For all those out there that are advocates for the agitator clothes washer as I was, give this Samsung a try. I was unsure, with mixed feelings about buying an HE washer. I had heard many things about it that were negative. I would say, try it, you may convince yourself if you have an open mind. Things you need to know: 1. Forget about the agitator--forget it!!!! Forget the huge amount of water our clothes would swim in while the agitator beat your clothes up---forget it!!! Think of the principle that your Mom did when there was a stain in the clothes---she would take some stain remover or detergent and grab that area of clothing between her hands and would rub vigorously to help get that stain out. Well, these HE machines use that principle. 2. Forget the large amount of detergent you used to add. And also the large amount of fabric softener. This HE machine needs only a couple of tablespoons of detergent and about the same softener. If you use more you are just wasting detergent and then there is the risk of not getting all the detergent out when the clothes rinse. MORE is not better!!!!!!!! 3. Forget the 30 minute wash cycle on the agitator machine. Okay, it takes longer. If you are in such a rush to wash your clothes, slow down and smell the roses for a change. If you are in a rush, go to the laundromat- use several of the agitator machines and beat your clothes up and then throw them in one of those blast furnace dryers they have there..... Just organize your schedule a bit differently to accommodate this change. It really is not a huge deal, in my opinion. 4. Forget that you need your clothes swimming in gallons and gallons of water to get them clean. Yeah, this one was hard for me to understand because some loads looked like they are barely wet. But I have yet to not have a good wash cycle and the clothes are well rinsed. So, these 4 things are hard to break away from when you move on from an agitator machine to a HE machine. This Samsung has proven to me that it works and works well!!!! I still have to wonder sometimes how it does such a good job. I have read past reviews about people complaining that the machine makes weird noises when it is washing. Yeah, it does but I have not seen any issues with that. Just like the music tune it plays at the end of the cycle. It is soothing and less stressful. If you can't hear it then set a timer on your stove or your phone to "Beep" at you if you rather. All in all a great machine in my opinion. One last idea----READ the manual from cover to cover (or at least the English part). The one con I would say with any of today's machines is that they are not built like the old ones that were 15+ yrs old. My old machine weighed a ton (all steel gears, metal outer tub, anything that moved seemed to be made of metal). These new machines are a LOT lighter because so much plastic is used today so they won't hold up nearly as long. The retailers say newer machines may hold up only for about 10 yrs now.

We purchased this washer over 3 months ago, big mistake. It just does not clean our clothing. We have to spot treat every thing and still spots and stains remain. We have a Samsung service person check out the machine(after several phone calls and a 3-4 weeks waiting from service) he told us that everything was working as designed.. We now get a little better cleaning by pre-spotting, using only the 80 min blanket cycle and post rinse. Still clothing are still not clean. We will end up throwing out this machine and replacing it with the old fashion type. Please don't make the same mistake we made.

I am extremely pleased with every aspect of this appliance. The controls are easy to use and I have found the washing results of the clothes to be very positive. I have also been very pleased with the quite nature of operation of this item.

I really like the Samsung washer it brought my wife and I up to the 21 fst century, as far as the washer goes, it really does the job washing the clothes. It is very impressive and can wash a lot of clothes that is the good part. I thank you for letting me give a this feed back, have a great day.

We bought this washer because it was rated as quiet. It has exceeded our expectations.
Awesome Washer and Dryer
from Springfield, MO
I have had my brand new Samsung washer and dryer for a week. Wow, they blow my socks off. High quality. Washes and drys clothes quickly. Clothes are totally clean and fresh. Highly recommend this washer and matching dryer.
I love this washer!
from Buckley, WA, USA
Although, after 11 years I guess anything would have been better? But I really do love this washer (and dryer). Before purchase, I read some complaints about the water level and other things, but I've not experienced any of these problems. If I'm putting in A LOT of items, I use the heavy duty setting. Otherwise, I use the settings for what I'm washing. I.e. sheets and blankets I use the bedding setting, etc... I have never seen it not fill with a proper amount of water. And this is an HE product, so it's supposed to use less water, and not destroy your clothes. That's the other thing I love about this washer... without that agitator, I believe our clothes WILL last a lot longer. It's nice not to hear my clothes being ripped around in the water. I will say, it seems to be louder than my old washer, but ONLY when it's draining... and only when it's pretty much empty, but the pump is still running to make sure all the water is out. Other wise, I don't even notice it. So nice to have clean, fresh smelling clothes again!
Loving this washer so far!
from New Jersey, USA
I'm very happy with this washer (only one week in). I will say that for anyone under 5' 6" inches it may be hard to reach the bottom of the machine. LOVE the built-in sink feature as I do not have a sink in my laundry room.
from Glen Mills, PA, USA
I've owned my samsung washer (Model #DV45H7000EW/A2) for 3 months. I'm still getting use to the low water level and wished that I could add more water for certain loads. My electric bill and water bill have not changed so I'm not sure what the "high efficiency" model is actually saving. Still not sure if I like a high efficiency washer.
from Tennessee, USA
Have only had this washer for less than a month but just love it. It's efficient, quiet and looks good too.
