Whirlpool's touchscreen washer holds your laundry detergent, has an app
Here at the Whirlpool Booth at CES 2019 we're taking a look at their new smart front load washer and dryer.
So, some things look the same from washers and dryers of days past from Whirlpool, but some things are different.
One thing that I really like is the integrated touch display on both of the models.
So this is the companion washer Washer and dryer unit.
And for the washer, they've also incorporated the load and go system.
So that basically means that your laundry detergent is already inside in a larger tank so that you don't have to constantly pour detergent in.
And it just automatically dispenses the correct amount for you.
They've also updated the app.
So there's a new, enhanced stain guide, so that if you spill spaghetti sauce on.
On your shirt of mustard, or some other kind of horrible, difficult to remove stain.
This guide is supposed to help you through it.
It also asks you for the actual fabric.
So if you have silk or wool or cotton, what kind of poly blend it is, and it's supposed to give you a customized guide basically to how to treat the stain the most effectively.
So these models are pretty pricey.
They're going to cost around $1500 each and they're due out later this year.
But one thing I'm also really excited about is the Alexa integration.
So it's already worked with Alexa in the past, but you had to use the indication term, Ask Whirlpool to do something.
Now you can just say, Hey, Alexa, what's the status of my washer?
