Wouldn’t it be great if you could put your laundry in a machine, go to sleep and when you wake up it would be washed and dry? Whirpool is releasing a new combination all-in-one washer/dryer that may change the game.

As great as this new design truly is, Whirlpool has to address problems inherent in combination laundry. We will check out Whirlpool and their new combo.

Whirlpool

Whirpool started in the 1920s as a laundry company. A handshake deal with Sears instantly made Whirlpool and Kenmore the most popular laundry ever sold. In the last 5 years this position has been under attack by more technology forward companies like Samsung and LG. This product is a response to the Korean brands.

This product is new to Whirlpool. We will see if it is worth buying.

Whirlpool All-in-One Washer and Dryer Combination

  • All in one wash and dry
  • 2.3 cubic ft capacity
  • Touchscreen integrated into the door
  • Wi-fi capable, with app to control
  • Compatible with Amazon Alexa
  • Load and go bulk detergent dispensing
  • Download and go cycle
  • Alert notification system

This machine is not the hugest capacity, but it will wash and dry your clothes without having to transfer them from one machine to another. You can control it with an app on your phone or from Amazon Alexa which means you can do laundry from anywhere, but unfortunately, you still have to load the machine.

The bulk dispensing feature is great, so you do not have to add detergent every time you load the unit. The machine will intuitively disperse the correct amount of detergent during every wash cycle. The app allows you to download cycles not seen on the machine to cater towards different washing/drying needs.

The integrated touchscreen gives a sleek look and also takes up less space on top of the machine for easy reachability and use. The alert notification feature will let you know on your phone when the laundry cycle has ended, taking the guess work out of watching a cycle end.

The price should be about $1,500.

Conclusion

I love the idea of this machine. Place the clothes in the machine and it is dried and ready to go at command. You can even ask Alexa to help. If only it folded your clothes and placed them in your drawers.

However, combination units are also the least reliable appliances you can buy. Perhaps because washing and drying have totally different elements that should probably not be in the same machine.

Either way, the service rate has been almost 100% in the first year historically.

You should consider just a separate washer and dryer instead. The price is about the same depending on the model.

It may not answer Alexa, but it will wash and dry your clothes....just not at the same time.

WHY SHOULD YOU TRUST US?

A few review sites have placed this at the bottom of their articles. So here is our take: Our mission is to find reliable products for you to buy. Other review sites may say this as well.

However, we don’t love every product. Quite frankly, it costs us way too much money in repair costs to support less reliable brands.

In fact, we sell fewer brands than most appliance stores. Here is why:

We feel it is our responsibility to repair your appliances after you buy them.

We now have 30 service technicians, each averaging 8-10 calls a day Monday through Friday, plus another 110 on Saturday. That's over 30,000 service calls logged in one year.

The labor rates of fixing an appliance do not come close to the true cost in any product’s warranty period.

That is why no major retailer has a service department. It costs too much labor, money and time.

Our Blog is a bit different than most others you will read. We cannot write glowing reviews of unreliable products.

Hopefully, the bloggers and organizations who write such glowing product reviews for every brand consider servicing these products first. Only then they will understand the consequences of their marketing.
