    Super efficient dryer

    We purchased this dryer after our old gas dryer stopped working. After having it for about a year, here are my thoughts: PROS I am still very impressed with how quickly it dries clothes! Where the previous dryer took about twice as long to dry a full load as our washer took to wash a load, this dryer speedily dries a load even FASTER than the wash cycle. Maybe all dryers are just that efficient now and our washer is out-dated; I am not sure. But I am thoroughly impressed every time I use it. The wrinkle release feature is also nice; I like to fold the clothes as soon as the dryer completes so that the clothes don't sit in there and get wrinkled. This feature allows you to leave it in there for an additional couple of hours after the drying is done; it will tumble and add heat every few minutes to keep the clothes from settling down and getting wrinkly. Perfect for when I can't get to the folding right away. The lint trap is also in a convenient place - right inside the door. It also won't let you start a new load until you have checked the lint trap to make sure it is empty. Helpful for me since I forget often. It is very quiet when it runs, compared to our last dryer. We have a small laundry room right nest to a number of bedrooms, and my kids say they can only hear it slightly now when it runs at night while they are trying to sleep. CONS My biggest complaint about the dryer is the location of the front door. Our previous dryer door was tall enough that you could leave a laundry basket on the floor and still open the door - convenient to unload the clothes directly from the dryer into the laundry baskets by scooping the clothes out. Because this door on this dryer is mounted lower, the door opens and hits a basket in front of the swinging door. This means that you have to open the door wide, then put the basket in front of the opening in order to scoop out the clothes. Then you have to move the now full basket out of they way in order to close the door again. Inconvenient for our small little laundry room. I suppose you could purchase one of those dryer bases with a drawer to put under it to alleviate this problem - it would also make it easier to load an unload since you don't have to bend down so far. But we don't want to spend another $200 or so just for that. The other complaint I have is just a manufacturer's defect; it allows a small bit of a gas smell out of the dryer when not in use. Not enough to be dangerous, just a little whiff of gas. and it doesn't occur super often, just every once in a while. We had the hookup checked by a professional to make sure we didn't have any gas leak - and it was not anything with the line, just something inside the dryer itself. Its not dangerous, just kind of an annoyance. SUMMARY Overall, I give it 4 stars for its efficiency and quietness. If its door was higher, it would be perfect. A very good purchase at the price we paid for it. A simple machine that does its job well. I'd buy it again.

    I am happy with my purchase. I originally bought GE 3.8-cu ft Top-Load Washer/GE 7.2-cu ft Gas Dryer, but it was so loud during washes! I returned and am so glad that I did. I think Samsung is way a better brand in general even though GE has been around since forever. I have the matching washer and dryer of this model (Samsung 4.0-cu ft Top-Load Washer). They are big! *I had 2 MUST HAVE'S due to the million reviews that I read: 1. Top loading machine. There were a lot of complaints with the front loaders not being able to add in last minute clothes once cycle began, the front rubber area tended to get moldy/leaky. uh gross!; 2. I wanted to be able to control the water levels ie- tell it what size my load was versus the machine "weighing the clothes"/adding water accordingly. There were a ton of reviews that said there was never enough water in the machine/clothes don't clean/came out lightly damp, etc. The two requirements above helped narrow down my options leading into a decision because A. there are way more front loading washers than top loading and B.there were like two washers that gave you control of water levels. I can confidently say - I am happy with my investment. A girl needs options you know! Best Buy is a dream.

    Dryer works, but moisture sensor is inaccurate.

    Posted

    This dryer is well made, but the moisture sensor in it seems to be inaccurate. Particularly with towels, denim jeans, and heavier bedding, the moisture sensor will detect my items as dry when they are still fairly damp. Putting it on the "More Dry" or "Very Dry" setting for heavier items at least helps, and sometimes resolves this issue. I was hoping this gas dryer would be more efficient, but having to re-run drying cycles or do timed cycles makes it less efficient compared to similar models. My vent is a short and very straight run. I'll probably attempt to replace it with a fully rigid vent soon - I'm hoping that will help. Additionally, this dryer plays a minute and a half long song at the end of its dry cycle, and it's impossible to turn it off as far as I've been able to find. It's funny at first, but it's starting to get old. My washer, which is also a Samsung has an option to turn this off.

    Beware- Serenading dryer

    Bought this dryer when my more expensive LG broke after 10 years. It's a Decent dryer, basic features and good size. The singlemost annoying feature is the "song" it plays when the cycle is done. It is literally 30 seconds long, not just a chime or two, but inexplicably plays an entire song at a fairly high volume that cannot be adjusted. It's quite annoying, particularly for someone who often runs loads after the kids bedtimes. I have no idea who at Samsung thought we would want an entire serenade when the laundry was done. I can only assume they did not do any market testing on this "feature." Perhaps they used to work at Fisher Price, because the tone is similar to a cell phone or childrens toy...quite annoying. I am betting they end up with a lot of returns for this simple reason alone. Which is a shame because other than that, it seems to be a decent dryer.

    Good dryer for the money

    This is a great dryer for the money with my experience. My dad needed a new dryer and he's not one for fancy appliances but has always had Samsung. We have had it for about 2 months and it's been a great dryer. No issues with the auto sensor like other reviews state, the clothes are always dry when we use this setting. The song at the end of each cycle is very long, but the dryer is in our basement so we never hear it anyways.I like that the door can be switched to either side. In my opinion it's a great dryer, well built, and perfect for someone that just wants a simple dryer with the basic settings such as auto sense, wrinkle release, delicate and timed dry.

    Don't buy this dryer!

    It stopped drying clothes after the best buy 14 day return policy. We were given false information by sales associate, there is no light inside the dryer. Installation was not done properly, my husband had to reattach the vent tube to the dryer, the gas line was also not in a safe position. Using the dry sensor for towels on the very dry and high heat setting, three hours later the towels were still damp. When using the timed dry for an hour, dryer stops by itself after 5 minutes! I now am waiting a week for the samsung service to come out. I am in need of a dishwasher but I will not be purchasing from Best Buy.

    Great For The Price!

    This dryer is great for the price. It does what it is supposed to do and I have not had any problems with it, until today. This dryer is only 6 months old and today it started making a squealing noise. Luckily I purchased the 3 year Geek Squad Protection plan for this item, and was able to schedule a repair right away with Geek Squad. Apparently there is a known issue with the idler which is causing the squealing noise and is an easy repair. Overall, I love this dryer and would definitely recommend it to a friend or family member.

    Samsung dryer is fine; Best Buy service horrible

    It took me 1 long phone call and 2 store visits to purchase Samsung dryer with delivery/installation. Each time, Best Buy staff gave me different answers to my questions - most of them wrong. When I completed order, I was told dryer would be installed but I also had to buy special connectors. When dryer was delivered, there was no installation, only drop off. I had to install dryer myself and connectors were all wrong; had to buy new ones from Home Depot. Entire experience very frustrating - will never buy any appliance from Best Buy ever again!
