This is an excellent front loader washer. I actually received it for a great value during a sale at a well known home improvement store. It was a hard decision between the larger capacity Whirlpool top loader or the Samsung front loader and I actually went back and forth a few times. I'm glad I stuck with this set. The color is a beautiful "neutral" blue that doesn't mess up my decor. Both the washer and dryer has ample settings for me to launder my clothes. They aren't twisted at the end of the cycle either. I can use the low spin setting, and my clothes will still dry in about 30 minutes...depending on how large the load is. The music at the end of the cycle is nice at first, but I just turn it off if I'm doing a load before bedtime or relaxation. However the washer is so quiet, that it's really hard to notice the load is complete without a bell or music.
This washer worked great for about a year. It stopped draining and wouldn't spin. Not only that, but when I called for service it was a 5 day wait for someone to come repair it and it cost a FORTUNE! I will NEVER purchase a Samsung home appliance EVER again!!
