We bought this washing machine when we moved into our house about 2 years ago, It is brilliant.
It has a nice big drum up to 8kg, which means I can wash less frequently, I tend to do one light load and one dark load a week plus a load for towels bedding etc. This is based on a family of 3.
It looks great in a metalic silver colour, easily mathches most kitchens. there are 7 buttons on the front, all of which sink nicely into the machine and look sleek rather then bulky, there is the power button, the start/pause button, and 5 buttons to alter the settings, type of wash, temperature, spin, option i.e pre wash, rinse and a delay start button.
There is a digital dial telling you how long is left on the cycle, the only slight query on this is its only 2 charectors and the long washes are 2 hours so for 30 minutes it says 2h then at 90 minutes it changes to 90 and counts down the minutes. Not a real issue as its very rare to do a wash of 60 degrees and above.
The drawer is also very sleek and simple to use and remove for cleaning.
after 2 years of use this machine still lives up to standards and washes my clothes brilliantly.
I am now using my samsung P1453 for more than a year and didnt ever encounter any technical fault or problem of any kind due to hard water or anything else. (i must say I always use powder to prevent dirt to deposit in the water cycle)
I think the machine is quite easy to use but i always use the quick progrm all the time. For me the other programs are too lengthy and spend too much power/water. The quick cycle itself always gives me wonderfully washed and spinned laundry.
The small d/adv could be the quite noisy spinning, i wished the laundry powder box could be removed for cleaning, delayed start fnction a bit complex to set (but maybe i didnt quite get the time to see that function well) and the error messages which would make u think there's a program bug! (dE, 5E, 4E...!!)
On the overall, a reliable washing machine.
I have a Samsung front loader washing machine code no P1453/P1253 or P1053/P853 (why so many numbers??)
Anyway I find it's easy to use, has a lot of function. I like the quick wash which I use to save water (even though it's water efficient) and I really like the delay wash function. That allows me the flexibility of putting my clothes in in the morning before going to work and having them just done when I get home and ready to hang out. That way they dont' smell musty from being too long in the machine, especially if you use a hot wash.
1 year on and I have no complaints or problems with it.
