Select smart appliances from LG Electronics are now integrated with Amazon’s smart reorder service, which monitors usage patterns and automatically requisitions laundry detergent, water filters and other related supplies based on users’ preferences.
Compatible appliances include LG’s lineup of 2020 and 2021 Wi-Fi-enabled dishwashers, washing machines, clothes dryers and refrigerators. Owners simply link their Amazon account in the LG ThinQ app, and their appliance signals to Amazon when supplies are running low, so users never run short of kitchen or laundry room essentials.
Once an LG smart appliance is connected to the ThinQ app, users automatically receive notifications when refrigerator water filters need replacement based on average usage period, helping owners better maintain their appliances seamlessly. In addition to Amazon smart reorders, ThinQ users can also access the app’s recently launched accessory store to shop for appliance replacement filters and parts including oven racks, refrigerator bins and components.
“During the past year, we’ve seen consumers across the country upgrade appliances in their existing or new homes, incorporate automated tools like subscription and delivery services into their routines and take steps to safeguard their homes,” said Peggy Ang, head of marketing at LG Electronics USA. “When it comes to offering those features, the LG ThinQ app is a one-stop-shop, delivering both convenience and peace of mind, along with enhanced features that make their lives more enjoyable at home.”
Amazon’s smart reorder service is the latest addition to LG’s ThinQ smart platform, whose benefits include status alerts, remote function control, recipe and cooking instruction downloads, software updates and Proactive Customer Care, a personalized customer support program for LG smart-home appliances.
