Samsung might be more famous for its phones and TVs than its washing machines, but it's becoming increasingly well-known for its appliances.
If you're thinking about splashing out on a Samsung, but you're unsure how good its washing machines are, read on.
Find out how Samsung washing machines score in our reviews and how reliable they are. Below, we also tell you how owners rate their Samsung washing machines and likely they are to get a fault.
All of the data in the guide has been independently researched. We buy all of the Samsung machines we test and run our own surveys to find out what owners really think of their washing machines.
The average test score is based on results for all models we've tested that are still currently available. The customer score and proportion faulty are based on a Which? member survey conducted in September 2021 of 1,428 Samsung owners. The customer score is based on customer satisfaction and whether members would recommend the brand to a friend. Testing information last updated in December 2021.
Samsung washing machines typically sit within the middle to upper price ranges, with an average price of around £600.
The cheapest are available for just around £400, while the most expensive will set you back more than £1,000. The more you spend, the more of the latest tech you can expect.
Samsung washing machines are generally quite feature-rich, with a lot of extra programs and functions to choose from. Samsung also allows you to set some of its machines using a smartphone, which can also diagnose any problems the machine might be suffering.
Many Samsung washing machines now also have the AddWash feature, which is a hatch in the door to add in extra items midway through the cycle.
Some models use Samsung’s Ecobubble technology, which mixes detergent with water before entering the drum, then uses air to froth the mixture. It claims that by using this method, detergent can penetrate the fabrics in your laundry more quickly than normal. Ecobubble machines are also billed as being able to wash as effectively in cool water as in warm, saving you energy.
Samsung only produces freestanding washing machines, so there are no options for those that want a built-in model to sits behind a cupboard door.
