Haier America has introduced a stackable washer and dryer unit that provides apartment and condo dwellers with many of the same features found in full-size laundry products.
At the standard 24 inches wide by 24 inches deep, the HBF1055TVE washer offers a 1,000 rpm spin speed and can be stacked with the HDY6-1 electric dryer to create one unit that can be stacked in a closet or placed separately side by side.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
LG Electronics and Samsung Electronics ranked highest in customer satisfaction for washers and dryers, respectively, according to a new study by J.D. Power and Associates.
LG copped kudos for clothes washers for the third consecutive year in the firm's 2008 Laundry Appliances Study, while Samsung ranked highest among all clothes dryer manufacturers.
Whirlpool's Maytag division is emphasizing the "commercial-grade elements and technology" found in its residential laundry products as it promotes its Performance, Bravos, Centennial and Epic Z series of washers and dryers.
"To offer the highest quality technology to our residential consumers, we incorporate commercial-grade components. The result is Maytag-brand appliances are built to last," said Ellen Taaffe, Maytag mass brands VP, at a media event here last month.
