Whirlpool Unveiling Appliances Controlled By Smartphone App



Benton Harbor-based Whirlpool is launching a new line of appliances which can be controlled by an iPhone app. The world's largest appliance maker says the new line will put managing things like laundry, dishes and the fridge in the palm of your hand. Global director of sustainability Warwick Stirling demonstrated the new app and appliances at a recent trade show.

The appliances will first be available through Abt Electronics in Chicago, and then rolled out to retailers nationwide over the next several months. The Whirlpool Smart Side-by-Side Refrigerator carries a nearly $2,000 price tag, while the dishwasher will cost nearly $950. Prices for the Whirlpool Smart Front Load Washer and Electric Dryer have not yet been set.
