When doing laundry, it's important that you sort your clothes by color. That way you don't have to worry that your white shirt will come out pink. By paying attention to the washing instructions, your clothing won't shrink and will stay beautiful longer. For a good washing result, you have to choose the right washing cycle, for example for cotton, wool, or silk.

Samsung EcoBubble

Samsung EcoBubble

Samsung washing machines with EcoBubble save energy by spreading foam over your laundry before the washing cycle starts. This makes the soap penetrate your clothing better and make stains disappear at a low temperature. You can use EcoBubble with detergent, powder detergent, and tablets.

Samsung QuickDrive

If you have a Samsung QuickDrive washing machine, you can wash twice as fast and use up to 20% less energy. With the SuperSpeed option, you can wash half a load in 39 minutes, thanks to the Q-Drum with rotating plate. This rotates in the opposite direction of the drum.

Samsung AddWash

A Samsung washing machine with AddWash has a special hatch through which you can insert your forgotten laundry, even when the washing program is already running. If you only want to rinse your delicate laundry, you can add it at the end of the program. AddWash only works at a temperature of up to 50℃.

Samsung Auto Optimal Wash

A Samsung washing machine with Auto Optimal Wash doses the right amount of detergent based on your dirty laundry. The washing program is adjusted by the washing machine and very dirty clothes receive an extra dose or rinse. This means that you no longer have to determine how much detergent you use for every wash cycle.

Placing it level

Level Samsung washing machine

To ensure that your Samsung washing machine is firmly in place and doesn't create any noise, you should place it level. You can do this by adjusting the 4 adjustable legs until the washing machine is straight. You can check this with a spirit level. After leveling it, it's important that you tighten each nut firmly with a open-end wrench. This prevents the washing machine from wobbling. The spin cycle can loosen the nuts. Make sure to tighten them twice a year to prevent vibrations and noise.

Samsung calibration
