About - Samsung WA400PJHD[WR]

The Samsung WA400PJHD[WR] is part of the washing machine test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, top-loading washing machine models like the WA400PJHD[WR] are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Washing performance:
This reflects the degree of color change to swatches of fabric that were included in an 8-pound and maximum capacity test load of mixed cotton items using the machines' most aggressive normal cycle. (We do not use special cycle or option buttons.)

Energy efficiency:
This score is based on the energy needed to heat the water for 8-pound and maximum loads using a warm wash and cold rinse. We consider both gas and electric water heaters, and include electricity needed to run the washer and energy needed for drying. Washers that extract more water are scored higher.

Water efficiency:
This score denotes how much water it took to wash our 8-pound load and each machine's maximum load. On models that didn't set the fill level automatically, we used the lowest fill setting that sufficed for the 8-pound load. We then calculated water used per pound of clothing.

Comment:
Please reconsider buying this washer. After 2.5 years we began having problems with the machine stopping before the end of the spin cycle (Error code DC). Four service visits later still nothing could be done to fix this problem. Now I am having to buy a new washer for my family after just 2 years ½ years of normal family use.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I am another Samsung WA400PJHD customer who had the washer for 1.5 years and it is broken. Sounds like multiple people are having the same problem, machine starts spin cycle and either doesn't spin and gives imbalance code or continuously refills itself with water. A & E service (part of Lowes extended warranty program) came out for the third time today since 7/70/2014, replaced assembly motor.Did my first load and had same problem. Technician said I need to load my washer carefully and evenly. Never had to do that before. Even after showing him all the research showing hundreds having same problem, he said to make sure the load is evenly loaded. I called Lowes back and they are sending another repair company out in 5 days. Unbelievable a company can get away with screwing hundred of customers.
