Thanks for the question. The WF405 washer does have the steam feature, but Steam Refresh, specifically, is an option available on some Samsung dryers, including the DV405 model. Steam in washers is used for deep cleaning and stain removal, while dryers use it to release wrinkles and remove odors.

Question

Water temperature settings

I have looked online and in the manual, called support, and tried chat support, but I cannot find any information about the temperature settings on my washer. What exactly do they mean? If I select Hot - why does it mix/cycle with cold? What is the difference between Warm and Eco warm? What are the rinse temperatures for each setting?

I'm sorry to hear you've had difficulty finding the information you're looking for. The target temperature ranges for the WF405 are 105°-125°F for Hot, 85°-105°F for Warm, 66°F for Eco Warm, and 60°-85°F for Cold (this information has been updated as of January ’13). The standard rinse temperature for all cycles is cold.

It isn't unusual for the washer to draw both hot and cold water during the fill process as it measures the temperature, particularly when warm or cold is selected. I would suggest reviewing the information on page 36 of the User Manual in the Troubleshooting section entitled "Fills with the wrong temperature water" for tips to help address this. If you've selected Hot water and cold water is entering the machine, it's possible the hoses are switched or the water in your hot water pipe is cold from lack of use. Try running a nearby hot water faucet to flush the lines before starting a wash cycle.

If you continue to have cold water entering the washer when Hot is selected after checking the troubleshooting tips, please call 888-BEST BUY or 800-SAMSUNG to speak with an agent who will be happy to assist you further.

Question

Reference to previous question regarding Eco warm

I'm confused. Why would the Eco warm temp (59degrees) be LOWER than the cold cycle (60plusdegrees)? That makes no sense to me. Shouldn't the cycle be called extra cold? What's the purpose of the Eco warm cycle?

Information regarding the temperature of the Eco Warm setting has been updated. The correct goal temperature for Eco Warm is 66°F rather than 59°F. We appreciate your eagle eye and continuous inquiry in making sure that the information you were seeking is correct.

Question

WF405ATPAWR/AA is matched with DV393ETPAWR?

I want to buy washer and dryer.
I decided to buy washer WF405ATPAWR/AA.
I know the matched dryer with the washer is DV405ETPAWR/AA.
But I want to buy DV393ETPAWR because I love the specifications of this dryer.
I want to check if the WF405ATPAWR/AA and DV393ETPAWR are matched and they are also stackable.

Thanks.

Question

How Speed Spray works?

There are two Speed Spray outputs in the washer, but only the right one works. Is this normal?
If yes, what is the left one for?
Also, there is a small output in the middle that just throws water on the glass. Why's that?

Thanks for the question. The WF405 has several nozzles that are visible at the top of the doorway, three of which are relevant to SpeedSpray and Steam. SpeedSpray uses a nozzle on the left during the wash cycle to spray water containing dissolved detergent into the clothes; the nozzle on the right sprays clean water during the rinse cycle. The small middle nozzle is used during Steam cycles. At times it may be difficult to actually see the water or steam spraying from the nozzles depending on the amount of soapy water or clothing that's pressing against the glass.

Question

comparing samsungs WF405ATP versus WF511 Front loader

The specs say the 405 has a 2nd rinse and the 511 has not? The 405 has the extra speed spray? does that mean more efficient, less wash time and is the speed spray on every wash and rinse cycle? I'm hoping the VRT & VRT Plus that either one would be beneficial having on the 2nd floor (on linoleum). I was just concerned on how many rinse cycles each machine went through.

Thanks for the question. Samsung’s new SpeedSpray technology saves time by shortening wash times while still keeping all portions of the washing process and getting your clothes clean. SpeedSpray is activated in Normal, Bedding PLUS, Deep Steam, Stain Away and Eco Cold cycles. Both the WF405 and WF511 offer the Extra Rinse option, and both VRT and VRT Plus are very effective in reducing noise and vibration, including upstairs.

Question

Washer depth specifications

The depth listed for the white version of this model is deeper than the platinum version. I can't find the white version on the Samsung website to check. If you look up the owner's manual for this model number, the depth matches what is listed for the platinum model. Is this an error or are they different?

Thanks for the question. The actual depth of the WF405 washer is 32-1/4" (rounded to 32.3" in the manual) regardless of the color. The 34" measurement may be referring to the required depth when installing the unit on a pedestal.

Thanks for your interest. While Vibration Reduction Technology (VRT) is highly effective in reducing vibration, even on the second floor, VRT Plus employs new sensor technology to make the machine even quieter. To determine which model best suits your needs, consider the location of your laundry room and sturdiness of the flooring, along with other features such as capacity, cycles and options that may be important to you.
