Good points:
An excellent machine that 'does the job' well. Chose Samsung for reliability. The 7kg size is really useful for towels, bedding, duvets, etc and the big door makes it very easy to get the larger items such as duvets in and out. Love having the Quick Wash facility and being able to adjust water temperature and spin speeds within the different wash programmes. This means you are not restricted to a certain water temperature and a certain spin speed for each programme. For example, the temperature that automatically shows when you choose Quick Wash is 30c but I can up it to 40c or 60c. Moving from 30c to 60c adds to the time from a 29 mins cycle at 30c to 59mins at 60c but that is still well below the 95mins my last machine used to take for a 60c wash. And if you are pushed for time (and money) having a wash cycle that takes just 29 mins is a real boon. The machine looks stylish and is quiet. Spin speed of 1400 is absolutely great for towels meaning less time in the drier and spin speeds available of 400/800/1200/1400 covers all you need. Very happy with purchase at a good price and fast delivery!
Bad points:
Haven't found any. Yes, it would have been nice to have a 50c wash option but it's not essential and I don't consider not having it enough to merit calling it a bad point. All the other good points outweigh this for me.

Bad points:
It came with a minute pin hole in the outlet hose - but some ptfe tape soon sorted that (I didn't want to send it back for something so easily fixed!!!)

Good points:
This Sammy looks good, has a good feature set and good running economy (on paper). Build quality seems to be generally good and it works well so far.
Bad points:
I had to open up the back of the machine to remove one of the transport plugs which was broken and got stuck inside. Hardly something the average consumer could be expected to do. Installed it myself without major problems but had great problems getting it out of the packaging until I saw that a large bart of the bottom part reaches up into the bottom of the machine. Put it on the side or rear when unpacking!

Washing Machines Buyers Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

The 7kg capacity, 1400rpm spin WF8704RSW is part of SAMSUNG’s new Air Refresh range of washing machines. All Air Refresh washing machines feature the latest in design and technology; the Air Refresh cycle removes wrinkles and odours from your clothes using warm air, while the Diamond Drum helps to prevent ‘bobbling’ thanks to its unique design. Ceramic heaters also feature in all Air Refresh washing machines, giving you 10 years peace of mind.

air refresh

Air Refresh is a 30 minute cycle which removes odours and wrinkles from your clothes by streaming heated, fresh air over them. It is particularly useful for refreshing dry-clean only garments, for example freshening up suit trousers. It can also be used to refresh bedding and linen, leaving them smelling clean and fresh.

ceramic heater

The Air Refresh range of washing machines have incorporated a heater with double ceramic coating, which makes them less porous and susceptible to hard water scale build-up than standard heaters. Whereas a normal heater has a life span of around 3 years in hard water areas, SAMSUNGs ceramic heaters will last up to 10 years. The prevention of limescale build up also has cost advantages, as ceramic heaters use less power and take less time to heat up than standard heaters as they get older.

wide door

The door has been widened, making loading and unloading larger items such as bedding much easier.

diamond drum

The Diamond Drum is unique to SAMSUNG and helps care for your clothes and fabrics. The holes in the Diamond Drum are 75% smaller than those in a standard drum and are located deep within a diamond-embossed imprint. The diamond shape collects more water than a standard imprint, meaning your clothes are in contact with water for longer, while the smaller holes prevent fabrics from sticking out and consequently being damaged.

wool mark certification

Now you can wash your woolen garments safe in the knowledge that they will be protected, as all Air Refresh washing machines are Wool Mark certified.

A+ energy rating

The A+ energy rating, combined with the energy saving characteristics of the ceramic heater, makes the Air Refresh washing machines both cost and energy efficient.
