Samsung begins sales of Wi-Fi-enabled washer

Mar 10,2017
Samsung Electronics said Thursday it has started selling a new dual-load washing machine that offers consumers “more choices to do laundry the way they want.”

The “FlexWash” washer, which is Wi-Fi-enabled and can be controlled by a smartphone app, was unveiled earlier this year at the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

The washer’s front-loader with 5-cubic-feet capacity can handle normal or bulky loads, while its 1-cubic-foot top-loader is built to wash smaller loads separately from the main load, Samsung said in a statement.

The company said the washer provides “the most advanced, flexible laundry solution to meet the needs of busy modern families.”
