Samsung Australia launch 2016 appliances, responds to your lifestyle


    After announcing their 2016 lineup of home appliances at CES in January, Samsung have finally delivered them to Australia. Their brand new Front Load Washer Dryer and Four door fridge are available now. Unfortunately the fridge with that insane 21.5″ touchscreen model didn’t make it down under.

    After reaching out to Samsung regarding the smart fridge with the big display, they said the following, leaving hope for those who want the smartest products and who aren’t so price sensitive.

    The Family Hub is still penciled in for later this year, so look forward to more fridge announcements to come.

    Samsung’s new washing machine features a special ‘AddWash’ door, that allows you to add items even though the washing cycle has already commenced. While it may not be a feature you use every single wash, it is kind of handy to have that option. Samsung say the door design of the AddWash XL was inspired by insight gained from Australians through research and development into how its appliances could respond to everyday household needs.

    Naturally any device shipping in 2016 needs to be smart and the washing machine also features Wi-Fi connectivity to allow control of the machine from your mobile devices using the Samsung Smart Home app. Other features include:

    • 8-inch, full colour, touch screen for easy navigation
    • Auto Detergent Dispense feature that releases laundry detergent based on the size of the load
    • 18 Wash cycle options including: Energy Saving, Quick Wash, Bedding, and Night Wash,
    • VRT technology to reduce noise and vibration

    Available in two sizes, the AddWash 13kg washer/7kg dryer will set you back A$1,799 RRP, or the 16kg washer/8kg dryer is A$2,999.


    The other new entrant is the updated 2016 Four Door Flex, triple-cooling refigerator, complete with water dispenser in the door, five shelves, six door pockets and one foldable shelf, to make sure you’ve got more than enough storage in the 867L capacity.

    The twin cooling plus refrigerator also offers ample storage options, with three shelves and four door pockets so consumers can store plenty of food, while the freezer comes with one shelf and two door pockets. Another great smart feature for energy saving and peace of mind, consumers can even switch off the freezer or fridge independantly while they are away on holidays.

    While Chrome has been the love child of many home appliances for many years, Samsung black layered steel certainly looks the business.


    Triple cooling technology sounds like a term dreamed up in a sales meeting, but regardless of the name, the system cools and control temperature in separate sections of the refrigerators. With three cooling engines, the refrigerator is also designed to maintain a more stable moisture and humidity level of approximately 65% to help keep perishable food fresh.

    If you want the best fridge money can buy from Samsung, the monster 867L Four Door will cost you A$5,499 RRP.
