Samsung WD8704RJA

With a 7kg stainless steel drum, the Samsung WD8704RJA is a washer-dryer with a lot of room for clothes. More than simply a spacious utility, however, the Samsung combo machine features a vast array of technical capabilities ensuring that your washing is cleaned and dried to the highest standard and protected all the way.

For example, the Samsung WD8704RJA features a clothes smell refresher that will release flows of heated, clean air designed to remove any persistent smells from deep within fabric, making clothes feel and smell brand new. On top of this, AIR refresh means that you can dry-clean almost everything at home, which should save you time popping to the dry cleaners with the air cleaning features meaning you can clean more delicate items like wool without having to worry about them being damaged.

Capable of cleaning effectively with cold water, the Samsung WD8704RJA will allow you to wash at lower temperatures, subsequently saving you money on your energy bills. This is just one of the many reasons the Samsung WD8704RJA has an A* energy efficiency rating.

Another is the fact that with AIR refresh you don’t need to use any detergents, which are harmful for the environment — and if you don’t need to use them you don’t need to spend any money buying them. By not using chemicals on the clothes they will stay brighter and like new for longer and you don’t have to worry about them irritating sensitive skin.

Using AIR refresh clearly has lots of benefits, and it might be the best idea for the Samsung WD8704RJA because if you use it as a traditional washer dryer it takes an absolute age to complete a cycle. With drying times running so long — if you set it to wash and dry it can take a whole four hours – it is a good thing the AIR refresh function cleans so well.

Other nifty features are the water safety system that stops water leaks at the source, the secure door system that means you get a tight door fit every time and the child-proof safety system that stops inquisitive hands from disrupting the wash mid cycle.
