It's width is 600mm which is standard size, Some washers are slightly slimmer spec but 600mm is normal.
Good price, but Curry's were selling this for £329 not long ago on their eBay account.

Not knocking the deal, just making people aware
UK White goods verdict on Samsung:

"Samsung are not renowned for innovation in the white goods industry choosing to compete on price with what seems uninspiring products.

Like LG (another Korean company) in the appliance market they seem to come up with marketing hype and little support for the claims, often a lot of the "features" tend to be very much gimmicks that are scrapped and replaced with a new sales gimmick for the next range. We've had silver-nano, eco-bubble, VRT, steam, diamond drums and goodness knows what else but, in the the end, very few of these features survive a single generation of washing machines. Mostly because they're not much good.

Besides this in washers about the only things of note is the move towards higher load capacity machines and the high use of LED lights and displays to appeal to a younger, more technology savvy customer.

Samsung Market Position
Samsung seems to sit in the middle of the price pecking order with some products commanding a higher premium than others with its washing machine and tumble dryer range.


Quality has proven to be an issue across most of the major appliances for Samsung, they are a good company on electronics but cannot be said to have carried that level of quality across to their large domestic appliances. Asides from the repeated and, well publicised issues with Samsung fridge freezers, the washing machines and cooking products are not especially highly rated by the engineers in terms of either reliability or durability.

And, like LG, Samsung appears to use gimmicks to sell products in many cases.

A good example of this is the push toward connected appliances in an attempt to merge the electronics business with domestic appliances, the Internet of Things as it were. Trouble is, buyers seem not too bothered by this as it is costly and doesn't really offer any tangible advantages, especailly so when all you get is a tablet type affair stuck onto a fridge or washing machine to control it.

There has also been much critisism by owners of Samsung smart appliances over support being dropped for services on the products, especially in the USA as alledgedly by Google Samsung have failed to provide firmware updates. How true the latter is we don't know but we have seen people rounding on Samsung for lack of ongoing support as well as much critisism of Samsung's security so we can't help but tell people to avoid these connected appliances for the time being.

It would probably prove beneficial to look at alternatives from the more traditional appliance manufacturers such as Bosch, Electrolux, Zanussi, AEG, LG and so on as a good alternative that will have far more experience in major appliances and will quite likely prove to be cheaper to buy and own"

Bearing in mind the principle of AddWash works at certain parts of the wash cycle only, it's hardly any different to pausing and opening the whole drum door.

Personally for the same money the LG at £399 is a better buy as it benefits from the patented direct drive inverter motor, metal door hinges, a spin-only cycle option, better aesthetics and above all a better reliability and longevity track record well beyond the 5 year warranty.
I dont know about other washing machines,
but just 2 year warranty.

You can claim an additional 3 year warranty for free from Samsung just by registering it.

I don't listen to anyone who slates LG machines. Mine is fantastic, the direct drive motor is brilliant and it washes great. My mother had an AEG machine for 4 years after recommendation from a washing machine repair man she new as he said they have very little issues. I think he was drumming up business because in that time it broke down 3 times. She has now had her LG machine 3 years and in that time not a single issue. This is one of the reasons I went for an LG. That and the fact that any machine using the old 1960s belt driven motor is just not worth spending money on when there is direct drive motors out there now.
Using Samsung for last 8years no issues whatsoever. Also the fact Samsung is offering 5years warranty shows how much company believes in it.
LG may be good as well but won't believe a word of any blog, review where they name and suggest rival manufacture is actually better. It is not uncommon to slant rivals.

Well this is what the same source has to say on LG:

"As with most new entrants to the UK market LG (Goldstar at the time) started off at the lower end of the price band and with marketing and brand building have slowly come to place themselves firmly in the middle segment of the washing machine and fridge freezer market. Having said that LG's American styled fridge freezers do tend to be extremely competitive on price and operate in the lower portion of that segment.

Recent attempts have been made to move the washing machines into the upper market segment to compete with Neff, Meile and Siemens by using new features and designer paint finishes such as the Steam Direct which is slated to retail around £950. Whether the washing machines are worth that amount is open to debate given that the internals can be largely the same as lower specification models, it is only the additional features that appear to be used as justification for the higher pricing.

It is fair to say that, compared with LG's arch rival, Samsung, that LG appear to be of a higher quality and LG have thus far stayed away from cutting costs to the same extent and lowering the quality accordingly making them, from a quality and durability point of view, a better buy. Although on washing machines especially we would often question the large capacity ratings that are used as we have noted that some seem inaccurate and we would question the value of some of the features that are touted by LG.

If you are looking at the more top end models you would be well advised to also consider paying a little more and getting a far better washing machine from either ISE or Miele. Or, if you are spending less then Bosch or many of the Electrolux products would be good alternatives.

Compared to other appliances in the same mid market sector in which LG falls into, the products seem of a reasonable quality and represent a fairly good buy for people as a general"

This model has a digital inverter direct drive motor with a 10 year warranty on the motor, a spin only option and also 5 year parts and labour warranty on everything else.
After having a few different brands of washing machines over the last few years I have recently bought the 8kg version of this washer and it is excellent. Can't really see that it is gimmicky apart from the sounds and the tune it plays when the cycle is done, however that can be turned off. Everything else is a useful feature. Seems a very biased review against Korean electronic companies tbh.
Good price. I bought one last year with £499

I have been an LG fan since their washing machines arrived on our UK shores nearly 20 years ago.

At the time, they were light years ahead of the competition in terms of both technology and build quality and gave their more expensive rivals a run for their money.

Nowadays the competition is playing catch up with inverter motors, large drum sizes and electronic controls with dedicated on/off and start buttons etc, but take a closer look and much of the competition still lags behind on build quality and reliability.

One of LG's greatest advantages is that across the entire range from entry level to high end, many of their internals e.g. inverter motor, electronic fascia, drum door and much of the bodywork and components are the same. Generally you are paying more for a larger drum size capacity, extra features, such as Truesteam and Turbowash and cosmetic enhancements, such as metallic trim and illuminated buttons etc.

For me, the sweet spot is the next step above entry level i.e. the £399 ballpark where you get a decent size drum (9 KG), a better quality finish and a few extra useful features. You have everything you need in a well built and reliable product that will last in most cases a decade or so. I can't think of a better value proposition than this.

What source is this?
Had mine for 3 years... it's given up and details not registered correctly... no service plans.. can only offer phone number of a local service guy...
My daughter is disabled and spent allot of money on my eco bubble with a large drum... due to washing stuff every other day... wish I'd just brought 3 cheaper machines now... or a shopping with its never ending monthly service plan !
Seems most issues are created at the point of sale. Modern machines are increasing in capacity and salesmen want to sell you what makes them the most profit, or the brands that they are affiliated with. I have LG machines which have lasted well, but only because I have fitted and maintained them as they need to be. All types go wrong. Samsung do have a knack with the gimmicks. Just check out the tablet fitted fridges. LG direct drive motors also go wrong but mainly due to sensor issues, plus bigger machines can vibrate themselves to bits if not installed on a solid floor (concrete not suspended - check manuals). In my experience of fixing machines and dependent on who your warranty is through, LG has basic support but Samsung UK tech support will push their support engineers to resolve problems as quickly as possible.

Fabulous washing machine in every way.
I just don’t get this “addwash” feature.

If you dropped a sock just as you start the wash - cancel the cycle, pop it in, start again.

If you find something later on it’s not worth it either way as half the cycle had elapsed so it won’t be washed properly.

It just just seems like something that fixes a problem we often imagine is a big issue when in reality it’s just not. And certainly not worth paying a lot more for. I guess most inventions these days fall into that bracket...

Exactly. Many modern washers e.g. LG enable you to pause the wash, unlock the door, add the item and lock the door again during most stages of the wash cycle.

Even AddWash comes with the same wash cycle restrictions and if anything is more restrictive because of the size of the opening.

Furthermore, there are reports of socks etc. getting caught in the opening mechanism and therefore not drying during the spin cycle.

Finally, it affects the aesthetics of the drum door.

IMHO not worth paying extra for this feature due to the above reasons and without any real tangible benefit.

Warning to anyone looking at buying a samsung addwash machine.. I own the "smart" version of this machine having changed from my lg steam washer.. And ive regretted it ever since. These are a gimmicky waste of time! The addwash cannot be used unless the machine is paused mid cycle (at which point the main door then unlocks thus completely defeating the point of the addwash door as you can just open the main door and throw stuff in rather than fiddle with the little addwash door). Its noisier than my lg was and the standard programs are not as good (59 minute quick wash cycle compared to 30 on the lg and the lg cycles were adjustable with add ons the quick washes on the samsungs are not i.e you cant increase the spin speed from 800 to 1400, the programs are fixed for quick wash and the main programs are over 2 1/2 hours long). Ive also since seen numerous videos on the internet of the drums failing as the metal used on the Samsungs are of poor quality and snap on the back of the drum. Not sure if the newest models are made with better materials? Time will tell.

Oh look the troll is back? All over me pointing out an issue with one of your deals.. Remind me.. Weren't your last few comments towards me (insulting and designed to offend) removed by admin??

The previous post was me sharing my machine when it was on offer after i had bought it. Everything i said then was true in reply to someone intimating that the machine had no quick wash and the cycles were over 3 hours long. I told the truth then as i am now..

Now ive had and lived with this machine for several months ive realsied it has a lot of faults and i am pointing this out to help other members as i made a mistake buying one of these following assumptions over the addwash feature.

Feel free to screenshot all of the comments in the month old thread please rather than snapshotting and trolling me. Gfy (good for you) for the effort tho.
