How Long Does the Silver Nano Kit Last?

Samsung's SilverCare™ system adds silver ions during the wash and rinse cycles to maximize the sanitizing and antibiotic effects. Two plates of 99.9% pure silver, a very effective sanitizing agent, are converted into silver ions through electrolysis and penetrate the laundry. Even in cold water, silver particles sanitize and kill 99.9% of odor-causing micro organisms. Furthermore, this process sanitizes not only clothes but also the tub. Washing garments with SilverCare™ can save about 92% of energy compared to hot water sanitization. Also, SilverCare™ Technology prevents damage to delicate clothes compared to sanitizing in hot water. For 2007 and earlier models, the Silver Nano Kit is guaranteed for 10 years or 3,000 SilverCare™ cycles, whichever comes first. For 2008 and newer models, the SilverCare lasts 1000 cycles. You can find the number of SilverCare™ cycles the washer has run by pressing the [Signal] and [SilverCare™] buttons and reading the code that appears. On 2007 and earlier models, the codes have the following meanings: • LU3 : 2,000 to 3,000 times • LU2 : 1,000 to 2,000 times • LU1 : less than 1,000 times • LU0 : over 2,999 times On 2008 and newer models, the codes have the following meanings: • LU1 : less than 1000 cycles • LU0 : 1000 cycles

    The Silver Nano assembly will have to be replaced by a technician.   

    For all models, you should replace the SilverCare™ kit when it displays LU0. Call Samsung Customer Care at 1-800-SAMSUNG (1-800-726-7864) for replacement information.
