LG's WT6001HV sure is a washing machine. It employs Smart Thinq, Smart Grid Ready, Smart Diagnosis and other trademarked technologies beginning with Smart to give you total clothes control from a simple touch-based interface. It's decked out in steel and has LG's largest top-loading capacity, with a glass lid that is apparently slam-proof. LG assures us that the WaveForce technology is simultaneously powerful and gentle, making sure your clothes get clean quickly without any damage. No word on smartphone app control yet, but one thing's for sure — the race for touchscreen washing machine supremacy is most definitely on.
