    Junk after 2 years

    We bought this product just about 2 years ago on the dot and it already is done. The machine ran great and had no problems until this past week. It goes through the drying cycle fine but when it turns to the cooling mode, the heating element doesn’t shut off. The unit gets so hot you can barley touch the outer shell. It continues to run like this until it is shut off manually by pressing the power button (fire hazzard). Got one error code about one week ago and it was HC which is incorrect heat or something. I am pretty handy so where the warranty was up after one year i wanted to fix it myself. We could barley find any information on this code and all everyone wanted to do was send a technician out.

    I Love this dryer!!!!!

    I purchased the red front loader washer and dryer. Unfortunately it was to big for my laundry space. I had to select a top loader and i am glad i chose this dryer. It dries quietly and actually sings a tune when its done!!!!

    Do not buy!!

    Had this dryer for a couple of years now and all of a sudden it turns on but when you hit start to do a cycle the drum won’t turn. Called support and tried everything. I should have known better to buy one of their products. Had one of their LED TV and it died after 3 years. A man at Best Buy told me he has a lot of them doing that right after the warranty expires. Never going to buy any of your products again!!!

    Will break down at 18 months

    stopped heating right outside of the warranty. ongoing issue with this model apparently, waste of money. it will break down after 16-18 months. i love samsung, just not this model.

    Great dryer…when it works

    i have had to have the wheel for the belt replaced because it melted. the moisture sensor has stopped working so have to used timed drying and now there is no heat. so disappointing.

    Buyer beware

    i had a twelve month warranty on this, and i find it awfully peculiar that just three months past warranty expiring, its broke. buyer beware

    poor quality

    we purchased this dryer a few years ago. in less than a year we had to have the motor replaced. now the heating element has failed. very frustrating. we will never purchase a samsung dryer again.
