Who has not forgotten more than one to put a lost sock or some garment that we are wearing in the washing machine and we have not realized that it had to be washed? For these and many other cases, Samsung has created a new series of washing machines that incorporate an extra door on the front to quickly insert forgotten garments at any time of the cycle . This new range is called Samsung AddWash and is made up of various models, with different load capacities and other really interesting functions. We are going to review the range of Samsung AddWash washers in depth, to see what models we have available and their characteristics.
Samsung has created a series of washing machines with which it will no longer be a problem to forget something in the laundry . The new AddWash washers incorporate an extra door at the front to allow you to quickly insert forgotten garments at any time of the cycle. To be able to insert the garments we will have to press the pause button and wait 5 seconds, after this time we will open the AddWash door , close it and press the resume button. That easy. We will only have three "buts" , and that is that the AddWash function It will not be available when the internal temperature of the drum exceeds 50 degrees, if the current cycle does not support the addition of new garments or if the child lock is activated.
However, the AddWash door can not only be used to incorporate forgotten garments into the wash. It is also possible to add an extra fabric softener before rinsing to enhance its smell on the clothes, or to add clothes that we have washed by hand when the rinse and subsequent spin cycle begins.
As we mentioned, within the AddWash range we find various series and models, so we are going to review what each of the series offers us to be clear about what we will find if we opt for a Samsung AddWash washing machine .
