Digital Smarts: Samsung’s WF457 Wi-Fi-enabled washer and dryer perform a multitude of tasks — short of placing, removing and folding your clothes. The front-loading washer features a 4.5-cubic-foot capacity, one of the largest in the industry. The machine comes with a smart-phone application so you can monitor cycles remotely and receive alerts if there are problems. The washer’s advanced rinsing systems means a cycle that’s up to 25 percent shorter compared to conventional washers. The washer and dryer will be available beginning in May.
