High Efficiency Top Loading Washers Are Better.

Updated on October 19, 2013

It was one of those days. You walk into the laundry room in you sock feet with a load of clothes and you step in a puddle. It's a shock. It is also a dangerous situation. Electricity and water do not mix. So when our washer started leaking, it was time to go shopping.

I own several Samsung products from my smart phone ( 3 phones actually) my TV and my fridge so it was natural for me to gravitate to the Samsung washers on display. There were several to choose from. My parents had a set of front loading H.E. laundry machine in their new home and we really liked them but the front loading washer made the house shake during the spin cycle. I choose the top loading model because it fit my space better and I have hopes it will not shake my house apart.

The new H.E. top loaders are suppose to be even better than the front loaders so I was sold the minute we looked at them.

My wife likes it because the tub size almost double her current leaky machine. She can now do all her comforters and blankets at home instead of taking everything to the laundromat. Me, I like it because I can use an app on my smart phone and link to the washer. I just love being able to use my Smart phone in others ways - ie: Save Energy On Home Heating With The Nest

I am getting on the green earth band wagon and lowering my fuel bills by getting high effiency appliances and reducing my carbon footprint. Purchasing our new Samsung WA456DRHDSU washing machine is just the next step in the right direction.

I don't like scented laundry soap but that is just me... If you are the same try this.

The delivery service would not hook up our new washer unless we had stainless steel hoses. It make sense to get good hoses that will last. They are definitely worth the price.

 

Use only HE laundry soap in your HE washer. It is designed to reduce the amount of suds produced by the more vigorous washing cycles. If you use the regular soap and your regular amount, you'll cleaning up a suds overflow.

Do You Have Any Hints On Using HE Washers?

My parents machine was a front loader. It had to be cleaned regularly as the door seal would trap moisture and start to mold. That is a negative feature of the front loaders. He extended the time between these cleanings by leaving the door propped open enough for air movenment.
