Samsung WF209ANW front load washer
Size does matter, especially for households that do a large batch of laundry cleaning week after week. But even though the Samsung WF209ANW is a little short in capacity compared to its 4 cu. ft. contemporaries, it still has features that make up for a good cleaning performance.
The WF209ANW is one of the many front-loading washing machines being offered by Samsung. With 3.7 cubic feet of capacity, this washer has enough room to handle most types of garments at sizable loads. With such a large capacity, users don't have to worry about having to run multiple loads at smaller sizes. Instead, they can save on your electricity and water by running fewer, larger loads. The simplicity and functionality of the Samsung WF209ANW is perfect for anyone who needs a quality washer at a relatively good price. Here are some of the main features of the Samsung WF209ANW 3.7 cu. ft. front load washer:
Extra Large Capacity
Aside from being able to fit more clothes into the washer, the extra large capacity of the Samsung WF209ANW also allows enough breathing room for the clothes. Even if a large load is thrown in, half or even three-fourths full, the washer still has enough room to give clothes a good and effective wash. It's important not to overload the washer, or else the clothes may not get a thorough wash.
Direct Drive Inverter Motor
- Another feature of the Samsung WF209ANW is a motor system that is designed especially to reduce the vibration and noise produced when in operation. The direct drive inverter motor doesn't make use of belts or gear, which helps in reducing the motor's sounds and vibrations. This powerful motor drives power directly to the washer tub, reaching spin speeds of up to 1,150 rotations per minute (rpm). This is a powerful motor that runs more smoothly and more quietly than many other washers in the market.
Vibration Reduction Technology
Aside from the smooth and quiet motor, the Samsung WF209ANW is also fitted with Vibration Reduction Technology. The machine is built with less moving parts, which means less vibrations, moving, and noise. The washer also makes use of springs and suspensions to keep the machine balanced.
The Samsung WF209ANW is certified by Energy Star. This washer makes little use of energy and water, that it may even qualify for tax benefits in some markets. The front-loading design of the washer means that it makes use of around one-third less water than top-loading machines. Also, the way that the water is carefully controlled throughout the wash ensures that little, if any, water goes to waste. The front-loading design also makes use of gravity to help tumble the clothes, in effect, using less energy than top-loading machines.
The best advantage of the Samsung WF209ANW is the fact that it is a cost-effective washing machine. Consumers can buy this washing machine at around $700. That is relatively cheap, if you consider the fact that some of the front-loading machines in the market go for over $1,000. Aside from the good price tag, consumers also get to save on your utility bills. With such an energy-efficient design, they can be sure that this washer will take up less resources than many of the other washers in the market. Less power and water consumption by the washer equates to cheaper bills and environmental-friendliness.
Another advantage of this washer is its quiet operation. With the Vibration Reduction Technology, some consumers were able to place this washer at the main level of their home. This washer is also very easy to use, which makes it a great choice for anyone who wants a washer that is simple to use and easy to understand. The washer has eight wash cycles, three wash options, four temperature settings, four spin speeds, and three soil levels. All of the settings and options are controllable through the electronic panel and the LED display.
Some people may find the price tag a bit steep, especially if they are more familiar with the prices of top-loading machines. However, it's important to take into consideration the savings that they can make with this energy-efficient washer.
The washer only comes in one color: white with chrome. This may be disappointing for those who are looking for a washer in another color, such as black or red.
The Samsung WF209ANW is a good, all-around washer that can handle most of the laundry needs. With a great design that is simple and practical, this washer may be able to provide just the right cleaning action for different laundry needs. If looking for a washer this is quiet, effective, efficient and simple, the Samsung WF209ANW is a good option.
