Maytag Washer and Dryer Set

The Spruce Pets / Kristin Kempa

Maytag has introduced a new washer and dryer line designed to remove five times as much pet hair as a standard washing machine. The Pet Pro System, which includes both a washer and dryer, is exclusive to Lowe’s through March.

According to Maytag, the washer-dryer set is the first of its kind, specifically made to rid our clothes, sheets, and blankets of that pesky dog or cat hair. Brian Shaunfield, a Lowe’s store manager in Charlotte, N.C., says the set is ideal for families who own at least one furry, shedding pet and want a "surefire" way to get it off their garments. 

Plus, right now the Maytag Pet Pro series is deeply discounted—you can get as much as $600 off the washer and dryer set! This deal is a limited time offer, and only available until January 30.

It's certainly worth considering if you own a dog—or several—who's a member of a breed that sheds heavily.

The Maytag Pet Pro Top-Load Washer’s main feature is the Pet Pro Filter, which uses a unique agitator design to filter out as much as five times as much pet hair as a traditional wash cycle (it also uses more water, to submerge and lift hair from fabric). The filter is easy to remove from the center of the washer and empty.

The Pet Pro system includes several other features as well, including a built-in faucet in the washer, a "deep fill" option for more water, and wrinkle prevention in the dryer. 

Ideally, the Pet Pro system allows us to spend more time playing with our pets than cleaning up after them. Maytag surveyed 2,000 pet owners, and 59% of them said they spent too much time cleaning. Another 57% said the cleaning takes about four hours out of their week. 

Hopefully, less hair removal will let you attend to other duties.
