Advantages

This front load washer has all the basic features you need and more. If some units come with hot water options or steam, this washer can handle the tough laundry task even without such features and without using bleach. It is very easy to use because of the intuitive controls. The feature-rich washer also works quietly and doesn't make any annoying vibrations that often accompany other units. There are no thumping sounds in the drum. It can also accommodate unbalanced loads, and clothes come out fresh-smelling.

Disadvantages

They still leave some stains and don't always work well with unbalanced loads. It also takes a while for the machine to thoroughly clean the heavy load. Those who experience glitches in the machine's performance rated the front load washer to be 3 out of 5 when it comes to performance.

rotating element failure NEW
by: d wood

I have owned a samsung washer for about six years, and have been satisfied up until now. about six months ago, it quit working.Long story short, I found rusted metal pieces clogging the drain pump, which had to be replaced, as well as the hose between the tub and pump. It worked fine after that until a few days ago. It was running on a spin cycle when it made a noise like an automobile blow-out:"blam--blap-blap-blap..." and had to be shut down. Long story short, more metal pieces in the same hose and pump, only these pieces were bigger. I cleaned and reassembled everything and ran it through the rinse and spin cycle. All was well until it started to spin and came up to speed; it began to vibrate so badly that I had to shut it down. This washer is too expensive to have such a catastrophic failure in only six years.

these washers stink!

This is our 2nd samsung wf328aar. We were sent another when they realized the first wasnt using enough water to clean the clothes. This one uses more water but the clothes still arent cleaned and even when they are promptly put in the dryer they still have a soured smell. We use the fresh tabs every three weeks and leave the door open when not in use. This was the worst waste of money. They cost entirely too much to do such a crappy job.
