The washing machine is built with quality and has all the functionalities you need. It is way better built than Bosch models of similar price - go and compare. However, the water drain pump noise is unbearable. It sounds broken but it is not - it is like that by design, and Samsung technician even replaced the water drain pump with the same result. To illustrate that better, you hear only the water pump when the machine works. Therefore, for me this is not a silent machine as my 10 year old Electrolux machine with standard motor sounds more quiet than this one! Complained to Samsung, they refuse to respond.
On the other hand, Ecobubble technology is great. It uses so little liquid detergent that it is unbelieveable. Really cheap to run, so the noise is acceptable I guess :)
