activewash

Designed to make doing laundry easier, this Samsung Top Load washer features patented activewash which allows you to pre-treat your clothes with care. It includes a built-in sink and a water jet for a one stop solution for stain removal and pre-washing.


5.2 cu. ft. Capacity

Washer capacity has a direct impact on how much time you spend doing laundry. Larger tub size means fewer loads, and fewer loads means more time doing other things you love. With a washer capacity of 5.2 cu. ft. you can quickly wash more laundry in a single load saving you time and effort.


Super Speed

Get up to a 40% faster wash cycle* - without sacrificing cleaning performance. With Super Speed, you can quickly wash a full load in as little as 36 minutes and save over 3 hours of laundry time every week.**


AquaJet ® Deep Clean

AquaJet ® harnesses the power of high-impact water jets to gently wash your biggest loads. Its powerful spray ensures an ultra-deep yet safe wash for all your clothes.


VRT - Vibration Reduction Technology

Samsung's patented VRT - Vibration Reduction Technology reduces noise to an incredibly low level. Its innovative tub design balances heavy loads quietly and with ease. Upstairs laundry has never been less obtrusive - run your washer upstairs while your children sleep.


15 Preset Wash Cycles

Easily customize each load as needed with 15 preset wash cycles designed to tackle everything from delicate garments to heavy duty sheets and towels.


Steam Wash

Samsung's Steam Wash cycle has been engineered to improve the cleaning quality of your wash. Unlike other washers which release steam from above, Samsung releases steam from the bottom of the laundry tub, saturating every item in the load and leading to an even deeper clean with no pre-treatment necessary.


Heater and Sanitize Cycle

Washer has an internal heater and sanitize cycle that works to eliminate up to 99% of bacteria in each laundry load, so your clothes experience a deep and thorough clean.


Self Clean

For the ultimate in convenience, Self Clean technology keeps your top load washer tub fresh by removing dirt and bacteria - without the use of harsh chemicals - through a combination of soaking, pulsating and high speed spinning. Self Clean also sends reminders to clean the tub every forty wash cycles.


Swirl Drum Interior

The swirl drum interior features a unique design with smaller holes in the drum to help prevent fabrics from getting caught and damaged.


2015 ENERGY STAR ® Certified

ENERGY STAR ® rated products meet strict energy efficiency specifications set by the government. This eco-friendly and energy-efficient Samsung washer meets 2015 ENERGY STAR ® requirements.*

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Love This Washer

Submitted by ScubaKim - 3/19/2017

When my husband and I lived in Japan, washers without the agitator column were common. We planned to buy a frontload washer but once we saw the design of this washer (no agitator column so the drum is HUGE), the many features for different type of washes, the excellent reviews, and the great price, we bought this without hesitation. This is the first "smart" washer I have ever used. It really does save me a lot of time and effort. My clothes come out cleaner too. Super efficient. I would highly recommend this washer.

VERY WELL PLEASED

Submitted by SAYTHEROSARY - 3/16/2017

I REALLY LIKE MY NEW 8700 SERIES SAMSUNG WASHER AND DRYER. WASHING AND DRYING TIMES SEEM SHORTER THEN WITH MY PREVIOUS APPLIANCES. MY LAUNDRY ROOM IS LOCATED ON THE MAIN FLOOR OF OUR HOME. BOTH WASHER AND DRYER ARE VERY QUIET. THE CHIME JINGLE ON BOTH APPLIANCES WHEN A CYCLE IS COMPLETED IS SOOTHING AND ENJOYABLE TO THE EARS ,RATHER THEN A LOUD HORN OR ANNOYING BUZZ. THE RINSE/SPIN CYCLE AND SPIN CYCLE ARE VERY HELPFUL. I JUST WISH THE SOAKING SINK COULD BE REMOVED WHEN NOT IN USE ON THE WASHER I LIKE TO CHECK AND LOOK IN TO THE TUB TO SEE THAT THE CLOTHES ARE NOT TANGLING UP IN TO A BALL. A PROBLEM THAT I HAD WITH MY PREVIOUS WASHER. I AM VERY SATISFIED WITH THE DRYER AS WELL.

Quality Control

Submitted by MomWhoWashes - 1/18/2017

I've received 2 of these machines now, the first I received the delivery timing was odd and neither of us had a moment to witness the un-boxing and install. After install of the initial machine; I noticed a spotted turn knob, crookedly attached serial number sticker (on the inside lid) and a HANDWRITTEN (number/letter) notation on the bottom of the laundry detergent insert, similar to contractor notes for big project installs. I returned that one as it did not appear to be new. Took delivery of a brand new washer today, and watched the entire un-boxing of the new washer. The dial, lid, and display were all appropriately covered by plastic film, opened the lid and to my displeasure; the serial number is affixed as crooked as the first. The real clincher was removing the liquid detergent insert tray to see a HANDWRITTEN notation; yet again! **** What the heck Samsung!!! **** We purchased this to replace the recalled machine. This one better last without recalls and if there are recalls, I hope Samsung is required to give everyone a full refund. I personally have not had a problem with my Samsung washer. The inside cover at the bottom of the drum did come out about a year after use and I could not get it re-attached - but to no determent of our laundry. I received this washer today and did a load of towels on the steam cycle and my shower towel came out feeling especially fluffy and soft. I hope it cleans as well, if not better, than the recalled model. I just wish there was better attention to the small details. As an aside; the liquid laundry detergent insert tray in my recalled washer did not have a speck of handwriting on it. I find this to be a very strange anomaly. Why Samsung, why!?!

We bought this Washer because of the features, mainly a top load washer, steam, built in sink, and the stylish platinum finish. This machine does an excellent job on all jobs from lightly to heavily soiled. The washer and matching dryer are extremely stylish and are gorgeous.

Hope We Can Keep This One

Submitted by JDT47 - 12/16/2016

This washer is a replacement for our recalled 7700 model which was purchased in February 2016. We have only had it a short time but it is very similar to the recalled model, just a few more cycles and a slightly bigger tub. It is the top model rated by CR which is the reason we went with it instead of an exact replacement. Based on our experience with the recalled model this one should be very good and the few washes we have done with it show that it will be. We replaced a front load model on our original purchase which was plagued with constant mold build up even though the door was left continuously open. This one has a lot more capacity for large items and does just as good of a job at getting the clothes clean and no mold. The wife is happy.

Good very large washer

Submitted by scott00 - 12/2/2016

Thus far this washer has been great. It cleans really well and has many cycles and features. It is huge and handles lots of clothes in a single load. I might have bought the 4.8 cubic foot if I had know how much this handles. I may need to buy a bigger dryer to keep up with it. :-)

Detergent Dispenser Poor Location

Submitted by HappyWasher2 - 11/28/2016

The sink feature is nice, but it is very difficult to add detergent to the dispenser. The sink is in the way. The washer functions well, clothes clean and is quiet. Only negative is the location of the detergent dispenser.

Submitted by RedCard - 11/19/2016

Bought this washer to replace the one that was recalled. It performs well. I don't like the "glass"top. It's hard to keep clean and think it allows more noise. The capacity and features are great. The "sink"is not something I need and to me it is in the way, but some will like it.

Great customer service

Submitted by optimistic1 - 11/17/2016

First off - this washing machine chirps a happy little song when it powers up and when it finishes. No angry penalty box buzzers grouching you into continuing. It just makes me happy about doing wash. Simple pleasures. Who'd have thought... Now for some usable data - We purchased the lower featured version of this washer last year. We never had any trouble with it, though occasionally, we did have to move around heavy items to rebalance it. This may be due to improper installation, as I realized when we put in the new one that SEARS had not correctly leveled the original washer when it was initially installed a year ago. Read the instructions - it's pretty easy. As I can tell, the new one has a larger diameter damper rod. The information on the specifics of the recall are a bit difficult to figure out, so don't quote me. If I am correct, it makes sense that this could decrease the frequency of the problem. (Remember, engineer. I say decrease not fix because Washing machines spin in circles. They're all going to break eventually. Laymans terms, they probably fixed the problem.) Regardless, its safe to say that Samsung does not want to be in the business of giving away washing machines, so after the recall, we decided to re-up with Samsung because they stood behind their product and this alone is a strong indication that the machine will earn it's robust consumer reports rating.

Perfect for closet laundry rooms

Submitted by Research2Buy - 11/7/2016

We are thrilled to now double the size of laundry loads. With 4 active kids, we do a lot of laundry to say the least. I loved the basin feature especially for when we were potty training. The water spray jet feature is perfect! I use that feature with every wash. I do notice that we need to be sure to add OxyClean to the loads to ensure a better wash and pre-treating is a must. Let's face it, they don't make washing machines like they used to. Would recommend this solely on the features!

Great Washer

Submitted by RJ2001 - 11/5/2016

Love the in basket sink, but it can get in the way of reaching deep into the washer. The abundance of settings especially the deep clean is amazing when you have a large family and lots of different types of materials to wash. So far its been very gentle on clothes and no lost socks :) Be prepared to spend some time waiting on a cycle if you really want a good clean, fast cycles are just that fast, but depending on the load size may not be clean as a more thorough/lengthy cycle.

Samsung 5.2 Washer

Submitted by erj529 - 10/4/2016

So far the washer has met our expectations. It is generous in size and I really like that it tells you to the minute how long is left on the wash cycle. Clothes are coming out very clean and almost spun dry too much, but I am not complaining as the clothes dry faster. I am about 5 ft. 6.5 inches and do not have any trouble reaching the bottom of the wash tub, so if you are my height or taller it is not an issue as I read from the other reviewers. I have hit my head on the activewash bin and don't know if it is really that necessary of an addition. I would like to remove the activewash bin because it gets in the way of adding the detergent to the detergent drawer. The detergent drawer is either poorly placed or needs to have the ability to pull out further as it is not easy to pour detergent into. I'm surprised Samsung didn't notice this and should be a complaint by all reviewers. All of the available options are great though. There is an option for pretty much anything. I have had one issue with the washer. The washer was delivered with a permanent film of streaks covering the entire washer lid. I thought that it was just filthy, but the streaks and marks would not budge as much as I tried to remove them. I contacted the seller and they have ordered a new lid.

Submitted by bmd1881 - 8/23/2016

Holds plenty of clothes and really quiet during the spin cycle. The prewash sink is a great feature to get the stains out before throwing them in a full cycle. I like the self clean cycle to keep the mildew at bay. The last machine I had from a different company was a front load that constantly had mildew problems even when following all the steps to keep prevent it. Good solid design at a great price.

Stopped running in less than 5 months

Submitted by Niceday - 7/18/2016

It saddens me that a trusted brand as Samsung would have this issue and not address it. I actually like this washing machine because it's efficient and quiet. Yet in less than 5 months, the machine just stopped functioning during a wash cycle. The power comes on, all the bells and whistles sound off, but the darn thing won't spin, won't even start again even after I ended the previous cycle to restart. I only hear the sound of the machine and nothing is moving. So now, I have to deal with customer service and taking time away from work to deal with this issue.

Submitted by Jessrbellk - 7/17/2016

Love this washer! I can fit my comforter in it with ease. Love the sanitize option, my husband is a plumber and his clothes get pretty dirty. The added sink to pre-wash is the the best thing ever. The only issue I have is I am 5'4" and I have a hard time reaching the bottom to get clothes out, but this problem was solved by a step stool. Overall I am in Love with this washer and is great for people who need to do large loads of laundry. So happy we puchased this.

Sorry Charlie!

Submitted by rigdonia - 7/5/2016

I am not one to typically leave bad reviews. I am generally not hard to please and because I live with chronic illness I don't mind paying more for a product that makes my life easier. However if I had my druthers I'd buy back my old washer (and dryer) rather than use this machine. It's big, shiny, and pretty, and sings a fun little song but when push comes to shove, this machine does not live up to the hype. In fact, while it is a larger capacity than my old machine, I am forced to run smaller loads to get clothes clean. Even so, sometimes the loads still smell! In order to get them clean I add extra soap and run the longest cycles possible, adding an extra rinse and soak. This machine not only costs more at the outset but is costing me more daily in smaller loads, soap, electricity, and precious time. The little sink which sounds like a great idea really only slows down the laundry process. It doesn't save steps, it just means you can't do anything else until your item has soaked. As a mom of three I can vouch for the fact that my machine is never empty just waiting for something to soak. Don't believe the sink hype. I have used this option maybe 4-5 times in the 200+ loads of wash we have run since we bought the machine. It's a waste of space and time. Also a note for the shorter users - you will not be able to reach the bottom of the massive yet ineffective drum. I had to buy a grabber just to be able to get clothes out of the machine! It takes me three times as long to empty the machine into the dryer, but don't get me started on the matching dryer that doesn't really dry things unless I run everything on heavy duty, increasing my eco footprint drastically. Sometimes I need to run a load a second time on a timed cycle because the machine is telling me everything is dry when it is NOT. It basically argues with me. Like a teenager. I have enough of those hanging around! This is the last time I let my easily impressed husband pick the replacement machines. Buyer beware and do your research. Sorry Samsung, that's just the way it is. If I had the option right now, these machines would be GONE. Color me disappointed.

Does everything well, not happy with the spin cycle

Submitted by Washing4years - 6/16/2016

So far, it does everything well. The issue we are having is with the spin cycle. With bulky loads, it will not spin dry. For example, we put a queen size mattres pad, a set of queen size sheets, and a few clothes. It refused to spin no matter how many times I rearranged the load. After 4-5 tries, wasting water for the extra rinses etc. I had to remove the pad and do 2 separate spins. This should not be happening in a new washer, let alone one this size.

LOTS OF FEATURES AND MORE EFFICIENT

Submitted by chukoi2x - 5/15/2016

THIS WASHER has lots of great features that you can choose. I love the steam washer the most and it is energy efficient. I do not have to wait in a laundromat waiting for an hour or two every week. It saves a lot of time and can have quality time my family.

Good Washer but not for people shorter than 5.5 feet tall

Submitted by SoCalBuyer - 5/9/2016

This washer replaced a 15 year old washer. PROS - Great capacity, what was once a full load is now a 3/4 load! Washes well and has many cycles to choose from. CONS- The soaking sink interferes with pouring detergent from a large container. You have to use a cup to be able to put the detergent in the holder. I opted to just pour into the tub on top of the clothes. The soaking sink also prevents you from seeing thru the glass top, making the glass almost useless. One significant annoyance is that the washer lid is not flat, but slightly curved, which I realized after several things slid off and fell on the floor. I am 5 foot 5 inches, and I need to really stretch to get the clothes out of the bottom of the washer. The manual is not well written and organized. With all the features of this washer, it is important to read thoroughly to get the best use out of the machine. Otherwise, you will probably end up using the same setting for everything. The manual does not recommend washing area rugs because "sand" could damage the machine. I bought this machine with the large capacity so that I could do small throw rugs, so this was a disappointment.

needs more holes

Submitted by Muggzie - 5/7/2016

After using this for two days and ten loads of wash. You definitly need to run most loads on the highest spin setting to get the most water out of your cloths. My last washing machine a whirlpool spun the cloths to almost dry. I noticed that the bottom corners of the drum have no holes and this is where the cloths are the most wet. Also you might need a step stool to reach the bottom of the washer.

love the built in sink

Submitted by luvdoinlaundry - 4/29/2016

The built in soak/sink is the best thing, as well as how well the wash comes out clean.

If you are short still possible

Submitted by ShortGirl - 4/21/2016

I really wanted this washer because it included the little "dishpan/basin" where I could soak or test colors of an item. Our laundry area does NOT have a sink, so without that little dishpan/basin I would have to do soaking/ testing in the kitchen and then drip across the house. The problem is since I am short (5'2") I cannot reach an item at the very bottom of the tub. PROBLEM SOLVED: I use long rubber coated (ends) tongs. I keep them on the shelf and always have them handy! I have been completely successful using the tongs to grab items too far from my reach. I am even learning to tong (grab) with my left hand (not dominant) to increase my brain's abilities! (crossing mid-line !)

Brilliant Whites are truly brilliant!

Submitted by Joy2wash - 4/17/2016

I was never pleased with finished product when I washed whites in my previous machine. I used enhancers and always kept the whites separate, but never did I get the brilliant white I was looking for. The first load of white towels I washed in my new Samsung WA52J8700A came out looking spectacular and I found the settings to be so user friendly.

Awesome Machine!!!

Submitted by Jaminwithtech - 3/31/2016

I honestly bought this washing machine because I've bought 8 led Samsung tv's and never had one problem. When my dryer died I decided what he'll let me try Samsung appliances. Using this machine in the passed couple weeks made me want to do laudry again ease of use and build quality is top notch. The one problem I see is is for shorter folks it's gonna be hard for to reach the buttom of the drum! You might need a step stool or something. Other than that you won't have any problems with this wonderful device. Thx Samsung !!

Two broken washing machines

Submitted by RJGM - 3/29/2016

First machine I purchased in October of 2015 broke down after 4 months of gentle use. Tech misdiagnosed problem; ultimately turned out to be a damaged motor, so store replaced the machine. Second machine leaked water on the floor after 2 days. Works well now but I have zero confidence in this product going forward.
