    Add forgotten items to this front-load machine, even after you’ve started the cycle. Just use the convenient AddWash door when you need it.

    Super Speed

    Clean clothes faster. This wash cycle cleans a full load of laundry in as little as 36 minutes, with the same cleaning performance as always.

    4.5 cu. ft. capacity

    There are 14 wash cycles, 5 spin speeds, and 5 temperature settings to choose from. Use the digital LED controls and indicators to set up and check the status of each load.

    Steam Wash

    Get a deeper clean. The washer releases steam from the bottom of the laundry tub, not the top like other washers, to fully saturate each item so nothing needs to be pre-treated.

    VRT Plus technology

    40% quieter than regular VRT. Special sensors keep loads balanced even at high spin speeds, for a laundry cycle you can sleep through.

    Self Clean+ technology

    The washer tub frees itself of dirt and bacteria without using harsh chemicals to get the job done. Plus, you’ll receive a convenient reminder to clean the tub every 40 wash cycles.

    Diamond drum interior

    Treat fabrics gently. The unique interior design reduces wear and tear, so your clothing looks newer for longer.

    Smart Care app

    Control your washer from anywhere. This app will alert you if there’s a problem, then walk you through any actions needed to solve it. Download for iOS or Android smartphones.

    Child lock

    Keep kids safe. Turn the child lock on and the buttons won’t respond, so kids won’t be able to use the washer without you.

      Good Washer, Takes Getting Used to

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

      I definitely like this washer. I have noticed a lot of complaints about noise in other reviews. However, coming from a 13 year old GE, I have to say it is way more quiet than my old washer. I can sleep while it is washing. Now, there are a couple of noises that many are not used to. Primarily the sound it makes when the spin cycle is coming to a gradual stop. You tend to hear a noise that is louder than usual. I think it's the sound of the drum braking. Like brakes on a car. For anyone who has see the original Star Wars Saga, I liken it to the sound you hear when Obi Wan Kenobi disables the tractor beam on the Death Star. I kind of love the sound since that's what it reminds me of. Definitely not something I would complain about. I will say it is going to take some getting used to. I work out 5 days a week, which means lots of sweaty clothes to wash. My old washer which was a top loader would fill up with water. I would leave the lid open with the clothes in the water and put in detergent and vinegar. Then I would let them soak for about 8 hours before putting the lid back down. That would get the stank out of them. With this unit, since it is front load, I can't do that. I have learned that I need to put in the vinegar into the drum, put the detergent in the drawer, close it, set it for Active Wear, push start, let it fill up, then let it tumble around 6 times to get everything soaked into the clothes. At that point I hit the pause button and let it sit while I'm at work. Finally when I come home I hit the start button and let it go. This seems to get the job done for me. Overall I like it. The black stainless is really nice but you will need to wipe it down every now and again because it attracts dust. If you have cats and you keep your litter box in the laundry room like I do, you will notice litter dust builds up on it. However, I just use this as an indicator that I need to take care of my stuff. My old washer was white and you couldn't see this buildup until it was thick and nasty, so it took longer to clean. May as well just get used to wiping it down and having respect for your stuff.

      With its blue door reminiscent of a spaceship porthole, its somber stainless steel, and its control panel buzzing with diodes, this washer is the strongest technological statement that you can make in your laundry room. There is no doubt that this washer is the result of intense research from Samsung. For instance, the design, usage, performance, energy consumption, soundproofing, and connectivity are all cutting edge. In a nutshell, this Samsung washer has it all. Let's start with the AddWash feature, of which Samsung proudly gives the name of this line of washers. Any item forgotten after starting the washing cycle can be added through the AddWash door. This brings a level of convenience which is unmatched by any competitor. With AddWash, there are no more excuses for not switching to a front loader. There are indeed many good reasons to prefer front loaders to top loaders. For instance, front loaders are much much more energy efficient. According to the EnergyGuide, this washer uses 100 kWh per year, which is about a third of the energy consumption of a high efficiency top loader. With power consumption of 200W in wash mode and 550W in spinning mode, this washer should be the prime choice for any conservationist. This washer is also brilliantly quiet. Silence is another traditional advantage of front washers but, with its brushless motor, I have to check through the door to know whether the machine is actually tumbling. In active spinning mode, you can hear a little humming noise, but overall, it is remarkably quiet. So, how does R2-D2 wash? Pretty well so far. My white socks that I use for gardening – don’t ask – came much whiter than with my previous washer. There are many functions, which is great, and it is possible to save your favorite mode such as: normal + extra spin + rinse for example. It is large enough to clean our winter king size duvet and there is a dedicated bedding mode. The “quick wash” is particularly impressive, delivering a load in just thirty minutes. According to Samsung, the steam technology, that this washer uses, helps tackling the deepest stain and reduces the washing time. Finally, there is a possibility to control this washer with your phone. There is a dedicated app designed by Samsung for it. Should a problem arise, this feature should also help to troubleshoot the washer. However, in order to use this “Smart Home” technology, you will have to purchase an adaptor. Given the price tag of this washer, it feels a bit stingy from Samsung that consumers have to spend another $25 on Samsung website to fully enjoy the washer: this deserves to be included in the package. Regardless of this minor adaptor issue, this washer represents a giant technological leap forward, and ticks all the boxes, which should make it the prime choice for anybody shopping for a new washer

      YEP!!! I love this Machine

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

      We researched like crazy to see what machine we would want to upgrade to. I've been a loyal LG washer/dryer appliance customer for a while. I've always like their products. In the past 6 years I've had 2 (yes that's right) 2 motors that went out on LG washers so that was it for them. I found this Samsung Machine and did some careful research. I looked at reviews from MANY websites (amazon, lowes, home depot, sears, etc) and all showed that this was a machine customers recommended. My wife is a massage therapist so we are CONSTANTLY washing large loads of sheets (7-8 at a time). We needed something with a very large Capacity. This machine hit every specification we wanted. The front add laundry door when the cycle has started is kind of interesting. I never thought I would use it but I find myself adding to the cycle a lot. Overall, I'm VERY impressed. The steam cycles are great. I don't know if it's all in my head but I put some pretty soiled clothes in the washing machine with a steam cycle and I really feel they come out better than I've seen with my washing machines in the past. Either way, I don't think anyone would be disappointed with this model. Best Buy delivered and setup for me so that was an awesome added benefit. Definitely would recommend to family and friends.

      Outstanding Washer from Samsung with many features

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase

Ft. 14-Cycle High-Efficiency Electric Dryer with Steam - Black Stainless during thanksgiving sale. Both was installed professionally by BestBuy. The look and feel is great for the washer and dryer combo. This washer has lot of great features and it is 4.5 cu. ft. Capacity. The AddWash™ door eliminates the need to do an extra load of laundry just because you forgot an item. Now you can conveniently add in forgotten laundry after the cycle has begun, without starting all over again. You can get up to a 40% faster wash cycle* – without sacrificing cleaning performance. With Super Speed, you can quickly wash a full load in as little as 36 minutes. With a washer capacity of 4.5cu. ft., you can quickly wash more laundry in a single load, saving you time and effort. Samsung’s Steam Wash technology uses the power of steam to eliminate stains without pre-treatment. Unlike other washers which release steam from above, Samsung releases steam from the bottom of the laundry tub, saturating every item in the load and leading to an even deeper clean. It is very quite washer with Samsung VRT Plus™ technology are quieter than any other washers in its class and are now 40% quieter than regular VRT® . An innovative tub design and special sensors keep heavy loads balanced even at high spin speeds.

      Very impressive washing machine

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      I originally was aiming for a Consumer Reports top-rated older washing machine model from Samsung, but the dealer showed me the newer Samsung product. I did more research and discovered that Consumer Reports' latest issue provided an updated review of top-rated Washing Machine/Drier Combinations and the highlight was this new Samsung washing machine. Turns out that the new washing machine was LESS expensive than the model it replaced and had a couple of great new features (like the small door to add items after the cycle has started and a nifty device that catches lint before it can clog your drain) . I've used the washer/drier pair for almost a month and feel confident in giving each of them a strong review. The washing machine has the same large capacity (4.5 cu ft) as the machine it replaced in our home and fits perfectly under the counter (the new standard of 'large' machines (5 cu ft) would not). I like the broader range of cycles and features to choose from, many of which include steam. It operates relatively quietly and automatically sets a new cycle to match what it just finished as well as easily-programmed 'favorites' of cycle options. I am very pleased with its washing performance and that it takes less time than the older HE machine it replaced. The only suggestion I have is for those who are installing the washer under an existing counter-top: be sure to NOT push the washing machine as far back as you can. If you do, you may have difficult accessing the bleach tray (which is all the way in the back of the pull-out drawer).

      works great but scratches and leaks

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      Washes amazing and is quiet. clothing has come out cleaner then my top loader from 6 years ago ever did. they are are dryer so i use less gas to dry. but I'm very unhappy with the plastic on the front door is very scratched actually came scratched out of the box. another issue is the add door leaks water into the center between the front and inside glass. you can't clean this and it leaves a water mark. geek squad said its a issue cause they don't have a seal there so you just live with the poor looks. so thankful for geek squad the gentleman was very helpful. but samsung were less them helpful when i called they ignored this was a issue instead telling me I'm using the wrong soap, water temps are wrong, I shouldn't use the steam feature and then told me the self clean would fix this issue. so 3 hours and 45 minutes later after i do that for the second time the streaks actually got worse. they refused to help or even send someone out. so here we are stuck with this scratched and water stained washer cause the sale is no longer going on so the set we were going to buy instead of this one is no longer an option. so we are stuck with it. not thrilled at all with looks but at least it works for now. when the brand won't help with issues it really makes it hard to love a product. we love the add an item feature but if it leaks then we can't stand it. we also received it damaged and were told a compensation would be sent cause the washer was delivered with a dent and scratches but here it is two weeks later and nothing, Im actually finding it even harder to be happy with this item with all the trouble we have had.

      Wash machine is great!

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

      Wash machine is working Great! I went to a Samsung front loader to another Samsung front loader because the machine really works. My old machine stopped spinning correctly (something wrong with the drum?).after 7 years and I'm outside the 5 year extended Bestbuy warranty period. Instead of paying someone several hundred dollars to fix it, I decided to buy a new one. Especially after the great sale. Many of the features are the same as my old one except the add-wash feature. I have used it twice already. I was happy that I was able to use my old pedals too with the new washer and dryer. It saved me almost $600. The only issue I had was that I scheduled a day for the machine to be delivered when I purchased it. I received a call 2 days (message left on answering machine) later to reschedule. When I Called back, the gentleman told me that I was still scheduled for delivery on said date but to call the day before delivery to confirm. I called the day before delivery and talked to Theresa who stated the delivery was on-schedule.. That evening, I received a call from the Bestbuy warehouse person and told me that he was calling me to rechedule my delivery as I was the one who had to change the date. I was not happy. I explained to him that Bestbuy was the one who changed the date and I called twice to confirm. After placing me on hold, he did apologize and said that the washer and dryer was not in their warehouse and it was their fault. Delivery was reschedule and that went great. I also received a call from the salesman Bill and apologized.

      Great Washing Machine

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

      The Samsung - 4.5 Cu. Ft. 14-Cycle Addwash™ High-Efficiency Front-Loading Washer with Steam works very well. I like the feature that allows to keep in memory the washing cycle that I use most often. This way, I only have to press one button to be on the right washing cycle. It is very useful to have the little door that allows to add a piece of clothes once the cycle has started. Two minor cons: the buttons are not very sensitive to the touch which means that you have to apply a firm pressure to switch from one option to the other. In doing so, if the pressure is too strong, the selection of the temperature, for example, might go from "Cold tap water" to "warm". therefore skipping the "cold" option. This is just a bit annoying, nothing major. The other issue is that when you choose the cycle to wash towels, for example, the set temperature for that cycle is "cold" . Warm water is not an option, which does not make any sense. Towels should be washed in warm or hot water. So, if you want to wash towels with warm water, you have to choose the cycle for "Bedding", not for "Towels". Despite these minor anomalies, I still give 5 stars because the laundry is washed perfectly well.
