MISSISSAUGA, ON, Jan. 10, 2018 /CNW/ - Samsung Electronics Canada today announced that it is bringing its next generation laundry innovation to Canada: the WW6850N washing machine featuring revolutionary QuickDrive™ technology. Responding to consumer demand for speed and cleaning performance, the 24" compact washer cleans laundry up to 35% faster compared to current Samsung models1. The WW6850N is on display at International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) at the Samsung booth (#15006) on Level 1 of the Central Hall in the Las Vegas Convention Center from January 9-12, 2018.
With more young Canadians buying homes, this new cohort of digitally savvy homebuyers is demanding home appliances that incorporate meaningful, personalized technology to enhance their lives. The WW6850N with QuickDrive™ technology is the latest in a line of differentiated laundry innovations, including the activewash™ Top Load Washer, AddWash™ Front Load Washer and FlexWash + FlexDry laundry pair.
"When you've got a pile of laundry to do, you just want to get it done as quickly and efficiently as possible," said Warner Doell, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Digital Appliances, Samsung Canada. "The intuitive innovation behind the WW6850N washing machine with QuickDrive™ technology will provide Canadians with options for tackling their laundry needs to free up time for what really matters in their lives."
The WW6850N washer's innovative performance starts with QuickDrive™ technology, which features a large main drum and a back plate that move independently. This creates a dynamic action that moves clothes in four directions – up and down, and back and forth – to quickly, gently and thoroughly remove dirt for a more powerful and intense wash cycle that takes up to 35% less time than other comparable Samsung machines1. Additionally, at 24" wide and stackable, the WW6850N washer and its companion dryer are an ideal size for smaller spaces like apartments, first floor laundry rooms or closets just off the master suite, to conveniently tackle loads quickly and effectively.
The WW6850N is IoT-ready and compatible with Samsung's SmartThings ecosystem. Its Q-rator laundry assistant has smart capabilities that simplify the washing cycle with intuitive features:
- Laundry Recipe provides automatic recommendations for optimal wash cycles based on the color, fabric type, and degree of soiling inputted by the user.
- Laundry Planner allows consumers to manage the time that a wash cycle will finish, adjusting cycle settings accordingly.
- HomeCare Wizard monitors the washer to keep it operating at optimal performance and provides easy-to-follow maintenance instructions.
- A 2018 CES Innovations Award honoree, the WW6850N washing machine with QuickDrive™ technology will be available in Canada this spring.
