activewash™

Designed to make doing laundry easier, this Samsung Top Load washer features patented activewash™ which allows you to pre-treat your clothes with care. It includes a built-in sink and a water jet for a one stop solution for stain removal and pre-washing.

5.2 cu. ft. Capacity

Washer capacity has a direct impact on how much time you spend doing laundry. Larger tub size means fewer loads, and fewer loads means more time doing other things you love. With a washer capacity of 5.2 cu. ft. you can quickly wash more laundry in a single load saving you time and effort.

Super Speed

Samsung's breakthrough Super Speed technology provides a faster and more thorough wash cycle. Simply select the Super Speed cycle and get up to a 40% faster wash cycle* – without sacrificing cleaning performance. With SuperSpeed, you can quickly wash a full load in as little as 36 minutes and save over 3 hours of laundry time every week.**
*Normal one-hour wash can be completed in as little as up to 36 minutes as compared to WF511 washer without SuperSpeed. Based on DOE standard’s average of 7.5 loads per week. **DOE consumer average of 350 10-lb loads per year with average normal wash cycle of 53 minutes equals a time-savings of over 3 hours per week.

AquaJet® Deep Clean

AquaJet® harnesses the power of high-impact water jets to gently wash your biggest loads. Its powerful spray ensures an ultra-deep yet safe wash for all your clothes.

VRT™ - Vibration Reduction Technology

Samsung’s patented VRT™ - Vibration Reduction Technology reduces noise to an incredibly low level. Its innovative tub design balances heavy loads quietly and with ease. Upstairs laundry has never been less obtrusive – run your washer upstairs while your children sleep.

15 Preset Wash Cycles

Easily customize each load as needed with 15 preset wash cycles designed to tackle everything from delicate garments to heavy duty sheets and towels.

Steam Wash

Samsung’s Steam Wash cycle has been engineered to improve the cleaning quality of your wash. Unlike other washers which release steam from above, Samsung releases steam from the bottom of the laundry tub, saturating every item in the load and leading to an even deeper clean with no pre-treatment necessary.

Heater and Sanitize Cycle

Washer has an internal heater and sanitize cycle that works to eliminate up to 99% of bacteria in each laundry load, so your clothes experience a deep and thorough clean.

Self Clean

For the ultimate in convenience, Self Clean technology keeps your top load washer tub fresh by removing dirt and bacteria – without the use of harsh chemicals – through a combination of soaking, pulsating and high speed spinning. Self Clean also sends reminders to clean the tub every forty wash cycles.

Swirl Drum Interior

The swirl drum interior features a unique design with smaller holes in the drum to help prevent fabrics from getting caught and damaged.

I am very please with my new washer. The new platinum color is very nice. The features are very nice to pick from for all the cloths you have these days to wash. It does not matter how dirty the cloths are this washer can handle it with all of the options.

We have had this machine for almost a week and we have used this machine three times and absolutely love it and the results of our clothing. This was an excellent purchase for my family.

I have only had this machine for a few days, but it is wonderful. The 5.2 capacity allows so many clothes, I have reduced the amount of time washing. I really like the low or no spin selection. I love the steam feature - this will save delicates from being torn apart as my old washer did. I like that you can put everything in and set the timer to start the wash later up to 24 hours. I love the basket. I didn't think we would use this, but our machine is in a garage and I've never had a sink out there. I will be using for stains or as a presoak or for super delicate washing. If you wash a delicate item you can then dump the entire contents in the machine and set it rinse and no-spin if needed. The spin cycle on "regular" is super fast. The 30 min quick wash is great if you need something fast. I am so very happy so far choosing this model The size overall is really great and fits nicely in my garage but this means the tub is slim and very deep. I keep a stool (I am 5'2")...
