Whirlpool Corp. Unveils Connected, Donation-Enabled Washer and Dryer

Whirlpool brand takes "smart appliances" to a whole new level with a newly designed top load pair “the Whirlpool® Smart Top Load Washer and Dryer that uses connected technology to not only better care for clothes, but enable families to help other families, load for load. Showcasing innovation, every new feature of the top-load laundry pair is intentionally built to enhance the consumer's experience and their ability to better care for clothes and those they love. From the intuitive touch display that simply asks "what to wash" and "how to wash," to an enhanced diagnostics tool built to help correct common user errors with easy how-to guides, to 'Works with Nest' and quiet mode “the Whirlpool® Smart Top Load Washer and Dryer uses connected technology to reach a new level of custom care. Remote settings provide peace of mind that laundry will get done even while away from home. The Whirlpool® Smart Top Load Washer and Dryer is the first-ever laundry pair to incorporate a give-back component in the U.S., enabling families to make caring for others as easy as doing a simple load of laundry. The new Connect to care¢ program on the Whirlpool® Mobile app allows users to convert each load of laundry into a donation to Habitat for Humanity, literally transforming an everyday chore into an act of love. Families can designate their desired amount of giving per load. By doing what most families do daily, Whirlpool brand creates a tech-forward approach to helping other families thrive. Debuting in 2015, consumers will have access to a number of custom downloadable cycles for the family's most important items with anticipated cycles such as: high performance athletic wear, comforters, baby clothes, hand-wash fabrics and more. New custom wash cycles, direct from Whirlpool engineers, will be rolled out on the Whirlpool® Mobile app throughout the year. In addition, the laundry pair connects seamlessly with the Nest Learning Thermostat to thoughtfully and intuitively enable users to prevent wrinkles in the dryer when they're away and even activate quiet mode when they're home. The new connected system makes saving energy and resources a top priority. If the Nest Thermostat is set to Away during the drying cycle, the EcoBoost option is activated. The EcoBoost option can take advantage of slightly longer drying times at lower temperatures to help save energy while the family is out. For people who are enrolled in Nest's Rush Hour Rewards program through a participating energy provider, the washer and dryer can automatically delay the start of a cycle during high-demand energy periods, saving the family money. Additionally, Automatic Load Size Sensing technology uses water level sensors to detect the load size and automatically adjusts water usage, which helps to save resources. When a service issue occurs, an enhanced diagnostics tool provides easy how-to guides to help resolve common user errors.
