This is a first impressions review, I've only had this washer dryer for three days so far.
I needed a new one after my old Whirlpool washer dryer started making terrible sounds finally the bearing went. Also it hadn't been drying properly for a number of weeks.
I spent a couple of days researching washer dryers online. I didn't want to pay a huge amount of money but also I didn't want something cheap that wouldn't last very long. Also I like my technology so I wanted a machine that employed some of the latest advancements. This machine seem to tick all the boxes on top of that it has a 10 year warranty on the motor and at the moment a five year warranty on the machine.
The installation was pretty painless it just went in exactly the same space with the same connections that my old machine did. Some people have complained that the washer is slightly deeper than the stated 60 cm I can confirm this is the case It is in fact about 64 cm deep with all the protrusions.
I haven't really found a problem with this machine and it does seem very energy-efficient especially with the bubble mode turned on. The only little niggle I have found so far is that if you use a gel based Liquid detergent it doesn't really work very well in the drawer. Samsung, in the manual, advise against using a ball directly in the drum. I tried it on one wash and it does make quite a racket so have reverted to adding gel into the drawer. I would warn against using the included liquid detergent drop-in adapter in the drawer and advise that people should just add gel straight into the compartment. You get some residue left sometimes but it seems the best option.
I will add more to this review as I get more experience with this machine.
Time for another load...
About 10 days later... I notice you don't see many suds but it doesn't seem to adversely affect how clean the washing is. Also you have to turn the machine off between programmes, just something to note. I do like the auto off feature as well. It's quite a lot quieter than my previous 1200 spin machine even at 1400.
