LG pairs washers and dishwashers with Amazon Dash ahead of KBIS

first_imgTyler Lizenby/CNET LG has upgraded the smarts of its appliances in time for the Kitchen and Bath Industry Showcase (KBIS) in Las Vegas next week. You can now sync all of LG’s smart washers, dryers and dishwashers from 2018 and 2019 to Amazon Dash. LG announced the upgrade on Thursday, which lets your smart appliance track and reorder detergent or dryer sheets automatically as they run low. To take advantage of the new feature, you’ll need to sync your LG appliance to your Amazon Dash account. Amazon will let you specify your preferences as far as the brand and size of detergent or laundry supply you’d like to order. Your LG appliance tracks your usage through the LG ThinQ app, so it’ll know when you start to run out. The ThinQ app will then tell Amazon Dash to order more and Amazon will deliver the ordered supplies to your door.Again, the upgrade applies to all Wi-Fi-enabled LG dishwashers, washers and dryers from 2018 and 2019. LG isn’t exactly breaking new ground here. Whirlpool and GE appliances have worked with Amazon Dash for years. Still, it’s a handy upgrade if you like Amazon Dash and already own an LG appliance.  Read Google Home Hub review reading • LG pairs washers and dishwashers with Amazon Dash ahead of KBIS TVs Speakers Mobile Accessories Cameras Laptops Automobiles Smart Speakers & Displays CNET Smart Home $999 Tags Tidal 3-month family subscription: $5.99 (save $54) $59 at eBay See It $90 at Daily Steals via Google Express Tags Mentioned Above Apple iPhone XS (64GB, space gray) Rylo 5.8K 360 Video Camera: $250 (save $250) $999 Apple AirPods with Wireless Charging Case: $155 (save $45) Smart Home I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution.

See All GE Amazon LG Whirlpool,I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn that stores are turning Labor Day into an excuse to sell stuff. Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio.
