Sears and Amazon extend dashing partnership

BY Dan Berthiaume

Sears is integrating more of its Kenmore smart appliances with Amazon Dash replenishment.

Kenmore smart laundry appliances and dishwashers can now automatically reorder goods from Amazon. Customers can set up select smart models of Kenmore front- and top-load washers, electric and gas dryers, and dishwashers to reorder laundry detergent, dishwasher pods, rinse aid, and/or dryer sheets on Amazon.com as soon as they need replacing.

To set up Dash replenishment with the enabled assortment of Kenmore smart washers, dryers and dishwashers, all of which also work with the Amazon Alexa voice assistant, owners activate the service through their Kenmore smart app using their Amazon account. They then select the products they want to automatically reorder.

In 2018, Sears integrated all smart Kenmore refrigerators with Dash Replenishment so customers can automatically reorder water and air filters when they need replacing. In February 2019, Sears had 46 Kenmore smart laundry, dishwasher, and refrigerator appliances certified as Works with Alexa, meaning customers can control their appliances using voice commands for a variety of tasks.

“Our customers rely on our appliances to help make their busy lives more convenient,” said Peter Boutros, president of Kenmore, Craftsman and DieHard brands and chief brand officer of Sears and Kmart. “Extending Amazon Dash Replenishment to key Kenmore dishwasher and laundry products helps deliver on that promise.”

“We are excited to team up with Kenmore and continue expanding the availability of Kenmore appliances integrated with Dash Replenishment,” said David Jackson, GM, Amazon Dash. “With Dash replenishment, connected appliances can take care of the work and automatically place an order when supplies are needed—Amazon takes care of the rest.”
