GE Profile™ is excited to announce the official launch of Pet Mode, an innovative new feature for the UltraFast Combo ventless washer-dryer.

This game-changing software update allows the UltraFast Combo to remove pet hair from laundry before the wash cycle, ensuring cleaner clothes and a hair-free washer.

Let’s read that one more time… this mode removes pet hair from your clothes BEFORE it washes them.

How Does This Work?

Pet Mode utilizes the UltraFast Combo’s unique closed-loop air flow system and tumbling action to lift and capture pet hair. The high-speed air flow separates hair from fabrics, while the tumbling motion dislodges embedded fur.

The pet hair is then trapped by the machine’s filter for easy removal.

This pre-wash pet hair removal is only possible thanks to the UltraFast Combo’s advanced ventless heat pump technology.

By removing hair before washing, Pet Mode prevents fur from tangling into clothes and clogging the washer drum, pipes, and filters.

New Pet Mode Offers Several Key Benefits:

– Removes pet hair before washing for better cleaning performance.

– Uses 65% less water and 50% less energy than leading pet hair wash cycles.

– Eliminates wasted loads spent rewashing hair-covered laundry.

– Requires no exterior venting, ideal for homes without traditional dryer hookups.

The Pet Mode update is available now via over-the-air software upgrade.

With over 2,000 five-star reviews and 3.5 million cycles logged, the UltraFast Combo is already the #1 selling combo washer-dryer in the U.S.  The addition of Pet Mode cements its status as the ultimate laundry solution for pet owners.
