Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by M4HE Excellent Washer with lots of features
This is my 1st HE Washer. I looked at others and decided on this one. Very large tub which I was looking for. Can wash 3 loads at a time. Was a little leary at the water level with an HE, but have gotten use to it. My cloths come out very clean. Cleaner then my old washer that died. I did however, calibrate my machine before I used it as they said in the book and have not had any problems. I do like the different wash features. I also purchased the matching dryer.

For all those out there that are advocates for the agitator clothes washer as I was, give this Samsung a try. I was unsure, with mixed feelings about buying an HE washer. I had heard many things about it that were negative. I would say, try it, you may convince yourself if you have an open mind. Things you need to know:
1. Forget about the agitator--forget it!!!! Forget the huge amount of water our clothes would swim in while the agitator beat your clothes up---forget it!!! Think of the principle that your Mom did when there was a stain in the clothes---she would take some stain remover or detergent and grab that area of clothing between her hands and would rub vigorously to help get that stain out. Well, these HE machines use that principle.
2. Forget the large amount of detergent you used to add. And also the large amount of fabric softener. This HE machine needs only a couple of tablespoons of detergent and about the same softener. If you use more you are just wasting detergent and then there is the risk of not getting all the detergent out when the clothes rinse. MORE is not better!!!!!!!!
3. Forget the 30 minute wash cycle on the agitator machine. Okay, it takes longer. If you are in such a rush to wash your clothes, slow down and smell the roses for a change. If you are in a rush, go to the laundromat- use several of the agitator machines and beat your clothes up and then throw them in one of those blast furnace dryers they have there..... Just organize your schedule a bit differently to accommodate this change. It really is not a huge deal, in my opinion.
4. Forget that you need your clothes swimming in gallons and gallons of water to get them clean. Yeah, this one was hard for me to understand because some loads looked like they are barely wet. But I have yet to not have a good wash cycle and the clothes are well rinsed.
So, these 4 things are hard to break away from when you move on from an agitator machine to a HE machine. This Samsung has proven to me that it works and works well!!!! I still have to wonder sometimes how it does such a good job. I have read past reviews about people complaining that the machine makes weird noises when it is washing. Yeah, it does but I have not seen any issues with that. Just like the music tune it plays at the end of the cycle. It is soothing and less stressful. If you can't hear it then set a timer on your stove or your phone to "Beep" at you if you rather. All in all a great machine in my opinion. One last idea----READ the manual from cover to cover (or at least the English part).
The one con I would say with any of today's machines is that they are not built like the old ones that were 15+ yrs old. My old machine weighed a ton (all steel gears, metal outer tub, anything that moved seemed to be made of metal). These new machines are a LOT lighter because so much plastic is used today so they won't hold up nearly as long. The retailers say newer machines may hold up only for about 10 yrs now.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by hatemywasherinok777 the Worst machine ever!!!!!!
I have owned this hunk of junk for about 6 months and have regretted ever wash load. I have yet to have clothes come out clean, it takes hours to wash a load because it has to readjust the load at least twice and then I have to stop the washer, adjust the load by hand, and hope for a spin cycle. I have tried small wash loads, larger wash loads and it still doesn't work. Save yourself the frustration and get a good ole machine with a middle agitator.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by momto3boys WORST washer ever!!!!!!
This is literally the WORST washer ever. It claims that you can wash more clothes because of the large capacity, but you can't fill it up with clothes because the water level is so low that it doesn't even get all of the clothes wet. You can't adjust the water level because it is suppose to be weigh the wash load and set the water level accordingly. I actually wash LESS clothes so that there is room in the washer so that it all gets into the water and has room to wash the clothes. I literally have to pause each load to check to make sure that all the clothes are pushed down into the water to get washed. I have actually resorted to washing large loads on the bedding cycle, which takes 80 minutes, so that there is enough water in the drum. Invest in spray stain remover because you will need to drench your kids clothes in them since the washer doesn't swish them around very well. I've owned this washer for 10 months and would return it if I could.

My Samsung washer has a catchy ringtone at the end of the cycle.
