Whirlpool Smart Appliances Make Managing Housework Easier

Every year I make the New Year’s resolution to get my housework in order. I tell myself: I won’t forget the clothes in the washer; I’ll fold the clothes promptly; I’ll unload the dishwasher; I’ll remember to change the water filter. It usually starts out well, but two weeks into the year I’m back to my old, disorganized ways. If you’re like me and need help being more productive at your housework this year, Whirlpool has the product line to help you actually achieve your goal.

The Whirlpool 6th Sense Live™ product line could be your smartest 2015 purchase

The Whirlpool 6th Sense Live product line was released back in 2013, and has since grown in popularity among the moderately priced appliance market (appliances ranging from $1,000 to $2,500). Here’s how it works: The entire line of 6th Sense Live products connect to your Android or iOS phone (or tablet) via the Smart Appliance App. The multitasking app is designed to help you stay on top of your household chores, as well as manage your yearly preventative maintenance. Simply connect your washer, dryer, dishwasher, and refrigerator to the Smart Appliance App and receive push-notifications to help you manage your daily chores.

Whirlpool 6th Sense Live™ Washer and Dryer

The 6th Sense Live™ washer and dryer are my favorites of this product line. Forget to press start on the dryer before you walked out to work? Easy fix! Use the remote start button to start (or pause) the machine while you’re away. Did you start a load of wash, but forget to transfer it over the dryer? Not a problem! Activate the washer’s FanFresh feature and your washer will intermittently tumble clothes in the drum for up to 16 hours. No more rewashing stinky, moldy clothes that sat too long!

My other favorite features include a Smart Detergent setting that tells you when it’s time to replace your laundry detergent, an Air Flow Status alert that notifies you of any air flow restrictions, and an Energy Grid connection that helps you to optimize energy use.

Whirlpool 6th Sense Live™ Dishwasher

If you’re anything like me, you frequently forget that you have a load of dishes in the dishwasher. In my house, this means that the dishes will sit for a day or two unattended, and then no one will remember if they’re clean or not. To help you manage your housework better, Whirlpool’s 6th Sense Live™ Dishwasher sends your phone a “Dishes Clean Nudge” as a gentle reminder that it’s time to put the dishes away. It also comes with a Remote Control Lock feature and an Affresh Cycle Assistant, which lets you know when your supply of dishwasher detergent is running low.

Whirlpool 6th Sense Live™ Refrigerator

When it comes to running your household, Whirlpool’s 6th Sense Live™ refrigerator is going to make a huge difference. The Remote Temperature Set Assistant allows you to control the refrigerator when you’re away from home (even on vacation). The Temperature Assistant allows you to monitor your refrigerator’s temperature remotely and make adjustments to the temperature settings right from your phone. The refrigerator also offers several Smart Nudge alerts to let you know when the door has been left open, the filter needs changed, or the power goes out. Like the other 6th Sense products, the refrigerator also connects to the smart grid.
