My partner and I bought this washing machine to replace our old washer dryer just after Christmas. We managed to buy it in the sale, and used his staff discount which meant we got it for around £500 (still expensive but definitely worth it!)
We chose this machine as it looked nice as well as having a large load capacity and fitting perfectly in our kitchen! It really looks sleek and modern. The only down side is that the dial on the front doesn't push back in which sometimes means I bash it, but that's a minor niggle when looking at the whole product.
It has a seemingly endless combination of cycles, which is great for the varied uses I need! The Super-Eco wash in particular is incredibly efficient, washing at only 15 degrees and only takes 15 minutes! Other manufacturers usually state that their low-temperature washes are for lightly soiled garments, Samsung's Ecobubble means you can use the Super Eco Wash for pretty much everything although you can't wash more than 6kg at a time using this. The ecobubble also means I need less detergent but still get clean fresh smelling clothes at the end.
It can handle a huge load- so means I don't have to get my king size duvet dry cleaned any more- this handles it with ease and gently tumbles it at a low speed instead of spinning it too fast and making it lumpy. This means I can usually do a couple of days washing at one time, saving electricity and time!
It really is easy to use, and you can adjust temperature, easy iron, and spin speed in almost every cycle.
It's quieter than my last machine, despite it being much more poweful, and vibrates much less too. I've cleaned the filters and drainage a couple of times- for my own sake more than it needing it- but was very simple to take apart and easy to clean!
Overall a wonderful purchase- and it came with a 5 year warrenty too!
