Samsung Fields Redesigned Front- & Top-Load Washers
Samsung has introduced a line of fully redesigned front-load and top-load washers and dryers that it says capitalize on the latest interior design trends calling for a blending of various colors and textures with cutting-edge laundry technologies.
Samsung’s new Champagne stainless steel finish is one result of the company’s re-imagining of the laundry room. But beyond their new look, the washers are said to offer increased capacity and cleaning performance. With new Super Speed cycles, a load of laundry can be completed is as little as 30 minutes without sacrificing cleaning performance, Samsung says.
Families can receive end-of-cycle notifications on smartphones, on Samsung TVs or on Samsung Family Hub refrigerators. They can also remotely start and monitor their washer and dryer and receive cycle recommendations based on the loads they are washing.
The new Samsung front-load design makes the appliance suitable for pedestal placement or for stacking, and features a repositioned, slimmer control panel and 2.7-inch narrower depth, freeing up more real estate in the laundry room without sacrificing load capacity.
Like the front-load washers, the new top-load line is fully redesigned with new controls. Top-load washers feature a built-in water faucet for pre-treating clothing. An extra-large capacity – 5.0 cubic feet – tub design has been raised for easier loading and unloading.
Samsung’s new matching dryers automatically adjust cycle time and temperature to help protect clothing, while a new steam features smoothes away wrinkles and removes static.
Designer colors are available across the line. Besides being available in Champagne, Samsung’s WF6300 front-load washer and matching DV6300 dryer are available in Black Stainless Steel and White. The WF6100 front-load washer and DV6100 matching dryer are available in Champagne and White. The WA5400 top-load washer and DV5400 matching dryer are available in Black Stainless Steel and White. And the WA5200 top-load washer and DV5200 dryer are available in White.
Pricing for the new appliances, which are assembled locally in Newberry, S.C., start at $799, and they are available at select retailers and on Samsung.com.
