Answer: 
I have had the High Eff. Front Loader and it shook the house. We tried everything, even buying the anti-vibration feet. We now own the high Efficiency top loader and you can't hear it running much less spinning. It is very quiet and clothes come out spun damp which makes they dry faster. The washer also has a VRT (vibration reduction technology) and adjusts itself.

From what I've seen with my top loader vs. my mom's front loader, yes. As long as the washer is leveled, you really get no vibration at all, just sounds like a quickly spinning motor. I'm sure if you throw a brick in it, it'll still get unbalanced, but I don't see the top loaders running into the same issues with unbalanced loads, since gravity is helping the situation.

Thanks for the question. While the type of motion (namely, horizontal vs. vertical) differ between top loaders and front loaders, it’s important to note that Samsung’s Vibration Reduction Technology (VRT) is highly effective in reducing noise and vibration in both types of machines.

The spin speeds of some HE front loaders, however, are faster than HE top loaders, and HE top loaders do exert less pressure on the floor by virtue of the horizontal motion.

Answer: 
Yes, when Home Depot installed, the machine came with a hot water line, connector and supply. It has to be installed to have hot water. But if you only have a cold water line in the wall, you might need to call a plumber. I have both a hot water line and cold water line in the wall. I have attached a picture.

Answer: 
The WA50F9A8DSW Washer does have an internal water heater to enable the Sanitize cycle, but it is not designed to compensate for a cold water-only connection. Connecting the washer to only a cold water supply could lead to error codes.

I do not about rpm speeds but the spin cycles are pre-set to the wash cycle you chose. You can change the spin cycle on some wash cycles but not all. I imagine this was designed to protect your clothing. The choices are no spin, low, medium, high and very high. The spin cycle works very well in removing all water for quicker drying.

5.0 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Top Load Washer in White, ENERGY STAR is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge Capacity High Efficiency Top-Load Washer Samsung 5.0 cu. ft. High-Efficiency top-load Washer seems to be quality-made. The interior is HUGE and doesn’t have an agitator. I can wash my king size sheets and king size bedspread together. It takes a long time to wash a load...that's common with today's high efficiency washers. However, its washing capability is so big, I can basically double up on loads. In the end, it doesn't take me any longer to do laundry. The washer is attractive, tall, and works well. I got free delivery, set up, and take-away of my previous washer. I’m pleased, and though it was expensive ($989 + tax), I would definitely purchase it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Washing Machine a 5 plus for rating Its a Samsung; after my Maytag ate itself up ( yes ate itself and my clothes ) it was a Neptune TL. I needed a washer that cleans. Samsung was always coming up ahead of all the other washers in its price range and features. My clothes come out fresh and yes very clean, whites come out bright and not dull, color clothes come out the color they should be with no soap residue. I cant say that about Maytag. If one is questioning what machine to get I would recommend Samsung. You will also love the short song it plays at the end of the wash.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Early review We have only had this washer for a few weeks so I cannot comment on the longevity or durability. However, it is very easy to use, very efficient and so far our cloths seem to come out cleaner. The 1100 RPMs really wisk the water away during the spin cycle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really happy with this purchase!! This is a great washer. Bought it to replace a GE front loader with which we had LOTS of problems. This has great capacity, is quiet, self cleaning (no longer have to make sure the door seal is dry) and it's fast.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall nice washer and quiet It's a quiet machine, except for all of the chimes and finished cycle song it plays. Thankfully you can turn off all of the alert sounds. Make sure that where you are placing the machine that there is plenty of room above it, our lid will not open all the way due to the cabinets above. It's very nice that it automatically sets the water level for whatever size load you put in. It's got more cycles than I know what to do with. I've only used the bedding, normal, towels, and gentle cycle. All work well. The clothes seem to smell fresher than our old center agitator washer. The spin cycle works well, it's quiet, balanced, and will get almost all the water out if set on high speed. One thing I noticed is that if there are several long sleeve shirts or lightweight pants they get twisted and wound up with each other. Maybe that would be reduced on gentle cycle or it could be a characteristic of the bottom agitator, I'm not sure. Overall we are happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what we wanted Amazing capacity. Pretty much does a week's worth of laundry in 1 load.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Takes a little to get used to Replaced a mold prone older front load with this one when it went on an early Black Friday deal. Bought it with the extended warranty and with tax came to a little under $900. No problems with delivery. Home Depot was fast and the guys were very friendly and knowledgeable We have run approx. 13 loads now and used the bedding feature as well as the standard load. At first I did not know you had to select the fabric softener if your using it so when I checked the compartment and it was still there, I did what most do and looked a little closer at the buttons! (Yes, I try to do stuff the hard way!). When pushed, the fabric softener will get used and more time is added to the load cycle so all in all, this is a great way to shorten the wash time....don't use the softener! If you want the highest spin speed, it lets you alter it at the beginning and I like it at the highest so the closes dry faster. Seems like it was to wet on the next setting lower so I go for the fast spin speed most of the time. I have had no problems with the water height due to the weight of the clothes. I did calibrate it like it said so maybe that was a good thing? Seems to use the right amount every time It does make a water swashing sound during smaller loads but I can live with that. It is pretty quiet most of the time but I noted a high pitched whine for about a minute when the spin cycle is starting up and getting into the faster spin mode. It does not last so I assume it is just what it does when it hits a certain speed the quits when it gets even faster. Who knows? Plays a tune if it is out of balance and unlocks so you can re-balance it and this only happened when I had several blankets but it only took one time of moving them around inside the drum. Push start and it went along just fine.
