Sanitize NSF Sanitize Cycle - Certified by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) P172 Protocol to effectively sanitize clothes. Reduces 99.9% of microorganisms and ensures there is no significant carryover of bacteria into future loads.
Allergen No Allergen Certification - The WF395BTPAWR is not certified by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) or the Asthma & Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) to reduce allergens such as dust mite and dander with high temperature water.  
Auto Temp Control - Automatically regulates the hot and cold water supply to ensure that the wash water is at the proper temperature for the cycle selected. On cold winter days the hot water runs longer or more often to compensate.
Heater Internal Water Heater - Includes an internal water heater that can boost water temperature beyond your home's hot water tank. Helps maintain optimum temperatures throughout each cycle. Hot water is the key to really getting your clothes clean.
Automatic Water Level - Designed with sensors that detect the load size and then adjust the water level to achieve the best cleaning and rinsing performance. Convenient feature that eliminates guessing and saves water costs.
Drum Stainless Steel Wash Drum - Stainless steel is a durable wash basket material that resists corrosion, stains, and chipping. It is superior to porcelain or plastic. Over 90% of new washers produced today have stainless steel drums.
Vibration Added Vibration Control - The Samsung WF395BTPAWR is advertised to have advanced features to help control vibration and related noise. Details of these anti-vibration features are not readily available and the true effectiveness is unknown.

Convenience Ratings

Settings 15 Temp-Soil-Spin Settings - 5 Temperature, 5 Soil, and 5 Spin settings. Higher than average number of settings for these key items on a new washer. More settings provide added flexibility for a wide range of fabrics, stains, and conditions.
28 Minute Quick Wash - In a hurry? Forget to wash a garment for today's special event? This washing machine has a fast wash cycle that can have your clothing ready in much less time than regular cycles.
Wash-Dry No Overnight Wash & Dry - Like most washers, this model does not have the unique capability to both wash and dry your clothes overnight. A few washers can continue to tumble the clothes and circulate drying air after the wash cycle has ended.  
No Drum Light - There is no internal lighting of the wash drum area when loading or unloading clothes. Sometimes shadows or an unlit laundry room can hide a stray sock that remains missing until the next wash cycle.

Wi-Fi No Wi-Fi - This washing machine is not Wi-Fi Enabled or Wi-Fi Ready. It cannot be remotely programmed, operated, or diagnosed through a home Wi-Fi Internet connection or Smartphone. It is not Smart Grid or Smart Meter capable.  
No Detergent Reservoir - Like most washers, this machine does not have a reservoir that holds a large supply of detergent. A Few brands such as GE, Maytag, and Whirlpool offer new washers with multi-day detergent and fabric softener storage.  
No Reversible Door - Like most front load clothes washers, the door is fixed and cannot be changed to open from the other side. Only a few brands such as Electrolux and Kenmore offer washers with reversible door capability.  
Stackable Stackable - Front load washers can be stacked vertically with a companion front load dryer. If you have a small laundry area this is a very convenient feature. It also places the dryer at shoulder level for easier loading.
