Revolutionary combination washer and dryer saves space, time and energy
LOUISVILLE, Ky – Jan. 31, 2023 – GE Profile™ is once again leading the charge in laundry innovation with the GE Profile UltraFast Combo with Ventless Heat Pump Technology. Combining the power of clean and dry for an ultimate one-and-done addition to the brand’s laundry lineup, the new product eliminates the laundry day hassle of waiting around to transfer a load.
The UltraFast Combo combines two jobs into one, allowing owners to do their laundry from start to finish when they are away from home or enjoying other activities. Instead of letting laundry linger between cycles, the washer automatically cycles to dry, taking the load off of the owner and reducing time spent in the laundry room.
Using laundry appliance data from over 13 million cycles, consumers leave clothes in the washing machine at the end of a wash cycle for an average of 130 minutes before transferring them over to the dryer, lengthening the entire laundry day experience . The UltraFast Combo not only eliminates the transfer step, but it saves time with its ability to wash AND dry a large load in about 2 hours.
The machine is also disrupting traditional design limitations with its ventless technology that lets owners do laundry from anywhere with a water hookup, such as a closet or primary bathroom, without a need for exterior venting. The UltraFast Combo is the perfect solution for small spaces or larger homes with bigger laundry needs by doubling time-saving efficiencies with two Combo units.
Best of all, GE Profile UltraFast Combo’s space-saving design and 120v plug requirement offers installation flexibility without sacrificing capacity or speed. With a class-leading 4.8-cu.-ft. capacity, owners can now clean a king-size comforter and a full set of bedding in a single load to clean more with every wash.
“We have completely reimagined the way we approach the chore of laundry by addressing consumer pain points head on to give owners the ultimate one-and-done experience. By eliminating the need to transfer a load, people save time and effort making laundry easier,” said Ken Rudolph, senior director of product management for clothes care at GE Appliances. “GE Profile is pushing the boundaries of innovation and reimagining the possibilities. The UltraFast Combo is smarter cleaning.”
The GE Profile UltraFast Combo also features:
● Greater Energy Savings with ventless heat pump technology and a High-Airflow Ventless Drying System that delivers 50% more energy efficient drying . With the drying system, users can gently dry delicates, activewear and denim with the recirculated high-speed filtered airflow and skip the hang dry.
● Wi-Fi Connected with SmartHQ™ gives the power to select detergents, download specialty cycles and initiate updates automatically through the SmartHQ app. Plus, control and monitor laundry from anywhere, engage easy-to-use, customizable settings, receive remote status notifications and more.
● Adaptive SmartDispense™ Technology saves time and effort with an intelligent dispenser that holds up to 32 loads of detergent and softener and automatically dispenses the right amount based on load size and detergent type.
● UltraFresh System with Microban® Antimicrobial Technology provides antimicrobial protection on the gasket, dispenser, and draining system, to help prevent odors and ensure the Combo stays fresh and clean load after load.
Additionally, the UltraFast Combo is designed at an ergonomically desirable height for retrieving and folding clothes on top. The machine also includes an exclusive, easy-to-reach lint filter system for easily removing lint and micro particles, ensuring this machine operates at the highest levels of efficiency.
Available in Carbon Graphite, the UltraFast Combo with Ventless Heat Pump Technology will be available in June 2023 at resellers nationwide for a suggested retail price of $2,899.
