Image Feature

4.2 cu. ft. Capacity

Washer capacity has a direct impact on how much time you spend doing laundry. Greater tub size means fewer loads, and fewer loads means more time doing other things you love. With a washer capacity of 4.2 cu. ft. - or 2.8 laundry baskets - you'll save up to 3 hours on laundry every week.*

Image Feature

Steam Wash

Samsung's Steam Wash cycle has been engineered to improve the cleaning quality of your wash. 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 with no pre-treatment necessary.

Image Feature

Sanitize and Allergen Cycles

Our sanitize and allergen cycles eliminates up to 99% of bacteria and kills up to 95% of allergens in each laundry load. Eliminate pet dander and dust mites from your clothes with the sanitize/allergen feature.

Image Feature

VRT Technology

Samsung's patented VRT® technology reduces noise an incredibly low level. Its innovative tub design balances heavy loads quietly and with ease. Upstairs laundry has never been less obtrusive - run your washer upstairs while your children sleep.

Image Feature

Self Clean+

Our new Self Clean+ technology keeps the washer tub fresh by removing dirt and bacteria without the use of harsh chemicals. Self Clean+ also sends reminders to clean the tub every forty wash cycles and even sanitizes the gasket.

Image Feature

Smart Care

Skip customer service and troubleshoot issues straight from your smartphone. Smart Care interacts with your washer and dryer to perform an immediate diagnosis and offer quick solutions.*

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Looks great. And love the stainless steel color.

Front load washer 6/9/2019

Had this washer for over 2 years and it's been great so far. Only have problem once but it has nothing to do with the washer or Samsung. The water filter in the back connected got all kind of dirt in it and for that reason the washer was acting all weird. Quick clean up solved the problem.

Disappointed in quality

klassylass 3/14/2019

We've had the washer/dryer set for only about 3 years. We noticed the washer started leaking not long after the 2 yr warranty had expired (of course) and it appeared to have been doing it for a while. Wasn't a lot, though, so we just put a towel down when doing laundry. Washer does get smelly, though, despite cleaning and leaving it open. It seemed to do an okay job on washing though, but not spectacular. About two weeks, the dryer stopped working and the cost to repair is so much that we've just decided to scrap the set and buy something that is NOT Samsung.

Dead immediately after warranty

Michiganman123 1/6/2019

I bought this at the end of 2016 and it worked fine. While it has a number of frills, we bought it for the size, the right price and there was a local deal at home depot for free delivery and set up. 5 months after the warranty expires I have a washer that gives multiple errors, won't complete a cycle, takes 4-5 hours to complete a load when an error doesn't stop it first. It has the most obnoxious panels to remove to even get to the components so repair guys want 150-200 to even tell us what's wrong. Never again. You lost us Samsung. Extend the warranties beyond 24 months, or build better stuff.

Clothes smell so fresh!

Jaxjagjen 11/1/2018

I bought my Samsung front loading washer 10 months ago. With 6 children whom all play sports, I wash on average 3-4 loads of laundry per day. My Samsung does a wonderful job at keeping up with me. I also love it for washing comforters and bedding.

Known defects do not buy

Steve Preskill 10/10/2018

These samsung washers have known issues with the circuit boards going bad between 13 and 18 months of age. Samsung does nothing about the known defects, and refuses to even give part numbers so you can buy replacements on your own. Stay away from Samsung appliances.

Washer is very loud!

Dee P 9/8/2018

This washer is very loud! When the washer is on the spin cycle it sounds like a jet taking off. Also, during the spin cycle the machine vibrates loudly! The washer frequency gets out of balance during the spin cycle. Wjen not in use, you must keep the door open otherwise the washer smells terrible inside. This occurrs despite regularly running the clean function on the washer. I don't think the washer is getting the close clean b/c it does not use very much water. Sometimes clothes come out with dry spots on them!

Outdated Already

NurseKatherine 8/11/2018

I bought this machine in summer 2015/2016. I find myself ready for an upgrade already in summer 2018. I chose this machine for its sanitize and allergen cycles and the vrt noise reduction tech. I like those features as well as the steam feature, unit size (can wash and dry king size down comforter) and the unique pleasant sounding sound alerts. I'm disappointed in the "smart care" not to be confused with "smart control" feature, the cycle save button which I have not used once, the delay end feature which the timing is not accurate and thus when I get home after using it I'm stuck waiting for the cycle to end instead of showering and running errands after a 12hr work day. This product is marketed well but I'm finding spending a little more initially up front is worth the trouble of the investment.

Too many issues

Jaisquared 7/17/2018

My first one had to be replaced because it was so messed up that it shock my entire house and felt like we were in a tornado. It was so bad that we had to replace it, there was no fixing it. The second one they replaced with it, none of the lights work!!! This is so frustrating.

Great Washer!

GXXR 6/21/2018

I can't say enough about this washer. It does everything you would need and more. Very efficient and as long as you don't overload it, washes very well. Would definitely recommend to others.
