Samsung has launched a new washing machine with 110 litre capacity and anti-vibration technology for B&Bs, small hotels, restaurants and pubs that claims to be more energy efficient, quieter and cheaper than other models.

Product details: 

Samsung's WF431 washer has a 110 litre capacity, but can be connected to a normal 13 amp power supply. It has been fitted with anti-vibration technology which can automatically adjust the balance of the drum to protect the machine if it is loaded unevenly and therefore reduces vibration and noise.

It also comes with a new 'bedding' washing cycle which enables B&Bs and small hotels to wash up to 28 bath towels at a time, or wash blankets and duvets. 


The machine uses new 'eco bubble technology' which claims to cut energy costs but deliver excellent cleaning results. It works by dissolving detergent in air and water before the wash cycle begins which penetrates fabric more quickly and evenly so operators can wash at lower temperatures but get the same results. 


£1299 excluding VAT 


The range is available in the United Kingdom via a national network of distributors and laundry equipment specialists. Visit or  for details. 

Why you should buy it:

Samsung claims the washer is up to 60 per cent cheaper than similarly sized machines from competitors and comes with a manufacturer’s two years parts and labour warranty for peace of mind. Designed for outlets with a medium amount of daily laundry, and with its claims of being quiet, it would be suitable for B&Bs and small hotels with little space and or who want to put washing on overnight.
