Samsung Washing Machine

Samsung Frontloaders

These are hit and miss. Many customers agree, their washers are top performers and are very satisfied with their purchase. However, the Samsung lineup seems to suffer from poor quality control, resulting in a large number of problematic machines.

Most of these models are Energy Star certified, using very little water or detergent. The steam cleaning /sanitizing models are a little heavier on the electricity, but a delayed start feature lets you time your laundry for off-peak periods.

Users report great versatility and performance in their washers, especially given the price point – with a few exceptions, Samsung’s washers are very well priced for their feature sets. Ranging from high-tech to workhorse, the washers in this range are designed to cover the spectrum – whatever your space requirements or laundry needs, Samsung makes a washer to suit.

Some things you’ll want to keep in mind:

  • Samsung quality control misses lots of lemons
  • Reports of noise, vibration and “washer walk” abound
  • The WF448AAW allegedly damages/disrupts aquatic environments

    Samsung Top Load Washers

    You’ll find a bit more variety with the top loaders. A full dozen models are currently available and many include special features that are great additions. If you have larger laundry loads, these are ideal choices because they can handle more at one time. The load capacities for these models range from 6 to 9 kilograms (about 13 to 20 pounds).

    These washers all have multiple water level options – 4 to 5 levels for most – which can help you keep your water bill lower. Instead of filling the washer all the way up, you can only use enough to do the load you need. Some of the washers available will even have special washing levels for blankets, soaking, and more. That way you can always be confident that the finished wash will be as clean as you want.

    Now if you prefer a semi automatic washer you’ll find a full eleven models available. These range in capacity from around 6 to 7 kilograms (13 to 15 pounds).

    These models are quite powerful and can complete a wash in around a half an hour. Some of the models have the super dry technology which actually draws more water out of the clean clothes so you won’t have to spend as much time and energy drying them.

    Other Washer Features

    One of the nice things about the automatic washers is that many of them include Silver Nano technology. For centuries, people have recognized the anti-bacterial properties associated with silver. Many of Samsung’s washers have now incorporated this technology so that you can get thoroughly clean clothing.

    This is a great idea if you have children and want to protect them from nasty bacteria that might not be killed in a regular laundry cycle. Plus, the use of the silver means you don’t have to use hot water which means you can save money on your energy bills.

    Another good feature on the top loading models is known as the Mist Shower. When you begin the washing cycle, a spray of water comes down and starts mixing with the detergent early on.

    This means you’ll have a more well-mixed detergent and one that is much easier to rinse off afterward. Both of these aspects of the feature are going to help you reduce your water demands and your water bills.
