Alexa, the Amazon-developed virtual assistant, will now be interacting with many home appliances.

Sears has announced today more than 40 Kenmore smart appliances are now certified as Works with Alexa.

The select Kenmore smart appliance models have received Works with Alexa certification, meaning they meet Amazon's high bar for responsiveness, reliability and functionality.

Customers who purchase Kenmore smart appliances with the Works with Alexa certification can control their appliances using voice commands, including the examples, below:

Laundry:

  • Alexa, ask Kenmore Smart "how much time is remaining on my dryer cycle?"
  • Alexa, ask Kenmore Smart to start my washer.
  • Alexa, ask Kenmore Smart "what is my washer doing?"

Dishwasher:

  • Alexa, ask Kenmore Smart "what is my dishwasher doing?"
  • Alexa, ask Kenmore Smart "how much time is remaining on my dishwasher cycle?"
  • Alexa, ask Kenmore Smart "do I need to add rinse aid?"

Refrigerator:

  • Alexa, ask Kenmore Smart "what is my refrigerator's freezer temperature?"
  • Alexa, ask Kenmore Smart "what is my refrigerator's temperature?"
  • Alexa, ask Kenmore Smart to turn on the ice-maker in my refrigerator.

In 2018, the Kenmore brand introduced a line of room air conditioners that are compatible with Alexa and certified as Works with Alexa.

Kenmore also recently announced Amazon Dash Replenishment is available on Kenmore smart refrigerators so customers can have water and air filters reordered automatically when they need to be replaced.
