Leaves Dirt in Drum

By Jules503

from Portland, OR, USA

Pros

    Cons

    • leaves dirt build-up

    Best Uses

      Comments about Samsung 5.2 CuFt Top Load Washer:

      Every heavy duty load I have done leaves dirt built up in the drum and subsequently on any clothing that was spun up against it. Literally, you can wipe your fingers along the inside of the drum and they'll come out with dirt on them. I have tried the Aqua Jet feature, have chosen the "Heavy Duty" cycle and the "Heavy Soil" setting, and even shook the clothing out, but quite honestly, one shouldn't have to do so much work just to get a washing machine to do the one thing it's designed to do: get clothing clean. My very old, basic machine didn't require any kind of pretreat before a heavy soil load. And it certainly didn't leave dirt build up in the drum after such a cycle. I *think* I have identified the issue: there are no holes in the beveled part of the drum where all the dirt is building up. I even tried the recently released edition of this model and it has the same issues with the same drum design.

      Love the washer but having loud lid issue

        Comments about Samsung 5.2 CuFt Top Load Washer:

        I thought I had done my research and was getting one of the better washer and dryer season the market... as per all the reviews I had read. The design is absolutely beautiful. I love the dash board with so many choices. However....once my washer arrived and I was giving it the test run I encountered a horrible popping noise with the lid. When I would lift the lid to remove the clothes it would make a loud noise and the same noise would be present when I had lifted the lid completely open. The noise is coming from the right side hinge of the lid. I was able to replace the washer for another one within a week. I' m thinking that this is a one time lemon washer. Unfortunately and once again after the second load of wash with the replaced washer, the exact same issue has now occurred. I am not happy with this and I have no doubt that others have had the same issue. I could not possible have such bad luck! How can Samsung engineer such a beautiful machine and have such a horrible problem with the lid. Unless this issue is resolved, I DO NOT recommend this washer.

        Worst appliance I have ever owned

            Comments about Samsung 5.2 CuFt Top Load Washer:

            For reference, my baseline is a 1988 whirl washer that still works. We moved to a new home, left the old reliable appliances behind, and used a magazine recommendation to purchase a new washer & dryer. I am now a servant to this sensitive washer. It is never happy with the balance, griefs with some error code that is not in the book, and requires me to stand over it, trying to peer into the dark tub filling with water from various angles, and pray that it will wash a load of clothes without grief. I read the manual, and carefully fold, arrange, place clothes so that they are as balanced as possible. The washer starts, violently tosses my arrangement around, and then cries that it is unbalanced. I can't go and start another project, because I have to stand there and see if the washer is happy enough to proceed through phase 1. I pause the washer, rearrange the clothing that is now wet and heavy, and see if that makes the washer happy. Then, I have to come back over and over again, to see if it is spinning, rinsing, etc. If not, I have to repeat this process. I don't know what it does with the original detergent, or if I have to add more every time it drains, adds more water, griefs. After today's drama, I'm checking product return policies, and may just donate the darn thing and buy something else.

                  Comments about Samsung 5.2 CuFt Top Load Washer:

                  I've received 2 of these machines now, the first I received the delivery timing was odd and neither of us had a moment to witness the un-boxing and install. After install of the initial machine; I noticed a spotted turn knob, crookedly attached serial number sticker (on the inside lid) and a HANDWRITTEN (number/letter) notation on the bottom of the laundry detergent insert, similar to contractor notes for big project installs. I returned that one as it did not appear to be new. Took delivery of a brand new washer today, and watched the entire un-boxing of the new washer. The dial, lid, and display were all appropriately covered by plastic film, opened the lid and to my displeasure; the serial number is affixed as crooked as the first. The real clincher was removing the liquid detergent insert tray to see a HANDWRITTEN notation; yet again! **** What the heck Samsung!!! **** We purchased this to replace the recalled machine. This one better last without recalls and if there are recalls, I hope Samsung is required to give everyone a full refund. I personally have not had a problem with my Samsung washer. The inside cover at the bottom of the drum did come out about a year after use and I could not get it re-attached - but to no determent of our laundry. I received this washer today and did a load of towels on the steam cycle and my shower towel came out feeling especially fluffy and soft. I hope it cleans as well, if not better, than the recalled model. I just wish there was better attention to the small details. As an aside; the liquid laundry detergent insert tray in my recalled washer did not have a speck of handwriting on it. I find this to be a very strange anomaly. Why Samsung, why!?!

                    Comments about Samsung 5.2 CuFt Top Load Washer:

                    I purchased this machine twice, end of 2015 and again most recently, 11/9/2016. My first experience was, it's the best machine I have ever used. It washed things well, with a small amount of water, rinsed at a high speed, rendering the wash almost dry once the cycle was complete. It's important to me to clean sheets on a thorough cycle with hot water, in order to kill dust mites. Imagine my surprise when it became part of the recall! Since machine #1 is slightly greater than a year old, we elected to have it replaced with the same machine, but obviously expecting corrections would have been addressed, to not only prevent the lid from becoming a flying saucer, but the original hi-speed the free-flying drum and lid. And I went to the store today and found that the new model now recommends bedding be washed on a gentle cycle. Hmmmmm...... what happened to the hi-powered washer that is advertised? Here's the description 1/12/2017: activewash™ - Pretreat Clothes with Built-in Sink & Water Jet Super Speed - Up to 40% Faster Wash Cycle* Saves You Time and Effort AND VRT - vibration reduction technology. AND YET, you need to wash bedding on the delicate cycle. I guess I've been doing laundry incorrectly all these years.

                        We bought this Washer because of the features, mainly a top load washer, steam, built in sink, and the stylish platinum finish. This machine does an excellent job on all jobs from lightly to heavily soiled. The washer and matching dryer are extremely stylish and are gorgeous.
