Intro

Product Features

  • 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.*


    *Based on an 8lb load
  • 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.
  • 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.

                  I bought this on reading good reviews and really works great. The main feature I like ,when you put in wash programm on high speed rinse, you need not to use dryer for long time. Cloths almost dries . I like this product.

                  Comments about Samsung 4.2 Cu. Ft. Front Loading Washer - White:

                  I love the larger drum but I really miss the white cycle I had on my other machine. I also miss the towel washing feature. The white cycle really made a difference in how bright my whites were. I don't know if it is on other machines but I wish I had noticed that missing before purchasing this one. I also wish the more basic machines were in red. I am really missing that.

                    Comments about Samsung 4.2 Cu. Ft. Front Loading Washer - White:

                    I have not used this product yet; it was just installed an hour ago. I was unable to see the white one in store, but online, the door does not appear to be shiny chrome, it appears to be a more matte gray color, which is what I was hoping for. Now I will have to deal with smudges all of the time. It is also very big. I have the washer and dryer stacked. It sticks out far away from the wall, and I can't see the controls on the dryer because it is so high. The six-foot tall delivery guy could barely see it, so unless you are six feet tall, do not buy these if you plan on stacking them. Also, the song at the end of the dryer cycle is really long. I will look into whether or not I can shut that off.
