Samsung WF1124XAC Ecobubble
Advantages: saves money on the electricity and water bill, works very easy
Disadvantages: the ecobubble with cold water doesn't really work for me
A washing machine, you simply can't go without one. After our old one was clearly at his end we started looking for a new one and we found this Samsung Ecobubble VRT WF1124XAC Washing Machine for around 700 pounds. It comes with a 12 kg drum size, which is I think the largest one you can get, which seemed handy for us. It's big enough for a double duvet and even hefty curtains.
Samsung Electronics is for most people the most famous part of Samsung, but Samsung does much more as they build skyscrapers and factories, are active in the petrochemical industry, fashion, medicine, finance, hotels and much more different industries. The Samsung Group is a Korean multinational. The company started in 1938 and founded by Lee Byung-Chull . He started in groceries and in no time founded a company with more than 40 employees that is primarily focused on producing noodles. After the Korean war they started building a factory. This was a man with money and guts and started a multitude of companies who are all in no time a great success. Today the company is one of the largest in Korea and provides 1/5 of income for Korea.
The washing machine has a capacity of 12 kg and uses Eco bubbles. This means that air is blown into the drum through holes and the water and washing powder becomes a rich foam cushion that forms almost seconds after the normal cycle starts. With other words the brand claims that you can get 40°C wash results at 15°C temperatures and save up to 70% energy. It was something that appealed to us since the energy prices seems to get higher and higher.
You have some fixed programs were you can choose from. For each program is a set temperature that is suited for the type of clothes you want to wash. In addition with every program you see immediately how long the machine will take to complete the program.
Under the display are 4 buttons that you use to change the default settings of the programs:
* Temperature, you can choose from 95-60-40-30-20 degrees or cold wash
* Speed of the centrifuge set, you can choose from 1400-1200-1000-800-400 speed
* Options: extra prewash, intensive wash, soaking.
On the side of the display are two more buttons, the upper one is for the delayed start, you can specify when you want the washing machine to start. I always find it very handy because I normally make sure the washing machine is just finished when I come back from work so the wet clothes don't stay in the washing machine all day long.
The second button is for the fast washing option, for example if you still want to wash something quick for tonight and you're only an hour more at home then you can use this program, your laundry is washed at 30 degrees and centrifuged at a speed of 800.
At the right are three buttons at the top which is the on and off button, below it you can manually create a program as the temperature and speed. It's all very easy to use and self-explanatory. The display you can see how long it still will be and which part of the program he is (washing, rinsing or centrifugation). Also he adjusted the amount of water he takes when you only uses half of capacity of the drum which saves a lot of money in the end.
I am very happy with this machine. It is a powerhouse that can handle a lot. As with so many devices I use less than half of the functions that the machine offers. A mystery I think is the eco bubble function of this machine and that it even can be used with cold water. However, the standard programs are all set to relatively high temperatures. I tried once washing white clothes with cold water but I wasn't really satisfied as it haven't removed all the stains so I had to wash it again at normal temperature in order to get rid of the stains. Also the problem with cold water wash is that I did not like the idea that you do not kill bacteria with cold water.
I'm satisfied with this washing machine since it's easy to use, has a good capacity and saves money on the electric and water bill. It's difficult to see how much it really saves us as of each month the electricity bill goes up and down but we did notice that it has been lower especially when you compared it to the same month last year. It's just an easy to use washing machine and it feels like this washing machine will last us several years. Five stars.
