Washers and dryers have advanced very little in the last 70 years. In particular, you still have a Washer and a Dryer. There is no good reason for that — it is an artifact of history. You don’t have a dishwasher and a dishdryer, right? Why are there two machines to do one task? Exactly. It’s time for a change. Marathon Laundry machines are challenging all the assumptions: we’re combining washing and drying into one machine; we’re getting rid of all the dizzying controls you don’t use, and the dumb alert sounds; we are introducing Apple-like simplicity, internet connectivity that actually does something useful, and energy savings through real Smart Grid technology.
