CES isn’t just about televisions and laptops. Some of the biggest names in the home appliance world have started to show off their latest products at the technology-focused trade show, which means there are dishwashers and fridges to be found on the show floor.

Samsung had some big home appliance debuts at last year’s CES, including the revolutionarily simple ActiveWash.

This year, the Korean conglomerate is introducing an equally-large lineup of products—including a smart fridge, as well as a washing machine that we first saw at IFA 2015 in Berlin.

Keep in mind that all the prices we have listed are estimates—and they’re certain to drop when products hit stores. Without further ado, here’s what to expect from Samsung in 2016.

AddWash puts a tiny door on the front of a front-load washing machine so you can throw a sock or shirt in at the last minute—even when a cycle is running. Samsung introduced this innovation in response to consumer complaints that front-load machines made you wait a long time to pause a cycle in order to open the door.

• On sale in April 2016 along with DV50K7500 dryer

Samsung WW22K6800/DV22K6800 Compact Washer and Vented Dryer

Most 24-inch compact dryers are ventless, using condensation or heat pumps to remove moisture over an extended cycle. Samsung’s new 24-inch dryer is vented like a conventional dryer, so it should take less time to dry clothes.

KEY SPECS:
• Designed for the U.S. market
• Washer has 2.2 cu. ft. capacity
• Will go on sale in March, 2016


Dishwashers
