I am a seasoned home automation enthusiast but I can't get my head around things like smartphone controlled washing machines - unless it knows how to empty itself, put more powder in, shut its own door, all you are getting is the ability to start it remotely (pointless, I had to stand next to it to load it!) or an alert when it's finished. Well gee, walk to the kitchen!

Same with the Alexa microwave - if I have to put the food in and take it out, chances I am going to be stood next to the blinking thing!

I've got this washer and it's really economical, washes great , and the smartthinq app is a bonus , we just use it mainly to either check how long is on the cycle or a remote/delayed start and finish so it's done and ready for when we come home from work .

Every washing machine I've had in the last fifteen years has had a digital display telling me how long the cycle is - and a delayed start timer. I can do the simple time calculations in my head, much quicker than I can get a smartphone out and interface with an app!!

Anyway, the Fire Brigade don't recommend you run Washing Machines, Dishwashers or Tumble Dryers at night or when you are not at home, so in practice most people are going to be sat 30ft max from their appliance anyway.

I'm all for automation, but isn't this really just a gimmick?

Yes, it is a gimmick, is not necessary, & I would miss the feature if I bought a new washing machine, but I have similar control over my Samsung machine, where I sit close enough to hear when a cycle is complete.

I like the fact my mobile telephone (on the desk that I am sat at) relays that the washing cycle has finished because sometimes I may miss the audible tones from the machine (even though it is in the adjoining room).

I have run washing machines, dishwashers, & tumble drivers all hours of the day when my home has not been occupied (or when the occupants are asleep) for over 20 years, & never once worried any of the appliances would spontaneously combust.

Mind you, none of them have been manufactured by Whirlpool.

PS. For clarity: The appliances have not been running continuously for over 20 years; that would be impressive!

I have the 9kg version and the app just shows how many washes left before a clean out.

How are people getting remote starts and showing how long until the washing is finished on thier apps?

Maybe they should tell the manufacturers then as my new Bosch has a ‘night wash’ and a delay function so you can set it to be finished when you arrive home and not have your clean washing sat there all day still wet.

Not sure how much difference that makes Vs an extractor in terms of risk. In the grand scheme of life, the chances are probably low, but given the consequences are so bad, and the mitigation of risk pretty straight forward, it's a no-brainer for me.

A normal dryer has an exposed wire heater element, if dry fluff manages to make its way onto the exposed element then there’s a fire. A heat pump dryer doesn’t have an element heater, it’s more like a fridge in reverse with a compressor, gas and a heat exchanger.

The idea is that now the automation doesn't really make sense because it's not really intelligent, you end up having to link everything together via IFTTT which is tedious.

However, in the future things will be much easier.

So for instance I have solar panels which I want to use as much as possible during peak solar hours. During the winter I only want the heating on when I'm at home or on my way back.

So for me

I have two calendars, work (cycle) and family (will need car).

I have a Raspberry Pi which reads both calendars and the weather from Darksky and works out which smart plugs to prioritise - car, then washing machine, then dishwasher - to ensure I use as much of my solar power as possible but also have the car fully charged when I need it.

The tado geolocation is used not only for the heating but also to put on the dishwasher/washing machine if I am on my way home because I will probably want to use electric to cook my supper and have clean dishes and clothes.

Now, all this has been very tedious to setup because the car, dishwasher and washing machine are dumb and I am doing the intelligence linking the two. In future internet linked machines can do that for you You can set your washing machine to run overnight or your electric car to charge before leaving for work at 8am and tell it to use the cheapest electric. Smart meter tells you when there is excess power in the grid and gives you a much lower price per kwh.

The ultimate future is that you actually get paid to fuel your car by telling the grid "I don't need to go out until tomorrow morning, buy electricity whilst it is cheap and sell it from your battery when it is expensive". There is a massive difference in energy prices during high demand and low demand, when prices can actually go negative, e.g. you are PAID to consume electricity,

tl;dr smart appliances at the moment are like a screwdriver without a screw and asking why can't this screwdriver do anything. But long term they will be important because renewable energy doesn't have consistent output like a gas power plant. And so being able to use energy during renewable peaks, and reward householders by giving them cheap energy in return, is really important. At the moment most of us (except large businesses) pay the same rate per kwh no matter when we use it, even if that means our bills being loaded because, inadvertently, by putting the dishwasher on at 5pm we are using really expensive diesel generators to provide the power.

There's a bit of conflicting advise now on the 3 separate links on this thread with different counties. I think its mostly a knee jerk reaction to tumble dryer fires where fluff has managed to get onto the exposed wire elements.

I'll continue to use my Bosch washing machine overnight and when out as it has a 'night mode' on it.

Because the night mode invokes an extra special level of equipment safety, gotcha.
