LG confirms plans for ‘magic’ waterless washing machine

LG has revealed that it is on the verge of revolutionising the home appliances market, with a waterless washing machine reportedly set to be introduced in the near future.

As well as being a leader in home entertainment and mobile sectors, LG is key player on the home appliances from, with the South Korean company tantalisingly teasing its plans to introduced a water-free washing machine to market in the near future.

Speaking with TrustedReviews at the company’s HQ in Seoul, LG executives have suggested that the company has developed new technologies that will enable it to produce a waterless washing machine. A device that we expect would replace water with steam cleaning capabilities could potentially offer heavy savings on water bills and cleaning costs.

Discussing upcoming additions to the company’s leading home appliance lines, Kevin Cha, the Senior Vice President of Home Appliances at LG revealed the waterless washing machine technology, the first time the company has acknowledge such a device.

“We do have a lot of innovative ideas,” Cha said. “Believe it or not there is a washing machine that can run without water.”

When questioned on how exactly such a product would work, Cha, remaining cagey on the topic stated: “It is a corporate secret so it is very difficult to tell you, magic.”

Hinting that any upcoming waterless washing machines could capitalise of steam technologies, Cha references the device in line with the LG Styler, the company’s steam utilising upright cleaning cupboard of sorts.

Spilling further beans, he added that in the near future, the LG Styler “will add the function of ironing.”
