Samsung offers 20-year warranty for digital inverter technology


Samsung’s vision for sustainable solutions at home includes reducing waste by extending the lifespan of its appliances through reliability and sustainable solutions based on durability. This allows the company offers a 20-year warranty for the digital inverter technologies in its washer, dryer and refrigerator.

As Samsung explains, «digital inverter technology is an essential core component of the appliances they power. Built on more than 25 years of research and development, DIT affects everything from energy efficiency to performance as well as the durability of major appliances such as refrigerators and washing machines. As such, protecting the integrity of this core component, with a 20-year warranty, extends the use period of appliances, offers peace of mind for users through reliability and reduces environmental waste».

In washing machines, the DIT comes in the form of a digital inverter motor (DIM) used to spin and pulsate the drum of the washing machine during laundry cycles. «Samsung’s decades long research and expert engineering mean that its DIMs are more advanced in several aspects compared to ones found in traditional washers» – the company adds. Samsung’s digital invertors provide more precision and power while producing less noise and vibration.

In refrigerators, instead, digital inverter technology takes the form of digital inverter compressors (DIC) that act as the heart of the unit, circulating cold air throughout the compartments. Samsung’s DIC intelligently adjusts its power depending on circumstances instead of just turning on and off.
