Yes,
Samsung has VRT (Vibration Reduction Technology) This system balances loads so there is not the vibration problem that other front loaders have.

I have a steam pair and I use the steam cycle in the dryer for this. The refresh cycle works better sometimes than the wrinkle cycle depending on the garment and type of fabric.

Question

Can the Samsung silver steam washer do a very small load? Such as a few delicates?

I have heard that the newer HE front load washers will not wash just a few delicates or just one pair of shorts, etc? Is this true with the Samsung?

All washers are intended for use that utilizes all or (in some cases) none of its capacity. You can wash one sock or a king size comforter in the WF448. Or if you are just using your "Silver Care" cycle for the mold prevention, you don't have to put any clothes in. Hope that helps! Love and happy washing!!!!

Question

Pet Hair

Does it remove pet hair from clothing? I have 3 cats and my current washer just can't keep up and they come out with just as much as they went in with.

Though Samsung does not make any specific claims about the ability of our washers to remove pet hair, we do have features which would seem to lend themselves to that goal. The steam feature in the WF448 helps to loosen the fibers in fabrics to release dirt and stains, and the debris filter can be accessed from the front of the machine for easy cleaning. Many people find that some time in the dryer removes most of what remains of pet hair after the wash. Most garments that can't take the heat of the dryer may still benefit from Air Fluff to remove pet hair and lint.

Just like any washing machine whether it be top load or front load, the door or lid should be open a bit when not in use to allow air to evaporate the excess water. I use a 6" block of a 2x4 to prop the door open a little bit.
Now there is a feature on many Samsung washers called "SilverCare" or "ActivFresh" which kills 99.9999% of mold and bacteria not only in the clothes, but also that may be on the tub. That's an option that can be run with or without a load of clothing inside.
If you're not satisfied with that, Whirlpool makes a product called Affresh that also cleans the tub. That product CANNOT be used with clothing inside the tub.

This item is stackable. The advantage to the steam setting is that is loosens soils and dirt cleaning your cloths as if it has gone through seven differant cleaning cycles leaving your clothes looking and smelling better.

Question

What is the total height when this washer is installed on the pedestal?

According to the product description, the pedestal is 15" but it's specifications indicate a 14" height. Is the discrepancy due to feet or levels used to balance the machine on the pedestal?

With the pedestal feet lowered all the way, the overall height is a shade over 52". The MAX height for the pedestal feet is an extra inch which is probably why it says 15".

Power cords are hard wired into the washer unit. (most cases) BUT! Dryers on the other hand do not have power cords. Around the year 1995 building codes changed and the 3 prong power cord became 4 pronged due to a 'grounding' prong. So manufacturers will not include a power cord with a dryer since they don't know which kind of customer will buy their product. Next there is washer hoses. Samsung (unlike Whirlpool/Maytag and some GE models) still include rubber hoses, but I always suggest the customer get the stainless steel braided hoses. (They have less tendency to burst when under pressure) Hope that helps! Happy washing and drying!!!!!

For the steam on the dryer, the y-connector and the rubber hose is included. For the washer your given the manufacturer's rubber hoses as well. Most people will upgrade however to stainless. Better quality hose, meaning less chance of leakage.
