    Very Annoying

    Posted
    bfanciu

    After a significant amount of research and toiling over the excessive prices for dryers (it seems like they've doubled in the last 10 years#, I landed on this model, primarily due to a high Consumer Reports rating, an extremely big discount, and because it looks very similar to a Kenmore Elite I replaced. In fact, it fits the Kenmore base perfectly and, at a glance, is a very close match to my old washer that it sits next to. I have had it for 3 months now, and I'm at a point where I can say I definitely don't like it. There are several significant irritants with this dryer. First, it balls-up almost all large items like no other dryer I have ever used. Sheets, towels, and even jeans are ALWAYS wound in a tight mess of a knot, along with everything else that gets caught in the wrath. This happens within a few minutes into the cycle. In particular, drying sheets requires at least 3 complete removals and unwindings during the 1+ hour of drying time. If you forget to do this, you'll easily triple the dry time, having to unravel and restart the load--they'll be wound so tight that nothing will dry. I don't know if it is the speed of the drum, the odd paddles #they're shaped like none other I've seen before#, or what. Second, it developed an annoying rattle inside, toward the back, after a few months of use. I read another review that mentioned a "scraping" noise, which may be the same thing I'm experiencing. It sounds more like a rattle, in my opinion--probably some metal object that has become loose inside. This isn't a huge deal for me, as my laundry room is in the basement, but it is extremely annoying. Additionally, there are a few other minor annoyances. Like when checking clothes mid-cycle #or unraveling, per my earlier comment#, there is a chime to indicate that the door is open, just like on a car when you leave the keys in the ignition. This is a completely unnecessary and annoying feature. Also, the unit has to be turned off and on between loads. It takes several seconds to turn on #very much like a Samsung TV, in fact#. Why can't I make my selections and push "start" like every other dryer I've ever owned? I mentioned the dry time for sheets--it seems long, but judging from my last dryer, it takes about the same length of time. The plusses? It looks nice and has very good capacity for the size. It does dry thoroughly if you use the "more dry" setting and don't overload it. The lint catch is an ingenious design that prevents lint from sneaking past--much better than any other I've seen. However, the benefits do not outweigh the problems. In hindsight, I would have gladly paid another $200 for a dryer without these issues.

    We were buying a new machine to install in an old house. Best buy offered to send out a pre-installation team to make recommendation for hook up situation. This service was credited toward the purchase. We had to update the gas supply line to meet current codes. The first dryer came with a crooked leg so hook up was incomplete. Best buy quickly took care to send a replacement dryer in a week. Installation of the gas dryer ended up with a gas leak. Their installer came out again but didn't find the leak with their bubble technique. The smell persisted so we had to contact our gas company; they found the leak using a detecting device. All this took another week to resolve. As far as the dryer goes, it works all right for now. I don't know how the steam option is better than not having the steam in a dryer, but it dries quicker than I expected and leaves the clothes dried and fluffy. I didn't use a softener in the wash, and don't know if they`d recommend softener sheets. The drying options are easy to choose. You can even program your own. The lint pocket makes cleaning easy. I am quite happy with my dryer.

    Very Disappointing Purchase of Samsung Dryer

    Posted

    I purchased Samsung Dryer Model: DV42H5000GW on August 29th 2016. By the first week of January 2018, the dryer started making a knocking sound. When I opened it up I saw a crack along the Dryer's drum weld. The Dryer is out of warranty so Samsung did nothing to fix the situation. Doing a little research revealed that Weld failure is a common issue with Samsung Dryers. I have owned other Samsung products with no issue but I am disappointed with their customer support as it relates to this experience. I will never buy another Samsung product again and I will share my thoughts with my family and friends.

    Front load set, second try

    Overall- they work. That’s about it. I would never buy Samsung again. Extremely disappointed with their customer service. I tried to run my first load and the washer flooded the floor below. Samsung told me that their warranties are null and void if you hook the machines up yourself. You must be licensed by Samsung to hook up their machines. Luckily, Best Buy stood up and replaced the machine so it’s not flooding- but now the door on the second machines don’t latch properly so either I’m going to have to figure out how to fix myself or have Best Buy bring a third set. These machines are sooooo not worth the trouble. They’re a week and a half old now.... And btw: when they swapped them out they just delivered them, I had to install and get them moved into the closet by myself a second time.

    We had eyes on an LG dryer in same price range with similar features but it had a very long lead time (4-6 weeks). Although we were initially disappointed, this Samsung Dryer also had great reviews and could be scheduled for delivery within a few days. In addition to the great delivery service experience through Best Buy, the dryer was really easy to set up and start. It is a very quiet machine that looks very sharp, has an easy to manage settings knob and additional settings options push button and led display panel. We have had the dryer for just over a week and live it so much we look forward to buying matching wash machine. I highly recommend this dryer.

    I love my Samsung washer, I've had it for 3 weeks now and I can't stop telling everyone how wonderful they are! We have them in our garage but Even when I'm in the garage I can hardly hear it washing. The clothes really get washed too. We have a teenager and a 5 yr old that leave their clothes really dirty but this washer gets all the dirt out!! I got them because they were the cheeper ones and looked great but honestly when I was waiting for them to be delivered I started reading the reviews and I saw a lot that had really bad reviews. I was a lil scared but now that I have them I have tried every load possible and I love all the features. They're definitely worth every penny!!!

    Don't dry sheets or blankets

    Well, the dryer does great job drying clothes or regular items. When it comes to bed sheet or blankets larger items, the blades in the drum just roll them up into a big ball which leave the middle still wet after its cycle. On the outside, all the buttons and knobs are nicely done, but some how there are deficiencies on the drum design that roll up larger items. Whenever I am drying bed sheets I have to stop the dryer in the middle of its cycle, pull out the sheets and untangle them all and start again to get a good drying. It's a pain the the behind! Will consider other trusted brand in making washer/dryer.

    Don't buy floor models

    Bought floor model since we needed a gas dryer right away. When we get it home there were dents in it that we could not see in the store since that side was against another dryer and the wrapped it for us to take home. Once we brought it home and hooked it up we turned it on. It made a load noise while tumbling and burning on the outside of the dryer. I had to call for service the same day that we bought it. When the repair man came the following week he found that the drum was bent and had to order a new one. He also had to order a new belt for the drum and repair the dent in the wall.
