Give Laundry TLC
The very best dryer I have ever owened. Everything comes out fresh and soft. The steam mode is so wonderful I don't think I will ever have to iron again!!!
Had to replace the whole computer board in our Samsung dryer just a year after we got it. Very expensive to do. Can't recommend. This is our 2nd Samsung appliance to go kaput so quickly. Not sure they have figured out the appliance world yet.
Bought this dryer about 4 months ago drys clothes fast and efficient.. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Very disappointed I was unable to get the SMART feature to work! Should be more user friendly. Lint filter is really hard to open.
Great features, very quiet and efficient, very intuitive.
I am personally a fan of some of Samsung products. I feel that they are well made even though they are not American made.
This particular model dryer is faulty. We have had ours in the Merlot color for less that three years. In that time frame, we have replaced the pulley that causes the awful chirping and grinding noise when the dryer is operating and two heating elements. I have spent enough money on repairs on this particular dryer to replace it. The repairman that came to our home the third time informed us that he repairs more Samsung appliances than any other brand. He stated that it was not due to the fact that there are more of them out there than any other brand. He advised that Samsung appliances give owners the most headaches with frequent repairs. Their phones, electronics, and televisions are great. It’s the appliances that are repeatedly breaking.
If you research online, you will find a consistent problem with a pulley wearing down after a year that causes an extremely harsh chirping an grinding noise with this model. Samsung will not warranty it even though it a $15 part and it has reportedly occurred to many owners with this model. We replaced ours a few months ago and then the heating element stopped working. We had that repaired and searched through all of the ducts for lint and debris. None was located. Our heating element went out again a month after that and it was replaced under a repairer’s warranty. The dryer was working fine and then it stopped heating a week after the third repair. All of the ducts were clean because I made sure to periodically clean them and the lint tray was cleaned after each use. Another on-line reasearch of this model dryer revealed that this is also a common problem.
With as much “technology” that is placed into his this dryer, you would think that the problems would be electronic. I have not had one electrical or electronic problem with this dryer. All of it has been mechanical. I have had dryers with little to no technology that lasted over 15 years without a single malfunction. I regret upgrading to this “high efficiency” appliance and wish that I never donated my old dryer. It was almost 15 years old and worked perfectly. Stay away from this model dryer.
Wow,I am in awe.got the washer and the dryer and can only say,WOW.quiet,great job of cleaning and drying with the slightest of water use and electric.i highly recommend these items.on sale,plus veteran discount= great price and product.
