We recently reviewed LG's innovative Twin Wash washing machine -- a system that includes a main front-load washer and a second, smaller washer called a Sidekick that's built-in to the pedestal below. Designed for multi-taskers everywhere, this laundry duo lets you wash a bunch of bulky items in the main compartment and smaller, delicate items in the Sidekick unit simultaneously.

And, because they use different water lines, there's no concern about water that's washing your brightly colored clothes transferring to the other machine that's washing your white t-shirts.

LG clearly isn't finished with the Twin Wash lineup, however. It's adding a new Twin-Wash-compatible LG Signature washing machine to the roster today -- one that can not only wash two separate loads at the same time, but the main machine also doubles as a dryer.


That means, you could probably get away with this single unit for all of your washing and drying needs.

Interestingly enough, we're starting to see this as a trend at CES 2016. Just yesterday, a new startup called Marathon introduced a new vented all-in-one washer and dryer combo. We'll get hands-on of LG's new Signature washer-dryer hybrid in short order, along with pricing and availability. Stay tuned.
