Features of Samsung’s AI-powered Washing Machines
Samsung continues to innovate by creating advanced laundry solutions that are flexible and powered by intelligent AI technology, to ensure a connected and seamless laundry experience. The AI controls provide smart solutions like Laundry Recipe, Laundry Planning, HomeCare Wizard and location-based recommendations to make doing the laundry easier and more effective.
AI Pattern learns and remembers your laundry habits and suggests the most appropriate cycles. It ensures that cycles are personalized and optimized to fit your needs and lifestyle to give a better laundry experience. It also helps fix errors without the need to call the service center or flip through the manual. And the Auto Cycle Link communicates with the dryer to select the perfect drying course.
The AI Wash uses 4 types of sensors to sense the laundry’s weight and level of soiling, and optimizes the amount of water, detergent, and rinsing time.
Air Wash Technology
The Air wash technology keeps clothes hygienically fresh without water and detergent. Air Wash technology deodorizes and removes 99.9% of bacteria. Unpleasant odors as well as bacteria are removed using just heated air. And, because it doesn’t use water, the clothes don’t need drying, so they last longer, and it seems like they have been dry–cleaned.
Samsung’s EcoBubble™ technology uses a bubble generator to dissolve detergent into the water and then inject air, producing a rich soapy foam cushion that penetrates 40 times faster. With less mechanical actions and a bubble cushion, the technology provides 45% extra fabric care. The softer and smoother bubble action protects delicate clothes such as outdoor wear and water repellent fabrics. Eco Bubble™ ensures the detergent is properly dissolved into the water leading to faster penetration into clothes. The Super Eco Wash program washes at just 15°C, with the results of a 40°C wash, using just 30% of the energy as a result.
Super Speed Cycle
The SuperSpeed Cycle feature can be simply used to wash a full load in just 59 minutes. Eco Bubble™ technology ensures powerful cleaning, while the rinsing time is shortened using Speed Spray. It also accelerates the spin speed to quickly spin–dry clothes.
QuickDrive™ has been designed to provide entirely new levels of washing performance. This technology not only drastically speeds up laundry cycles, but also makes the process much simpler and more energy-efficient. The innovative fabric care drum is equipped with a pulsator that creates a unique dynamic action to wash your clothes quickly and efficiently, every time. Now you can spend less time washing and more time wearing clothes. For instance, using SuperSpeed Cycle with a 5kg load, QuickDrive™ technology can get a full clean in just 39 minutes.
Auto Dispense enables you to wash clothes thoroughly with less time and effort. It automatically dispenses the appropriate amount of detergent and softener for each load, saving 26% of detergent and 46% of softener. The easy-to-refill detachable tank can hold enough detergent for up to 1 month of washing.
AddWash lets the user add extra items or detergent after the wash cycle has started. One can add forgotten items, additional softener and rinse-only items anytime during a cycle.
Hygiene Steam deep cleans clothes by releasing steam from the bottom of the drum and making the laundry thoroughly saturated. Hygiene Steam removes ingrained grime and 99.9% of bacteria and allergen. In the hygiene steam cycle, first the water, soil and detergent is drained out. Second, it gets a small amount of clean water to make steam. Then the built-in heater boils water for 20 minutes. After the steam phase, it drains the water and starts rinsing and finally proceeds to the next washing process to complete the cycle.
Digital Inverter Technology
DIT utilizes strong magnets for quieter and more powerful performance, but uses less energy as compared to a Universal Motor with brush. It doesn’t use brushes that wear out and is built using high-quality components and outstanding mechanical engineering. This is backed up by a 10-year warranty that guarantees the long life of your washing machine.
Drum Clean/ Drum Clean +
