Fresh Laundry Fresh Features

Here’s some fresh models with fresh features to look for in your next washer and dryer.

Laundry is boring. It’s repetitive, it’s necessary, it doesn’t wait for you to be ready. The laundry pile grows ever larger with each passing day, until finally you relent and cart your laundry to your machine and remind yourself, as you’re cracking open the detergent bottle, that you used to be young and cool.

I’m here to tell you that laundry doesn’t have to be boring. It can be cool, it all depends on your washer and dryer. Here’s some fresh models with fresh features to look for in your next washer and dryer.


LG 14kg Top Load Washing Machine with TurboClean3D WTG1434WHF

This one is a true monolith of the laundry. It’s huge. There’s more to it than that, but I cannot overstate how much laundry you could wash in this goliath of a machine. This is the biggest top loader LG makes, and it’s capable of washing up to 73 items in one load. That’s a whole lot of baby socks.

The freshest moves we’ve ever seen

  • 6 wash motions based on hand washing for a thorough clean while caring for your clothes.
  • Allergy Care cycle reduces dust mites, bacteria and pollen so you can breathe deep.
  • Tub clean cycle - connect to the ThinQ app and it will tell you when to run the Tub Clean. I wish my kids would politely send me notifications like that, so civilised.
  • Stainless steel tub helps control growth of bacteria because debris doesn’t stick to it as easily as other materials, very hygienic and good for reduced odours. Also my magpie brain loves how shiny it is.
  • Pre-Wash - this is especially useful if you use Modern Cloth Nappies (MCNs), helps to get rid of the solids and gives you that extra clean.
  • Soft closing, wide glass lid is the best kind of bougie. You might be washing laundry but you’re still fancy.
  • 4 Star WELS Water Rating
  • 4 Star Energy Rating
  • 2 years parts and labour warranty + 8 years on Inverter Direct-Drive Motor.

Features, capacity and sleek styling, you can have the aesthetic washer and matching dryer (below) of your Instagram dreams.

Why do we love this? Let me count the ways

  • AI Direct Drive technology weighs the load, assesses the fabric softness and selects the optimal wash motions for a superior clean with less wear on your clothes.
  • Allergy Care and Steam give you outstanding washing results with reduced allergens (dust mites, bacteria, pollen).
  • 6 motion direct drive uses a combination of 6 wash motions based on hand washing, for brilliantly clean clothes while caring for the fabric.
  • Pause and Add Items. You can pause it and add an item! Previously only a benefit of the top loader, you can chuck that odd sock into this model up to the spin cycle.
  • ThinQ app for civilised notifications because it’s actually the 21st century
  • TurboClean for a fast clean cycle if needed.
  • It’s more attractive than most people I know.
  • 4.5 Star WELS Water Rating.
  • 4.5 Star Energy Rating.
  • 2 Years Manufacturer Warranty.

Heat Pump dryers have that new technology cool factor, and this one is no exception. When chatting about your laundry at your mother’s group, smugly inform them you have a Heat Pump dryer and no it’s not bad for your clothes and they had to invent extra stars for its energy rating and ew who line dries their clothes anymore?
