Recycling Batteries Responsibly

  • The European Directive on Batteries and Accumulators aims to minimise the impact of batteries on the environment and encourage the recovery of the materials they contain. In the UK, regulations on the recycling of batteries and accumulators (rechargeable batteries) were Introduced in 2009. The Waste Batteries Regulations aim to significantly increase UK collection and recycling of used portable batteries from 3% in 2007 to 25% by 2012, rising to at least 45% in 2016.

  • The battery symbol on a product or on its packaging indicates that the product must not be disposed of with general household waste. Instead, it is the consumer’s responsibility to dispose of their waste batteries at a designated collection point so that they can be recycled. The separate collection and recycling of batteries at the time of dispo sal will help to conserve natural resources and ensure that they are recycled in a manner that protects human health and the environment. A comprehensive list of battery recycling centres can be obtained from: www.recycle-more.co.uk

  • All Samsung products that are subject to the Batteries Directive are compliant with the UK battery and accumulator Requirements. In accordance with national law, SAMSUNG Electronics (UK) Ltd is a member of an approved batteries producer compliance scheme. This scheme collects, treats and disposes of batteries on Samsung’s behalf.

8" LCD Touch Screen - Total control at your fingertips
Featuring the largest LCD screen of any residential laundry machine, the Samsung Smart Washer and Dryer give you total control at a touch. Quickly scroll through and select temperature settings, spin speeds, rinse options and more on an intuitive 8” Touch Screen display.

Get clothes cleaner faster with SpeedSpray™ and PowerFoam™

Get clothes cleaner faster with SpeedSpray™ and PowerFoam™
Less time doing laundry means more time enjoying life. SpeedSpray™ uses powerful shots of water to improve cleansing performance and remove detergent residue faster. The technology saves over 90 minutes on an average week’s worth of laundry, compared to conventional washers.* And PowerFoam™ technology creates a foam that gently penetrates fabrics more quickly and thoroughly than detergent in conventional washers. * Based on DOE standard average of 7.5 loads per week, a normal one-hour wash can now be completed in as little as 45 minutes vs. washers without SpeedSpray™.

Generous capacity means fewer loads

Generous capacity means fewer loads
Whether you have several sets of bedding to wash, or your kids go through three outfits a day, you need a washer that can hold larger loads. The large 5.2 cu.ft capacity of the Smart Washer lets you wash up to 32 bath towels at once. Compare that to a 4.0 cu.ft. washer that handles only about 23. Not only will you save time by washing fewer loads, you’ll also save water and energy.

Less than a week old and it's NOT WORKING! ! !

Not sure why...shuts off mid-cycle like the power is off. Won't re-boot, won't turn on - power is good, plugged in. Had to unplug for 1/2 hour...thenit came back on.

Went to do another load - same issue...just shuts off. This is not a cheap machine. VERY UNHAPPY. Think it's going back.

Awesome

Awesome washer, love the touchscreen. I dont really understand the point of the smart control, someone still has to physically load the washer and why not just start it right there? Need to search for the washer on the app then pick a cycle and start it doesnt make much sense.

For the price i wish the pedestals came with it, haven't felt like wasting the money on them. speaker is loud enough to hear upstairs.

Cleans well, has too many bugs/quirks with software

This machine definitely gets clothes clean and does so quicker than our old machine ever did. That said for a technology company I'm pretty disappointed in Samsung's app and software.

I tried using the app and gave up pretty quickly. I just don't see how it makes my life any easier. I've had several error codes out of the machine, mostly related to too many suds and not the machine's fault. I have the automatic updates turned on but, apparently it has not been updating. I started that manually this morning and after several hours it had reached about 50% downloaded and decided to disconnect from the network. So I get to start that process all over. Also, it's more of an issue with the dryer than the machine but, I hate how the machine immediately shuts down after completing a cycle. Not helpful when doing multiple loads. If Samsung actually reads this I'd like to see the following: 1. Give me the option to turn the auto power down off. 2. Since both Washer and dryer are networked allow them to talk to each other so the washer can sync it's run time with the dryer when doing multiple loads. 3. Make network connection more consistent and faster.

WiFi Died After Three Days... Service Has No Clue To Fix

Great looking machine... seems to do a good job washing (after all, that IS its main job!). My issue has been with the wifi. After having it up and running for 3 days, the machine now shows a message of "can not find wifi module.

" Called for service, and the company the appointment was outsourced to never showed for confirmed call. To Samsung's credit, they rescheduled the next day with another company -- but get this -- when they arrived, they weren't aware of a washer with wifi. Had no clue how to fix it. Guys... your techs, and outsourced folks need to be trained on products you sell to consumers!
