When it comes to household tasks, laundry is probably the last thing you want to do. But unless you’re a celebrity with access to an unending closet filled with designer duds, if you don’t do the wash, you don’t have clean clothes to wear. Since laundry is a necessary evil, we’re excited about any device that makes it feel like less of a chore. These new smart washers and dryers do just that. With fun features such as the ability to control your washer from anywhere or even to schedule washes in advance, you may even look forward to laundry day. Check out our list of the best smart washers and dryers available online.
Best Overall: Samsung High-Efficiency Front-Loading Washer
Get your laundry done as quickly as possible with this smart Samsung washer and dryer (sold separately). The washer can handle a full load of laundry in only 36 minutes without sacrificing cleaning power. Forget something? Even once the cycle has started, you can use the convenient AddWash door to toss in forgotten items. With 14 wash cycles, five spin speeds, and five temperature settings, you can create truly custom wash conditions for everything from delicates to comforters. The washer’s diamond drum interior and special sensors keep loads balanced for quieter washing.
When it comes to the dryer, choose from 14 preset drying cycles, ff dryness levels and five temperature settings for the perfect results. A smart sensor automatically stops the dryer when your clothes are actually dry so you don’t waste energy or damage your clothes by drying them longer than you need to. The vent sensor sends you reminders to clean the lint trap, helping to keep the dryer running efficiently and preventing any safety issues. You can even control your washer or dryer from anywhere with Samsung’s Smart Care app that can be used on Android or iOS phones. If there’s ever a problem when you’re away from home, the app can even alert you and take you through any actions needed to solve it
