About - Samsung WA422PRHD[WR]

The Samsung WA422PRHD[WR] is part of the washing machine test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, top-loading washing machine models like the WA422PRHD[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.

Best Uses
Tall Peoples Washer
We had the washer for a week. The display model at the store was up on a platform.<br />When the unit was delivered we discovered we could not reach the bottom of the tub without a step ladder(not a great plan). We are in our 60's and 5'6 tall. It takes an hour and a half to wash a load. We have a 28 year old Maytag at the other house still going strong. Sure wish I could buy another one just like it. <br />This a tall peoples machine that needs another home.

Best Uses
I have owned this machine for a little over 18 months. I do have 4 kids so it does get used frequently but do not abuse it. Two weeks ago my downstairs flooded as water poured out of the bottom of my machine. It took several technicians to even determine the correct problem (many repair places do not even work on Samsung) It was determined that the pump was broken. It was VERY difficult to even locate the part. It had to be ordered from the other side of the country! As the technician looked into it, he found that the pump was being discontinued so if this new pump breaks... it will not be able to be fixed. He then looked at other parts and found that they are being discontinued as well. It was a BIG mistake to buy this machine. I will never buy a Samsung washing machine/dryer again.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
Don't buy it, you will regret
Best Uses
Bought it a few month ago, and it is the second time that needs repair. Basically, the machine doesn't clean your cloth properly. It doesn't get enough water to wash the cloth, leaves white marks on the cloth, even with proper level of detergent, and its panel board can require repair even during a few month of purchasing it. The worst washer I have ever had, and I have wasted a few hundred $. WILL NEVER BUY SAMSUNG WASHER ANYMORE!
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
