This washer is saving me money several ways: we have very hard water so we have a softener - since this machine weighs the load and adjusts the water accordingly it saves on water softener salt. Being able to do all my comforters, sleeping bags and bathroom rugs at home saves a ton of money and time spent at a laundry mat. Plus I don't have to worry about what was in the public washer before I used it. We have allergies to fragrances and they put really strong fragrances in laundry soaps these days! I also do not have to use as much soap with this machine - savings! Since the capacity is so large I don't have to do as many loads. but it also handles a small or delicate load just fine. The larger capacity also gets clothes cleaner and fresher. At first I was intimidated by all the new technology on it (I am old school, I still write checks!) - but it is real easy to operate. I love my machine!

I've had this machine for 3 weeks and already needed to call for service. I noticed immediately that the water level was NOT sufficient to clean my clothes. I first tried washing a blanket which the machine "pushed" up the center leaving only the sides washed and the middle of the blanket dry. It also did the same with towels. I tried washing about 1/2 load of towels on the normal setting and after the machine "weighed" the towels it only filled about 3/4 the amount of water needed pushing them up in the center where they remained slightly damp but wet on the sides. Although the machine agitates, it is not enough to evenly distribute the clothing. When I tried to change the cycle to use a different setting it drained all of the water before filling it again then filled it with too much water since the towels were wet from the previous setting. The "timed" settings are also extremely too long for most of itâ€˜s settings up to 90min defeating the energy efficiency of this unit. I bought this machine because I wanted a machine that could handle a bigger wash load as well as comforters but it simply is not up to itâ€™s standards in performance or energy efficiency

WORST washer ever!!!!!!
This is literally the WORST washer ever. It claims that you can wash more clothes because of the large capacity, but you can't fill it up with clothes because the water level is so low that it doesn't even get all of the clothes wet. You can't adjust the water level because it is suppose to be weigh the wash load and set the water level accordingly. I actually wash LESS clothes so that there is room in the washer so that it all gets into the water and has room to wash the clothes. I literally have to pause each load to check to make sure that all the clothes are pushed down into the water to get washed. I have actually resorted to washing large loads on the bedding cycle, which takes 80 minutes, so that there is enough water in the drum. Invest in spray stain remover because you will need to drench your kids clothes in them since the washer doesn't swish them around very well. I've owned this washer for 10 months and would return it if I could.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
the Worst machine ever!!!!!!
from Oklahoma City, OK, USA
I have owned this hunk of junk for about 6 months and have regretted ever wash load. I have yet to have clothes come out clean, it takes hours to wash a load because it has to readjust the load at least twice and then I have to stop the washer, adjust the load by hand, and hope for a spin cycle. I have tried small wash loads, larger wash loads and it still doesn't work. Save yourself the frustration and get a good ole machine with a middle agitator.
Better than advertised!

After finding out why the washer did not fill with water like the older machines,then we where very pleased with washer.Does not use a lot of water but gets the clothes clean.
Good price Poor performance
from SE Oklahoma
Having been Samsung customers on other products we bought this washer with matching dryer from the quality we have got use to. After three months of trying everything we have got use to the idea that we'll have to keep a spray bottle of stain remover close by. We have rebalanced recalibrated and added a little water to bring the water level up and used several different detergents. We like the looks and features this machine have but if you put the clothes in dirty, like working in the garden dirty, they'll come out dirty.

We owned a bottom of the line washing machine for years and bought this when we moved to a new home. We love it and are already able to see savings in water and drying expenses as a result.

I have been nothing but impressed with Samsung products over the years. This washer is no exception. Its a strong, steady, durable design with a very pleasing aesthetic. It has a deep tank, which can hold a phenomenal amount of clothing. This might be an issue for shorter people, but on the average, its a nice feature. Having come from a traditional 'cheaper' washer style, the sounds this one makes(what little bit can be heard) is something to adjust to. Having a low profile agitator it uses short quick bursts instead of a steady back and forth. The only downside to it, is the length of time it takes to run through normal cycles. Its very much a fire and forget machine. Push the button, come back in an hour and a half. All in all, a very well rounded machine from a reputable company. Being someone who works in the business of delivering and installing these in peoples homes, Samsung is at the top of the food chain, in my humble opinion.
I am in love!
I ADORE this washing machine! LOVE LOVE LOVE! Almost all the complaints Iâ€™ve read on various sites regarding this model are from people who have never had an HE machine before. I have had an HE so Iâ€™m used to the longer time and familiar with how to load it properly (heavier clothes on bottom, even them out around the drum; people who donâ€™t this get the â€œunbalancedâ€� messages). Iâ€™ve always preferred HE, since there is no agitator to mangle or snag my clothes. No other washing machine has ever gotten things this clean! The bottoms of socks come out like brand new. that NEVER happened in my other machines, even with All or Shout. I donâ€™t even have to spray Oxy Clean on shirt cuffs or pant bottoms for them to get clean. Clothes come out smelling fresh, too; my old machine always had a bit of a sewer smell no matter how many times I cleaned it. I wondered why it came with a clear lid; then I found myself watching it work and was fascinated! it spins the drum when it starts, to get the weight of the load and make sure itâ€™s balanced. And, when it fills, it spins the drum so the water and detergent get distributed evenly (my old machine didnâ€™t do that). Brilliant! The fact that the detergent drawer is in back and gets thoroughly rinsed every time is genius, as well; my old machine had dispensers in the corners and water never cleaned them all the way, so they got mildew and other goop in them. I love that it has an extra spin cycle too, in case you have heavier wet things or get caught in the rain. I havenâ€™t had to use it, however, because things come out of this washer so DRY! even heavy bathmats that used to be really wet after a spin are dry, and towels are almost totally dry. I save so much drying time! I am thrilled with this washing machine.
