Samsung - Activewash 5.0 Cu. Ft. 12-Cycle Top-Loading Washer - Black Stainless Steel Model: WA50K8600AV Let me start by saying my wife loves this washer and the matching dryer. This is a large capacity high efficiency washer with 12 cycles, there is no agitator and you must use detergent designed for high efficiency washers. These soaps have been formulated to produce less suds and we discovered that most laundry detergents now meet this requirement, look on the detergent container for the “HE� label. You can choose a cycle from the selection of 12 or you can customize your own cycle and save it as “My Cycle,� the next time you want to use your custom cycle simply press the “My Cycle� button. The control panel sits almost flat towards the back of the machine, no big bulky timer knob, simply small electronic touch buttons, no need to press on them, just lay your finger on the switch to select the function. Due to their positioning I was a bit concerned it might be difficult to see and identify the buttons and labels but they are actually very visible. There is also a display that gives you an estimate of how much longer the load will be running, this didn’t sound all that impressive but we actually find it very useful. When the washer completes a load of clothes it turns the power completely off, to start the next load you must first press the power button, then select your options and when you are ready press the start/pause button for 3 seconds. The washer has a built-in sink with a scrub basin that the wife was not sure she wanted, she seldom does hand washing but she has discovered this is actually a very nice feature. Works great for placing shirts on it to spray the collars or if you want to hand scrub something place it in the sink, press the switch on the left hand side to add water, complete your scrubbing and then lift the built-in sink, the water and the item fall out the back directly into the washer, nicely designed. When you begin the wash cycle the lid locks closed, if you then decide you want to add something you simply press the start/pause button, the washer will pause and the lid will unlock, add your item, close the lid and press start/pause button. During the wash cycle it swishes the clothes back and forth without the use of an agitator. We know they are swishing because we can see the action via the tinted window in the lid. I don't know this as a fact but I believe not having an agitator has multiple benefits, your clothes won't wear as quickly due to rubbing on the agitator nor will they get wrapped around it causing your wash loads to be out of balance. Speaking of balance, I don’t fully understand how it works but this washer automatically balances the load. We loaded it up with a bunch of rugs that would have given our old washer major balance problems and this washer ran quiet and kept the load in balance. It offers a number of spin speeds and I can tell you it does a really good job of spinning the water out of the clothes. I guess the most important part of a washer is do the clothes come out clean. We have not had any really nasty loads of clothes to throw at it but everything we have washed from shirts to whites have been great. Depending on your height and the length of your arms getting your clothes out of the washer can be a challenge, my wife it 5’5� and she can barely reach the bottom of the washer. Our previous washer was 23 inches deep from the top of the washer to the bottom of the tub, the new washer is 29 inches deep. The washer even has a self clean mode, according to the directions every month or so the self clean LED will light and you should run the washer in self clean mode, it is designed to remove mold and dirt that might be trapped or growing in the machine. This washer is really quiet, our old washer made so much noise when it was running we had to keep the laundry room door closed, with this washer we can leave the door open and we never hear it. There is a button to turn a chime melody on that plays when the load is complete, unfortunately the volume is so low you can’t hear it in another room. Very nice feature but really needs to be louder. While not being important to the actual performance of the machines my wife also loves the appearance. In the past we have had a limited amount of stainless items and have never been impressed but the black stainless steel look is terrific. The finish on these appliances is spectacular, it is almost a shame to hide them away in a laundry room. The rest of the design is also very appealing. The lid opens from the front to the back, if you happen to have a shelf or a cabinet above the washer you might have a clearance issue. With the lid open the washer is about 60 inches tall, the lid hit my cabinet but I was able to slide the washer far enough forward that it no longer reached the cabinet. Every time my wife has used her new washer and dryer she has told me how much she likes them. Very happy wife. Pros: Beautiful Control panel is wonderful, easy to read and informative Very quiet Self balancing Built-in sink / wash tub Wife is happy Cons: Tub might be too deep for shorter people Chime not loud enough

WEIGHT OF LOAD DETERMINES IF WATER SPINS OUT

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!

      This washing machine is nice. It works great and I haven't had any issues with it yet except for the recall, which has been a little frustrating to say the least. I think once someone finally comes out to fix the recall and I an able to use the washing machine to its fullest capabilities it will be a very pleasing product.

                  WASHER HAS GOOD FEATURES BUT COULD USE BETTER DESIGN. IT SEEMS TO WASH GOOD BUT THE TOP COVER MIGHT BE A POTENTIAL TOOL TO BREAK THE TRAYS WHERE THE SOUP AND SOFTER GOES. IF YOU DO NOT MAKE SURE YOU CLOSE/ PUSH IN THE TRAYS AND YOU CLOSE THE TOP, YOU MIGHT BREAK THE TRAYS. ALSO, THE WASHER IS DEEP AND THE CLOTHES IS HARD TO REACH. UNLESS YOU ARE TALL AND HAVE LONG LEGS AND ARMS, THE CLOTHES IS HARD TO REACH AFTER WASHER HAS FINISHED. OTHER THAN THAT...IT WORKS GREAT!!

                        It doesn't matter if I have a full load or a small load... I continue to get an error code halfway through a wash cycle that it has stopped because of an unbalanced load. I have to keep checking on the wash because it will just stop and leave everything soaking wet and I have to respond or restart the whole load over just to get my clothes washed. It's very frustrating and I end up using more water and soap just to get things washed
