What are your initial thoughts on the new Samsung AddWash washing machine?
Well firstly, the design of it is very modern and so it looks great in any contemporary setting.
What key factors do you think you need to consider when buying a washing machine?
Definitely the quality of the washing machine. A good washing machine will be a good investment so do research to find out exactly how well the machine works, what the maintenance is like, how energy efficient it is and the durability of course.
What is the feature from the Samsung AddWash that appeal most to you?
As I have a very busy lifestyle, for me a washing machine has to be quick and easy to use. I like it when the buttons and features on the machine are clear and there are pre-set options, which means I don’t need to spend time dawdling over which wash to choose, how it should spin, the water levels and any other option it gives me. With the AddWash, my laundry can be completed in under an hour with the Super Speed pre-set, and when it’s done, it’s clean and fresh.
Do you have a favourite feature from the AddWash?
I really like the Eco Bubbles feature from the AddWash. It delivers powerful cleaning by penetrating fabric and removing dirt, in low temperatures and it is gentle on clothes!
Where would the most ideal placement of the AddWash be?
If you have a laundry area, then that would be the obvious place. These days though, a lot of condos in particular, are very tight on space, so having a washing machine in the kitchen is probably the best place. You can easily fit a front-loading washing machine, like the Samsung AddWash, under the kitchen counter, and luckily the design of the AddWash is really sophisticated so it’ll blend well with any modern kitchen style.
How has the AddWash helped you in your everyday life?
It’s definitely made chores more convenient. Thanks to the AddWash door, I can basically add laundry anytime during the washing phase. All I need to do is simply add my clothes through the AddWash door and let it keep washing. It saves me time too as I can add my pre-soaked clothes during the rinse and spin phase, and it’s also great at conserving energy.
Why would you recommend the Samsung AddWash to your clients?
As an interior designer, we want to make sure every little detail in a space fits and complements each other. The Samsung AddWash has a great, modern and stylish design and will look good in any home. Also, all the extra features of this washing machine make it so much more convenient. It’s quick, easy to use and smart! What more could you want!
Simply Add During Wash
“As a designer, my life is constantly on the go, so the last thing I want to do is spend hours on laundry. I’m just like everyone else and at times, I’ll leave a shirt hanging behind the bathroom door, which should be in with the laundry. Luckily with Samsung AddWash, it allows me to simply and quickly add my forgotten item, even though the cycle has already started! Likewise, my hand-washed or pre-soaked clothes can easily be popped into the AddWash for the finishing rinse or spin dry cycles.”
“It’s definitely made chores so much easier and convenient with the Smart Control features for the AddWash. I can control what happens, when it happens. Smart Control lets me remotely control and monitor my washing using a smartphone App on my mobile. From anywhere inside or outside the house, I can instantly start or pause and monitor cycle selections like remaining time and finishing alerts.” *
Hush Sounds & Minimal Movement
“This really is the quietest washing machine! Samsung’s Vibration Reduction Plus Technology (VRT) enables the AddWash to operate quietly with minimal vibration. When I work from home, I often forget that I put the laundry on as it’s super quiet, which is great as I can fully focus on work at home. Luckily, the notifications on my phone let me know that it’s done.”
