Whirlpool adds a smart washer/dryer combo to its repertoire
LAS VEGAS -- Whirlpool was one of the first brands to join the initiative. So, it's not super surprising that the team is rolling out an entirely new washer and dryer pair, dubbed the Smart Top Load Washer and Dryer, with smart home functionality.
According to Whirlpool, you could program your Smart Top Load Dryer to automatically switch to EcoBoost mode -- an option that increases the drying time, saving energy and possibly reducing your monthly bill -- if your Nest Learning Thermostat is set to Away mode.
Through the Whirlpool app, you'll be able to access troubleshooting tutorials and custom downloadable cleaning cycles that take extra care with baby clothes, comforters and other specialty items.
