We are living in an exciting time for appliance technology. Every year, more advancements are being made to improve the function and convenience of the home appliances we use every day. Today, let’s take a closer look at the newest washing machine tech, and the cool new options the latest models feature.
Downloading Wash Cycles
Perhaps the most exciting of these new features is the ability to download different wash cycles depending on your specific needs. No more being limited to the 3 or 4 cycles that come included on older models of washing machines. Now you can go online or use an app on your phone to download a specific cycle and use it right away. LG’s latest models, for example, allow you to download custom cycles similar to “hand wash” or “delicate” for particular fabrics or items. Imagine the convenience of buying a new piece of clothing or linen and knowing you can find the perfect wash cycle to care for it properly, with a few taps on your phone. Amazing!
For those of us that dread laundry day, smart washers can take out a lot of stress. New smart technology enables you to program your washing machine to turn on at a certain time or change the temperature mid-cycle. It can even alert you on your phone when a load is ready to be transferred to the dryer.
Everyone seems to have sensitive skin these days, but new washing machines are trying to combat that with allergy settings. New washing machine models, like the Bosch Series 8, have an “allergy” setting that removes up to 99.9% of allergens in fabrics, like dust and pollen, making it a game-changer for those who are sensitive to those irritants.
