What wash cycle should I use for my Samsung washing machine?

Water consumption and time taken for the cycle will depend on a number of factors such as the temperature set, the size of the load, water pressure, water hardness, water inlet temperature, and the degree of soiling.

 

For example, a cotton cycle with a small load with a temperature set of 20 will take approximately 148 minutes, but a larger load where the Intensive option is added might take 244 minutes.

 

The water consumption per cycle is approximately 39 to 53 litres per cycle, dependent on load, cycle and degree of soiling.

 

Please refer to the manual for more detailed information on water consumption and washing times.
