Samsung Eco Bubble Washing Machine Slammed In Reviews

A Dutch consumer magazine has given Samsung Electronics' new drum washing machine a scathing review casting doubt on the firm's claims for a new technology.

Samsung's Eco Bubble washing machine slated in reviews

Samsung says its Eco Bubble 8 kg washing machine creates bubbles that boost performance and reduce energy consumption by up to 70 percent, but Consumentenbond says that comes at an unacceptable price.

It says the washing machine cleans laundry no better than any other, and the water heats up to just 31 degrees Celsius when set at 40 degrees. It also casts doubt on Samsung's claim that a normal washing cycle at 40 degrees Celsius equals the new machine's 15-degree washing cycle.

Consumentenbond says because of excessively short washing time and just two rinsing sessions, the machine does not wash clothes properly. By and large clothes are cleaned relatively well, but stained and dirtier clothes do not benefit.

The U.S. magazine Consumer Reports, meanwhile, says the famous bubbles have no advantage whatsoever.

Samsung claims its own tests show that the temperature goes up to 37 degrees when set at 40 degrees, and that the magazine admits that the five degrees difference "are within the margin of error." It adds the superior quality of its drum washing machines has been recognized by various certified bodies including the VDE Institute in Germany, and German consumer magazine TEST recommended the product along with Bosch and Miele in its October edition.

We'd have to largely agree and say that some of the claims being made are, to be frank, pretty ludicrous and when we quizzed Samsung and asked for evidence and test results to prove the energy use claims they failed to provide them. In addition the claims being made about the load capacity seem somewhat inflated with no actual drum capacity given other than a "claimed" kilogram load figure.

Of course if you have a broken Samsung washing machine you can find someone to repair if on our engineer search.

Had my samsung washer now for five years, it has been fantastic, so quiet, reliable and washes great at 30 degrees.

Ecobubble 9kg washer is great
When my top.of.the.line Cylinga needed new bearings after 10 years of daily use, I read all the reviews and chose the Samsung Ecobubble 9 kg washing machine because it had a lot of positive reviews. I love this machine. It gets even the dirtiest laundry sparkling clean. For the people who claim it didn\'t clean their laundry, then they did not use the proper cycle. Each cycle has various options and you have to choose the correct one. For example, the heavy duty clean cycle has 4 rinses if you wash at 95 C. It doesn\'t take any longer than other quality washers. For laundry that isn\'t very dirty and you just want to quick wash, there are cycles for that was well. I doubt these negative reviews. The Samsung gets laundry very clean - even laundry soiled by animals - and I wouild buy another one if I ever had to replace the one I own.

try turning the power off, don\'t forget to remove the back screws that keep the drum still during transit, and also which is important: the machine needs to be calibrated before use, this is a very important thing to do! To calibrate the machine, read the instruction manul thouroghly first. I still can\'t get used to the machine hardly using any water during washes, I wish there was a way to program it to use more water than the factory set level.

The 3e code appears to be the fault with our machine which says is the motor! Samsung will not fix it even though it supposed to have a 10year warranty on the motor ( our machine is 26 months old) we have been conned customer service are a waste of time the warranty is not worth the paper it is written on.

If you purchased the washer by card under the sales of goods act you can go back to where you bought it. I have just spoken to Trading Standards and have been told the supplier has to repair replace refund within 6 years.

Samsung EcoBubble 9kg PCB
My Samsung EcoBubble 9kg started showing error code E3 and stopped spinning intermittently. I would calibrate the machine, as instructed in the user manual and it would start again and work for a while. It was only just out of warranty when I rang Samsung. After numerous calls, going through what the problem could be, I was advised to call my local Samsung repairs department. After checking the machine, I was told it was the PCB. I\'ve been without a washing machine now for almost two months and I am waiting for an engineer to come back to fit the PCB, which will cost me just under £200. I originally paid £449 for this machine thinking it would be good quality - how wrong I was. I have bought machines in the past that have been around £200 which have lasted around 5 years. I will never buy Samsung again.
