A New LG Washer + Dryer Pair That Elevates the Laundry Experience Through Intuitive Design + Functionality
The following post is brought to you by LG Electronics. Our partners are hand-picked by the Design Milk team because they represent the best in design.
Doing laundry is more often than not ranked as one of people’s least favorite household chores (raises hand). It takes a lot of time to complete, needs to be folded relatively quickly to avoid wrinkles, and then you have to put it away – for some reason always the hardest part. Plenty of us are wondering how to improve upon the necessary experience without going all out on a fancy laundry room with lots of room for storage, a built-in laundry tub, and enough spare counter space for a vase of fresh flowers. Allow LG’s Mega Capacity Smart Front Load Washer and Dryer with Built-In Intelligence to introduce you to performance elements that you wouldn’t even think to put on your list of washer and dryer “must-haves.” The design is sleek and attractive, perfect for those of us who value clean lines as much as high-tech functionality.
The Smart Front Load Washer and Dryer are highly focused on design and performance. The duo shows that we don’t have to compromise on aesthetics when it comes to the indispensable items in our home. A new flat panel design features a circle knob that’s easy to use and intuitive to control when navigating the flat LCD screen. The pair’s elegant, streamlined design, which will set a new standard for the overall look of LG laundry appliances going forward, doesn’t compromise depth either – whether the washer and dryer are stacked or side-by-side. The cherry on top is the new black steel finish, a design lover’s wish come true that gives the appliances a modern look as well as resistance to fingerprints and smudges.
Let’s start with the 5.0 cu. ft. Mega Capacity Smart Front Load Washer with TurboWash™ 360° and Built-In Intelligence, it is after all the first step in doing laundry (after gathering, sorting, and hoisting, of course)! Boasting a magnitude of impressive features, the high capacity appliance uses TurboWash™ 360° technology, allowing you to finish larger loads in under 30 minutes.* This alone is impressive, but add in the exceptional cleaning performance thanks to its ColdWash™ technology and things get even better. This washing technology uses cold water and enhanced cleaning motions to penetrate deep into fabrics, giving you cold water savings** with warm water performance. And with the increase in utility bills everywhere, it’s an especially welcomed perk.
The Mega Capacity Smart Front Load Washer also includes built-in sensors that use AI technology to detect fabric texture, soil level, and load size, then automatically select the right wash motions, temperatures and more for advanced fabric care.
Another feature that addresses an issue plenty of us have run across before is the ezDispense™ Automatic Dispenser. This technology takes the guesswork out of laundry day by automatically dispensing high efficiency liquid detergent or fabric softener to your wash cycles after filling the reservoir – no more shorting the load or going overboard.
When it comes to getting the dirty work done in a smart way, you can select a cycle, start or stop the wash, get notifications about when your laundry will be done, and more – all from the comfort of your smartphone with the LG ThinQ® app. This feature improves the experience by making trips the machine fewer and farther between.
Digging in further, the Energy Star® certified washer offers users 25 wash programs, 19 wash options, and five wash and rinse temperatures, spin speeds, and soil levels. It’s almost as if a professional launderer is at your disposal 24/7– instead it’s an advanced washing machine that makes the chore easy and intuitive.
The second half of this dynamic laundry duo is the 7.4 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Smart Front Load Dryer with TurboSteam™ and Built-In Intelligence. A bevy of advanced tech makes this machine intuitive and quiet to use with LoDecibel™ Quiet Operation that reduces noise. This translates to working from home more effectively or keeping the kids’ naps going just a little longer, because we all know time and peace are valuable.
In another high tech turn, the dryer even learns the user’s laundry routine and preferences to tailor drying options using Smart Learner technology. TurboSteam™ Technology generates steam instantly, so reducing wrinkles and odors is a breeze. This feature would be a big help when you forget a load in the dryer for too long and want to rejuvenate it. Meanwhile, the FlowSense™ Duct Clogging and Lint Filter Indicators let you know when your ducts and filter need cleaning to avoid lint buildup restrictions in the household’s ductwork that are reducing exhaust airflow through the dryer. It could literally be a lifesaver by preventing a vent fire in your home.
The Ultra Capacity Smart Front Load Dryer has a wide variety of options to guarantee it runs the best cycle for each load you dry. Choose from 23 programs, five temperature settings, and manual dry times from 10 to 100 minutes in 10 minute increments. The AI Sensor Dry™ detects moisture levels and automatically adjusts drying time for loads of all sizes, so that the dryer doesn’t run any longer than it needs to, saving you more on your energy bill.
LG’s Mega Capacity Smart Front Load Washer and Dryer with TurboWash™ and TurboSteam™ are both Energy Star™ Qualified, an important factor when selecting large appliances and considering the preservation of the environment. Both the washer and dryer go above and beyond with ThinQ Care, a feature that will actually send you notifications about usage, maintenance, and early diagnosis – right to your smartphone. It also helps you understand your appliance needs, avoid any potential problems, and keep your LG appliance running at its best for years on end.
There’s an entire laundry list (pun intended) of features and technology that make this pair a frontrunner in choosing your next washer and dryer. You can read even more about them to be further informed at LG.com.
