On top of the rest of the technology that has gone into this machine, Samsung has worked hard at making the WW9000 as quiet as possible. It uses Samsung’s VRT-M technology, which has a three-way vibration sensor, which keeps the drum balanced, by spinning 14 ball bearings in the opposite direction. The result is a lot less vibration, cutting out the shudder and thuddering that you get with most washing machines when they spin up and slow down. As a result the washing machine is rated at 72dB during spin and just 46dB when washing. That’s remarkably quiet, particularly for such a load machine. In our lab we didn’t notice any particularly annoying noises or vibrations.

There’s no denying that this is the most technologically advanced washing machine that we have ever seen. The touchscreen makes it incredibly easy to configure, but it’s brilliant that you can also turn it on and operate it from anywhere using your smartphone. We love the new way of dispensing detergent and fabric softner, too, as once you’ve filled up your machine for the month, washing clothese becomes a lot less hassle.

Cleaning performance remains consistent from other Ecobubble washing machines that we’ve reviewed, too, delivering good results at low temperatures. Running costs are also impressive, with some of the lowest yearly costs we’ve seen; however, it’s important that you fill this machine up as much as possible to benefit from these costs, otherwise you’re paying money to move a large drum that you’re not really using.

There’s one thing that’s pretty hard to get away from, though, and that’s the price. This is by far the most expensive washing machine that we’ve ever reviewed. As to whether it’s worth it, it will come down to what you want. If you want the best technology, remote control and the brilliant dispenser, then there’s nowhere else to go and you will absolutely love this machine. If you won’t use the full capacity and can do without the phone control, the older, but still brilliant Samsung Ecobubble WF90F7E6U6W is still available for around £1,000 less.

That said, it’s hard to put a price on technology and with the lack of fiddly controls and its bright touchscreen, the WW9000 isn’t just technologically advanced, it’s also rather fine to look at. For many, that’s enough and this machine firmly deserves its Recommended award.
