At CES 2022, LG announced a smarter, more seamless way to get laundry done with its new washer and dryer pair, and the launch of the LG WashTower. The new laundry solutions feature LG’s enhanced Artificial Intelligence Direct Drive (AI DD) technology, proven steam technology and an array of functions that make washing and drying clothes more convenient than ever.
The AI DD technology is implemented in both the washer and the dryer, and works in sync with both machines. In the washer, it is designed to sense load size, fabric type and the level of soiling of a clothing article. It can even use this data to automatically add the right amount of detergent and adjust the wash style for optimized cleaning. The new washer also incorporates LG’s steam technology for better cleaning. Once the washer has done its part, LG’s Smart Pairing feature sends information from the washer to the dryer recommending the optimal drying cycle for the load in question.
In the dryer, this AI tech enables a custom drying cycle that adds precise movement control and automatically se-lects the appropriate settings for optimal fabric care and faster drying times. An infrared sensor accurately measures the temperature of the clothes during the drying cycle and makes adjustments automatically to ensure even drying.
Unlike other washer-dryer combinations, with the Bluetooth paring feature, both appliances can be conveniently controlled from just the washing machine’s control panel. The appliance can even learn the user’s laundry routine and preferences to deliver tailored drying options every time.
For people looking for a more on-stop experience, LG also announced the WashTower, which features an ultra-con-venient and space-saving design, and a special dual heat pump dryer for a robust and reliable cleaning and drying experience. The front-loading washing machine uses AI DD to deliver clean, fresh clothes while the dryer leverages LG DUAL Inverter Heat Pump technology to reduce energy consumption by drying in a low temperature throughout the drying cycle.
With its lower overall height, LG WashTower helps save space through a ductless design that requires less clearance with the back wall. The ductless design also saves owners the inconvenience of having to regularly access and clean out the rear ducts. The WashTower features black tinted-glass doors, decorative chrome elements and Black Steel finish for excellent durability with high resistance to scratching.
The seamless, flat design contributes to a sleek built-in look in the laundry room and delivers a minimalist, ultra-modern aesthetic with an easy-to-access control panel. This modern design, when combined with the futuristic fea-tures, helps it fit in most spaces and decorating styles, while delivering immense value to the day-to-day living expe-rience.
