Samsung WF405ATPA SpeedSpray 4.0 Cu. Ft.

by Jaro

RANK #10:

Samsung WF405ATPAAs other washers, this one also features the Vibration Reduction Technology or the VRT. This helps in reducing the level of vibration and noise while at the same time helps the proper handling and the facilitation of unbalanced loads. This is considered to be ideal washer for heavy bulks and large items. Furthermore, it also reduces the washing time for up to 15 minutes thus this allows you to save more on electricity and water.

Its Power foam Technology is great in providing gentle yet powerful foam to accommodate heavy loads. Overall, this machine cannot really offer anything better than the better ranked washers on my chart and that’s why it’s sitting on the 10th position. Nevertheless, I still think that if you decide for this washer, you’ll be satisfied.
