Instead things like Drum Clean+/Stay Clean Drawer, Samsung should have invested in keeping the drum cleaned from ‘outside’ meaning the section of drum not visible and is concealed within a cavity usually called as ‘tub’. Especially the spider arm which drives the drum. That’s where all dirt accumulates corroding the spider arm making washing machine useless. Also they need to invest in better material for the spider arm. Something which is corrosion free.

This problem is with ALL front load washing machines irrespective of brand and the price range. I have no experience with top load so no idea if its the same case with them too.

All these AI/IoT etc etc should be on top of well sorted base technology. For now its just a marketing gimmick.
