The Whirlpool Smart Laundry integration allows consumers to control the Whirlpool Smart Top Load Pair remotely via the Whirlpool mobile app. With Amazon Alexa, users can instruct washers and dryers to pause and start; tell the dryer to run the Wrinkle Shield option; ask if the washer or dryer is running; and ask for the time remaining on a wash or dry cycle – all with a simple voice command. The Remote Start and Cycle Adjustment allows families to remotely start, adjust, wash or dry cycles away from home. From setting the dryer to actively tumble clothes until you get home, to receiving “Clothes Dry” alert notifications when loads finish, these features help families know exactly when the cycle is complete.
The Smart Top Load Pair works with Amazon Dash Replenishment Service, which when the Whirlpool mobile app is synced with the an Amazon account will allow the washer to estimate when supplies like laundry detergent and fabric softener are running low and can automatically re-order more. And with Nest Thermostat integration, the laundry pair it knows when consumers are away from home. By working together, the dryer can switch to Eco Mode to save energy with a longer, more energy-efficient cycle when the thermostat is set to Away mode.
