Comments about Samsung Top Loading 5.0 Cubic Foot Washer:
I've had front loads for years. Switched to this top load this year and I couldn't be happier with it. The only issue we have had is the load throws off kilter when I wash blankets or towels. However I have been impressed with my options for washing and how well my clothing comes out of the wash. I have used the top sink on it multiple times with stains, etc and all my clothes come out stain free after I do.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

WEIGHT OF LOAD DETERMINES IF WATER SPINS OUT
from Youngstown, OH, USA
I had a 5'2" friend do the very first load by herself. She told me that she had to "dive" into the tub to get the clothes that were in the bottom of the tub. I chuckled because she is so short. I am 5'11" and was sure I wouldn't have any problems. BUT...I did. Even I have to stand on my tiptoes to reach the very bottom for a sock with my outstretched fingers. Also, I don't like how the cup for liquid bleach is placed. It's angled. So when you pour the bleach in, you have to be very careful or it ends up overflowing toward the inside. I'm afraid it's going to overflow to the inside of the tub and directly onto my clothes! Also, the tub is EXTREMELY big (which I wanted specifically so I could easily wash queen/king size quilts and comforters). However, I put in 1 queen size sheet set, a queen size mattress pad, and 1 medium blanket. By that I mean that it wasn't a light blanket, but not extremely thick and heavy. After everything was in, the tub was 1/2-3/4 full. It started and washed fine. But I had a hard time hearing the "alert tone" in my basement. And when I went to check, it showed there was still time left. It was on the spin cycle but it had stopped. I tried to restart it but within seconds it stopped again. Apparently it was "off balance". Because when I tried it again, it knocked around a bit. So I rearranged everything and tried again. Again, it started and stopped within seconds. So I got down into it and could feel that the load was extremely heavy and wet. So I removed the sheet set and rearranged the blanket and mattress pad and tried again. That was enough to allow the machine to complete the spin cycle. I also do not like the inner "sink". I don't like how you have to lift it and dump the detergents and dirty water you've used, directly into the washer. I just wish it weren't there. I think the value would certainly be worth it if it could wash and spin a full load. I haven't had enough to make a full load of clothes yet. But I'm wondering if it will be able to handle it since the load I did wash was about half of it's capacity, and it couldn't spin all of the water out. I specifically did not put in a full load because I knew one blanket would be heavy when wet. My problem is...if the huge tub isn't nearly full, why doesn't the machine have enough power to spin the water out of whatever is in it? It "should' spin when it's completely loaded. But when a huge washing machine like this can not spin because of one blanket, or like in my case...the sheet set added just enough weight to be too much for it, then what's the point in buying a huge washer? Boo!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
I love this washer
I bought the washer and dryer the reviews are off the charts a must have
from Twin Cities, MN
Large drum and so many wash settings! I like the fabric softener setting that does an extra rinse and love the self cleaning mode!
Research paid off!
from Missouri, USA
I must have done 2-3 weeks of research trying to find the best of the best and it has paid off! They are sleek, quiet, efficient, economically manageable, and cut down on the number of loads and hours spent washing a family of 7's laundry. With many wash cycles to choose from, the digital display is easy to navigate. Although I have not had to use the soaking basin yet, I am almost encouraging the children to get a grass stain just to try it out!
Excellent So Far
Have only had it in operation for a week but so far meets all of our expectations. Tub is huge. Controls are well marked and easy to use.
Washer and Dryer Model 8600
After much research, we decided to go with this model of washer and dryer. Other brands we have tried have not met our needs. We are able to wash and dry big loads such as blankets, as well as heavy, wet clothing straight from the farm. Both inside tubs are easy to reach. I was impressed with the mini-tub in the washer to allow clothes to soak or hand wash...So far, I am very pleased with this purchase!

One Month with normal use
This washer performs as advertised. Fast and efficient. Quiet and clothes are clean. Vast improvement over 10 year old front load machine. Touch controls work well. Very deep drum, can offer difficulty to reach articles in bottom for some people. Great product. Hope it holds up and stands test of time.
