Ready to Wear
Easy and Efficient
I love everything about this dryer except that it doesn't allow me to turn off the Eco Dry function. I have 4 very active kids and a husband that works and coaches. I do 14 loads of laundry every Monday to keep up moving. When we first got the machine Eco Dry came on as a default, so when suddenly it was coming on every time I turned on the machine I thought someone had accidentally pressed something. I guess, according to Samsung, it was always supposed come on when Normal Dry is chosen and is a default setting. Samsung says, "Eco dry will add drying time, but save money." Well, as you can imagine, I don't want to add time when doing 14 loads of laundry. My complain is this: I didn't have to remember to turn it off when it wasn't automatically coming on and now that it is, I don' think about it turning it off, making my drying time longer than I want.I should be able to change the setting so it stays off all the time and I can't. With all of the bells and whistles on this thing having a little more control. My only other issue is the one others have mentioned... the wifi and app don't work. Oh - and one more issue. The done "BELL" is WAY too long. It's a song. I wish it had a middle option, one between a 15 second song and totally off. It is huge and dries well. 5 stars if I had control over Eco Dry. (I'd give it 5 stars even if the wifi/app never worked if I could take the Eco Dry default off!)
This Samsung FlexDry is a wonderful piece of art and technology. Excellent product for all families especially when you have little kids at home that continue to need nearly daily washing/drying. the top dryer is wonderful for their small clothes and the other dryer fits what the rest of the family needs. it works fast and nearly silent. aesthetically it looks wonderful and complements the looks of a nice residence. Large capacity and a great money saver, fits large items easily and the quality of drying is the best. Highly recommended.
First impressions are key and this dryer hits a home run. The FlexDry dryer has a large drum that will take anything and everything you can put it in. The delicate upper dryer is great for smaller items that risk damage in the main drum.
The various modes take the guesswork out of choosing heating level and time and the breadth of options ranging from towels, to bedding, permanent press, and steam refresh all serve their purpose in a household of five. The steam cycles are great for dress shirts that need a quick sprucing up. The Wrinkle Prevent feature is great for the situations where you won't be around to promptly remove items from the dryer that risk wrinkles if left in. The bright LED light provides ample brightness to ensure that the smallest of infant clothing isn't forgotten, which is great. One discovery, Eco dry is on by default when selecting the Normal mode and adds a bit of time however it runs at a lower energy consumption.
The smartphone app works well for keeping track of the status, however it would be great if the gas variant of the dryer could also be controlled from it. Installation was a breeze and took very little time or effort at all. For a family of five where several loads of laundry are run each week, this FlexDry dryer is a workhorse. It is well worth it's cost and this one can't be beat.

After spending a month with the Samsung Gas flexdry dryer, I must say it's been rock solid. It's handled everything we've thrown at it, and then some. It can easily dry a king sized comforter + sheets without any residual dampness afterwards. That's something I've yet to experience in a dryer. It has a nice finish and is really attractive to look at. It and the matching samsung flexwash are the best looking things in my laundry room by far. It has a ton of features, all of which work well. It has WiFi integration, so when hooked up to your smart home you can see the status of the dryer on your samsung fridge or smart TV. The gas dryer version is unable to be controlled via smart home; though it does display the status of the machine. The top dryer is good for delicates.. it is air dry only, so don't expect it to handle too much. That being said it's great for the occasional wool sweater or whatnot. All and all my wife and I are very happy with the dryer, and we are grateful to the insiders for the opportunity to review it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I am reviewing the Samsung FlexDry Dryer as part of the Insiders Program. I will start by saying that I had been checking out the Flex Washer & Dryer for a few weeks. I was extremely excited to be selected for the program! When the dryer was delivered the installers were extremely professional and quick. I have to say I was impressed with the first look at this Dryer! The FlexDry Dryer is a LARGE appliance, much larger than I had imagined in my house. It fit perfectly in my laundry room but made my old appliance look like a mini apartment sized dryer. Make sure to check your dimensions before purchasing this dryer. With that said it is probably the most beautifully designed appliance I have seen. I love the black stainless steel that is fingerprint proof. It has the look of stainless steel just darker but not like a full on shiny black appliance. The doors have a nice full view of your laundry as it is drying. There are no push buttons or nobs on this dryer. The controls simply require a light touch to work. I felt completely excited with all the buttons and options available along with the connectivity to the Samsung SmartThings app. The dryer I received was a gas dryer so in the SmartThings app you can only monitor the progress (I’m still happy with this) and get a notification as soon as the cycle is finished. The top dryer is the delicates dryer. I have found this to be useful for lingerie and a couple shirts that can’t be in the tumble dryer. The tumble dryer is, well, amazing! I have always had large capacity dryers so I could wash comforters and bedding but the Flexdry Dryer’s drum is huge! Even when I put in a large blanket or load of laundry it still looks half full! Being that the drum is so large the door a little low and you may want to consider purchasing the riser as I did. The tumble dryer has a very convenient light inside above the door so you can clearly see what is in the dryer. The FlexDryer has an option for just about every piece of clothing, bedding, etc you could want to wash. Being able to do more than one load at a time is such a convenience! I have been using this Dryer for a few weeks and was so impressed by its performance (and style) that I have ordered the complimentary washer. I am overly satisfied with every aspect of this Dryer and have been recommending it to friends and family. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
First things first I'm reviewing this dryer as part of the Insiders program, But the review and opinions are all my own. Second I must say how excited I was to be chosen for this program, the dryer was at my house literally 1 week after I received the call that I was chosen. Ok, now I received FlexDryer just to realize I needed the natural gas to propane conversion, kit#LPKIT-3 on Amazon for those of you who may need the same. Well, this past weekend I put the dryer through it, we dried linen, comforter, towels, delicates, heavy pieces of cotton etc. and I'm happy to report that the dryer kept up. For the first time, I have experienced a dryer that can have a load done before the next load came out of the wash.....The top of the flex dry feature it's great if you just washed that sweater, shirt, or delicates that you are trying to wear the same day. I would definitely recommend this dryer to friends and family. It's a workhorse. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
