Rated 5 out of 5 by from great machine! We've had our washer & dryer for about 6 weeks and LOVE them so far. They're very roomy, so we're able to fit lots of laundry in each load-- and that saves a lot of time. I'm still figuring out how to get the most out of the machine (it's much "smarter" than the budget models I've had in rental apartments) but I have no complaints about the performance. My clothes are always super clean and the machine seems to be fairly gentle on clothing. I had a plumbing issue in my house (due to the house, not the washing machine); the washing machine wasn't able to drain properly and the drum filled up with 1.5 gallons of water. I called Samsung and a representative walked me through the process of draining it-- it was through a little tube hidden in a front panel of the machine-- and recalibrating machine. It was totally top-notch service. One word of caution: When stacked, the buttons on the top machine are hard to reach. Both my partner and I need to stand on a step stool to use it. We don't mind because the washer and dryer work so well, but it's worth noting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WF42H5000AW/A2 I began by looking into a new washer, my search started with finding out what as of today was the best washer would be. And with the so many benefits of an H/E Front Load Washer, over a h/e top loader and a regular top loader. My choice for a front loader took off. Samsung offered the best features and reputation in the industry, not only for electronics, but now added to my list appliances. I am extremely happy with my purchase. This washer is fantastic. My clothes have never been washed this before and now i am very happy, i made the best choice. I have all Pro's for this washer, and absolutely No con's. I was blown away by the annual usage tag shipped with the washer, Huge Savings are coming my way this year and the ones to follow. Less water used, clothes come out cleaner and dryer, so less time spent drying my clothes, more savings in my pocket, once i dry my clothes. Thank You Samsung.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Washer Love this washer. Low water usage, but it does take longer to do a load of wash than with the top loaders. But it is so worth the extra time spent. The clothes have come out really nice. This was worth my money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love My new Washer This is my 2nd front load washing machine after we experienced a code problem with the first one that the repair man could not fix. Simply stated that there was no fix for it. We had spent a nice sum for it since we purchased it when the machines were relatively new on the market. This time I did a substantial amount of reviewing and talking to other Samsung product owners. They all were pleased and satisfied with their washers and even those with top loaders. I have always trusted Samsung with electronics and I decided to take a chance. I figured the new washers are electronic and who would I trust more. I am so glad that I did! We are so pleased with the quietness of the machine and the super fast spin making my clothes almost dry on some cycles. I love the options to change the spin and did not have a permanent press or bedding option before( can't wait to try it).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Washer from Samsung Replaces Samsung Top load fom Voluntary Recall I applaud Samsung for voluntarily recalling Top Load Washing machines. The rebate is reasonable. I bought another Samsung Washer because this model received good reviews and I got a additional $150 back if I bought a Samsung. I bought a Front Load Model this time. So far seems to work well and is much quieter than the top loader ever was. I hope that Samsung appreciates a second chance on my list of products I trust. Keep on the task -by improving products, voluntary recalls, rebates that are fair to all and responding to customer complaints courteously.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far a great washer We have been using this washer for about a month and so far it has met all expectations. We use pods so we don't use the dispensers and everything has been great - clothes very clean. We also use it to wash horse laundry and it is better than our last more expensive model. Like the idea of not having so many choices in cycles. I have found that most of those don't work well anyway. This is more a basic model and it does very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Full function, excellent price for this washer All I can say is how good it washes, all kinds of things. Pillows, large blankets, small loads and normal. The functions have it all. Don't have to go through the entire cycle to get spin only, rinse only, etc. I was surprised the door is not convertible to open from either side. Don't know if you can specify direction when you order it. But all-in-all I am very satisfied and recommend it even for the high end consumer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great buy I bought this to replace a 6 yr old front load washer. Wasn't going to replace with front loader but already had the pedestals and the price was so good, I decided to give them one more try. Much happier with this one. Guess in the 6 yrs they've worked out some kinks....much quieter.

Asked by: PERAGUI
Yes, but it would be very high. It would be nice if the washer had the controls on the bottom, in order to reach them when stacked.
