Water usage per cylce

Hi there, I'm in Asia. Last week I bought my first front loading washing machine from Samsung model WF7750S6C. As this is my first experience with a front loader, I really do not know what to expect. I was told these front loaders are efficient and save water and electricity. I was shock to find the water usage per cycle to be around 24 litres for a full load of ~7 kg wash (for either wash or rinse cycle). The manual listed the water volume (whatever they mean by that) as 60 litres. The technician came by but I do not find him convincing. I checked US Samsung website that listed most front loading machine water per cycle at 48 litres. I still suspect something is not right. Could you advise? Thank you

    But how to explain that Samsung US website citing 48 litres for all the front loader I checked? Surely the US machines cannot be twice my size? At 24 litres, my clothes in the drum barely touches the water level during a rinse cycle. Is this the way it is meant to be?

Water usage is about right. top loaders use far more and so does hand washing
only way there would be excessive water usage is if machine were overfilling

Which washing machine is better front load or top load?


Front load washing machines are better than top load money wise.

One advantage of a front loading washing machine is an increased capacity. Since there is no central agitator, the horizontally-oriented drum can hold at least 20 to 30% more clothing per load. For a large family, this could mean running only three loads in a front loading washing machine compared to five in a top loader. Fewer loads often translates to savings in utility bills and water usage.

Another advantage of a front loading washing machine is less water and detergent usage. A top loading washer must use enough water to cover the highest level of the clothes. A front loading washing machine, on the other hand, only uses enough water to cover approximately the lower third of the tub at most.

How to get rid moldy smell in LG Front loader washmachine?


There are several cleaners for front loading washers on the market, such as affresh, washer magic, smellywasher cleaner, whirlaway hot tub cleaner, and tide washer cleaner. Clean out the filter located behind the access door at the lower left front of the machine, then, if your model has a tub clean setting, use that with one of those cleaners, if not, use one of those cleaners with the longest, hottest cycle. If things were very bad, you may have to clean it twice. Now, after it is cleaned out,.....STOP USING SO MUCH SOAP ! Use only one tablespoon of HE laudry detergent per cycle, and only one teaspoon of fabric softener if you use that. (Note: Bath towels, used only to wipe off clean bodies, then tossed into the laundry are not dirty enough to require soap usage, and should never have softener used on them) The odors in your washer are caused by a build up of soap and fabric softeners on the inside of the washer's drum. Also, you may have a build up of soap or fabric softener on your clothes. Wash them again once with no soap or fab softener to rinse them out.

Wter usage per load/cycle


When set on large load, it will use close to 30 gallons of water. On the smallest load setting, it will use right around 20 gallons. This is what makes the new front load washers look so good. They average around 4 - 6 gallons per load. Have a great day.

Not enough water per load the cloths get wet but there is no water floating in the drum should there be water visible on the door?


not really...that's the point of these washers..low water usage. the clothes fall into a small puddle in the bottom over and over and rinse often.
