  • Samsung
  • Stray socks will be a thing of the past with Samsung's new innovation in washing.

    Samsung's AddWash™ gives you the chance to add forgotten clothes to the washing machine, even once the wash cycle has started*. Using an extra door located in the top of the main door, AddWash™ is a painless and unique solution to an annoying problem; forgetting one item of clothing as soon as the machine starts. Simply pause the program, open the AddWash™ door and add the missing clothes or even extra detergent to your load. It even features a childlock to prevent the door opening before you want it to.

    *AddWash™ door can be opened at any time when the drum temperature is below 50°C.

Advice and inspiration

Things to consider when buying a washing machine or washer dryer


Washing machines are now available with larger capacities than ever before. They range from a standard 5 kg up to a huge 12 kg, allowing you to wash more in one go. 1 kg is roughly equivalent to one outfit – a pair of trousers, a top, underwear and socks.

Spin speed

Spin speeds vary from 1000 to 1600 rpm (revolutions per minute). Faster spin speeds leave clothes drier after a wash and reduces drying time.

Noise level

Noise levels range from 47 dB(A) to 67 dB(A). An operating noise under 50 dB(A) is similar to the hum of a refrigerator.


All of our machines are rated from A to A+++ depending on electricity consumption and water usage.

Quick wash

This feature allows you to wash a small load quickly. Some machines will wash a lightly soiled reduced load I as little as 14 minutes./p>

Latest technology

Some machines offer advanced features such as direct drive/inverter motors for quieter performance and prolonged life, and steam programmes which remove all traces of allergens and make ironing easier.

Things to consider when buying a tumble dryer


Tumble dryers are available in a range of capacities from 3 kg to 9 kg. 1 kg is roughly equivalent to one outfit – a pair of trousers, a top, underwear and socks.


Vented dryers vent warm, air through a plastic hose (sometimes supplied) to prevent condensation. A permanent vent can be fitted in an outside wall or you can hang the hose out of a window.


Condenser dryers remove moist air from the drum and cool it inside the machine. The water is collected in a tank which you need to empty when it’s full. Condenser dryers can be placed anywhere in your home as they do not need a vent.

Heat pump

Dryers with heat pump technology are the most energy efficient. They use a lower drying temperature, saving energy and maximising drying performance. They are gentle on fabrics and really quiet.

Latest technology

Some machines now offer advanced features such as sensor drying, which stops the cycle when clothes are dry. Sensor drying saves time and reduces energy consumption.


All of our machines are rated from C to the most energy efficent A+++ depending on electricity consumption.
