The smart new laundry pair, available now, features uniquely designed Touch and Go™ controls that make popping in a load of laundry as simple as pressing a button. With a low price point, stylish design and so many great features, the Tandemlaundry pair is bound to be your new favorite duo.

The sleek pair helps save time, space, money and the planet thanks to its simple but beneficial features. With a 4.0 cu. ft I.E.C. equivalent* capacity, the Amana® Tandem pair can accommodate large loads, helping consumers get more laundry done in less time. The well-designed duo is also stackable, which is a great option for anyone short on space.

This can drop consumers' energy bill by as much as $100 each year, saving $1,000 in utility costs** over the product's lifespan.

"The Amana® Tandempair gives you simplicity without taking away options," said Carlos Johnson, senior brand manager, Amana®. "Whether you have a full load or just need to launder a single blouse on delicate – in your spacious laundry room or small studio apartment – the Amana® Tandemlaundry pair is the duo that fits your needs."
