Pet lovers will be happy with washing their bedding and rugs
By Tony “Flying Tiga” Sako
I had been looking for a large capacity front loading washer for a while and chose the Samsung 4.3 cu. ft. Front Load Washer with PowerFoam Technology Steam VRT Plus because of these qualities:
- one of the larger capacity washers offered at the time (this model is 4.3 cu. ft and the largest on the market appears to be 4.5 cu. ft)
- sanitizing cycle
- ratio of price to quality appeared favorable (I also considered the Whirlpool Duet, Electrolux, Bosch and LG models)
I already had owned a Frigidaire Gallery front loading machine for 10 years so I was accustomed to a washer not using as much water as conventional top loading machines, but it was quite small (barely 3.3 cu. ft, I think) and it had come to a point where I was tired of washing my bedding and rugs at a laundromat. In particular, what happened was that I rescued two cats and one of them, how shall I say this, is quite *picky* about the state of his litter box. So if the litter box is even marginally wet, he choses to do his business on a nearby bathroom rug. As a result, I needed a washer that could sanitize and wash odious male cat urine smells from my rugs. I find that since I purchased this larger capacity washer, I am more apt to wash my bedding more frequently, too, because it is more convenient than going to a laundromat and possibly even less expensive over the long term. Further, there are a plethora of cycles to choose from, including one called “eco cold.”
I would say I am relatively happy with the machine, but you might want to consider the following:
- The normal cycle is one hour long. My biggest issue is that the heavy duty, bedding and sanitizing cycles are very long – upwards of two hours.
- You cannot leave the finished wash in the machine for very long (less than 4 hours, I would say); otherwise, it will develop a mild mildew smell. I did not have this problem with my previous front loader. Coupled with the somewhat longer washing cycles, doing one load of laundry takes more planning to make sure that I will be there to transfer the wash to the dryer. Sometimes this means I have to re-wash the clothes to remove that mildew smell.
- This issue is somewhat alleviated by having a “quick wash” cycle – about 25 minutes.
- One downfall is that many of the wash cycles have commensurately pre-determined water temperature settings. Fortunately, the “quick wash” is hot wash/cold rinse. I would greatly prefer to determine what temperature in which to wash my clothes and interestingly, the normal cycle will not wash in hot water, but warm. Perhaps these settings are related to an energy efficiency rating. Hot water is not very environmentally friendly.
- Many front loading machines require that you keep the front door open. Although recommended, I don’t always remember to do this and I have not found that leaving the door closed between cycles has contributed to mildew odors in the interior.
- A few times the machine has stopped mid-cycle because my electrical plug was tripped. The solution is to reset the electrical plug. Again, this becomes an issue because the hot wash cycles can be quite long and can affect your scheduling because inevitably I don’t notice the machine isn’t on for a while.
- These washers are larger in dimensions than what you may have had in the same space. It might seem obvious if you are looking for a large capacity washer, but I didn’t actually measure the space in my laundry room prior to it’s installation and I was lucky that the space could accommodate the bulkier and taller profile. I did not buy the pedestals because I have a tendency to use the top of the appliances on which to store things.
I also bought the machine to wash my extra large cotton rugs (5 x 7) from IKEA. I haven’t yet done this yet as I think I need to contact the manufacturer to see how much weight the machine will hold (there is a weight sensing function at the beginning of every cycle). I am concerned about exceeding the recommendations because the machine will not open if it is compromised. This feature is relatively standard on most late model front loading machines and it is something to be aware of if you need to open the machine mid-cycle. This can usually be solved by pushing the “pause” button.
Overall, I would say this is a good appliance for the specific reasons that I outlined earlier and there is good reason to choose this model over others.

Huge time and money saver!!!
I rarely write reviews, but I had to comment on this machine! We bought the washer and matching dryer with the pedestals, and I have to say, these machines have saved us hundreds of dollars in water consumption. The old machine used 50 plus gallons for a super wash, and this machine uses 8 – 13 gallons for a wash load that is more than twice the size of our old washer! Also, our electric and gas bill went down, because the washer spins the water out of the clothes so efficiently that the dryer usually dries the load in less than an hour! The dryer even washes! I haven’t had to go to the dry cleaner since we got this machine. Another plus is you don’t need stain remover, the washer has a deep steam feature that gets out almost everything, and a pure cycle feature that cleans the washer to get out any residue after 40 washes with no need for chemicals or extra expense. The wash loads do take more time, but you are washing the equivalent of 2 wash loads in an average washer, in just one load in the wf511, so you are actually saving time, water and energy. It is amazing how much this machine washes, and how well with the help of its foam feature! Saying nothing for the sanitization feature, it is nice to know that my kid’s clothes are disinfected. I would also like to reccomend the pedestals which really make life easy, they are the perfect height, and they store a lot. These machines are the epitome of efficiency in every way, and they are super quiet! My only regret is not buying this pair sooner!
If you want to hit the trifecta, buy a steam cleaner for your floors, they will sanitize your floors on half a cup of water for the average sized floor! I use almost 3 cups of water to wash over 2,000 sqft of flooring from tile to wood to carpet! Talk about water savings!
