Samsung's Bespoke Fridge - Affordable Custom Colors!

Posted by Meredith Czymmek on Jan 19, 2021 12:07 PM 

 

Since I began researching and writing about appliances in 2017, I've come to categorize Samsung as a brand that does a very good job at noticing new features that other brands are doing well and putting their own spin on them. Combine this ability to quickly implement relevant new features with their crazy markdowns during holiday sale periods, and it's no surprise that they've become a major player in the US appliance market.

Quiet Washing Machine - How to Find a Quiet Model

Posted by Meredith Czymmek on Nov 13, 2020 9:00 AM 

 

More and more, consumers are interested in finding appliances with quiet operation. Noisy refrigerators, dishwashers, and laundry appliances can be especially intrusive in apartments, or homes with open floor plans. If you have a second-floor laundry room or laundry closet, a quiet washing machine might be crucial for your sanity!

Normal sounds in new washing machines include clicking and humming, gurgling or running water sounds as the washer fills and drains, and the sound of the basket spinning up and down in short or long bursts. One of the major factors tied to noise reduction is vibration reduction - the two go hand in hand! Although it's unlikely that you'll find decibel levels for most washing machines (unlike with dishwashers, where there is plenty of competition to be the quietest dishwasher), there are several key features you can look for from different brands that will help you find quiet washing machine models.
