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
  • SuperSpeed

    Samsung's breakthrough SuperSpeed technology provides a faster and more thorough wash cycle than any other washer on the market. Simply press the button to select SuperSpeed and save 40% more time on every cycle – without sacrificing cleaning performance. With SuperSpeed, you can quickly wash a full load in only 36 minutes.*

    *Normal one-hour wash can now be completed in as little as up to 36 minutes as compared to WF511 washer without SuperSpeed. Based on DOE standard’s average of 7.5 loads per week.
  • 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.
  • J.D. Power Customer Satisfaction Award

    Ranked "Highest in Customer Satisfaction with Front-Load Clothes Washers."* - J.D. Power
    This is the sixth consecutive year Samsung has received a customer satisfaction award for clothes washers.


    *Samsung received the highest numerical score for front-load clothes washers in the proprietary J.D. Power 2014 Laundry Appliance StudySM. Study based on 6,649 total responses measuring 10 front-load washer brands and measures opinions of consumers about their new appliance purchased in the past 24 months. Proprietary study results are based on experiences and perceptions of consumers surveyed in January-March 2014. Your experiences may vary. Visit .
  • NSF Certified Sanitize/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.
  • 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.
  • 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.*

    *Available for iPhone 4/4S/5/5S and Galaxy S1/S2/S3/S4/NOTE/NOTE2.
  • 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.

    We have had a previous Samsung Washer and it does not have near the options than this one has. It was easy to setup, and so far has done a great job.

            My wife loves her new washer. The color was a big factor at first for her as well as the brand. We got a great price and we enjoy the many features it offers. It washes great and leaves very little water in the clothes making for faster drying.

                            I purchased a Samsung Washer with an extended 3 year warrantee. Three years and 4 months later, the whole thing started shaking like it was unbalanced and wasn't wringing out the clothes. Then I found it was the spider arm that often breaks because of a design flaw. ALL SAMSUNG WASHERS HAVE THIS FLAW! If it makes it past the first three years, it will eventually break down due to this design flaw. Most of them break down before from what I found on the internet and talking with repair people all over CT. Parts are so expensive in most cases that people replace the machine. Huh! I just realized why they haven't addressed this issue. Buying a 1200. washer every three years is their objective! RUN

                                    The washer seems to perform really well. My only complaint is that the tub and door stay wet after washing a load and if you leave the door shut it stinks musty.
