When it comes to chores, laundry takes the cake for being one of the most essential—and with large appliances, it’s one of the hardest ones to squeeze into small spaces. There are many different formats for washing machines and dryers, whether they’re made for top loading, side loading or even in stackable form. GE’s newest appliance manages to squeeze it all down into one machine that can both wash and dry: The GE Profile UltraFast Combo. Carl Prouty from Abt’s video team dissects it below.
Let’s talk about everything Carl went over and take a deeper dive into some of the GE Profile UltraFast Combo’s mighty strengths.
Dual Functionality & Economic Size
The most obvious feature of the GE Profile UltraFast Combo is that it’s both a washer and dryer in one. That makes this the perfect candidate for smaller homes that still need to get a decent amount of laundry done. With a cavernous 4.8 cubic foot capacity that can handle a king-size comforter, this appliance can handle heavy loads (even from families). The footprint remains economical while the height is shorter than a classic stackable unit, too. Plus, its ventless design gives users greater flexibility when it comes to placement. The system’s own airflow dries quickly and delicately. And instead of using the usual 250-volt plug, all this model uses is a 120-volt one. That makes this washer-dryer a flexible model to keep just about anywhere you have a water line and a drain in your home.
Easier Laundry Days: One & Done
What’s arguably one of the best elements of the GE Profile UltraFast Combo? You only have to add your clothes once. Instead of washing in a washing machine before moving things to a dryer, everything stays in the same place. The exciting, flexible control panel makes it easy to take care of all kinds of loads in one place, too, while every element is designed to make laundry day easier.
GE Profile even rethought the detergent dispenser with SmartDispense Technology. The dispenser holds enough detergent for a full 32 loads and will dispense based on the type of load, as well as what’s inside. Just scan your detergent with a little help from the SmartHQ App. That gives the appliance all the information about your favorite detergent. Plus, there’s an easy-to-use lint filter that makes it easy to keep lint and other particles out of your system.
When you’re finished, all you have to do is pull your fabrics out and fold them. It truly is that simple.
Better Than Any Combined Washer/Dryer Before
The GE Profile UltraFast Combo is unlike other combination washer dryers crafted in the past in its intelligence and capacity. Carl mentions that the product is fantastic. In our opinion, it’s so fantastic because of its outrageous capacity and just how smart it is. In addition to Microban antimicrobial features, Oxi-dedicated cycles and de-wrinkling settings, this laundry appliance is made to be customized. Users who love hitting just a single button will appreciate programming My Setting. Here, you can preprogram your favorite setting with details like temperatures and more.
The bottom line? It’s all customizable yet easy to use. This machine makes doing laundry as easy as possible, and is perfect for both families and those who might have a hard time moving clothes from machine to machine, like those with back problems, the elderly or even those with injuries or disabilities (thanks to ADA compliance). Everything is designed perfectly, potentially landing this one a spot in our list of top appliances of next year already.
