Weight is as important as quantity. Fill your washer only half way if items are very heavy when wet (sweatshirts, large towels, blanket) and three-quarters full with lighter weight items (washcloths, underwear, shirts).

You have not specified which model you have. See how much cubic feet (cu. ft.) your washing machine has. For example, 4 cubic feet is enough to wash 12-16 pounds of laundry, 4.5 cubic feet - up to 20 pounds of laundry. Perhaps you have one of these models of Samsung High Efficiency (HE) Top Load Washers: WA45N3050W - 4.5 cu. ft., WA50R5200AW - 5.0 cu. ft., WA50R5400AW - 5.0 cu. ft., WA52M7750AW - 5.2 cu. ft.


The maximum capacity should be displayed on the bottom right of the control panel of your washer machine.

All time select the correct program for the load. Use your manual to determine the correct load for each cycle. Ensure that the total weight does not exceed the maximum capacity for your washing machine.

The clothes should be in a very loose pile. If you have to push cloths down to make room for more, you are overloading your Samsung High Efficiency washer.
