Having a variation of wash cycles is one of the standout features of the Samsung WF45R6300AV, with 12 preset washing options and nine additional options to enhance your cycle. Combined with 4.5 cubic feet of capacity, this machine would be a good fit for families or people who often have a mountain of washing to get through. 

The standout feature of this machine is its steam cleaning function, which allows you to eliminate tough stains without the need for a pre-wash treatment. Applied to every cycle, the steam that’s released is fully saturated through each item of clothing so that they emerge sparkling clean. This model is also available with a matching pedestal to reduce back strain and make the machine more accessible. It easily earns its place among our list of the best front load washers … but you do have to pay a lot for it.
