Samsung 8.5kg QDrive Front Loading Washing Machine is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent wash, quite and fast I recently purchased this washing as my old washing broke. Its been excellent so far. I was surprised to some of stains getting washed even though the cloth was washed number of times in my old washing machine. Its fast and quite and like additional washing programs like eCotton for quick wash. Best part is this can be connected to mobile for real time washing status and also can receive notifications once washing is complete. I would have rated it 5 star but for price I have given it a 4 star. Overall a good purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressed with results! It's still early days. We bought this machine to replace our German built Bosch that failed after 7 days. Back to back with the Bosch we're very impressed with the features and results. The large door opening is great and it's a very quiet washer and looks nice. The wifi features is good.. bit glitchy, but probably need the spend some time working it out properly. My only con for this machine is that the door doesn't stay ajar when not being used. We always leave the door on our washers slightly open to prevent mould and we can't do that with this one as it just swings wide open. It wouldn't be a problem on the model down from this one that has a different door hinge. Otherwise very happy.

I've spent alot of money for something that is usless

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Expensive but can't dry sheets or any large items. I have had this dryer 6 months. It works reasonably well except for doing bed linen. we have tried everything but everytime it ends up tangled and never drys out. I don't know why this happens but we have had el cheapo dryers that do a better job. We now have to take the bed linen to the local laundromat (5 klm away) to get it dried. Not happy Jan!!!! We spent a fortune on this dryer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wouldn't recommend Never dries anything properly. I've tried every cycle minimised the amount of washing in the dryer at one time etc. And nothing works! EXTREMELY disappointed with this purchase the amount of money you pay for these you'd expect a top quality product. Would NOT recommend to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasantly surprised! Bought it for my wife about a month ago now and she’s very impressed with it, after only ever having owned top loaders she’s found this machine soooo much quieter almost silent and washes so much cleaner as well and so many options that the others don’t have like the bubble soak & wash and the extra hot and the steam hygiene washes and the amazing high speed spin with automatic balancing! No vibrations whatsoever, was quite expensive but worth every bit! Excellent machine! *****

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The most disappointing purchase I have ever made. We bought this based on higher energy rating out of most of the dryer' s on the market in a similar size. I am yet to be able.to.finish.any of the many options for specifidc cycles with dry clothes. All.of these features are meaningless if they do not work. I suspec this is a venture of marketing invention as suppose to.scientific innovating One was 3 hours long!!!! Totally riduclous. This was the mixed load cycle. 3 hours! Totally inadequated to.perform.to loads back.to back.. . I cannot fathom how this would actually be more.energy efficient when my last dryer ran for never more than one hour, but never had any damp clothes on the dryer has to go all day and the preset or are absolutely useless and don't dry! The towels and bedding get balled up and this also cause inconsistent drying I will be seeing a refund for this from samsung as it clearly is not aable.to.perform as a clothes dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish, smart and great energy saving Firstly Samsung have not cut back on style. It is sleek and modern looking. The 9kg is a real bonus though you may still want to put 1/2 loads if time is a concern. Though it can detect if some items have tried and therefore you can take those out before the cycle ends. The A+++ energy rating is great though possibly it isn't as fast as the Zanussi I used to have I think it is gentler and seems to generate less lint. The water collector at the top is a good feature as is the light. I wish the water level was a little clearer though my old device had none so still a bonus. I wasn't convinced about the Smart element initially but being told to my phone it is "ready" is great. I mainly used mix option which meant the non cotton items which dry quicker could be extracted 3/4 through the cycle. I liked the favourite option too which makes life easier for the less technical user. It is actually very easy to use. The lint double filter will no doubt increase the life span of the drier. It did make it candyfloss like and on occasions stubborn to remove. Be good to have a scraper tool to assist there. The warm air clean was good for those clothes which have been sitting in drawers for a season and much quicker than washing. There was a silent dry but to be fair the device was extremely quiet. The extra hour means I might not use that often. I did try some sodden clothes it did struggle to dry them on one cycle. I did use the bedding feature but not sure what it did different. They did come out fresh. I hadn't considered drying trainers but the rack option is a great bonus. Overall I do recommend this product. The price bracket is a little steep but combined with the washer not only look fab but do have really useful extras.
