Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

WONDERFUL!!

FOOSERCHIC 2/25/2022

We got this because our old one was going out. Got it at a great discounted price and its like Christmas! I LOVE it! Its huge and love being able to make it one full load instead of doing 2-3 loads. There are so many unique setting and pretty sue I haven't figured them all out just yet but I will. I like how it can do a fast load in 28mins. Its amazing! It's funny because after using it for first few days after about the 4th wash it started playing a song at the end of the wash cycle letting you know your load is done, lol! I haven't figured out how to turn that off but its really cool!! Thanks again Samsung and Insiders!!

Great family investment

kaylioness 2/4/2022

This 5.1 cu. ft. Smart Top Load Washer w/ ActiveWave™ Agitator and Super Speed Wash (WA51A5505AW/US) was one of my greatest investments. I paid a discounted price but got the full vip treatment with this washer. No matter what my family washes, you have a setting for it. And if there is not a setting for what you need, you can download the app and and set you one. You need this in your life.

So Quiet and easy to use!!

Jwatts 1/26/2022

we replaced our front loading washer with this model after it needed repairs and was very loud. the front loader also gathered mildew along the seal causing odor. we love the larger capacity and all the different settings. we prefer unloading on this washer because we dont have to bend or kneel. the active waterjet function is nice for rinsing spots on clothing before putting them in. we definitly like the flexibility of the temp, rinse, spin, and soil settings. our teenagers load the machine to the max and it has handled the load with no problems. we are excited to try the 28 min. super speed wash cycle. the wifi connectivity is awesome and allows you to start a load from anywhere or be notified when the load is done. i would definitely recommend this washer!

Perfect washer for big family!

acpphs 1/25/2022

I bought this around fall break and I'm so glad! The large tub has cut down on my laundry time immensely. I have 5 kids so it piles up quickly. I wanted an agitator and this one fit the bill perfect. I love the ability to shoot water onto clothes to clean stains. I am also learning how to control the cycles from my phone. It is a big help to know when a cycle is done so it doesn't sit in the wash to long, esp when I am away and need the kids to transfer to the dryer. I would definitely buy this washer again.

not powerful enough

carminmi 1/18/2022

A beautiful item, energy save, but I don't like that even with the agitator the power of the movement is not enough to remove the stains on the clothes, so it is not what I look in a washer.

This Top Load Washer is Superior

gpaul115 1/13/2022

The Samsung 5.1 cu. ft. Large Capacity Smart Top Load Washer is a great choice for anyone who wants a large capacity washer. First, that is able to get clothes clean in a efficient and easy to use way. It is large but doesn't take up a lot of space. The washer get clothes clean with the many settings and cycles available when you plug it in, and you can download more cycles for upgrades. High tech and durable with a sleek design and clear glass top that is tough. The washer is very quiet and uses less water, making it a sustainable appliance doing more with less. The Samsung Washer can and will make a great upgrade to any home.

Quick and Quiet!

Mrsthua 1/13/2022

I am so ecstatic about the Samsung Smart Top Load Washer! We needed a more quiet washer that would get the job done efficiently and quickly. We have found a keeper! The washer can handle a big load and wash it in 30 minutes or so. I can barely hear the washer because it is so quiet. This makes doing laundry more convenient for our family. The kids can sleep without being disturbed by me running the washer. The clothing comes out clean and does not get tangled in the agitator at all.

Great washer with a lot of features

jflatt 1/3/2022

I was afraid this Samsung model might not be as nice as my current high end washer, but it does not disappoint at all! From the moment plugging it in and hearing it chime I realized this thing is packed with technology. The smart home integration is great too, as I work from home I can get a pop up notification that my laundry is ready for the next step. It makes it much harder to fall behind on laundry duties. As I'm writing this review I can hear the machine in the laundry room, it's playing a cheery little song to tell me my wash is complete. I'm actually excited to go through the user manual to find out how to use all the new features.

Wow! I am so impressed with my new 5.1 cu. ft. Smart Top Load Washer w/ ActiveWave™ Agitator and Super Speed Washer! I love the sleek and stylish design. I really like the see through top as well.

Wonderful Product Perfect for My Home

FemJones 11/11/2021

I am really enjoying this new washer. I recently bought a house and wanted to get new appliances to make it feel more like mine. This washer was right on time. I love the diversity of the cycle options. My reason for not giving it a 5 is because it's quite noisy and I was hoping for something quieter; it limits my ability to do laundry at night because my laundry room is so close to my bedrooms. I have not yet tried the self-clean option and I plan to look into ways to reduce the noise. It could be because I wash large loads of clothing (which is one of the reasons I love the washer--the huge capacity). Other than that, I love the functionality.

Best washer I have owed

Ladydee137 11/1/2021

This is the best washing machine I have ever owned. I like the style and the digital features. I have noticed that my clothes are cleaner. This machine holds a lot more than my other machine. It is so easy to use and the features are great. I have used a few of the features such as heavy load and the quick and normal wash. I washed my yellow king size comforter and it wasn't too heavy and it came out so bright and fluffy. I would recommend this machine to anyone looking to purchase a washer.
