The new Samsung washing machine interface found on the WW90T554DAW (and on the WW90T684DLH of which it is a clone without the automatic detergent dosing system) is a great aesthetic and ergonomic success. Simple cycles are easy to program, while more demanding users will still find a host of options to set up to go a little further in the use of their washing machine. As often with Samsung, the rinsing efficiency is there, even if it is necessary to activate the “rinse more” function, which consumes water, to take advantage of it. However, we regret a little that this model is the least efficient against very encrusted stains than it is for removing detergent residues from textile fibres.

One of the main strengths of the Quickdrive WW90T986DS, namely the speed of its programs, also seems to be one of its main weaknesses. Chances are that slightly longer cycles would ensure better washing results. Admittedly, this will suffice for linen normally sold, but the most encrusted traces could not be correctly treated in spite of important energy requirements. This silent model remains pleasant to use, however, which is not negligible when it comes to laundry chores.
