So I own the Bosch Exxcel 8 VarioPerfect washing machine and had it for around 5 years, it has been a great machine, I have over the years replaced motor brushes to soften ones as the washing machine use to sound like a jet engine, also replaced front drum to door seal and replaced drive belt.
The Bosch Exceel is starting to show its age, now goes for little walks on heavy loads and doors handle rattles like there in no tomorrow.
So I am going to purchase the SAMSUNG ecobubble WW90J5456FW/EU 9 kg from Curry’s, £450 (£150 reduction) and has the Digital Inverter drive, so no more noisy drive motor bushes.
Has anybody else have one of these, are they any good?

Well my Samsung ecobubble WW90J5456FW arrived yesterday and is now plumbed in, the washing machine looks most elegant in my kitchen and is so much quieter than my old Bosch washing machine.
So far used the Daily wash and 15 minute wash and spins very smoothly, in fact, the noisiest part of the wash cycle is not the final spin but the rather loud water drainage pump during the different cycles, which is rather annoying, also when wash is completed, the washing machine plays a little tune (sad but true). I am going to have to change that ASAP ;-)
But given the price, a good choice was made.

Update on my Samsung Ecobubble WW90J5456FW washing machine, it now makes the rest of my kitchen look old but the washer is still working very well, lovely and quite, no problems and washes very well.
Occasionally a sock gets caught in the door lip, so does not spin dry, but that’s about it, a lovely machine and it is good to be able to talk in the kitchen area whilst the washing machine is running ;-)

As an update some 5 month later, my Samsung washing machine has developed a screeching noise when the drum rotates slowly , turning the drum by hand also creates the same noise, it is almost like rubber being dragged across Glass type noise, most annoying at very low revs, but noise does disappear once drum spins at higher/full speeds.
I have contacted Samsung support and got the usual “make sure washing machine is level etc. etc. and now awaiting feedback after informing Samsung support that the recommendations did not work.
As you can see in attached video, I removed the rear cover of the washing machine and videoed rear of the drum and the screeching noise.

I wouldnt buy a washing machine (and similar or in kitchen) from Asian production.
So I stay with my Miele and be happy for >>10 years.
Sure there are others too from EU with good quality, yes more pricey, but less hassle.
Remove belt, then you should or may be able to localize where it is coming from turning by hand.July 2, 2019 at 4:43 pm #3527

I understand what you mean regarding Asian production, when I was purchasing my new Washing Machine, I was concerned how Brexit would effect Support/Warrenty in the years ahead, hence why I looked for appliances outside of the EU.
Funny thing is my Samsung Washing machine has a label on it saying ‘made in Poland’ ;-)
It will be interesting to see what Samsung support say if they visit my machine because the machine is still in Warranty ?

As an update, had Samsung Engineer visit my washing machine today and confirmed noise was indeed Bearing related, they have ordered new Drum and Tub (one unit) under warranty and are back next Thursday 1st August to fit new Drum and Tub assembly.
They took there time but good news (hopefully) at long last ;-)

The Samsung Engineer returned last week and replaced the Drum and Tub, washing machine has been running for a week and no screeching noise.
Relieved Samsung customer I am once again and all work undertaken via warranty (no cost), only my time wasted ;-)

Hope with you that it will last longer now till noise comes back again ;-)August 6, 2019 at 7:53 pm #3660
Har har, but true, time will tell ;-)
Update: As a follow up, Samsung washing machine vibrates sounds dreadfull and went for walks on heavy loads, after a lot (many hours) of tinkering, I found the best option was to use an Anti Vibration Mat like the one in the link below as we have a tiled kitchen floor and is very slippery for that Samsung washing machine.
I did try three different types of rubber feet for the washing machine, but the mat worked very well, also just to note, make sure washing machine drain pipe end is at least 50-60cm from floor level as this cuts out a lot of water pump noise.
Washing machine on occasions leaks water via Door/Drum seal and this is usualy because a little bit of hair/lint is trapped between door and drum seal (not good) and way to pedantic.
But the Samsung washing machine looks modern, Washing is excellent and the controls options are superb

Ok, so original washing machine mat actually fell apart (crumbled) after a few months (to much sunlight), so have finally found an alternative which seems to have lasted and looks rather funky
About £9 from Screwfix, so have a matching set to match my Samsung washing machine and heat pump dryer
