    Does this also come with a fire extinguisher?

      A bit old now…
      Required for phones, they have direct water hose connection to take care of that… ;)

        A friend of mine had smoke pouring out of his laundry a while back. He's still in dispute over who pays for the smoke and other damage caused by his Samsung washing machine.

        Samsung have had their share of problems well beyond the recent phone incident.

        •  

          Again, that was with the front loaders as explained in comment below. Horror stories for every brand. Buyers need to buy at their own discretion. I don't have Samsung myself TBH, but my sis got Samsung last year and loved it.

      They seem to be applying the battery explosive technology to appliances now ?

    We all know how important it is to set a seperate washing program for dark garments right!

    For those in SE QLD, The Electric Discounter has a Beko 7kg machine for $559 and 8kg for $659 respectively as well as an 8kg Simpson model for $669. Specs appear fairly similar.

    •  

      This one is 8.5 Kg and price difference between 7.5 or 8 and 8 and 8.5 is normally over $60-100.
      Not sure why u say they specs are same. Other than front loader, they are different machines and pretty average reviews for Simpson and also Beko.
      Extra glass door and inverter moter is worth more than the price differnce and not to say 8.5 kg size and brand.

        The Samsung brand is "worth more"? Given the recent bad press they've had for catching on fire? LMAO.

        I don't dispute that Samsung has more advanced technology ie an inverter motor (though unsure how that or an extra glass door makes your clothes cleaner), this is just a more budget friendly option for those in the market.

        •  

          Yes.LMFAO. Surprised you mentioned against Belo and Simpson…

          Those fire issues for Samsung were were with top loaders. So lets compare apples vs apples. Its like saying S7 or S7 edge are bad as note had issues.

          Surprisingly, you didn't do research for Beko and Simpson

          said 115 of the 280 machines which exploded were Beko appliances and 10 per cent were made by HotPoint.

          @Sir Casm, The inverter motor and Bubble Wash are worthwhile additions. I had the previous generation (or 2 generations?) older version of this washing machine and though it took its sweet time cleaning clothes (2hr 9min cycle for cotton vs 50min cycle for my 10 year old top loader, although compared to 3hr 30min cycle for my parents' ?LG front loader, it's not too shabby) it does a fine job. While OzBargain is a deals site, it is not a race to the bottom site. I wouldn't really count those two as fair comparisons for the above mentioned reasons. While those two front loading washing machines are certainly cheaper, JB also has a 7kg front loading Beko for $498.
          Thanks for the deal OP, in the process of buying new whitegoods, sold all my previous stuff when I moved.

          @serrin:

          I have an LG of a similar vintage, and yes the "regular" cycle takes 2+hrs, very inconvenient at times.

          Some clarification may help, I wasn't offering my suggestion as an apples v apples comparison, moreso that there are budget options that offer a more or less similar outcome (and TED is an excellent independent retailer for those of us in SEQ), hence there was no neg vote, OP seemed more than a little butthurt that anyone dared question their wisdom is all.

          @Sir Casm: Your initial comment was about as helpful as suggesting in a Samsung S7/Pixel/HTC M10/LG V20 thread that people should consider buying a Samsung A9/Xiao Mi/Meizu/Huawei Ascend etc instead.
          There's lots of cheaper washing machines out there that do similar loads to the Samsung, even JB's website has one that's 2/3 of the price. However, they're not really comparable in terms of features and if I was the OP I would be annoyed as well.

        •  

          @Sir Casm: lol, then you can miss suggesting people with products which have different spec, size, brand, quality and features. I am not getting anything personally out of it and will love if some better products are mentioned as someone might benefit out of it and that is the whole purpose of ozbargain.

        •  

          @Sir Casm: No, I didnt. What made you think so.
          I only answered your question, but yes was surprised to see your suggestions which didnt make any sense.

          Given the recent bad press they've had for catching on fire? LMAO.

        •  

          @Sir Casm: Same for you. So u start a discussion with bad examples and then run off by saying that?

          @Sir Casm:

          dared to question your logic

          No, I didn't. So tell where I did that? I never wrote a logic.

          Specs appear fairly similar.

          No they were not. They were not even close LMFO.

          offered an alternative for people

          Come one, your examples are not even same size, leave it, dont want to start again. Why will you offer alternative of a 7 or 7.5 KG when someone is looking for 8.5? Should have gone for 5 KG. That will be more cheap.

          accept that sometimes other people have different opinions!

          What? again you started something totally different and I cant explain more even giving you examples. You unfortunately don't get it do you?

          you're harping on about a washing machine for chrissake…

          Not sure if it is me or you. I only answered you.

          The Samsung brand is "worth more"? Given the recent bad press they've had for catching on fire? LMAO.

          You are saying something and I only showed you similar review about your so called alternatives as well. Then how come you are taking easy and I am not.

          So looks like it is you who cant take opinion on your suggestions.

    Will never buy another Samsung front loader. Had both bubble wash and inverter motor. Doesn't matter when the pump pit in them can't handle the water load. I had 2 pumps due in 3 years. Sensor failed too and the repair man said it would be cheaper to just buy and new one and he said don't buy a Samsung. Just my experience. Very happy for those who have one that is working. 👍

    •  

      I had the pump weaken/die on mine after 3 years as well, but was covered under extended warranty, and I got a full refund as well as let me keep the old machine so I bought I pump off eBay for $60 and repaired it then sold it.
      The wife was happy with the Samsung despite that so we bought a new Samsung washer with extended warranty again.

  •  

    Great price, I got one for $836 last year when they first came out. Love it so far.
