The Whirlpool 6th Sense Live laundry pair has been awarded a Product Design Award, in the Leading Design Garment Care category, at the Get Connected Awards 2017. The Get Connected Product Design Awards recognise genuinely innovative products with advanced technology. The Whirlpool Supreme Care washing machine (FSCR 12441) and matching tumble dryer (HSCX 10441) can be controlled from anywhere, by the 6th Sense Live app on a smartphone or tablet. With the app, available on both iOS and Android, dialogue between the washing machine and tumble dryer takes place. The app communicates the washer’s current load type and spin speed, and the dryer will automatically synchronise with the washing machine, to set the correct drying cycle, simplifying the laundering process. “Whirlpool – said Catherine Balderson, Brand Manager at Whirlpool – invests heavily in technology that is intuitive, makes life easier, and saves resources. The 6th Sense Live laundry pair was the first of our connected range to hit the market and we are proud and ecstatic to be honoured and recognised in such a competitive awards category. Connected appliances, such as the Whirlpool 6th Sense Live laundry pair, offer innovation that brings genuine lifestyle benefits and crucially takes resource saving to the next level”.
