    DO NOT BUY if you plan to stack

    This review is not about the performance of the washer/dryer, which is actually very good. This review is about Samsung customer service, or that of their official 3rd party repair companies, which for all intents and purposes are an extension of Samsung. Our units are only 2 months old and we had what we believe to be a bad sensor based on my call with Samsung. I've actually been able to rectify the problem since our call and believe we have fixed the unit without having to disassemble anything. Fact is, it was basically a user error. Our bad. However, upon scheduling the service call they informed me that I would have to unstack the units and put the units back up and that they would not do this. Two months ago I purchased a new Samsung Washer, Dryer and Stack kit. I had the unit professionally installed by Best Buy. Yet, when it comes time to do a repair, under Samsung warranty, I am responsible for unstacking and stacking the unit. To be clear, I did not purchase Geek Squad protection. Why should I if it is a decent product? The issue is with Samsung. First, everything I did from buying their product to their professional installation, should be covered under warranty. Second, this is akin to buying four new tires, finding out one is defective and the tire company saying "sure we will replace the defective tire(s) but you need to jack the car up yourself". No. I paid for what should be a good product and professional installation. Samsung makes stackable units. They sell official stack kits. They agree to have their authorized retailers (Best Buy) install them. The warranty should include full servicing including the unstacking and stacking of the units. Third, what would happen if I did unstack them and stack them back and an unrelated issue happened later. Seriously, who do you think Samsung would say is at fault if one of the reasons could be the unit having been disassembled, unstacked, stacked again and then reassembled? If they don't contract with a company that stacks/unstacks then you should sure bet they would say it was on you regardless. If you're going to leave the unit side by side, then go for it. However, if you are going to stack, please avoid going with any Samsung washer/dryer.

    Very Good, Basic Dryer

    I bought this dryer because it matched the washing machine I was needing to buy to replace a dying machine. I used to use my old dryer on one setting, Timed, and set it to 55 minutes, for everything. That worked fine for me. However, this new dryer uses sensors to determine how dry the clothes are, and stops when it feels they are done. So, again, I have been using this dryer on one setting as well, "Normal." With the matching washing machine, I wash five pairs of large jeans (38 x 34) at a time, the this dryer does a nice job of drying them. There is enough room in the drum to let them tumble and they dry enough, without being "cooked" by excessive time and heat. I have noticed that if you overload the dryer, and used the Normal setting, sometime the clothes can wad up and the stuff in the center will not be completely dry. Also, with big bulky items, like King size blankets or comforters, it is necessary to take them out and re-wad them, so they dry evenly. This is not a failing of this machine though, since this is often required even at the laundromat. Note: Once the Normal cycle is finished, if you want to fluff your clothes again, because you have let them sit for a while, you will need to switch the dryer to "Wrinkle Release," since the sensors on Normal will "see" the clothes as dry already and stop. Wrinkle Release will run for 24 minutes, regardless. If I were to be overly critical, I find that the lint trap is fussy. I'm used to one that is flat, it pulls out and you gather the lint, then slide it back into place. This machine's trap isn't radically different, but it is a cage that folds over, kind of like a taco, and you have to undo the latch to open it up and remove the lint. This takes a bit of concentration and practice since the "taco" is always trying to close back up on itself. The other thing that I find just plain silly, is the song it plays when it is done with a drying cycle. Not only it is silly, but it goes on, and on and on. I guess it is much better than a harsh buzzer, like in days of old, and I know I saw something in the owners manual about changing it, but I have told it to shut up, more than once. Looking back, I have to admit, that if that is all I can complain about, the lint trap and the end signal, than I must be pretty happy with the way this dryer its functioning. And I am.

    Hasn't worked since I bought it

    From day one it hasn’t worked, there is no heat. It turns on and runs cold air, but no heat. I called Samsung and they sent out a 3rd party repair person who said it was the motor, but since he didn’t have a motor we rescheduled for a week later. He came back, replaced the motor, still didn’t work, he said it was now the computer, which of course he didn’t have, so we rescheduled for the next week. Received a call the night before his 3 visit saying the part still wasn’t in, so it was rescheduled again for 2 days later. Received another call the day of that visit saying the tech had called in sick and they would need to reschedule. At that point I called Best Buy to exchange the product for a brand new one, they complied and the delivery was scheduled. However, I never received a confirmation call the night before delivery, so I called Best Buy to confirm. They confirmed they had all the notes for the exchange, and the delivery, but their order numbers didn’t match, so nothing was officially scheduled, and therefore I was not getting a delivery that day. I now have a new delivery day scheduled for tomorrow 1-9-15. I have had a “Brand New” broken dryer for a month now. I understand there are lemons, but all of the customer service issues between Samsung, the 3rd party repair company, and Best Buy is unacceptable. Easily the worst overall customer service experience of my life.

    My first Samsung Dryer

    All dryers have been front-loading since I can remember, but this is my first matching set, purchased with my Samsung washer (also reviewed). I purchased the pair because Consumer Reports rated Samsung models very high (and they had lower reported repairs than other models) and because Best Buy did a price match on a competitor sale. This unit must go on sale often since I paid $599, and recently I saw it at Best Buy for $579, so if you're in the market, keep your eyes opened. I made the mistake of going for the storage bins, I guess I thought it made them look cool, but WHAT A WASTE.... Nothing I use fits under the washer or dryer. Dryer Pros -VERY quiet -Easy to use control panel -Wrinkle prevention mode works well -Musical start-up and cycle finish makes me smile -Power and Cycle Start buttons -Lint screen is EASIEST to use EVER -Control panel reminds you to clean the screen Dryer Cons -Way larger than I expected -Storage bin is WORTHLESS, save your dollars -Occasionally I will have to run heavy loads through more than one cycle to get towels dry, but I own that I may not be using a high enough temp the first time I will follow-up on this review based on my experience. This unit looks great next to it's washer counterpart, and the performance is as good as I have heard from people.

    disappointed in this dryer

    I read every review for months and decided to purchase this dryer on Black Friday based on the reviews and the price. Notwithstanding the nightmare I had getting it delivered from Best Buy (more on that later) I have been singularly unimpressed with its performance. Its very basic, it does not dry the clothes in the preprogrammed times and I have had to run it on a time cycle a second time in almost every wash I have done. In retrospect I think I should have gone with a dryer with more bells and whistles. I do not recommend buying this dryer, I should have gone with an LG one to match my washer (WHICH I LOVE). Now as to the delivery, I ordered the dryer received a confirmation date and approximate time, I waited all day and then received a voice mail stating that the delivery personnel came to my home and I refused the delivery stating I did not order it. This being completely untrue led me to 5 hours of being placed on hold, disconnected, insulted and finally being told that they would try and deliver in the next 48 hours. I was also promised a credit. At 5:45 am the next day (a sunday) my door bell rang over and over startling us out of a sound sleep. It was BEST BUY delivering my dryer! They scraped the walls taking the old dryer out, did not thank us for the tip and did not switch the swing on the door. I had to force them to come back in to change the vent I had paid for in advance. I did not get the credit. After another 1-2 hours a week later I got the credit. Very disappointed in Best Buy.

    Tensioner/Idler Failed 2 Months Out of Warranty

    We purchased this dryer because we purchased the same model 12 months earlier and it is still performing flawlessly. Manufacturing has moved to Mexico since and cost-saving measures are in place. The most recent model we received was a DV42H5000EW/A3 This version of the dryer has a plastic sleeve bearing on the tensioner/idler pulley. This failed 14 months after purchase. ($220 to fix). The pulley was seizing up and was (upon inspection after repair) failing with burn-marks on the wheel. The replacement tensioner/idler pulley has a ball-bearing assy replacing the sleeve. It appears much more reliable. In the photos, I've included a picture of the pulley you DO NOT want, and a picture of the pulley you DO want. Hopefully someone who is up to date can ensure us the ball bearing pulley is currently in use.

    Great Dryer

    After 14 years, I finally had to replace my old top load washer, so I decided to go ahead and buy a new Washer/Dryer set. I spent about 2 hours in the store looking at all the models and trying to make up my mind. I've wanted to try Samsung appliances, so I finally decided to do so and purchased this (and it's washer counterpart) dryer. So far, I'm very pleased with this dryer. It definitely dries my clothes quicker than my old dryer. I love the wrinkle prevent option so that I can leave the dryer unattended and it will continue to "fluff" or rotate the clothes for 180 minutes (3 hours). The only problem I have is that the control panel is not lined up correctly with the front faceplate of the machine. I'm not sure if this happened in shipping, unboxing, or installation. So far the machine works fine, but since I did purchase the geek squad protection I'm going to call them out to take a look and hopefully fix it. This is why I gave it 4-stars. When it's fixed, I'll bump it up to 5. As I stated in my washer review, I hate that Best Buy pressures you to write reviews so quickly after purchasing an item. I've only had this unit for about 4 weeks, so I still feel it's too new to comment on reliability and prolonged use. I'll make updates if things go sour in the coming months.

    LOVE this dryer!

    I've had this machine three days now and I'm real pleased. I've done a half dozen loads and I can say it's a pleasure to use. It thoroughly dries the clothes and all but 1 item have been wrinkle free. (The one wrinkled item was one pair of jeans in a big load; they recommend running jeans on a different setting; I'll try that. That being said, my other jeans came out wrinkle free on the "Normal" setting.) My prior dryer (a Maytag - more than 10 years old) took a lot longer to dry clothes. Perhaps it's because the Samsung's drum is horizontal -- does that help dry the clothes faster? Whatever it is, it does the job, in a very reasonable amount of time (far faster than my old one!). Some loads are done in 44 or so minutes. Bulkier items (comforters, blankets) take a little over an hour. That's perfectly OK with me. I like, too, the glass window. You can visually see when the clothes are dry (plus my dog finds it fascinating! LOL). I do not find it any noisier than any other dryer; I have a laundry room and a little hum is to be expected. No biggie. So much faster and efficient than my last dryer I just wanted to post a review! (I used the reviews in making my purchase; I found them very helpful and so am returning the favor!)
