Helping households in the region make washing clothes a faster and more efficient process, Samsung introduced its new line of laundry solutions, top-billed by the FlexWash, a washer-dryer combination, at the Southeast Asia and Oceania Forum 2017 in Singapore.

Digressing from the usual washer-dryer appliance, Samsung's FlexWash is an integration of two washers and a dryer in one heavy-duty body, cutting down on time spent on washing clothes.

With a total loading capacity of 21kg, the front-loading compartment of the FlexWash can work either as an AddWash washing machine or as a dryer. This compartment, once the wash cycle finishes, can turn into a dryer. Users no longer have to transfer the washed clothes to a separate dryer, allowing them to save time and strength. Meanwhile, FlexWash's top-loading compartment is designed to accommodate smaller clothes that require extra care. Both loaders can work together at the same time or separately.

Also designed to be part of a smart home, the FlexWash is IoT-enabled. It can be controlled using the Samsung Smart Home app, enabling users to start, stop, and monitor washing cycles by using their compatible mobile device.

Similar to Samsung's other washer models, the FlexWash incorporates the company's three core laundry technologies. The first is EcoBubble in which the washer uses air and water to quickly dissolve the detergent, resulting in a powerful bubble action for cleaning. The second is Bubble Soak which immerses clothes in active bubbles for an extra round of cleaning action. The third and last is Vibration Reduction Technology which reduces noise and vibration during high speed operations.

Unfortunately, the FlexWash isn't coming to Singapore. Color us sad.
