The unique design of the UltraFast Combo allows for a full-size load of laundry to be completed in under two hours, making it an incredibly efficient and convenient solution for anyone who is looking for quick and easy laundry care.

What sets the UltraFast Combo apart from other washing and drying solutions is its ventless heat pump technology.

This innovative technology uses a condenser to warm the air, which is then used to dry clothes. This results in a more efficient and faster drying process, as the moisture is separated from the air and drained through the washer.

This saves not only time but also energy, as the unit is 50% more efficient than a traditional dryer.

With its compact design and convenient features, the GE Profile UltraFast Combo is the perfect solution for anyone who wants to simplify their laundry routine. And, with its launch set for this summer, you won't have to wait long to experience the benefits of this innovative product.

The washer has a 4.5 cu. ft. capacity and the dryer has a 7.2 cu. ft. capacity, making it possible to wash and dry large loads in one machine.

One of the key features of the LG WashTower is its 4-tray dispense system. With this system, you can dispense detergent and softener simultaneously or two different detergents, depending on your needs.

The machine also has a large capacity for detergent, so you won't have to refill it as often.

LG's new machines also feature AI (Artificial Intelligence) DD (Direct Drive), meaning it has load sensing, fabric sensing, and soil sensing capabilities.

This advanced technology uses a direct drive motor to sense the type of clothing you're washing and how dirty it is and then determines the right amount of detergent to use.

This helps to optimize the wash cycle for each load, saving time, water, and energy.

In addition to the LG WashTower, LG showcased their Styler, Shoe Care, and other models with the AI DD system, including the 6700-line front load set at KBIS 2023.
