Whirlpool debuts washer and dryer with Amazon Dash built-in

Home appliance maker Whirlpool has just announced a new smart washer and dryer set that can connect with Amazon's Dash Replenishment Service, allowing automatic orders of detergent and fabric softener to be a painless process. Amazon announced Dash Replenishment Service last October as an extension of its physical, WiFi-connected Dash Buttons, which let customers order a specific product, like dish soap, coffee, and pet food, with a single press.
