Samsung debuts its Wi-Fi-enabled washer and dryer, the latest in smart home technology, that also cuts the wash cycle shorter by 25%.

Samsung revealed its latest washer-dryer concept at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show. The electronics giant has equipped a 5.2 cu. ft. capacity WF457 front-loading washer with a Smart Control system, allowing users to stay connected to the washer without having to manually control it at the machine. Consumers can, via a smart phone application, monitor cycle selections, remaining time and finishing alerts, as well as remotely start or pause the washer from anywhere in the house.

Moreover, the new model boasts a new feature called Water Shot Technology, which delivers a cleansing shot of water with dissolved detergent and then a rinsing shot for dual rinse performance. The result is a cycle time that is up to 25 percent shorter, making it much more environmentally friendly compared with conventional washers. Samsung is setting the bar for Wi-Fi-equipped electronics, rolling out new notebooks, smartphones, tablets, computers and even smart TVs have wireless internet. The WF457 washer and dryer will be available at major retailers in Spring 2012. Meanwhile, check out a demo of the washer in action below.
