You use your smart phone to help you with everything from scheduling to checking email to reading a book. Now there’s a way for your smart phone to help you do your laundry from any location. We know how easy it is to forget about that load of laundry until your child comes looking for his soccer uniform or her favorite pair of jeans. Now you can stay up-to-date about what’s happening in the laundry room without running to check on it or letting it slip into oblivion.
GE’s high-efficiency washer and dryer pair allows consumers to manage laundry tasks, such as checking cycle status or adding time to the dry cycle, from their smartphones. With a Wi-Fi-enabled laundry pair, you have access to SmartDispense™ controls that take the guesswork out of cleaning clothes.
GE’s My Washer and My Dryer app factors in what consumers need most from a connected laundry pair:
Monitor cycle status and time remaining.
There is no need to constantly visit the laundry room waiting for your laundry to finish. The app will allow you to see how much time is left until the cycle completes.
Signal to an open door.
With laundry rooms tucked out of sight, forgetting to switch loads from the washer to the dryer is pretty common. The app can remind you when you have forgotten to move a load from the washer to the dryer.
Download custom specialty cycles from the cloud.
Consumers can preset cycles they use most, such as Active Wear or Quick Wash.
Display levels of SmartDispense™ tanks.
Keep your reservoir full of detergent and fabric softener with the help of the app.
Extend dryer cycle.
Delay the rush to fold clothes and minimize wrinkles setting in. Keep that cycle going from your phone until you can get to it.
In addition to Wi-Fi connectivity, GE outfitted the new laundry pair with more consumer-oriented features.
- GE’s new topload washers boast at least a 40 percent larger capacity than the previous generation topload washers.
- The new washer has a stain removal guide that identifies four of the most common stains and automatically adjusts the wash cycle to remove them. With CleanSpeak™ technology, the dryer sets the controls for the next load automatically based on the wash cycle just completed.
- The time-saver option whittles cycle time by 10 percent.
In addition to convenience, GE owners can keep their appliances’ software up-to-date, similar to updating a smartphone’s operating system. Come into Friedman’s today to see how we can help you work smarter with GE washers and dryers!
