I can’t tell you how excited I was when I was given the opportunity to review the new Samsung ActiveWash washer and dryer from Best Buy! I had my previous washer for longer than I could really remember and it was starting to have little fits here and there on me. I knew any day that it would just conk out on me. We had recently done a major remodel on our kitchen and had purchased a new Samsung refrigerator that we immediately fell in love with…so I knew that Samsung was the brand that I would be replacing my appliances with in the future.
Samsung ActiveWash Washer
The first thing I noticed about this washer was the very large capacity washer. This drum is so deep that it allows you to wash up to 3 laundry baskets of clothes in one load. In fact, when I wash smaller items, I have to get a pair of tongs to reach them. I do not kid! This feature is fantastic for washing large comforters or knocking out several days or a weeks worth of wash in one setting. What a time saver! The Swirl Drum also has a unique design with small holes to help prevent your delicate clothes from getting caught and damaged.
Here in Southern California, many of us live in ranch style homes built in the 50s and 60s that don’t tend to have a lot of space. We had moved our laundry area out to our garage many years ago to enlarge our kitchen and so I do not really have a “laundry room” with a nice sink. That makes it very hard to pre-treat stains without taking my laundry into the kitchen or the bathroom to access a sink with running water. I don’t have to worry about that now because the Samsung ActiveWash Washer has a dedicated sink and water jet which provides a convenient and unique space to hand-wash delicate items and pre-wash heavily soiled clothes. I can see that this is one feature I will be frequently taking advantage of.
One of the first things my husband mentioned to me was how incredibly quiet this washer is. The VRT™ (Vibration Reduction Technology) reduces noise and vibration during washes, even in high-spin speeds with heavy loads. For those of you with your laundry room close to where your children nap or you watch TV, this is a BIG plus.
The Samsung ActiveWash Washer is all about sanitizing and cleanliness too! It has a Steam Wash cycle that releases steam from the bottom of the laundry tub, saturating every item in the load and leading to an even deeper clean. An internal heater helps keep your water temp exactly where you need it and a sanitize cycle works to eliminate up to 99% of bacteria in each laundry load. The Aquajet feature forces out dirty water as clean water pours in to deliver a better, cleaner wash. In addition to all of that, the Self Clean technology keeps this baby fresh without the use of harsh chemicals and also sends you reminders to clean the tub every 40 wash cycles.
This washer has 15 different washing cycles that are designed to tackle just about anything you throw at it. I have not had a chance to use all 15 cycles yet but I can tell you that I certainly will over the course of the next few weeks. Right now I am loving the Super Speed cycle for the smaller, lightly soiled loads. It is in and out in under 36 mintues!
Samsung 7.4 cu. ft Large Capacity (Electric) Front Load Dryer
Not to be outdone by the awesome Samsung ActiveWash Washer, this dryer is also very large and has many exciting features! 7.4 cu. ft speaks for itself as far as handling large loads and saving you time and effort. It also has 15 drying cycles which includes refresh, heavy duty, steam sanitize, wrinkle away, perm press, delicates and bedding, which makes it easy to give each fabric type the right care. I love, love, love the fact that it has a Vent Sensor that detects any problems with your vent and shuts down in the event of a clogged vent to prevent potential fires. This dryer also features a reversible door to accommodate your laundry space and a moisture sensor to ensure that your clothes are dried to perfection.
There are two specific features to this dryer that really excites me (yes, I do get excited over laundry)! The Multi-Steam Technology allows you to reduce and remove wrinkles, odors, bacteria and static with just a simple hook-up to your existing water supply for your washer. No water reservoir to fill up and you can steam away your wrinkles and spend less time ironing and take fewer clothes to the dry cleaners. The Steam Dry cycles include; Refresh, Wrinkle Away and Steam Sanitize. I can see this really coming in handy when you have limited time to iron something you need to wear to work in the morning.
I am also in love with the Dryer Rack. The dryer rack is easily installed (even I can do it) and allows you to dry sneakers, sweaters and even stuffed animals without ruining them with the tumbling. How cool is that!?!
For those of us that love saving money and the environment, I must mention that Samsung’s patented Eco Dry technology can save up to $4,500 over the lifetime of the washer and dryer. With up to 25% less energy use on every load, Eco Dry offers superior drying power while saving money in the long run. Samsung also offers Smart Care (something my husband was really impressed with) on both the washer and dryer which is quick diagnosis of your washer right from your smart phone allowing convenient and easy access to trouble shooting options.
I truly am in love with this Samsung ActiveWash Laundry Pair from Best Buy. They have so many great features that will save me time and money. Thank you Best Buy for this amazing opportunity to review these Samsung products and help me to #mastermyhome!
