Amazed how quiet the washer and dryer are. Washer settings with several preset selections. Select and press Start. You can also adjust water temps, spins if so inclined. Overall time for washing clothes reduced and the results are cleaner with the 'he' liquid detergents (recommended for these newer washers). Great Washer! Sings a tune when done. Dryer works great. Average time with a full load to dry about 38 to 46 minutes. Haven't tried the steam dry, no need. Once dry, sings a tune to let you know and will tumble randomly until you take clothes out to prevent wrinkles. Only complaint is the lint screen. Has gaps at the front that allow stuff to bypass the filter. Will likely need to clean your lint exhaust yearly if using often. Overall great pair that were real happy with.

I loved it at first but about 1 month of owning it I started having major problems it would wash and spin then rinse but no final spin it would go to 9 minutes then refill with HOT water and then go to 9 minutes and do it over and over again,( all day long or until I pushed the power button to turn it off.) It filled with hot water, even if i put cold water settings and yes it was all hooked up correctly. I re-ordered the same machine but now I really think I will get one of your front loaders instead. I DO LOVE SAMSUNG products as I do own many of them and I am not saying that you make bad products and I will buy a different washer made by SAMSUNG . I do not care for a lot of electronic features that is why I bought this machine it was simple to use and entertaining , I loved the little tones it chimed and the extreme quietness of this machine is so awesome . Really It is a nice machine but I need a new machine that dose not need a repair man. I am interested in the huge capacity front loader Samsung makes.

1 very bad feature
Comments about Samsung 4.8 Cu. Ft. Top Load Washer:
The only problem I have found so far is that the washer twists the clothes very badly. I was not expecting that because there is no agitator, but it still twists the clothes. I read somewhere that I should add some heavier items on top to avoid this, but that is not an acceptable solution. The washer should not do it
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

My washer does not wash heavy loads well at all. My machine washable coat came out with grit on it and looked dirtier than when it went in.
I am so excited to finally have a great working washer, thanks Samsung!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
No agitator no problem
from Northern California
I was extremely apprehensive of buying a top loader without the agitator after having a reliable Maytag for 12 years. From what I'd read on top loader reviews I was even more upset. Various stories of knotting up clothes, wrinkling so bad the dryer can't remove them, soap not rinsing out, and the tub not balancing are NOT TRUE with this washer. I felt like I was buying a washing machine that was going to be of lessor performance than the one I was replacing and this was also was NOT TRUE. This washer cleans all of my clothes better than my previous washer and runs quiet. You do have to read up on the features and use the right wash cycles, but you will be pleasantly suprised by the results. The other issue presented in reviews is the need for HE laundry soap. So I go to the soap isle and check. All regular soap brands are High Efficiency approved so soap is a non-issue. The only real issue brought up in the reviews is that the bottom of the tub is too low for anyone under 5'7" to reach. This is true. You will need a retreaving device or step stool or both to get to the bottom of the machine. Other than that I've washed all my comforters, blankets in it with ease and they come out smelling cleaner than with an agitator because this washer can mix the detergent evenly throughout the wash cycle. The fabric softener is mixed in at the right time so it works better. The 4.8 cu ft capacity is more than my old dryer can handle and definitely big enough for any bedding. The normal cycle is perfect for most loads so if you are transitioning from a old washer with an agitator the learning curve is fairly small. This washer I can now say is an upgrade from my old one. All stainless steel tub and bottom plate, not plastic like a lot of the competition has. I'm very pleased with this washing machine. Good value for the price.
So far a good buy
It is a very cool washer. Cleans very well and is super quiet except does have a squeak when the tub changes directions. Only have had a week so far
So far so good
from Wisconsin, USA
After the weekend of laundry catch up time (without a working washer for a week), I love it. So far so good. Can wash double the size of load compare to my previous older front load wash. The pre-soak help made the grimy boys mittens white like new, no bleach or other special detergent needed.
i have only had this unit for a couple weeks but so far it meets or exceeds all expectations. unit is very quiet except during high speed spin cycle which should be expected. washes clothes well. uses less water than my old conventional unit, if that is a concern, but still gets clothes clean, with new technology (aqua jet). Only one slight drawback is the size, takes up more space than old unit but the operation of the unit makes up for the amount of space it takes up. Overall very happy so far with my purchase.
Outstanding washing maching
from Arlington, WA, USA
We have had this washer for 2 weeks now, we love how quiet it is and how clean the clothes come out. The spin cycle works well to get most of the water out of the clothes so the clothes do not have to stay in the dryer as long saving us money. . The steam cycle works great. I think the chimes are a cool touch.
Was deciding between a front loader and this top loader. Glad I made this decision, works just as good if not better. Definitely worth the money, washes clothes very well and is really quiet. I like all the different settings. Great buy.
from Florida, USA
I was reluctant to get purchase a new washer with this technology. My girls assured me the clothes will be cleaner. So far I am pleased with this washer. It has the features I use all the time, and is big enough, the main thing is that they are ready for the dryer. The dryer time is less due to the spinning cycle in the washer.
