Pros: Value for money, Easy to use, Good build quality, Quiet, looks good
"I bought this appliance to combine my old washing machine and tumble dryer in to my new kitchen. As Samsung had an offer on at the time letting me get a free telly if I bought enough of their stuff, I splashed out on this top-of-the-line model.
In all I've found it excellent. It washes my clothes very effectively, with my white shirts having never looked brigher. It does so easily without having complicated numbers on the dials.
The drum is HUGE and can easily take a weeks washing without much trouble. This is perfect for me as I work long hours and tend to do all my washing sporadically when I remember!
The drying function works very well, I've washed several loads including bedsheets on a full wash+dry run (this takes about 6 hours).
The "air dry" function is a bit of a gimmick and I'm yet to be in a situation where I really need to get some of my clothes smelling nice quickly! I tried it out on a shirt and it whirled it around for 30 minutes and it came out smelling rather neutral if that's a complement?!
Otherwise it's done a good job. I appreciate the easy self-clean option as well as the large display letting you know how long is left in the cycle. The "Delay End" is smart, so you can time your washing to finish at a certain time (rather than starting).
I've put a couple of wool cycles through with the appropriate detergent and found it effective at cleaning my various jumpers.
As others reviewers have mentioned it is deeper than other models, so measure carefully - especially if you have a tap at the back of your space. I'm in this unfortunate situation and am having to get a plumber out to move it all!
I think it looks fantastic. I have a "white free" kitchen - all my appliances are dark greys and blacks and I really like the way they blend in.
In all I'd recommend this model. I don't really know if it's value for money as it's the first washer/dryer I've ever bought, but it works well for me, has lots of music, bright lights and cheerful little tunes :)."
