LG 6001HV Smart ThinQ Washing Machine First Impressions ReviewWasher $1,599.99
LG's upscale top loader gets the smart appliance treatment with a touch screen and smartphone app.
As part of their push to display a suite of "smart" appliances at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show, LG brought the WT6001HV, on sale in 2012. It's a WiFi-enabled top-loading washer with an LCD touchscreen that can be controlled and monitored through a smartphone app. While users who have trouble setting up a router might want to stick with simpler devices, the advanced washer has a more elegant interface than its many-buttoned, disconnected counterpart.
