic Amazon Dash replenishment features and a special “Download & Go” list of cycles tailored for specific garments.
It’s a 24-inch unit with a 2.3-cubic-foot capacity which puts it in-line with most condo-sized machines. More details below:
- Transfer-Free and Compact Washing and Drying: Too busy or forget to transfer freshly washed clothes to the dryer? With the combo, the unit begins drying immediately after the wash cycle completes, answering the need for less complex washing routines and providing a compact unit perfect for tight spaces where a separate washer and dryer might not fit.
- Load & GoTM Bulk Dispensing: Automatic dispensing ensures each load gets the right amount of detergent, at the right time, giving clothing precise fabric care. By providing practical and meaningful methods, the washer makes laundry more intuitive for everyone in the family.
- Amazon Dash Replenishment: The combo senses when laundry supplies are low and can automatically order more. When the Whirlpool® mobile app is synced with an Amazon account, the feature estimates the amount of supplies remaining and sends an order to Amazon for more detergent and affresh® washer cleaner.
- Alert Notifications: The unit can be remotely controlled from a mobile device through the Whirlpool® mobile app. Through mobile device notifications, alerts are sent once a load of laundry is complete, so no more guessing and checking in frequently only to find out the cycle is not complete.
- Download & GoTM Cycles: Consumer insights show that most people don’t know the type of laundry cycle best suited for unique loads. With Download & GoTM Cycles, families can download special cycles tailored to fit their specific load and better protect their clothing, improving the care they bring to the whole family.
Exact pricing and release dates are yet to be announced.
