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.

Water pump went out as all of the Samsung washing machines seem to. Thankfully, I haven't been flooded, yet, as many poor souls have been. No more Samsung for me unless they want to replace this gratis.

Thought it was quality. It isn't. The drum came loose and ground against the top of the washer. Thought we were alone in this department but found a video on youtube showing it. It is a common occurrence. Less than 15 months after purchasing a new washer, we now have to find another.<br /><br />Of course, the damage is not covered under warranty.

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.
