I try to spend as little time as possible near my washing machine and dryer, so the idea of a washer with a built-in iPod dock is less than appealing to me. Apparently, LG's patent for the "Home appliance with MP3 player" is banking on a whole lot of people liking the idea. The drawings show a dock for the iPod/Zune (or any MP3 player for that matter) on the top of the machine, combined with speakers and a USB port.
The colorful washing machines seemed like a big enough novelty, but if you really want to listen to music and wash your clothes I suggest grabbing your MP3 player and headphones instead of enduring tumble noise.
