Spencer's Favorite Laundry Features From Whirlpool, GE, LG, and Samsung

by Waverly Wilde

Washers and dryers have changed our lives by making the task of cleaning clothes so much easier. With the addition of numerous features and innovations, laundry machines have evolved to make our weekly chores more convenient, energy-efficient, and quicker than ever before! 

So, if you’re looking for a new laundry pair or a washer or dryer with the right features to fit your lifestyle, we have just the drying and washing machine features list prepared to help you make a decision. Learn all about some of our favorite features that will change your laundry days for the better. 

Traditional Features 

If you’re looking for features that don’t require a smartphone or a Wi-fi connection, take a look at these anything-but-basic controls. 


  • Load & Go XL Dispenser

It may be a small step, but adding the detergent into your washing machine before every load can feel tedious, especially if you have to do it a couple time throughout the day. Plus, how much do you even put in? While the answer may be simple to some, it’s not always clear what the perfect amount of detergent is for your specific load.  

With the help of the Load & Go XL Plus Dispenser, you’ll be able to add your detergent and fabric softener in the dispenser and skip the refills for 40 loads! And when you choose what kind of cycle you need on the control panel, the Whirlpool Load & Go feature knows just how much detergent to use so you don’t even have to think about it. 

  • EcoBoost Option 

On laundry day, it may feel like you’re forced to use the energy of a thousand suns to dry your clothes. Fortunately, if you have a Whirlpool dryer, you won’t be sweating every month when you open the utility bill. The EcoBoost option is all about using less energy while still providing an efficient performance. It uses less heat during extended cycle times to ensure you’re saving on energy and saving on money. 

  • PreSoak Option 

Some clothes could use a little extra love in the cleaning department which is why we tend to soak those dirtier items before washing. Whirlpool makes it easier than ever with a Presoak option which cuts out the trip to the sink and ensures that your washer will do all the soaking before washing it. Just set your washer to soak for however long you need, the washer will add water and start automatically once the soaking is completed. 


  • My Cycle Settings 

Sometimes washers and dryers just don’t have the settings you need for your clothes, so why not make your own? With the My Cycle settings from GE, you’ll get to create personalized settings rather than using the defaults they’ve provided for you. 

  • PreciseFill

Guessing how much water you need for a load of laundry can be difficult to tell for sure, but when you have the PreciseFill feature on your washer, doing laundry is so much easier – and efficient! This control senses the size of the load and adds just the right amount of water for maximum cleaning performance. 

Tech Features 

Whether you always have a smart device on you or you’re just ready for the next innovative and technologically-savvy feature, these controls will not disappoint.


  • TurboWash Tech 

You probably don’t have time to be washing clothes all day which is why having the TurboWash feature equipped to your LG washer makes for a speedy laundry day. With the help of increased water temperatures, the power washing system, and a shorter wash cycle, you’ll be done cleaning your clothes and ready to move on with your day in no time. 

  • ThinQ Tech

Wish you could manage everything from your phone? The LG ThinQ app is just what you need to remotely keep tabs on your laundry machines. From maintenance tips to Proactive Customer Care and notifications, you’ll be able to handle laundry day all from your fingertips. 

  • TrueSteam Tech 

If you hate ironing clothes, the TrueSteam setting may just be your new favorite dryer feature. This technology generates steam which reduces wrinkles and odors. If you have a shirt that could use a little de-wrinkling, throw it in the dryer, press the TrueSteam control, and you’ll be good to go. 


  • SelfClean+ Tech 

Your washer may clean your clothes, but every once in a while it needs a good cleaning itself. With the assistance of the Self Clean+ technology from Samsung, 99 percent of bacteria will be eliminated from your washer. And after about 40 washes, you’ll receive an alert on your phone notifying you that it’s time to wash again. With a simple touch of the button you’ll get a fresher washer. 

  • Vibration Reduction Tech 

When your laundry room is in close vicinity to bedrooms, the office, or the family room, having a loud washer can really put a damper on your quiet time. With Vibration Reduction technology, noises and vibrations from your washer will be reduced  so that your home will be distraction-free when laundry has to be done. 

  • Dry Moisture Sensor 

Are you tired of your dryer either over-drying and damaging your clothes or under-drying and leaving them damp? The Dry Moisture Sensor is an innovative feature that pays attention to your load’s moisture level and optimizes the time and temperature to dry the clothes thoroughly. This way will protect your laundry from heat damage by automatically shutting off the dryer when your clothes are done. 

Laundry is a chore that most people don’t like doing, but having a washer and dryer with helpful features can make all the difference. If you’re interested in exploring our washer and dryers, check out our online catalog or stop by the nearest Spencer’s TV and Appliance to you.
