May 9, 2007 If your washing machines often makes more noise than mating walruses, you’ll be pleased to hear that at long last there’s a solution for the vibration and noise caused by unbalanced loads during the spin cycle. Samsung’s new Vibration Reduction Technology (VRT) washing machine is claimed to be the quietest ever during the spin cycle. The new VRT Washing Machine can be seen for the first time at the 2007 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (K/BIS) this week in Las Vegas.

The extra-large capacity laundry machines also include Samsung’s SilverCare technology which is a great option for removing odor-causing bacteria from colors and delicates in cold water without bleach. It helps keep garments looking their best by minimizing fading and the tattering effects of hot water. The VRT Washing Machine is available in Tango Red, Onyx Blue, Stratus Gray and Neat White at US$1,300 and can be stacked on top of or alongside the paired dryer in the same colour.

"In tests involving unbalanced loads, Samsung’s VRT machines proved to have both the lowest vibration and noise level of the front-loading washers tested," said Jeff Armstrong, Senior Marketing Manager of Home Appliances at Samsung.

While the washer reduces noise and vibration, it does not skimp on power with a 1,300 RPM maximum spin speed during final spin and achieving better than 2.3 MEF, which is designated by the Department of Energy as "Tier 3," the highest level of Energy Star.
