Located these webpages on the following Samsung models. Since these were recently listed and do not yet appear as part of Samsung's existing sections on current washer and dryers (as of the date of this posting) then you have to assume that changes may still occur. At these links you can also download the manuals. I have no affiliation with Samsung.

Samsung Washer WF457 List Price: $1,699 USD for Onyx; $1,599 USD for white (As listed on Best Buy's website. I have no affiliation with Best Buy.)

Key features of your new Smart PowerFoam washer:


  • The Largest Capacity: Samsung's extra-large capacity laundry machine can wash a full set of your Bedding, PLUS a kingsize comforter or up to 32 bath towels in a single load. Since you don't have to do as many loads, you save time, money, water and energy.

You don't have to be on standby until the cycle ends. Smart Control allows you to monitor the washing process and lets you know when the cycle is complete.

A beltless direct-drive motor generates a higher spin speed of 1,300 rpm for a more effective, quieter operation. The washer also has fewer moving parts, meaning fewer repairs.

Sounds like they'll have some pretty bells and whistles. If you have really dirty laundry the power foam might be something to check out. I wonder if technicians will have to invest in equipment to diagnose problems or if the machine will actually tell them via the led screen.
