Eco Bubble Technology This is just one of Samsung’s washing machines to feature Eco Bubble technology. It uses lots of tiny bubbles to mix air, detergent and water more effectively, meaning your clothes get all the ingredients for a great wash quickly. This has the added benefit of reducing energy consumption – an Eco Bubble wash at 15°C uses 70% less energy than a standard 40°C wash. Kind to Clothes The WF70F5E3W4W is gentle on your clothes. This is partly because Eco Bubble takes some of the physical mixing out of the process, but also because of Samsung’s Diamond Drum design. Pyramid shapes and smaller holes mean the clothes are treated less roughly and are less likely to snag. Baby care and wool programs mean you can hygienically clean delicate items, too. Built to Last Another clever feature of this machine is the anti-limescale heater, which has a ceramic coating. As it resists scale build-up, it’s likely to last longer. Samsung reckon the heater will last up to 10 years, and the rest of the machine has a quality feel as well. The LED display and simple central knob make it easy to keep an eye on the machine’s progress as you can tell how much of the cycle is left to run. Useful Programs Some washing machines have lots of programs you’ll never use, but this Samsung model has some really useful ones. The 15 minute quick wash is sure to be a favourite, and the Super Eco Wash function is great for saving energy (especially when you consider the machine’s excellent A+++ energy efficiency rating). There’s also an outdoor care program to make sure your waterproofs stay waterproof, and a special setting for removing stains.
