Samsung’s $999 WF45M5500AZ obtained the second finest stain elimination rating of any front-load washer we have examined. I like to recommend it for those who’re searching for a midrange mannequin with wonderful efficiency. You possibly can stack it below (or set up it subsequent to) the corresponding dryer.

A random mixture of buttons, contact controls and a knob make the washer’s show a bit chaotic, however its digital display screen is simple to learn from a distance. The Samsung Sensible Washer app is meant that will help you troubleshoot potential issues along with your washer, however it’s outdated and glitchy. I would counsel calling customer support as a substitute. 

Even with its barely cluttered show and annoying app, the WF45M5500AZ is a powerful contender alongside different washers within the $1,000 vary. 

The washer ‘blues’

I just like the look of the WF45M5500AZ. The blue end manages to be totally different with out being an excessive amount of. You too can decide for a similar washer in both platinum (additionally $999) or white ($899). You will discover all the settings you want on the show panel, however its assorted buttons and contact controls are slightly messy.  The Samsung Sensible Washer app is glitchy, too. It is supposed that will help you diagnose washer points, however I would skip the app altogether and simply contact customer support or a restore particular person as a substitute. 

Here is how this Samsung mannequin compares to the $1,099 Electrolux EFLS617S and the $1,199 Whirlpool WFW87HEDW:
