    Great features and good price.

    We bought the washer and dryer two months ago. There have been no problems. Clothes get cleaned using less detergent and water.

    The best washing machine I have ever owned!

    I bought this washer about 5 months ago, and it’s been a dream machine. I love the fact that you can put the detergent and the fabric softener in at the same time in the compartment, the machine itself washes the clothes beautifully. The smart feature tells you the status of the washer, such as time left, time to clean basin. This is honestly one of the best purchases I so far don’t regret.

    Best Washer Ever! Perfect Load Space!

    This washer has made my life so much easier. This size is perfect for a family of 5. Not noisy like other washers I’ve dealt with and very convenient “door” when forgetting to add clothing.

    cold water gal

    Not Operator Friendly

    This Machine does not allow selecting a rinse temperature. I usually wash in hot water but rinse in cold water. The rinse water temperature on this machine is very hot which is not appropriate for some whites, namely underwear. No matter which wash temperature I select, when the rinse cycle activates, the rinse temperature becomes very hot. Secondly, there is no drain only feature. I would recommend this product only if the user does not care about the rinse temperature, because it is a good machine otherwise.

    Front loader washer

    I am so happy with this washer it is fantastic; it does what I need, and I don’t have any complaints about it if you need a machine that does everything, pretty much this one will do it.

    Lemon..same issue keeps occurring

    Purchased in May 2017. Two months right before vacation, the machine won’t complete a spin cycle. Got worse and would not get out of rinse cycle because it would start to spin but clunk and stop. No laundry before vacation, inconvenienced having to go to laundromat and friends houses. Machine was under warranty only 2 months old. Used Samsung service and it was a week before someone could even come out. When they did the tech told me up front he has no parts with him. Did a diagnostic and no error codes and machine would spin fine with nothing in machine. So I stood there and made him put a few towels in and sure enough machine would not complete a spin cycle. Left without even opening the machine…came back another week later to replace the board but that wasn’t the issue. It was the wire harness which he claimed must have gotten damaged when the machine was delivered. That did the trick and worked fine up until today…same exact problem. Machine has not been moved. And now out of warranty. If it’s that harness again, there is a design flaw w/this machine if the wires are getting damaged. I’m waiting to see what happens. I should just take the loss and get a new machine because obviously this issue will keep occurring as I’ve seen in others complaints. I buy a large front load washer because I have a big family and lots of laundry. All I can wash right now are a few delicates in a low spin or no spin. Useless and big inconvenience right before the holidays.

    Awesome Product!!!

    We bought the Pair as our first front loaders and couldn’t be happier. The unit is loaded with features and is saving tons of water versus our old top loader.

    Defective Washer, Terrible Customwr Service

    Bought less than a year ago and the washer is defective. The spin cycle resets over and over until the machine is manually turned off. Hydro bills through the roof!! Customer service support was horrible, unapologetically forcing us to pay $300+ out of pocket for the issue to be fixed. I regret buying this machine and I will never purchase a Samsung product again. Unfair consumer practices and poor product quality. Truly a horrible customer experience. Ticket number 4148914785 if anyone at Samsung cares about customers…

    I want my Bosch back.

    We moved to a newly constructed house and I had ot leave my old washer and dryer behind. WE thought the samsung would be perfect for our beautiful new laundry room. Boy how wrong we were.
    1) Washer does not clean anywhere near as effectively as my old one which was 10 years old. Clothes seem dingier after a year of washing in this machine.
    2) Front “add wash” feature is rather silly. You have to stop the washer full stop before using the little front door, at which time you might as well open the large one. The little front door frequently smells awful, and I was told by a repair man that we need to wipe it down after every load. So this great “time saving” washer now requires me to open the useless little door and wipe it down after every load?
    3) No real control. Do not be fooled by the buttons – you can’t change some of the setting depending on which cycle you choose. For example, if you want to wash something on extra hot, with low spin – good luck finding that setting. Normal won’t allow me to go above warm. ?Heavy duty lets me do really hot, but I can’t do no spin. I just want to select the combos I want – not something that someone at Samsung decided was optimal.
    4) Leaks constantly … had service person in as it was constantly triggering our wet floor alarm. Was told it’s normal that it’s just the “overflow” . seriously – normal for a washer to leak?

    5) Thought we would use the notify system – nope never use it – never.

    The only thing I like about this washer is the little song it plays when it’s done. (a song which drives my husband batty btw 😉

    Disgruntled owner

    Malfunction after a couple months

    We bought these late 2018. Had them installed Jan 5. Serivice guy out twoce already for dryer not drying clothes. Now the washer is leaving soapy water in the floor. Either we got two lemons or Samsung appliances are garbage. Most likely last Samsung appliances I ever buy. I don’t even want these anymore

    I waited 3 months to post this review so I would have time to use and evaluate the product. I must confess, I am in love. This washer is super quiet and the clothes are clean. It is the easy to use. A consumer will not have problems with this washer if they follow directions on clean the unit and the filters.

    2 repairs needed in 2 years – Do Not Buy

    I am extremely frustrated and disappointed with this machine. I have never had issues with any fairly new large appliances in my life until this washer. We purchased it and the matching dryer 2 years ago. Last year it started going in an endless loop between the rinse and spin cycle. The bracket in the back was broken and needed to be replaced. Now, almost another year later we are experiencing the same issue. However, this time it is the main control panel which is an expensive fix. I realize that it is past warranty but 2 major issues in 2 years is not acceptable but Samsung does not seem to care. I guess that is what I get from buying an expensive appliance from an electronics company.

    Broke within 6 months

    I recently replaced ally appliances with Samsung products. Most of them, has since then either started making some strange noises or just completely stopped working. My washing machine being one of the just stopped working appliances. Regret for going with Samsung is real…

    Worst product don’t buy.

    Please don’t buy any Samsung washer or dryer because they don’t honor their warranty. Secondly, the washer or dryer has 99 problems that Samsung can’t solve. Please stay away ASAP.

    Machine refilling with water – defective!

    I bought this machine 2 weeks ago and in the second week the washer is filling up with water by itself. We were told to check if pipes were leaking etc, we did and there’s no leak. Please note that we were instructed to purchase new hose and pipes etc, which we did. Also the delivery people were the ones that did all the connection.

    Additionally, the quick wash function does not work at all. After several attempts to wash just underwear it keeps giving us the 4C error code. Why would I want a machine where only the functions on the left works but not those on the right!!????

    I phoned on July 27th and reported the issue and got a service number. I was informed that on Monday, July 29th the following week I would hear from a technician. One week after, I heard from no one. I called back and they said the ticket was closed and that someone called me once on Monday! Please note I work in an environment where I can take and make phone calls, I also have voicemail, no one called me. The rep told me that the protocol dictates that they should call 3 times but they only called once and closed the ticket.

    The next step now I was told is that I will receive another call from the service centre as soon as they are available!!!

    I am very disappointed, if my old machine didn’t want to be replaced I would still have it. I now have to be paying for a defective machine that no one wants to come and repair!!!

    It was so easy to purchase the machine but it’s one of the hardest things to get some proper customer service!!! I know for sure that I won’t be purchasing another piece of Samsung appliance and especially from Home Depot.

    Service is everything and you should pay attention to people who purchase your products!!!

    Let’s see if I receive a call today Saturday, August 3 or Tuesday August 6, on when a technician would oblige a visit to fix Samsung’s defective washer.
