RANK #5:

Samsung WF520ABW 3.7 cu ft.Samsung is proud to show you another of its amazing appliances for everyday laundry homework. The big advantage of this company over others is that it was actually manufacturing parts for washers for whole bunch of other companies, long before they started with their own production. This one is ranked as the fifth best front-load washer I could find on the internet.  Taking into account as many user comments and reviews as possible, this one seems to be a pretty reliable machine.

Conclusion:
I don’t really know why, but I don’t like the design of this Samsung washer much. Maybe because the display gives me an impression of and older and not really modern machine. But it can be that it’s just me, and you think something else. I just really care about how much things look like, sometimes even too much I would say, which doesn’t make me any favor. Anyway, except that and a little higher price than other washers in the same league, I understand why people would buy it. It has some really strong sides such as that it’s extremely quiet and also seems to be very reliable according to what I could read on various discussions on the internet.
