How to Choose the Right Samsung Fully Automatic Washing Machine for Your Home?
Updated on July 15, 2021 | by Austin
With a myriad of fully automatic washing machine models being launched every year, it can get overwhelming — and almost impossible to narrow it down to just a few options. Furthermore, Samsung is one of the leading washing machine brands in the country and offers a wide range of fully automatic washing machine models. If you are thinking about purchasing a new washing machine, but do not know where to begin, here is a handy guide, packed with tips and tricks about how you can choose the ideal washing machine for your household.
Before choosing your dream washing machine, it is important to understand the different types of fully automatic washing machines. Buying Samsung washing machines comes in two avatars, namely, top loading and front loading washing machines.
As the name suggests, with this kind of appliance, you will have to load clothes into the washing machine from the top. It saves you from having to bend your back to load the clothes into the drum. It is considered to be a more economical investment because, in most cases, these washing machines come with fewer wash programs while delivering sparkling garments. Thus, these are cheaper than front-loading washing machines. However, top-load washers are a little bulkier in design as compared to front-loading models, and therefore may take up more space in a room.
Front-loading washing machines have their drum placed in front of the appliance. Although it does require you to bend to load garments into the appliance, it is more convenient because of its provision of several wash programs. These models also conserve more water and energy as compared to top-load washing machines. If you are looking for advanced wash features that cater to every fabric type you load into the machine, then this is the appliance for your household.

Understanding how much of a load can be fitted into your Samsung fully automatic washing machine is imperative before purchasing the appliance. Bulky washing machines do not necessarily cater to holding larger load capacities. Capacity is usually measured in kilograms (kgs) and it directly correlates to the number of family members or apartment sharers that utilize this machine. Although some washing machines can handle a greater weight load, they might need to be run again to properly get rid of tough stains on certain clothing. The capacity that we account for here refers to how many garments can be loaded into the washing machine, and are thoroughly cleaned in just one wash cycle.
A general rule of thumb to follow is that for just one to two individuals, a load capacity of 6 kg is necessary. This breaks down to two shirts, jeans, pillowcases, small towels, and one bedsheet. In contrast, for more than five individuals, it is recommended to invest in a washing machine with a load capacity of up to 9 kgs. In other words, this accounts for two bedsheets, three jeans and shirts, and six small towels and pillowcases.
3. Drum Quality
Although not much heed is paid to the material of a washing machine drum, it is important to know about the washer drum, as different drums cater to different wash quality outcomes. Samsung’s diamond drum is reputed for smoother wash cycles because of the integrated deep holes. This, in turn, reduces the wear and tear of clothes during repeated wash cycles. Samsung washing machine prices differ depending on the material of the drum as well. Stainless steel drums, for instance, are more expensive because of their durable nature and resistance to rust, as opposed to plastic drums. Plastic drums, on the other hand, are easier to clean, handle, and are lighter. Consumers usually opt to purchase washing machines with plastic drums for their low maintenance, but they are not very durable (from a long-term point of view).
4. Child Lock
Most Samsung fully automatic washing machines nowadays come with this feature but it is still crucial enough to note it down here. A child lock facility refers to either a lock on the door handle of the appliance or a setting that does not permit you to change it once it has started. If you live with a child, finding an appliance that has a door lock while concurrently catering to power fluctuations, whereby the washing machine does not need to start over after a power outage (with the door unlocked) is a recommended investment.
5. Temperature Settings
Most Samsung fully automatic washing machines come with different temperature controls so that your different garments are given the attention they require, to get rid of tough stains. Clothes that are soiled require higher temperatures to get cleaned thoroughly. Although owning a conventional washing machine with a 30-degree setting is sufficient to wash clothes, having varying temperature settings makes life a little less tedious, and reduces your need to scrub clothes manually before loading them into the appliance.
