It’s Sunday night and you just put the last load of washing in, so the kids have clean uniforms for Monday… and then you find that one school sock lying in the hall. You must have dropped it on the way to the washing machine. And you know that child only has one pair of school socks, because who would buy extra uniforms during lockdown? That’s when you turn to Samsung’s AddWash™ Front Loader. Previously, you would have pulled a face and washed the sock by hand. But now there is this fabulous new feature from Samsung.

The AddWash™ functionality on Samsung’s front loaders mean you can add forgotten clothes that didn’t make it to the machine, after the cycle has started. It also easily lets you pop in hand-washed clothes that you just want to rinse or spin dry. You can even add a special softener anytime you want. What’s more, the AddWash™ functionality allows for an intelligent way to ventilate your washing drum to ensure a fresh load of washing every time.

Eco-friendly and healthy

Front loaders with the AddWash™ functionality also have two other fabulous features: the eco-friendly ECO drum clean technology and a digital inverter motor. The drum clean technology eliminates offensive odours by eradicating contaminants from the washing machines themselves – without using detergents. This could include waste from previous washes, food, residual detergent and dirt. If left unchecked, this waste can cause up to 14 common germs and 12 types of mould to grow in a typical washer.  

A digital inverter motor ensures the washing machines are super energy efficient, make no noise and offer long-lasting performance. What’s more, the eco bubble technology, which dissolves the detergent and turns it into bubbles to penetrate more quickly, means the machine can clean clothes efficiently even at low temperatures, without the heater begin activated – saving even more energy – and protecting the fabric.


The Samsung Smart Control feature allows you to control your machine with an app on your phone. Which means you can (almost) be doing washing while you’re at work. And we don’t mean when you’re working remotely. It allows  you to monitor the cycle selections, start or pause a load, check the remaining time on a load and receive finishing alerts.

Clearly, the benefits of Samsung AddWash™ really do add up.
