4.5 cu. ft. Capacity

Washer capacity has a direct impact on how much time you spend doing laundry. Larger tub size means fewer loads, and fewer loads means more time doing other things you love.


Self Clean

Keeps your washer tub fresh and clean by using a combination of soaking, pulsating and high speed spinning to remove dirt and bacteria. Self Clean also sends reminders to clean the tub every twenty wash cycles.


VRT Plus Technology

Reduces vibration 40% more than standard VRT for quiet washing. An innovative tub design and special sensors keep heavy loads balanced even at high spin speeds. Upstairs laundry has never been less obtrusive - run your washer upstairs while your children are asleep.


Soft Close Lid

The Soft Close Lid closes safely, gently and silently, so there are no frightening banging sounds and less risk of accidents!


Diamond drum interior

The diamond drum interior helps extend clothing life by treating fabrics gently. Small water holes help prevent fabrics from snagging and being damaged, allowing fabric care with deep-clean results.


Perfect pair

Samsung washers and dryers team up to make light work of laundry day, while looking great in your laundry room.

Features:

  • 4.5 cu.ft. Capacity - Fewer washers, less time in the laundry room and more time for you.
  • VRT Plus Technology - Reduces vibration 40% more than standard VRT for quiet washing.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Terrible. Do not buy.

Submitted by CBJ4 - 4/14/2019

This is the most unreliable washer. Total waste of money. We purchased the washer on July 9, 2016 and it stopped working 10 months later. The washer stopped spinning. It took 5 different repairmen to fix it and we were without a washer for 2 weeks. Thank goodness this was covered by the warranty. It's now not working again with the same issue. We have not even owned the washer (purchased brand new) for 2 years and we have had major issues. Save your money and save the trouble. Do not buy this washer!!!

Great till it breaks!

Submitted by Mindy is disappointed - 3/18/2019

Bought this 6 months ago. It has been broke 4 months now! We have had the same technician out 5 times! It has flooded our laundry room twice, spent multiple trips and dollars going to laundry mat due to technician taking weeks to get out then waiting on parts. This has been the worst experience with this washing machine and it still doesn't work! Customer support has been awful. We have spent enough money to buy 2 more by now but it's the point we shouldn't have to give in to doing that.

Junk

Submitted by CarrieO - 3/7/2019

We bought this washer a year and a half ago. This is the 3rd time it is being repaired for the same reason. Spin cycle does not complete. No more Samsung for this household!

Won't last

Submitted by Not a fa - 2/16/2019

We bought the set a few years back. Was okay at first. Seemed to hold a lot and seemed to be good for the price. We had a 1 year warranty. We started having issues shortly after 1 year, of course. We've had to replace part after part on the dryer and now the washer is starting to make awful grinding sounds. Now we have to look into fixing that. In the end, you end up spending more money fixing the washer and dryer than what it's worth. Extremely disappointed in this product. Also received a unexpected kit in the mail (which was appreciated as it was due to a recall and Samsung was kind enough to keep us informed) before it was even a year old due to issues with the lid coming off the washer when it is unbalanced. Luckily we never experienced that problem but had to add stickers to our washer. You get what you pay for. The price MAY seem right but I'd advise to look for something better.

Not Impressed

Submitted by Not Again - 1/30/2019

I bought this washer in February 2017, worst washer I have ever owned. Been having problems with it for the past year! It doesn't self adjust a load, vibrates a lot, sometimes it won't start and I have to unplug it for about 10 minutes to reset. And takes a real long time to cycle no matter what the setting! Matching dryer is satisfactory.

Prob worst washer I have ever purchased

Submitted by dontbuythiswasher - 9/9/2018

I have had this for eight months now and am done. If you put in more than 2 pairs of adult jeans, or more than three sheets, and it becomes unbalanced. Then it starts filling up with water and draining and trying to spin again. I have had a beach towel and my toddlers clothes in the wash for the last six hours. I finally just gave up, pulled everything out sopping wet, put it in garbage bags and told my husband to take it to the laundromat because he insisted on a Samsung with no agitator. Our electric bill has gone up 30% since we have had this thing. If you shut the lid and make the mistake of turning it on and hitting start, and two seconds later you want to change the temp, you have to turn the whole thing off and start over. When it starts, it has a 10 second chime it sings to you before it will respond to any button pushing. And when its done, you have to listen to a 10 second song or nothing at all. I have napping children. I have never had deeper more angry opinions about an appliance in my life. DO NOT BUY THIS THING.

Hate the lack of flexible choices

Submitted by AimeeHH - 9/7/2018

I can never open the lid after it starts, either to add a last minute item or to fix a lopsided load that is banging about. Unless of course I turn it completely off. And if I do that, it starts from the complete beginning, wasting all the water and soap I just added. I also hate the buttons. Knobs are much better. All the presettings to do not allow me the choice of making my own combinations of speed and temp. While it does wash things, I would not recommend this to anyone, ever.

First washer

Submitted by Mauria - 8/19/2018

This is my first washer. Working great so far. No issues. Easy to use also... I can't even figure out the controls on some other washers. I just needed something simple and working well.

What can I say...A nice white washer

Submitted by PhiliKing25 - 8/15/2018

Some may find this thing simple looking, but it is actually pretty sleek. The lid also closes slowly, unlike my previous washer that used to bang my hand when I closed it. I have done 2 washes already and everything seems fine, the clothes really get wet and sudsy, clothes come out clean, and the controls are easy to use. The only con I would say is that I am only 5'1 so its hard to reach the bottom of the tub sometimes, but this was actually the most shallow of everything we looked at at the store, so not sure there is anything better.

Good and basic

Submitted by Megger - 8/14/2018

So this machine doesn't have all the bells and whistles of what's out there today, but it's also priced very reasonably. I would like to see a few more knobs like my old washer, but I'm getting quite used to something more contemporary. All in all, great value for what you get.

Excellent Machine!

Submitted by J Kirk - 8/12/2018

We were just simply looking for a starter washing machine, but honestly I don't see why we need anything else in the future. It cleans well, looks sleek, and we can even increase the water levels to really make sure the water soaks through the clothes. Great value for what we have gotten.
