Before the Samsung Flex laundry pair entered our home, we had been using the same washer and dryer for the past 12 plus years. I’d been jonesing for a front-load pedestal system because I loved the sleek updated design. Our laundry room is pretty small and it’s also the pathway from our house to the garage so it gets a lot of use, and it’s always on display because our guests often enter that way, too.
When I saw how big the new Samsung 9900 Flex Duo was, I wasn’t quite sure it was going to fit in this tight space. But knowing what these machines could do, it was well worth a try. Basically what you’re getting with this pair is four machines in one – plus they can be controlled from your smartphone!
With the FlexWash™ you have two separate washers in the same unit. There is a top washer which will accommodate a small load in it’s single cubic foot of space. We’ve been using this for delicates or items that should be washed separately from other items, like that rag you soaked in bleach to clean the bathtub. The detergent goes into that triangular silicone piece in the center.
The lower washer features 5 cubic feet of space for a large load. This allows us plenty of space to launder bed covers and blankets. Short on time, but really in a pinch to get something washed? Use the Super Speed setting and wash a full load in as little as 30 minutes – 45% faster*.
The FlexDry™ also features two machines in one. Recently I washed this polyester dress of mine which would normally be a nightmare to wash but this was easy and it came out looking new without a single wrinkle. I absolutely love using the top dryer for situations like this. There is a removable tray for those items that must be laid flat to dry like delicates, sweaters, sneakers and more. Another great feature is the Multi-Steam Technology which steams away wrinkles, odors, bacteria, and static. This is sort of like having a dry cleaner in my laundry room, and I’m loving it!
If you wish to raise the machines, you may purchase the coordinating 6-inch pedestals but I recommend that you pre-measure your room and see these beautiful machines in person because they are already quite tall. We found that the pedestals would not have worked for our tiny laundry room, and our laundry baskets fit perfectly beneath the doors. One thing to note – the hinge for the washer is on the left, and the dryer on the right and cannot be adjusted. In our case we had to swap machine positions in order to make it work.
For once in my life I am able to actually keep up with the laundry thanks to the fact that I can have four loads going at once with this amazing Samsung Flex system. And by moving some things around in our laundry area, I am happy with the way they fit into our room. Thanks to P.C. Richard for a smooth and seamless transaction, delivery and installation. They even returned later on installation day when I changed my mind and decided they’d be better placed flush with the wall. Now that’s service!
