This Samsung washer proves two doors aren't better than one
Let's start with the things I really love about this Samsung front-load washing machine.
It has 14 cleaning cycles, a massive five cubic foot capacity, and it looks really nice in its black, stainless finish.
I also think the touch panel is really simple, it's intuitive, it's easy to use and control so That's all the good stuff.
Let's get that out of the way.
The problem is this gimmicky, hatch-like device on the front here.
It's called the add wash.
The idea is that you're adding things that you forgot to add to your cleaning cycle, mid-cycle.
A sock, something else random that you just forgot to add.
You can just stick it in and keep going with your cycle but it doesn't actually work that way, you actually have to push that hard on the machine anyway and that on must supposed to main door and the add wash door so you mind as well.
Just open the main cabinet you get whatever you want and especially if it's a bulky items because I'm always getting all kinds of different stuff not just my tiny items, so It's kind of a cool feature in theory, but it doesn't actually add a lot of value.
The good news is that you're not actually spending a premium on this, this is actually a really high performing impressive machine, so even if you don't love the AdWash, you can still get this machine and feel good about it, it's definitely a model I would recommend.
