I purchased a one month subscription at Consumer Reports to read about front loaders and top loaders. This is the third washer I have purchased in 12 years. First was builders grade in my new house and died in 3 years. 2nd (a Maytag) lasted 9 years until the computer board would not clear and would not pump out rinse water or spin or cancel...you get the picture. I was unsure about a front loader but when Lowe's had this model on sale saving me $250 and the reviews weren't bad I decided to purchase. I am still learning all the cycle settings but I am pleased with the washer's ability to clean a load of dirty laundry. I bought specifically to make sure I could was my own comforters and not have to go to a laundromat. I have only had one strange encounter when I selected a cycle and pushed start it did not. This was after I changed the preprogrammed cycle. I think I wanted Delicates with a faster spin than was offered and the machine lights did not blink like they normally do before I pushed start. It would not start and to clear it I turned the machine off and back on. I could select medium spin with delicate cycle but not high. Ok I lived with it. The Maytag I had prior to this was a HE model with an impeller top loader and every 40 cycles or so it would display a clean washer icon. I used bleach to rung the clean washer and it took about an hour to run that cleaning cycle. This washer has an icon display as well after 40 washes but when you run it there is nothing to add no bleach no Affresh. The cleaning cycle uses hot water and runs about 4 hours. It focuses the hot water to the gasket area in the front of the machine and swishes water in the tub filling it with more water than I have seen it use to wash clothes but all in all other than taking 4 hours to do the cleaning cycle I really love my new washer. I have decided next time I see the icon to clean washer I will start in the evening when I don't usually do laundry. I have done my comforter and I do believe it was cleaned better and the spin increased the overall loft of the comforter.

When deciding to replace my old laundry appliances, I did a lot of reading. I was aware that some people had mold/mildew/etc. issues with front loaders but thought that a simple wiping of the rubber ring after washer would resolve that problem. I care for my appliances so assumed I'd have no problems. No longer so sure. After the wash cycle is completed and the clothes removed, I wipe down the fairly wet glass/plastic door and as well as the rubber seal around it. I also wipe and leave open the compartment for the detergent and fabric softener, which are also wet. At this point I feel that the machine is far more high maintenance than the top loader it replaced. However, I wouldn't even mind doing the extra drying steps if I felt as though it would be effective but I don't. I think the machine has a stale or otherwise funky smell nonetheless. I've only had this washer for a little over week because I had to wait a month past the scheduled delivery date to get it (likely the fault of the retailer but double-check availability when ordering). Still, I've done lots of laundry in that time and fear the smell will get worse, not better. I have just done pretty basic washes and still need to read more in the manual. My impression is that there are a plethora of options but it will take some reading and time to be able to fully take advantage of all the settings. I did not purchase an extended warranty at the time of sale because I generally believe that when you pay a lot of money for a high quality product you should be able to depend on it. With respect to this washer however, I would strongly recommend getting the warranty if you decide to buy it.

Keep up with draining the water
You must drain the reservoir to remove moisture and keep away mold.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great product with easy to use controls. This washer was recommended by my daughter who has had it for a few years with no problems. Had problems with old top loader kept going uneven load and restarting rinse and spin cycles. This unit runs smooth with no issues

Best Washer I Have EVER Had!
from South Dakota, USA
This is my third washing machine since becoming a "grown up". The other 2 were top loaders. This one is my first front loading machine, and I don't think a wash day goes by that I don't say at least once how much I love this washing machine! Honestly! My family will tell you that I like to pull up a chair and watch the beginning of each cycle because it just makes me so happy! It cleans our clothes like a dream, is whisper quiet, and even sings a little tune at the end of each cycle. My mother told me I couldn't properly purchase a washing machine without seeing it in person. I picked this out through a search online and couldn't be more satisfied with my choice. So there, Mom! Haha. Fantastic washer!
First Samsung Washer

This is one very nice washer. Probably will never use more than 25% of the features, but nice to know they are there. Please ensure you read the manual to ensure the calibration is run and how to utilize the cleaning steps for the filter in case you ever need it. Only 1 week of use, but so far very impressed as you can see from the ratings.
