Samsung Electronics has announced a revolutionary new washing machine technology, QuickDrive, which is now widely available in Ireland.
At the heart of the WW8800 washing machine is Samsung’s exclusive QuickDrive technology, which provides consumers with the power to cut the time it takes to do laundry in half. On its cotton setting, a daily load of laundry completes in just 66 minutes, offering consumers the time-saving solution they always wanted but never had, without compromising washing performance or energy efficiency.
As well as cutting laundry times, Samsung’s QuickDrive technology also reduces energy use by 20 per cent. Its unique drum consists of a large main drum and a pulsator in the back that rotates independently. Unlike conventional washing machines that move clothes repeatedly up and down during the course of the cycle, the WW8800 moves clothes from top to bottom in the drum, and the pulsator in the back of the drum introduces a back and forth movement of the water flows. It creates a revolutionary dynamic action that quickly, gently and thoroughly removes dirt, delivering an intense and complete wash cycle.
Throughout the washing cycle, QuickDrive offers a range of smart and convenient features. The IoT-ready WW8800 boasts a smart management system, which provides three key smart features that help manage laundry more conveniently.
These include a ‘Laundry Planner’ that enables consumers to manage a laundry finishing time, freeing them to control their schedule on their own terms. The ‘Laundry Recipe’ makes recommendations for optimal wash cycles based on information such as colour, fabric type, and degree of soiling inputted by the user, eliminating the need for guessing about which cycle is best. The ‘HomeCare Wizard’ monitors washing machine activity and gives users tips to help them to keep the machine in perfect operating condition.
The WW8800 also comes with Samsung’s innovative AddWash door, a feature that gives users the ability to add items at any time during the cycle. From a stray sock you missed to a hand-washed garment for final rinsing that needs to go in later in the cycle, AddWash even allows users to add detergent or fabric softener at a later time. The combination of these smart features and AddWash creates a synergistic effect that further enhances the user convenience, simplifying the laundry process.
Higher durability and cost-efficiency
Finally, the WW8800 is designed for long-lasting performance. Equipped with Samsung’s Digital Inverter Technology, the WW8800 gives users long-lasting, reliable performance, with less noise, vibration and wear and tear.
For peace of mind, all the QuickDrive washing machines come with an additional added warranty of up to 11 years on the top of the range WW8800 models and five years on the WW6800 models.
The Samsung QuickDrive is available to purchase from retailers including DID Electrical, Powercity, Harvey Norman, Appliances Delivered and Currys nationwide. Pricing starts from €999 and is subject to individual retailers.
