Heating up CES 2022, LG debuts laundry innovations with their Artificial Intelligence Direct Drive that has your LG washer and dryer working for you.

The LG FX washer and dryer utilizes AI DD technology to customize your loads and take the thought out of laundry day. As you load in your clothes, the washer analyzes the laundry load size, fabric type, and level of soiling, then adds the recommended amount of detergent and adjusts the wash settings.

When the wash cycle is done, the LG FX front-load washer delivers the information it gathers and sends it over to the dryer so that the dryer can pre-heat and prepare for the cycle—saving both time and forethought. The AI DD technology in the LG FX dryer will select the right heat and drying movements to get your clothes dried efficiently.

Beyond the stunning AI DD technology, the LG FX offers an array of functions for better living. Consumers can download upgrades onto the machine so you can have the latest technology without purchasing a whole new appliance.

One example is the Relief Care setting, which tosses washed clothes to prevent them from getting musty before you have time to transition them into the dryer.

For families with pets, there’s a software upgrade, too, but you also have to purchase hardware in the form of a special pet filter. This setting works to remove up to 99% of pet-produced allergens from your laundry. To keep your machine ultra-clean, there’s an auto-clean cycle so that you can maintain the freshness of your appliances between loads.

The LG FX series is expected to hit the market in September 2022. The FX Washer and Electric Dryer will be priced at $1,599 each while the FX Gas Dryer will be $1,699.

We’ve previously tested LG washers and dryers in our labs at Reviewed. The LG WM3700HWA is one of our favorite washers. It offers highly customizable settings so you can control the temperature, spin speed, and soil level.

Additionally, it offers a cycle that specializes in removing allergies. Pet dander and dust mites will be blasted from your laundry. Between cycles, you can run the auto-clean cycle that sterilizes the washing machine and prevents smelly loads.

The LG DLE7300WE ranks high in our list of top dryers. It offers exceptional drying performance so that your clothes come out perfectly dry without the need for touch-ups.

It has the unique feature of having two sets of hinges so that you can open the dryer door whichever way is most convenient for you.

The upcoming launch of the LG FX builds off of LG’s existing technology for an exceptional laundry day experience. The new LG FX washer and dryer is a laundry innovation you won’t want to miss.
