Just the right size for medium family. 8.5 kilo. Large array of washes unlike my old machine. Does a great wash. Much better than my previous top loader. Hold 4 peoples washing every two days with ease. Quiet while running, definitely recommend. Good price saved $100 purchasing from goodguys ebay store.

Cleans so much better than a top loader.
Not happy at first. When we saw it in the shop we plugged it in and the display said 1:04h to do a cotton wash which is fast. We got it home and when it weighs a full load it recalculates and takes 2:58h to complete the full load wash. This is crazy, how does it take this long? Has to go back tomorrow.
It’s a shame because it’s a good looking machine that feels very well built.
We bought it because the Qdrive was supposed to be very fast and the addwash feature was very handy. It has lots of modes, plus steam and bubblesoak which all sou...
Good machine, with lots of options.
I was apprehensive about going from a top loader to a front loader due to renovations and space constraints. The cycles don't seem to take that much longer, but I like the option of the fast 15 minute wash. Also happy with the add wash door. Having 2 small children I am forever finding socks and clothes around the house just as I've started a cycle. The add wash door allows me to add these items in without having to wait for the next load. Also loving the wash to dry option. This simply means that I can have clothes washed and dried in the one ...cycle without having to touch anything. I haven't tried the WiFi start yet, but it's handy to get the notifications once the load has finished. I use the delayed start time feature more than the WiFi start. Bonus points for the little jingle that plays once the cycle has finished. My kids love to do a little dance to it every time!
Was hesitant at first as we had a front loader before. Excellent machine with 15 minute fast wash, can open door during cycle and it has a small door also. Has agitator at the back and sides. We have recently upgraded from a popular brand top loader and would never go back. The only issue is that they don’t sell a pedastel for this model.

WiFi not working and not customer support
WiFi not working (It says I don't have permission and it's already registered in a different region) I purchased the WiFi option because of my busy work schedule, and being able to start it before returning home so I'm able to hang the clothes out before they start to smell. I Contacted Sumsang, no return phone call after they advised they'd get back to me within 48 hours with a resolution. I rang back a week later and they gave me the same responce , I rang the retailer and they replaced it after Samsung wouldn't respond to them either. Same i...ssue and there's now a defect in the plastic. I wouldn't recommend Samsung washing machine WW85M74FNOR - 8.5KG Front load washer Due to 2 faulty machines, terrible customer service and a cheap product with expensive price tag.
Noisy At First but Still Worth It.
Upgraded our old Samsung which is still going strong 20yrs on and the youngest has it now! This one was noisy at first which we were upset about, but we thought give it a chance, glad we did after about 6/7 washes the noise went. The washes are as always superb. The Add Door is a great advantage as well as the gentle reminder to clean the drum. Hopefully it lasts at least as long as the last one :)
TERRIBLE NOISY WASHING MACHINE
I bought this machine being the cream of the crop, It should come with a warning sticker on it that it is a noisy machine. I rang them after the first wash. It is louder than my old 20 year old front loader, I have had Samsung out and a part has been replaced, even the serviceman said it was loud, but it is still loud, a real buzzing noise that you can hear 3 rooms away. I have had no satisfaction from customer service, as apparently because it washes your clothes it is within the specifications of the machine. I would not recommend this machine to my worst friend, do yourself a favour do not buy
