Efficiency

Even if you buy this Samsung on sale for $950, it'll still cost you. Cycles vary widely in how much they cost to run, but there's one constant here: They're all very expensive. The total cost of operating the Samsung WA5471ABP for a year is near $90, which is more than three times what the most energy efficient washers we've tested cost.

Performance

If the Samsung WA5471ABP were the best washer we'd ever tested, we'd say it was worth the money. But it's middling on nearly all accounts. A few standout cycles don't make up for a nearly $300 price difference between the Samsung and its mid-range competitors.

Features

Despite its drawbacks, the Samsung's features are still pretty impressive. There are twelve preset cycles plus a number of custom wash options for the most finicky washing fanatics. If money is no object and you take delight in reading the labels on all of your clothes so you can follow wash instructions exactly, we've found the machine for you.
